Bio:
I love the Harry Potter books. I even sort of maybe very probably might like the films (I think), even though they left out Peeves. John Williams is a genius - I was sad when he stopped doing the music. Patrick Doyle is great - just not John Williams!

I love "Moments of Bliss" by Moonymaniac, it is well worth checking out.

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.

Finally Remus is getting somewhere! I am still enjoying your story a lot, but one of my friends was killed in car accident, and so I have not been on the internet much. She used to review you too - AdoresHagrid was her pseudonom.

Anyway, can't wait for the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you, Buckbeak22, I am glad to hear you are still enjoying the story. I am so sad to hear about AdoresHagrid. I very quickly started to think of her as one of my Harry Potter friends, and looked forward to her comments. I can point to two specific areas in my story that are better because of her. I know in the grand scheme of things, my fanfiction means little, but it was something we had in common and meant something to me. I will really miss her reviews.

OK... last time I upbraided you for not posting, the chapter arrived later the same day. Trying again to see if it works this time...

Author's Response: LOL! I would dearly love to be able to post the chapter right now. Wouldn\'t you be amazed? But alas, it just isn\'t going to happen. I am working on it, though. I haven\'t had a chance in so long that it took me a while to get into it today, but I finally made a little progress. Maybe I\'ll get on a good roll tomorrow. *crosses fingers* Of course, it still has to make it to the beta and formatting...it could be a little while. *grimaces* I\'m so sorry. But thanks for trying, Buckbeak22. :)

Great chapter. Hooray Reums! Finally someone noticing when a teacher is out of line *and* calling them on it. I really want the next chapter now - this one is such a teaser as it poses so many questions! One of them being - how on earth could anyone ever turn down Lupin's knight errantry???? I also like James's last line.

Author's Response: Thanks, Buckbeak22. Yes, Remus is my hero! I sometimes wonder how Lindi got put in Ravenclaw; I would drop at his feet and grovel. She may be brilliant but someone needs to tell her to come in out of the rain! Hmmm...

Ouch! Sirius is living dangerously, and so is Lindi - big surprise there. It is definitely getting darker and darker. I am almost afraid to read the next chapter! And you have set the stage beautifully for Remus to distrust Sirius and trust Peter.

Author's Response: Oh, yay...setting the stage...I knew you would see what I was doing there! :) And darker... yes, as it must. :( Thank you, Buckbeak22, though it took me ages to say it. :*) my laptop died months ago and sharing a computer with the whole family = very little access.

I am so glad you updated at last. This is one of my favourite chapters so far. I like Lindi's sense of letter writing. And I can't wait for the race between her and James.

Author's Response: *blush* Did you happen to notice that I slipped it through in under one month. *dies* I stayed up way to late, because I couldn\'t stand the thought of not updating in under a month. Last chapter was updated 17 April, this one 16 May. *fondly recalls the days when she posted about a chapter a week* *sigh* Anyway, I\'m really glad you like this one. The race comes up in the next chapter, if I don\'t get too long winded. LOL Thank you, Buckbeak22.

Do you realize we are coming up on 2 years together? Wow! 07/10/05 you left me the first review (of many) and it is, to this day, one of my all time favorite reviews. Thank you so much for all your support (and patience). :)

I really like Peter. He must have been nice, or James, Sirius and Remus wouldn't have liked him too. Lovely chapter - it just shows how misleading a map can be!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you Buckbeak22. I'm glad you like him. I feel like I'm walking a bit of a tight rope trying to hint at his flaws that we know about and that might have driven him later without making him the obvious betrayer we know him to be. Oh, how many times have I followed a map meticulously and ended up exactly lost?

Date: 03/14/07 Title: Chapter 40: Under Pressure

I do really think Lindi will forgive him...but I didn't say she wouldn't punch him on the snoot first! Anyway, is the next chapter coming? When do we find out? Can you give us a hint? Is it going to be in the next chapter, or five chapters from now, or ten, or twenty? Huh? Does Will come into the story again?

And when you name the chapter "Under Pressure" is that Remus (because of his furry problem) or you (because you are being hounded for more chapters)?

Author's Response: LOL! I\'m actually fairly far along with the next chapter. :) Unfortunately, if I don\'t get it finished tomorrow, I won\'t have a chance to get it to deanine for beta before I go out of town for a week. :( Next week is Spring Break and all. There is a chance I will finish it, but I certainly can\'t promise. Of course then, it will be after I get back from vacation before I\'ll be able to do the edit and post, but that would be better than having to wait to send it off to beta. I\'ll really try and I\'ll post another response to this to let you know for sure! Now, about when you learn about Lindi\'s reaction...ummm....ooo...nope, no hint. <.< *Muwahahahah* But I will tell you Will does come into it again. Under Pressure....*giggles* Good one, Buckbeak22!

Author's Response: I said I\'d come back with a progress report on Ch. 41, so here I am. Ch. 41 is off to my beta. :)

Couldn't Sirius just "remove" Darlene? After all, he has the expertise and is used to the fall-out flak afterwards. Couple of kisses in a broom cupboard, and she would have forgotten Remus. Congratulations to Lily - it looks like she might get Remus and Lindi together at last. I like the way she has stopped even trying to be subtle!

Author's Response: Okay Buckbeak22, you are poking holes in my plot! That does seem like something Sirius just might do, lol! But, at the same time, I can't imagine Remus would be that easy to forget, no matter what a hottie Sirius is! Remus is a hottie too! Maybe Sirius is worried that if he did that, Darlene would become seriously (pun intended) unhinged and start stalking him in a really scary way. Remus should have let them vanish her! Yes, Lily is ready for business. She strikes me as someone whose patience could only be tested for so long, she's a red head, after all. As always, thanks for reviewing.

