    It's probably the most common slash pairing that doesn't involve Harry, Malfoy, or Snape.
    I'm still bitter from reading this one really interesting story a while ago when suddenly, with no foreshadowing, a Remus/Sirius sex scene came out of nowhere.

    There used to be entire sites dedicated to this, similar to SIYE or Portkey.

    Think the big name back int the day was Red Moon Rising, and it was all about Sirius/Remus pairing. I only know this because I was digging through GeoCities sites, because everyone used to have their own, and clicked a fic rec in one of the comments. Instant regret.

    Buzzfeed does have a reputation of poaching content from Reddit so what most likely happened is that they went to r/hpfanfiction, sorted by "Most Popular" and picked the first 21 posts on there that were fics.

    Buzzfeed is pretty much garbage, no matter what.

    IIRC the ship name was "Wolfstar."

    The things you learn from having only the FF.net "Update Date" filter enabled.

    Their investigative reporting is actually pretty solid. They've got several Pulitzer Prize winners, their editor is a former Politico guy. Buzzfeed is trying to become a legitimate news outlet, white house press pass and the works. Their clickbait listicles are still cancer though.

    Trying is the key word here. I know them more for their list than their political coverage. That and the worth it series on YouTube.

    You know, I would have been much happier not knowing that Remus/Sirius was such a prevalent Ship. Do I even want to know how such a relationship is portrayed, or is it just the same old shtick as 90% of Slash Fics?

    That probably depends on how much into their bestiality the author is... D:

    Sometimes, I really hate the Internet.
