This. Was. Brilliant. Brilliant!! I especially loved the line about butterbeer being sweeter at the bottom of the bottle. All the characterizations, emotions, and dialogue were perfect, and the flashbacks were seamless. I also loved your focus on Sirius and Remus - they're my favorite Marauders. This was amazing!!!
Author's Response: Thank you! Remus has always been my favorite, and it's always been easy for me to 'write' Remus. I really had to 'get into' Sirius' head for this though, so I had to go back and analyze him. Now, like you, I find they're my two favorites. Thanks again for the great review!
