I know you intended this to be Sirius-centric but, honestly, I found myself more drawn to the relationship between Remus and Sirius. The small moments between them, the brief explanations of their actions toward each other, was so heartfelt. It drew my attention away from the actual plot of the story but in a very, very good way. I found myself looking for more between them - how these two long time friends were trying to help each other cope with their new world and yet give each other space at the same time. I loved their relationship as you depicted it here (whether it was intended or not) and how they would allow each other the freedom to grieve and yet still protect each others "secrets" or "memories" as well.

I know my review probably isn't very constructive since my mind made me focus on something completely different but, honestly, that's a true compliment to you as a writer. Many stories are only surface deep and, intentional or not, that you are able to weave an underlying thread through a chapter that makes your readers re-read everything more carefully is a great talent to have. Excellent job.

Author's Response: Usually when this happens, I just pretend like I knew what I was doing all along and was totally aware and intended for the underlying issues to shine through. This time, though, I'll admit that I never thought anyone could read more into this than what I wrote it for.

I have to say that I'm quite happy that you have found something other than what I intended in the story. I enjoyed writing the parts with Remus and how they relate to each other alone in that big house. I'm really happy that you found so much in their actions towards each other - it was not, perhaps, the point of this one shot, but I do think it's an important part of it.

Thanks for reviewing, Linda, the compliments are lovely and caused even myself to look at it in a different way!
