DUDE! Please don't delete.
haha, when it said a tall slim blonde professor, and then sharpe, i thought it said snape.
Personally, I think this is an excellent example of Remus's character. It shows his nervousness, intelligence, but mostly, his thankfulness for Sirius, James and Peter's company.
It also seems that Remus is reluctant to grow up, (with his lack of developing a relationship Lindi for quote some time) with which seems perfectly like him. If I was Remus, and a life of estrangement, and abuse waited for me, I would want to stay in school as long as possible, and I definitely wouldn't want to leave. Hell, if I went to Hogwarts, I wouldn't want to leave either: D
Also, when he wants to tell Lindi of his condition, it makes me feel really sorry for him, because I know exactly how he feels. Remus is an honest guy, and he greatly dislikes lying.
I like how he worries about what his friends are going to make Lindi do, and how he upholds loyalty to not only his friends, but his girlfriend, and he does it without question.
Overall, I think you did an excellent job, and I can’t imagine Remu’s character being written any other way – the only part I didn’t like was the first chapter – I found it a bit slow, but it is really essential to show the nervousness his parents went through concerning his schooling.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, untitlednine. I am so glad that Remus\' appreciation for his friends comes through. Working on the second half of Chapter 47, Friends Like These, has made me think about that so much, so thank you. I\'m so thrilled that you find my portrayal of Remus believable. He is my absolute favorite character ever and I don\'t want to mess him up. I hope I don\'t! I know what you mean about the first chapter, too. Back when I first started posting, MNFF had a hit counter that authors could see how many hits their story got. Well, it was fairly obvious that many people hit the first chapter and then didn\'t come back. I briefly took it down, convinced it was losing me readers, but I had a few complaints from people wanting it back and I realized I was worrying too much about how many readers I had. :*( I put it back up. It is a little slow, but it has important background info in it and well...I sort of like it. :*) Anyway, I\'m just glad you didn\'t let it keep you from continuing on with the story. Thank you so much for this lovely review. I really appreciate it.
wow. really, wow. like, nothing to say wow. well done:D
And no, contrary to beliefs very likely impressed upon you by this summary, I'm not a gormless prat.
Well... not entirely.
what?? i don't get it??? i want more! dammit. arggh, i'm gonna go drown my sorrows with nicotine, yay.
so, tell me theres a seqal?
anyway, in case you havnt gthered by my enthusiasm, i loved the story.
alright, i've found a sequal, consider me temporairily sedated:D
Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.

Peter raised his eyebrows. “Y’know, if you’re that hungry, you can ask me for food anytime you want. I always have sweets and things in my trunk.”
that made me laugh.
well done for the first part of the story. how far are you planning on continuing it?
awww, theres no more parts up:( how long until the next one?
its great so far.
i'm just hoping lily wasn't wearing a skirt.
flangst! wow, you didn't ask for a reveiw, so have one.
even though its all flangsty, its still really good.
Author's Response: Heh...I try to think of creative ways of asking for them without annoying people...
lol, for the wardrobe thing.
who does that??
(this is like the 30th reveiw ive left you. woh.)
Author's Response: *cough* Well, NOT me. Heh...
I don\'t mind at all. And hey, If you get the urge to leave thirty more, then feel free!
thank god they actually kissed before i ran out of chapters to read- otherwise i probably would have gone insane. bloody sexual tension. how long till the next part :D
Author's Response: Guess you\'re lucky, then!
It\'ll be up tommorrow (it\'s the 20th of December right now..heh...sorry about the lateness!)
wow, this box sure is sexy. cough. good chapter:D
Author's Response: *cough* mybox *cough*
great chapter! can't wait for the next, as per usual.
Author's Response: The next chapter will be up tomorrow (No school!). Thanks for reading!
Just to add something, I'm surprised there was no joke about 'Remus's special time of the month.' Or is that not allowed here?
Author's Response: Oh, there will be, but not for another few chapters.
I love the P.S. Sirius sticks on his forehead.
Author's Response: Yes, Sirius\'s little message! Thanks for reading!
very good. two questions- when does the next one come out?
and also, are you planning on writing this until their seventh year? (please)
Author's Response: When does the next what come out? Chapter? If that\'s what you mean, I don\'t know, within the next week or so. I\'m taking this through the first war and the epilogue will be post-DH. Thanks for reading!
Millicent Bagnold was actually a minister of magic, as it says here, but i think she took the position before fudge, and just before voldermort disappeared for the first time.
so she wasn't minister when this story is set. i think.
Author's Response: I think she was...in HBP, it says Voldemort terrorized Britian for \"nearly four decades\"...it never actually says when, during that period, he disappeared. But thanks for having a keen eye out!
excellent. makes sirius's death less.... well, i dunno. but it makes his death seem much better- in the sense that because he believed he failed james, he knew he was making it up to him.
but im still angry that he had to die.
but, it was very well written.
Author's Response: Oh, thanks so much for the review, untitlednine. I\'m glad you enjoyed the story.
Yes, I wanted Sirius\'s death to have a bit more meaning, and James was the way I wanted to show that.
But I agree ... Regardless of how meaningful it was, I HATED the fact that he died. *Misses her favourite character too much*
Anyway, thank you again for the review, (and Sirius extends his thanks as well).
i remember reading the beginning two sections on the beta boards. i really love this story, it really captures the way you miss someone when they die.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading the rest of it this time around. But I think we miss people all the time, regardless of whether they are dead... Thanks.
i like the 'Honestly, I had never met anyone with such an expressive face.' thing.
all up, its really cute.
Author's Response: Aw, thanks! I\'m glad you liked it!
