This was an outstanding completion of a wonderful story.

I think if I had the time I could write an essay on the theme of forgiveness and its overarching importance to this story. I loved the way your brought this theme back again and again -- at the end, with Remus, with Peter (the portrait of damnation). And, interestingly, in this afterlife, it is not God but other people who do the forgiving. Calls to mind the Sartre line about Hell being other people -- only here, it seems that the nature of one's eternity, be it heaven or hell, is in the hands (or largely in the hands) of other people.

And with Peter, I wondered whether there is eventually a cost for refusing to forgive him? After a thousand years, will James and Sirius and Lily (and presumably Snape) get tired of seeing him at their respective doors, begging forgiveness, and acknowledge that he's paid his debt?

You've set up such an interesting Afterlife that I continue to wonder about it.

The Peter sequence, the Remus part -- both beautifully written.

And it is heartening to think off all these people spending eternity with the ones they love the most.

This is beautifully written, original, with wonderful dialogue that conforms to character (notwithstanding the peculiar situation in which the characters find themselves), great descriptions, finely articulated and deeply felt emotions, and a lot of thought.

Oh. And for a reader who is fond of Snape as a character, I liked that the ending gave him the girl. Even if he was dead and it happened offstage. 10/10
