Summary: Gabrielle LeCorte grew up living next door to the Potters and they were like her family. When they started school she was given the task to 'keep an eye' on James Potter and try to keep him out of trouble. This was easier said than done, especially once he met Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. She became best friends with Sirius Black and was lucky enough to hang around with the infamous Marauders, even if she was more like a babysitter. Would she be destined to clean up after them her whole Hogwarts career or would she break away and become something separate from just the 'Marauder’s girl'?
Sirius Black stumbles onto a most curious scene while checking up on one of his closest friends, the wife of his best mate. Lost and confused he follows the signs until they reach into a depth unknown to him. From this point, he seeks the help of another dear friend, and together they think, suffer, and laugh their way to some answers and some dead ends. Only in the end, do they find the answer to the one question that burns in their minds: how will we go on?

Summary: Albus Dumbledore sighed. It wasn’t just any old sigh, either. It was a heavy sigh. A sigh sighed by people who had worked a twelve hour shift at a manual labor industry and come home to put their feet up and have a nice, steaming cup of tea. It was that kind of sigh.

The song featured in this story is Hot Legs by Rod Stewart which was a huge hit in the early part of 1978 and seemed to lend itself very well to Sirius Black!
Disclaimer Sirius and Remus are not mine *sigh* but belong to JK Rowling as do James,Lily and Peter. The Harley-Queens however are my rather fluffy invention.
