Wow, I really liked this story! My favorite part was that Teddy doesn't realize Tonks and Remus is dead, that's so sad.. It's just the way a baby would think, I loved that touch! I'm also relieved to know that your other fic is going to come back someday, I couldn't check this site for a few months and I totally panicked when I checked for the next chapter and saw it was gone.. I'll be looking forward to it:)

Author's Response: I am so glad you liked it. Death is a concept most kids don't understand, especially in Teddy's case where he never even knew the people who are dead so he can't even associate death with missing or being gone. And yes! My scorose fic will be returning, completely revamped. I just wasn't satisfied with the direction 'A Strange Distance' was headed, so I completely rewrote my outline, rethought my characters, and am very happy with how the new version is coming along. Already have three chapter written, so look for it soon! :)

Way to make me cry from the sad cuteness

Author's Response: Aw, I'm sorry... well, not totally, haha. I'll take it as a compliment :)

This is so touching and gives such a good view into Teddy LUpin and what his life must have been like. Now that i have read this i am wondring what harry thought about his parents when he was 3

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! That is a thought, now isn't? Especially considering that he was there for his parents' deaths and saw Lily's. Hmm, something to think about!

This is really sweet and touching. I think you've caught a three year old's voice very well, because he's not as articulate as writers often make very young children, and yet he can still make himself understood. Oh, his thoughts on Mummies and Daddies, and all the different ones he sees are just heartbreaking. I also loved the way you hooked back to Hogwarts, and showed Andromeda's grief in snapshots, although she's recovering (largely because of Teddy, I suppose).

One quibble. He's actually Teddy 'Remus' Lupin, and not James. It says this in DH, when Remus toasts his son.

Lovely story though. I will admit to sniffling a little at the end. Remus and Tonks's deaths have always struck me as so pointless and sad. :(

Well done ~Carole~

Author's Response: Thanks for the wonderful words, Carole! I really tried to keep Teddy's voice young and childlike, doing quite a bit of research on the language of a three year old. Even the way I write him is a bit advanced, but being limited by sentences that are only four words long would have just been torture! And I just changed the middle name; thanks for letting me know! I feel like such an idiot, because I knew his middle name was Remus but somehow convinced myself it was James somewhere along the line... Thanks again for the review! It is greatly appreciated. ◊◊◊ Wren ◊◊◊

This is so beautiful that I cannot actually comprehend my thoughts enough to write you a proper review (even though I know you must want one). All I can say is that you've truly captured the innocence of childhood and the sorrow that comes with somebody passing on, all combined together.
Thanks for writing this fic :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the lovely review! I am extremely happy to hear that Teddy came across as young and innocent. I wasn't sure if he came off to old for his age. Thank you again for the encouraging words!

Brought tears to my eyes. It was very real.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! That is exactly the effect I was hoping for. Glad it read off as real as I imagined it as I was writing.
