Summary: Remus is tapped to investigate a magical girl in London and finds himself ensnared in a world full of demons, a secret war, and the life of a rather hyperactive thirteen-year-old Aino Minako.
Why: Argh, I love this crossover. The author does an amazing job of mixing the two fandoms and keeping it accurate to canon. This is set during Sailor V's days in London, when Remus Lupin is sent to investigate both her and the strange dark creatures that she battles. The relationship between Minako and Remus, which seems so unlikely at first glance, is done extremely well. I also found this interesting because it addresses a period of that, as someone who doesn't actively seek out Sailor Venus fic, was completely new to me. Add in top-notch characterization of both Minako and Remus, and you have a first-rate crossover that I highly recommend.

Summary: Percy just wants to do his job, not another guy... at least until the portraits of Messrs. Padfoot and Moony take over his office. A tale of one man's badly faltering denial. (sequel to Trompe L'Oeil for Two)
Why: And to follow up on my rec of "Trompe L'Oeil", the sequel! The focus of this story is more on Percy than the Sirius/Remus aspect, although they are still there. The thing I like about this story (beyond the simple fact that it's Percy!), is that it's fun. It's so nice to see a light-hearted future for everyone. Just imagine it. Portrait Sirius and Remus are enjoying a nice reunion and poor Percy finds himself obliged to listen to it. And it keeps happening. And happening. Then he happens to meet up with Oliver, and things get interesting. This story just makes me smile whenever I think about it. I have so much love. ♥

Yes, I've done a horrible job of reccing this. Humblest apologies.

Summary: Thanks to the magic of wizarding portraiture, a fully-canon-compliant happily-ever-after for Remus/Sirius. Twenty years post-war, Messrs. Moony and Padfoot do not constitute a still life.
Why: This story is short, but perfect, and a wonderful set-up for its sequel, which I will be reccing as soon as I finish typing this. I just love this idea, and the author pulls it off with flair. If you're looking for some fun Sirius/Remus to balance out the depressing, this is a good one for you.
