Chapter: Little Devinton

As you can tell by my pen name, I love Lupin! And it's great that you wrote a story from the point of view of his neighbors. It reminded me of the very first chapter of Harry Potter, where we met Uncle Vernon and he's suddenly introduced to wizards. If I didn't know that Lupin was a wizard and a werewolf, I would be very curious... Awesome job!!!

Author's Response: Thank you! Haha if I didn't know Lupin was a wizard and a werewolf I would be very curious too, and rather jealous of Tonks. . . Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Chapter: Little Devinton

This was an interesting story - it's not that rare to read a story which starts from an outsider's perspective and then changes to the main character's, but it's rare to find a whole story about a magical character without a single explicit reference to magic, narrated from a Muggle point of view. And you did it so well.

You did a great job of characterising Remus - his actions the whole way through were completely believable and exactly as I would have imagined it. I smiled a bit early on at the scenes with Justine and Johnny trying to ask him out, and I think you chose a great spot to end this story, with Remus leaving Little Devinton forever and finally having found happiness - though it will be short-lived.

I liked the repetition of the beginning line at the end (yes I know you replaced 'mysterious' with 'interesting', but it's still essentially repeated). I also liked how you explored the idea that while the Muggles are curious about Remus, they would never ever consider that he was a wizard. In fact, they constantly look for solutions which seem natural to them and they can understand. I think that's an interesting comment on human nature, as we do always grasp for things we understand to believe.

This was a very unique and interesting read, great job!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing! Yes, this was pretty difficult to write as I was trying to give a big idea of what Remus was like, but I essentially couldn't really reveal anything about him. I like your comment on how humans tend to grasp for the things we can understand, it seems quite true, especially regarding the Potterverse. Thanks for reading!
