The sky was dark tonight, only clouds, and the orange reflections of the streetlights. Nothing green. )

The life-eating angsty fic of doom is currently standing at 5000 words / a third done, so I thought I'd have a break and write something a little more light-hearted. This comes purely from my reaction to the odd comments about an AU where Lily and James are alive. My reaction is usally to flail, and stammer, yeah, but, yeah, but, Voldemort! So, here be AU. I'm having fun playing with this, so ask if you want more. :)

Summary: Harry's got a letter...

Harry, staring at his father, for a moment thought he might be someone else, someone far less scatter-brained and easygoing. )

the weather in spring is rather finicky -- be sure to wear layers, with at least one good jumper!

Author's notes: Seventh year. Very silly ^_^ Title and odd allusion misquoted from Julius Caesar. Remus is butchering Mark Antony's speech.

Notes: Peter and Lily go to see Richard III, but there are Death Eaters in the audience and things aren't about to get complicated... Title and quotes from Richard III. I've taken one small liberty with history. There was a performance of Richard III at the National in 1979 but not until October. And I've not checked the actual cast list, for obvious reasons.

Notes: Apologies for the delay - a combination of RL nasties, original fic demanding my attention and this one growing insanely. I wasn't going to cut it here but decided to for the sake of space. Tomorrow's will continue straight from here. Andromeda Tonks throws a dinner party. This one is for everyone who asked if Nymphadora was going to appear in this series. Title from Richard III

Wordcount: 2006
Prompt: soup
Notes: My original idea for this included the dire consequences of mending Sirius' telly, lots of references to The Clangers and James and Sirius pretending to be soupdragons. Then I remembered I was meant to be using Lily's pov and decided to write about Andromeda instead. Feel free to imagine the swanee whistles in the background. Title from Richard III
Apologies for getting behind. I've been busy stressing about original fic and job interviews. After this morning's interview, though, I have a job. *gleeful dance of sheer relief* I don't start until the 23rd so hopefully I'll be on top of everything by then and able to finish on time.

Prompt: Pink flower in a pile of snow.
Notes: Lalalala. Nothing here. No fic. Not one. Because I'm not doing [livejournal.com profile] blanketforts. As should be obvious by now. Title from Richard III. Remus doesn't like commuting. I got fairly creative in trying to work out how the wizarding world travels to work. This is a mix of creative interpretation and sheer invention, born of the almighty headache I got trying to make sense of it. As far as I know there ain't no such thing as a Commercial Floo. Muggle Lorry drivers did declare a strike on 3rd January 1979, though.

Title: Conkers
Rating: G
Summary: Lily teaches the Mauraders to play conkers.
Author's note: I started this back in September, before Scarves and Hats. It was meant to be the opening scene to a bigger Remus/Sirius story but I've 95% left fandom now and it's never going to be finished. So I polished up the end of the opening scene and here's a little snippet from the Mauraders' fifth year for you all.

Conkers )

The only other unfinished pieces I have are a angsty Remus visits Azkaban piece and Sirius/Remus smut with jelly babies. Is anyone interested in either if I make the effort to finish them? (I hate leaving loose ends)

Wordcount: 882
Prompt: For the last two prompts:
toffee apples

and...

This is the story of the boys who loved you
Who love you now and loved you then
And some were sweet, some were cold and snuffed you
And some just laid around in bed.

Some had crumbled you straight to your knees
Did it cruel, did it tenderly
Some had crawled their way into your heart
To rend your ventricles apart
This is the story of the boys who loved you.

Notes: Sixth year. I've finished!! Here, as an epilogue, let Peter Pettigrew have the last word. This has been a fantastic month and after 29 fics and 46889 words it must come to an end.

Prompt: Rain on the windows.
Notes: Sixth year. Sirius Black hates being introspective. Luckily, he's evolved a way to drive it out of his mind. James, Remus and Lily are just trying to survive to the end of the day. Exceedingly silly. (For information, Hogwarts has been struck by a flu epidemic. As a consequence, all unaffected sixth and seventh years have been appointed interim prefects)

Time goes by from year to year
And no one asks why I am standing here
But I have my answer as I look to the sky
This is the time of no reply.

Notes: Pre-slash. Sixth year. Lily waits for the Marauders after a full moon. I struggled with this prompt so the influence isn't obvious. It's semi-there, though. Apologies for the lateness - I was going to catch up tonight but one of my housemates brought home Dangermouse on DVD. So, um, apologies if Peter Pettigrew sounds like Penfold ;)
