"You brought me flowers?" Severus raised an eyebrow.

Remus beamed. "Indeed I did."


"Because I thought of you when I saw them," Remus kissed him on the cheek and handed the bouquet to his partner. "And I thought you deserved flowers today, it being Monday and all."

Severus took the flowers and studied them. "What on earth made you think of me when you saw these?"

"That's obvious, isn't it?"

"Not really, no." Severus stared at the blossoms in his hand. "They look like a mouth, and they seem to have a tongue, and although I haven't heard you complain about my oral skills, I somehow don't think that's the issue here."

Remus laughed heartily. "Now that you mention it, that might have been it."

"Very funny, Lupin," said Severus and reached out to touch the flowers. Then he hesitated for a minute. "Do they bite?"

Remus laughed. "No, they're not carnivorous if that's what you mean. Besides, biting is more my thing, isn't it?"

Severus nodded, but withdrew his finger nonetheless.

"So what is it about these flowers that made you think of me?"

"The name," said Remus with a huge grin. He took the flowers out of Severus' hands and put them down on the desk. He sat down on Severus' lap and smiled. "They're called snapdragons."


"Yes, it sounds almost like Snape, doesn't it?"

"Not really," said Severus.

"I know, but I just wanted to give you some pretty flowers. Do I really need an explanation?"

"I guess not," sighed Severus and kissed him.

Remus jumped up and took Severus' hand, pulling him out of the chair. "Now, how about reminding me of those wicked oral skills?"



"Tango? Us? Surely, you can't be serious, Remus."

"Of course I am serious, Severus. The dance of passion. We start on Wednesday."

"No, we are not!"

"But I've already paid the instructor, and I just know it will be so much fun."

"You paid up front without asking me? I thought you knew me better than that, Lupin."

"I know you better than you think, Severus."

"Then you will know that I never move in an organized way to any type of music."

"I know that, Severus. But why can't you do this one thing for me?"

"One thing? HAH. Why do I always have to do things for you?"

"Because you love me?"

"I don't remember love having anything to do with forced dancing, Lupin."

"No, but we are talking about one of the most sensual dances here, Severus. And I've already bought the outfit."

"So what?"

"The stilettos were pretty expensive."

"Go on..."

"And the dress weren't exactly cheap either."

"... what colour?"


"Wednesday, you said?"


"Then we should start practising right away so we don't look like complete dunderheads in front of the instructor."


It followed me home...

Remus came into the house with a grimace Severus interpreted to be a smile and pleading eyes. His arms were behind his back and gently he cleared his throat.

"What is it, Remus?" Severus sighed and put down the paper he was currently reading.

"Severus, before you say anything, I couldn't help it. It followed me home."

"What followed you home?" Severus drew his wand looking for whatever Remus was talking about.

Remus took out the thing behind his back. It was a blue ball of fur.

Severus stared at the Pygmy Puff and then back at Remus.

"I know you don't want pets," Remus started.

"I have enough trouble with your fleas," Severus snorted.

"But isn't this just the cutest thing you've ever seen?" Remus held the tiny blue creature in front of Severus' nose and the thing squeaked. "And I tried to ignore it, but it kept following me. I think it likes me."


"Can we keep it? Please?" Remus sounded like a five-year-old girl who had just picked up a stray cat. "I promise I'll take care of it and feed it. You will never notice it is here, except on Boxing Day, of course."

"If you must," sighed Severus and picked up the Daily Prophet, pretending to read a very interesting article.

Remus put the Pygmy Puff down next to Severus. "I'll go and find you something to eat." He patted the Pygmy Puff. "And you'll need a name. Let's see ..."

Severus heard Remus mumble to himself on the way into the kitchen. When the other man had disappeared through the door, he put down the paper and looked at the tiny creature now crawling towards him. He picked it up and stroked the fuzzy ball.

"So you came back, huh?" Severus smiled. "I knew it was a mistake to keep feeding you those chocolate biscuits. What do you think Remus will say when he discovers the jar is empty? Those were his favourites too, you know."

The furry ball squeaked again.

"Come here, Cookie, let's see what Remus has found in that kitchen for you."


Good vibrations

"What the...?" Severus threw away his quill and stormed up from his chair. He stormed upstairs to check on his lover. "Remus, are you okay?"

A wail came from the other side of the bathroom door. Severus drew his wand and the door flung open.

"Good, good, good, good vibrations," shrieked Remus in a terrible falsetto. Severus covered his ears in horror.

"Lupin, will you stop that," Severus shouted.

The voice stopped immediately and the water was turned off. A dripping head appeared from behind the shower curtains. "Oh, Severus. I didn't hear you come in."

"Why am I not surprised?" asked Severus.

"Have you come to join me?" he smirked.

"Not exactly," said Severus. "I came to see who was dying up here."

"Dying? What are you talking about?"

"Never mind," sighed Severus and turned towards the door.

"Now that you're here, why don't you join me?" Remus opened the curtain, displaying his wet and naked body.

