31 October 1981. Instead of going to Azkaban, Sirius Black goes on the run, determined to catch the traitorous Peter Pettigrew even as post-war violence tears through the wizarding world. Meanwhile, Remus Lupin and a handful of others work desparately to clear Sirius' name, and to find him.
After all, they are not the only ones seeking Sirius Black. The Ministry of Magic has set the Dementors on his trail, and they have been given permission to administer the Kiss the instant he is caught. The remnants of the Death Eaters are pursuing him as well, in hopes that he will lead them to Pettigrew, whom they blame for Voldemort's defeat. (SB/RL slash)

Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.
Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, are proud to present a Symphony for Quartet.
Summary: This is my take on what might happen in book seven. My take comes with a twist. Harry gets help from an unlikely mentor. She is both a Slytherin and a Malfoy! I have extended this chapter in order to develop her character as requested by the Mods. I wanted to share my thoughts on what might have happened to Lily's parents. Why were they dead? I needed to edit the warnings because chapters nine and ten are about the war and a major character dies. I'm sorry if I have caused any confusion.

Summary: Sequel to A Stolen Past. Please read that story first, as this one really won’t make sense if you don’t.

Will he be able to pass his classes without it? And most importantly, will he ever be able to defeat Lord Voldemort?

This is a story of friendship and mystery, with a healthy dose of H/G thrown in for good measure.
Remus Lupin has always been different, ever since he was bitten by a werewolf and forced to live his life with the curse. He had no friends and never expected to have any until he started Hogwarts. But even once he entered school his wish didn't come true, until his third year. Remus would soon learn that with every good comes something equally bad.
Excerpt from Chapter Nineteen:
“What do you want, Lupin?” he asked exasperatedly.
“You hate me, don’t you?” Remus said in a friendly manner, as though he and Snape had been best friends since infancy.
“Gee, what tipped you off?” Snape retorted sarcastically.
“Then you would love to see me get hurt, wouldn’t you?”
“Well yes, I would enjoy that.”
“Especially if it was of my own doing?”
“That would make it even more amusing.”
“Then would you do me the favor of telling Larry Wilkins that I’d like to meet him out by the greenhouses at ten o’ clock tonight?”