Wonderful. As usual. I am glad Moony is finally being little more assertive!

Author's Response: Thank you, Buckbeak22. Yes, somewhere between the silence of Snape's Worst Memory and telling Sirius to sit down in Grimmauld place during Harry's introduction to the Order, Remus found his spine. I'm sure it was always there; he just needed the right insentive to use it.

Ecxellent... Reminds me of the time I gave my sister's boyfriend the "Talk". My father was overseas, and as the oldest sibling I felt it only right... He was about as embarrassed as Remus, and she got so mad at me she didn't speak to me for a week!

Great chapter as always. Thank you.

Author's Response: I knew there was something I liked about you, Buckbeak22! LOLOL :)

I thought this chapter was great. And it was nice to have a non-romantic chapter as a contrast to the next one, which I suspect will have a fair amount of kissing!

Author's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the chapter, Buckbeak22. I agree that a little non-romance is good or it would get sappy sweet. BLECH! And you know how hard kissing is for me to write! LOL

Back in October I made a prophetic comment in my review, and now look at poor flapjack88! Do you have an estimate as to when your next chapter will be up?

Author's Response: *giggles* *blushes* *feels awful* I don\'t know when it will be up, but I promise to have it submitted by tomorrow night. I still have to format and it is really long. Actually, I\'m having to submit it as two chapters because the chapter word limit for MNFF\'s system is 10,000 words. So, hopefully both parts will be accepted and you\'ll actually have two chapters to make up for the massive delay. (I had to get permission to submit them both, so thanks to VV, the wonderful Marauders Era Mod.) So, I\'m crossing my fingers. :)

Date: 07/19/07 Title: Chapter 45: No Funny Business-part two

Don't know why anyone got detention...after all they were all practicing transfiguration, and you don't say that anyone ended up in the hospital wing. McGonagall can be so over reactive sometimes.

I am getting almost as frightened as Lindi. I hope she stays well away from Greyback!

Author's Response: Good point. That McGonagall needs to lighten up sometimes. *loves stern McGonagall, especially when she\'s being oh-so cool, as she can be* ;) Greyback always made my skin crawl, but more now after DH than ever. *shivers* Thank you, Buckbeak22.

Date: 02/11/06 Title: Chapter 23: Playing Games

Excellent place to stop. And points to you for making Lindi argue about it being non specific. I was thinking it was very out-of-character for her to play the game at all, until she said that. I don't know whether I want to find out what Lindi has to hide, or whether she would shagawerewolf more now. They are being a bit cruel to both of them though, because Lindi could say "no" now, and completely devastate Remus, but if her affections were engaged, that could change. (Personal experience, although not with a werewolf.) Thank goodness you have Lily there, and she has her head screwed on all right! From the way you have written her, Lily is my favorite character so far. You can see why James is so tenacious in his persuit of her.

Author's Response: Thank you, Buckbeak22. I've heard that stories need a cliffhanger now and then and thought that would be a good place to try it. Yes, Lindi would be uncomfortable enough with this game without specifics. I think they are being rather cruel, but I don't think they see it. I think they see it as doing him a favor, really. I don't think they were the most sensitive of boys or James wouldn't have been so thick to why Lily saw a problem with his behavior. I love em, but they could be idiots! Interesting comment about her affections being engaged. Remus will have issues with that very thing in a way later and that's all I'm saying on that. "...although not with a werewolf" LOL! I'm really glad you like Lily. I don't want to make her too perfect, but I think she was probably a real prize. Thanks so much for your review.

Very funny chapter. And you have Remus all set up to believe Sirius capable of betraying James too. Very clever.

Author's Response: *tackles Buckbeak22* I thought I'd finally lost you, after all these years. I'm so glad to know you are still reading. And that is exactly what I am trying to do with dear reckless cocky Sirius. So yay.... Thank you, Buckbeak22. Thrilled to see you back.

Date: 03/14/07 Title: Chapter 40: Under Pressure

One other small question - since it wasn't Lily, who was it in the chapter "Lindi's Problem" who complained to Dumbledore about Adamson? Was it a red herring, or was it Jeffrey Daniels, or is the answer still going to become clear? Was it Will? Or am I focused on something totally unimportant?

Author's Response: <.< Oh...you are killing me! *absolutely loves speculation* *searches for muzzle* All I will say is that this will come up again later. >.> *grin*

Date: 08/03/06 Title: Chapter 32: Where There's a Will

Well, Lindi certainly deserved what she got..however excited she was it was very rag mannered not to introduce Will to her friends, especially after she had let Remus pay for her drink. I think Remus should have just gone back to bed and got up on the other side; what a day!

Author's Response: Well, I definitely see whose side you are on, Buckbeak22. LOL Lindi gets no sympathy here. Rag mannered, eh? Is that a British term? I like it. I might use it actually, if thatís okay. It was rather thoughtless of her, Iíll have to admit. But you are right; Remus should have just gone back to bed, instead of compounding his headache! Poor Remus.

Oh, and I wanted to say that I havenít adjusted the Prophet article due to a system glitch with the site. If I edit, all of my paragraph spacing will get messed up. :( Iím pretty sure they are looking into it and are trying to correct the problem. And I plan on fixing that ďbloodyĒ thing, but for now, Iím too lazy to go in and have to manually remove all the extra break tags that will be put in if I edit. *blush* Thank you, Buckbeak22.

Something tells me it won't be long before Lily knows everything... I thought the way you have Peter's career in deception starting is very good. Lovely chapter, I really enjoyed it.

Author's Response: Thank you, Buckbeak22, I\'m glad you liked it. Lily is a clever girl, isn\'t she? ;) And I have realized that hinting at Peter\'s betrayal is a little tricky when we all know it is coming. I want to be subtle, but when the readers know...how subtle can it be? LOL.
