Day 18: If you could change one thing about canon, what would it be?


And honestly, that’s all. I mean, yes, Sirius’s death was totally traumatic, but I understand why it had to happen narratively, and I actually really like that all the Marauders died, and I like that Snape died. I think for those four characters – Sirius, Remus, Peter, and Snape – there was no going back, there was no being happy (yes, even Remus with his wife and kid). Too much had happened, and there was too much bitterness and too many regrets. I think they had to die to find peace. So I’m glad they did. (Okay, I guess I would also have Harry mourn Sirius better, but that’s kind of more a stylistic choice than anything, so I can let it slide. It still pisses me off, but fine.)

But Fred’s death was just so unnecessary! I don’t feel like it really added anything to the story, it was just like, “I guess there are a lot of Weasleys and one of them should probably die.” Then kill Charlie or Percy or something! Don’t kill a twin! You either have to kill both twins or no twin, but killing only one is just plain cruel. George being alone is so awful! So yeah, I would definitely change that, but that’s pretty much my only canon complaint.

title: Heroes for Ghosts
fandom: Harry Potter
character(s): Remus Lupin
rating: PG
words: ~2400
summary: He tells himself he’s healing because it sounds healthy and well-adjusted and like him, and James has stopped showing up to contradict him.

Hardening, he thinks, is something Sirius would have done.

notes: This is a bit of a different style for me. It’s also a bit weird. The title comes from the Pink Floyd song Wish You Were Here.

Two days after Halloween, Remus comes home from the safe house where he's been transforming for the past year... )
