What made this chapter work, for me, were the smallest details you included. I'm always a fan of little moments in time adding up in order to give a fuller portrait of a character, and you did that very, very well here. I loved the part where you talked about how Remus and Tonks could run and dodge without losing each others' hands, and the story of how he and Sirius turned Butterbeer into candles in order to sneak them back into the castle. They were both brief and sweet, a great combination.

I also liked the very end, where Remus entered his own version of "King's Cross," this time a castle, where he would switch over from the living world to another. Yet, for such a gloomy prospect, it was not an entirely sad story. You showed us a full, happy life, and gave Remus hope in the form of watching over his son with Tonks.

I think you captured Remus's character nicely here, from his protective instincts to his old worries and pains to his life as a werewolf. You included images of all his favorite people, as his life literally flashed before his eyes. Honestly, if we all relived our happiest moments before our death, that would be a nice way to go. Great job here.

Author's Response: It's great you liked the details because that is what this one-shot was mostly about. How details build up your life, "an eternity caught in a second" to quote. I loved writing them because they showed how despite all, he lived, and am glad you appreciated them :)

If you read the second chapter, you'll see I think each person should have a different way to death. It's great you liked Remus's and his characterization!

Thanks for reading and reviewing, your reviews are lovely!
