Title: On the Mend
Author: [ profile] mrstater
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters & Pairings: Remus Lupin, Severus Snape, Harry Potter, Teddy Lupin; inferred Remus/Tonks, Snape/Lily
Rating & Warnings: PG-13 for language
Format & Word Count: one-shot, 4315 words
Summary: Having survived the final battle, Remus Lupin and Severus Snape need healing from more than just their war wounds. AU.
Author's Notes: Genfic from [ profile] mrstater? Remus and Snape genfic? Note the &, not the /. ;) I know, my gob is smacked, too. But I've been reading a bit of Snape AU fic this week, which caused me to re-read bits of Deathly Hallows, and it got me to thinking about how sexy Alan Rickman is what a shame it is that Snape dies, because it would be really interesting to see how the Order members (particularly Remus) and wizarding society at large would interact with Snape once they know his true role in everything. Combine those thoughts with a quote that kept going through my head, "Time wounds all heels," which an English teacher of mine who was most definitely a Slytherin always used to say, and this is the result.

Obviously it's AU since nobody dies, and I've taken a few liberties with the setting, as well, because if I'd had Remus and Snape recovering in St. Mungo's, their injuries would likely have them in separate wards (Spell Damage and Dangerous Bites), and the whole premise depended on them being stuck in the same place together. Hopefully it works. :)

Summary: When Remus comes home, he must face more than just a Metamorphmagus.
Author's Note: Not sure where this little idea came from; I finally got a little me time the other night, took a notebook in the bath, determined to write something, got the first line, and then the rest of this happened. I have another idea for something a little more light-hearted, but I've been wanting to do something with Remus and Andromeda for a long time. Thanks to [ profile] godricgal for betaing! Hope y'all like. :)

Author's Note: For [ profile] katyhasclogs, who had a earlier this week. My apologies -- I tried not to write you an angsty birthday drabble, but this furry little plot bunny bit and refused to let go. As I recall, though, you do like your R/T with a side order of angst, so I hope this will do. ;)

Rating & Warnings: PG-13 for abusive language and a post-torture situation
Summary: Remus and Tonks run from birthday parties and wedding receptions, but bigotry catches up with them. So do the side effects of pregnancy. (Sequel to Water Falls and Once)
Author's Note: An attempt at making sense of Remus' and Tonks' abrupt departure from Harry's birthday party at the Burrow, the aftermath of Bill and Fleur's crashed wedding, and Remus' meltdown at Grimmauld Place, this fic was originally written for the "Not Forgotten" ficathon at [ profile] rt_challenge and was inspired by the prompts, I If you gave me nothing / Nothing more than this / I would have the / memory to keep / Let me make a simple wish / As we fall asleep / Let me wake with you by my side ("Always" by the October Project) , and a photo of a woman with flying pink hair. The excerpt at the beginning of the fic is from Deathly Hallows Chapter 7, and one line from Chapter 11. Concrit and feedback are welcome.

As always, thanks to my awesome beta-reader, [ profile] godricgal.

Rating & Warnings: R for sex. Lots of sex.
Summary: Remus and Tonks have been a little careless. The consequences.
Author's Note: A sequel to Water Falls, this fic was written for the March 2008 "Not Forgotten" ficathon at [profile] rt_challenge , for the prompt: Sex contains all, / Bodies, Souls, meanings, proofs, purities, delicacies, results, promulgations, / Songs, commands, health, pride, the maternal mystery, the seminal milk; / All hopes, benefactions, bestowals, / All the passions, loves, beauties, delights of the earth, / All the governments, judges, gods, follow’d persons of the earth, / These are contain’d in sex, as parts of itself, and justifications of itself. ("A Woman Waits For Me" by Walt Whitman) The excerpt at the end of the fic is from Chapter 7 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Many thanks, as always, to [personal profile] godricgal .

Summary: The Battle Of the Seven Potters bereaves Tonks of her mentor after an attempt on her life. The aftermath.
Author's Note: Originally written for the March 2008 "Not Forgotten" ficathon at [profile] rt_challenge , for the prompt "distance," this story is a "missing moment" from chapter five of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The italicized excerpt at the beginning are JK Rowling's words, not mine--if they were, I'd call him Remus, not Lupin ;). Many thanks to [personal profile] godricgal , who deserves the title World's Best Beta. Really.
