FIC: Once in a Blue Moon - Prologue
Title: Once in a Blue Moon
Rating:  Will rate the various chapters individually, highest rated will be R. For information on the more adult version of this story please see this thread.
Pairings: Remus Lupin & Sirius Black (plus a few others: JPLE and various OC combinations)
Genre: Friendship, romance, angst, drama (a bit of everything really)
Length: 397,644 words - 75 chapters (plus prologue & epilogue). 
Disclaimer: I own nothing that you recognise.  J K Rowling retains all copyright.
(But Romulus is mine ;-)

Summary:  An AU Remus/Sirius story set in a world where an eleven year old werewolf named Remus Lupin never got his Hogwarts invitation, and where Sirius Black was not accepted by the rest of the Gryffindors. The two outcasts form a friendship despite overwhelming odds, but will their friendship survive when Sirius finds himself falling in love with his best friend...his friend who wants nothing more than to be 'normal', despite the passion he feels for the heir to the Noble House of Black.

Beta: lostandawaiting (who has been betaing the story from chapter 11 onwards - everything prior to that is unchecked, so all mistakes are mine.)

Warnings
: Slash (later on in the story), character deaths, violence, non-graphic sex and strong language. There will also be mention made of the idea of a male pregnancy, though not an actual one. 

If you don't like any of the above then don't read it.

HAPPY ENDING GUARANTEED!

Notes:  All chapter titles are lines or titles of songs.  For the really curious - the name of each song is included in the "Music" entry of each chapter.  And, although it should be obvious, I will repeat it here for those who are unsure - all characters engaging in sexual intercourse are over the age of consent.  Which, as will be apparent by chapter one, means that you are in for a long wait before they get any action ;-)



Runner-up for Best WIP & Best AU.

Prologue

“You’re not taking him,” the wizard ordered, his wand raised towards his eldest son, who could see that he had every intention of using it.

“You’re condemning him to death,” the younger man replied with equal venom.

“He’s not our son any more,” the witch sobbed.  “It’s for the best.”

“He’s six years old,” the young man yelled.  “I won’t let you do this!”

“The Ministry officials are on their way.  It’s too late.” 

“He’s your son!”

“Not any more.  Now, he’s a monster.”  

“For one night of the month; the rest of the time he’ll be a scared little boy.”  Romulus Lupin pushed his parents aside and ran up the stairs to his younger brother’s room.

“Remus?” he called as he pushed open the door. 

“Rom?” a small voice called out from beneath the bed and Romulus cursed his parents for the fear he heard in his younger brother’s voice. 

“I’m here, Remus,” he said softly.  He held out his arms and his younger brother threw himself into them.  The boy was thinner than he remembered and there was blood on his robes.  That Romulus didn’t know whether they were injuries from his brother’s first transformation or inflicted by his parents only made him that much more furious.

“I’m scared, Rom,” Remus whimpered.

“It’s all right now,” Romulus assured him.  “I’m here now.  You’re going to come and live with me.”

“Mum and Dad, too?”

“No Remus, just us two.”  Romulus swore silently to himself as he felt Remus relax at the news that he was being taken away from his parents’ care. 

“You’re not taking him.”  Romulus turned to face his father who was now blocking the doorway, his wand raised ready to fight.  “You’re still underage.”

“And that he’ll be better off with me, an underage wizard, than his own parents is hardly something to brag about!”

“You’ll be hunted down all your life if you take him now.”

“I’m not going to let you turn my brother over to the monsters that work for the Ministry.  And if that means I spend my life on the run, then so be it.”

“He’s the monster!” the elder Lupin snapped before spitting on his younger son.

Romulus pulled out his wand and sent a disarming spell at his father.  He vaguely noted the sound of Remus crying, but he didn’t have time to comfort him.  He pulled the young boy into his arms and ran for the door.  There was no time to pack and no time for explanations.  They were on their own. 

-o-xXx-o-

“Is that our new home?” Remus asked as he and Romulus walked the short distance from the village of Hogsmeade to the rundown and dilapidated house that stood on the hillside. 

“It’s not much to look at,” Romulus admitted. 

“They won’t find us, will they?” Remus asked quietly.

