but imagine the delivery room when Harry was born

and Lily’s just radiant and she’s got this adorable sleepy little baby in her arms and James and Sirius are just completely unable to handle the situation and they’re both like sobbing all over each other and Sirius is furiously wiping at his eyes and smearing his eyeliner and James isn’t even trying to hide it and he keeps hugging Sirius and going I have a son or I’m a dad and Peter holds Harry first because Remus is kind of uncomfortable with it and Peter doesn’t really know what to do, he’s just like, yeah, this is a baby, so he’s like, do you want to hold it? and Lily encourages him so he takes the kid and then Harry just kind of coos and looks at him with this intensely curious (although tired) look and Remus is completely smitten with the child in his arms and he touches his tiny little chin and Harry reaches for his hand and wraps his tiny little fingers around his thumb and his bright green eyes just bore into Remus and he can feel himself starting to tear up too because suddenly this child means the world to him

and the four of them just kind of watch in silent understanding and they’re all kind of just thinking that Remus will never be able to have a kid of his own because of his lycanthropy and it occurs to all of them that he’d be such an amazing dad/might really want kids

and then after that he spends so much time with harry. Like Sirius is all about godfather duty but Remus will just spend days at the Potters’ house with Lily while James is at work and he’ll watch cartoons with Harry or read him books or feed him or change his diapers and Harry adores him and Lily just spends so much time being sad about the fact that Remus will never have his own child because he’s basically Harry’s favorite person in the world and his paternal instinct game and ability for nurturing are crazy

and then Remus starts to get really antsy when he realizes he’s going to meet Harry as a grown child with his own personality in PoA and he freaks out and such but it’s been so long and he doesn’t know what to do or how to express to Harry that he’s there and so Harry ends up kind of just overlooking him and Remus keeps hoping he’ll drop by his office for tea or whatever but he never does and he just wants to bond with Harry again because Harry is all that’s left of what he had all those years ago and he’s such an amazing kid but he just doesn’t notice Remus despite how much he loved him when he was a baby

and when Sirius turns up again him and Harry get on right away and Remus feels kind of hurt but doesn’t really say anything to anyone. Sirius immediately fills the role he’s been trying to pick back up for a year and he wants to be that paternal figure so bad but it just never happens. Even after Sirius’ death Harry doesn’t pay much attention to him

but i bet remus lupin took any and all werewolf insults in stride. Like he’d just smile and dig his nails into his palm and nod his head and say nothing and put up with it.

and then imagine remus and sirius have to go on a mission for the order and they meet up with this guy and they have to get information from him and the guy keeps making awful comments about how remus is a half breed or whatever and sirius takes his hand under the table and remus smiles and nods politely when the guy tells him that his kind should be exterminated but he grips sirius’ hand tight enough to draw blood

and by the time they get what they need, it’s so late that they just want to go home so they floo back to their apartment and remus is all stiff and acting odd and sirius just kind of runs a hand over his cheek and asks if he’s okay and then remus is crying and he’s never seen remus cry over werewolf comments but now he is and sirius hugs him so forcefully that remus just ends up crying harder, and sirius tells him that the guy was an ass anyway and remus laughs a little but buries his face into sirius’ shoulder, and sirius is like, you never react like this, what happened, and remus just answers that no one ever asks him if he’s okay
