    The Firewhiskey Incident

    The Firewhiskey Incident by Lady Bracknell

    Summary: In a lot of ways, it was Joni Mitchell’s fault. In some ways, it was Sirius’. The Firewhiskey had a bit to do with it, Remus admitted, but when it came down to it, really, he had no-one to blame but himself. Humour, 6,738 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Another classic Lady Bracknell fic.  This one is fantastically funny, and the set up is gold.  It’s adult Marauders at their highest (or lowest, depending on your point of view) and, while plot-wise it perhaps lacks a certain — shall we say — thematic punch, in the end the goal is to amuse and Lady Bracknell delivers.  This slides seamlessly along side the other works in her universe quite well, but this talented author never makes her previous stories required reading, and this stands alone quite splendidly.  Fans of Lady Bracknell will delight in the throw-away references, and those just jumping in will hardly realize they’re missing anything.

    Why You Might Not Care: Oh, for goodness sake why wouldn’t you read it?  There’s drunken hijinks and even hints of Remus/Sirius depending on how you take the wink at the end for those who like that kind of thing.  It’s Lady Bracknell, doing what she does best.  What’s not to like?

      I had read this before and it is nice to see it here! I’m on the fence about Remus and Tonks — for me, Remus was made for Sirius — so it was nice to read a rec that illustrated how near and dear these guys were to each other when they were young!

      Thanks for the rec

      I love this fic! It’s so in keeping with a boys night out, drinking games, table dancing Remus?! and a bar fight! The morning after aspects are to die over, especially Lily Potter. And the did we or didn’t we aspect is a perfect finish.
