wow, this was an intense read. I read it all the way through from beginning to end, and thought the plot was wonderful. I loved seeing Remus throughout all this, see him grow from being so afraid all the time to knowing there was hope for the future. We never got to see him so happy in the books, and it was great to see that, even if it was brief. There were a few spelling errors too, some the same sounding word, but meaning different things so it won't come up on spell check. I saw how the story has 63 favorites, and 62 reviews. mine is #63 :)
I wish the story ended happier, even with Teddy years later or something, thinking of his parents, maybe with Harry or his grandmother. but this was more on what happened in between Harry's year in hiding, so I guess it could be a fitting end... still incredibly sad though. But, I guess that's war for you. I did a similar ending with my With Sirius Black story, that was about the last 10 years of his life in a one shot (rather long, but still lol) I'd love your opinion of it if you're interested :)
great job on this though, it must have been rough to write with all the difficulties going on in their lives.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! First of all, thank you for alerting me to the spelling mistakes, I will definately go back and try and correct them (sometimes it's just hard to get them all in Word's spell-check, and also it's hard to proof-read something you've written yourself, so I think I will get someone else to proof it for me, that might help!). I know you wanted the story to end on a happier note, I half-debated throwing in a chapter about Teddy afterwards or something, but then decided not too, mostly because this story is a tragedy and I really wanted to capture it as so. I guess it was pretty rough writing this, as you said, but I wrote it more to justify Lupin. I know many people were angry at the way he wanted to leave Tonks and (the then unborn) Teddy to go with Harry. I just wanted to show (my reasoning anyway) why he did that. He's not a bad guy at all, he is a very good man, and he thought he was doing the right thing, but just needed the fight with Harry to show him he wasn't. Also, I was most upset that Lupin and Tonks died in the books, Lupin is my favourite character and he didn't even get a death scene, so I wanted to give him one and so this fic came into being. Anyway, I will definately take a look at your Sirius fic, it sounds interesting, I haven't read many Sirius stories (I mostly stick to Lupin) so I look forward to it and I will of course leave a review. Thanks a mil (again) for your review, glad you liked my story
