Wow. I don't even like Remus/Sirius, but this was amazing. You have Sirius down so perfectly. I read this only because I read your other story, which is also phenomenol, and I knew that the writing would be brilliant. And, I do love Remus and Sirius as individual characters, so I had to see if you could make R/S appealing to me. For the record, you did. You totally make even the kissing scenes tolerable to read. I usually get frusterated with R/S once they start kissing, because I'm such a fan of their friendship, and the sexual stuff ruins it for me, but you did it perfectly.
Oh so emotional!!!! I loved the intensity, great!!
:( are you ever coming back?
Oh. My. God. I love this story! K, I'm horrible at reviewing but I've been waiting 4 months for the next part, so I’m hoping that this might push you into writing the rest ;-). I love how you describe the boys (as much as I hate to see Peter in any story, I don’t find your Peter as annoying as usual lol). You give Remus the best lines! My favorite was:
“My God,” Remus whispered after a long, astonished silence. “I’ve stolen Pandora’s Box.”
Ah poor Remus! And the second part made me cry – you wrote Sirius so beautifully. I’ve always thought that ‘The Prank’ was very out of character for Sirius, and thus have always been disappointed in JK for not coming up with a better plotline. I know Sirius is painted as reckless in the books, but I somehow cannot believe that Remus’ best friend – someone that runs around with a fully fledged werewolf every month – is stupid or thoughtless enough to let Remus’ secret slip without knowing the consequences for both Remus and Snape. And as Remus’ best friend, he would have never put Remus in that kind of danger. Sirius had to have known that, had anything happened to Snape, the Ministry would punish Remus somehow; it’s not like the Ministry is tolerant of werewolves. Keeping Remus’ secret would have been at the top of the List of Things Marauders Should Always Do. I just don’t see Sirius putting his hatred of Snape above his love for his friends. Anyways, enough of my rant :-). Since ‘The Prank’ was revealed in the books, as a fan of Remus/Sirius, I’ve seen authors come up with a variety of ways to deal with the fallout. Some I have read have been cliché, others remarkably creative, however yours has been the most effective in conveying the raw emotion the two boys feel. As I was reading, my heart literally ached for them. Your writing is elegent in that you easily convey what is needed for the story without being overly dramatic or verbose. The last few lines give us enough tantalizing hints to keep us hooked and DEMANDING that you come back. So please come back soon with the next part because I am so totally hooked, and I’m not above begging ;-).
Wow. Wow. I cannot even big to tell you how... absolutely spot-on all your Marauders are. Especially in act I. Seriously, dude, you've got them down pat now. I am so impressed - and proud!
Obviously I'm a massive fan, and I could sing you praises all night if I had to. It's been a while since I've read anything of yours, and I definitely was going through withdrawal. This just made it a little bit easier. ; ) It really amazes me how you can really get into these characters' heads and make all their actions and emotions very real - a great feat given the category it's in, for instance. You pwn, dude. Pwn.
Wanna know my favourite line?
"Well, I accept cash and all major credit cards."
Hahahaaaaaaaaa. Remus is such a dork. *loves*
