a. My favorite thing about that character.
It's hard for me to choose a favorite, but I think what always struck me was Remus' sense of decency. Maybe it's because he was friends with someone like James Potter but it is what it is.

b. My least favorite thing about that character.
I think Remus sometimes gets so caught up in his own insecurity that he ends up hurting people he is trying to protect.

c. One person I would ship them with in their own verse.
Honestly, I'm on huge Remus/Evan kick right now...

d. One crossover ship for them I think would be neat.
I actually have no idea. I have a hard enough time pairing Remus with HP characters lol.

e. One crossover universe for them I think would be even neater.
Teen Wolf. Because, come on. ;)

f. Their ship from hell.
I actually feel like Remus wouldn't want to date Sirius. There are some people who are awesome as friends but a relationship with them would be exhausting.

g. Their song.
All I could think of, when I saw this question, was "My Lair" by Bear's Den. So I'm going with my gut hah.

h. The title of their biography or autobiography.
"In the Shadow of the Moon." It's a biography written by a mildly over-enthusiastic history fan specializing in the First and Second Voldemort wars. There's a fair a mount of romantisation of Remus' status as a werewolf which has been pointed out by rights activists, but the general public eats it up with a spoon.

i. The last bad dream they had.
It was during the war, so the sort of thing you might expect: people dying -- his wife, his infant son, Harry. Remus doesn't dream in much detail. It's all shapes and feelings and such.

j. How they're gonna shuffle off the mortal coil, if they haven't already.
Well, Remus dies in canon, so I guess we already know :/

I'm going to use this meme to compel you to say something nice about Natasha Rostova! Or a minimum of one nice thing, anyway. Or if you'd rather not, how about Vera instead?

a. My favorite thing about that character.
Natasha, for all her other faults, is not unkind. Most of the time she means well and the older she gets the more her compassionate side makes itself known.

b. My least favorite thing about that character.
How completely self-absorbed she is. It's not confidence or cockiness it's...I don't even know how to describe it...it's part self-absorption, part arrogance and part overcompensation.

c. One person I would ship them with in their own verse.
Anatole. They're actually ridiculously alike.

d. One crossover ship for them I think would be neat.
I'm pretty awful at cross-overs in general. I bet Vladimir Lensky would find her charming though.

e. One crossover universe for them I think would be even neater.
I'm pretty bad with corssovers, and I'm afraid Natasha would be hopelessly lost in anything modern day lol.

f. Their ship from hell.
Her with Dolokhov. She can't stand him. It would be his ship from hell too lol.

g. Their song.
"Call Me Maybe" - Carly Jespen

h. The title of their biography or autobiography.
"The Virtues of Motherhood."
By the time Natasha decides to write her autobiography, she had really quite forgotten a lot of her youth. Sometimes, some wistful memory will come to her when she hears a tune popular from before the war. But she has dedicated mos of her life to her children, so she writes what she knows. Really, her married life has been far calmer than her maidenhood after all. (Sometimes, she wonders what would have happened if she had not talked Pierre out of hanging out with the Decembrists. But it's unpleasant thought, so she doesn't dwell on it.)

i. The last bad dream they had.
She never married. In fact, she is all alone - much like Sonya - with no husband and no children. The shame of her passionate romance with Anatole Kuragin still hands over her and no one will touch her. One moment, people are staring and pointing at her, the next she is all alone in an empty ballroom, in an old dress that once used to be snow white. The walls are charred by the Moscow fire of 1812. The war is over, but no one is coming back.

j. How they're gonna shuffle off the mortal coil, if they haven't already.
Just old age, a heart attack or something of the sort. Two of her daughters were visiting. Pierre has been dead for a few years. She had felt she might die some time soon in the couple of preceding weeks. It was time after all. Her purpose had been fulfilled long ago.

(Sorry for the late response, I was away on vacation.)

a. My favorite thing about that character.
Bella is incredibly passionate. I love that sort of thing in a character.

b. My least favorite thing about that character.
Unfortunately, "passionate," at least in post-Azkaban Bella, takes on a psychotic turn.

c. One person I would ship them with in their own verse.
Antonin Dolohov. Tony/Bella is my HP het OTP. It's all very headcanon reliant of course, but it is what it is.

d. One crossover ship for them I think would be neat.
Maybe Bella/Morgana from BBC Merlin?

e. One crossover universe for them I think would be even neater.
Unfortunately, cross-overs are not something I'm good at...

f. Their ship from hell.
Oh I'm sure Bella would hate to be paired off with a muggle-born. Unless it was some twisted D/s thing or something...

g. Their song.
I think We Are the Fallen songs would fit a young Bella decently well. I like the almost-emo-almost-goth alternative rock for her. It would certainly match her wardrobe.

h. The title of their biography or autobiography.
If anyone was ever to pen anything close to a sympathetic biography of Bellatrix is would be called "Valkyrie."

i. The last bad dream they had.
The Dark Lord dead, killed by The Boy Who Lived and the wizarding world consumed by the muggles and muggle-borns, all of it's cultural riches squandered away. Bella's dreams wee always link to her most pressing and real fears.

j. How they're gonna shuffle off the mortal coil, if they haven't already.
Belletrix dies in battle in canon, which, honestly, isn't a bad way to go, all things considered.
