James gets a girlfriend so Lily starts pretending to go out with Remus to make him jealous but they end up making Sirius jealous instead (Because James heard them talking about the plan and is maybe a little bit smitten and amused.), for anon.siriuslyblackrules
"Lily, I don’t think-"
"Shhh. Make it look sexy."
Lily peered at the group of boys sitting the the opposite tree from where her and Remus were. James and Sirius were staring at them. She smirked and looked back down at a worried Remus.
"Have you ever reverse-kissed a girl before, Mr Prefect?" She asked teasingly.
"Lils, i’ve never kissed a girl at all before. You know i don’t swing that way."
"Well, Remus John Lupin, I shall give you your first straight kiss."
She bent down to Remus’ surprise and pressed his lips against his. Remus made a protesting noise but he didn’t pull back, already regretting his promise. Lily opened her eyes and looked up at the rest of the Marauders. Her heart sped up as she saw them walk towards their spot, Sirius rushing forward for some reasons. She pulled back and winked at Remus, running her hand through his hair in an loving manner.
"Oi, Evans! Show some respect, this is a public parc!" Sirius barked.
She looked up, raising an eyebrow as Remus sat up, feeling a bit dizzy.
"Why do you care, Black?" She said, although her eyes were fixed on a grinning James. She frowned, confused. It seemed like their mind had been swapped. Usualy James was the one glaring and Sirius was the one smirking…
"The hell I care ! You’re snogging our Moony in front of half of Hogwarts!” He spat. Remus blushed.
"You shagged half of Hogwarts, what’s your point?” She said distractedly, and leaned to kiss Remus on the cheek, her eyes still fixed on James.
His face darkened for a moment, but soon he was grinning again. Sirius made a puking noise.
"So, you and Remus, huh? Blimey, I would have never thought that." He gave a pointed look at Remus, who shrugged.
"Yeah, well, Remmy and I are as happy as can be together." She said in not so convincing tone, giving James a challenging look.
"I see…" He said indifferently, but he was no longer smiling. "How about a double date then, mh? Evie would love that." His lips crooked to the side again.
"What?! Prongs what the hell !!" Sirius shouted.
"Yeah, i bet she would.” Lily scoffed, ignoring Sirius. “but no, thanks. I’d rather let you live happily ever after with your girlfriend.” She spat, standing up to leave.
James grabbed her hand and made her spin around to face him. To her surprise, he was beaming.
"What an actress, Evans. Not as good as me, though." He grinned.
"What are you talking about?" She asked quickly.
"I heard you ask Moony to pretend to go out with you at the library the other day." He smirked. "You’re trying to make me as jealous as you are."
”Wait, what?” Sirius asked, looking between Lily and Remus with an offended expression.
"I’m not jealous…" Lily said, her cheeks heating up.
"I broke up with Evie a couple of days ago, after I heard you guys’ little chat in the library." He smiled. "But i’d lie if I said that your plan didn’t work. Well done, Evans."
Despite herself, Lily’s lips stretched into a wide smile. Behind them, Remus was watching Sirius with raised eyebrows.
"So you guys fooled Pads. I was so upset, and it turns out all of this was made up for Prongs. You should be ashamed, Evans. I’m deeply hurt." He pressed a hand on his left rib, looking wounded.
"You’ll get over it, eventually." James winked at him as he took Lily’s hand and walked away with her.
"You were upset?"
Sirius froze at Remus’ question. He spun around and found him on his feet, a little smile playing on his lips. He swallowed.
"Uh, well you’re my best mate, and so is Prongs and I didn’t want him to beat you up or something…" he lied.
"But James didn’t seem to want to beat me up." Remus’ smile grew wider.
"Well, yeah, yeah… I guess…"
"Sirius Orion Black, look into my eyes and solemnly swear you weren’t jealous."
Sirius’ cheek heat up as he looked at a beaming Remus. After a moment of hesitation, he spoke.
"I solemnly swear that I was jealous."
okay, lily and remus being best friends and remus going to her house every summer because things have always been awkward with his parents. and braiding flowers into her hair and looks from her mother because no matter what he says everyone thinks he and lily are dating. and platonic cheek kisses i cannot stress that enough. platonic cheek kisses.

At first I though this was a joke
Don’t ignore this Tumblr
Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.
This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim.
Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.
One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.
The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.
Please, if you witness abuse, no matter WHO the recipient is, report it. If someone you know if being abused (not just physically - in any way) help them. Connect them to resources. Gender doesn’t matter in this case - no one deserves to be abused.

Many of my followers know I run a somewhat-popular women’s blog for sexism-based violence. However, to me, recognizing male survivors/victims and women perpetrators is important as well.
Honestly, feminists need, need, NEED to recognize the existence of male survivors/victims and female perpetrators. Doing so breaks down the cliche of the “dominant male” and the “helpless woman” (not mutually exclusive) that are now important parts of the patriarchy that we want to break down. We want equality.
No abuser should go unpunished.
