Chapter: A Dangerous Combination

Hey, A very good chapter, abit short though =[ I hope remus makes the right choice and tells her.
I found Moments Of Bliss about three of your updates ago and you've had me hooked, i've been checking everyday to see if you have updated. You are the reason ive joined to write this review and say well done and you deserve a medal for writing sush a good fic.

Any idea on when the updates going to be?


Author's Response: Hi, Ryan. Thank you so much for taking the time to register and leave me such a wonderful review. I'm honored. I'm so glad to know you are reading and enjoying. When you wrote that you'd been with me since about 3 updates ago, I initially thought, hey, a newbie...then I realized how long ago that actually was. >.< *dies* Honestly, I'm on the verge of putting up a warning on the first chapter telling people not to start reading until I finish, so they won't have to deal with my pathetic updating habits. Of course, I do like the encouragement when I hear from a new reader, (hint hint) so I will probably be selfish and not warn them. :*) Anyway, I checked in and found this, my 1000 review (along with going over 20,000 reads/hits). *dances* Call me silly, but I think that is sort of cool. :*) Anyway, I had been checking in periodically, and it sat at 999 for some time and I was really afraid that the 1000th would end up being one of my wonderful, but frustrated, readers telling me they were fed up with waiting. :*/ I certainly wouldn't have blamed them. So, next update? Well, it should be very soon. I came to a decision with input from my beta and decided to go ahead and post what I have finished. It is not the full chapter I had intended, but you all know how verbose I am. *blush* Yes, the chapter was well over 6500 words and not even close to finished. >.< So, I have decided that, rather than make you all wait until I included everything I wanted in it, and still have to post two separate chapters, I am going to post it as an independent one and post the rest when I finish it. (Hopefully it wonít be 2 months) <.< Of course, I had to find a place I felt was good for splitting it, so this one will be 'abit short' too, relatively speaking (just over 5000 words). On the bright side, I'm a good 1500 words into the next chapter already. *Yay me* So anyway, look for a chapter within the next few days to a week at most, barring unforeseen problems. I hope you enjoy it when it is up. Thanks again for reviewing. Your prize for being the 1000th reviewer is this seriously rambling reply. :*) lol *shutting up now*

I like your scenerio. Peter would decide to become a rat permanently and get eaten by Padfoot and friend on one of the romps in the forest.

Author's Response: LOL That works for me! :D

I enjoyed it, waiting for more though :). I want to point out something I noticed about the fans opinions on Remus. I'm a 18 year old male, have many friends that are male so believe me when I tell you Remus isn't even really acting normal. He is a saint compared to most people in the women department. So....if hes wasted.....yea...cmon now that shouldn't "destroy your image of him" or anything people aren't the same drunk! By the way thanks once more for writing and keeping all of us entertained, you're the best.

Author's Response: Hm....*wonders if Lordakechi has read rough draft of the next chapter* <.< *snickers* You know, I have tried to get male betas twice now, to help me keep the boys real, but alas, no luck. :( I will count on you to let me know when I get too far off base. ;) I think we have an ideal in our heads that we know no one can really live up to, and that's okay. But when even our fictional perfect men don't live up to it, it is really frustrating. lol You are very welcome. Thank you, and I'll try not to keep you waiting too much longer.

Author's Response: Thank you, missacharae. I'm happy to know you are enjoying it. Ack...killing you? Oh dear, I am working slowly but steadily on the next chapter. I'll try not to take too much longer. :) And Yay! for pounding hearts. I love to hear that. Thank you so much for reviewing.

Chapter: Almost Perfect

Wow. Prefectish. There's a new one. I love it! I actually started reading your fic in 2007 and I am now rereading it since I saw that you had a new chapter up. I love your portrayal of all the marauders but it makes me wonder why Peter would eventually turn on James and Lily if all of them were so close. I aways thought as Peter being of a tag-a-long and not being so central. Anyhoo, I love your fic. Keep on writing! Don't be a deserter like some of the other fan authors! Keep on keepin' on!


Author's Response: Thank you, S_P. I'm really glad you came back to the story--after so long. *dies of shame* I'm happy you enjoy my take on the characters. Part of my hope is to explore possible explanations for Peter turning, because I am convinced he was a true Marauder or James and Sirius would never have trusted him to be the secret keeper. I hope I can make it somewhat plausible. Donít worry about me deserting. I have no intention to. I just go MIA for a few weeks at a time. ;*) Thank you for letting me know you are reading and enjoying the story.

I want to be Siruse when I grow up. My plan, however, is to never grow up. And since I'm over 50 it looks like my plan is working, lol

Are we related by any chance?

Author's Response: If we are, it is distantly. I don't have any relatives in New England, unfortunately. Otherwise I'd already have taken advantage of them and seen the turning leaves in the Autumn. ;)

We have a very similar phobia. A co-worker thought it would be funny to toss a picture of a cobra on my desk. I screamed loud enough to disturb a meeting two offices away.

Author's Response: LMAO That sounds just like me. I could tell a few stories on myself, but then it might give me away if someone I know read it and recognized my insanity. <.< I HATE SNAKES!!

I'm always ready for coffee, and New England is such a fun place in the winter.

Author's Response: :) Burrrrr.....I can not handle the cold, but I dream of visiting New England in the Autumn....It is one of the last parts of the country I haven't seen (Still need to see New England, Washington State, and Alaska). And it has always been top of my list of places I want to see, even since I was a little girl. I don't know why I still haven't. >.< Someday....

Chapter: A Dangerous Combination

Okay, so.

