He is a Marauder--of course he is flirtatious! She is a very interesting character, indeed.

Again, I like the insight into Remus--imagining what it would be like to hunt for a job when one is a werewolf, very cool. Very neat way to end the chapter too, with his shocked realization!

Author's Response: Aw, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Great chapter--I like it that he unnerved her slightly.

Chapter: Homes of Pessimists

Love the title of the chapter. I like how your Remus is darker and not quite so "prefect" as some others'. Sleeplessness can be torturous for some, but can inspire and ignite others, I think the latter applies to your characters. Am wondering about the references to an iceberg and the drinking water like an alcoholic....

Author's Response: I was skeptical of the title at first, I do admit, but I'm happy that I stuck with it, ultimately. I'm glad that Remus does come off as darker, because he's always been like that in my mind and I hoped that he would come off as so in my writing. Not that he's an angsty character, of course, but he has his troubles.

Thanks for the lovely review!

I think you capture the lonely feeling I always assume Remus has because of his curse, like being a bar, just wanting some company. I wonder if Isabelle will help him out, being an alchemist and such?

Author's Response: Hmm, will she? Isabelle might help him out of some things, but others remain more permanent and there's little she can do.

Thanks for taking the time to review! It's very much appreciated!

I really do like this story, and I know you like big words, but it feels like your trying to hard to put them in, instead of telling the story. They get in the way. That's just my opinion anyway. Great ideas, and great writing, but i do think that you need to use more imagery. R~7

Author's Response: I concur that I sometimes get carried away, but it's so natural for me to do it. I'll try and tone it down a bit and add more imagery as well. Otherwise, thanks for the review.

Chapter: Comfortable Silence

Oh dear. For the second time I am reduced to criticising minor things, it's dificult this constructive criticism lark. Oh well, minor: Didn't really understand what Isabelle meant by "stand up back up". I think the "like a bunch of second years" remark would fit an adult Education course, I had to think for a bit to realise what you meant, and it seemed too out of place almost. Lastly: I didn't really like her omitting werewolf twice, seemed a bit contrived. Could she just say ministry instead of -----Registry. I'd say how excellent it was, but it'd take too long.

Author's Response: Yes, it was silly of me at some points, but I have edited the chapter, and I hope it's a tad better to understand than before.

Thanks for the review!

Chapter: Poems and Apologies

Firstly I enjoyed it. You're strength (as ever) is your description of Remus' thoughts. However (as Vader said) you're physical descriptions aren't very detailed. Secondly, I'd doubt that many businesses would advertise "NO Werewolves" just seemed a bit to blatant to me, but I might be wrong. I also ummed and arred a bit over the "piece of work line" seemed slightly un-Remusish. But you're probably a better judge of Remus than I am.

Author's Response: LOL, thanks for the review! Yes, my physical descriptions need a bit of work, but I'm slowly getting there.

It comes to me as no surprise that this story ended up on the Featured list. I'd say some constructive crisitism, or *something*, but, in all honesty, I have none. Update soon!

I continue to enjoy... Think you are doing a good job developing Isabelle's character (I love her name by the way; I think a good choice of name is important). Their gathering interest in each other is portrayed well, the chapter title is very apt. Good stuff!

Author's Response: Yes, I think a good name's important as well, and I'm glad you like it! Thank you for taking the time to review. It's greatly appreciated. : )

Chapter: The Pursuit of Condolence

Wow, I just have to say, your writing is absolutely marvelous. You manage to tie your "big words" in without soudning utterly random or as though you are purposefully trying to add them in. I would only give you one criticism, and that is that several of your characters, namely Remus and Isabelle, tend to sound a bit too proper at times. I completely understand your wonderful use of advanced vocabulary in narrative writing, but when spoken by the characters, they all tend to start to sound slightly similar and pompous. Other than that, wonderful job sticking to the characters JK so diligently created, and I can only hope to become as amazing as you in my writing techniques. Perfect 10.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review! Yes, I do sometimes get a bit carried away with my vocabulary, and I'll try and harness it a bit as I move forward.

Gosh, I'm blushing. I hardly know what to say to such a kind review, except thanks again, and that it's very much appreciated!

Chapter: Meetings in Pubs

I saw Narziss' review, and wanted to tell you what a sleeze they are. I checked to see if they'd written any stories, but the person that reviewed made that account just so they could give that bad review that had no basis. It's probable that the real reviewer doesn't want to ruin their good name, so they made a new account. What a slime ball. Own up to what you want to say. Your story is great, and any real person can tell Isabelle's not a Mary Sue or self insertion. You can generally tell when one or the other, usually together, happens, and it just hasn't. I give you my compliments on making such an interesting, real-life character.

Author's Response: Thank you! It means a lot to me that you say that! Again, thanks. It's very much appreciated!

Chapter: Meetings in Pubs

Seeing Isabelle's personality comes out has been infinately interesting to me. I won't tell you who I think the boy in the picture was, but I will say I can see a connection to Lupin. I like that you've portrayed a common adult relationship. Unfortunately, a lot of times when it is sexualized like this, the gentlemen don't quite act like gentlemen. Granted, she's a handful and never refrains from speaking her mind. Sometimes that characteristic is simply ignorance. Other times it is born of hard times, when the world rolled over someone. Thus far, we can see she has some demons that contribute a lot to how she treats other people. She may be pretty, but I would describe her as....a witch with a B. That's not a MS, just to remind some drifting minds. Your plot is carrying me toward an ultimate scene, and I can feel it. I can't wait to read it when it gets here.

Author's Response: Yes, Isabelle can be quite a handful, and she has her fair share of enemies as well as acquaintances, like anyone else. Ultimately, she is quite the . . . witch with a B, but it's understandable, to an extent. I'm not sure about the excusable part though.

Thank you for the wonderful and constructive review! It's very much appreciated!
