WARNINGS: Yes, there is SLASH! Sirius/Remus! The very best kind! What's more, dear Siri is freed and alive. Have an open mind, won't you? Life would be so much more enjoyable.

Snippets From the Potterverse

Chapter 1 - Sirius' Fan Club, Part 1

Harry Potter and his best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger stepped off the Hogwarts Express, chattering busily and lugging Hedwig, Pigwidgeon, and Crookshanks along with them. It was the beginning of the summer holidays, and they were ready for what looked like an exciting, fun time.

Or another boring holiday scrubbing out 12 Grimmauld Place. Whatever.

Our hero and his two best friends who always get shunted to the side joined the queue to go through the magical barrier. They were in line right behind Parvati Patil and Lavender Brown, who were giggling over some boy.

He's got that bad-boy, rebel look, Parvati was giggling.

Between that earring and that hair... Lavender said dreamily.

And he wears lovely tight jeans all the time. He's got a beautiful arse.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione twitched.

And tight t-shirts, too. With a leather jacket.

Did you see the picture of him in the Prophet ? He was wearing eyeliner !

I know!! But didn't it just look.... sexy?

I'd sleep with him!

Me too!

By now, Harry and Company were becoming very curious to know who this mystery man was. But before they could say anything, the guard ushered Parvati and Lavender through, then the Infamous Trio.

They appeared right behind Lavender and Parvati, who were whispering excitedly and smoothing their hair. There he is, there he is!

There who is? Ron asked rudely.

Both girls looked at him as if he were a slug. Sirius Black, of course!

Harry yelped.

Parvati and Lavender sighed dreamily. Sirius was indeed nearby, leaning against a lightpost and waving to Harry. Beside him was Remus Lupin, his arm through Sirius'.

You do know he's gay, right? Hermione asked the two girls.

That just makes him even sexier.... Parvati sighed.

Hermione studied Sirius and Remus for a moment. You're right.... it DOES!

Harry and Ron just stood there and stared at the three girls, who were now drooling.

I'll never understand women, Harry said, shaking his head.

Me neither, Ron muttered.
