As is probably apparent from the stories below, I'm writing again! :) Shadows of the Past isn't abandoned, but I have misplaced my notes on it (I know they're in a box, and I think I even know which room the box is in. Unfortunately, that room is full of boxes) and the plot of Much More Than A Game is affecting the next chapter of Shadows, so it's temporarily on hold.

Also, it's recently come to my attention that some of my older stories have been getting reviews lately (which I love!) Back in the day, I used to get an email when this happened to alert me to the fact that I had a new review, however, this hasn't been happening lately, so if you leave a review and don't get a response for a long time, it isn't because I don't care, just that I'm unaware. Trust me, it will make my day when I do find it. :)

MOMENTS OF BLISS by moonymaniac
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 1203]

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.

It was totally worth the wait! This line alone made it worth the wait:

“Very smooth…Mister I-can-hide-being-a-werewolf-for-over-six-years, but I can’t hide that I fancy someone.”

Eagerly awaiting the next update, Hypatia

Author's Response: Hi, Hypatia!! Ha...I was quite happy with that line, if it isn't being too bold to admit. :*) It just seemed so like Sirius, to me, and it also was meant to show how Remus' feelings for Lindi made him so crazy! LOL That whole calm cool persona shot down in flames by a woman. tehe... I'm glad you liked it. Thanks so much for telling me. Oh, and don't wait too eagerly...<.< IYKWIMAITYD. >.< LOL Hopefully it won't be quite such a long wait as this one, but I promise nothing! :*) Well, except that I'll try. Thank you for reviewing.

First of all, I'd like to say how much I love this story! I was checking my email before work and saw that one of my favourite stories had been updated. So naturally, I had to immediately read the new chapter and I love it! You've done a great job describing the various emotional states of Remus and I think it's an excellent way of showing how Sirius and Remus (eventually) will both suspect the other of being the traitor.

Eagerly awaiting the next chapter,

Author's Response: Thank you, Hypatia! I'm so glad you enjoy it. Good thing it was one of my shorter chapters if you read it before work, no? :*) Of course, I suppose not everyone gets up with barely enough time to brush their teeth before running out the door. I know some crazies who actually have a cup of coffee and read the paper first. ;) I'm so glad my hint at how they could distrust one another is working. That's very important to me, and to the story, obviously, so thank you. Hope you enjoy the next installment. :)

I love it! Especially when Remus is trying to wake her up. I also couldn't help but smile when reading Dumbledore's interaction with Remus. :) Nice job introducing Dumbledore to the hallow too!

Eagerly awaiting the next chapter,

Author's Response: Yay! I always worry about writing Dumbledore. I think he's really tricky, so if it brought a smile, (hopefully in a good way, and I chose to believe it is) I consider that a success! :D Thank you so much for reviewing, Hypatia. I really appreciate it.


At a Glance by greeneyes
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 32]

Summary: "The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches..."
The war is over, and families are still torn apart, still mourning, still grieving. But what if the prophecy hadn't applied to Harry Potter or Neville Longbottom? What if the future of the wizarding world rests in the hands of a small boy with flaming red hair and green eyes like his daddy? Does he hold the key to a bright future? This boy is all Ginny Weasley has left to remind her of his father...her husband.

This is a lovely story. I found that both Ginny and Ron were characterized really well. Their personalities had matured, yet they still were themselves. I especially enjoyed Rons description of how Harry lives on through Ginny and Jacob.

I found your interpretation of the prophecy quite interesting, not only that Harry and Neville werent the only options but also that marked as his equal could mean half-blood.

I did find it a bit too coincidental that Harry and Jacob share July 31 as their birthday and both defeated Voldemort on Halloween night, but not so much that it really took away from the story.

I found two parts somewhat confusing, one of them being the reference to the place that killed Hermione, the other being when Ron says goodbye to his parents for the last time. I would have expected that he would have said something more like, I wont be back for a very long time.

I found it quite fitting that Ginny wasnt comfortable calling her in-laws Mum and Dad but, Lily and James might have added a more personal touch than Mr and Mrs Potter. I also would have liked a bit more of a description on Molly and Arthurs graves.

