MOMENTS OF BLISS by moonymaniac
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 1200]

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.

We have a very similar phobia. A co-worker thought it would be funny to toss a picture of a cobra on my desk. I screamed loud enough to disturb a meeting two offices away.

Author's Response: LMAO That sounds just like me. I could tell a few stories on myself, but then it might give me away if someone I know read it and recognized my insanity. <.< I HATE SNAKES!!

Are we related by any chance?

Author's Response: If we are, it is distantly. I don't have any relatives in New England, unfortunately. Otherwise I'd already have taken advantage of them and seen the turning leaves in the Autumn. ;)

More and more I'm wishing I had discovered MNFF a couple years ago instead of a few months ago. I'm loving this story. The preparation, the work you've done is tremendous. I'm a reader, not a writer. the Marauders are great guys, Lily and friends are great, new characters introduced for the stories all seem to be true to what I would have imagined. And Wormtail is about to start betraying his friends.

Author's Response: :*) Well, if you had had discovered this particular story on MNFF a couple years ago, you'd probably want to hex me by now, as I'm sure many of my long term readers have from time to time. <.< I can be such a lousy updater. You may soon wish you hadn't found MoB for another year--or two. *dies* But I have really enjoyed writing it. I have spent a lot of time on it, but it has been great fun and when someone tells me they have enjoyed it, it makes it even more rewarding. So thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on it with me. I really appreciate it.

I want to be Siruse when I grow up. My plan, however, is to never grow up. And since I'm over 50 it looks like my plan is working, lol

Author's Response: Sounds like a good plan. I'm not going to grow up either. *states the obvious* *tehe*

Teenager's is all I have to say about that! But I'm glad Remus finally got Lindi to disclose her problem. I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING!

Author's Response: *hehehe* Poor neurotic Lindi!

Wonderful story. I can picture Remus parent's being the people you have described.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, captburke. I have really enjoyed writing Remusí parents. I like to think he felt loved and am sure he was.

Definitely going to become a favorite.

Author's Response: Iím so honored to hear it. I hope you continue to enjoy the story. Thank you, captburke.

That or you could have a VERY large dorm room for all the 1st years in this particular class. I'm guessing they get to change rooms within their year either at the end of 1st term or end of 1st yr. Then the closet friends within the year can be in the same room.

Author's Response: Thatís the way I like to see it. :) Thank you for reviewing, captburke. I really appreciate it.

Since I can remember Olivander mentioning he only used three different cores in his wands that this was a special wand for Remus. Definitely a sutible core for him. He was a loyal friend and tried to lead his friends in the right direction. He may not have been quite as successful as a thestral, he did try.

Author's Response: You know, I didnít actually think of that, but you are absolutely right. I was thinking more of the way thestrals are misunderstood and feared, like Remus as a werewolf. But I love your interpretation. Thank you, captburke.

This is such a great story. I can picture the four of them becoming roommaates, doing stuff together, discussions on girls, homework which only Peter probably needed help with, all the stuff that boys do together. JKR would probably develop the characters much like you have.

Author's Response: Thank you, captburke. That is about the best compliment I could hope for.

Well done chapter. James and Sirius are really funny, but they can certainly be a little annoying. But, that's what teenagers are best at, being annoying.

Author's Response: :D I don't think Remus thought they were very funny! He votes annoying. LOL But I certainly have fun with them. Thank you, captburke.

Date: 01/07/09 Title: Chapter 19: Just a Little Hexing Between Friends

That was another great chapter. Hopefully Lindi will get over her phobia about hexing. I'm betting if she does then she, Remus and Lily could probably take on James and Sirius. Those two are incorrigible(sp)

Author's Response: Yes they are! And the spelling is correct. I looked it up. ;) I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter. I think this was one of my favorites to write, yet. Thanks, captburke.

Good insight yourself.

Author's Response: Thank you. :)

Very enjoyable. Your attention to detail and story flow is excellent. The only problem I have is teenage hormones and the confusion they go through trying to figure each other out. I've always been one to just come out and say what I mean, even when it got me in trouble.

Author's Response: *haha* I thought honesty was always the best policy! ;) I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter. Thank you. Sometimes I worry that I'm burying my readers in too much detail. It always took me an hour to tell a story about nothing. :*) Yes, they'd be far less stressed if they'd just learn to communicate.

Date: 01/07/09 Title: Chapter 22: A Little Adventure

Great chapter. I can absolutely sympathize with Lindi's phobia. I have a snake phobia from getting chased with one when I was little, and finding one on our kitchen floor one morning when I was getting ready for school. I'd also like to hex Darlene into next week. She is definitely a twit!

Author's Response: O.M.G!! I found one in the hallway of my house when I was young! Scared the bejeebees out of me! Actually, I had far too many run-ins with snakes as a child. Poisonous ones, too. *shivers* I'm so phobic, I can't see them on TV or even in a picture. without jumping. I've thrown books when I turn a page and a snake is in a picture. One of my favorite graphics from MNFF forums was of Salazar Slytherin (he was really hot! :*)) , but I couldn't use it or look at it because it had a HORRID snake on it. >.< It's really a nuisance, this phobia thing. Yes, that sums Darlene up nicely. LOL

Rather interesting chapter. These teenage hormones are definitely out of control. But they are funny. I can't wait to read Lindi's answer in the next chapter.

Author's Response: :*) Don't all teenagers do stupid things like this? >.>

<.< :*)

The first part of the chapter was really good. Righteous anger works really well when trying to make someone understand what they've done wrong. Snape should have been beaten to a bloody pulp years ago.
Remus breaking up with Lindi so he wouldn't have to tell her he's a werewolf is somewhat understandable, though I would have thought he had a little more courage than that. Rotten fruit, rocks and frozen salmon should be the least of your worries.

Author's Response: *hides from rotten things* :*/ Don't think too badly of Remus. Hopefully he has redeemed himself a bit. Snape...LMAO Tell me how you really feel! LOL Thanks, captburke. I do get a kick out of your reviews.

Date: 01/08/09 Title: Chapter 24: The Answer Is As Clear as Pea Soup

Darlene should be hexed into next year.I certainly approve of Lindi's reasoning, and the Marauder's and Lily trying to give Remus and her some alone time. I'm also beginning to think there is a problem with Lindi that no one is going to be able to overcome

Author's Response: I greatly dislike Darlene. Oooo, that is very intriguing about Lindi. That's the kind of comment that makes me wish I could buy you a coffee and chat about it. Of course, I probably couldn't say anything, for danger of spoiling the story, but I would love to know more.

I like your scenerio. Peter would decide to become a rat permanently and get eaten by Padfoot and friend on one of the romps in the forest.

Author's Response: LOL That works for me! :D

I like the way you wrote the chapter and a description of kissing isn't necessary. I love learning so the more info you put into the story the better I like it.

Author's Response: Thank you. Iím glad to know you liked it. Ha, I wish Iíd known the kissing description wasnít necessary. It would have saved me a whole lot of angst! LOL