“Not while I’ve breath in my body,” Romulus promised.  Remus nodded seriously in response and they continued on their way. 

With little money and no chance of a legitimate, well paid job, Romulus knew that this shack of a house was the best they could hope for.  He prayed that they could remain hidden from the Ministry of Magic officials who were even now searching for both himself and the young werewolf who was in his care.  Realistically he knew it was only a matter of time before the long arm of the law caught up with them.

Hi there!

Glad you liked the start of the story, and Romulus (who is probably the favourite of my OCs). I hope you continue to enjoy the story.

If you get to the end of what is posted here at LJ feel free to pop over to my fanfiction.net page because there are more chapters posted there than here. I am playing catch up at LJ since I started posting here much later.

Thanks for commenting.

Seeing as how it is mid-month, no sneak peek for two more weeks and god only knows how LONG until I get another new chapter, I thought I'd look at the beginning again to see if I could help you to pinpoint why this one is the most popular.

I do remember reading the summary for this quite a few times at ff.net before clicking on it. I think the problem was that at the time, I was sceptical because
A) I believed that I didn't like AU's.
B) The overall quality on ff.net made me especially cautious about reading them there.

But I did like the title and summary so eventually, I gave in and clicked. After that, the rest is history. The opening has so much action and intrigue that I was sucked right in! Although, I still don't think it fair that Romulus Lupin is yours considering what you've done with him .......... Maybe when this story is finished, you can give him a choice of destinies with his many, many fans. I'm sure I could think of something better to do with him!
fullmoon_dreams From: fullmoon_dreams Date: October 13th, 2008 07:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think a lot of people avoid AUs, and have been guilty of that myself on occasion. I am glad you gave in on this one though.

I promise as soon as my beta gets the piece she has back to me I will send her the next chapter. I am still writing ahead of her and so after the next one is posted it should be back to a fortnightly turnaround - and hopefully I will have caught up here at LJ by the time of the next sneak peek.

As for Romulus - He is mine, to do with as I will. *evil laugh here*

Ah, the irony. Every chapter title of this fic is a line from or a title of a song - but the styx lyrics is totally not down to me. I am not even sure which lines you are referring to. LOL

I hope you are enjoying the story and thanks for commenting.

Thanks for the explanation. Totally unintentional. The long arm of the law is a pretty common phrase around here, and I had no idea they were lyrics as well. At least it is in keeping with the rest of the musical references in the chapter titles.

Review for "Once In A Blue Moon" - Part 1

I... I don't know where to start.

I'll be honest and admit that I've avoided this fic for a while, even if I've seen it rec'ed. There were two reason for that: one, it says "angst" and "character death" in the warnings, which is a combination I try to avoid at all costs, and two, Remus has a brother named Romolus. But a few days ago, I had nothing better to do so I sat down and read this, because I was in the mood for something long and AU and I hadn't read this already. I figured, hell, if I don't like it, I can always click the 'back' button.

But oh boy, did I not do it. The prologue's rather action-filled and I was still a bit apprehensive, but then I started reading chapter one and I was immediatly hooked. This... I don't know what to say. This is brilliant, but I can't put my finger on it.

Style and structure-wise, Once In A Blue Moon isn't epoch-making. I don't mean this as insult! This fic doesn't need to be written with flowery language or original (and confusing) structure. It's nice and easy to read, flows naturally, and works perfect for a fic of this incredible lenght. I'd like to say that it's the same with the plot; it isn't pioneering, but very good and feels fresh.

So, when I've dismantled and examined these parts, I've come to the conclusion that I should really like this fic for since it's solid, interesting and well-written. But I don't just 'really like' Once In A Blue Moon; I love it with a passion that competes with the one I feel for Dating Remus Lupin, which I didn't even think was possible. So why, why, do I love this fic so much?

I think the answer lies in the details.

