gaybellatrix said: ok I was thinking about the scene between remus and harry in the bribe in dh and how it seems so ooc for remus and thought I would ask you what you think of it? also it occurred to me that where sirius and harry hoped to see james in each other maybe in that scene remus and harry hoped to see sirius in each other? like maybe this isn't ooc for remus at all but he talked to harry like he wanted to talk to sirius? and harry does tell him that he's acting like sirius I don't know
I’m actually incredibly glad that you asked me about this! I think that a lot of the fandom calls that scene ooc. I really do not think that it is.
You see, the thing about Lupin’s famous reserved exterior and self control is that it’s partially a facade. For most of the books, Harry sees Remus in two modes- a) teacher mode, which is fairly obvious what that entails. When he is acting as a teacher or as some form of guidance, he’s incredibly kind and calm and you can see that sometimes Harry will say something (in POA, usually about the Marauders) and Remus will have a minor sor t of slip-up. But he also has- b) battle mode. Now, that means that either he is fighting or is prepared for a fight (such as the Shrieking Shack scene in PoA).
But in the Deathly Hallows scene, Remus is in neither mode. “Harry saw, for the first time ever, the shadow of the wolf upon his human face.” - now, Remus is very much a protector. I don’t think I need to point out the countless times he protects one of his friends or students. So, to Remus, the idea that he could have endangered his own child is horrifying. Of course, this “deranged” and “livid” Lupin never had a reason to come out in front of Harry before. It seems out of character to the reader because it seems out of character to Harry.
I think that Remus is afraid of harming his own child, because he is much more familiar with his internal nature, far more so than anyone else in the series. While other characters do accept and love Remus for who he is, I think that comes with the possibly unfortunate side affect of forgetting that he is inflicted with lycanthropy. Harry may be able to look past that (as he should) but Remus deals with it every day- he knows exactly how it affects him. “You know what I am and what I can do.”
To address the second part of your question, I think that Remus came to Harry in hopes of doing something he was familiar and comfortable with. Being with Harry, Ron, and Hermione would not have been incredibly different from being with the Marauders as he had done in the first war. I don’t think they were looking for Sirius in one another, necessarily, but Harry does say “I think you’re feeling a bit of a daredevil… You fancy stepping into Sirius’ shoes -“
I don’t think Remus was playing the daredevil, I think that he was avoiding having his worst fear come true. He never wants to hurt someone, especially someone he loves. His boggart is, after all, a full moon.
Now, I don’t mean that Remus isn’t kind and calm and reserved at all. I just think that those aren’t the only things about Remus Lupin that we need to be remembering. Remus was a very deeply troubled man that Harry honestly did not get to know very well, and he was a werewolf.
