Is it doing something that you normally wouldn't do?
Is it doing something that you don't want to do but must?
What is Bravery?
Is it having no fear at all?
Is it looking like you have no fears?
What is Bravery?
Is it fighting for your country?
Is it fighting against your country?
What is Bravery?
Is it standing up in Church?
Is it going into a confessional?
Is doing something that must be done
No matter how much it hurts
Is looking around
And admitting to your fears
Is not fighting blindly for you country
But knowing when the fighting must stop
Admitting your sins
In a crowd of believers
Everyone can be strong
Everyone can be scared
Everyone can be brave
Why?Remus Lupin moved into the Weasleys house and sat heavily on the couch. He stared down at his hands, trying to get the image of Sirius death out of his mind. It couldnt have happened. It didnt happen. Remus didnt even look up as Molly walked in and slowly moved over.Why?6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Remus? Molly asked tentatively, How-
Molly please Remus put his head in his hands I know youre just trying to help but please just leave me alone.
Molly moved closer to him anyway, Remus, do you-
I said leave me alone! He snapped, sitting up straight and hitting the back of the couch. Molly flinched and moved closer anyway, laying a gentle hand on his shoulder.
There will be a meeting a few minutes; you dont have to come if you dont want
Ill be there Remus said softly, and only looked at Molly as she started walking off. Remus leaned forward in

First Time - Drabble"Mmmffmmm…" Remus laughed as Sirius nuzzled his neck. There were just some parts of you, he noted, that must exist for another person. Remus had never before gotten any pleasure out of the corner made by his neck and shoulders on his own, it had to be drawn out of him. He laced his fingers through some hair close to Sirius' scalp and gently pulled the boy off of his neck. Sirius cocked his head and looked Remus in the eyes.First Time - Drabble9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Nothing, just wanted to look at you." Sirius smiled at the explanation and leaned forward to kiss Remus on the lips. He locked Remus' bottom lip between his own and pulled on it lightly, enjoying the closeness.
Sirius thought briefly about being caught but realized he didn't care. They were just sitting on Remus' bed, they could be doing anything. He was sure they'd hear James or Peter returning to the dorm before the door actually opened. Besides,

When Sirius descended the staircase he stopped halfway and gripped the handrail a bit tighter than usual. He sighed deeply and closed his eyes, imagining the 'accident' earlier. He shook himself from these thoughts and muttered to himself,
"Ok Sirius, you can do this. There was nothing wrong with the kiss, it was an accident after all. Just act normal."
He took another deep breath, smoothed out his robes and once again proceeded towards the common room. He stopped at almost every step to mutter this to himself, until he realized that he was beginning to hold up other students.
"Hey Black! Can't you talk to yourself in the common room?" Steve Bittigham a Gryffindor 7th year and the house bully yelled a few students behind him as his 'posse' snickered, "Maybe then the girls will see that you're nothing more than a crazy punk with a pretty face."
Sirius turned around and replied with the deepest hint of 'sincerity' in his voice, "Well, maybe you should try it sometim

"Padfoot, get out of the leaves already! You've been in there forever!"
Padfoot barked his protest and once again dove in to the pile of leaves. When he resurfaced, he changed back into human form.
"Come on, Moony. Quit being such a spoilsport. It'd be more fun if you actually joined me," he said.
"I'm not going in there. I just took a shower. Who knows how dirty those leaves are?!"
"Pfft, you're such a girl," Sirius said, and before Remus could retort, he was back in the leaves as Padfoot.
He swished around in the leaves for a few minutes while Remus sat on the ground and watched, laughing occasionally when Padfoot did something really dumb (which is actually more than occasionally).
"Hey, Moony, come help me out," came a muffled voice from within the leaves, as an outstretched arm protruded from the pile.
Remus sighed and got up from the ground. When he reached the leaf pile, he cautiously stepped close enough to the pile so that he could reach Sirius's han

It was pouring rain in London. The streets were bare, but the local community gatherings were full and, albeit, noisy. Nothing in London had changed since the few incidences in 1984, people were still poor and seriously lacking in supplies, this week it was shoelaces that were impossible to find, except for the Inner Party, which was rich and wealthy. The only difference in 2070s London was there seemed to be a lack of Inner Part members, as if they had all been vaporized at the same time. That of course, was not as false as the people believed.
All the buildings were relatively small in London, but one large apartment building in the middle of all the houses of the Inner Party. It was the one building that never seemed to be falling apart, there wasnt even a burnt out light bulb in the place. Thats where everyone in the Outer Party was taught Big Brother lived, that wasnt so far from the truth either.
I must admit a voice from the top level sou

He turned over and propped himself up, his elbow making a large dent in his soft pillow, to look at me. His eyes danced in the moonlight, and were made even more beautiful by the love they reflected.
But...I didn't understand why.
"Hm?" he questioned.
"Sirius, why...why me?" I whispered.
He let out a bark-like laugh. "Is that all you woke me for?"
I flushed, easily embarrassed by my question. Soon he would give me an answer that would make me seem like even more of a fool. But I had to know.
I looked him straight in the eye, trying to ignore his grinning features. "You could have had anyone...even James, if you had wanted him bad enough! So why..."
"Why choose you?" he interrupted, his face hardening in slight annoyance. "Why choose you, the most dangerous creature in the school?"
I flinched at his choice of words, but he was right. I was a monster...I barely even deserved him as a friend.
"First off, I didn't choose you," he continued, "for you can't simply choose to fall in

Sirius Black frowned. "My necklace chain just snapped," he said sadly. It was his favorite necklace and he wore it everywhere. It had once belonged to his uncle, the first good thin that had come out of the Black family, kiss necklace even fit when he was in his dog form.
Remus Lupin put his arms around Sirius, who was very distraught. "Do not be so worried, my love, we can always get a new string for it."
"Money doesn't grow on trees," Sirius said. After school, they had moved in together, and, since Remus couldn't find a job they had to live off Sirius' small income.
"Keep it somewhere safe and when we have enough, we'll get a new string," Remus said.
Sirius kissed Remus. "Okay," he said.
The two men were walking, hand-in-hand, to drop Sirius off at work, when Remus stopped and peered into a store window. "Oh Sirius, look, new robes! What I wouldn't give for some NEW robes!"
Sirius smiled at the child-like expression on Remus' face.
"Maybe someday we'll be
