Ohhhh, just fantastic. I really LOVE this story, from the first word on. It's gripping and hard to stop reading once you've started. So please, update quickly!! Can't wait to know what James is going to make Elisabeth do...

Author's Response: Thank you so much, luinrina. I'm so glad you have enjoyed it. :) Hopefully you will find out what James has up his sleeve for, er, Lindi soon. ;) The chapter is with my beta, so barring massive problems, I hope to have it posted in the near future. I will say, I'm not expecting very much free time over the next five days, AT ALL, So I make no promises. :( But edits and formatting should be doable. Wish me luck, and thank you for reviewing. :)

Just popping in to say that I'm still a fan of MoB, I'm here and reading! Nice chapter, Moony :) I, for one, have no idea how you manage to write such long chapters without wandering off of the main point. *envies* But I guess that's one reason why updates are somewhat scarce...? ;)

Author's Response: Oh, yay, Ayse! I'm so happy to *see* you. :D I'm very relieved if it seems that I am staying on point. I like to think I am, but lately, with so many RL distractions, I really feel like I'm struggling to even remember what the main point is. *blush* So I guess it is all related and why updates are scarce. :*/ I will try to get to the point in a more timely fashion, though it will probably continue to take me far too many words to do it. I just donít know how to be concise. LOL Thank you so much for letting me know you are still reading.

Personally, I think this is an excellent example of Remus's character. It shows his nervousness, intelligence, but mostly, his thankfulness for Sirius, James and Peter's company.

It also seems that Remus is reluctant to grow up, (with his lack of developing a relationship Lindi for quote some time) with which seems perfectly like him. If I was Remus, and a life of estrangement, and abuse waited for me, I would want to stay in school as long as possible, and I definitely wouldn't want to leave. Hell, if I went to Hogwarts, I wouldn't want to leave either: D

Also, when he wants to tell Lindi of his condition, it makes me feel really sorry for him, because I know exactly how he feels. Remus is an honest guy, and he greatly dislikes lying.

I like how he worries about what his friends are going to make Lindi do, and how he upholds loyalty to not only his friends, but his girlfriend, and he does it without question.

Overall, I think you did an excellent job, and I canít imagine Remuís character being written any other way Ė the only part I didnít like was the first chapter Ė I found it a bit slow, but it is really essential to show the nervousness his parents went through concerning his schooling.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, untitlednine. I am so glad that Remus' appreciation for his friends comes through. Working on the second half of Chapter 47, Friends Like These, has made me think about that so much, so thank you. I'm so thrilled that you find my portrayal of Remus believable. He is my absolute favorite character ever and I don't want to mess him up. I hope I don't! I know what you mean about the first chapter, too. Back when I first started posting, MNFF had a hit counter that authors could see how many hits their story got. Well, it was fairly obvious that many people hit the first chapter and then didn't come back. I briefly took it down, convinced it was losing me readers, but I had a few complaints from people wanting it back and I realized I was worrying too much about how many readers I had. :*( I put it back up. It is a little slow, but it has important background info in it and well...I sort of like it. :*) Anyway, I'm just glad you didn't let it keep you from continuing on with the story. Thank you so much for this lovely review. I really appreciate it.

that was a really good chapter. i can't wait to read the rest of it. and to find out what they're gonna make her do. it should be good since it obviously involves remus. update soon!

Author's Response: Thank you, iluvkrum. I'm glad you enjoyed it. So, you think it will involve Remus, eh? You don't think they aren't telling him because it will make him furious? <.< Eh, you're probably right. Probably... >.> I'll try to let you know if you are correct soon. I'm afraid RL barged in on me again this weekend and I didn't quite get it finished, but I did make some progress. I may get a chance tomorrow to work on it, so cross your fingers for me. :)

Update, Update,Update please

Author's Response: :*/ I'm so sorry, finfine. I promise I'm trying. I just don't know where the time goes. I was so sure I'd have it within a week and already...how many have passed? *dies* Don't answer that. I tell you, my life is flashing before my eyes. >.< *runs off to get a little writing finished while she can*

Honestly, I couldn't give a darn about that much action becuase I like reading about personal relationships as well. I read a lot of Jane Austen and there's not a lot of action going on...so it really doesn't bother me as long as I can watch characters and relationships develop. You learn a lot more that way than a lot of action going on because I think it distracts from the main plotlines a lot of times. ANyway, that's my opinion. I mean, everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, but it's hard for people to really make good, realistic relationships with people whether they're going for platonic, familial or romantic. Bottom line: I don't care if there's a lot of action I'm much more interested in Lindi's reaction to Remus's "furry little problem"

Author's Response: Thank you, ren_a87. I do hope that the relationships I'm trying to flesh out seem realistic. That is the whole point of this little tale. ;) I do sometimes worry that I take far too long to get to the action, whether it is a big action sequence or the first kiss, but I enjoy the building more than the payoff. I suppose I should realize that you and my readers in general would have to prefer the relationshipy part as well, or you wouldn't still be here after all this time. I certainly haven't hooked anyone with all the action! LOL I hope that you are satisfied when Lindi finds out the truth, after the long, long wait. That is assuming she does. <.<

Wow, I have just finished this story. I actually reviewed a couple of days ago, but doesn't seem to have come up.
Anyhoo this story is so well written. I love reading fics about the Marauders. And you've written Moony just like he should be. Out of the four of them he probably did have the worst time dating due to his furry little problem.
I especially like Lindi, she's not just a one dimensional character, there is actually more to her than meets the eye.
Anyway, great work, I'll be keeping a beady eye out for the next chapter. I am dying to know what James is going to do to Lindi. So hurry up!

