Fanfic: The Cure

I started writing a fanfic about two years ago. It was going to be a short, multi-chaptered piece about Lupin’s childhood. I wrote a prologue, an epilogue, and part of the first chapter. And…it gathered dust, buried deep on my hard drive. Then, HBP came out, and my theory about why and by whom Lupin was bitten was thoroughly Joss-ed. But recently it has come to my attention that the SQ would soon be accepting submissions from new authors, so I was motivated to dust it off and have another look. And when I did, I said, “Hey! The prologue and the epilogue still work, and if I squish ‘em together, and make a few additions and alterations, I could have a decent little one-shot!” So…that is what I did.

Title: The Cure
Characters: Remus Lupin and the other Marauders; cameo by Andromeda Black
Summary: In their first year at Hogwarts the Marauders encounter a common hazard of the Wizarding world, and Remus Lupin learns that his friends have discovered his secret.
Ships: Friendships! Hooray!
