Sneak Attack (aka Remus is smooth as fuck)
So a while ago dandelions-fly asked me for some of her most favourite wolfstar pairing for when I asked for palette challenges, buuuuuuut I got bored with that and I got this really dumb idea for a comic for them so I decided to do that instead. I don’t really ship these guys too strongly so I’m not quite sure about what there interactions would be like but for this comic I imagined Sirius just fooling around and trying to surprise Remus but Remus is so used to how he acts so he counterattacks and Sirius is a huge dork about it.
Remus and Sirius during the First Wizarding War.
The war was starting in the 1970s, so when they got out of school …
"You don’t know who Voldemort’s supporters are, you don’t know who’s working for him and who isn’t; you know he can control people so that they do terrible things without being able to stop themselves. You’re scared for yourself, and your family, and your friends. Every week, news comes of more deaths, more disappearances, more torturing… The Ministry of Magic’s in disarray, they don’t know what to do, they’re trying to keep everything hidden from the Muggles, but meanwhile, Muggles are dying too. Terror everywhere… panic… confusion…"And these two young people are among the ones fighting in this War. So if one of them is late one night … He might be dead in a ditch somewhere with a Dark Mark above the body.
"Remus," Sirius whined from the back of his pony as he was so like to do. "How much farther?"
"We haven’t even left the Shire, Sirius."

I kind of hate drawing them old; it breaks my heart, to think of their time together drawing to a close. Also, it makes me feel lazy for not using reference.
I didn’t really mean to turn this drawing into a full blown illustration, it was just a really rough sketch in my sketchbook that I decided to clean up in photoshop, and then suddenly it was like two days later and I had this.
Don’t care if he’s guilty, don’t care if he’s not
He’s good and he’s bad and he’s all that I’ve got
I got carried away. Lost plan. got a new plan. Over all, it’s post Azkaban Sirius-on-the-run inspired, and I suppose the idea would be Sirius having to leave again after being reunited with Remus (and gotten some, uhm. Less suspicious clothes. And a bath. Food.
Sex.) now coloured
"That’s not regulation uniform, you know, Moony."
"I ate three squirrels last night and yet I’m still getting my attire critiqued by a seventeen year old boy in a waistcoat."
not even close to done but i thought i’d post what i have so far
this is perfect.
Kept pristine. One of Remus’s favorite memories: Sirius and him happy with each other; it was beautiful, simple, perfect. It had sat on the mantle next to Lily and James’s wedding photo and the picture of Harry the day he was born. His favorite picture.
Later burned. In a fit of rage. Lily and James dead. Peter dead, with Sirius as his killer. Everything he’d loved gone. How had he ever loved a man who could do what Sirius had done.
Later salvaged. Rescued from the flames as Remus sobbed. He wanted to hate Sirius. He did hate him for betraying Lily and James, for killing Peter. But he couldn’t hate Sirius. At least not the Sirius who smiled at him from the photo where he sat arm around a younger Remus, both so in love.
