Messy Minds ↭ Remus Lupin
Frankie Vander's mind was a mess, to say at the least. They were worried about everything, especially this year. This was the year they went back to Hogwarts with a whole new identity. Frankie, previously Clarissa, had came out as non-binary to their parents not that long ago, who were perfectly okay with their identity. But Hogwarts was a different story. How would they get all of the thousands of people in Hogwarts to call them Frankie and not Clarissa? What if their friends didn't except them? What if the teachers treated them differently? They had to change thier identity and pronouns, they couldn't possibly get everyone to use them, could they? And on top of that, it's O.W.L year, so they had to worry about that, too. Everything was a mess. Frankie was a mess. Their mind was a mess.
Remus Lupin's mind was a mess. His friend's were becoming more suspucious of him, and what if they found out about his 'Furry Little Problem?' What if they didn't except him? What if they were scared of him, and started to drift away from him? What if they were angry at him for not telling him, and forced him to leave the Marauder's. And on top of that, he had to study for O.W.Ls and tend to Prefect duties. Everything was a mess. Remus was a mess. His mind was a mess.
But someone else is a mess aswell, and they both were completely oblivious to it. Until they met one night, a night when they both were especially a mess, and instantly click.
Because they were both suffering from a mess they call a mind.
