Bio:
Okay... so I am an old guy - 50 -

I was introduced to the world of Harry Potter when my son asked for the books to read. That was back at book three.

Trying to be a responsible parent I thought I had better read them as well just to know what my son was getting into, and of course now I got completely hooked.

I have been working on my major story ( Harry Potter and the Heart of the Hero) now for a while and even though I have taken some major breaks, I do intend to finish it.


If you aren't already reading it, please give it a read and see what you think. I am a review hound, so of course I want to know everyone's opinion.

Phases of the Moon by BlackClaude
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 144]

Summary: In Remus Lupin's fifth year at Hogwarts, his devoted friends finally master the complex Animagus spell, beginning the adventures they will remember for the rest of their lives. But Remus must also face prejudice in the rising war, a test of loyalty versus love, and the danger of his dark secret being revealed.

Pet Peeve Disclaimer: Peter is not worthless, Lily does not have three friends who fall for the Marauders, and no one calls Remus "Remy."

Okay, I am definitely reading further. This first chapter really has drawn me in. I love the dynamic you create between the four marauders. I have never really given it too much thought as I haven't yet read any marauder era fics. I love what you are doing with Wormtail so far, making him a bit of a clown, but fitting securely with the other three. From what we know from J.K.R's books, he did in fact fit this way, but to see it written into form is very pleasing.

I am no grammarian so I cannot really offer much in the way of technical critique, though I did see a few typos, not enough to trouble me particularly in the reading, but you could go through at your leisure sometime and try to catch them yourself.

I am anxious to keep reading, and I'll set you more reviews as I progress. Great start.

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I\'m glad you came by. :) You have sharper eyes than me, because I looked through and couldn\'t find any of my typos. Can you give me a hint where they are? I\'ll go mad knowing they\'re out there! (Yes, I\'m a bit of a grammar freak.) :)

Very nice, quite vivid in emotion. I hope you continue to plumb the depths of Remus' emotional journey through lycanthropy. I am fascinated by this aspect of the character, I always have been, though in the actual books I figured it was too complicated to get into. I am loving the way you are developing the young marauders. I am going to watch for their subtle maturation as your story develops.

Thanks for a wonderful read. I'll keep reading as I have the time. You've definitely made it to my favorites list.

Author's Response: Thanks for the great review! Yep, you will be seeing more of Remus\'s coping with lycanthropy throughout the story, and especially in the newest chapter that I\'m working on now. My original focus for this fic was Remus and a certain red-haired girl who shows up in chapter three, but I\'m finding myself more interested in the werewolf aspect as I\'ve gone along. :) Thanks again for reviewing, I really appreciate it!

Sorry for the late review... This chapter really came together very well. I like the changes! I think the mood and atmosphere are very well preserved now in the beginning scenes - Bravo...


I'll tell you what I a looking forward to... Not that it is things even within the scope of you breakdowns. I am looking forward to more of James and his character development- more of the interaction between the wolf and the anamagi, and more of where you are going with Lily.

I know you haven't heard anything from me for a while (chalk it up to a crazy summer), but I am still here... just an e-mail away. Keep up the great work!

It's definitely getting better and better. I must confess this is the first marauders era fic I have read, and I am really enjoying the dynamic you create between the four boys.

I will keep reading as I can and continue to enjoy. Oh! having Sirius piss and Bellatrix was grand fun. And the DADA class was wonderful stuff. Can;t wait to get truly caught up so I can await each new chapter with eager anticipation.

Author's Response: Thanks so much! As always, I appreciate your reviewing. :)

Date: 03/01/07 Title: Chapter 8: The Moonlit Battle

Wow! I love the confrontation... I have so many questions though I don't know where to begin. Your interpretation of the werewolf is non-traditional... or perhaps it is merely non-Hollywood. I think perhaps I will wait until you post another chapter or two and just see if you answer my questions without my having to ask them.
I really enjoyed that you switched from Remus to the wolf and gave us the wolf's perspective. I can't wait to see what you do with this in the future.
I will of course look forward to the next chapter. And if you ever want opinion on anything feel free to contact me in the forums or directly through e-mail.
It is wonderful... keep it up.

