Move Along

Go ahead as you waste your days with thinking

"Remus, you read too much." Sirius observed from the couch, playing Exploding Snap with James.

"Maybe I do, Padfoot." Remus answered idly from the shadows of the common room, a dusty armchair hiding him.

"You should do something worthwhile."

"You don't thing this is worthwhile?" Remus asked incredulously, flipping the page and raising his eyebrows. "Studying for our Transfiguration N.E.W.T.'s is unproductive?"

"You study too much, Remus."

When you fall everyone stands

"You should have other things to worry about, Moony." James said, as the entire game snapped and exploded.

Remus jumped slightly at the small explosion. "Like what?"

"Like your transformation next week."

"You know, everyone stands when you fall with your fur, Remus." Sirius mocked, blowing the ashes off of the coffee table.

"Very amusing."

Another day and you've had your fill of sinking
With the life held in your
Hands are shaking cold
These hands are meant to hold

"You need someone to help you, Remus. But how are we supposed to hold you up if don't let us?" Sirius asked indolently, and Remus sighed.

"I mean, you can't support your life all by your own hands!" James said defensively, grabbing another game of Exploding Snap out of his bag.

"This conversation is becoming stupid." Remus said tiredly.

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along
Move along

"I'm going to bed," James announced, as the game explodes right away and soot blows in his hair. "It's been a long day. 'Night Padfoot, Moony."

Sirius walked over to Remus and dusted off another leathery chair. Sitting down, Sirius noticed the dark and black lines under Remus' face as he reads.

"You look beaten, Moony. You need to give yourself a break."

Remus looked up with a sigh, and giving Sirius a look of my-hope-is-gone-so-yours-about-me-should-be-too, he returned to his book.

Sirius knocked the book out of his hands.

So a day when you've lost yourself completely
Could be a night when your life ends
Such a heart that will lead you to deceiving
All the pain held in your
Hands are shaking cold
Your hands are mine to hold

"What are you–" Remus began as the book slipped out of his grip and falls open onto the floor.

But Remus is cut off by Sirius clutching at Remus' hand and forcing his lips onto his mouth, feeling the cold of Remus' hand cooling Sirius' warm one.

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along
Go on, go on, go on, go on

"I love you, Moony," Sirius stated as he leaned away slightly, their foreheads touching and their lips still faintly brushing against each other. Sirius closes the gap again shortly. "A lot."

"I–"

"At least let me take care of you."

Remus smiled, touching their lips again.

When everything is wrong, we move along
Go on, go on, go on, go on
When everything is wrong, we move along
Along, along, along

"Does that mean you love me too?" Sirius whispered.

Remus nodded, meeting their eyes. "Yeah, Padfoot, I love you too."

When all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through

Move along, move along just to make it through

Move along; move along just to make it through

"But you're the only one that's going to worry about me." Remus said firmly as Sirius brushed the golden hair away from Remus' forehead.

"I'm fine with that." Sirius said simply.

"I should hope you are."

Go on, go on, go on, go on
Right back what is wrong
We move along

"Do you worry about me?" Sirius inquired curiously, a spark shining in his gray eyes.

"I could if you want me to. But right now I have bigger worries."

"Like what, classes?"

"I think the 'classes' part of my worry-list just shunted down a bit. I'm probably more worried about you and me." Remus whispered quietly.

Sirius shook his head, and to confirm that this was nothing to worry about, he leant in and touched his lips to Remus' again."

We move along
