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.
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 umÖwell, 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, isnít 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* :*)
Good informative chapter. Voldemort's and gang are showing their hand more, the Ministry is at least pretending to be doing something abut it, and I think Lily and James are going to start thinking about going out. According to canon they started dating in 7th year, so this would be the time they would start leading up to it.
Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, things are starting to heat up, on all fronts, so to speak. ;)
I finally realized I skipped reading this chapter without realizing it. It's usually late evening when I get to read, and I was sure I had read this chapter. Wrong! I love it, Prongs, Padfoot, Wormtail, and Mooney have finally arrived. I wonder if Wormtail was already susceptible to the Syltherin's? He was/is a worm and a rat.
Author's Response: With as many chapters as there are, and the mess my index page has become *needs to work on the bold font of a/nís towards the end*, I can see missing one. But Iím glad you found it and enjoyed it. I think Wormtail always had characteristics that made him susceptible to the Death Eaters, and he might have secretly harbored some awe/admiration for some of the more prominent Slytherins for their prowess, but at this point, I think he would dislike them if only because Sirius and James did. He would be in greater awe of his own friends since they were the Ďbest in the school at whatever they didí and the Ďheight of coolí. I donít think he would have become involved with Slytherins/Death Eaters until after school, though I know some ff authors write him getting involved in 7th year or earlier. IMO he didnít. Still, I try to show he had those inclinations, while still being a true friend to the rest of the Marauders. It isnít easy to make myself do it when what I really want to do is have a boulder fall on himÖLOL *hates Wormtail*
It was still an okay Sorting Song even if you aren't a poet. I went back and found her on Platform 9 3/4 when the Marauder's made their first trip to Hogwart's. Her mother said she would be going next year which would indicate she wasn't 11 yet. Now she's in the same year. I smell a twist that hasn't occurred yet.
Author's Response: *sigh* Iím so slow in responding, you already know the twist. :*/ But Iím glad the Sorting Song wasnít horrid. LOL No, I am no poet! :*)
Another great chapter. I definitely agree with Remus, Lucius Malfoy is dangerous and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. He probably did put Avery up to propositioning Lindi and punished him for failing. This is almost scarier than the original war. I do like the still growing relationship between Remus and Lindi.
Author's Response: Thank you. I do not like Lucius Malfoy. Basically, he makes my skin crawl. He is not a nice man. Just because he appeared to possibly care about his own family doesn't change that for me at all. *hopes Lucius had a long time in Azkaban to reflect on his wickedness* Oooo, Iím glad you think it is scary. :)
Maybe this is going to be Remus' love interest in this particular story? Not a bad thing at all, especially if he's able to outdo Sirius, lol
Author's Response: :D And again, you already know. *blush* And...*bangs head on desk* I spoiled my story in the review for Hard Work Pays! Now everyone know what I'm going to do with Peter...or at least when. >.< *can't keep her mouth shut when discussing Marauders* >.< *loves them TOO much* :*/
See, I know I'm going to feel really stupid whrn whatever her secret is, is revealed.
Author's Response: *wonders if captburke felt stupid* *hehe* I hope it wasn't too anti-climactic. :)
You can't possibly be serious that people have a problem with Sirus!. He has always been portrayed as a ladies man in Everything I have read about him. First, he was still only 16 and at this point in his life would have no interest in sticking with one girl, like most 16 yr olds. Second, anyone who would give you a hard time should remember that this is fiction, and magic fiction at that, and life is certainly going to be different in the magic world.
Author's Response: LOL I don't know if any of my readers actually do. (It has been so long, I can't remember if I've actually been yelled at in reviews. *old brain*) It is more from reading the forums that I worry that they might. I know what you mean about Sirius being a ladies man in everything...Not that I read much. I don't read Marauder Era since starting MoB because I don't want to mix my thoughts/plans/characterizations up, but on the forums, people are always talking about it being this huge cliche', blah blah... Meh, this is the way I have always seen him (and apparently many others who write him do too. ;)). Thanks for the affirmation. :)
I am most certainly missing something here. Lindi is hiding something from everyone. except perhaps Dumbledore and McGonagall, and I'm sure we're going to discover what it is.
Author's Response: :)
I really hate Voldemort! Evil is too tame for him. I'm wth Lindi on why such bad stuff has to happen when good stuff is just starting to happen. Shades of my spouse dying before our first anniversary I think. I'm still afraid something bad is going to happen to Lindi, but I know it won't be because Remus didn't try and protect her.
Author's Response: I'm so sorry for your loss. Life can be so cruel. Sometimes, I think I would like to just forego all attempt at realism and make everything work out perfectly in the story, just because I have total control, unlike real life. James and Lily live happily ever after with Harry and his three siblings; Remus is cured and lives happily ever after with Lindi and their five kids who are spoiled ever so slightly by Rena and Richard; Sirius can travel the world on his motorcycle, then finally marries the woman of his dreams in his early thirties, after he's finally grown up a bit. They have three beautiful grey eyed children and a big dog, for Padfoot to go on runs in the forest with...Peter...*struggles to think of a lovely ending for Peter the rat*...*Loves happy endings, even if they are far fetched* *sigh*
Great chapter. I'm still convinced there's something going on with Lindi we haven't figured out. There has to be some serious or mysterious reason she has trouble with her wand in DADA. It doesn't seem to be a problem in Charms or Transfiguration.
Author's Response: Thank you, captburke.
