Hello! For the Eighth Day of the Twelve Days of Reviewing, I am reviewing this story! :)

I thought that this was beautiful and sad all at the same time. You captured Lupin as the wolf very well. I saw everything that was happening in vivid detail, which is absolutely brilliant. You painted this marvelous picture in my head in less than 1,500 words!

As for the prompt of family reunions, I liked that this one was very unorthodox. Rather than a family gathering together to celebrate a homecoming for the holidays, this one involves a much more painful sort of reunion. Lupin deserted his human form for a day, only to come back sick and frail. I can't even imagine how much pain he was in, and how terrible his parents felt about it.

This is a remarkable one-shot! I absolutely love it. Good luck in the Duel!

Author's Response: Hi! Thank you so much for your review - and I'm so sorry it's taken me over a year to respond to it!

Ahh, I'm glad you liked my characterisation of Lupin. He's my favourite character in the series (barring Luna), but I've always been scared to write him because I'm terrified of not doing him justice!

I'm also glad you liked the unorthodox take on the prompt - I personally have always had conflicted feelings about Christmas as a family time, as my parents are divorced and I'm not close to much of my family. I wanted to reflect that ambivalence in my response! My other plan was to write a story from the perspective of Molly about having to cope with such a large and dynamic family, and the sacrifices she has to make as a mother, but I didn't feel like I had the life experience to make it good :P

Thank you so much!! :D ♥ ♥ ♥
