Oh the rising of the sun and the running of the deer reviews
The Marauders act out a cheery favourite carol. (Christmas 1980.) A drabble (yes, it's precisely 100 words if you don't count the interspersed lyrics!) inspired by author by night's prompt of "Christmas Carol: The Holly and the Ivy" at the rt morelove Stocking Filler Exchange, but then the story insisted on being about the Marauders instead.

Ron Weasley Proves Himself Wrong reviews
Written for the Stocking Filler Exchange at rt morelove, for gilpin25's prompt: "Listen, no bloke in his right mind's going to fancy Tonks when Fleur's around."

Forget this Tapestry reviews

Two Sisters Take Tea reviews
The letter lay on the mantelpiece for a week, then two, until Andromeda finally had to admit to herself that there were no two ways about it: She was being rude. She should have the decency at least to write and decline Narcissa's invitation. (This story is now also part 5 La Ronde Noire.)

The Great Guest List reviews
"So then I got to thinking, who else can I invite to my party who would make my mother have a fit? Moony's perfect already, because no one likes werewolves." "Oh, thanks," Remus said with dripping sarcasm. "I mean no one except us, and we're the only ones who matter," Sirius replied impatiently.

Precisely What I Mean reviews
Remus with Teddy was easily the sweetest thing Tonks had ever seen. It seemed Remus couldn't ever hold Teddy without gazing down at his son with a huge, helpless, delighted grin. "Don't your cheeks ever get tired?" Tonks couldn't help teasing him once, and he'd glanced up, bewildered by the question – he didn't even realise he was doing it.

In the Wrong House reviews
It didn't matter if they were unpredictable Blacks or show-off Potters, or even someone harmless like Peter Pettigrew. None of these boys could be his friends, and it was time Remus started remembering it. He didn't mind, Remus told himself. He didn't need friends.

All the Times Things Changed Forever reviews
She wasn't even surprised when the Headmaster with the weird name of the weird school rejected her childish plea to come along too, because Petunia already knew she wasn't special. She didn't make fuses blow and flowers grow three times as fast. She didn't even really want to be able to do those things. But she didn't want to lose Lily. So to keep from being left, she left first.

"Someday we'll come here with your grandchildren, Prongs," Remus said. "You'll tell stories about the old days and they'll be horrified their doddering elders ever did young people things."

Unexpected reviews
"Charlie!" Nymphadora Tonks was standing in the doorway. Grinning ear to ear, she swept in and grabbed him up in a hug. Charlie, his thoughts lagging somewhere behind him, stood up and wrapped his arms around his old school friend. Tonks stepped back and smiled at him. Charlie stepped back and looked at her. Whatever he'd been expecting, it wasn't this.
