Good portrayal of Petershowing all his mixed emotions.
What I might question is the regret at the end. If he truly regretted it, I think he would have actually said he was sorry at the shrieking shack in POA but he never did. He denies and denies and then says pity me.
In my mind regret means that if he had to do it over again he would have chosen a different path. I don't think Peter has changed nor does he want to. He wants things to be different but is unwilling to take the necessary steps.
Author's Response: Regret is in the eye of the beholder. It's much easier to say you regret something to yourself..then go out and openly admit your failures to others. Peter was afraid of the marauders. He's one of those people who will say what needs to be said to get on someone's good side. I don't know, I didn't write him as a character, that's just my take on him. I know that sometimes I regret things but won't tell anyone. But that's just me being stubborn, lol. Thanks for your review!
*Sob* that was......really sad. I thought that you did a good job wrighting this, I alwes thought that Wormtail would have felt some remorse for what he did. Very good one shot.
That was so sad! It made me want to cry! Whaaaaaa! ........sorry. When you really think about it, all the Marauders lead such sad little lives. Look at Sirius! Look what happened to him! Stupid Pettigrew! I'm usually not one to use the word "stupid", but I can't seem to help myself at the moment. I'm sure you understand what I mean.
Wow ------ THat was really good: very strong and emotional, putting a completely new light of Wormtail and showing him up even more for the cowarding traito that he is by running away like that at the end. I particularily like this paragraph for some reason: 'Then I saw it. That green flash that shone through the upstairs window followed by Lily’s screams and I knew that James was gone. All those years of great times were finally over and would be no more. I had killed one of my best friends, what was wrong with me?' It was really emotional and stung me at the thought. I really like your writing it has great potential. I give you a good, round, 10. Luv, Ermine
Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked this and reviewed! Yes, i wanted to put Peter in a new light, and this seemed the most fitting way to do so. The fact that you found it emotional, and that you quoted that paragraph makes me really happy, lol! The main thing i was going for in this fic was emotion, so thanks! I'm also quite ecstatic that you think my writing has potentiol, thanks for the 10, my dear! Hugs.
