Oh, now I am just raving on and wasting such a perfectly good review on this when I could be offering constructive critiques. Oh to hell with it! It was fabulous! Definetely worth the read.

Chapter: Death Rose

What a lovely story! It was bittersweet and very original. I like how you started it with the legend and ended it with the legend -- it creates a nice finish to the story.

There were some minor spelling and punctuation errors.

“Your such a tease,” said Sirius grabbing his Herbology book and placing it on his lap.

'Your' should be 'you're'. I'm not going to list them all and will focus, however, on the great parts of this story.

“If you pay attention, I’ll reward you later,” Remus caressed Sirius’ thigh.

This is a nice introduction into the relationship, hinting to the reader how Sirius and Remus feel about each other.
I like these kinds of sentences in stories, when the author doesn't go into explaining what happened but delves into the relationship/problem/scene immediately.

Suddenly, the rose stems stretched themselves forward and danced wildly around Remus and Sirius. One of them knocked Sirius’ wand from his hand and another one went straight for his neck. Remus moved to aid Sirius, but a branch slapped him, grabbed his feet, and tripped him down to the floor. Soon both boys were immobilized, their limbs and necks tied down. If the plant continued to tighten, they would soon choke. At least they would die together.

This was probably one of the most descriptive pieces in this one-shot and gave me a clear mental image. Although this fic was rather lacking in description, the dialogue made up for it. ;)

You have great talent, Harald! And reading your stories, you're making me like the Remus/Sirius ship -- one that I hadn't really considered reading before.

All in all, very nice job with this and congratulations on winning!

Author's Response: A review from Anna!!! *squeeee* Sorry about the spelling ang grammar mistakes, it seems none of my sories is safe lol. Remus and Sirius is my OTP, I have a very clear vision of how their relationship could've been. It's strange you think the fic lacks description, because I think this is one of my fics that has more descriptions lol. Thanks a lot for the review!

I nice start, explaining about Eldreda, then having Sirius wake up, almost as if he'd dreamed it... :-p It was a smooth transition, which isn't always easy. The description of the Marauders was good too, all in character!

I liked the paragraph where it gave a nice description of the lesson - then said (in Sirius' eyes, anyway!) how it was "almost bearable"! I liked how they acted before they got together, how Sirius was always the upfront one, Remus more hesitant. It would have been nice to see James and Peter's reactions to it though, as obviously by that stage they were alright with it, but it must have been a bit of a shock to start? Or was it more like Harry, with Ron and Hermione (sorry, couldn't resist!), just waiting for them to get together, as everyone else knew it was supposed to happen but them. ...Until it happened, of course!

I really liked James' P.S. on the note, that made me laugh! I also liked how you noted that, "When he set his mind on something nothing could stop Sirius." It seems really true to what we know of his character. Sirius in general seemed really in character, willing to take the risk to get the rose for Remus, but being confident that he could pull it off.

Whoa, I was really shocked when the roses attacked! (Okay, I've just seen how absurd that looked - 'When Roses Attacked - Revenge of the Roses' - coming soon to a cinema near you!) I loved the twist at the end! Fabulous! Well done!

Author's Response: I haven't thought of Sirius' dreaming about Eldreda, it's a really nice thought. Thanks, for bringing that up. I'm so relieved their in character it was my first time writing the marauders. I think that's my favorite part of the fic, when they kiss for the first time. Peter's reaction would've been shock I think, but James I think would've seen it coming since he was so close to Sirius. I didn't write it in because it wasn't the porpouse of this fic, but I would love to write about it *plot bunny*. Watch out "The Invasion of the roses coming to a cinema near you!" or "Death Rose; the resurection. Thanks so much for another lovely review! *huggles oppungo*

Pretty had me worried for a minute! The story was a nice touch, too. It was a little predictable, but otherwise good.

Author's Response: Well, I'm a little predictable myself too. When you say the story you're refering to Eldreda's story, am I correct? If that's the case I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for the review!