I read the chapter and for the first time in a long time I wasn't sure. But I wasn't sure about what I wasn't sure about. Or something. Anyway, there was someting I didn't like about the chapter but I didn't know what. So I sat back and thought for a while, and then went and re-read it. And then I realised: I didn't like cad!Remus.
cad!Remus makes me sad. I think i've built him up too much in my head and he's so nice and gentlemanly there that I sometimes forget that of course he's a teenage boy. A drunk teenage boy at that. And OF COURSE he's going to behave a little crude sometimes - he's a marauder. He's got mischief in his blood. And I sometimes forget just how teenage boys behave. Pft.
And you had me worried for a bit, I thought he was going to have sex with her, and she'd let him even though she didn't want to. I was literally chewing my fingers off. (Well, nails but psh, difference?)

Although, Remus did redeem himself at the end. He was sorry, so. AND SHE LOVES HIM. Ahhhhhh I can't wait!

I loved your writing, as always, but yeah, less cad next time. ;)

p.s i'm really nervous for when he tells her he's werewolf!Remus. Please don't make her hate him. Pretty please.

Author's Response: :( I hate that you did not enjoy the chapter. This is one of the reviews I have dreaded for so long. It is my own fault, because I do realize that I have written him as nearly perfect up to now. (Because he is nearly perfect in my mind, too.) I almost think when this part of the plotline came into mind, it might have been that I subconsciously realized I needed to make him do something disappointing to remind myself that no one is perfect. Please don't let this make you feel less for him, because I assure you, he feels worse about it than any of us. Trust me. I've just seen him and he is beating himself up pretty badly. I don't think you need to worry about Cad Remus anytime soon. ;) And that's the last spoiler I'll give, so I can't comment on your p.s. <.< MUWAHAHAHA p.s. I'm glad you still enjoyed the way I wrote it, even if you didn't like what I wrote. Thank you for that. :)

Chapter: Happy Birthday, Remus

Another good chapter. I like the way you are bringing about the James & Lily relationship. I can picture them starting to like each other slowly, or rather Lily starting to like James who has been crazy about her for years.

Author's Response: Thank you. I have to admit, I'm a little insecure about Lily/James. I would have probably left them out all together, if I had thought I could get away with it. ;*) It's a little awkward to have them go from animosity to true love, so I'm thrilled to know you like it.

Chapter: Friends Like These (Part Two)

I absolutely loved this chapter. Having the Marauder's as friends would be wonderful, slightly obnoxious at times and definitely dangerous at times, but really wonderful.

Author's Response: :-D I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I absolutely agree with everything about the Marauders. That is why I fell in love with them. It is such a wonderful friendship. While it lasts.... :(

Chapter: Shining Light in the Growing Darkness

I really hate Voldemort! Evil is too tame for him. I'm wth Lindi on why such bad stuff has to happen when good stuff is just starting to happen. Shades of my spouse dying before our first anniversary I think. I'm still afraid something bad is going to happen to Lindi, but I know it won't be because Remus didn't try and protect her.

Author's Response: I'm so sorry for your loss. Life can be so cruel. Sometimes, I think I would like to just forego all attempt at realism and make everything work out perfectly in the story, just because I have total control, unlike real life. James and Lily live happily ever after with Harry and his three siblings; Remus is cured and lives happily ever after with Lindi and their five kids who are spoiled ever so slightly by Rena and Richard; Sirius can travel the world on his motorcycle, then finally marries the woman of his dreams in his early thirties, after he's finally grown up a bit. They have three beautiful grey eyed children and a big dog, for Padfoot to go on runs in the forest with...Peter...*struggles to think of a lovely ending for Peter the rat*...*Loves happy endings, even if they are far fetched* *sigh*

Chapter: Almost Perfect

You can't possibly be serious that people have a problem with Sirus!. He has always been portrayed as a ladies man in Everything I have read about him. First, he was still only 16 and at this point in his life would have no interest in sticking with one girl, like most 16 yr olds. Second, anyone who would give you a hard time should remember that this is fiction, and magic fiction at that, and life is certainly going to be different in the magic world.

Author's Response: LOL I don't know if any of my readers actually do. (It has been so long, I can't remember if I've actually been yelled at in reviews. *old brain*) It is more from reading the forums that I worry that they might. I know what you mean about Sirius being a ladies man in everything...Not that I read much. I don't read Marauder Era since starting MoB because I don't want to mix my thoughts/plans/characterizations up, but on the forums, people are always talking about it being this huge cliche', blah blah... Meh, this is the way I have always seen him (and apparently many others who write him do too. ;)). Thanks for the affirmation. :)

Chapter: No Funny Business-part two

Another great chapter. I definitely agree with Remus, Lucius Malfoy is dangerous and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. He probably did put Avery up to propositioning Lindi and punished him for failing. This is almost scarier than the original war. I do like the still growing relationship between Remus and Lindi.

Author's Response: Thank you. I do not like Lucius Malfoy. Basically, he makes my skin crawl. He is not a nice man. Just because he appeared to possibly care about his own family doesn't change that for me at all. *hopes Lucius had a long time in Azkaban to reflect on his wickedness* Oooo, Iím glad you think it is scary. :)

Chapter: No Funny Business

Good informative chapter. Voldemort's and gang are showing their hand more, the Ministry is at least pretending to be doing something abut it, and I think Lily and James are going to start thinking about going out. According to canon they started dating in 7th year, so this would be the time they would start leading up to it.

Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, things are starting to heat up, on all fronts, so to speak. ;)
