OK, so I've come to terms with the fact that there is no earthly way I can squeeze out a chapter of ACOC today and also get the sleep I need to function. Yes, I suck. Here, have some puppy-lovin' instead.

Title: Highland Fling (3/8?)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] pica_scribit (complete fic archive)
Word Count: ~7500 and counting…
Rating: M (getting there...)
Warnings: Hot M/M sex, Scottish Remus, American Sirius
Genre: Total romance novel, present-day non-magic AU
Pairing: Remus/Sirius
Summary: The summer before college, Sirius goes backpacking through Scotland in order to escape his family's expectations. In a small village in the Highlands, an unexpected flirtation turns his whole world upside down.
Note: I've added a glossary of Scots terms to the bottom of all posted chapters. Some of them may be obvious, but I have no idea what's intuitive for other people, especially non-native English speakers. Hope it helps!

His Aunt Fiona raised her eyebrows. "And how's it goin' wi' your laddie?"

Remus blushed and looked away. "I dinna ken. I think maybe I was wrong aboot him."

"The wa' he was lookin' at ye last night?" His aunt chuckled. "He couldna keep his een off ye! Nay, he fancies ye, right enough."

He made a face. "Weel, could ye tell him that? I dinna think he kens it, himself."

Oh, this story just always leaves me smiling! Even if there was a bit of trouble in the middle, it was still pleasant trouble (oh dear that makes no sense.....pleasant to read, I think).

The bit at the end, with Remus thinking this is pretty much what this tree is meant for was great. Maybe I'll just have to go semi-pagan, as there's often a much healthier outlook on sex as a part of life to be appreciated. XP

Oh, no! Now I'm promoting homosexuality and paganism?! Someone call the Religious Right! Harry Potter is clearly a gateway drug to HELL! ;p

Glad you're enjoying the story!

HA HA HA. Ok, this comment really made me laugh out loud. I'm calling the conservative police on you.

And btw. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I've so been caught up in something saying "what the fuck am I doing?" and doing it anyway. I am loving how you're writing these versions of them. Can't wait for more, it's always over too soon!

*grin* Thanks! I'm really enjoying writing this, even though romance novels are totally formulaic:

1) Ooh, you look nice!
2) Oh, but we must not, because _______.
3) But we want to!
4) OK, just this once. *shagshagshag*
5) Right. Done now. Never again!
6) *introspective bit*
7) *massive misunderstanding*
8) I really, really want to make this work! *romantic gesture*
9) happily ever after...
