VV, thanks for everything! You are the most spectacular Beta a girl could ask for
Speaking of who, everyone should be reading everything by Vindictus Viridian. There is an spectacular fic by her called 'In the Eyes of Others' that is an in-depth very canon-like history of Severus Snape. It will make you laugh, cry, wince in pain and hate Lucius Malfoy more than you ever have or, if you go that way, love him even more. It's really quite a brilliant Opus that she's got going on. And if you're the kind of person who reads things because other authors you like recommend them (and I assume you're reading my profile because you like something I've written), then you should run to go read it. Now!
For those looking for author's recs, I'd personally check out the following one-shots first:
With You in Your Dreams
Return to Grimmauld Place
Mastering the Maze
Seasons of love
The Phoenix Speaks
The End of the World
In which Remus must accustom himself to Sirius's constant coming and goings.
Many thanks to Vindictus Viridian for the repeated beta-ing on this!

Summary: Per Sirius: Until of course the first full moon after that in which the lot of us woke up at the crack of dawn sort of sprawled in our usual spots around the Shack, except for me and Remus, who had in fact ended up in a sort of tangle. I didn't kiss him until the wolf was entirely gone, you understand, but I don't think anyone had ever been that close when he came out of a moon and was back in his right mind and yeah. Bloody hell. Toes. Curled. James threw a shoe at my head and threatened the hose. Bah. He was just jealous.
They are the four who will change the world and their names proclaim their uniqueness: Godric. Helga. Rowena. Salazar. They are each the smartest and brightest of their tribes; each in complete possession of the skills that set one house from the other. Godric is the bold and brave Gryffindor; Helga, the natural healer and helper from Hufflepuff; Rowena of Ravenclaw, the keeper of all that is known and the seeker of things still to be discovered; and Salazar, the sly and seductive Slytherin.
How the four became friends is a mystery within itself. The four families of Greater Britain, though it was not called Britain then, came from the very four corners: Ravenclaw in the North, Hufflepuff in the South, Gryffindor in the West and Slytherin in the East. But somehow, against all odds, they did meet. A friendship grew steadily, year after year.
And the course of the world was changed.
Summary: There comes a time, in each person's life, when they must take a stand for what they believe in. When they must stop, consider, everything that they have done to bring them to where they are in their lives. For Draco Malfoy, this was one of those times.
Summary: Title says it all, I think
Summary: For everything there is a time. A time for love and a time for hate. A time for peace and a time for war. For everything under the heavens, there is a time.
Summary: In which Sirius is bored, Severus is snarky and various bodily appendages are alluded to.
Summary: Per Sirius: "The first one. I sound like a big, sodding girl, it's true, but the day our Remus decided he'd be bold about being a great poof and knocked me on my arse in the most un-smooth move you've ever seen (really, you'd think he'd have learned from me and James) and proceeded to snog me stupid was probably the finest moment of my young life at that point in time. Hottest, too."
Summary: The pressures of war can either bring lovers closer together through trust or force them apart through fear and suspicion. When it looks like it's starting to become the former, Remus takes matters into his own hands.
Summary: With just hours left before he's to leave Hogwarts forever, James reflects on the past, the present and the future.
