Review:toomanycurls says:
This chapter is excellent! I was so excited to see a young Remus. I felt so sad for him not being sure if he'd be able to go and then so happy for him when he found out he could go. You did a great job pulling me into his melancholy then his elation and joy. The little touch about Remus brushing off his robes before his mom did it was adorable. Kind of typical for a boy his age and yet to Remus too.

I adore Mr. and Mrs. Evans. They're nearly as excited about Hogwarts as Lily is. You wrote Petunia's stubborn denial of magic and her attitude very well. I sympathize with her and yet am frustrated that she's pushing away her only sister. You did a great job not just villain-izing her (which is easy to do). I love that Mrs. Evans' name is Rose (partially because it's my first name and because it's a name I almost picked her in a story I'm working on).

Mr. Evans kind of reminds me of the muggle version of Mr. Weasley - I love that.

A happy bubble exploded when Remus and Lily met. Poor Remus almost blew his cover. Great foreshadowing with him realizing he'll have to lie a lot in school.

Mr. and Mrs. Lupin are incredible. Loving and supportive - just like I always hoped they'd be. In the few lines of dialogue between Remus and his parents I can see where he got many of his mannerisms and key behavior traits.

Author's Response: Wow! Thank you so much for the incredible review :) You have really made me smile!

I am so pleased to hear that I managed to pull you into Remus's emotions in this :) I'm glad you liked the bit about him brushing of his robes, and that you felt it was typical of Remus!

Ok, so you have a great name ;) It's my nan's name and my youngest daughters middle name - and also Lily's mum's name too now heehee But back to responding to the review...

Ah, I love that you adore Mr. and Mrs. Evans, I'm really enjoying writing them :) And you sympathise with Petunia? Yay! I really wanted to show her more vulnerable side and how things could have been difficult for her. I feel that she was not always the villain we see in the books, but that a series of events turned her that way - although, she is most definitely not an innocent party in those events! I am actually really intrigued by Petunia and her relationship with Lily. I could go on and on about my thoughts on their relationship, but I won't! I will, however, be exploring the relationship further throughout the fic :)

Haha, someone else said Mr. Evans reminded them of a muggle Mr. Weasley - this was not intentional it was just the way I found myself writing him. But I can totally see the similarities, and now I wish it had been intentional ;)

Wow, a happy bubble exploded when he met Lily?! This line really really made me smile! This meeting leads to poor Remus being in for a bit of a tough time for the next few chapters though :(

I could always see Mr. and Mrs. Lupin being very supportive of Remus. I'm happy you liked my portrayal of them :)

Again, thank you for the great review!
