One of the fests I really wanted to participate in this year was the Remix challenge. I was overjoyed and scared shitless to receive my assignment for remixing one of minnow_53
's fics. For those of you who aren't acquainted with minnow's fics, she's a genius working in the medium of geniusness. I love everything she writes so I had a bit of a holyshithowiamigoingtodothismoment
. Then I went and read her "safe story" In No Man's Land
just so I could see what I wasn't allowed to touch. I really hope that's her safe story because she is going to write a continuation because I loved it and I feel like I need the next bit. Then I started going through her massive
archive and glutting myself on all her amazing fics. Initially I was going to remix Alphabet Soup
, because I saw a fun idea for a story there. Then I read Thirteen
and was enraptured by it but wasn't going to touch it with a ten foot pole for a couple reasons. First off it's genius just as is and completely awesome and second Remus is an honest to goodness should be rotting in jail paedophile and I knew if I remixed it that people would immediately be driven away because of that fact. But in the end I couldn't get Sirius from that story out of my head and when I try to write to please people it blows up in my face when I write because I want to write it goes much better.
So here is my "out-take" from Thirteen
. If you haven't read minnow's fic and can read Remus in an unflattering way, go read it.
Secrets and Lies (The Ignorance is Bliss Remix)
Sirius hides potential evidence of Remus's misdeeds.

Many many thanks for torino10154
for the look over and a HUGE thanks to my lovely beta midnitemarader
. When I posted the fic it was on my sister's fucked up computer so going back through I noticed some errors that I failed to fix, sorry. ( Secrets and Lies )
