Sorry about my long hiatus. I am going to try to read more often! This chapter was so intense! Everything has changed now...it's a bit scary. And extremely sad. No more Sirius for awhile, I expect...which I admit depresses me. This did answer a few questions I've had, closed a few gaps. It's remarkable how detailed you are, and so thorough, with those tiny details you mention throughout the story, and then the way you end up closing the gaps seamlessly. Brilliant.Author's Response: Thank you! :) I'm very happy you thought so much of this story to come back! :)
This was a very intense chapter. Ugh, it was so awful to write. Honestly, the worst. You might see Sirius ;) He's so much fun to write, though. Report Review
This is the MOST genius thing I've ever read! Like seriously XDAuthor's Response: Thank you. That was a very fun chapter to write. Report Review
I'm gonna be so sad when this story is over! I loved this chapter!Author's Response: Thank you! :) Don't be too sad, there will be more to come. ;) Report Review
Ooooh I get it. Prudence is Sirius's daughter? Interesting.Author's Response: She is, very much so. :) Report Review
Aw, does Sirius Black like Althea? Because that's what it sounds like. Guys who are mean to girls ALWAYS usually like them. HahaAuthor's Response: Does he? Hmm... ;) It would make sense of a lot of things, wouldn't it? Report Review
Aw! Cute! I like how Remus stuttered. It made me smile. You really captured the idea of teenage love, there. :)Author's Response: Thank you! I do like Althea and Remus together. It is that young love. *sigh* Report Review
I got asked if I was okay from laughing during the middle part over the World's Greatest Teacher mug. I like the mystery you're adding to this by putting pieces together. Its interesting.Author's Response: Ha! I'm glad you liked that part. I do find myself smirking when I write. That was one of the moments I found myself smirking. Report Review
The last part made me laugh. You're really good if you can make your reader seriously despire Sirius for the moment that he's in there. Normally I love him, but I felt purely infuriated. Great job!Author's Response: The actions of eleven-year-old Sirius will make sense in a future chapter. Let's just say his teasing was egged on by James. I don't think Sirius was expecting that from Althea, do you? ;) Report Review
Ooooh! Is Prudence Remus's daughter! How cute! Who are her adopted parents?Author's Response: Hmmm.
You'll learn who her adoptive parents are in a future chapter. Report Review
Oooh, I really like Sorting stories! I find it very interesting that Lily says the Hat immediately sorts you, though Althea thought it was a long time. I had never thought about it before, but I guess that's right, that really is how it sorts.Author's Response: Thank you! :) I'm glad you liked the way I portrayed the Sorting. Report Review
I sort of feel bad for her...but I can also tell that something bad may be coming. Great story!Author's Response: Thank you! :) It is a bit dark for an eleven-year-old, isn't it? Lots of uncertainty ahead...lots of questions that chapter brings. Report Review
I sort of stumbled on this, and was like, "WOW, 62 chapters?"
I like this suspenseful beginning, so I'm going to continue on reading.Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, 62 chapters, it is very long.
I'm glad you like the beginning and I hope my writing keeps you reading! :) Report Review
how long do you think the story will be? like how many chapters? i never want it to end haha!Author's Response: Hahahaha! :)
I have seven more chapters...I think ;) Report Review
Please don't ever abandon this story! I am constantly checking to see if you've added more chapters or not. I'm hooked. My favorite story I've read so far and I've been a fan of this site for years.Author's Response: Thank you! :)
I love that you're enjoying this story so much. I've sent the next chapter for validation a day or two ago. This story is finished and I'm just waiting upload all the chapters. ;) Report Review
great chapter! short but fits prefectly with the storyAuthor's Response: Thank you! :) Yes, it is a very short chapter, but necessary to show how Althea became less of the rageball, and how Althea and Remus have come to be where they are. Report Review
Just wanted to let you know that your story is brilliant. Have been reading and even rereading for awhile now, so yes. =) Hope that the next chapter comes soon!Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading! Rereading? Wow! This story is so long! I'm glad it is still exciting and interesting to you. :) It makes me happy.
I've posted the next chapter for validation. :) Report Review
Absolutely brilliant. Seamless blend between J.K. Rowling's work and your own.Author's Response: Thank you very much! It is a challenge sometimes to keep this story within the confines her her set world; however, I'm pleased you've found it so seamless. Report Review

...Here We Go Again by Demi Lovato fits this story really well.Author's Response: *hangs head* I had to find it on youtube as I'd never heard the song. It does fit very well. I think it describes the relationship of Althea and Remus very well. He frustrates her. Also, Sirius and Althea to some extent.
I'm partial to "Boys on the Radio" by Hole. Although, I think Elvis Costello's (I imagine Remus as a HUGE Costello fan) "Alison" perfectly describes Remus's thoughts on Althea in the 1980s.
In truth, funny you mention a song, for I named Althea while I was writing this story listening to the Grateful Dead. The song "Althea" came on (I had a name I wasn't happy with at the time) and I immediately changed it. Also, Lovelace's poem, "To Althea..." is one of my favorite poems.
this story is so fantastic! one of the best stories ive read...the plot is so intricate and the details are so spot on!
this really is a wonderful story and should be recognized way more than it has been thus far!Author's Response: Thank you! :) I'm glad you feel so strongly about the story and enjoy it so much! Report Review
These "current day" chapters have such a saddness to them. It is difficult to see Althea go through such heartbreak after everything she has already been through. Granted, you have hinted that she has much much more to go through.
Are you going to explain how Snape found out about Prudence or are you going to keep it mysterious? I can see either way fitting within the story.
And I can't help it. I keep rooting for Remus and Althea to get together. You meantioned before that it is not meant to be, but it is so obvious that Remus cares so deeply for Althea. I swear I can feel all of the different character's emotions.
Thanks again for all of the time you have put into this story. It really shows!
orangezauberAuthor's Response: Thank you! :)
It is difficult writing the "current day" chapters as I don't want to give too much away. There is definite sadness to them.
Ah, Snape. Oh, there is so much I want to tell! Bah! There will be bits and pieces of how Snape knows what he knows.
Remus does care very deeply for Althea, and Althea cares very deeply for him; however, will it ever be at the same time? What they have, it's very comfortable.
Whoa!! I dont think Althea is going completely mad, just a little nutty... It's because of Azkaban. 10/10 for sure...Author's Response: Thank you.
She's becoming unhinged. Report Review
Another great chapter!
I don't want to bore you with yet another review from me so I will keep this brief. This was a fantastic chapter and I am glad to see that we are finally able to see the darker side of Althea's life. It wasn't the pure rage that drove her mad. It started off as an accident and drove her mad from there (at least that is how it appears so far).
Brilliant once again!
orangezauberAuthor's Response: Thank you! Gah, I can't believe I didn't answer this either! I am so sorry.
I very much enjoy your comments on this story.
No, it wasn't pure rage, it was a split second decision. I could be considered an accident. Report Review
