AN: Okay, love for the All-Americans!! This song really fit into the story plot, so I used it. Not only did I update 'Temptation', but I also made THIS!! Another sad Remus/Sirius. Aww.

Something Ends Tonight

September. Remus realizes something.

October. Remus sees some things he didn't before.

November. Remus deals with jealousy.

December. Remus starts to like someone.

January. Remus falls in love with someone.

February. Remus falls even more in love with someone.

March. Remus sees the ugly truth that he will never be able to tell them.

April. Remus decides to tell someone that they love them.

The past months that Remus went through ended in love. They ended in lust. They ended in desire, passion, hope, dreams, and jealousy. Tonight, they will end in something else.

And because of that, everything will end tonight,

Of course Remus is sweating. It was the middle of Spring, and everything had just recovered from rain. The dirt was damp. The grass was damp. And tonight everything will change. Everything will end.

He reached forward and helps Sirius stand up, their fingers touching. This is torture.

"Remus, it's so much fun to lie in the grass. You should try it." Sirius encouraged, and just so he can lie next to him, Remus nodded and sprawled out on the grass. His robes are already soaking.

"Everything's squishy." The werewolf commented a little bitterly, but he won't move to avoid it.

"Yeah, isn't it fun?" Sirius rolled over, and covering Remus with his bulk, laughing before rolling off of him onto the other side. "Especially if you roll."

Sirius rolled back over him, laughing, until he finally met Remus' eyes. Time stops for him. He's still staring at his eyes. Time has definitely stopped.

Two things could happen if Sirius is interested in Remus. He would either a) jump off of him so fast his knuckles accidentally punch his stomach or b) he simply lowers his head and kisses him senseless.

Sirius did neither.

Still smiling and laughing, Sirius slowly slid off of him. "Oops, sorry Moony, I totally just squished you." Remus pretends this didn't happen.

Remus has been pretending a lot lately.

"So," Sirius said cheerfully, sitting up. "Wanna go back to the castle?"

"Sure. Looks like rain anyway." The werewolf answered half-heartedly, thinking. They're alone now. He should say it now.

"By the way, Sirius," Remus squeaks, looking at his knee.

"Yeah?"

"I need to tell you something." Damn, this was hard to explain. He didn't want to do this anymore, he really didn't need to do this anymore.

Your subtleties
They strangle me
I can't explain myself at all.
And all the wants
And all the needs
All I don't want to need at all
.

"Fire away, Moony."

Remus turned quickly, so Sirius almost runs into him. He grabbed his shoulders and looked into his eyes sternly.

"I love you, Sirius."

The walls start breathing
My mind's unweaving
Maybe it's best you leave me alone.
A weight is lifted
On this evening
I give the final blow.

Why, oh why, did he think that Sirius would respond 'I love you too, Remus'? The walls around him starting breathing, his mind was unscrewing as he waited for an answer. The floor around him lurched. Maybe they shouldn't talk anymore – stop being friends, perhaps? That's not as funny as he had intended it to be. He never was a sarcastic type of person. At least he's gotten it out, something's definitely off of his back, but something new is on it now.

Sirius gapes at him, his lips parted disbelievingly, and his eyes clouded with surprise. Remus is still gripping his shoulders. Everything is ridiculously quiet.

When darkness turns to light,
It ends tonight.
It ends tonight.

His breath is coming up his ear and his heart is in his head. Something wrong has happened. But Remus doesn't want to wait for it. But he is anyway. He's waiting to be rejected. Everything ended tonight.

Remus should stop pretending now.

"Sirius?" He asked tentatively, and shakes him slightly

A falling star
Least I fall alone.
I can't explain what you can't explain.
You're finding things that you didn't know
I look at you with such disdain

Remus is falling. At least Sirius isn't falling too. No, wait, if Remus is going to fall then he at least wants Sirius with him. But after what he said and how he reacted, he isn't sure if he does. You can't explain anything away. He's ruined it. If today would have been a week ago, he could say "APRIL FOOL, YOU FOOL!" and then Sirius would widen his eyes and laugh. Don't think about his laugher, Remus thinks, or he'll hurt himself thinking about it. He's looking at Sirius with such despair and hopelessness, desperateness, even, that he's about to cry.

The walls start breathing
My mind's unweaving
Maybe it's best you leave me alone.
A weight is lifted
On this evening
I give the final blow.

Tonight was the night when things ended. Tonight was the night when the world ended. For Remus only, tonight was not the night of better days. Better days are over.

"Sirius, say something." He says softly, in a terrified whisper, and shakes him again a little.

"I don't know." Sirius says back, looking at his face in surprise. His mouth is still open.

"Please," Remus begs pleadingly. His fingers nails dig into Sirius' arm. "What are you thinking?"

"I don't know, Remus," Sirius says. "I can't believe it."

"Do something, Sirius." Remus was afraid. He still hadn't said 'I love you'. He still hadn't kissed him, or hugged him, breathing in his ear. Remus wanted to do it, but he couldn't.

"I – I'm sorry, Moony," He said heavily, breathing out a sigh. Everything ends. "D-D'you not want us to talk anymore or be friends?"

"No," Remus whispers, tears blurring his vision. He doesn't want to wipe them away. He doesn't want to cry in front of Sirius. He looks at the dark lake, rippling in the moonlight. Everything ended tonight. "We still have to be friends."

"I don't know what to say."

"Yeah," Remus says. "Well, I know what we can do."

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.
Just a little insight won't make this right
It's too late to fight
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.

Remus stares into his eyes sternly, and moves forward quickly, bumping their hips together before he wraps his arm on the nape of his neck, kissing Sirius for the first time and for the last time. He's crying while he is.

Sirius moans in surprise and his arms don't know where to go, but before he can decide, Remus moves back and runs.

"Remus." Sirius breaths, his eyes still closed.

Now I'm on my own side
It's better than being on your side
It's my fault when you're blind
It's better that I see it through your eyes
All these thoughts locked inside
Now you're the first to know

Now he was alone. Remus guesses it's better than being Sirius at the moment – since he's the one who will have to deal with the guilt and shame. But it is Remus' fault, he guesses.

Now he's spilled it. His only secret, to the only person that should know, and the first person to know. He's the first person to end his days. Sirius has ended tonight.

"Damn. Damn you, Sirius." Remus murmurs, covering his mouth as two tears fell downwards. He can still taste something on his lips. It tastes like Sirius, and Sirius only.

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.
Just a little insight won't make this right
It's too late to fight
It ends tonight,
It ends

It's not repairable. What he's said will change his life forever. Everything ended tonight. Sirius is irreplaceable. How could he have said that? How could he have told himself such things, playing his mind into a state of lies? How could he have pretended like this?

"Damn me." Remus hisses under his breath.

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.
Just a little insight won't make this right
It's too late to fight
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.

Tonight
Insight
When darkness turns to light,
It ends tonight.

Something ended tonight. Something ended. Something didn't. Remus is still in love. Sirius isn't. Nothing will change it anymore. Remus has changed things. Much differently.

Sirius is falling in love with Remus now. He had kissed him, and now he's about to love him. He never tells him, because Sirius could never deal with the rejection that Remus did. But there's no need to pretend. Remus made himself fall out of love, and now he is.

They've switched positions, a year later, where it's their seventh year and things are not repairable. Something is still ended.
