About Werewolf Among Wizards
So before chapter 8, it had been over four years since I last posted, and for that I am truly sorry. For those last four years, part of me wanted to just say that the story was complete and close that piece of my life, but another part of me felt so guilty about the handful of mostly-completed chapters collecting figurative dust on my hard drive that would never see the light of day, I knew I could not in good conscience leave them there. Not that it made them any easier to finish.
Looking back over my chapters both posted and un-posted, I find myself mostly happy with what I have written, and even those parts that make me less happy, I have decided to leave mostly unchanged. It is all part of a different era of my life, and to go back and edit it would be, I think, disrespectful to my 17/18-year-old self.
So chapter 9 is in the queue. Many thanks to Roxy Black for helping me with length problem. I'm really excited about chapters 10-12, or what I have dubbed "The Willow Parts 1-3". Chapters 10 and 11 are done and just waiting to hop in the queue!
I go back and forth on what chapter pieces to flesh out and include and which ones to leave behind, but right now this fic looks like it could be anywhere from 14 to 17 chapters total.
For everyone still enjoying Harry Potter fan fiction, bless you! And thank you all for reading!
Summary: Remus Lupin reflects on his past as he faces an uncertain future after the death of a close mentor.
Summary: A stormy summer night leads to a steamy liason between two lost souls.
In fifth year, Sirius along with James and Peter managed the difficult Animagus transformation. In fifth year, Sirius played the ‘werewolf prank’ on Snape. One was an act of loyalty, brotherhood, and friendship; the other an act of betrayal, vengeance, and recklessness. This story spanning the Marauders' fifth year will deal with both these incidents, as well as Sirius’s increasing rejection of everything having to do with ‘The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black”.
Summary: Chapter Ninety Six is posted!
This is the story of four boys. This is the story of a boy from a family he wants to escape from. This is the story of a boy who is from a family he loves deeply, but lacks the gift of a best friend. This is the story of a boy who has been living with a curse his entire life, fighting to overcome it. This is the story of a boy who wishes to show people what he can do. This is the story of how these four boys came to know each other, of how they became friends. This is the story of their unbreakable bond, of a bond that could survive any test, any trial. This is a story that will ultimately end in tragedy.

The spoiler warning is for the later chapters!
Giant spiders, malevolent bats, wizard scouts...werewolves. Tonks finds life in Hogsmeade far from simple, while Remus discovers having a partner in touch with her inner wolf complicates his mission and his heart.
Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. Canon-compliant. Nominated for a 2008 QSQ for best Post-Hogwarts story.
The war is over, and all is well, they say, but the wounds remain unhealed. Bitterness divides the Houses of Hogwarts. Can the first children born since the war's end begin a new era, or will the enmities of their parents be their permanent legacy?
Summary: Marty Price works for The Cause, which involves several campaigns and petitions on a weekly basis. It has become common knowledge within Hogwarts that if you see her coming towards you with a clipboard, you should turn and walk the other way. Or perhaps deny all grasp of the English language. And if this isn’t eccentric enough, there’s also her obsessive written observations of four boys in her year, which will one day make a rather interesting book ...
Remus Lupin, meanwhile, has always been a little different, too. Poor, sweet Remus Lupin is, to the casual observer, the picture of a sensible, hard working student. However, he has three friends who have done more for him than anyone knows and they have done this because of his troubled past, troubled present and troubled future. Why the gloominess? Because Remus Lupin just so happens to be a werewolf.
So what could these two possibly have in common? And how can their stories possibly connect?
Runner-up for the 2008 Best Marauder Era QSQ.

Disclaimer: Don’t own ‘em; never did. JKRowling has that lucky distinction…
Summary: "We do not remember days; we remember moments."
What follows is a collection of little memories that make up life: moments, both significant and obscure. A series of vignettes more than anything, that, put together, may paint a picture of the lives of our favorite Marauders. Rating because of language.
Summary: As war rages around them, Remus and Tonks are pulled along with the tide. New, prejudical laws are passed, and the couple must take drastic action in order to stay together. When the climactic battle arrives, Tonks must make an impossible, heartbreaking choice. Follow the couple through the timeframe of Deathly Hallows. DH spoilers abound!
As the outline has expanded, the originally intended three chapters of this story have turned into twelve chapters of R/T goodness. :-)
Chapter 6 has been sumitted!
Summary: Memories. They can destroy us. They can heal us. And sometimes, just sometimes, it takes a memory to ease the pain. See the world from the eyes of a perpetual ousider- and let yourself slip into the deep, soothing balm of memory.
Summary: Eleven-year-old James Potter is fearless, clever, nimble, fearless, and--by his own reckoning--the future hero of the world.
At the moment, he's not much more than an amateur.
Summary: Was it possible to save two lives in the past without altering history? Was it possible to give his parents a future twenty years after they had supposedly died? Teddy Lupin thought so...
Summary: Lily Evans thinks Valentine's Day is bad enough without propositions from mysterious strangers, fuchsia coloured hair ribbons and the irritating smirk on James Potter's face.
But it just gets even worse when she finds out who's been sending her the presents...
This is the Final Exam written for Humour & Writing: Earning Respect by Pondering of Ravenclaw.
Summary: A secret taught to Remus at a young age should have helped him trust Sirius for twelve years.
Summary: The thing I had never before considered about Muggles is that there are, and always have been, so very many of them. It seems ironic that I would have missed such a discernable fact. Had I ever stumbled across it written in a book I would have merely shaken my head at the thought that someone felt the need to write down something so elementary. Even then, however, I would not have considered the implications of what it could mean. The facts never changed though, only my perception of them; that there are thousands, probably hundreds of thousands, for each individual witch or wizard.
Summary: "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."
A wise man had once told Harry Potter this simple phrase. Harry, in turn, passed on this advice to a brooding Teddy, who suffers once again as the Christmas holidays approach. More than he shows, the death of his young parents affect Teddy. They shouldn't have died, it should have been somebody else. Yet, Teddy has been forced to grow up without them, envious of those with loving parents. Victoire can't help but wonder why Teddy is unable accept the amount of love he has around him. Maybe, with a little persuasion and some good advice from a caring godfather, Teddy can finally get over the death of the parents that he never had the chance to know.
Character Death warning for previous deaths. They don't actually occur in the story.
