Actually we don't know. In an interview, JK was asked about James, Lupin and Sirius but the questioner duffed up and said Lupin twice instead of Pettigrew.

Fawkesified would like to announce his triumphant return to occasional posting after two years of account stagnation.

The Changeling Hypothesis
Potter Puppet Pals - A hillarious animation about Harry and his posse! If this isn't allowed, IM me mods and I'll remove it immediately! I can't see why it wouldn't be, but it might 'bother' some people!

I used to hate going to weddings. The old people would poke me and say things like "You're next". They stopped, when, at funerals, I did it to them.
