It's amazing how people's perceptions of other people's perceptions of them can be so wrong/ muddled up. Seeing how Rosmerta thought Lupin had made something of his life when he thought he was useless was really sad. His self-esteem needs a real shake up! Luckily Tonks changes it for him in the end.

"Well, Rosie, I canít keep a job because Iím an abomination of mankind.If I were to die tomorrow, nobody would notice.Ē

No no no! That whole paragraph almost made me cry because I wanted to tell him it's not true! It's horrible how he looks back and thinks of what he could've been. I think the worst part is how he what it would've been like if he still had all three of his best friends. Especially as he's the one who survives the longest to see them all die in the end.

I'll stop wittering on now. :) A very simple but emotional story that was a little bit heartbreaking to read!

I want to give Lupin a hug.

10/10

Author's Response: What is it with me and my terrible response time for your reviews?? I think it's because your reviews are always so thoughtful, I want to make sure to leave a good enough response. :-)

Anyway, I think you got exactly what I was going for, which was how each of them looks at the other with admiration, but at the same time they each have doubts about their own self-worth.

I know, I always feel very sad when I think about what Remus had to go through. He always struck me as a very lonely man, and it's heartbreaking. I don't know where I got the idea of pairing him with Rosmerta, or the idea of making her so angsty when she's normally a vibrant character, but once I got the idea in my head I couldn't get it out!

Thank you for the lovely review!!
