WOW.....*sobs whil heart breaks* WOW......the thoughts, the way he described little Harry, EVERYTHING....this is a GREAT story. I've added the story to my favorites.
Author's Response: Aww, thanks, angel! :D
Remus is perfect! You've written him just the way I imagine he would have felt. I really love how he blames it on fate, but then can't really accept that answer. I don't think it's very like Remus to have forgotten Peter, though. I got the impression that friends were everything to him (because he had so few I guess) and he would never think more of one than of the others. Also, I don't think Sirius' betrayal would hav been in the news. After all, in PoA, Madam Rosmerta didn't know about it...
It's especially great how he feels that no one is there for him - but doesn't seem selfish at all, when he thinks it. The last marauder... or so he thinks... Anyway... you did a great job of portraying Remus' feelings in this short one-shot!
Author's Response: Thanks Valentinia, for the nice little review! Remus hasn't really 'forgotten' Peter, he just is so worried about James/Sirius/Harry/Lily that he doesn't have time to think a lot on Peter, besides he doesn't really ignore Peter; he does spare him some thought. Regarding Sirius' betrayal, it's possible it couldn't have been in the news, but also, Madam Rosmerta could have forgotten about it, it's been thirteen years after all. Anyway, thanks for the superb review!
I loved this story; it is truly one of the best in this genre. What I like about it is the style. Remus was thinking just like any other human being would if they thought they'd been betrayed. You could really feel his pain and sorrow. You got the feelings down perfectly, and I feel that was really important for a story of this nature. Great job, Preethi, dear. I wish I could give it more than 10 points!
Author's Response: Ooh, *blushes* Thank you for your comments and thanks a million for taking the time to review Anna, dear.
That was so sad and beautiful. I think that's exactly what Remus would have thought and felt. Excellent character study, and.. great job, Preethi!!
Author's Response: Oh, thanks for your comments BL. They mean a lot to me. *huggles*
That's really nice! You managed to write Lupin so that he was bitter and lost without making him seem self-centered. Its hard to write any character without making them seem so, but especailly Remus. I found this through your sig, by the way. Cheers!
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! I really appreciate it!
That was so sad! Beautiful, but sad. Poor Remus! You did a wonderful job of putting us in Remus' mind. Thanks!
Author's Response: Thanks a lot for reviewing!
Hi. I think your story was beautifully written and very insightful too. I really liked the contrast between the celebrations and Lupin's dark thoughts. You managed to create some kind of an island: celebration all around and grief in the center.
Author's Response: Thanks for your review. My Beta was really helpful in contrasting the celebrations and adding detail to it.
