Review:CambAngst says:
You are an exceedingly clever and gifted storyteller! Some of what I thought I knew at the end of the last chapter was affirmed, some of it was tweaked a bit and some of it was refuted outright. Through it all, this stunningly detailed writing style of yours shone through.

The way that you threw Tonks into the deep end -- quite literally -- of things seemed like an apt way to find yourself entering the afterlife. There was so much struggle and confusion. She's trying to find the surface. Remus is there and then he isn't. Suddenly Crabbe is threatening to drown her. Through it all, she is consumed with her worries for Teddy. It was a very gripping scene and also very easy to connect with emotionally.

I really liked the way that you handled Remus's visit to the forest with Harry and the others. That one came as a complete surprise when he explained it to her, but it made for a really nice connection to the story as well as a great way for the dead folks to get a bit more information about what was happening in the world of the living.

Your characterization of the Lupins' relationship was great. The way that they talk at one another. The way that they pretend to have an argument of substance when in truth they love one another too much to be truly angry... it was spot-on. And the decision that Remus makes in life that he must follow her because he can't go on without her was perfect characterization for him.

Poor Crabbe. OK, I don't really feel badly for him, but why do I get the feeling that he's being set up to die twice in the span of a month? Never mind. He really deserves no less.

I find myself feeling really intrigued by the significance of the station attendants. Is there a difference between the man from the previous chapter and the young woman from this one?

Overall, still superbly written. You have quite a knack for drawing people in. I'm honestly surprised that this story has so many reviews. That isn't at all because it doesn't deserve them, either. I'm surprised that so many people could stop reading for long enough to write anything down! Til next time...

Author's Response: Eee, thank you!

The Lupins have become my favorite pairing to write about, I think, because they haven't been romanticized as much as a lot of other pairings (like Lily and James, for example). They're an odd couple. A lot of people don't like them because they don't think Tonks and Remus have anything in common, and because of the age gap, etc. But I think they're perfect for each other so I used this story to stand on my soapbox and shout about that. XD

I tried to feel bad for Crabbe in this chapter, I really did. I wanted to be unbiased, but can't really get over him trying to murder Harry, Ron, and Hermione with Fiendfyre. I think he deserves all the confusion he felt here, all the terror of going somewhere alien.

I'm so flattered by what you said about being surprised people could stop long enough to leave a review! Thank you so much - I can't tell you how appreciative I am to hear such a wonderful thing. Thank you for reading and reviewing. :)
