I'll have six or seven wonderfully amazing stories to read, but I always check for this one first. Does that accurately describe my love for this story? Haha great chappie as usual can't wait for the next one!

Author's Response: :') Thank you so much for this lovely review! I'm glad you're enjoying the story, next chapter should be up sometime in the next week or two!

Review #32, by oldnumberseven  Fifteen: A Sudden Brightness

9th May 2014:
So, I'm torn.

On the one hand, I love the moment with Sirius during the wedding. You've teased us with glimpses of Aislin and Sirius' past, but we've only seen snippets of their current predicament. And they seem so natural together - the part with Moody was beyond hilarious because they seemed to play off each other without much effort.

But you know me, I love her connection with Remus because it's not effortless, it's difficult and confusing. So this whole thing about the "second chance" is a little disheartening, but only because I'm selfish and want them to get together ;)

Otherwise, fantastic chapter. You're amazing and I can't wait for the next chapter whenever you're done with it!

Author's Response: Haha sorry about that whole thing. But I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter! I'm in the middle of writing a bunch of term papers, so things are a bit crazy, but I'll try to get the next one in the queue sometime this weekend. As always, thanks for reading and reviewing! :)

Review #34, by wonweasley Fifteen: A Sudden Brightness

8th May 2014:
Okay, wow. I had to take a few moments to bask in the pure happiness of that chapter! Of course James and Lily's wedding was a success! It's James and Lily. And seeing all the old school chums together just made my heart swell. How you portrayed Peter was so important, I can't even explain... It's like, we know what's coming so as readers we expect to see hints of his betrayal before it happens, but why? All the others are clever witches and wizards, and any giveaways - no matter how small - would have been noticed. So I like that you still included Peter as one of the gang and not this outsider presence, just because of what happens later on. So yeah, bonus points for that characterisation.

Drunk Remus is adorable. Stop it, I might die. Drunk times all together is just magical.

There were so many things about this chapter that I loved, but hands down my favourite part was Sirius and Aislin vying for Moody's affection (so to speak). The fact that he hates it, or perhaps just doesn't know how to deal with it, makes it even better. The man is a work of art.

All in all, amazing job on another amazing chapter!

Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it! It always strikes me as unrealistic when Peter acts all sketchy or is completely left out of the action, so I wanted to avoid that. I had lots of fun with the dialogue this chapter :) Thanks so much for reviewing!

Review #35, by jinxz0715 One: The Beginning

7th May 2014:
I've just read all chapters you have posted (14, as of now) and I'm absolutely floored that this story doesn't have more reviews. This is one of the best fanfics I have ever read, and I've read seven years worth. I really hope you keep on with it. I love the characters, love the plot, and your writing is wonderful. I really hope your reviews pickup because the story definitely deserves them.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing! It's hard for me to promote the story because I don't have an account on the forums (used to but became addicted), so your feedback really means a lot!

Review #36, by wonweasley Fourteen: The Hierophant

7th May 2014:
I'm super mad at myself for not keeping up and reviewing every chapter, but time is just not on my side right now. Basically you're amazing, alright? I envy your ability to write distinctive, 3D characters - even the minor ones. I love that we can get a good sense of them and their role in the larger plot, despite the bias of Aislin's perspective. Moody is definitely still doing it for me. Well done there.

Also HELLO SIRIUS. I enjoy the story's pacing, and the fact that Sirius appears only in short bursts makes me treasure those moments even more. Needless to say I am excited to see more of him. I want to hate Cuffe for getting in the way, but I mostly pity him. Poor, obnoxious man.

The Aislin/Remus friendship is coming along nicely. I'm interested to see whether Remus' awkwardness (about where to put his hands when Aislin hugged him, for example) is a product of his own possible feelings for her, or whether he's aware of Sirius' feelings and senses a conflict there. He's adorable, either way.

And finally, to the main plot! Just incredible. And terrifying. The fact that North is performing sacrifices to get magic?! It must've been pretty strong to be able to get him out of a Ministry holding cell. Or maybe he has an accomplice on the inside? My god, the anticipation is killing me!

