Well, I read all of this in one sitting and I told myself I'd review, so here I am! =D Judging by what your other reviewers said, the Remus/Sirius pairing came as a surprise. Don't worry, I picked up the hints you threw across your chapters, especially the conversation Eleanor overheard. I just had a feeling... :-)

I really liked Eleanor - she's definitely different. I love that you didn't make her pretty or beautiful. And I really admire the flaws you gave her, like her naivety. Brilliant! As I was reading through, what really got me even more than Eleanor or Sirius was Lily (weird, I know). Nobody ever portrays Lily as the annoying, popular leader of a clique as we saw through Eleanor's eyes somewhere in the beginning.

And the ending itself was lovely. I did not see the Eleanor/Peter pairing coming at all, but it felt so natural, like it was just meant to be.

"Not a step down. More like a step across."
I really liked that. :]

I have so much fun reading your writing! You always make it so natural and entertaining! You can expect to see me all over your other stories. XD

Author's Response: Oh wow, thank you for this! It's great that you enjoyed the story and were able to read it in one go (it's not really that long, I guess, but all the same). And thank you also for taking the time to review! It's much appreciated. :D

You're one of the minority to have caught on, it seems, but I'm glad you picked up on the hints. They were fun to include, just to see who would go for the bait. I suppose it's so rare for Sirius/OCs to take that route that people just didn't expect it to actually happen.

I'm really glad that you liked Eleanor. She was interesting to create and develop throughout this story. Not to mention that it was hilarious to make her so naive; she was very much in the dark for much of the story, which made it exciting to write this. :) Making Eleanor such a social reject also helped transform the canon characters. While Lily was actually a caring person, as one may expect, from Eleanor's point of view, Lily was the perfect queen bee. A lot of this story has to do with perception: who sees what and what they do with that knowledge. Eleanor was unfortunately not very perceptive, but that also makes her more realistic, I guess.

Yay! You liked the ending! Some people weren't too pleased that Peter got the girl, but he has to sometimes, poor guy. ;)

Again, thank you for this review! I really appreciate hearing from you. :D
