Review:Remus says:
Hey there!

Perelandra from the forums.

I love Remus-centric fics. Specially then they deal with Lily and James's death. I really like how you pointed out that he felt left out, even by Peter.

The imagery in this is great. I managed to picture everything in my head. The feeling of sadness and Remus's own feelings of detachment. Actually, Remus reminds me of someone that's there in body, watching the action but is not there mentally and in spirit. He's in his own world, mourning his friends in his own way.

It always makes me very sad/upset that everyone thought that he was the traitor. He must've lived with the guilt for a long time for not seeing Sirius's supposed guilt. You did a fantastic job at portraying emotions without making me reach for the tissue box. I think the emotion of jealousy was the best. I mean, he's jealous of Petunia the woman who would've been happy to give him Harry in a heartbeat. Never thought about it but it makes a lot of sense.

I spotted a typo:

In the line that reads "Peter isn't even getting funeral" --think you're missing an 'a' after 'getting'.

Anyway, overall this was a great one-shot. Thanks for letting me read it! I sure love me some Remus stories.

Until next time

Author's Response: Hi Rosie!

I'm really glad that you liked the imagery and that you could picture it, as I'm trying to incorporate more into my work as I tend to forget about it. Yeah I kinda had that idea of Remus not fully being there as he would be too wrapped in his grieving to notice much else.

I think that's one of things which saddens me most throughout the series as it's just so tragic. I'm glad that you liked his emotions, as I wasn't too sure about them myself. I never thought about him feeling jealously, but when I began writing it I thought I had to include Harry into it and seemed best to include jealously with it.

Thank you for pointing out the typo, I always managed to miss the odd one or two :P

Thank you for this great review, I'm so glad that you liked it!
