A/N: Regulus/Remus, for TechNomaNcer28. (You know, it actually feels kind of weird to first write Remus/Sirius and then Remus/Regulus. XD)

Regulus was glancing up from the Slytherin table towards the Gryffindor table, where his brother sat. But it wasn't his brother he was looking at. No, it was one of his brother's best friends. For some reason, Remus Lupin had an undeniable attraction on Regulus.

"Stop staring," he muttered to himself. What if Sirius noticed him looking? Or worse, what if Remus saw him looking? Not for the first time, he wished he could switch places with Sirius. That it would be him sitting on the Gryffindor table next to Remus. That it would be him laughing and having fun with him. That it would be him sharing a dorm with him.

But even the thought alone was treacherous. Regulus didn't want to end up burnt off the tapestry like Sirius, and he knew that if he ever voiced his feelings, that was what definitely would happen. Mother didn't really take kind to 'abnormalities' in the family.

Regulus sighed. His crush on Remus would probably always remain just that: a crush. He knew Remus would never return his feelings. But that wouldn't prevent him from daydreaming everytime he saw him.
