Oooh, I love that quote you used at the beginning.

Oh, Remus. I just want to hug him. I can tell that Minerva has a particular fondness for Remus, and it's not hard to understand why. He's like other boys his age in that he can be a bit impulsive, quick to please his friends, and appreciates a good laugh. But he's gone through so much more than his friends can imagine, and it's made him older. It's made him wiser. He processes information quickly and makes decisions slowly, and I admire him for it. I just freaking love your characterizations! It's not fair that you nail every single one of them right on the head! I'm so envious.

I don't think it's a mistake that Remus outlived every single one of his old friends. He's cautious and practiced. His judgment isn't always flawless, but he was a survivor. And when he was ultimately killed, he died a hero. He was such a quiet and unassuming man that I don't think he would ever consider himself a hero, but I think Minerva would. And now I'm wondering what was running through Minerva's mind when she saw generations of her students running through the Hogwarts corridors, dueling against Death Eaters. Fighting alongside Remus as well as students who'd freshly turned seventeen... *shudder* Talk about survivors. Minerva's a machine, man.

I just keep analyzing the characters, don't I.

ANYWAY~ Loved this chapter, as usual, and I hope you update soon! I very much enjoyed reading. :)

Author's Response: It's a good quote to live by. :)

I think we as readers have a lot of sympathy for Remus. The poor guy has gone through so much and lost a lot in his life. I want to hug him all the time! I love writing Minerva and Remus together. She definitely thinks of all of them fondly, but at least in my fics, she likes to sit down and drink tea with Remus all the time. ;)

Haha, well, thanks. I've heard fantastic things about your characterizations so it pleases me beyond belief that you like my characters so much. I'm actually really awed by all your comments on this story.

It's sad that he's outlived all of his friends, but you make great observations about his character and I see that too - the reservations, the cautiousness. It's kept him alive.

I don't even know how she did it. She's seen so many of her students die in both wars and yet she still remains steady, level-headed. Machine, indeed.

I'm glad you loved it. I hope to update soon too. Peter's next on my list. :)
