Disentangling his arm from Sirius', Remus slung it companionably over Sirius' shoulders. "He does feel like a Marauder," he agreed. "I don't know what his mother was like, but he reminds me of you in some ways."
It was clear, hearing the way Sirius talked, that his friend did know him, knew him in ways Remus had forgotten others could see over the last few years. Honestly, he didn't think anyone but Sirius and the others would know him well enough to see when he shut down like Teddy just had. Squeezing his friend's shoulders, he tipped his head to the side to touch Sirius'. "I don't know if a puppy buffer is needed. But, I can't think of a better one," he declared softly. "I want to see you happy, too, Pads. No point in living a second life if you're not going to be any happier than you were, right?"
Biting his lip, he wondered if he should ask, but decided that, of anyone, he was possibly the one who could. "What about you? And Regulus. I know your parents treated you terribly. But, that wasn't your brother's fault. You two could have a chance like Teddy and I are getting."
