Review:The Pirate Girl says:
Aww, that was lovely, very poetic. And by lovely I mean that, despite the 'downer' type topic, you gave a really hopeful view of death. I really enjoyed it. I was a massive fan of Remus and Tonks and was obviously heart broken that J.K. chose to sacrifice them in the face of literary symmetry. But I thought you portrayed Remus last moments wonderfully. You captured that slight melancholy, depressed outlook he had upon his life. In some ways, it made his death almost seem quite merciful, y'know? Like he didn't have to suffer anymore.

Oh but, just so you know, I noticed a little spelling mistake. End of the third paragraph (not including the lyrics) you've put 'squirmish' instead of skirmish. And my only other little criticism is that I kinda wished you'd mentioned the death eaters who killed the two of them. J.K.Rowling mentioned in a interview that Antonin Dolohov murdered Remus, and Bellatrix killed Tonks; I reckon this could have been interesting to show. But then again, I can understand why didn't. I mean, I loved the fact you wrote in he died helping students and that it took five death eaters to overpower him.

Anyway, yeah, I thought it was a good one-shot, nice work :)

Author's Response: Thank you again!! It's lovely to see a familiar reviewer. I'm slightly surprised to see a review for this story since it is an older one, but very grateful nonetheless. I'm happy that you enjoyed this.

Thanks for pointing out that little typo! I hate those. And as for the identity of Remus' murderer, as I said, this is an older fic that was written before I was aware of JK's interview. Though I know now, I am happy with this the way it is... there is something heroic about being overpowered by so many and I'm glad you enjoyed the slightly AU detail.