Just altogether well done. I will try to keep up as much as possible. But know that you have a very dedicated fan right here. 10/10 flawless story.

Author's Response: :'D Thank you so much, this is lovely. Sirius will get some screen-time in the next chapter (the wedding!) but he's definitely going to continue to be more of a secondary character. I've had so much fun with the development of Aislin/Remus' friendship, and also with the murders (maybe that's morbid)! Thanks so much for reviewing, glad you're enjoying the story! Next chapter is in the queue :)

6th May 2014:
Omg omg omg, the suspense! Fantastic! :D

First off, I love the scene where Remus comes home. The little details were perfect - Remus not knowing where to put his hands and blushing, Aislin realizing that she missed having him around and doesn't want him to move out. You know me, I ship them hardcore, so that was nice to read ;) Can't wait for the wedding!

As for North ... more suspense! I can't wait to see where you take this plot. Seriously, I'm so excited XD

Author's Response: So I just spilled a protein shake all over my computer and planner and textbook and things were looking grim, and then I saw this nice lovely review which made it all better :D. I'm really having fun with the development of A/R's relationship, and of course the mystery. Next chapter is in the queue!

Review #38, by oldnumberseven  Thirteen: The Lovers

4th May 2014:
I am so sorry I haven't reviewed until now - I read this chapter as soon as it came out but I've been so busy ... anyways, here's my usual batch of ramblings XD

I love the murders, they are getting to fascinating to read about. And not in a morbid way, but in a story telling way. Like, I'm excited to see what happens next and every time I read something, I think how it could be useful to the overall plot. It's great!

So you warned me that there wouldn't be a lot of Remus in this chapter, but I have to say, I wasn't disappointed. It's interesting to see her relationship with Sirius evolve ... because they used to have a thing, but now they aren't sure what they are exactly. And Barnabus is there as always and it's nice to see Aislin acknowledge the fact that she knows he's no good for her.

Can't wait for the next chapter!!


Author's Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! :) I'm glad the murders are compelling, hopefully the next one will be even more gripping! Also glad you didn't mind Remus not being around, although he will (spoiler alert) be coming home soon! Next chapter just got validated, enjoy! :)

Make way for Aislin's #1 fan! :D

Another great chapter. I'm still fangirling the hardest when Aislin and Remus are trying their best to be a crime fighting (or in this case, serial killer stopping) duo. It's so funny because Remus is calm, cool, and collected and Aislin is all over the place. It makes for some good comedy, even if you don't intend it to be.

But the mystery unfolds! I was wondering what North's evil plan might be, so I'm excited to see if he performs any magic. And hello Sirius, nice to see you again! But you know me, I'm still pulling for Remus to end up with Aislin ;)

Author's Response: Glad you liked it! I had so much fun with the interview scene, I really like playing their Aislin and Remus' personalities off of each other. Remus will be off on his mission for most of the next chapter, unfortunately, but there should be lots of excitement to make up for that.

Thanks for reviewing! Your comments always make my day!

Review #45, by oldnumberseven  Eleven: The Chariot

15th April 2014:
Hello again XD

Hmm, so where do I begin? I suppose I'll start with the scene in Barnabus' house - it's intriguing to see Aislin realize that she should have chucked her friend with benefits ages ago, but even more exciting (or at least to me) that she's thinking about Remus while she's in another man's bed. And not sexual thoughts persay, but when he would do/how he would react. And SPEAKING of Remus, what does Moody want him to do? Something dangerous and werewolf related?

I also have to say that the ending scene with Sirius was really cute. Even though you haven't mentioned too much about their relationship, I can still see them running around Hogwarts, playfully fighting and bickering. But I'm still rooting for a Remus romance XD

Great chapter!

Author's Response: I wanted this chapter to be a little more reflective / focus more on Aislin's personal life, as the last few have pretty much revolved around the case. Glad you liked the chapter, keep rooting for Remus! And as always thanks for the lovely review :)

6th April 2014:
Ahhh, more awesomeness!