Author's Response: Oooh, I\'m intrigued by what your questions are, but chapter nine is almost done, so I\'ll wait and see. :) As for my werewolf portrayal, I don\'t know a lot about standard lore, so I\'ve basically taken JKR\'s interpretation and made up my own from there. Sometimes I fear I\'m writing inconsistencies, such as the fact that his friends will have no Bill-like complications from their bites, but JKR\'s said nothing of the Marauders going through that in canon, so I\'ll go with it. :) Thank you for all your opinions, praise, critiques, etc. When I need help with my sticky parts, I\'ll definitely seek your advice!

Date: 02/25/07 Title: Chapter 7: Confrontation

Oh wonderful! Finally a glint of what exactly brings Lily around. Not that the boys shouldn't meet her half way... but I was becoming worried that the conflicting views of Lily and the boys were on the edge of irreconcilable. I loved lily's frustration in the face of Slughorn's nonchalant reaction to the conflict in the hall. And I of course adored the scene with the tea cup which followed.

I wish I could offer more practical - technical advice, but I think your knowledge of grammar and mechanics exceeds my own.

You have really given me insight to Remus' character that I had just never thought all that much about before. As you have seen with my own story... most of my thoughts at present are dealing with the book seven era. I do think however that when I get to dealing a little more with Lupin's character, as I have some plans to do, I will have to credit your writing with giving me a more in-depth understanding of his character and his motivations. Thanks for that.


One more chapter and I will be caught up, so I can join the ranks of those eagerly awaiting the next chapter. Very good work.


Author's Response: Wow, I\'m honored that you would look to my characterization for your own story! That\'s probably the best compliment I could receive, so thank you! And yes, Lily did have to show a little bit of a vindictive streak in her. ;) As we\'ve seen in OotP, fifth year doesn\'t end on a good note with her and the Marauders, but I wanted to show a bit of hope for seventh year. Thank you for your wonderful review!

Date: 03/03/07 Title: Chapter 8: The Moonlit Battle

The issue of bites, was in fact one of my questions. My memory of the books was that the werewolf was not violent toward animals, only toward humans, and so the Marauders in their Anamagus forms could keep Lupin company without fear of attack...

But I would have to do some canon research to be sure of my interpretation. I really like what you are doing... but yes when Sirius was bitten as a dog my first thought was... "But, he would contract lycanthropy, wouldn't he? because he would still be bitten after transformation. I was sort of hoping you would explain why this is not so?

If one assumes that an Anamagus becomes the subject animal all the way down to the genetic level, you might assume that animals simply have some natural immunity to lycanthropy therefore if they maintain their animal form for a length of time appropriate for their immune systems to kill off all of the lycanthropy virus, they would then be able to transform without fear of contracting the disease.
But then again, lycanthropy may be a magically based condition and not transformed by a conventional virus, but a magical virus that is keyed to magic potential, so that only latent Wizards and Witches would be able to become Werewolves. Personally I find that an interesting idea, but it is not addressed in canon. Perhaps - becoming an Anamagus is an effective immunization against lycanthropy? If that were so, most Witches and Wizards would attempt to become Anamagi... but it is an interesting thought.

Anyway... I am looking forward to your explanation.


