Chapter: Bitter Laughter, Sorrowful Tears

:( this was rather ... Heavy stuff, gina. The tension, anger and confusion were all so thick and palpable. I'm now registering what it must have been like for remus that night. The only thing nagging me is that in POA, sirius and remus reveal they had suspected each other of being the spy; or was that all sirius at first? But this is a nitpick that doesn't cause damage to the overall great quality of the fic. Nicely done! -Natalie

Author's Response: Natalie! Thank you so much for the review! You know, I really did think about those lines from PoA, I did. Well, I don't know why I didn't include it the first time around, but as I was editing out Snape I thought about trying to include it in the rewrite. Dumbledore does mention something. We do know that Sirius didn't tell Remus the location because he suspected Remus. I think Remus says something then in return about suspecting Sirius. I guess I just saw Remus *at this moment* as simply not believing Sirius could do such a thing. I think I've been influenced by too much fanfic, lol - esp. Remus/Sirius. WHICH is not going on in this story, but maybe, just maybe, Remus didn't really believe it was possible until after it all happened. Plus, I just wasn't sure where to add it. I focused Remus's anger more on the fact that the charm failed, the Potters were dead - even a bit on Snape (the original had him punching Snape in the face, lol) So yes - hope that answers your question a bit. I hope it wasn't too distracting. I bet someone else will call me on it too, lol. But I do (as always) think there is room for interpretation when it comes to this...at least until PoA comes out on Pottermore. Then I'll have to delete half my author's page, I'm sure, lol. Thanks again for reading!! I really appreciate the review. :) ~Gina :)

Very touching, and I really enjoyed how you hinted at the complexities of the Order's operations at the end of the first War. There's so much going on at that time, and as you pointed out it's hard to decipher exactly what happened when, but this seems like a pretty good guess to me! Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm glad it seemed plausible, because the original was rendered completely wrong by DH, that's for sure. I just can't imagine how awful this night must have been for Remus. Really, it was probably worse than this. :( Thanks so much for reading, I really appreciate the review! ~Gina :)
