Relationship: Sirius Black/Remus Lupin
Notes: Set somewhere between the Marauders’ Hogwarts days and the tragedy at Godric’s Hollow, with Remus and Sirius both a part of the Order of the Phoenix, this drabble tells of the slow but important changes taking place in their relationship as they gravitate towards each other.
Summary: It’s a gradual thing.
You find you grow closer to each other as time passes; each narrow escape, each brush with death, binds one to the other in ways no-one else understands. And after a while, you stop trying to explain.
Always close, you become inseparable; it happens almost without either of you noticing. You’re a couple in every way long before you acknowledge the fact and, from that point, your becoming lovers is a mere matter of time.
