Love it! Good job sticking with the canon!

Author's Response: Thank you! I wish I could have avoided sending Sirius through the veil, but I couldn't, and I hope you think I do a great job with that part of canon!

Chapter: In Sirius' Shadow

That's so sad! Poor Cami...will she ever realize he won't be coming back?


Author's Response: Is it wrong for a writer to leave a character in limbo, hoping, until the writer she's basing her stories off of publishes the book that will decide once and for all if Sirius comes back?

If it's wrong, like the song says, I don't want to be right!

Chapter: Veiled Shadow

OK from the respnse u gave me, u r under the impression that i'm going 2 some high-tech place, but NO, i'm going to the way, i'm indian and i enjoyed the desi bits u slipped in...moony 101's review made me laugh it was so incoherent
avada kedavra

Author's Response: Thanks for liking the "desi bits" ! ^_^ I have a reviewer who has R&R'd while staying with relatives in India, so I'm sad if your school won't allow you access. That doesn't seem right! :( I've been wonky, so I couldn't write the super-long wrap everything up last chapter, so this week is really the second to the last. I hope you're still somewhere with internet on June 8th! :)

Well i read your response 2 my review and i'm happy you cared enough to reply! *is flattered* but could you please post the next chap quickly cus i'm going 2 a boarding school in june and no idea if i'll catch your next story...please...

Author's Response: Hey, if a reader cares enough to review, the least a writer can do is thank them in a reply! The last chapter of this story should post Friday, June 1st, mod willing, :) , so you should be set, although I hope you'll get online at school sometime (maybe after OotP comes out in theaters and jogs your memory, :D) and catch the next story!

Chapter: Veiled Shadow

Ok exactly what did Tonks get hit with must have been some nasty stuff (that B- Bellatrix) to send her off into that whoper of a dream it out does all her others- poor tonks

Author's Response: She got hit with a Petrificus Totalus and then a stone bench or three, (Ouch!) In earlier chapters, when she was learning and then using lucid dreaming/controlling dreams to be with Remus, I got the idea to have her 'run away' from the truth into fantasy, until she came to terms with it. Sigh.

Chapter: Shadow of Christmas

I love the banter between Tonks and Moody.......your characterization of Moody is spot on!! I also really like the blossoming friendship between Ginny and Tonks......I can totally see them being friends!

I really enjoyed reading Tonks and Sirius reviving a "non-scandelous" Black family tradition:-) I love that light-hearted Sirius..*sigh*

I ADORED the Christmas morning gift exchange between Tonks and Remus!! You just make me love that couple more and more:-)

You know, I was REALLY surprised when Jo revealed that Tonks is a Hufflepuff......I always thought of her as a Ravenclaw.

Fabulous chapter! I can't wait to catch up with the other chaps!

Author's Response: Light-hearted Sirius shows why he was so popular. He wasn't just gorgeous, he was fun to be with. I'm sure Harry got to spend a few light moments with him, but not enough.

I really like Moody. He's gruff and yet is an old softie at heart. Tonks is a softie, too, so Hufflepuff at least fits her "anything for love" outlook, the way Slytherin would not have, so I'm counting my blessings and sticking to my characterization, just tweaking it to make her a non-stereotypical Hufflepuff now, heh.

Chapter: Veiled Shadow

I really like this story, and I've been waiting for this chapter to come, sadly... you wrote it beautifully - everyone in white, the children dressing as angels - it was lovely

Author's Response: I'm so happy you liked the dream! I tried to portray that subconsciously Tonks knew--Bellatrix said she was going to kill Sirius, the other voice was "hoarse with tears"--so she fled from reality into the fantasy of what she wished would be the future, but the truth followed, until she had to accept it, sadly.

i must confess i cried too, kerry. i've toppled slian martreb off the pedestal of best author and given you the post, since SM is a slow updater. i swear i think she's dead or something.

Author's Response: I'm sure SM has exams or other issues that have interfered with her writing. I'm a bit obsessive, writing every day. :) I'll happily give her the best Slash author crown, since I like my Remus straight and with Tonks for who she is, not who she's related to! R/T is my OTP all the way. :)

Chapter: Veiled Shadow

Very interesting!

Author's Response: Do you mean the way Tonks found out about Sirius? I wanted it to be memorable and unique, so when I researched lucid dreaming for an earlier chapter, it clicked that it would be the perfect way for her to first deny, then eventually accept Sirius' loss.

Chapter: Veiled Shadow

So sad! I liked that Tonks has a dream b/c she can't comprehend the truth. *sigh* I'll miss your version of Sirius more then others.

Author's Response: Tonks knew Bellatrix was determined to kill Sirius, so she retreated away from knowledge of his death into fantasy, but in the end she had to come to terms with it.

Thank you for missing Sirius, but if you like my characterization of him, you might love my Marauder Era story Semi Charmed Life. He's the same flawed, complex, lovable character, but with less bitterness and Marauder fun added. :)

Chapter: Veiled Shadow

I always thought of filch as charon, rather than a gondolier, forever stuck in the hallway swamp...
and I'm loving the occlumency lessons...

I seriously thought that that dream thing was like a premonition to the future, where sirius would come back and have a happy family. and then tonks was at grimmauld place (?) I don't understand how she got there, and it was obvious you were going canon. you always do anyway (a good thing!) though defiinitly sad. I think the reason sirius's death is so sad for me is that it is kind of an accident, falling through an archway. I can imagine myself doing the same thing.

actually, if that was the door the Order was guarding, did they know the properties of the veil? did sirius know beforehand?

Author's Response: Since he was taking them to classes instead of the underworld, and you know he was muttering all the way, I went with gondolier. He didn't get stuck pulling that duty forever, sadly, since Flickwick eventually reduced the swamp to a display behind a rope, like the Restricted Section. :)

It was just a dream. When Tonks learned about controlling dreams/lucid dreaming to be with Remus, it gave me the idea to have her learn about Sirius that way, to have her dream of what she wanted to be and end facing the truth.

Absolutely it's worse that he fell through an archway because you think 'hey, he wasn't dead, he could come back' even while you know in your heart that Jo won't bring him back.

The door led to a corridor with all the other doors/rooms off of it. The Order knew they were guarding the prophecy, but I doubt many (if any) of them knew about the veil beforehand, although I could see Remus asking about it immediately afterwards!

oh my gosh. hold on a moment while i stop crying! it was so good, but so sad, poor Sirius!! you did really good with this chapter, but i want more!!

Author's Response: The next chapter is the last, wrap this story up and leave you wanting the next one, :), so there will definitely be more of Tonks and Remus dealing with Sirius' loss and what that means to them and others. I appreciate you having a sensitive soul to cry. Sirius is definitely worthy of tears.

Liked the diversity of the chapter. from heartbreaker! And for the record, I look like I'm about to puke when i wear yellow.

Author's Response: I had someone on another site say that she wouldn't have signed the petition because pink and black "are so eighties" but Tonks went to Hogwarts in the eighties, LOL. Weird Sisters and Duran Duran. Rock on. :D
