Wonderfully written! I can clearly hear Remus's calm, yet determined voice throughout the story. His thoughts match his character perfectly. I enjoyed his reaction at first meeting James, and then Harry. The flashback was written strategically well.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so glad you found him in character, yay! And I'm glad the flashback worked, as those can be tricky. Thank you so much for the lovely review, I'm so happy you enjoyed it! ~Gina :)
This is wonderfully written, and a great encapsulation of Remus's various roles throughout Harry's life. I think Remus has had more hardships dealt to him than any other character, yet he maintains an amazingly composed and determined outlook on life, which you capture very well.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I really appreciate the lovely compliments and am so glad to have done Remus justice here. I truly feel for him when I write things like this. You are exactly right about his hardships. Thanks again for reading this and for the lovely review! ~Gina :)
Awwww baby Harry ;) And Remus! GIna, this was lovely. I think you're one of the very few people who can pull off first person Marauder, and I think you did a great job here.
I never really thought about how Remus must've been feeling during that train journey. You really captured that feeling of nostalgia and the sadness Remus must have felt while his friend's son was in the same compartment as him. And I love the banteryness of the Marauders even before they become Marauders, lol.
The ending was fab, especially the line "I have not come to Hogwarts for a job, nor have I really come to teach. I have come for Harry, so that Sirius cannot." I just feel like yelling at Remus that he's wrong, hahahahaha. Oh, but I did think it was a little rushed towards the end, when Harry collapsed, as I would have liked to see more of teh dialogue before Harry had woken up, etc, but I do understand that there was a word limit, so I suppose that's why.
All in all, Gina, this was a nice story that I enjoyed :) I will defnitely be back, if not on Eid, then the day after XD
Author's Response: Thank youuuuu, Soraya! I really appreciate the review and all your lovely comments. Yes, if I could have included a bit more when it came time for the Dementors to show up, I probably would have, but there was that word limit. Jess mentioned expanding it for the archives but I never really considered it. If I had, that's probably something I would have added, plus a bit more at the end. Ah well. I'm still happy with the way the memories turned out. Thanks for the compliment on the Marauders. I do love them, you know! Thanks againnnnnn! ~Gina :)
This is a really great story. I didn't want it to end, but then it ends perfectly, it couldn't end better. Wether Remus really is asleep in the books, is something I don't know. But I've really often wondered why Remus choose that mean of transportation...
Thanks for the read, in which you capture the same feeling of the mauradere time as you have in Raindrops, or some of your other works.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the story and that I've managed to capture that Marauder feeling. I do like them, you know. ;) I had never really wondered why he took the train, since the other means would have been easier, but now I have my own private little answer, lol. Thanks again! ~Gina :)
Nice touch- wanted to keep reading.
Author's Response: Thank you! I would have loved to write more, but there was a strict word limit. :) I'm glad you enjoyed it as it was - thanks again! ~Gina :)
Author's Response: Thank you very much!! ~Gina :)
Oh. So good... :D
I'd always imagined that Lupin wasn't really asleep on that ride. :P This was fantastically (if that's a word) awesomely (please forgive my word-making-up tendencies) powerful. I really liked it, the last 2 paragraphs made an especially strong statement.
Keep up the good work! :D :D :D