Like I've said, everything about this fic is solid; there's not much to complain about. But as I travel through this really nicely kept garden, feeling a little envious but comforting myself with the petty thought that I at least try to push bounderies on occassion and thus is arty-farty and ~*~speshul~*~, I stumbled upon a rare flower that is so breathtakingly beautiful that I can't do anything but stare. It might be Remus' mischieviousness and non-stodginess, or Sirius' bad self-esteem, or the abscence of golden eyes, or the frighteningly accurate and real interaction between two boys. Things I've heard of, whispered in hushed vioces, things I dreamt of but thought was an unreachable utopia, and here is a garden full of them! Your characterisation of Remus is so much like mine that it almost frightens me, as is your Sirius, and all the other characters make so much sense andn ot even secondary characters that only pop in for about a minute feel flat and two-dimensional. When I read fanfiction, I sometimes have stop and wince when I see an action or line or characterisation or whatever that I don't like and then get back to reading; here I have to stop because I have to pick up my jaw from the floor and keep myself from squeeing. You avoid all the usual pitfalls -- both with R/S and with AUs -- with an ease like you've never known anything else, and you add your own spice and flavour.

Review for "Once In A Blue Moon" - Part 2

Ah, I feel that I start to be a bit rambly. Let's see, I can try to organize my thoughts with a list, yes?

  • How smoothly everything blends together. Every transition feels natural and the plot is surprising but never sudden or out of the blue. The pacing is lovely, nothing feels rushed and neither boring or protracted. Just really, really good writing.

  • You have clearly marked POV changes and you keep yourself to one POV at a time. I don't know if I should cry when I list this as one of the many amazing things with this fic, but all too often I find good fics that have a bit too liberal concept of "POV switch."

  • You don't Americanize the fic. ♥ There are a few American expression here and there, and "ass" appeared once but I think that was a mistake, but otherwise it's British English and English expressions. Thank you so much for that; nothing makes my eyes hurt more than seeing AE in a Harry Potter fic, and then the word "ass" in particular.

  • Remus. Just-- Remus. I know this is an AU story, but it's an AU because of an event and not because they're Muggles or something like that, so their personalities are the same. And this Remus here is marvellous. I've always seen canon!Remus as an incredibly strong character; not necissarily because he sticks to his principles to a point of foolhardiness or his loyalty completely disregards the dangerous risk of his life -- that would be Sirius, mind you -- but because he's been able to take everything life has thrown at him and still not become bitter or thrown in the towel. That shows some immense mental strength that I don't think any other character in the HP 'verse can compete with. (Well, maybe Dumbledore, but who knows what goes on in his head.) I've always despised wallflower!Remus that so often is portrayed in MWPP-fics because I feel it contradicts Remus character. But here is is simply wonderful! And I'll get to his reaction to Sirius' being in love with him later, and at great lenght, but do know that I find it incredible as well! And Remus likes affection and touch. Just, thank you. If I read one more fic where Remus dislike touch (and it isn't a key element to the plot) I'll gouge my eyes out with a pencil.

  • Like I just mentioned, Once In A Blue Moon is an AU story because of an event, and not because it's an alternate reality. It's an event that is not connected to the other Marauders and it's very logical (even if it contradicts my own personal canon, where Mr. and Mrs. Lupin is extremely loving parents and the Mr. is a Muggle, but hey, this is AU!) which is a refreshing change. And Remus and Sirius' first "meeting" is deliciously random. No great plan made by Fate, no star-crossed lovers, no nothing. Just mere chance; the boys in Hogsmeade could just as easily hit the bird and Remus would've found another's letter. (Which would make a very interesting ficlet/drabble indeed. Do I dare ask beg and/or bribe you to write something short (like, about 200 words, if even that?) where that scenario did happen? Like, an AU of this AU. I'd love to see if Sirius and Remus still met, and, in that case, how they would react. What would Sirius grow into, if he hadn't had Remus' friendship to help him during his first year at Hogwarts? Would he have been sorted into Gryffindor at all? Would Remus still become obsessed with being 'normal', or would he be more relaxed? Oh, so many questions! ♥)

  • Sirius. Your Sirius here is exactly how I've always imagined him: insecure, craving for love, confused and not a Gryffinwhore. And you even made him not brilliant at every subject! And he doesn't play Quidditch. Ma'am, Milady, Your Highness; may I please have your allowence to squee and love your Sirius to death? I'd ask to adopt him and have his babies, but I'm afraid that would be too forward. Er, so, yes, obviously I adore your Sirius, he is such a little darling, but he still isn't pure as snow, which leads me to...

