Hi, here for the 12 days of reviewing and yay for it being Remus/Sirius!

I thought that this was a really interesting opening with concentrating on Remusí dad as opposed to leaping straight into the story because Iíve never seen that done before but it was a new and fun aspect to consider so I really liked that. I really liked your characterisation of him too because he showed lots of Remusí traits such as rationality and wanting to do the best for people, but with slight twists such as extra confidence.

Greyback was another interesting one too because he seemed a lot more rational and human than what I expected. JK always described him as savage and brutal so to see that he wanted to take part in something which wasnít related to killing was really unexpected but I liked that change in him. I guess here it still takes place a while before the present events so it will be interesting to watch his character and see whether he gets more horrifying or not.

The ominous feel to the story was practically everywhere and it was so horrible! I could just sense Greybackís thoughts when picking up that photo and knowing what he wanted to do to poor old Remus, and I really dread to think about what happens next.

A great start to the story!

Author's Response: Hi hi, Kiana!!! :-D Thank you so much for reviewing this story - it's been in need of a little loving! ^.^

I'm so glad you liked the set-up! I really wanted to give Remus a more firm platform as to how it all began and I'm glad it worked for you! And I love hearing that you see Remus reflected in his father. I've always been of the opinion that Remus' dad played a huge role in Remus' life, so it's great to see you've drawn those connections!

I really wanted to give Greyback in this scene as much control as I thought it would be possible for him to muster up, considering he was really hoping to be put into the trial. I think Greyback once truly hated being a werewolf and wanted out if it were possible, but I think this sparked a moment of change; of Greyback learning to use his condition to take others out worse than ever and actually seemingly enjoying the monster in him. I just imagine he started out a bit softer (though never quite good or decent), and I'm glad it worked for you!

Ah, yay!!! I'm so, so, so thrilled to hear you say that! That sort of ominous, unspoken undercurrent is exactly what I was hoping would take place here! The photo moment was what I really wanted to stand out because I wanted people to see exactly when it clicked in Greyback's head to attack poor Remus and I'm so happy you pointed it out! :-D

Thank you so much again for taking the time to leave this review! It's so wonderful and I'm just thrilled that you enjoyed it! *hugs*
