So, for those of you who were once following this, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your lovely comments. And I apologize for failing so at timely updates. But, IT IS FINISHED! I hope you enjoy.
Title: Of Silver Light and Shadows, Part 12 of 12
Characters/Pairings: Remus/Sirius, James/Lily, Peter, assorted Order members.
Rating: PG-13 for this part. The series ranges PG to NC-17
Summary: Life just after Hogwarts, life in the Order, is an adjustment. Herein, there's some romance, some angst of the war-time-growing-up kind, some humour, some absurd miscommunication, some adventure, and a little smut.
Notes: This is a series that was started at nest_of_spiders in August of 2007 (oh yes, that long ago!). It takes place over 17 days in August of 1979. Thank you so much to elizassecret for her beta work on every single part, and to elsane, gryffindor_j, and sambethe for beta help on story line and other sections.
