Time travel. Was that really what this was? This was all bloody insane. Reg read alive, and Remus, Remus looked rough. Like, really fucking rough. Like "I've been undercover with werewolves too long" rough. But if the war ended months ago then why was Remus still looking like this? Sirius always made it a point to force feed Moony when he came back. Why did he look like he'd been sleeping rough?
"The war actually ended?" He attempted his usual cocky grin, but couldn't quite find it. He had noticed the way Remus never actually met his gaze. "I'm assuming we won. Mopped the floor with the DEs and are living the high life?"
Except they clearly weren't, or Remus wouldn't look like that. Sirius wouldn't have let Remus look like that. So what had happened? Had they lost? And why the Hell were they being time zapped to Hogwarts
