Beyond the Sunset (The Instilling Hope Remix) )
velvetfiction: (Default)
Written for the prompt "Remus/Tonks early in their aquaintance, prior to the whole, 'too old, too poor' stuff. Just hangin' at Grimmauld Place."


"Oh I don't know, Padfoot, I think it gives me a distinguished air."

"Distinguished is not the word I would have chosen, Moony. Tell him, Dora."

Tonks looked up from her magazine at the sound of her cousin's voice. When Moody had told her he had some people he wanted her to meet earlier in the summer, being reintroduced to her supposedly mass-murdering cousin was not what she had expected. But after all the shouting and explanations had finished, she was thrilled to reconnect with Sirius. She had vague memories of him visiting when she was younger, always having time or a sweet for her.

"Tell who what, Siri?"

"Tell this idiot," he gestured to Remus who had followed him into the room, "that the - the - thing - on his upper lip cannot be considered a mustache and certainly doesn't make him look distinguished!"

Tonks giggled and unabashedly studied Remus, who colored slightly under her frank gaze. "I think it's kind of cute," she replied.

"Bah!" Sirius exclaimed, throwing his hands up in the air. "Betrayed! Betrayed by my own kin, I tell you!" he cried, and threw himself in an armchair in a way that would have made his mother scream like a banshee.

"Thank you, Tonks. I always knew you had better taste than the mutt," Remus replied politely as sat down next to her in a far more controlled manner.

"Hey, now! I'm not sure that can be considered a compliment!" she complained with a sparkle in her eyes.

"True. It doesn't take much to achieve that, does it?"

"Oi! You don't have to talk about me like I'm not here you know!" Sirius pouted.

"Oh go chase your tail, Siri!" Tonks admonished. Practically before she finished speaking, she found herself being mercilessly attacked by a very wet dog's tongue while Remus slid to the floor in helpless laughter.

Title: A Charms Lesson
Word Count: 100.
Characters/Pairings: Lily, Sirius
Challenge: Miscommunication

“I’m sorry, Lils. I’m really sorry.”

Lily continued to stare at Sirius in disgust.

“I honestly thought you said celAre, not celEre,” he protested.

“No, you twit. Celere, as in quickly? Not celare, as in vanish! It’s a charm to make hair grow faster, not vanish!”

Sirius looked abashed. “Oh,” he said. “I didn’t know that.”

“You’d think a pureblood wizard would have at least a rudimentary understanding of Latin,” Lily muttered.

Undeterred, he said brightly, “Now you know what you’d look like if you ever wanted to shave your head!”

“Shut up and try it on yourSELF this time.”

Character(s): MWPP & Co.
Warnings: N/A
Summary: You know the saying "For want of a nail, a kingdom was lost"? Well, this is like that. Only different.
Author's Notes: To my dear recipient: Well, you asked for "something
happy, exciting, colourful and fun." Happy, exciting and hopefully fun I've given you. Colourful too, but probably not quite the way you meant it. . . And there's certainly mischief. Enjoy!

Rating: PG for mild swearing
Prompt: 2. Fic or art (not songfic) based on 'In Joy and Sorrow'

Any other notes, warnings, etc.: Obviously, spoilers for DH; I hope this meets with your approval - I think I've got the 'new twist on an old theme' part covered, at any rate! Many thanks to my husband, for selflessly throwing himself between me and this plot bunny and helping me beat it into submission.