Review for "Once In A Blue Moon" - Part 3

  • ... my next point: Remus' reaction to Sirius declaration of love. I've seen in the comments and many readers want to wring Remus' neck (and Sirius' too, on occasion) for their stubborness and fussing, but I can't agree with them. I mean, yes, we know that they will end up together and live happily ever after, but that's the point -- we know. The characters don't, they don't know what will happen and how things are going to play out, and are thus unsure and awkward. Personally, as much as I just want to shove them together and tell them to kiss and make up already, I must admit that I absolutely adore this take on their relationship. While fluffy fics where they fall in love right at the same time are lovely, this feels more realistic. It's naked, unpleasant and not a little heart-breaking, but it feels real. My heart ache for both of them. I understand Remus' dilemma; he has never been given the chance to be 'normal' and accepted, but now he has, along with a dozen other things, so of course he doesn't want to let go. It's the '70s as well, so it's not like we have people yelling "IT'S ALRIGHT TO BE GAY! BE OUT AND PROUD! ♥" from every corner either. Romolus is supportive, but hey, it's the loyal to death (literally...) and incredibly caring older brother we're talking about. If he bend over backwards for Remus when lycanthropy gets into the picture, I can't very well see him drop things and run just because Remus happens to fancy boys instead of girls. So yes, I understand why he's so torn, even if I think he should just dump Charlie already and run away with Sirius into the sunset. (I want to give you brownie points for Charlie as well; I'm a total OTPer and hate Remus/girl almost as much as I hate Remus/SS, but I can't bring myself to hate her. You've created a good character there.) However, I want to point out that while Remus is thick and silly, Sirius isn't a knight in shining armour either. Had he been really selfless, he would've given up and let Remus be with Charlie and not keep pushing him. That streak of selfishness, that glimpse of really quite ugly reality, is what makes me love your Sirius even more. They're both messed up here; it's not just one-sided. You paint the pictures of these characters with warm and loving colours but you don't shy away from using the nitty-gritty ones either. Which makes Once In A Blue Moon, and you, amazing.

  • Romolus. I... well, Romolus. An OC that is real and flawed and just delightful. I think he's the best one I've even seen. Congratulations. ♥

I... think that was all the squeeing I had to offer. Yeah, I think that was all. (Gods, how much have I written already? +1,000 words? This got to be some kind of record in reviewing...) But there's something more I want to say... Ah, yes! Con-crit, if it even can be called that.

Well, the first thing I want to note doesn't even qualify as con-crit; it's mostly just an observation. Do mind that I read all of the chapters in three days, so I might have read it too quickly for my own good. Anyhow. Once In A Blue Moon feels almost like it has two parts, at least to me it does. The first part is the first twenty chapters or so, when it's very plot-oriented and everything is sunny and warm and fluffy and ajfggjbfjhgjhn-inducing. Relationships are easy; the threat is The Others, The Outside. Remus and Sirius' love is platonic and uncomplicated, though it is not weak at all. It's them against the world I can't even count how many times I squee'ed out loud during one of their many scenes together. Then Remus is allowed into Hogwarts and things slowly change. As the Other World isn't as threatening anymore, Remus and Sirius themselves get more complicated and their battles shrink till they're just between the two of them. Relationships and feelings get more complicated, things aren't as easy anymore, the Threat isn't as clear as when they were younger. It fits so perfectly with how they grow up from children to teenagers; the small things start to matter more, perspectives change, nothing is as obvious as when you were young. It's different, but it's a good different.

Review for "Once In A Blue Moon" - Part 4

The only real thing I can complain about is the hate crime against Sirius. Now, I should mention that I hate fics where people get beaten up and the plot-device "One half of the pairing get beaten up by homophobes, oh noes! D:" feels so old and stupid to me that I want to kick something every time I see it. However, it happened quite recently, so I still have hope that it will be brought up again soon. Being violated like that leaves traces, both physical and psychological, and I champ foam every time I see people walk away from that without even a second glance. But that's really the only thing I can whine about, I think. And like I said, I might just be wasting my breath, since I don't know what'll happen in later chapters.

