This is great! I love listening to Muse while reading Harry Potter so basing a fic around one of their songs is genius.

Author's Response: Thanks! And yes, Muse is very good for writing inspiration.

Very well written, good characterizations, and a new twist on the question of courage. Given LV's track record, and the fact that only a Dumbledore could face him down and live to tell the tale, anyone who signed on to fight him WAS likely to die. The question then becomes is it a cause worth dying for? Your story asked and, in a believable way, answered that question.

Author's Response: Wow, thank you! Yeah, I've always wondered myself whether there was a cause worth dying for, and I suppose that if you follow Sirius's logic, there is. I'm glad you liked it. Thanks again for the wonderful review. =)

I really love this story. Its amazing. I was going to make a story out of this song but then I saw this and I wanted t read it. I'm glad I did because this is better than mine would ever be. I like the bond with Sirius and Remus that you have in this. It's really good. The song fits perfectly with the story.

Author's Response: Aww, thank you so much! =) I really encourage you to write your own fic, though. I'm sure it will be brilliant -- you can never go wrong with Muse!

Gee, you seem to have given me a tie. Which one to like best? The best thing here though was the turned table characterisation you used. People don't often write Remus complete without the some pathetic, pitiful aspects, but yours for a change was different. The vulnerability builds slowly, the reader has time to associate with it and thus empathize with it and then it sort of eases off him - you show that Sirius helps him do that. While this a often used aspect in his characterisation, I think you did a nice job at it. Peter was wow. L/J worked without working too much. It was all just brilliant. I really appreciated for one a piece of writing that wasn't trying to form judgement of any character. The story does that at times, but the focus never draws greatly to that. I like just reading, reading whatever's going on and forming my own judgement of what's there. For instance, even as small role Peter was given here, you dropped no hint of him freaking out, or the idea of the malicious potential traitor hidden in him. For that I'm grateful. These little things combined, with you describing Remus's feelings aptly, and the well-written idea of swapping usual character roles b/w Remus and Sirius combinedly gave you a pretty good one-shot I think. Nicely done.

Author's Response: Oh wow, thank you! I definitely agree with you on all your points about characterization, and I've always tried to be careful with it. Remus is my favourite character from the series and one of my favourites to write (especially when interacting with Sirius), so I'm glad that you liked the way I wrote him here. Thanks again for the wonderful review!
