Part 4 of 17 part series
Summary: After Goblet of Fire, Sirius, Lupin, and Snape all end up living in Lupin’s home for the summer vacation, causing some interesting arguments between Sirius and Snape. The three of them have to work around how to live together civilly while also dealing with the fact that their relationships with each other have changed. All the while, Snape goes back to Voldemort, getting tortured in the process. Their memories turn to Professor Blackmore’s last few weeks before she disappeared.
Opinion: I liked this chapter as well because it shows how relationships can change over time or with the addition of new people. Lupin no longer needed Sirius because of Snape, but Sirius still wanted to be a part of his pack. Over the course of the chapter, Sirius begins to realize how much Snape truly does care for Lupin, especially after he comes back from Voldemort and needs comfort. I enjoyed the discussion that they had about Professor Blackmore as it showed that they all had a common ally who they didn’t completely understand, but respected all the same. For such a short chapter, it had a lot of content.
Pairings: Severus Snape/Remus Lupin
Warnings: Alternative Universe, very smutty chapter
