I smiled as I thought about James' problem of getting stag hair. Too bad he doesn't live in South Dakota--we have too many stags:) The huge buck with the ginormous rack that winters outside of Sioux Falls came to mind. That's how I see Prongs. Poor Remus got dunked twice in one day. I almost got the feeling that Sirius kind of knew something about Voldemort but didn't want to say anything to his friends. Or maybe those were just teeny twinges of guilt because he knows his family knows who Voldemort is. Great chapter. I'm glad this is such a long book. I feel I can really get into it:D

Author's Response: Wow, I didn't know there were a lot of stags in South Dakota. Where I live there really isn't a lot of wildlife (except for the family of deer my dad randomly saw when he was driving to work...) Yep, Remus got dunked twice, but it's all in good fun! Sirius doesn't know anything about Voldemort, you're right about the twinges of guilt. Yeah this is really long, I'm actually going to put the next chapter up tonight sometime. Thanks for reading!

And then it starts--they ask who is Lord Voldemort? An innocent question. I can't wait to see what happens with the Pettigrews. I mean, what happened to Peter's parents? If I were Peter's mother I'd be so embarrassed. I'm guessing they must die before too long. I chuckled at the cheering charms--I wish I knew those. They would make me very popular at work. I have to rely on the old muggle standby of pleasant conversation, telling jokes and stories, and outright laughter:P Have we seen the end of Professor Handlin? I didn't get the gobstones thing--why was Remus smelly? I know it's going to be something stupid I should know and I'm going to be embarrassed I asked, but I'm beyond shame:D Great chapter.

Author's Response: It is a pretty innocent question right now, by the end of this they wish they'd never heard the name. Mrs. Pettigrew had to have lived past the first war because they say in POA that she received the Order of Merlin and Peter's finger when they thought Sirius blew him up. Cheering Charms would be awesome if they really existed. You'll find out a little about where Professor Handlin ends up at the end of their sixth year, I believe. As for the gobstones, I think it says that in one of the books the gobstones squirt stinky liquid at you, so that was why Remus smelled. Thanks for reading!

Poor Remus. I love the full moon and watching it rise. It's so sad that Remus can never enjoy that sort of thing. I wonder why James all of a sudden decided to hex Snape. Maybe he just felt like it:) I was impressed when Sirius broke up the fight involving Regulus. At least that didn't go too bad. Birthdays are so important to young wizards. That was nice of the boys to buy Remus new robes. It wasn't nice to write on his forehead. Great chapter. Hope you have a great, fun, and safe New Year's Eve!

Author's Response: It is sad that Remus can't enjoy something as simple as that. James was just feeling particularly hex-happy and, of course, Snape is his first target. Sirius may not see eye to eye with Regulus, but he doesn't want him to get in trouble. Yeah the new robes were nice, but the writing on the forehead... Hope you had a nice New Year's Eve! Thanks for reading!

Once again another great chapter :) Peter's making me nervous, I wish the Marauder's realized what was happening to him before it was too late.
I love the ending of this chapter, poor Remus, at least they all get a happy Christmas together :)

Author's Response: Peter's only going to get stranger in the next few chapters before it all ends. There's 4 chapters left to be posted and by chapter 94, Peter will really be making you nervous. Thaks for reading!

Aw:) Thats such a nice ending:) Petunia is just annoying, I dont know what I would do if I had a sister like that, thankfully I dont;) Anyways, I know that Remus cant tell ANYONE about his mission, and its these parts that I hate what Dumbledore did to this group, however unintentional, but I cant stop myself from wishing that he ends up telling them anyway. Even though that wont happen. At least Harry gets an amazing first Christmas, great job!!:D

Author's Response: I don't think anyone would know what to do if they had a sister like her. Complain about genetics, probably. Dumbledore didn't know this would split the group apart and Remus won't tell anyone because he's too loyal to Dumbledore. Yep, Harry got that good first Christmas! Thanks for reading!

ugh i hate petunia... lily was by far a better mother than she could ever be. i seem to be saying this a lot, but poor remus! i'm glad he got a break for christmas

Author's Response: I have to agree with you. In the short time Lily was a mother, she proved herself to be better than Petunia. Thanks for reading!

