Hey it's patronus_charm from the review tag!
I really loved the titles of the characters, as it was nice to try and guess how they relate to each of them, and decipher them to give you clues about what the description below would be about!
I also have to say your description was wonderful, and you did a great job, I particularly liked Lily's description, as you painted a really nice image of her, and she sounded exactly like someone who you would want to be friends with!
And the part where you mentioned about James saying I do to Lily, was lovely, as I think out of all the series that is possible the most romantic moment, as he's been wanting to say that for forever, and now he finally gets to, it just made my heart glow.
I also liked how you made the narrator ambigous as you were never really sure about who it was, and I thought that was a great idea, as it represents the facelessness of war, which relates to the story well, as they're casualties of it. And I thought this title was great, well I'm on it, as that's what they all really are, and I always found that part of the story extremely sad, as they basically all died for the same cause, and not a happy one, of old age, but in battle.
The bit about Tonks and Teddy being possible the best gift for Lupin, nearly had me tearing up, as that was just so lovely, and you could see how much he cared for them, and think his and Tonk's death was one of the worst tradegies of the whole books, as it was just cruel of JK, as we'd already had the orphaned boy of war in the form of Harry, but I guess the purpose of Teddy was to show how much nicer his life was.
Overall I thought this was story was wonderful, and beautifully written, and I'm so glad I came across as it was just amazing really! Thanks for such a great read, Kiana :D
Author's Response: I'm so happy you liked those titles!! It was fun to try and figure out the best thing that described them all. Lily's was easy with the Meadow, and I always see James as the one that makes sure everyone gets through things whole and safe, like a lighthouse getting ships into harbor. Remus is the heart of it all. Loving so much and needing to be loved just as desperately. Sirius... the intoxicating, dangerous, but incredible storm that you want so bad to watch but sometimes it gets too powerful that you have to step from the window... and Peter.. the Marauder that was lost long ago. I just love this whole bunch so much, I want to scoop them up and hug them, haha.
The ambiguous narrator won't be for everyone, a few people have already pointed out that they don't love it, so I'm extremely happy that you do ♥ I never really thought about it representing the facelessness of the war, but your absolutely right. Let's pretend I did that on purpose ;)
I agree with Tonks and Remus's death :(. We already lost everyone of the Marauders, and Remus finally found happiness. I just couldn't believe she took him away too. But at least she took both of them together and not just Tonks, that would have absolutely destroyed him :(
Okay, I've blabbered on long enough, thank you so much for this incredible review ♥
