The voices in the map
With the map he just took from Harry, Remus returns to his office.
Harry had said, he had seen Peter on the map. Remus should check that, but there is something about the map that makes his heart clench.
He can hardly speak around the lump in his throat, can’t finish the sentence they came up with what feels like a lifetime ago.
When suddenly, words appear.
The amusement over his sixteen year old’s self quickly falls. They always answer together. All of them. That leaves the answer he dreads most.
Forcibly, Remus reminds himself that he isn’t talking to his friends. He is talking to their echoes. To the versions of them that will forever stay sixteen years old, as long as the map exists.
He needs to know.
He needs to know the truth.

WE MUST BRING OUR OWN LIGHT TO THE DARKNESS.
NOXTMS is an appless and au group set in a modern golden trio era. seven years have passed since the battle of hogwarts that saw not only the death of harry potter, but the defeat of lord voldemort at the hands of the surviving dumbledore’s army. seven years, where individuals grieved, grew, and moved on - their peace tentative in the way it always is and ruined when the rumors of bellatrix lestrange & her associates attempting another resurrection proved to be correct. the dark lord’s last & BEST lieutenant succeeded in returning him to life - though the return of harry potter & regulus black proved an unintended side effect. it has become obvious that nothing, not even peace, lasts. everything ends, though you cannot step into the same stream twice. the new threat has arrived, and it’s up to you to decide whether this time, all will be well.
NO ONE ELSE IS GOING TO DO IT FOR US.
