“Lupin was lowering his wand, gazing fixedly at Black. The Professor walked to Black’s side, seized his hand, pulled him to his feet so that Crookshanks fell to the floor, and embraced Black like a brother”
— Remus reunites with Sirius[1]

Wolfstar is the slash ship between Sirius Black and Remus Lupin from the Harry Potter fandom.


Sirius and Remus met at Hogwarts in their first year when they were sorted into the same house. They became best friends, along with James and Peter. In their second year Sirius discovered that Remus was a werewolf, so he and the other Marauders decided to become Animagi to help make his transformations during full moon bearable. When they left Hogwarts, they joined the Order of the Phoenix together. However, they became aware that there was a spy in the Order, and Sirius suspected Remus. This led to him not telling Remus that he had switched places with Peter as Lily and James' Secret Keeper. When the Potters were betrayed, Remus (along with the rest of the world) believed Sirius was guilty. They were separated for twelve years during Sirius' imprisonment in Azkaban. Remus eventually discovered that Sirius was innocent when he spotted the supposedly-dead Peter Pettigrew on the Marauder's Map, and was reunited with his old friend. They both apologized for doubting each other, but had to separate again as Sirius went on the run. When Voldemort returned, they both rejoined the newly reformed Order and fought against Death Eaters together, including at the Department of Mysteries, during which Sirius is killed. Remus was extremely upset by Sirius' death. Nearly two years later Remus is killed in the Battle of Hogwarts, and Harry sees them both when he uses the Resurrection Stone, implying that they are in the same place after death.


One of the most popular slash pairings in the fandom, especially of the parent generation. The film portrayal of this relationship also helped a great deal to further the ship's popularity, with Snape literally saying they're "quarreling like an old married couple".

On AO3, it is the most written ship for both characters and the second most written ship in the Harry Potter fandom.
