Harry PotterErnie Ecklestein and the Completely Useless Trip
Dumbledore and Moody send Remus and Sirius off on what appears to be a wild goose chase, which would be fine except it's the morning after their first time together and Sirius would have preferred to spend it in bed. Oh, my heart
. This made me tear up with happiness and also the knowledge that soon everything is going to change and not for the better. Oh, Remus. Oh, Sirius

Remus gets sent away on a mission for the Order over Christmas, leaving Sirius at loose ends. Lovely and full of awesome Sirius and Lily banter.In Defiance of the Winds That Blow
A quiet, wistful moment for Remus and Sirius during Christmas at 12 Grimmauld Place.It Can't All Be Wedding Cake
Sirius proposes to Remus at James and Lily's wedding. What I really like about this story is how it absolutely nails Remus and Sirius's respective attitudes towards their relationship ('I love you, you lanky git.'
'I know, I know,' said Remus, skin burning from the intensity of Sirius' gaze. 'But I'm not like you.'
Sirius studied Remus' face for a long time before he said, 'you're worried, aren't you? You're worried that I'm going to run off with some flighty thing in a few years when I get bored of you and your threadbare cable knit jumpers, is that it?'
Remus shifted uncomfortably. 'Sort of, yeah.'
'Nonsense! You are my flighty thing. I love you. Even though you are completely crackers,' Sirius said affectionately.

by onehundredmoonsRemus spent a lot of time trying not to question just how else things were different now, and if they were different for Sirius as well. Thinking about it too much might lead him to do something that would make Sirius get up and leave the couch for good. A year out of school, he missed being with Sirius all the time. His feelings may have been unrequited, but Remus was happy to go on this way if it meant he could wake up in the morning with the person he had wanted to be with for so long.
Small, perfectly wrought scene full of UST. *happy sigh*Sturdy Hiking Boots (and Other Warm Things)
by peskywhistpaw"As an habitual giver of extraordinary gifts," he began in a lofty tone, "I've attempted to best myself each and every year."
Remus rolled his eyes, though he could feel a smile tugging at one of his scars.
"This year, however, is our final year. And as such, I worried that I would have to break tradition, for what could possibly best the presents of yesteryear? Then I was struck." He paused dramatically. "The best thing I could possibly give to you all is, in fact, the gift of me."
Sirius gives Remus an awesome gift their last Christmas at Hogwarts. Soft and lovely.This lovely land is you and yours
Wonderful look at the Christmases Remus and Sirius spend together (and apart *sniffle*) from Hogwarts through Azkaban and beyond. Oh, my heart.