The addition of the article about the cartwheeling woman was funny. I hope I can add odd little things like that when I write. Those details really make the story. I noted that Peter was repulsed by his patronus--a rat. He must have been embarrassed. I was struck once again by the loyalty of Peter's friends. They were going to sit there until he produced a patronus. And, they were sure he could do it. Great chapter.

Author's Response: I have no idea where the cartwheeling woman came from, I think I just felt like adding something stupid in there. I'm sure you can. Just remember, the little odd things are sometimes the most fun to write. I forgot Peter was originally disgusted by his Patronus, he definitely was embarassed by it. They are loyal to him and that's what makes it even worse when he stabs them all in the back. Thanks for reading!

Interesting that no one knows what the Mark in the sky is yet. They'll know soon enough. I had a flash forward when reading about Frank Longbottom--before too many years go by he and Alice will be tortured by Bellatrix and left for insane. And, where did Prof. Handlin go and who is the sub? It's amazing when you think about what the Marauders had to teach themselves about defense. Becoming Animagi and learning the Patronus Charm on their own is so advanced and they're doing it all by themselves, This just makes me want to see the final Battle all the more--when Harry defeats Voldemort. I can't even imagine what it'll be like in the theatre during that final scene. Great chapter.

Author's Response: I don't even remember when they find out what the name of the Dark Mark is... I think it's the end of their sixth year. Poor Longbottoms. They didn't deserve that. Handlin went off on some secret mission thingy and the sub. (Twikom, I believe?) will be back. The Marauders had to be really smart to teach themselves all of that. I can't wait to see the final battle either. That's going to be amazing to see in the theatre. Thanks for reading!

That was such a sad chapter - to me the marauders are truly seperated now. Peter is particularly horrible this chapter. Good work.

Author's Response: This really is when that happens, even if they aren't aware of it yet. Peter only gets worse before the story ends. Thanks for reading!

Oooohh, this was a chapter of very intense changes! First Remus going to spy on the werewolces and then Peter telling Voldemort where the Potters live (without being secret keeper) and then making the Potters up and leave because they would have been attacked otherwise. Hmm, it's too bad everything that they were familiar with had to change in an already chaotic times. Anyways, great job!! :D

Author's Response: Yep there were a lot of changes in this chapter. With Peter already telling Voldemort, I thought that this was the setup for him doing it when he does become the Secret Keeper. The difference is that once he becomes Secret Keeper, there's no way James and Lily could escape because they believed he wouldn't betray them. Thanks for reading!

Losing a loved one really sucks. The grief you endure really sucks. Remus has had more grief in his life than anyone should have to endure, and he's right about crying not helping. Sirius is right though, sometimes you just have to let go and cry. Sometimes you do it because it makes other people feel better.

Author's Response: Remus really has had more grief than any of them, but Sirius is right that crying is something he's never done and, while it won't help, it may make him feel better. Thanks for reading!

grippingg and well written! yu certainly made the young marauderz (and death eaterz) highlyyy believable. i especiallyy enjoyed the frequent argumentz between sirius and remus xD

Author's Response: Some of my favorite scenes are the arguments between Sirius and Remus, they're a lot of fun to write. Thanks for reading!

Professor Kettleburn had such a long career at Hogwarts. Wasn't he the one who retired when Harry and company started school--to spend time with his remaining limbs? I loved Remus' recording. That was very clever. These guys really get into their Christmas and birthday presents don't they. It must be strange to spend holidays at boarding school. What is Dumbledore trying to hide? Good night, hopefully I'll see you tomorrow. I've been busy having a Harry Potter movie marathon so I haven't spent much time on reading.

