I've offered ficlets to people who bid on my livelongnmarry auctions but didn't win, and I'll be posting these ficlets as I write them. Thank you, bidders!

6. nanthimus prompted me with Remus/Harry, feral (the wolf takes control).

House Proud (PG; Remus/Harry; 220): Wolf trumps cat.

Remus was proud of the cottage; he'd spent almost every day for a year restoring it. Harry had groused about the "camping" they'd had to do during its less-than-complete stage, but there had been ways to distract him from his irritation, and Harry had almost always fallen in line with Remus' renovation schemes.

Unfortunately, Harry's acquiescent manner didn't extend to the subject of the feral cats that populated the meadow in which their cottage sat. Harry loved the annoying little buggers and would spend hours lying in the grass and reading to them—aloud! He'd named them all, as well, and his first question home from a mission was usually, "How're the cats doing?" rather than commenting upon Remus' alterations to their home.

Even now, Harry was out there—having been away over two weeks!—talking to the blasted moggies instead of kissing Remus hello.

Enough is enough, Remus thought, his hackles raising.

~*~

The unearthly growl from the hedge startled Diddles, Dot, and Dandy, sending them flying after the rest of their friends. Harry chuckled and rose to find Remus, looking as vexed as he'd hoped, glowering from above the greenery.

"I've missed—"

No one kissed like Remus when he was asserting his place, and Harry took no little enjoyment and pride in the feline members of the household for knowing theirs.

ETA: carawen, dizilla, lexywrites, and pagerd, I haven't received prompts from you, but if you'd prompt me, I'd be happy to write you ficlets, as well! :D

Silly Harry. Only he would talk to cats to make a wolf jealous. Now if she had prompted with Severus in a similar situation, you could have used snakes and parseltongue. And wouldn't that have been yummy? ;) /end diehard Snarry fangirling. XD

Severus would figure out a way to play with the snakes and Harry. ;)
