About Werewolf Among Wizards
So before chapter 8, it had been over four years since I last posted, and for that I am truly sorry. For those last four years, part of me wanted to just say that the story was complete and close that piece of my life, but another part of me felt so guilty about the handful of mostly-completed chapters collecting figurative dust on my hard drive that would never see the light of day, I knew I could not in good conscience leave them there. Not that it made them any easier to finish.
Looking back over my chapters both posted and un-posted, I find myself mostly happy with what I have written, and even those parts that make me less happy, I have decided to leave mostly unchanged. It is all part of a different era of my life, and to go back and edit it would be, I think, disrespectful to my 17/18-year-old self.
So chapter 9 is in the queue. Many thanks to Roxy Black for helping me with length problem. I'm really excited about chapters 10-12, or what I have dubbed "The Willow Parts 1-3". Chapters 10 and 11 are done and just waiting to hop in the queue!
I go back and forth on what chapter pieces to flesh out and include and which ones to leave behind, but right now this fic looks like it could be anywhere from 14 to 17 chapters total.
For everyone still enjoying Harry Potter fan fiction, bless you! And thank you all for reading!
Summary: In Remus Lupin's fifth year at Hogwarts, his devoted friends finally master the complex Animagus spell, beginning the adventures they will remember for the rest of their lives. But Remus must also face prejudice in the rising war, a test of loyalty versus love, and the danger of his dark secret being revealed.
Pet Peeve Disclaimer: Peter is not worthless, Lily does not have three friends who fall for the Marauders, and no one calls Remus "Remy."
This is a great fic and I hope you haven't given up on it. You do such a good job with characterizations and you have a great story line, I would hate to see it left unfinished, so please update soon! Oh, and btw, I totally agree with all of your pet peeves in your summary. Especially the last one: Remy. Honestly, whose idea of a sick joke was that? Please update!
Summary: Songfic in which Tonks compares old boyfriends to Remus. To the song "Tall, Dark, Handsome Stranger" by Heart.
Very well done. You did a good job incorporating the song into the story. TONKS AND REMUS FOREVER!
Summary: The lives of Sirius and Remus. From start to untimely finish.
This story is AMAZING! Are you continuing it? Please tell me you are!
Summary: A short RL/NT fic that explores Remus' feelings from just after Sirius' death up through the end of Book 6. Currently, we're looking at about three chapters or so. The story was inspired by the song "Better Than Me" by Hinder - it's not a songfic, just an idea I had while listening to the song!
Later chapters contain HBP spoilers!
Rating is just in case and for very slight language use.
The last chapter is in the queue! Thanks to all my faithful readers for being so very patient with me.
My favorite quote:
"Her eyes lit up like she had just gotten a new puppy (although, in a way, she did)"
This fic is so sweet! A little sad at times too (like the end of chapter one), but that's kind of how there relationship is, isn't it: super sweet and sad. Remus and Tonks FOREVER!!!!
Oh, and congrats on your promotion! (I read your bio)
Summary: To qualify for Auror training requires N.E.W.T.s in several subjects – and one of them is Potions. If Tonks thinks it through, she might realize that she can do a very important favour for someone she cares a great deal about.
Awww, how sweet! I loved it! I especially like the part towards the end when he's talking about how the potion lets him keep his "self". It really made his character for me in this story. I love Remus so much.
Are you planning on writing anything more?
Author's Response: Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed the story! I appreciate your kind words. I am still writing, but I\'ve been posting at somewhat smaller fanfic sites these days. I have a LiveJournal account (shimotsuki), and in the sidebar you can find a link to \"index of all stories\".
Summary: There are two sides to every story. See the events of the infamous werewolf prank as they unfold through the eyes of both Sirius Black and Severus Snape.
So, at first I was going to point out that your story line was a little off (because in The Prince's Tale we find out that the "Prank" took place before the underwear displaying incident), but then I realized: OMG, you wrote it pre-DH!! That's amazing! I just assumed it was post-DH because of the Snape/Lily stuff. I didn't look at the dates until after I finished the whole fic. Really, do you or your co-author have any Seer blood in your families?
Anyway, I loved your fic! You both did such good characterization with everyone: Sirius, James, and Snivellus. It was very creative! Although, I do wish we could have seen a bit more of Remus. But this fic is excellent, there's no denying that. Great job!
And again: Seer blood?
Summary: Tonks and Remus love each other, but Remus has been afraid of hurting Tonks, so for a long time he denied his feelings for her. Now that they've put their issues aside, they're married and happy, but for how long? Voldemort is rising in power by the day, threatening to destroy good magic. Will Tonks and Remus be able to survive the battle?
Remus and Tonks forever!
Summary: Remus Lupin is sneaking out at night, and the other Marauders want to know what he is up to, so what do they do? Follow him of course. An Early Marauder's era fic
"snickers* Fantastic. Poor Peter. You took the long way to get to the joke, but it was definitely worth it!
