FIC: The Frame (James Sirius/Sirius, NC-17)

Title: The Frame
Author: mindabbles
Prompt: S104 by writcraft
Pairing(s): James Sirius Potter/Sirius Black, mention of past James/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~11,700
Content/Warnings: There's nothing the rating or the pairing wouldn't imply. Open ending.
Summary: What are the ethical complications of falling for a person you're named after? How about the logistical complications of falling for someone who shouldn’t be alive? James would rather, he finds, not look too closely at either, not when Sirius makes him forget anyone else exists.
Author's Notes: Writcraft, thank you for the opportunity to write a pairing I honestly never thought I would write! It was a challenge and a fun one. Thank you to the mods for patience and kindness and for running this fest, even as challenging as it can be. Thank you to e for the once and twice-over.

ART

On Holiday [James Sirius/Teddy | PG]
It's their first holiday together without the family, but they haven't done much sightseeing. Correction: they haven't done any sightseeing.

Pining [Lily Luna/Rose | PG]
It's a wonder no one besides Hugo has noticed that Lily Luna is pining for Rose.

FIC

Let it Bloom [Lily Luna/Pansy | NC-17]
After their one-night stand, Lily had thought she wouldn’t be seeing more of Pansy. She’d never been so happy to be wrong.

They would have told me, right? [James Sirius/Scorpius | PG-13]
Albus had heard the rumours. It was hard not to when his best mates were the subject.
He loved them. Scorp and James. He really did. But he wouldn't complain if they decided to take it down a notch, though. Snaps with the people they presumably actually dated. Maybe a statement to the press. But Scorpius would just laugh in that disarming way he had from years of PR witches' work to smooth out the awkward. We're just mates. And then turn around and he would have Jamie on his lap, handsy as only two boys living out of suitcases and Quidditch locker rooms could be. They were up in each other's pockets so long now, it was impossible to think of one without the other. The press had a name for that: Scames.


The Boyfriend Look™ [James Sirius/Teddy | PG]
General reviews for Teddy’s taste in clothes include: a sartorial travesty (Albus Potter), absolutely painful (Lily Potter), very 80s (Hugo Granger-Weasley). James just sees Teddy.

Love and Letters [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG-13]
A series of letters between Unspeakable Scorpius Malfoy and Professor Albus Potter.

Rarely Pure and Never Simple [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
James really enjoys his life. He likes sharing a flat with his best mate, Teddy. He likes being work-partners with said best mate. He likes going out at the weekends and shagging random girls. At least, that’s what he tells people. The truth isn’t that simple, and when James accidentally manages to get hit by a curse that makes him unable to lie he learns that hiding the fact that he’s completely and utterly arse over tit in love with Teddy is more complicated than expected.

I Have To Tell You Something [Lily Luna Gen | PG]
Lily used to love family dinners until divorce, Quidditch contracts and one too many arguments ruined the atmosphere. Now that things were finally getting better, she's forced to bring her own problems to the table. Because even her tough-woman act isn't strong enough to hide the demons in her mind anymore.

Everything He Ever Wanted [James Sirius/Teddy | PG-13]
James has had a lot of favorite things in his life...or has he?

Out of Hand [Albus Severus/Harry | NC-17]
Al gets into constant trouble at school and Harry is at his wit's end. Maybe a firm hand will set him right.

Hallo Spaceboy [James Sirius/Teddy | PG-13]
“If this mirror could talk,” James remembers declaring, already one drink down and trying to tidy up his ridiculous costume eyeliner, “it would say we look bloody amazing.”

Teddy’s arm was warm when he wrapped it around James’s shoulder, pulling him closer.

“We always do, love.” Teddy tugged on a long curl of James’s hair before tucking it behind his ear, then smoothing the whole lot of it back. “We’re the fittest blokes at the party, us.”

James’d had to give up on the eyeliner after that; he was grinning too hard, flushed and happy and basking in Teddy’s attention (fit blokes, we’re fit blokes, that’s us), and he couldn't bloody stop.


the salacious ideas of peculiar boys [Albus Severus/Scorpius | NC-17]
Albus and Scorpius have never been lacking on the idea front, but this time, rather than trying to change time and consequentially resurrecting a great darkness and eternal gloom, they've decided to try out something a little more... sexually experimental.
alternatively titled: fellas, is it gay to jerk off your best friend?


The Frame [James Sirius/Sirius| NC-17]
What are the ethical complications of falling for a person you're named after? How about the logistical complications of falling for someone who shouldn’t be alive? James would rather, he finds, not look too closely at either, not when Sirius makes him forget anyone else exists.
