Hello darling! I'm here to review this interesting looking piece. You have many tempting stories on your profile but I am sucker for anything related to the First Wizarding War and of course casualties is a big part of that war.

Lily: her part just breathes sweetness, gentleness, happiness. I like how you compared her to an angel but not the angel of salvation type, the one who is all dressed in white and descending upon a cloud to make judgement, but rather a more earthly angel. A human being with angelical features and personality of fire. An angel that you could love without fear or doubt that she existed. A well made description judging by how little we actually know about her.

James: lovable, courageous, sweet James. The arrogant boy who grew into a stable, kind and thoughtful man.

Remus: Remus's part is one of my two best favourites from your story. He is my favourite Marauder and the one who my heart goes to the most (along with Sirius). I cannot even bare to imagine how his childhood must have been, followed by his teen years and adulthood as a werewolf. Shunned, looked upon with fear and disgust, not welcomed anywhere. It's just horrible, horrible. I like how in just a few words you managed to portray his strong bonds with his friends. The Marauders were such a big part of his life, such an important part that helped him survive his solitude and self-loathing. My favourite quote of this story belongs to his excerpt: "Because that was what his dad was - a man with more heart than this earth knew what to do with.". That just broke my heart to pieces!

Sirius: fiery, passionate, loyal Sirius. His life was on a level of tragedy up close with that of Remus'. He was arrogant as a student. Arrogant and foolish and self-righteous and annoying but what he got after Hogwarts was much more, too much than he deserved because underneath that ill chosen armor of his lay a good natured boy. A loyal heart that loved and cherished his friends more than himself. When I remember that everyone mistrusted him and considered him, HIM of all people the responsible for James and Lily's deaths I feel like crying buckets. His life was so unfair. When he finally, after all his torture had a new chance with Harry he died. So unfair...

Peter: Peter is my second favourite part. I always had mixed feelings for him. On one side I loath him for what he does, for the cowardly manner how he betrays James and Lily but on the other side I feel that he's too easily judged. Don't get me wrong, I despise traitors. They make me feel sick. But isn't it possible to just stop for a moment, for a brief moment and just TRY to understand what he felt? Try and figure out his reasons before jumping the hate bandwagon? He's way to hastily judged...

All in all a very sad but beautiful piece!

Author's Response: Hi m'dear! I loved, loved how you split this review into the characters and your analysis of each was just awesome.

For me, the story of the Marauders will always be the saddest of HP. Yes, terrible thing happened in Harry's era. We lost Fred. We lost Tonks... and of course we lost our final Marauder. But their story as a whole just breaks my heart like nothing else can. How four boys so full of life and so strong together can end up where they did. How one can turn their back on them, how one can spend most of his life believing that the other committed this terrible act, and most of all how Sirius had to sit in Azkaban and live through torture after torture for the death of two people he'd never have hurt. It's just.. ugh. :(

Sad but beautiful is exactly what I feel about them, so that is the best compliment you could give. Thank you so much for this amazing review ♥