"I do have work to do, Lupin," Severus said, but something was dragging him towards the shower.

"I'll show you some good vibrations, Severus," smirked Remus and pulled a fully clothed Severus into the shower, kissing him deeply.

Severus gasped as they came up for air. "Fine, as long as you promise not to sing!"


Love is like a red, red rose

"Oh, my love is like a red, red rose?" Severus put down the card and looked sceptically at Remus. "What is this nonsense?"

"Well, happy anniversary to you too," hissed Remus and threw himself into a chair, arms crossed over his chest. "I just wanted to give a little something."

"I guess, thank you?" said Severus bewildered and looked at the card again. "Newly sprung in June? What sprung in June? It's September."

"It's a bloody song Severus. I just tried to be romantic."


"Because that's what people usually do on anniversaries," said Remus and stormed into the kitchen.

Seconds later, Severus heard the angry scrambling and breaking of glass. He put down the card and went after his partner.

"Remus, please."

"Just forget it, Severus," Remus sniffled.

The rest of the day became quite awkward for the pair of them. Severus tried to make it up to Remus, but the damage was already done. What was supposed to be a special day for them, turned into a day spent in mostly silence and with only short, polite replies from Remus' side.

When bedtime arrived, Severus was already in bed when Remus entered the room. The man undressed and walked over to the bed. He put his wand on the bedside table and saw a red card on his pillow.

Remus' face lit up. "What is this?"

"You're not the only one who can be romantic, you know," smirked Severus and Remus grabbed the card eagerly.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Happy anniversary
Now can I please do you?


Yellow or blue

"Yellow, blue, pink or orange?"

"Yellow or blue or what?" Severus mumbled without even looking up from his book.

"Just choose one, please." Remus begged.



Severus looked up and saw the werewolf holding a folded piece of paper in his hands. The front had something that looked like four squares in different colours on it.

"Just pick a colour," said Remus with an odd smile on his face.


"Because I want to predict your future?"

"With that thing? I can't remember that from Divination."

Remus nodded eagerly. "Yes, with this. Now pick a colour."

"Black," said Severus and turned his attention to his book. He didn't know what the werewolf was doing, and quite frankly, he didn't care.

"You can't choose black," Remus moaned.

"Why not?"

"You have to choose one of these!" Remus pointed at the thing in his hand.

"Blue then!" Severus said annoyed.

"B-L-U-E," Remus mumbled while moving his fingers so that the thing gaped in all directions.

"Two, four, six or eight?"

"What now?"

"Just pick a number already," Remus sighed.

"Fine, four," mumbled Severus.

"One, two, three, four," said Remus while doing odd things with the paper again.

"One more number," he said.


"No, two, four, six or eight!"

"I just said four."

"But now you have to choose one again."


Remus opened up the thing and began laughing. "You want to have a threesome with Hagrid!"

"Excuse me?"

"This says you want to have a threesome with Hagrid."

"I do not want that!"

"This says you do. And this predicts the future and tells me your most inner wish."

"You made that thing, perhaps it's your inner wish!" Severus muttered.

"Merlin, no!" said Remus.

"I know you are a size queen, Remus, but Hagrid? That's extreme, even for you."

"Stop it, Severus."

"You said it yourself, that thing tells your most inner wish."

"Incendio" Remus pointed his wand at the thing, and it burst into flames in front of them. "Now it's gone. Will you shut up?"

Severus laughed. "So Hagrid? Really?"


Dust bunnies

"DADDY," Teddy shrieked. "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!" Remus was still downstairs, but Severus stormed into the child's room, his wand at the ready.

In the middle of the bed sat the boy, the covers pulled over his head and shaking. Severus looked around the room, but couldn't see anything.

He walked over to the boy and sat down on the bed. "What's the matter, little one?"

Carefully, he pulled the duvet off of Teddy's head, finding a terrified little boy under it.

"M-m-m-monsters," Teddy stuttered and burrowed his head in Severus' lap.

"Where?" asked Severus and looked around the room once again.

"Under there," said Teddy and pointed at his bed.


"Remus, I think it's high time you cleaned your son's room!" Severus called as he walked downstairs to find his partner.

"So now he's my son?" Severus heard the man answer from the sitting room. "Why can't you do it? It's your house."

Severus gritted his teeth and walked into the room. The werewolf would do anything to get out of house work. "So you'd rather have your son have nightmares than to do a couple of simple cleaning charms? I'm impressed by your laziness, Lupin."

"I'm not lazy!"

"Well, I managed to tell him they were only dust bunnies, so I think he will be fine for the night, but you're cleaning that room tomorrow!"

"Daddy, look!"

Both of them turned at the sound of the voice behind them. A boy with dust grey hair was standing there, beaming.

"I have bunnies!" Teddy said proudly. "This is Hank and this one is Betty. This is Ollie and he's my favourite. He's sleeping in my bed."


"I'm on it, Severus!"
