Since the Gift Exchange is over? On hold? I believe we've gotten permission to post our fics, so here we go!A Marauder Holiday
for Pogonotrophy (Yay Christine!)
A couple of notes: Considering that I wrote this in about four days, I'm pretty happy with this piece. Perhaps it's a little cliché (I can envision this oneshot far too perfectly within my mind for it to be completely original), but I like to think of it as my
interpretation of these old clichés. Well, there was a prompt, you see.
The Prompt: Platitudes.
What was I going to do with that? When I looked it up, I found that platitude had all these lovely synonyms: trite, vapid, overdone, and clichéd.
So, there you have it. This is why my fic is the way it is. And I'd never truly written a "classic" Marauder fic, so I thought it would be interesting.
Another note - some people commented on a possible Remus-y crush on Lily, but I actually still had my mind stuck in dogdaysofsummer
mode, so I was actually thinking the beginnings of Remus/Sirius. Remus' views of Lily were, for me, influenced by Remus' deep friendship with Lily. And also Remus' keen observational skills. Additionally, Remus, as a single and lonely bloke, is mildly jealous of any happy couple. Hurrah.
Also, I'm so happy that my gift was for Pogonotrophy/Christine. Because Christine is totally awesomesauce.
