Summary: A sixth year fic that explores what might happen if Harry moves past the angst and starts to put his life together and has a few things break his way for a change.
I, without reservation, absolutely love, adore, whatever other adjectives you can think of, Sirius letter to Harry. I can see him writing, re-writing, re-wording that letter to say what he wanted Harry to hear. I've wanted to be Sirius when I grow up since POA. I'm over 50 and never growing up, but I still want to be Sirius. Of the last four stories I started, this is the one I want to read.
There is no way I am not going to be a huge fan of this story. Unless you turn it into a mushy/angsty/revolting teenage soap opera. Good writing, great characters.
Uh oh, another crisis to deal with. I know, I kinw, lots of people love having them every other chapter, makes for exciting reading. I'm not one of those people. however the story is definitely worth reading so I will follow to the end.
Okay, it was a really great sort of crisis and I love the way it played out. I know there'll be more and I'll complain, but I'll read them anyway. The humor is everything I could ask for, extremely cynical, or dry, or sick, or something most people wouldn't appreciate or understand, just like my sense of humor. The Sorting Hat is, as usual, right again. And if you write as far as kids, James Sirius is a good name.
This is a really fun story. I'm sure it won't all be as much fun or as funny, but that's okay too. I have an extremely warped sense of humor and this fits that to a tee!
If you have finished this story on some other site please let me know so I can go there and finish it.
Very well written so far. Good plot/storyline, progression at a very believeable pace, characters all believeable. Well, the Dursley's acting like real people and Dudley having a conversation with Harry may take a little getting used to, but I can handle that.
Fascinating. This is an extremely well thought out and well written story.
Very touching. The entire chapter, even the twins. From the moment Harry met the Weasley's at Kings Cross I pictured he and Ginny together when they were adults. I'm not sure JKR could have written this better.
I think I woke up my neighbors because I was laughing so hard and loud. I have laughed at other stories on MNFF but not nearly as much or as loud as during this chapter. My goal is to be Sirus when I grow up ever since reading POA. Being over 50 and never intending to grow up I may not reach my goal, but i"m certainly going to try. You have portrayed Sirus exactly as I would have pictured him. I can't wait to read the rest. The Weasley's, Lupin, Tonks, and McGonagall deserve everything Sirus left them.
To repeat myself, I absolutely love this story and the way you have written it. The laughter is the best. My warped sense of humor fits perfectly with Harry's world in the first place, and this stoy in particular. I most certainly hope you have been able to finish this at another site and that I find that site.
Just keeps getting better. Kreacher doing himself in, well I'm guessing in your story it doesn't affect Voldy's end.
Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
At last, mission accomplished!!!
Author's Response: And about darn time! Now the tough stuff starts! :)
Those three are going to be very lucky if Lily doesn't find out what they did. If she does find out, glad I won't be there, lol. Sometimes I wonder how they actually made it out of Hogwart's alive.
Author's Response: *snicker*
ROTFLMAO after the last few lines! I'm betting those were Auror's at King's Cross. Things are getting more tense in the Wizarding world
Author's Response: Yes, they are, which is why it was so much fun for me to give Remus and the crew a few more light and silly moments. *sigh* Glad you seemed to enjoy it too.
I do like the way you write. I like the concern from his parent's and the fact his Dad is so levelheaded. Mom's always worry more.
Author's Response: Thank you. I just love writing his parents. They have been some of my favorite parts.
Really nice flow to the chapter. The growing relationship between Remus and Lindi seems so natural. I just have the feeling something bad is going to happen.
Author's Response: Natural is exactly what I like to hear. Thank you. And um…well, I can safely say that you are probably right, since it is Marauder era and we know how that ultimately turned out. :( *blames JKR completely* But just how many other bad things, and what, is the question, isn’t it? *zips lips*
Author's Response: :-D
Great chapter. I am, however, getting that "something bad is going to happen" feeling. And I'm thinking it's going to happen to Lindi. Hope I'm wrong.
Author's Response: <.< Is your last name Trelawney? >.> Lindi hopes you are wrong, too. ;)
Good thing I like laughing. The Marauder's can be hysterical at times. I'm wondering if Ms Dellington is going to be something like a student teacher?
Author's Response: Yay for laughing! I love *hearing* that. Thanks, captburke. And of course, now you know. *is slow replying* :*)
