My summary for this chapter is "really love" (I might write that a few times during the review). I read this while I was on my phone so my review will probably be a bit more general than usual.

Lily's aptitude for potions is really well written. I like that she felt better about being able to learn magic after figuring out that she has her own strengths and is about the same off as people from wizarding families. I really love that James and Sirius were motivated to work harder just to not be worse than Lily and Snape.

Remus' self-separation from the other three boys is quite sad (understandable but still :'(). You've established that Sirius is a bit bleh about Remus. I'm curious how they'll gell together (Looking forward to reading that!!) It warms my heart to think of James as wanting to see the best in Remus despite his cold social behavior. It reminds me of Harry a bit (and it's nice to see that Harry didn't get his niceness just from Lily). I do love the ego James has about people not being able to help liking them.

The astronomy scene - amazing. Remus' anxiety at being so close to the full moon and dread that the moon had been pointed out (as it might draw a connection to the fact that he's ill when it's full). I like that Peter is also concerned about Remus missing out. I might have to give Sirius some stern looks regarding his attitude towards Remus though. X-( It's really sweet that Remus and Peter are forming a kind of friendship. I also love that Peter does have an aptitude in something.

Remus' reflection on the lessons that week was quite brilliant. We see him as an adult who is rather accomplished at most spells (just not potions) and it's sweet to see him at square one and struggling.

I really love the battle between sensible Remus and 11 year old Remus. It's too sad that sensible Remus always wins. Ah man, his melancholy at going to McGonagall's office was almost too much (it made me sad for him).

The scene with McGonagall taking Remus to the Shrieking Shack is incredible. I love the detail and thought you put into how he's getting there and the precautions they're taking. The awkwardness McGonagall has when she's trying to comfort him is so sweet. You've shown the rarely seen softer side of her while making it really believable and palpable.

Remus' transformation was amazing. The way he missed his mom broke my heart into pieces. I'm guessing this was his first transformation not being close to his parents and that had to be really difficult. You kind of made me tear up when it got 'I love you, Remus' and he's mid-transformation. The way you describe him while being transformed is awesome too. It's interesting and lively while (which is hard to do with a character that can't speak).

Ending the chapter with James and Sirius getting back from detention was a really lighthearted way to wrap up. I hope they notice in the morning that their dorm mate is gone. ^_^

So, I'm at chapter 6 of 8... when is 9 coming? :)

Author's Response: Hi Rose, so I spent ages writing a super long response to this totally amazing review that made me squee like a fangirl and look like the Cheshire Cat. But when trying to submit the response it said I had exceeded the 4000 character limit and so could not submit it. I had no idea what bits of the response to leave out so I will PM you the full response and just leave you this short one here -

Thankyou so much for making my whole entire week with this awesome review!! You are amazing!!