Alright. That's done, so there's only one thing left. Now, what was it... Ah, yes! I know this isn't much, and they're no masterpieces by a long shot, but I wanted to show them to you anyway; I think that I'll be able to draw some real illustrations when I have more time. ♥ I drew these sketches (1, 2, 3) when I took pauses while reading, so, like I said, no masterpieces. If there's something in particular you want me to draw and/or illustrate, do tell me! And I wouldn't say no to some more physical description of Romolus either~. ♥
(Gods, here I am, just assuming that you'd accept and even like me drawing fanart. If you don't, just tell me and I won't. Or at least, I won't post them.)

I will now step down from my soap-box and stop acting like I know anything. Play-acting critic time is over now, Anna, it's time to go home~.

(Also, I apologise for friending you without notice and before I could post this review. Even if I know it'll screw up the protocol, may I ask you if I'l allowed to friend you? ♥)

(Ah, yes, and this really is the last thing. I don't know if anyone else has asked, but how does this AU end? I'm a spoiler-whore, but I understand that you might not want to reveal anything just yet, but could you give me a hint? Just, if it ends happily or not, if Remus and/or Sirius are dead before this fic is over or something like that. I still have my fingers crossed that Azkaban won't happen, since none of them are Animagi.)

Re: Review for "Once In A Blue Moon" - Part 4

First of all - wow! That is some long reviewing you have done there. It makes me feel rather ashamed of the shortness of some of my own.

Secondly - Happy ending guaranteed for this fic. There is a notice over at ff.net saying so, but I guess I forgot to put it up here. Sorry. Character deaths are all secondary characters, I promise.

I should apologise for Romulus's name. I am pretty rubbish at thinking up names for regular people. The centaurs names are actually the easiest because I use a celtic reference site, but regular people are named only if I have to. I knew when I decided on Romulus that it had been done before, but I was lazy at the time and had no idea that the story was going to be this long. I'm glad you like him anyway though. Of all my own OCs he is very much my favourite, despite what I put the poor bloke through.

Dating Remus Lupin is possibly my own favourite WIP at the moment and I am honoured that you would put this anywhere near on par with that one.

Remus having golden eyes is one of my own pet peeves, so you would never find that in one of my fics. Only the wolf has gold eyes; Remus's are a nice and normal brown.

I'm glad the POV switches aren't a problem. I, too, have seen fics (even published books) where the switching is so frequent it is distracting. On one occasion a published author who had been highly recommended to me did it so much I never finished the book.

Americanisms - Well, I am English, so there shouldn't be too many because of that. The occasional ones that creep in are ones that I have probably picked up from US TV shows. Ass is one that until a few months ago I never knew was American English since I have used the phrase "pain in the ass" for years without thinking it was anything but British. When I find out something is American I try not to use it again in future fics, but it is still a case of learning what is American and what is British... very surreal for someone English!

I'm glad you like my version of Remus, though since you say it is close to your own then I guess it isn't that surprising. I also dislike Wallflower!Remus and agree that that contradicts what we know about him from canon.

In my first Remus story I also gave him loving parents, but I chose to make his mother the muggle and not the father.

Another bird being hit with a stone... hmm, that is an interesting idea for a ficlet. I will have a think about it and see what I can come up with.

Re: Review for "Once In A Blue Moon" - Part 4

Sirius and Quidditch is one of those fandom things that I just don't know where it even came from. At least with chocoholic Remus there is the excuse that in canon he had chocolate. Sirius on the Quidditch team just stumps me completely. It came from nowhere and seems to be in every single fic these days. I just don't see him as a Quidditch player, at least not in this fic. Remus on the other hand... Well, I couldn't resist.

THANK YOU for seeing that Sirius is, in his way, just as much to blame for the current mess as Remus. I have lost count of the number of people I have pointed this out to and only a small handful have actually seen it for themselves.

Your observation of the story being in two parts is actually quite accurate. I see it in three parts myself, and we are currently part way through the second. It wasn't intentional, but it certainly seems like that to me when I am looking back at it.

Regarding what happened to Sirius - This will be mentioned again in a couple of chapters time when Sirius talks to Regulus about it. You will get to see a bit more of his perspective and how he dealt with it in that conversation.

I am not going to have Sirius dwell on it too much though, because I think it would be out of character for him to get bitter and vengeful over it. I think if he went down that route he would turn into something like Snape, which would not ring true for his character in this fic.

