It has been 3 days. Three days since Sirius Black had lost it all. Three days since he was left alone with the haunting thoughts and the fears the dementors evoked inside him. Three days. Which meant it was November 3rd today. It was Sirius’s birthday.
Birthdays. What a strange day to celebrate. But Sirius had never minded them once he started going to Hogwarts. Because he had people to celebrate with him. He had his- his friends, James, and Remus- and oh god no. he couldn’t think about them. It hurt too much to think about them. To think about what they did on his birthdays. The parties, the cake, the presents, the love. No! Stop thinking about all of that! They’re gone now. It’s all over. And it’s all your fault.
When Sirius was younger he believed that when people died they became stars. High up in the sky, they watched over their loved ones. He had stopped believing that when he grew up but as Sirius sat on the cold cement floor of his Azkaban cell, he started believing again. He looked up at the sky and looked at the moon and the stars and hoped that James and Lily and Remus could hear him now. “I’m sorry,” he whispered. “I’m so so sorry.” He repeated over and over again. He wrapped his arms around himself and rocked back and forth repeating “I’m sorry” softly into his arms. And he cried. He hadn’t cried about his friends yet. He was numb before. But now the tears came, and he let them come. He couldn’t stop them, just like he couldn’t get Peter, just like he couldn’t hug Remus, and just like he couldn’t save James and Lily.
Lately I’ve been ADORING texting fics so I thought, why not?
The fic would be literally just a muggle-modern au of the marauders later years in hogwarts. It would also feature a very Argentinian Marlene (which I love since I’m argentinian) and a lot of my favorite songs!!
Animotropolis is a lovely inclusive city. Home to one of the best Gifted programs in the world. It is home to many heroes. But that does not mean it is free of problems, or sinister figures looming in the dark. Please meet four of it's citizens whoms stories cross over but do not fully align.
There are many sides to every story. And sometimes you miss details or missunderstand if you only have one point of view. So I'm writing this one from 4 perspectives. You pick the order in which you want to read.
@thecrowslullaby‘s mcfucking challenge thing that took me 200 years because I was only working on it when I was really bored (hence all the doodles). I was also gonna draw Thomas but if you wanna see what I’d draw him in just look at my Swap Thomas because I literally have the exact outfit I draw him in.
marauders raising the weasleys part 7 !!!!! (long awaited i’m so sorry but here it is)
- james has gotten each of the kids their own stuffie and they’ve all absolutely adored it , charlie got a dragon (“actually, i think it’s a lizard dad”) percy got a lion, fred and george both got cats, ron got a turtle, and ginny got a giraffe !! they all treasure them, yes even bill, who takes his stuffed cow to hogwarts with him
- lily has a habit of taking pictures and videos of the kids for memories, and so for mother’s day or her birthday, bill takes her camera and films all the kids rambling things about her that they love !!! (ron; “i love mommy’s hair!!” , fred; “mom dances with me around the kitchen!!” )
- when bill was little, he’d get anxious around people and they had to commute to get to his school, so sirius would let him trace words and stars on his arms to help him calm down !! even as a teenager, bill still gets anxious and you can 100% find him seated next to sirius, tracing words and sirius rambling off “did you just trace fuck on my arm you menace”
- the “baby star” charlie has never ever ever been embarrassed of his nickname and one day went to school with tiny star stickers pressed on his cheeks and refused to take them off all day
- ^ he wanted to go as a star for halloween one year but settled on being a cowboy
- percy had to do a project on the solar system one year, but the kids kept bother him when he tried to work on it, so he made them the solar system. charlie was the sun, ron was earth, harry was mercury, ginny was pluto, fred was uranus, george was jupiter, bill was mars! (and yes, the boys joined in james was saturn, sirius was venus, and peter was neptune)
- percy got a 100% simply because remus talked to his teacher before hand and honestly, the project was what was asked of him
- uncle regulus steals a kid for a day !! he does steal one quite often, and they always come back sun kissed and candy filled and they ramble on and on about how “uncle reggie took me to the beach !! we made shell necklaces look mom look !!!”
- speaking of, regulus 100% has pictures of each kid in his wallet because he loves them and shows off his niece and nephews to anyone who listens !! and he takes them whenever he can and teaches them about the stars and wishes and shows them pranks to pull on sirius
- peter got roped into being the parent to go to parent-teacher night for all the kids (bet gone wrong) and he had to explain to fred’s, bills, and ron’s teacher that he was not a single parent and he did not need advice, he was perfectly capable despite the fact that george switched places with fred on the way there
- GEORGE HAS A FLOWER COLLECTION AND A FLOWER FOR EACH OF HIS PARENTS !! everytime he sees that specific flower he has to pick it and rush home to give it to them !! “daddy look look ! i got you a flower!”
- charlie and james do infact what the sunrise every morning because they’re the first people up !!! james makes charlie some hot chocolate (“extra mallows please!!”) and they wrap up in a blanket on the porch !! james tells charlie stories , or sometimes they sit silence, but it’s one of their favorite times of day !! (sometimes remus wakes up and joins them !)
- peter broke his arm once and ginny and percy decorated his cast and would get super mad if anyone else tried to write on it !
- ron really likes to act like he’s a zombie, for some reason (it’s sirius’ fault) ans makes james run around the house so ron can try to catch him
- fred at some point picked up an american accent and talked with it for weeks , lily has no idea where he got it but she 100% joins in because it irritates the boys and puts a huge smile on fred’s face
- JAMES TEACHES BILL AND GINNY HOW TO PLAY THE GUITAR AND GETTS TRHEM GUITARS FOR THEIR BIRTHDAYS AND AT SOME POINT THEY START PLAYING HIM SONGS AND HE DOESNT CRY (yes he does)
- as ron gets older, the nickname “jellybean” doesn’t stick, but lily is the only person that is allowed to call him “bean” ; “bean, come here let me fix your hair” , “james stops thats bean’s book!!”
- ginny takes a little too much after remus , and her “anger issues” are very much present from an early age, so remus himself works with her on how to properly calm down and convey her emotions !! he finds that taking her on broom rides helps a lot, so despite not liking flying, he still does for his little girl !!
- charlie only eats grape flavored candies and so peter has a tiny pouch full of grape flavored suckers and candy labeled with “star’s sweets” that he takes everywhere
- peter is also the one you can see most with the bay carrier, as he almost always has ron or ginny strapped to his chest , and he looks like a suburban dad but he’s the absolute greatest with the babies (better then james and remus atleast)
- the marauders have “dad #1 , #2, #3 , and #4” sweaters that they wear at any school event and when lily can’t make it they look like stressed gay parents trying to cope with 8 kids and they never correct the assumptions
