Happy HPFFSAD again!

Wow - the first section of this was chilling and terrifying. I don't know if anyone ever stops to think about what this experience was like for Remus as a small boy - or what it was like for his parents. What an absolutely haunting picture!

The second section was a perfect Marauder scene. You know, I never really considered that fact about how their Animagus forms excluded Peter from the late night fun by default, him being a very small animal and all. That was very well thought out, and it really reinforces their group dynamic. So does the part about everybody except Remus being eager for the full moon. It makes me think about the scene in OotP when Sirius says he wishes it were the full moon, and Remus responds, "You might." Though there's no doubt they care about Remus, they're a bit insensitive in that respect. But boyish down to the core, which is what I adore about them.

You wrote Teddy very well - no complaints there! He's sentimental about his father in the same way that Harry was about his own, which makes perfect sense to me.

Awesome one-shot!

PS: Van Halen ftw. :-)

Author's Response: I have a 5 year old son, and I can tell you, I think it would be absolutely impossible to sit and listen to your young child scream in agony and not be able to do a thing about it. Haunting is a good word for it.

I feel bad for Peter. I think he was excluded from a lot of things, not so much because they didn't like him, but for reasons beyond anyone's control (such as that, or in my novel, he has an overbearing mother that won't even let him celebrate his birthday with his friends). Anyway, I'm so glad you liked the scene, from what I've gotten from other people so far it's been the least favourite. I'm not sure if that's because it was typical and boring, or because they just found the other sections to be better.

Glad you liked Teddy :) He was lots of fun and I should probably try to write him again at some point.
