[you kill me but build me up just to watch me break]  
Sirius Black crying over Remus Lupin is one of the best things. (Remus/Sirius is an occasional but usually sudden craving that I must indulge about twice a year, and now is that time.)

I just read rageprufrock's Seven Things That Never Happened At Hogwarts On Valentines Day, Or Maybe They Did, which included both crying, pining Sirius and furious-over-the-Prank Remus, and I've been rendered starry-eyed and want to clutch it to my meagre but enthusiastic bosom, if bosoms can be enthusiastic. Like, OH MY GOD:
He could instruct himself to be good, to stop being horrible, but it didn't matter then, because Sirius was sitting on the ground, knees dirty and crying and Remus could think of nothing else in the world he wanted more.
EVERYTHING I WANT. It's best because it all has a happy ending, of course. Sorry to spoil, but I felt I should mention because that quote sounds rather dark, and I find my interest in a fic drops off drastically if I think it won't end with sparkly rainbows.

The rest of the fic is good, though not precisely my style--at times the logic veered into cracky territory, not my thing, and at one point a boy gets turned temporarily into a girl but the narrative starts calling him "she," which rubbed me the wrong way. Yet if this fic were a book I owned, it would soon be worn out and the spine cracked at the part that has crying, pining, Sirius.

To tell the truth, I am too lazy and my internet to slow to turn to delicious or Google and comb through potentially awful fics, so I put this to you, flist: Anyone have Remus/Sirius recs where Remus is truly mad about the Prank? I only seem to find the ones where he handwaves it, which makes me pout. Bonus points if he really chews Sirius out over it.

Well, there are bits in Shoebox of course where there is Epic Fighting and whatnot - supper long!fic, and was never finished and all that, but really good none the less. Um... I know I've read some other good stuff, I just can't think of much right now. I always turn to SBP or Sam (http://sam-storyteller.dreamwidth.org/154868.html#hpshort) whenever I get the R/S bug. :D

Ooohhh I'm definitely checking this fic out.

As for Remus/Sirius I can only really recommend The Shoebox Project; it's the only MWPP fic that really feels like canon, you know?
