I'm here with some more super-super-late QTR reviews! And I'm so glad I've read this, because it was just so wonderful!

All your descriptions were just so pulling, it put me in the scene so much more than most descriptions. The emotion was very vivid and real, and you managed to get depth and all the layers of confusion, worry, etc and keep attention perfectly! Nothing was too long or short, and it just put me into the scene and gave us access to Remus' feeling so well.

You portrayed Remus and Sirirus SO WELL, too! Often, when people write them as a pairing, they become terribly OOC - but this felt much more like it was adding to canon, simply recounting a missing moment instead of coming up with a whole new story to them; it felt so effortless, and I barely noticed that I was reading it, which is really rare! It's often painfully obvious when lines have been rewritten and edited, but everything was just so smooth.

Everything you wrote was so realistic, too - no glossing over what boys are like, and it made all the emotions so much more raw and real because the backdrop was so much uglier. Remus' disinterest in playboy-esque magazines and how he realised what he was noticing revealed the same truth to the readers as it did to Remus, and it put us in there with his struggles perfectly.

I also liked how you contrasted Remus' dreams with his reality, because it added more to his desire and hopes, and made it seem all the more bittersweet. It put us a lot more in tune with Remus, too, because he was still new to the scene even though he'd been sort-of planning it for so long. It gave a more special quality to it, and I really liked that.

I'll admit that I was a bit confused about Severus' sudden appearance at first! But that ended up adding to the overall effect of Remus' shattered dreams, the cold water over everything that left him stunned, because it all became painfully clear by the end. It was a horrible but clever plot twist, and I'm glad in a way that the after-effects of the prank weren't felt; we're left to imagine the pain, and it's more effective that duplicating his previous feelings with more layers.

This was just so brilliant! I do hope you write more Sirius/Remus because I enjoyed this a lot :)