Author's Response:
Excellent questions! I had to look it up just now in PoA to remember the specifics, and I actually find the canon a little confusing. Remus does say,\"A werewolf is only a danger to people,\" and also \"Sirius and James transformed into large enough animals, they were able to keep a werewolf in check.\" Now, I always remembered that part as meaning that a werewolf is only a danger to people because it can\'t pass lycanthropy to an animal, and also that Sirius and James transforming into large animals was important because they had to defend themselves against him. However, re-reading it now, it does sound as if a werewolf is only aggressive toward humans, and that the \"keeping in check\" part was important for keeping him from running off outside, not for defense. So, oops... maybe. :) But I can live with that, because Remus-wolf will certainly calm down a bit with his animal companions in coming chapters, since he does say that his mind became less wolfish with them. I\'ll just use my artistic license to say that it took a bit of getting used to first. As for the lycanthropy part, that\'s where it gets confusing. I agree that it really does seem as if they should be in danger, since Sirius clearly still has the bites after transforming back. There is a small bit of canon that backs it up, though. When Sirius transforms to keep Lupin from attacking everyone after leaving the Shrieking Shack, it says \"They were locked, jaw to jaw, claws ripping at each other\" and then \"Black was bleeding; there were gashes across his muzzle and back.\" I\'m assuming that the muzzle gashes were from Remus biting him when they were jaw to jaw, so I also have to assume that something about being bitten while in animal form renders the lycanthropy harmless. I lean more towards the magical curse theory than the virus theory, so I imagine that the curse is passed at the time of the bite but it doesn\'t take hold because Sirius is an animal, and that\'s the end of it. By the time Sirius transforms back, the curse of the bite is long gone, off wherever other misfired spells go. That\'s a long bit of rationalization that readers will not have gone through, though, so I will certainly slip in some exposition into the next chapter. Thanks for pointing that out to me!

Date: 02/14/07 Title: Chapter 12: You're What?

Wonderful Chapter. It was pain to go through the long waiting period, but hopefully the Mods have got the glitches worked out.

It was great to see Hermione show up in this chapter and help with the potion, though I don;t know how it would work for her to visit the school out of the blue like that? I would have thought she would need permission, and a valid reason for the visit, so I kept looking for some explanation to that effect. Also, as was mentioned in a previous review I see, I felt that "wigged out" just didn't feel terribly Hermioneish. Still, small things aside, it was a wonderful chapter and fun development in the story... what I would have to regard as a character growth experience.

If I have never mentioned it before, this story is the very first Fan-Fic that I ever read when I discovered Mugglenet many months ago, and it remains one of my favorites, just because I am such a H/G R/Hr shipper. Please keep going with it, as I can't wait until they actually tell the Weasley's the truth! And I firmly believe that despite their possible intention to just have a public ceremony at a later date - the truth will come out..

Anyway, thanks for this story... I love it.

And if you are ever bored and would like to check out my stories... I would dearly love to hear what you think of my humble efforts.

Keep up the good work!

 

Summary: This story is about Harry's struggle...his struggle to obey his mind when his heart is screaming out in protest .

It's about Ginny's secrets, her aching heart, and where her loyalty lies.
Mainly, this story is about friends, those you can trust and those who can't trust you.

Reviews are fun and easy! So don't shy away from stating your opinion...trust me, it feeds the fire so I'm not left out in the cold! ;)

Okay... I have been reading your story and not saying a word... It is time to break that terrible habit. I am loving your story,,, though it is sort of a love hate relationship becasue I feel that the whole Volcency thing makes Ginny too overtly powerful and in a small way distracts from Harry being the key character. I must say though that you have managed it well and that is what keeps me coming back for more.... (Like in when are they going to appove this chapter!)
I love that you have put Ron and Hermione together as well.
If you have time... I would love to have you read my stories and get your reaction. I have been having a tough summer with a state to state move and I have been having a hard time getting back to the writing... with your health bout, I suspect you can understand. Anyway I would appreciate a kick in the right direction if you can make the time to look up my story "HP And the Heart of the Hero."
Anyway, I have been really enjoying your story and am looking forwward to more of it. Keep up the good work. Thanks.


