Er, I don't get why Teddy hasn't mentioned that he saw the funny shimmering haze around his parents before he even thought of rescuing them - in other words, he'd already done it. It suggests history wasn't changed at all, but he was following it's set course.
First off, that was incredibly mean.
Second off, wtf???? : (
That's got to be the most horrible thing I've ever heard! No court would SHOULD allow wilful execution of two people who HELPED themattain the peace they had : (
I'm crossing my fingers and hoping your love of loony loopy Lupin will allow for a law-bashing reprieve :D
Either that or Harry will kill everyone in the room :D
Me need update!
NO FRIKKIN' WAY!!!!!!!! WHAT IS WITH THE CLIFFHANGER????? SO NOT FAIR!!!!!
No seriously, IS THE WIZENGAMOT FRIGGIN NUTS???? You guys are arguing the case all wrong!!! You should say the Lupins were MEANT to be back here, and that this IS history, and that nothing is changed 'coz this IS how everything is meant to be. Cos that's how it is!!!!!! SO UNFAIR!!!! Tell that @#$%^&*#%# Aloysius Sproule that if they are sent BACK, it will be a perversion of history!!!!!
Wow, this story is good. You are a really good writer and its soo suspensful. Update soon, please!
Ok, now that I've calmed down....please don't make them die :( I'm almost crying, and I know fir sure if you do kill them, I'll bawl, I bawled when we lost them the first time, but again, I couldn't handle it....Aww, ok, that said, this is by far the best fanfic I've ever read! Your are awesome.
ARGHHH!!! nooooo!!! poor remus and tonks. *sniff* update sooooonn!
Oh no! I can't believe this. Maybe something will happen to save them? Or they are just pretending they have to die in order to hide them better? I can't wait to find out! Great chapter by the way. I am waiting on the edge of my seat for the next one!
My first reaction was something like this: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! But now I've thought about it, it would have been rather boring if the Ministry had just said "you can live" and they did so happily ever after; and boring isn't really your style, is it? :) So I'll just try to be patient well I wait to see how you get them out of this mess. Because you will get them out of this mess, right? Won't you? Please? You're not going to let them die, correct? That would just be silly, right? Right? AHHH, I CAN'T HANDLE PATIENCE!!!!! But they just can't die, right? Please? *crosses fingers and sends a little prayer up to Merlin*
Oh no! ohnoohnoohnoohnonononoooo!
What a cliff-hanger! Agh! I sincerely hope you update soon, because otherwise I will have to chase you with a giant frozen salmon. Believe me, frozen salmon is not something you want to be bopped over the head with, so take my advice and update.
On a slightly more sane note, once again I want to compliment your writing style, you superb dialogue, and your amazing descriptive powers. I have followed this series for some time now, and your genius never ceases to amaze me.
Thank you for all the hard work and love you put into these stories.
NOOOOOOOO!!!!! They can't die! OMG! This is the best story I have read in a really long time. Update soon, please, and don't kill them! This is sooooooo sad!
PLEASE TELL ME YOU HAVE A WAY TO GET TONKS AND LUPIN OUT OF THIS??? SHOULD WE LOOSE THEM TWICE? IT WAS BAD ENOUGH THE FIRST TIME? VERY GOOD STORY, I'VE CHECKED FOR UPDATES FOR A LONG TIME.
I'm surprised to learn that this fic has moved on so far without me. I never recieved the update emails. After coming across the story again by chance, I reread the entire thing and cannot believe how perfectly all the details fit together, how past and present are accounted for, and how sick I feel that Tonks and Remus have been sentenced to death. It's so unfair, and yet I can't help agreeing that everyone will be lining up to retrieve late loved ones, but they could be kept secret, don't tell me the ministry of magic haven't got some form of identity protection programme at their disposal. And my heart almost broke when Dennis and Molly had hopes for Colin and Fred being returned to them. I've loved all the little jokes and dramaz between worries, this whole fic was extrememly well written and I can't wait for the ending, I hope they find some way to trick everyone into thinking Tonks and Remus went back to the battle, while really they moved to the south of France to retire in peace. Anyway, fantastic fic!
WHAT??????? You can not be serious. I'm going to cry, is that what you want??? They should live!!! And Teddy goes to Azkaban!!! I don't like you anymore!!! I'm crying now ar eyou happy??
NO!!! NO!!! They presented their case brilliantly - Remus and Tonks shouldn't have to die...no...oh Pallas, you just broke my heart in two...
I love this story and still love it, even though I know it's going to be heartbreaking. I'm not going to hate it just because I disagree with the plot. I think the next chapter(s) will probably be the first time that I will ever cry at a fanfiction...
Beautifully rendered! Horrifically ended! Send them back to die... What a cliffhanger! I must admit I was sitting there with my hand over my mouth, holding my breath. In Oblivious and Imperious both though, I thought for sure that Remus was done for, so I am holding out for a miraculous save by Pallas! Excellent writer, I enjoy these stories as much as Rowlings... You are an excellent author, and if you have any books published I would happily go purchase them!
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
OMG! What a way to end the chapter! =] I literally felt like I was in the court room. I can't wait for the next chapter! =]
I really love this story. It's really well written and entertaining. While reading it, it occured to me that by trying to fix the past the Wizengamot are actually risking changing it. In their current reality, Remus and Tonks never died, everybody just thought they did. It's just like when Teddy is viewing the past and sees the distortion and realizes that his saving his parents was what always had happened to them. They never died. If they send them back to be killed and they are, the reality will be that they were rescued by Teddy, sent back by the Wizengamot and then killed. What if one or both of them aren't killed? If in the present time of your story their past fate was that the were rescued by Teddy and everyone just thought they were dead, how can anyone in the Wizengamot know what will actually happen if they are sent back?
I'm sorry if what I just wrote is completely confusing. Time Travel can really give you a headache if you think about it too much!
