This was a really lovely one-shot, your descriptions are so beautiful and they convey this heavy sadness that permeates this piece. It really breaks my heart, smashes it actually. I've always found that the tales of how the Marauders fell the saddest. You've done a really great job at telling each of their stories and how they were haunted by their memories and the tree. It helped bring the stories together. I think the only thing that could have made this flow better together was to have a Peter story. I only say that because you began this with the four of them and it seemed like there was a gapping hole in the story where his should have come.

However, I did really loved how this progressed. How the beginning was of the Marauders and their desperate attempts to stick together and protect one another. Then you move the one shot into different individual points of time, part way through the first war with James and Lily to the beginning of the second and finally the end. The structure of it flowed really nicely together even though we have four different narrators they all somehow fit together seamlessly. It came down to your choice of where you placed the narratives, it wouldn't have been the same obviously if Remus's and Harry's were switched in time.

I loved your characterizations in each section and how they all seem so real and alive. I like how there is this gap between Ginny and Harry because he can't let go and can't let her in completely until then. I've always imagined their relationship to be like that, especially at the beginning. I loved the weakness you had in Remus, his need for approval and for others to help him off his knees. It was so heart wrenchingly sad to read that bit because you see how much he needed the three of them. The other two also had similarly beautiful ways of describing their characterizations and life.

This is such a great one-shot, you've done a really great job at capturing this big moments of their life. :D
