    Truce

    Truce by Thirty2Flavors

    Summary: This, Sirius thought, was the sort of thing they ought to teach you in Care of Magical Creatures. It was far more likely than an encounter with a Hippogriff, and probably more dangerous. // In the face of Lily and James’ strengthening relationship, Sirius and Lily realize they have no choice but to make amends. 8,155 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is one of my most favorite pieces by Thirty2Flavors because she’s a lip-smacking genius when it comes to these characters. Her Remus is exactly the way Remus should be, both prefect and marauder without being manic depressive. Most authors struggle with Remus as a boy and a teenager, opting to either make him a carbon copy of Sirius and James or a depressed, shy Hermione. The balance struck here is excellent. Sirius, too, is well written and compelling, and the interaction between him and Lily and him and Remus is brilliantly composed. The dialogue is snappy and feels right for both the era and the characters, and some of the lines are pure gold. I just really adore this fic and everything about it.

    Why You Might Not Care: I don’t even know what to say here. Because you’re an idiot, I suppose. Or if you completely hate MWPP era fiction. Or if you’re really lazy or something.