Summary: Three nights after Sirius died, Remus Lupin went to Grimmauld Place with the intentions of honoring his friend as Sirius wished to be honored after death- by getting drunk and getting a girl. But little did he know that Nymphadora Tonks, also stricken with grief, would be there, attempting to cope with her new and unfamiliar feelings of grief. As they honor Sirius together, and for one night live the life he had lived, they learn of the comfort of love in a dark world where every day can be their last, and of the pain love can mean when the dream can't come true.
Summary: A tale of Remus Lupins early life, as seen from his father's perspective. John Lupin worked in The Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, and held a particular disdain for werewolves. It was this ferverent belief that would cause an event which would would change his views and his world, as well as his son's, forever.
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Eleven stars out of ten. You did a truly amazing job with this fic and I loved reading it. You captured Remus's character and Potterverse werewolf prejudice perfectly. I was SO ANGRY when he was branded! Poor Remus! I was really sad when John died at the end. I grew quite attached to your interpretation of him in this fic. I hope you continue to write because you have a lot of talent. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must go read Part 2 from Silvia's perspective.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I\'m so pleased that you enjoyed this story so much. Now that the holidays are over, I\'m going to continue working on the third installment of thise series. :)
Summary: Chapter Ninety Six is posted!
This is the story of four boys. This is the story of a boy from a family he wants to escape from. This is the story of a boy who is from a family he loves deeply, but lacks the gift of a best friend. This is the story of a boy who has been living with a curse his entire life, fighting to overcome it. This is the story of a boy who wishes to show people what he can do. This is the story of how these four boys came to know each other, of how they became friends. This is the story of their unbreakable bond, of a bond that could survive any test, any trial. This is a story that will ultimately end in tragedy.

Wow! This is incredible! I just dicovered this story this morning, and I read the first few chapters and fell in love. My homework was negleted because I spent most of my day reading the whole of your story. It is clear to me that you have a gift for fiction writing. I think this is one of the things that makes your story so good: not only to you have an evident passion for Harry Potter and a talent for expanding on the Marauders' personalities, but you also have incredible writing skills that make this story impossible to stop reading. You have totally inspired me. I can't wait for the next chapter. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Aww, poor neglected homework :) I love the Marauders, there\'s so much we don\'t know about them that makes them fun to write about. Thanks for reading! Hopefully 20 will be up sometime this week.
Sirius is a loveable person, and so modest. Great chapter!
Sirius is a loveable person, and so modest. Great chapter!
Author's Response: Loveable, yes, and I hope that modest was sarcastic. He definitely wasn\'t modest in this chapter. Thanks for reading!
Another good chapter! Sad, yes, but still good.
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: A different perspective to the usual Marauder story. Friendship, violence, love... Look at the known story from Remus's pont of view.
I like how you did the bite scene from Greyback's perspective; it makes it different from other fics, and also very interesting. But I can see why there is a violence warning. The second to last paragraph is awful, but appropriately so. I don't have time to read the next few chapters now, but I will be back later to read them, and if they are as good as this one, I will definitely leave more reviews. Great first chapter!
Senem, I really liked the song! First of all, it actually had a rhythm. Most people just make they're songs rhyme and never mind a beat, but yours had a great meter. And the words were very original; saying the same thing, but in a unique way. Kudos! I liked this chapter, please update soon! -Anna
Summary: The Marauders are in third year Muggle Studies, with their latest class project sneaking up on them: ballroom. "Who cares?" they think, "Hardly any Muggles even dance; they don't even like it that much. Why should we have to deal with it?" Professor Richardt has other ideas.
I recently read back through this and cringed at how poorly written it was. I'm going to finish the sequel, and then this story is getting completely revamped. Thanks to all who put up with the poor writing and complimented it!
This is a really cute story! It had some clever stuff too; PlayWizard cracked me up. I think I'll read the sequel now. Great story!
Author's Response: I had lots of fun coming up with the PlayWizard scene. Thanks for the review!
Summary: It is the first meeting of the Order of the Phoenix. Remus Lupin expected to hear news about Voldemort's return. He didn't realize that he would see an unexpected guest. He also didn't expect that he would have feeling for her.
Final fic for Professor Mar's Animagus Studies Class by tc015 of Gryffindor
Author's Response: Thanks!!
Giant spiders, malevolent bats, wizard scouts...werewolves. Tonks finds life in Hogsmeade far from simple, while Remus discovers having a partner in touch with her inner wolf complicates his mission and his heart.
So Dix approves, "Nym" can visit the pack when she wants, the blood magic is safe, Tonks didn't get the snot beat out of her by angry Slytherins for sporting Gryffindor colors, and she and Remus are off for a lovely time at a nice hotel? Hmm... some saying about "the calm before the storm" comes to mind...
Anyway, great chapter. You do an amazing job with OCs, by the way (not something you can always find in fan fiction). I'm just as curious to see what happens to Will and Lillie as I am Tonks and Remus. Update soon!
"The calm before the storm" is right on target! HBP was sucktacular at Christmas. I'm going to give Remus reason to be blue, sad to say. :(
Tonks and a pack of less-than-friendly werewolves (with one obvious exception :D). I don't know; I have a bad feeling about that...
Good chapter, though.
Author's Response: I think you and Remus share that feeling. Wonder if that will keep Tonks from the party? :D
