Friday Fics Fix - HP Halloween: Nostalgia Ain't What It Used To Be

'“To mine” interjected James, the tall boy with mousy hair and glasses. “Padfoot ran to mine and now he’s staying there.'

Welcome to the second week of F3's* HP Halloween!

Yep, October is for Harry Potter fanfiction - the king of fandoms in terms of quantity (you can't deny it, it's totally true!)

*F3 = Friday Fics Fix. It's just easier to say sometimes. 😅

For this week's fic, we're gonna travel back in time, to pre-Harry Potter, post-Fantastic Beasts, days - so be careful how you set your time-turners!

...we wouldn't want you taking a wrong turn and ending up face to face with Grindelwald! 😉

So this is 'Marauders Era' fanfiction - James, Sirius, Remus, and Peter.

This setting is always popular in fanfiction - maybe because there's so little of it in the books, and the views that we do get are somewhat contradictory.

(Which I think is clever, tbh. We never get a 'definitive' view of any of the Marauders, or of Snape. You gotta love an enigma or two 😉)

...And that means that there're a lot of gaps and 'what ifs' for fanfiction to fill in!

See? There's even a gif!

This week's fic is, at heart, a gentle li'l fic.

And I think we can all do with a gentle li'l fic sometimes 😊

It's short and sweet, about the Marauders on the train back to Hogwarts, supporting each other and just being damned good friends.

It's cotton-candy levels of wholesomeness!

...And that's refreshing, sometimes.

This week's fic, then, dearest nerdlets, is:

Return to Hogwarts by moonyspatrcnus

  1. I know a lot of people love the marauders and wanted more from them in the books. I was kinda indifferent tbh, but I did always love Lupin so I would have liked to see more of him.

    1. I'm with you - I wouldn't have minded more of them, but I'm OK with what we got! It leaves an intriguing space for fanfiction to fill though ;)
