Review:Liana says:
Wonderful story. I thought you had the Head Boy and Head Girl give some meaningful advice. At some point you will make friends who you will keep forever. I loved Lily's advice--not to be afraid to fail. One can always learn from failure. One time, I think it was 2008, I was watching, via computer, the graduation from my graduate school. JK Rowling was giving the Alumni Address and I think she received an Honorary Doctorate of Letters. As I recall, one of her key words of advice was to not be afraid of failure--to embrace it and learn from it and use it to move forward. You may not have known of that speech but it is interesting that you had Lily use the concept of failure as a main tenet of her speech. Remus seemed very aware that he was starting on a new part of his life. I think that sometimes graduates, especially from high school, don't know that within a few short years classmates will move on and if you don't move with them you end up stuck in the past. Anyway, great story. I've got a couple of other stories to finish and I look forward to your new one. I hope you don't wait too long to write sequels for this story and for your Albus story. Thanks for all your hard work.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I had such feels writing James's speech because, in the end, Peter betrays them all and James dies and Sirius and Remus think each other are the traitor and it's just awful.

I actually did get the idea for Lily's speech from the one JKR gave at Harvard. It really is such good advice! JKR's was, of course, much better than the one I wrote for Lily.

I think Remus was more aware than the rest of them that he was starting a new part of his life, just because he lived so sheltered at Hogwarts compared to how he'd be treated in the real world. But, then again, with the war, I think all of them had a pretty good grasp of the fact that they were moving on. I think you're right, though, about being stuck in the past.

Aw, I hope it doesn't take me too long, either, but I'm so busy and I want to work on original fic, too. We'll see! Thanks so much for reading and reviewing! :)