Author's Response: Yeah he had a looong career there. He was the professor who retired in Harry's 3rd year. He was already losing his mind when the Marauders were in his class, so it make sense for him to lose a few limbs. That was fun to write, how Remus left his own message for Sirius on the gramophone. They do get into it as kids, later on it's more of just being able to spend those days together that matters. Dumbledore is trying to hide something involving the famous Order. Ooh Harry Potter marathons are fun and a good excuse for not reading. Thanks for reading!

Awww... Such a cute chapter! I loved having a break from hearing about the wizarding war.
LOL "They could commiserate together when their wives were driving them up several walls at once"
But - can Lily read minds? She responded "and we did" to Remus' thought that Lily and James would want to spend Christmas alone together.
It's so great that everybody's so concerned about the unborn Harry. I wish there was a way to stop what we all know is going to happen... :(

Author's Response: It's fun writing those breaks from the war and, considering the heaviness of the last 8 chapters, you should enjoy them while they're there. Ha... I think that was a typo, I think it was supposed to be quotations instead of a thought. Woopsie. Err... Lily was momentarily gifted with Divination skills! I wish there was a way too, but unfortunately that's how the story ends :( Thanks for reading!

poor remus. even though we know whats coming, its hard not to hope that it will go differently this time. how far were you planning to take the story?

Author's Response: I know, I wish things would end differently for them, but that's how it goes. This story doesn't have much left. I'm working on the final chapters. Thanks for reading!

Aww:'( That was so sad. The only bright side to this that I can see is that now he has, at least some closer, and can move on. I liked the way you had Remus react to James and Lily naming Harry after his dad, I think if he was excited or anymore subdued it wouldnt have been believable, considering all of what was going on. Anyways, great job!!:)

Author's Response: Yeah Remus does have a bit of closure. Remus was happy that they named their son Harry, he really just didn't have it in his to show it. Thanks for reading!

Very, very sad. Poor Remus. Poor everyone fighting Voldy and the DE's. Had already guessed Harry was named after Remus dad. Now we know why. One door closes, another opens. Peter went to tell Voldy and friends the Potter's had their baby and it was a boy. Frank and Alice had Neville the day before. Voldy now has to decide which baby will be the threat he wants to eliminate. And we know the choice he made. Do we find out why the Lupin's were killed when they were? Something to do with articles he wrote?

Author's Response: Yep, now everyone knows exactly why Harry was named after Mr. Lupin. That's exactly where Peter went. Voldemort makes his decision pretty easily. There's really just speculation on why Voldemort decided to kill the Lupins. Thanks for reading!

That was wonderful and scary. I thought the Marauders were goners when they were discovered in the Forbidden Forest. How fortunate that they were discovered by the DADA teacher--or was it? I was just thinking--what if the DADA teacher was a Death Eater. I guess I'm having a paranoid moment. I get those every once in a while:) Did I ask you what you think Linda is in Gryffin_Duck's story? I didn't think she was a were but I'm kind of considering the vampire theory. I forgot what your stand was in this:D This was a great chapter. Very well written and brings up new questions.

Author's Response: No, they were fortunate. Handlin is far from a Death Eater, though I can see how you could think he may be. I'm considering the vampire theory as well, just because Matt seems to dislike her so much. Thanks for reading!

How sad, but I guess we knew it was coming. Do they ever figure out what was wrong with Remus' grandpa? And, how strange that they died at the same time. I was struck by how sensitive James was in accompanying Remus home. How sweet of him to bake a cake. I had to smile at that and the time he spent with Willie learning how to bake. It was also very special that James asked his father to come and help take care of Remus. I'm left thinking about how wonderful it is to have friends. Sometimes we just take them for granted. Great chapter.

Author's Response: Nope, they don't find out. Dying simultaneously is a bit of a theme in this story, not in all cases but in some. James was very sensitive to it, it shows that he is a friend first and foremost. I thought that would be a fun little thing to add - James learning how to bake with Willie. That's true that we take friends for granted sometimes, but everyone does appreciate their friends. Thanks for reading!
