ah, so sorry it's taken me so long to review, i've been running behind, and usually i pop when i've got a new chapter to post for moonlight (wink, wink). but you're always so quick to post a review for my stories i always feel a bit bad that i'm not as quick about it with yours.

nevertheless, at long last my review for this chapter is in:

i love how you describe Remus' initial excitement about where to go first. and i thought you wrote the wand-choosing scene very well. i also liked where they got ice cream on them all and laughed.

i also liked the interlude in the bookshop, where remus (ignoring the warning sign, of course) crosses over into the dark arts section. it coincides with his feelings about his being a werewolf contrasting with how society sees him, and it's also kind of a foreshadowing of his one year as a DADA teacher (which i can't wait for your take on it if you decide to take the story that far). and it makes sense too that remus wants to know all he can about the werewolf that bit him. spot on characterization.

i also thought the ending was lovely and bittersweet. so very well done overall. and i seriously cannot wait to meet the marauders. ;)

i also liked the owl-buying scene. I think Scops owls are SOOO cute. :) actually i'm quite fond of all owls.

side note, i always thought it was funny that ollivander would ask which is the wand arm when presumably the kid hasn't held a wand before and wouldn't really know? lol. also i thought that was a cool bit of info from pottermore about willow wands, which reminds me, i need to get back on there! i haven't been on in ages and i'm only still at chapter one in book 1. :P

but thanks again for another awesome chapter! 10/10

Author's Response: No worries, you're grand sure, I know you're super busy. Don't worry I will get to Moonlight (probably tomorrow though) - can't wait, just I'm posting a new chapter to this fic tonight, so I need to give it another read over to make sure it's alright. But I will get to Moonlight as soon as I can - cannot wait, I had a sneaky look at the summaries of the two chapters you've put up and I'm just dying to read it. :-)

I am glad you liked the scene in the wandshop and I agree with you that it was odd that Ollivander asks young wizards who have never held a wand before which is their wand arm. It was probably be better to ask if they were right or left handed, but maybe that's a bit too Muggle for Ollivander though! :-)

I am glad you liked the vein of Remus trying to find out more about Greyback, that will feature a lot more later on. :-)

I am also glad you are looking forward to the Marauders, I'm looking forward to sharing those chapters with you guys too! I've done my best with them, so I just hope it's enough to do justice to the characters!

I love Scops owls too - I just loved Ron's owl, Pigwidgeon in the books, he was just so cute and amusing. You can't help but love him!

Yes, definitely get back on Pottermore - they've opened up the first four chapters of Chamber of Secrets too, which are pretty awesome!

Thanks again for the review! I really appreciate it! Can't wait to read Moonlight now :)