There will be some lasting repercussions, for instance, when they finally get together, Sirius will not be as openly affectionate with Remus in public than he might have been, especially considering how they were earlier on in the story.

Remus will also be considering what happened when he - finally - gets round to deciding what he wants.

There will also be Walburga's reaction when she finds out, as well as Sirius being approached by another guy who knows he was outed and is still in the closet - which leads to other stuff.

So, it will certainly be coming up again, though I suspect that I won't be focusing on the repercussions as much as people would like, so warn you in advance that that is probably going to be the case. Sorry.

Re: Review for "Once In A Blue Moon" - Part 4

Your sketches are wonderful and saved to my hard drive. I am going to do a post about them shortly to squee to everyone on my f-list (I hope you don't mind). I love it when someone takes the time to draw something from one of my fics and these are just marvellous. I love the first one especially - it is so much like I pictured Remus at that age it is scary.

Requests for what to draw... ooooh don't tempt me with an offer like that, I may keep you busy for months. If I had to pick just one scene, I would say the very final scene of chapter 15 (Summer is Over), where Sirius and Remus are in the forest and Remus falls asleep using Sirius as a pillow. I would draw it myself if I could, but I have no artistic talent at all. But really, just draw whatever scene takes your fancy - I am sure I will love them.

Physical description of Romulus - hmmm.... let me see. Mid-twenties, brown hair, sometimes tied back. Looks like an older version of Remus, though I see him with slightly darker hair. Eyes, brown like Remus. Quite thin, a little slimmer than is probably healthy. There needed to be a close enough resemblance to Remus for James and Peter to realise that they were brothers before they all became friends. That enough?

I don't mind that you friended me. I have a note up somewhere that anyone friend me if they want. This journal is mainly used only for fanfics anyway so it is easier for people to keep up with updates if they friend me.

Regarding the ending - as I said above, it has a guaranteed happy ending (since it is already written in full). It actually ends with a wedding, and you can't get much happier than that!

Sirius will not be sent to Azkaban and both he and Remus will certainly be alive at the end of the story.

Voldemort will not even be mentioned - were it not for Myrtle being in the story, you would probably not know he was in this universe. He won't be playing a part in the story.

No Animagi either - actually I tell a lie - there is one in the story - though I will leave it up to you to guess/speculate which one from canon it is.

The story ends in roughly two years time. That is two years in the story, not two years to post it.

Thank you again for all your kind comments about the story. I hope that you will enjoy the rest of it as much as the story so far. I am very glad you decided to take a chance on the story.

Hi there, I'm sure this is a longshot but you haven't got this whole (awesome) story in one file anywhere have you? Like AO3 or something?
fullmoon_dreams From: fullmoon_dreams Date: January 25th, 2012 07:22 am (UTC) (Link)
Sorry, I don't even know what AO3 is.

I have considered putting it into a PDF file but I am not sure how and have not had time to look into it.
rasah From: rasah Date: January 25th, 2012 07:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Ah well, nevermind. I only ask because reading on my phone gets a bit bad for my eyes so I was gonna stick it on my kindle :o)
AO3 is a fanfic site where you can chose to read in chapters or all in one go (which makes copying into a word doc a lot easier).
I've started rereading this today, I forgot how much I love Romulus! I'm going to be very annoyed when I have to stop reading to get ready for work soon!
fullmoon_dreams From: fullmoon_dreams Date: January 25th, 2012 07:28 am (UTC) (Link)
I have a Kindle myself and have been able to transfer doc files onto it without any trouble (though I have only done it for reading lists of series and nothing this big). I can send you the original Word doc if you like.

It is on its way to you now. I will, at some point be sorting out PDF files for this and other chaptered fics. It is on my to do list for my flash fiction stories on my other journal so I can easily sort out the fanfics at the same time. It is just finding the time to do it.

You're a star, thanks. Of course now I want to go to work even less! I know what you mean about finding time for stuff like that, there just never seems to be enough does there? Anyhoo, best get ready for work now, have a good day :o)

You're welcome.

I hope you have a good day at work. I have to leave shortly myself *groans* My own Kindle will be going with me - lunch time is the only reading time I get these days.