Still, an excellent job overall. I really enjoyed how you took a story that began so bleakly and clearly illustrates so much pain but managed an ending with a glimpse of hope.

Reviewer: Hypatia Signed
Date: 06/09/07 Title: Chapter 1: Really Worth it?

I found your characterization excellent; from Yuns attitudes towards Paolo and her daughter, to how Paolo tries to justify his abuse. Im especially impressed with Chos inner struggle, choosing between her love for her husband and her own safety. I found it interesting that she didnt even think about how Paolos outburst at the school would show that either his drinking problem has degenerated to the extent that hes now drunk during work or that he always had a problem controlling his temper.

The only thing I found a bit odd was that Cho seemed completely shocked to discover she was three months pregnant. I would have thought she would have at least been suspicious by the three month mark. Perhaps an explanation that shed lost track of time due to the problems with Paolo would help, or making the pregnancy only be in its first or second month.

An excellent job overall and Id be very interested in reading a sequel once the baby is born, especially if her decision to stay with him changes.

Author's Response: Thankies!!! As for the three month pregnancy, it\'s just, in films women are always discovering that they are three months pregnant and they never had suspicions. Ah well. Thankies for the review!

This has a wonderful sweetness to it. I really love your portrayal of four year old Sirius; his fear of his mother, protectiveness of Regulus and love for his father. I'm also quite taken with your characterization of Orion, I have to admit I had never thought of him like that before. Excellent job!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you, Hypatia! I\'m very happy to hear you liked it, and writing a four-year-old Sirius was so much fun, I\'ll admit. He\'s just adorable, I think. As for Orion\'s characterisation, I\'m glad you felt it worked. I like character depth in my characters, and the Black family is just ripe with characters to add other dimensions to and explore a little deeper than the \"they\'re all evil\" side of things.

And thanks, once again!

I really like the way you've portrayed Nathaniel's character. Could he perhaps become the Fat Friar? You've shown an interesting perspective of not only how Muggles viewed witchcraft, but also how Wizards viewed Muggles and the Church. Well done and I look forward to your next chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks a bunch for the review! I had fun with Nathaniel and I\'m glad you enjoyed him. As a history and religion major, I jumped for joy when I saw a challenge that let me have fun with both in a HP tale. Thanks again!

I absolutely loved this: "Hermione should have finished school last year, but she was unable to attend the school. I could tell you why she wasn’t there, but that would take at least seven books."

I started laughing loudly enough that I then had to provide an explanation to the person next to me. :)

You did an awesome job characterizing Luna!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I wasn't sure that I could get away with that line, I took it out a couple of times, but it always found its way back in. Ibegan writing this over two years ago and I've been returning to it ever since in a desperate attempt to finish it. The Great Hall-iday challenge was the push I needed.

Date: 03/24/12 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue

This is an interesting prologue. I think one of my favourite things about it is that you haven't written the typical "Perfect Lily", but have given her some flaws. I would have liked to have seen more of why Mary is interested in Severus, but I'm guessing that will be in an upcoming chapter. I have to say I'm also curious as to whether Mary is a Gryffindor due to being a brave person or because she wants to be a brave person. Oh, I also really liked how you had her watch for that perfect opportunity to approach him which never came. It has a very real feel to it (and reminded me of my younger self).

Author's Response: Thanks for the early review! I know, it's just a prologue. Chapter 1 is in the queue, so I'm still waiting, too. :) I guess maybe it wasn't obvious, but Mary was roommates with Lily, so, yes, she would be a Gryffindor. This is my first story, so I'm sure there will be lots of flaws in my story! Yes, I know the feeling, too, about trying to approach someone when you're that age. It's tough being a teenager.

Awwww! This is such a sweet (well, I suppose bittersweet) piece. I think my favourite part was when Severus promised Lily that he'd keep her safe. Keep up the good work! :)

Author's Response: Why thank you, Hypatia! I'm glad to see that you enjoyed it, and happy you liked Sevrus' promise, because that's my favorite part, too. I think we all want someone to make a promise to us that we'll be safe, and by writing this scene only confirmed how humonoid Snape really is for me. :)
