|Review:||The Last Marauder says:|
FINALLY, an update. This makes me so happy! ;-)
Anyway, to the review, wow this chapter was fantastic. It was really dark and very chilling. I thought you got Greyback's character spot on. He was really brilliant, evil, violent, insane in ways, great stuff. I loved the idea about burying the wands so as to abandon that life (the wizard one) and instead properly and fully embrace the wolf.
I loved this line:
"Remus was watching the sky with a stony expression - so similar to a man awaiting an old friend after a long dispute." - it was just a great way of phrasing everything, you know?
I loved the little flash-back to their conversation while they were collecting water. I loved that joke, "Dora, I'm being serious", with the retort "That's funny, I thought you were Remus." It made me laugh a good bit. It was such a Sirius things to say and I liked that Tonks's took it up herself. I also liked how it had painful memories for Remus too, because Sirius was dead. Oh yeah, on that point, I'm a little confused, which book is this set in again? Half-Blood Prince I presume?
I liked the plan of escape for Tonks, she was to use the pebble as a portkey and get to safety. Very clever. Then when that failed I honestly could think of no way out for her, I thought she was going to be bitten for sure or something, but that would make his story AU then, wouldn't it?
I loved how Tonks escaped, it was really tense, because I honestly wasn't sure if she would make it or not, and I loved that she choose The Burrow instead of her Mum's house or her own place. That was just really nice.
I loved how you are capturing life among the werewolves, it's ridiculously interesting and I can't get enough of it really. It seems very plausable and realistic!
Anyway, another fantastic chapter, 10/10, please update soon! PRETTY PLEASE, and more of "Mischief Managed" as well, please! :-)
Author's Response: Hey!
I'm so sorry for the lateness of my replies (and the new chapter of MM!) - I've had quite a lot of RL stuff to deal with!
Your reviews always, without fail, make me smile. Thank you! Woo! Greyback was one of those characters I hadn't really though much about until it came to writing him, and the character seemed already complete! I'm really glad you think this sticks with canon. :D
Aw thanks! This story is set (so far) in the summer before Sixth Year. Harry has yet to arrive at the Burrow after meeting Slughorn. :)
Hehe! Yey! I think that's my favourite comment so far! :D I love to keep readers on edge and wondering what could happen next :P Yep, this is definitely going to stay 100% canon. ;)
Once again, thank you so much for your reviews and ongoing support with my stories. I'm studying creative writing now at University (it's incredible!) which will hopefully mean I'll have more time to write what I like! Keira :)