Author's Response: Thank you for this wonderful review, Phoenix alThor. I am especially pleased that you like Lindi. :D That really gives me a kick. I'm working on the next chapter as we speak (well, taking a little break now, but...) I hope you enjoy it when I'm finished. Hurry up...LOL Have I mentioned lately that I'm a southern girl. We don't know how to hurry. LOL I will try. Thank you again. :)

Wow, I almost gave up hope on this story. I'm REALLY glad you updated, though. I hope to see the next chapter (or, rather, the rest of this chapter) soon!

Author's Response: *blush* I almost gave up on it too! I'm really glad you didn't. Thank you for sticking with me and reviewing. I really appreciate it, I Am Peeves.

Note to all who get notified of my updates. I had a terrible time getting this chapter posted because of the glitches created by the Hacker. I have learned that you probably received a ton of update notice emails. Sorry about that. The site wasn't updating the story properly, so I was surprised to find out that it was sending out the emails. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Author's Response: Thank you very much, muggler180. I hope so too. :)

what?! WHY did she stopp?! She could've won lool gosh i feel frustrated for her haha. And poor Remus I wonder what they'll do to him and Lindi... update soon!

Author's Response: :) Poor Lindi. She's a mess and she's going to have to pay for it. *Muwahahahahcoughsputter* Goodness, I'm out of practice with being evil. Not enough time with the Marauders these days to keep in practice, I guess. I need to work on that. I'll try to have an update for you soon. Thank you for reviewing, Marauder Evans.

Another good chapter! I thought it had a good amout of action even if it was just for the competitions, you can't have every chapter packed! Anyway, it is a bit cruel of you to leave Lindi's "punishment" to the next chapter! But I guess as you have it almost finished, I'll forgive you this once! Just kidding, hope it's as good as this one!

Author's Response: Thank you, ren_a87. I know what you mean about the action. I'm afraid action isn't one of my strengths, as I enjoy writing more personal interaction than anything. Still, action is necessary, unfortunately! LOL Lindi thinks it is cruel to make her wait too! I'll try to let her and you get it over with soon. I actually hope the next one is better, but I'm not particularly optimistic as it is still part of the chapter from h*** for me, but I really appreciate your kind words. Thank you for reviewing. :)

thank you
i am sweet sixteen just like lindi (i wrote a review in that chapter lol)
i think it came out when i was only fourteen, wow

Author's Response: Your quite welcome, now may I ask what on earth you were doing reading a 6th-7th year fic at fourteen, young lady? *waggles finger in very Molly Weasley fashion*

*removes Molly's apron and puts on Rita Skeeter glasses and whips out Quick Quotes Quill* So, it was your sweet sixteen. Did the little birdies get to sing "Sweet Sixteen, MoB's dear pet, Never been kissed by a little boy yet" or simply Happy Birthday? Prophet readers want to know! LOL /teasing froggie] I'm glad to know you've stuck with me all this time. We crazy's need to stick together.

that is so wierd i am exactly the same age as lindi was in that story...
i just had to do a shoutout to this old chapter

Author's Response: *gives birthday cake* :-D I hope you didn't get embarrassed like Lindi did!

I'm sorry but are you trying to subject your loyal fans to a cruel and agonizing death? We need more MOB!

Author's Response: *hides*

Okay, here's the deal. I'm having a really hard time with this one. Not because it is a particularly complex chapter or anything (that's the next one. ) <.< /teasing MoB readers] but because I keep getting interrupted when I try to write it. And now, it has taken so long, I can't seem to get into it. However, I have sent the lion's share of it (almost 10000 words worth) to Marauderswolf for a basic betaing so I could get some feedback that might help me refocus. I have been in contact with her and she's helped me do that. I'm working on it right now (well when I finish here.;) ) I hope to get the rewrite of the first half to her this weekend. The chapter is going to have to be posted in two parts due to length. Depending on how the beta goes, I may or may not post it all at once. If not, it shouldn't be a long wait between the first and second halves. Now, when I will have anything to actually post is anyone's guess, but I feel like I'm getting close. I only wish there was more substance/action/excitement in the chapter since you have been waiting so long. I hope to make up for that in the next chapter. *more shameless teasing* Okay. That probably made no sense at all, so, long story short. I'm getting close.

I am so sorry for the very long wait. :*( Thank you for your patience and encouragement. I needed it. A lot! :)

Author's Response: Oh, and Happy Birthday, froggie! I'm sorry I don't have anything for you, but I send best wishes! Hope it's been great!
