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.

Life is never easy. Remus will always have the stigma of what he is to contend with and always try to protect those he cares about from being affected by it. Lily is an exception to everything. Smart talented and wise. As much as she thinks Remus should tell Lindi, she does know it's best he doesn't. That Lindi also has a secret illness isn't as startling as it might be. There have been hints throughout the story. And if she insisted on staying with Remus once she knew the truth, any injury to her because of it would more than likely lead to her death. Remus would never be able to live with that.

True love never runs smooth. Awesome chapter

Author's Response: Ain’t it the truth? Um, the true love part, :*) though I appreciate the comment on the chapter, too. Thank you.

Things just keep getting better

Author's Response: :D Thank you.

Bravo! Great chapter. I'm thinking Lindi will understand about Remus "furry little problem", but maybe not. It's more than possible she expects something, but doubt it's that he's a werewolf. James is there for him, and gives him sound council and advice. Now we wait.

Author's Response: LOL, captburke. You think she will, but maybe not...LOLOL I'm glad you are in some suspense. It wouldn't be much fun for either of us if you weren't. ;) And yes James is growing up. Too bad Lily couldn't have been a fly on the wall, although she might not have been impressed with the not blaming a bloke for trying bit. :P I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for reviewing. "Now we wait." *dies* I really hope not toooo long. :*)

People are going to gossip and come to whatever conclusions are the most unlikely. Human nature being what it is, the worse you can imagine about others, the better you can feel about yourself. It's possible Will may have suspicions about Remus. He may not want his cousin to know and won't confront Remus if Lindi is around. And when Remus is out of school there is no way he can stay off the Werewolf Registration list. Remus so wants to punish himself for what he did to Lindi that his thought process is extremely warped. Sirius is correct. Just because it's Remus life doesn't mean the Marauder's are going to let him hurt himself. The principle is roughly the same as 'friends not letting friends drive drunk'. Just because it's your life and you drink to excess doesn't mean your friends can't try and keep you from hurting yourself over it. Sirius might be an arrogant berk, but he is absolutely correct in insisting he do whatever he can to help Remus.

Author's Response: Absolutely!! Sirius was an arrogant berk, but he was a good friend (or tried mightily to be) to those he loved. Will...that's possible, also, he probably is the type to want to get to the bottom of things before he acts. He is different than Sirius. ;) And the rest of this is pretty spot on. Have you been reading my notes/mind? lol Thanks, captburke. I appreciate the time you take to review. It helps keep me going. (even if I go reaallly slowly) :*)

What a great beginning to a relationship blessed by the gods. Tonks and Remus were made for each other. And hopefully she will never change.

Wonderful. They are my favorite couple. You write good stuff. On to the next story.

 

Imperius by Pallas
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 482]

Summary: “Imperius… Werewolves…You-Know-Who…” The last words of a dying man force Remus Lupin into a dangerous investigation at the infamous Feral Institute. Sequel to Oblivious; pre-reading would be useful but it isn’t vital.

You write extremely well. I've thoroughly enjoyed every story of yours I've read. Thank you.

 
Reviewer: captburke Signed
Date: 07/26/09 Title: Chapter 15: At The Three Broomsticks

This doesn't sound good.

 
Reviewer: captburke Signed
Date: 07/26/09 Title: Chapter 16: Naked

Very interesting. Are they going to make feral dementors? They couldn't possibly think they could switch souls? Feral werewolves with no human soul at all would be bad, but they'd only be dangerous once a month. Could the feral soul take over and give the human body a life like it would at the fullmoon?
The surveillance of Felisha isn't good.

I'm getting a bad feeling here about our old buddy Kane. Did he not have a soul for the Dementor to suck out? This sounds like another good adventure.

I've got a real bad feeling about this place.

 
Reviewer: captburke Signed
Date: 07/18/09 Title: Chapter 3: A Werewolf's Soul

I very definitely don't like the idea of Remus going back to that place. There's something more than not right about it.
And what kind of twist do we have here?

 
Reviewer: captburke Signed
Date: 07/18/09 Title: Chapter 4: Brief Encounters

I really don't like that place. But that was funny with Felisha. But why is she working there? This may not be good for our side.
And what's Dad up to? Hmmnn

Very intriguing. Can't wait to see if I can figure out where it's going.

I really, really don't like the feeling I'm getting.

 
Reviewer: captburke Signed

Which Lupin are they talking about? Is that why Rey is so nervous? Is he helping with some type of research? Or are they going to try and kidnap Remus?

 
Reviewer: captburke Signed

Getting very scary. This is a good story. Still not sure where we're headed, but it's sure to be interesting.