Author's Response: Hi there!!!! WELCOME NEW REVIEWER!!!! I\'m so happy you broke that terrible habit as well!!!! Don\'t you see how thrilled I get when I get a review!?!? ANYHOO, Ginny and Volcency, especially her powers are extremely important for this story\'s plot line though you won\'t know why until later. As for Ron and Hermione...they soooo belong together! So you\'re story is up too? I will certainly look it up! When I finally get a moment of peace to read!!!! Oh and I love reading reviews so that\'ll be good for you!!! Toodles for now~

 

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.

Wonderful, what a nice way to begin a Lupin tale. I look forward to getting into your story as I can find time.

The Album entries are very effective for moving us through Remus' back story and I really enjoy the way you are portraying him, as a kind and gentle soul.

I will try to make time to continue reading ASAP.

Author's Response: *grins* You know, I nearly choked when I saw this review. I\'m suddenly very conscious of every cliché/stereotypical thing I\'ve used in this story. LOL

I\'m glad you are enjoying my portrayal of Remus (I hope you still are, as it has taken forever for me to respond). I do see him as the kindest and gentlest soul, which is why I love him so much. Even when I have him messing up, I hope that still comes through. Thank you, Jeograph. I hope to hear more of your thoughts on my take on the rest of the Marauders *bites nails* LOL.

Hey, okay, now I know I told you I wasn’t reading any fanfics while I was working on my own, but I finished my “Beyond Harry” story and now I have to focus on some other things before I get back to writing “Heart of the Hero.” So, when I saw that you had more posted I decided to break my own rule and read it through. I am very glad I did, because I have enjoyed everything you have posted, but I have to say, kindly, YOU SUCK! I enjoyed it very much, and now I have to totally rethink things I was planning to write myself, namely, the whole “heroes” wedding scenario. Thankfully I have plenty of chapters to evolve in another direction.
I love the way you push conflict between the characters, and manage to pull out deep inner reflection. Hermione’s vows for instance I thought were absolutely spot on. Now I understand why you get on me about her dialogue.
I loved that you brought Jacobs back in the end and had him come clean with his wife after what he said to Harry. I saw that his role was pivotal from the beginning and I just knew he was going to end up knowing something about the Wizarding world. Having him end up a Squib was just perfect, and having him have lead his own double life was an added parallel for the whole story.
There is lot’s more I could say I suppose, but the most important comment is that I enjoyed it very much and I’ll be looking for future installments. Very nice work!


Author's Response: Wow, I love long reviews, and considering the work I put into this one, it\'s much appreciated. Let\'s see, okay, the wedding. An interesting tidbit of trivia is that wedding, the last two chapters of this fic, are the first bit of fanfiction I had written in my head EVER. Before right here, and One Good Day, I had this scene laid out. I think it was because I had read so many wedding fics, and I just really wanted to do it right, and so yeah, that was definitely big for me. I\'m glad you liked Hermione\'s vows. That part was really frustrating to me because I just couldn\'t get them. I mean, I seriously almost wrote a one shot about them writing the vows just so that I could get in character enough to write them myself, it was just tough. With Ron I kind of always had a rough sketch, but with Hermione, that was tough, and then it kind of hit me, she\'s going to be a little long winded and a little bit over the top, and everything\'s still going to be pretty good because it\'s coming from her heart, but it\'s still going to be Hermioneish. and then the whole day counting thing hit me, and I just really ell in love with that idea. And Jacobs... Everyone loves Jacobs. What about Ernie? Man I loved Ernie, favorite original character ever, but everyone loves Jacobs. Ah, it still puts a smile on my face. Actually, having Jacobs be a squib kind of shocked me to be honest. I don\'t think I made that realization until I started writing chapter 3, and I needed someone to actually jog Harry out of it. I think originally I was going to just have Jacobs be Jacobs, but then the squib thing came about, and there you go. He is, he\'s a good parallel for Harry in that they\'re both running and at somem point they need to stand up and just go home. I have gotten a few people say how much they liked him, so I\'m thinking about putting him in Part III just for a bit part or something. Not sure, yet how I\'m gonna, but just because everyone likes him so, I think we\'re going to see at least a little more of our man Jacobs before this whole thing is through. Well, thanks for the super terrific review, I appreciate it.

