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.
You updated! Thank you! It was a great chapter to add the the great story. I dont think Sirius (as great as he is) would of been able to give the advice james gave, im glad hes growing up. Remus really has to tell her soon before he does something stupid like break up with her, i hope everthing goes ok and she accepts it and doesent pity him. You have no excuse to make us wait ages for an update as you have allready started :D
And if your wondering why i have spelt padfoot wrong, it was a typo which i accidently pressed enter without double checking.
Author's Response: LOL! I hate that there isn't a spell check or some way to edit things like that. On the other hand, I rather like it. It's different! And funny. :D
On the other other hand, my failure to update in a timely fashion is not so funny, or different, and I don't like it at all. :P I hate to admit it, but feel I owe you guys the truth. I'm still in about the same place I left myself with the head start. >.< I have been out of town, as I told Xain. I promise to do my best to get a good bit finished this weekend and I do have the next section already written (hand written in a notebook) in very rough draft. It is a part I wrote in the first few months of the story, about 4 years ago, so it is verrryyy rough, but it gives me a good head start on that part so it isn't like looking at a blank white page. So I got that goin for me! ;) /quoting Caddyshack] Of course, <.< I seem to have misplaced the notebook. >.< But I'm sure it will turn up. >.> *hides*
We definitely agree on the roles of Sirius and James in this one. It had to be James. And Remus... I really hope everything goes ok, too. <.< >.> *evil grin* *MUWAHAHAHACKcoughsputterhack* I'm out of practice being evil. I never was very good at it. *sigh* :) /trying to keep readers curious] :*)
Wow I was not expecting that! Again another great chapter, I have enjoyed everyone! I don't think the time line blip will really make a difference. Are you planning on writing on Snape's Worst memory? Remus really needs to tell her next chapter and serious needs a VERY strong punishment. But i trust your choice in whatever you write and i am sure i will enjoy, good luck!
Author's Response: Oh, I love it when I throw a surprise! I'm glad you enjoyed it. SWM was only briefly mentioned many chapters ago, in Girl Talk, the one about Lily and Lindi talking in the woods while the Marauders eavesdropped. I felt that we knew enough about it from the book, and I didn't think it was quite as significant for Remus' story as it turned out to be. >.< I'm glad I didn't know, because I probably wouldn't have written all this, but anyway... You trust me? Thank you for saying so. I hope I don't betray it. :) Thank you, PagfootIsBack. *love that Pagfoot....LOL*
Hey, A very good chapter, abit short though =[ I hope remus makes the right choice and tells her.
I found Moments Of Bliss about three of your updates ago and you've had me hooked, i've been checking everyday to see if you have updated. You are the reason ive joined to write this review and say well done and you deserve a medal for writing sush a good fic.
Any idea on when the updates going to be?
Author's Response: Hi, Ryan. Thank you so much for taking the time to register and leave me such a wonderful review. I'm honored. I'm so glad to know you are reading and enjoying. When you wrote that you'd been with me since about 3 updates ago, I initially thought, hey, a newbie...then I realized how long ago that actually was. >.< *dies* Honestly, I'm on the verge of putting up a warning on the first chapter telling people not to start reading until I finish, so they won't have to deal with my pathetic updating habits. Of course, I do like the encouragement when I hear from a new reader, (hint hint) so I will probably be selfish and not warn them. :*) Anyway, I checked in and found this, my 1000 review (along with going over 20,000 reads/hits). *dances* Call me silly, but I think that is sort of cool. :*) Anyway, I had been checking in periodically, and it sat at 999 for some time and I was really afraid that the 1000th would end up being one of my wonderful, but frustrated, readers telling me they were fed up with waiting. :*/ I certainly wouldn't have blamed them. So, next update? Well, it should be very soon. I came to a decision with input from my beta and decided to go ahead and post what I have finished. It is not the full chapter I had intended, but you all know how verbose I am. *blush* Yes, the chapter was well over 6500 words and not even close to finished. >.< So, I have decided that, rather than make you all wait until I included everything I wanted in it, and still have to post two separate chapters, I am going to post it as an independent one and post the rest when I finish it. (Hopefully it won’t be 2 months) <.< Of course, I had to find a place I felt was good for splitting it, so this one will be 'abit short' too, relatively speaking (just over 5000 words). On the bright side, I'm a good 1500 words into the next chapter already. *Yay me* So anyway, look for a chapter within the next few days to a week at most, barring unforeseen problems. I hope you enjoy it when it is up. Thanks again for reviewing. Your prize for being the 1000th reviewer is this seriously rambling reply. :*) lol *shutting up now*
0.o I thought the final line he was going to tell her he was a werewolf, not to break up with her! You are full of surprises in your story writing,they are going to ger back togther, arent they?
Please update as soon as posible!
Author's Response: Muwahahah....*loves surprises* It would be dull without them, wouldn't it? Of course you know I can't answer that question, but I'll try to get to it all more quickly than I have lately so you don't have to wait to find out forever. Thank you, PagfootIsBack!

Do i see wormtail slowly falling to the darkside? Anoughter great chapter =] You update really fast, keep it up! I can understand how remus was the nly one with dry eyes as he bottles up his emotions, you bring that trait out well.
Author's Response: Yes you do see him falling to the dark side. I'm trying to update as fast as possible. But that's going to be a bit harder, luckily school ends next month and I'll be able to write more. Showing Remus's lack of tears is a big plot point right now. Thanks for reading!
The stories great! Am i right on guessing that there school year is nearly over? If so are you carrying on with the story after there school years? You should add in the creation of the wolfs bane potion at some point in the story. :)
Author's Response: Yep, the school year's nearly over, but I'm going past that. There's still a number of chapters to come. Unfortunately, there's going to be nothing about the creation of the wolfsbane potion, it just doesn't fall into the timeline I have set up. Thanks for reading!
‘Thou shalt not sin’ – Bible
Sirius knows what he wants and he’s not afraid to chase it. She makes him feel more than he’s ever felt before, but getting what he wants may cause him more heartache than he ever imagined. Thus begins a thrilling game, a game of vice and virtue, of betrayal and affection, of sin and atonement.
The forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest.
No =[ You split them up again!, i was happy when they got back together. Are they going to forgive each other?
Author's Response: Unfortunately, I can't tell you what might or might not happen :D That would be silly of me.
That would have been very cruel :P It was a great story, please write more!
Author's Response: Mm, aren't you glad I love you all enough to give you a nice ending. I don't think I'm particularly good at happy endings - I much more love angsty or ambiguous endings.
Hey, thanks for the fast update, the story is great! I read the other reviews and you said your got to write this in seven chapters, could you make a sequel? update soon please :)
Author's Response: Hmm, I've heard whispers of a sequel too. We'll see :D
Is not the end is it? =[ Great chapter !
Author's Response: Glad you like :D Just the epilogue to go.
