Thin Ice"Sirius, please come back here."Thin Ice by *StarryHunter
"Yeah, c'mon, Pads. This is a really bad idea."
Sirius let a smirk form as he turned to peer over his shoulder at his friends. All three were huddled together, watching him with a mix of worry, apprehension and awe. He chuckled, turning to face them fully as he folded his arms over his chest.
"You were the one that suggested it, Prongs."
"Yes, well... I guess I didn't think you were daft enough to try it. Come back." James was frowning, looking much more serious than was normal for him. That in itself should have made Sirius walk back to where his friends stood, but--
"I'm already committed, Mate." He shrugged, then bounced where he was standing. "Besides. It's solid enough!"
Remus winced. "For now, yeah." He shook his head. "No. I'm asking you, as a friend, to come back here. But I'm telling you, as a Prefect, that if you don't, I'll take further measures."
That even caused James to look at the werewolf with a surprised sort of look. Remus glanced at a
The Unexpected GiftIt wasn't exactly uncommon for him to remain at Hogwarts for Christmas. Since starting, since being sorted into Gryffindor and becoming the sore disappointment of his family that he was, he spent nearly every Christmas at the castle. Occasionally, James remained with him, one year Remus had. Peter had tried, but had been convinced to go home by his parents every time.The Unexpected Gift by *StarryHunter
He'd had the offer to go home with James this year. It was, after all, his home now. And, much as he felt more at home there than he ever did at Grimmauld Place, he declined.

The Great Hall had been, as usual, decorated for the holiday. Twelve trees lined the room, all shining with twinkling fairy lights. Red, gre
Late Night SnackSirius stepped out of the kitchen, glancing around him as the portrait closed behind him. Pockets full of cookies, cakes and other various snacks, he retraced his steps through the darkened halls of the castle, gaze constantly moving about as he searched for anyone he might regret running into at this time of night.Late Night Snack by *StarryHunter
It was rare, to say the least, for him to slip out at night all on his own. But he'd finished his essay far sooner than he'd expected and decided to garner he and his mates some snacks. No one disagreed with the plan, but no one volunteered to join him, either.
Hearing a sound ahead of him, Sirius quickly took refuge in an empty classroom, extinguishing the light from his wand and waiting in the darkness as he listened for footsteps. None came, even after several minutes of waiting. He hesitated, then peered around and out of the room. Nothing moved, from what he could tell, so he lit his wand and continued on his way.
He wondered if any of his friends would be done their h
