Review:Moonyxluna says:
I think my favorite part was when you had Harry relate Teddy's misjudgment of his father's character to when he himself misjudged James, and how it all sort of came around full circle that Harry was the one giving reassurance this time.

Of course, that's not to say everything else wasn't fantastic. I loved all of the little details throughout Teddy's slow realization, and the little bit of magic he showed as he repaired Remus' childhood picture at the end.

And then the end of the chapter.. I managed to hold myself together here but Teddy apologizing to Remus' picture was almost too much.

I forgot to mention this in the last review, but I like how you mentioned Andromeda’s resemblance to Bellatrix at the time of Harry's uncertainty of her, and how it wasn't mentioned before. It was a bit symbolic in a way (to me, at least) that he only sees the 'Black' coming out of her when she's doing something Harry doesn't approve of.

Really, just blown away by how accurate and how well put together this story is. Fantastic work on it!

Author's Response: I am glad that you liked the relation between Teddy doubting his father, and Harry doubting his. I think in the books one of the things Harry has to grapple with as he grows up is that sometimes even the best of people, the people you really admire and look up to, make mistakes and do bad things. Harry had this with his dad and Sirius in the pensieve, with Dumbledore, and with Remus trying to abandon his family. I think that one of the lessons Harry had to learn in order to grow up was that sometimes good people do bad things. You can hold a person up on a grand pedestal, but you can't knock a person off a pedestal because of one bad-deed or one mistake, because then you will just spend your life in a room full of empty pedestals, if I am making any sense! Human beings, even the best of them, make mistakes, and Harry learnt that and now he is passing that lesson onto Teddy.

I am so glad you picked up on Andromeda resembling Bellatrix when she does things Harry doesn't like. I was sort of blaming her upbringing as to why she disliked Remus so much. People are socially constructed, and even though she escaped the fate of Bellatrix and Narcissa, I imagine that some of the things she was taught when she was young stuck, ie, how werewolves were "filthy half-breeds", to use Umbridge's phrase.

Again, thanks so much for reading and reviewing, it really means a lot, so thanks so much! :)
