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.
Ahhh!! Another chapter well worth the wait! And, it came at the perfect time, just as my brutal work week of 12-hour days draws to an end. I'm always excited when you post a new chapter, but now, as always, I'm left wanting to read another 100,000 words!
I really liked the newest twist of your story, that is: Lindi losing her memories of Remus, not to mention the cameo by my namesake; I thank you for that.
I know how difficult it can be to stay with a project for this long, so I'll try to leave more reviews as encouragement. You and your story truly deserve them. I can't wait until the next installment! I don't know what I'll do during the wait!......I often find myself wishing that writing could be as fast as reading and reading as time consuming as writing.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much, Evan Rosier. I really appreciate that. I love that last statement! (Though if my reading was as time consuming as my writing, I'd still be reading Fun with Dick and Jane.) :*)
Yikes...a week of 12 hour days...How did you have energy to read? Much less another 100,000 words? O.O Gosh, I hope it doesn't take that much longer, but knowing me....>.< lol. Your welcome for the cameo. For such a wonderful review, maybe I'll be able to fit him in some more. I do like him. <.< Even if he is a villain. >.> :)
I love your story. I've been reading and following the progress of MoB for over a year. I've left only a couple reviews but your story deserves several times that number. Well, I just wanted to root you on! I eagerly await the next installment. Good Luck!
Author's Response: Thank you so very much, Evan Rosier! I could use the rooting! :*D I'm so glad to know you are hanging in there with me. It really helps. I saw this the other night and decided to wait and reply until I could say, finally, the next installment is posted! *wipes brow* I hope you enjoy it. Oh, and your username...<.< Mr. Rosier makes an appearance. Just remember, he's one of the bad guys. LOL But he is one of my favorite ones. ;) Thank you again for the encouragement.
Two Wands Up! Another well written, albeit short, chapter. I sense that this chapter might be a pivot point in the story. Could the plot be thickening? Could times be becoming darker (well, I guess we all know that they have to, eventually)? I can't wait for the chapter in which Lindi will find out about Moony's furry little problem. And I have to say that I admire your patience as a writer; I would have had Remus tell Lindi about his condition in the first or second chapter. But that's probably why I don't post my stories online....I really enjoyed this chapter. You wrote it very well.
By the way, if I don't comment on your story during the next several months, don't take it personally. I'll be out of the country and I'm not sure whether I'll have internet access. But I might copy and paste your story on a word document and upload it to a digital reader....Then I'll be ready for several months worth of updates!!
Author's Response: Oh, my curiosity is peaked. *nosey* I'd ask where you are going, but it isn't any of my business. My first thought is military, but whatever you are going for, be safe. I'm honored that you would even consider uploading my story. :*) Thanks so much for the heads-up that you'll be away. As much as I try not to take disappearances personally, I do get sad, and worry that I've done something that offends, or worse, that something has happened to you all. I don't do that as much anymore, because it seems even more likely that readers are just sick of the waits and lose interest. :( I've almost lost interest a number of times, so I fully understand. *sigh* But anyway, take care and I look forward to hearing from you when you are back. Hopefully, there will be more than one update, though lately, several months’ worth doesn’t amount to more than a couple. :*/ *shamed*
On to the review: I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter. My patience...I'm not sure if I'd call it patience or my obsession with every tiny detail of Remus' life. I've always taken forever to tell a story, even about nothing. lol But, thank you for the compliment. I do hope the plot is thickening; I intend for it to be. :*) And yes, also darkening. In fact, I've been considering getting a new story banner for it. Much as I love the one I currently have (though I can't post it in my profile >.<) I think it isn't representative of this next part of the story. I also am feeling a little like I've misrepresented the story to those who are more fans of the pranking fun-loving Marauders. The first chapters were so much lighter, though I did try to hint at serious things ie horror of Remus' transformations, importance of keeping it hidden, war building outside, etc...still, there was a lot of fluff and silliness (love bites! sheesh!!) and the title is about bliss....well only moments of it. <.< But as you say, it is Marauders; it eventually had to get darker. :( So yes, I'm rambling, but I hope readers aren't expecting a lot of flower blossom/French kiss, and love bite moments. Maybe I should change the banner and the title so as not to be accused of false advertising. >.< But I’m glad you aren’t hating the turn. Thank you so much for reviewing. I will miss you while you are gone. MoB’s a little lonely these days. ;) Do be careful and I hope you have a good trip.
Thank you so much for updating! I love your story. Unfortunately, I must resist reading the newest chapter so I have time to finish a paper that's due in a couple of hours. But I thought I should tell how great your story is, because I haven't yet and a "great job" is long overdue! Good job. Keep up the good work and update soon!
Author's Response: :) Thank you, Evan Rosier. Love your user name, btw. He is probably my favorite little known character to use and if I ever wrote a non-Marauder centric story, I would probably use him, though it would probably be a dark/angsty type story. *has no plans to do this, not even a baby plot bunny, of course, as MoB is still far from finished. >.<* Anyway, I'm really glad to know you are reading and enjoying the story. I hope your paper did well and you enjoyed the new chapter when or if you have had the chance to read it. And sorry for the inconvenient timing. :*) Update should be *fairly* soon. *hopes*
Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
Another BEAUtiful chapter. Two wands up!
Summary: [WIP] Post-HBP. Eleven years after the end of the war, Hermione finds herself in a delicate situation when her only son leaves for Hogwarts and threatens her most guarded secret: that he’s not only a Granger, but also a Snape! SS/HG.
YES!!!! The truth has been revealed! Now let the fun begin.