I know where the story ends, and most the major steps that are needed to get there, it\'s just a matter of picking the scenes I can write and writing them. Some of it is awrench, there was more to putting Romilda Vane in Ginny\'s defense class than most of you will know. But other than that, I mean I don\'t know what else to say.

Damn dude… You are back! That is great! I was quite worried about you when I got your final e-mail early in the summer. Didn’t know what I was going to do without you as a Beta reader, and as you can see if you’ve kept up on my story I haven’t written a word for a while. ~ As far as your story goes… I will say I am totally engrossed and loving it. The biggest thing that is bothering me is Collin. There have been several times when I felt like he should have the sense to publicly break up with Ginny to end the farce. Obviously they have managed to quell the rumors, so why keep up the charade… and what’s more… I think he really does like her and he must be going through hell himself. But, I know there is a reason and you will get to it in your own time. The scene at the cemetery was very nice and hit my emote button full on. I am so looking forward to more! ~ Okay… back to me for a minute. I need your help… to get me back on track; life has been not so good. I have moved, and I’ll save details for another time. Anyway, I want to get back to the writing and have been having a hard time of it, could you look up my story and give it a catch up review? You Beta-ed the first few chapters but there is more there now that I don’t know if you have even seen. Let alone how you feel about the developments? Your assessment and opinion would be very helpful. In any case the bottom line is that it is great to see you back and writing… I am trying to get there myself (back and writing that is) so I hope to see much more from you… and if you have it in you, I could sure use your Beta services again?

Author's Response: Hey man. Alright, I\'ll deal with business first. I\'m really sorry but I ain\'t really beta reading for anyone right now. Don\'t know if I ever will again, really. I mean, I\'m not out of the woods by a long shot with the personal stuff in my life, I just needed to write, so I guess what you\'re reading is more therapy and catharsis than anything else. I\'m really sorry about that, but I just can\'t do it. Maybe when I\'m done writing what I have to write, I will be, and maybe I think I will, but I just can\'t. I\'m sorry. Okay, to the story, you touch on so many things, and really, I would respond to them, but a lot of the things you bring up get answered in the next chapter, which I put in queue just the other day, so you shouldn\'t have long to wait on that. You are the second person to bring up the idea of having Colin doing a public break up. I have two reasons, both of which will be made clear later. One, which I will not give any details upon right now, is just because I have a plan. The other is that the rumors weren\'t passive. There is a conspirator behind them who is, as we speak, looking for a whole so she can start them up again. I appreciate your concern, though, and feel free to email me anytime if for no other reason than to chat, and I can catch you up. sorry life\'s gotten chaotic for you too. It happens. And while I can\'t beta for you anymore, if I get time and energy, I\'ll check out what ya got going and see about giving you at least some cursory input, cool? Thanks man.

Damn Dude! Great chapter. I so had your number on this right down to Collin waiting for her in the hallway. Still reading it in your words was really worth the ride. The dirty-old-man in me so wanted them to shag like rabbits, but the Dad in me on the other hand was so proud of Harry! Ginny too! I am so looking forward to whatever comes next. I think I have some idea, but it seems like we often differ on the smaller details.
Anyway, I totally understand about the Beta reading… I’ll find a way to muddle through without your input. Still… a review? Keep up the great story guy… I’ll definitely keep reading it. Looking so forward to the next chapter.


Author's Response: Did you really? Well, I guess if you read me long enough and pay attention you could have predicted much of what would happen. I guess I\'ll just ahve to keep you on your toes for the last few chapters to make up for it. Thanks.

Very nice. I am not a great fan of poetry usually, but I really enjoyed the sentiment here. Well done.
