Poor Remus! It must be so hard to find a job. I would think that he would be one to tell a potential boss up front that he is a werewolf. But this story is very nicely done. I like the part at the end where Remus hopes that Harry likes him. Keep writing. :D

I like the way you show Remus is excited about meeting Harry again. Excellent!

Author's Response: Why thank you! I always have wondered why Harry's relationship with Remus takes a backseat to the one he has with Sirius. It's too bad really since Remus seems more the father-figure type....

I loved this story, you really kept Lupin in-character. He was such a gentleman about losing his job with Cauldronblack. I also loved the "I wish he could stay with m... Someone who appreciates him." I've always wondered how Lupin felt about Harry staying with the Dursleys. In Order of the Pheonix, he seemed so polite about it, but I've always had the notion he wished Harry could stay with him. That one line really made me smile. I also liked how Lupin didn't refer to Dumbledore as "Albus". It seemed so modest... That maybe he didn't see himself equal to Dumbledore. I'm building a favorites list, and this story will certainly be added. -MadMar

Author's Response: Hi MadMar! I'm so glad you liked my story. I've always been slightly dissatisfied with this one because it seems unfinished; I've been working on the second chapter since I published this one way back when, and I've still got only a few paragraphs. However, reviews like yours make me realize I need to get my butt in gear and just finish it. Thanks!

The thing that strikes me about this piece is that though I had realized that Remus was perpetually out of work due to his monthlies, I had never thought about the fact that getting this job would bring so much hope into his life. For the second time this week, you've opened my eyes to seeing a character in a new light. Thank you! Have you ever wondered what Remus must have experienced in the past to make him qualified for this position? Hmm...bit scary, methinks. But something that somebody needs to explore.

Author's Response: That is a scary thought; I'd always just assumed he was pretty active in the OotP. Still... *shudders* Remus fascinates me almost as much as Snape, and with him I don't feel guilty for my fascination. Thanks for your comments!

What a lovely piece of writing. I think you've captured Lupin beautifully. I love that he ends with hope. And the shabby gentility is perfect. I also like his inner dialog as he looks forward to meeting Harry. I don't think most of the kids realize that the adults feel this same nervous anticipation.... Just lovely.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading, A.! I do love getting into the hearts of the big people for just the reason you mention. I'm 34 myself and always wondering, "When am I gonna grow out of this?" We hopefully learn to deal with our feelings (love, anticipation, fear, hope, etc) as we get older and sometimes to suppress them, but we still have them.

Hey, this story is really great and I agree with the guys above me that you should write another chapter. I also have this feeling that he was listening on the train and wasn't asleep. I'd like to know his point of view on the first meeting with Harry.

Author's Response: Thank you for your input! It really gives me incentive to keep writing!

Hey! That was good - and silly me didn't notice it was a one-shot, I was looking forward to more until I noticed 'Completed'! I loved the quiet gentility of Remus that you captured so well and also the insight into his ponderings about Sirius. Very good, thank you.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Sounds like I'm going to have to do something more with this story. I just thought that it was too understated to appeal to people, esp. for those who might like a bit more excitement. So thank you for the encouragement! When I add to it, I'll be sure to let you know!

Hey i really liked that, remus is one of my favourite characters. You should do another chapter with remus point of view of when he sees harry on the hogwarts express.

Author's Response: Thanks for review! And I'll think about your idea for expanding--I always have had the feeling Remus was listening that day on the train, so maybe I could do something from that angle. :)
