The plan was as follows.

Step 1: Convince everyone that he and Remus actually have been dating. Possibly for months.
Step 2: Stage a breakup so dramatic that no one would dare bring their "relationship" up to either of them again.

He should leave, he thinks, his heart hammering in his chest as he watches the rise and fall of Iain's breathing. He should do it now, while Iain is asleep - he can leave the spare key on the bedside table and avoid the messiness of a real goodbye. Because Iain wants him to stay, and Sirius can't say no. He'd tried, he really had, but he'd caved so easily that he might as well not have bothered.

Dear Sirius,

You told me to keep you posted on what's happening at Hogwarts, so here goes - I don't know if you've heard, but the Triwizard Tournament's happening this year and on Saturday night I got picked as a fourth champion. I don't know who put my name in the Goblet of Fire, because I didn't. The other Hogwarts champion is Cedric Diggory, from Hufflepuff.

Hope you're OK, and Buckbeak -- Harry

"I don't smoke," says Remus, which is a lie and Sirius knows it, because they've been here so many times over the last few months, and Remus always takes the cigarette when Sirius offers.

(Because he'll take whatever Sirius will give him, even if it's only half a cigarette, or just one night before they go back to pretending nothing's happening.)

He wants to be loved. He also, in a vague sort of way, wouldn't mind loving someone in return. It's all a bit ironic - that he could be so cut off from something he wants to feel, while he feels everything else so hard it hurts.

“Moody and the Longbottoms are tied up but last I heard they were going to get here as soon as they could.” Sirius pulled a face as he spoke.

“Tied up?” Lily repeated, high-pitched and too loud. “They know we’re literally in a pitched battle in a public park, yes?”

The Marauders' first proper battle against Death Eaters goes horribly wrong.

Sanguini, in his time, has seen no shortage of war. All of human history is the history of struggle. Sanguini thought that he had long ago accepted its inescapability. Running from it, he had decided, was pointless.

Sanguini, in his time, has also often been proven wrong.

The customer standing in front of him is, quite possibly, the most beautiful man Remus has ever seen. Like, he looks like a model or something. He has long, black hair, flattened by water, and just the slightest amount of scruff on his face, and…

And a baby strapped to his chest.

Sirius Black was a womanizer.

 

Well, that was one way to put it, anyway. There were others, but they weren't so polite. The point was, Sirius had been with a lot of girls. Peter wasn't really keeping track - really, he wasn't, it wasn't like he was keeping a list or something - but he knew that it was an impressive number. A number that put the rest of the Marauders to shame.
