Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.
but imagine it though
remus and sirius being given custody right after james and lily were killed. the two of them having no idea what to do with him because all they ever did was watch him for a few hours.
remus walking around the house at night with harry, bouncing him and singing to him, trying to get him to stop crying for lily and james.
sirius laying in bed with harry on his chest and remus pressed in against him on lazy sunday mornings when neither of them having anything to do.
having to try and figure out how to explain to little harry how his mom and dad aren’t coming back
raising harry in a loving house, him actually knowing things about his parents, growing up with laughter and love and happiness and stories
just remus and sirius raising harry
I NEED ALL OF THESE KINDS OF FICS. ALL OF THEM.
It’s still in progress (but it’s over 100,000 words already) and not EXACTLY what was asking for— Sirius’s custody of Harry isn’t exactly given so much as he took it— but I’ve got A Twist of Fate. Lots of Sirius and Remus raising Harry, Harry with siblings, Harry with Neville as his BFF. All the domestic Potter AU.
An older fic/verse is "Stealing Harry" by Sam_Storyteller (aka Sam Vimes or Copperbadge).
"On a dark night long ago, Sirius Black took a wrong turn and never found Peter Pettigrew. Instead of Azkaban, Sirius settled down in Little Whinging to keep an eye on his godson, and hired Remus Lupin to run his bookshop for him. Then one day when Harry was eight, Sirius found out how the Dursleys treated him, and stole him away."
Reblogging because I need this.
