If only they had seen that Wormy's realy personality was coming out. That he was really a coward and didn't want to fight anyone unless it was to defend himself. Then they wouldn't have trusted him as Secret Keeper and Voldy wouldn't have attacked, etc. But then there wouldn't have been a Harry Potter series and I wouldn't be reading stories about some of the characters, etc.
Very good chapter. That evil has no limits is reinforced. Bravery and the cost of being brave and doing the right thing.
I'd guess Remus days of employment with Peter might be limited if Peter can find another employee. And I'm sure the DE's would be happy to have another spy among the good guys.
James, of course, reacted exactly as Lily knew he would. It's going to be fun to hear Sirius and Remus tease him about fainting.
That's twice they've defied Voldy. Can't remember what time of year Sybil does the interview and prophecy. They have to defy Voldy one more time before then. Exciting times ahead.

Author's Response: If only they'd seen all that, unfortunately they won't until it's too late. Remus actually won't be fired. Peter's a dirty coward, but he isn't stupid. He knows the hell he would get if he fired Remus. You'll actually see an appearance from the Death Eaters with Peter at the beginning of chapter 85. Sirius and Remus actually haven't teased him... I think it's something James chooses not to share. I don't think it says when Sybill makes the prediction. I looked in OOTP and Dumbledore didn't specify. It's going to be soon though. Thanks for reading!

thats twice they defied the dark lord. good chapter peter's really sliding down the slope to death eater dom, can't wait for the next one.

Author's Response: Yep, that's their second defiance. Their third one will be coming soon, chapter eighty five, I believe. Peter's sliding even further down, it's not going to be long now before he finally becomes a Death Eater. Thanks for reading!

Awww, nothing like a bit of well-placed fluff to make the heart grow fond of a character. Sirius's words were very in character, IMO, and quite bittersweet, considering that we know how their lives turn out. I thought it was very interesting that the Dursleys showed up, though they most like would not, had the wedding not been in Muggle style.

All in all, the emotions were believable, real, and I'm feeling in a particularly fluffy, cloud 9 mood right now, so kudos for that!

Looking forward to 82!

Author's Response: Yeah, there had to be some nice fluff to balance out what's been happening. That was what I tried to do with Sirius's speech - since we know what happens, but they don't. The Dursleys definitely wouldn't have shown up if it wasn't Muggle style. Well, Petunia may have but Vernon wouldn't. Yay for cloud 9 moods! Chapter 82 may be up today, but I'm not sure. Thanks for reading!

Great chapter.
I've been following this story for months now. Sorry for the late review, but this is an amazing take on the marauders era. In fact, this story should be considered for a TV show based on the marauders era. A kind of a Harry Potter spin off (Now I'm reaching).
Every time anyone mentioned the first war during the Harry Potter series I always realized how much the people suffered and how great was their sacrifice. This story really sheds a light on that aspect.
What kind of a life James and Lily wanted. Molly's brothers Fabien and Gideon.
Sirius & Remus's life and most importantly Peter's fall.
Excellent Story. Just one of those you never want to end.
Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: I was actually inspired by a Marauder's fic I read on here 'Between Now and Then' (I highly recommend it), it didn't cover all the years, but it was so amazing it just made me want to write a fic. Wow, now that would be amazing, but would never happen unfortunately... It's really true how much they must have suffered, it has to be like any war in real life. I really wanted to show everyone's different sides in this story - the lives they all wanted and the lives they never got because of the war. Oooh I want it to end... only because I've been writing it for almost three years! Thanks for reading!

Aww:) I have been waiting for this chapter! I LOVE the speech Sirius ended up giving, it was an amazing chapter. Great job!! :D

Author's Response: And it only took 80 chapters to get there! This was such a hard chapter to write, so I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for reading!

I loved this chapter!!! Sirius' speech was awesome!

Author's Response: That speech took me a while, so I felt Sirius's pain! Glad you liked it! Thanks for reading!

Excellent chapter, But it would have been nice if Sirius had actually listened to his brother...Cannot wait for the next update :-)

Author's Response: Well, if Sirius had listened we wouldn't have Harry Potter... :) Thanks for reading!

Even though I know what happened to Regulus and all that, I still can't help but wish that he could have lived, at least for the chance to life the life he had tried to redeem. I also like the fact that Orion Black actually sought out Sirius, but secretly, I think he didn't just want to ask about Regulus...if Sirius had let him finish, perhaps Orion may have extended an olive branch to their Black sheep (horrid pun, lol).

Cheers for yet another excellent installment, and as usual, looking forward to the next.

Author's Response: I wish he'd gotten that chance too, but Regulus had to pay the ultimate price for righting what he did wrong. Orion's main priority was Sirius, but if their conversation had gotten any further there may have been discussion over Sirius's running away. Thanks for reading!

I always wondered how Sirius reacted to Regulus' death and the way you wrote it, i think was how Im always going to think of it now. It was perfectly characterized, for everyone, I liked how you brought in Sirius' dad too, it made it more emotional I think. Anyways, as always great job!!

Author's Response: I wondered too and that was the first reaction I could think of - he was furious, but upset as well. Sirius speaks so callously of his family in OOTP, but I think he had hope for Regulus. I really wanted to see how Sirius would react to his dad so I brought him in for this (and I missed writing him!) Thanks for reading!

Can't blame Sirius for his attitude or for the way he dealt with his brother and father. It's sad, but unfortunately the world seems to work that way more than not. Sirius will never forgive himself for not listening to Regulas. And if he had Dumbledore would have known about the Horcruxes and maybe found a way to get rid of Voldy before he killed James and Lily and Harry would have had a very different life. As previously stated, life just doesn't work that way either in fiction or real world.

Author's Response: Now that you point all those things out, if in canon Regulus had gone to see Sirius, and Sirius listened to him, so many things would have been different. But no one can ever predict anything being the cause of so many things. And Sirius acts on his emotions and his first ones were to be mad. Thanks for reading!

Poor Regulus, AND poor Sirius, nice job on the chapter, as always =)

Author's Response: I know :( so sad for the both of them. Thanks for reading!

Wow, that went really well, Petunia and Vernon are def. not my favorite characters! Great chapter though.

Author's Response: Yeah, they're not my favorites either. They need attitude adjustments. Thanks for reading!

i can't even begin to tell you how much i love this story! you've got all the character's personalities spot on!

Author's Response: Thanks, glad you like it!!

Yea for James and Lily. Petunia and Vernon could do with numerous lessons on manners, curtesy and family.

Author's Response: They really could. The older Dudley would be able to teach them that, sadly enough. Thanks for reading!

Aww:) I thought it was cute:D Even though Vernon and Petunia just need to get some sort of help;) I loved how the chapter helped lift moral from the last one, great job!!

Author's Response: Vernon and Petunia really do need help, unfortunately they'll never get it so they get to stay the grumpy people they are! It was a bit of a morale booster, I think they all needed it. But the morale gets sucked back down soon enough... Thanks for reading!

What an awkward exchange between our happy couple and the Dursleys. We always knew they were horrid people, but acting like that is simply the limit.

Well written, looking forward to the next chapter, as always.

Author's Response: Yeah it was pretty awkward, but it had to be done. Lily just wouldn't be Lily if she didn't go ask (or yell, really) Petunia to come to the wedding. They are horrible, I agree. Thanks for reading!