I love love love the part where Aislin and Remus go into North's home (and I freaking died when she said she would get him a house plant to try and be nice - laughed as well when Moody reminded them they can use magic and North can't). As I've said before, you lay out the whole serial killer mystery so well and the scene where they go into the basement is just the icing on the cake. I was honestly expecting something more gruesome (like actual human bodies), but I'm sure things are going to develop/become more scary as the chapters go on :D

The last dinner scene was interesting too - I'm excited to see what happens at Lily and James' wedding! I can just picture Aislin seeing Sirius and then getting really drunk to get over things, and ... well, you're the author, I'll stop here. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Author's Response: Thanks so much, glad you liked the chapter! James and Lily's wedding isn't for a few more chapters, but I'm so excited to write it!! xD Next chapter is in the works, should be up sometime this week!

Review #47, by wonweasley Ten: Into the Darkness

5th April 2014:
It's decided: Moody is my favourite character in this story -- possibly in the whole Harry Potter universe. "But you have the strategic advantage of using magic." Gold, just gold. I don't know how you manage to characterise him so well - not only canonically, but with your own flavour that effortlessly fits with the genre you're working in. Seriously, it's a tricky job and you are nailing it.

The scene in North's place had me on edge. I think the contrast between the perfectly decorated house and the horrifying basement was described in enough detail to get a real sense of how messed up people are, and how easily they can hide it. The dude (whether he's North or not) really creeps me out, but I'm so keen to know more about him. And to find out all this Priestess business. Exciting!

And finally I just adore the relationship that's forming between Aislin and Remus, the fact that he's starting to feel more comfortable around her. It just makes me happy because I feel like if there's anything I want in life, it's for Remus Lupin to be happy. (It's unhealthy. I know.)

Looking forward to the next chapter!

Author's Response: I'm having lots of fun writing Moody, and I'm glad he reads well!
I tried to make the basement scene just gross enough to be unsettling, without being so awful that it comes off as if I'm trying to be shocking just for the fun of it. That's definitely the point I want to make with North though, that as normal as somebody might look, you never know what's on the inside.
The friendship between Aislin/Remus is definitely going to develop more over the course of the story. I really like writing about them because their personalities are so different, but play so well off each other!

Thanks for reviewing, next chapter is in the works!

28th March 2014:
Ha! Oh Aislin, you're always sneaking around and doing things you're not supposed to!

I love the press conference in the beginning, it was great. And it's funny to see Barnabus pop up every once and awhile. Their relationship is intriguing because they sleep together and are fine being apart, but then they help each other out. But then Sirius comes in! As I've stated before, I'm a Remus fangirl in this story, but I don't mind Sirius being the romantic love interest. I love how he was in the middle of apologizing when Aislin has a breakthrough with the case. Which is starting to get really thrilling by the way!

Yay, all caught up! But can't wait for the next chapter :D

Author's Response: Thanks for another great review! :) I have half the next chapter done but I have classes starting tomorrow so it might take until this weekend to finish.

Review #49, by oldnumberseven  Eight: The Hermit

27th March 2014:
Oooo, this story is getting so so good! I can tell you've done your research on serial killers - or, well, at least you've planned out this person's kills very dramatically! This fic reminds me of Seven or Angels and Demons in that respect.

Btw, your drunk Remus is hilarious. I know he's a little more reserved during the HP books, but according to Pottermore, he did run away and drink himself silly when Tonks was preggo ... so it would make sense that he would get drunk in his youth. But of course, he's Remus, so it's always a bit funny to see him hungover :D

Aislin's relationship with Barnabus is also starting to get a bit interesting. It's a love/hate relationship, but it's not really a relationship at all ... ugh, I'm rambling. Just I know that I love it!


Author's Response: Haha, I tried not to get too carried away with drunk Remus, but I liked playing around with the idea that his good habits are rubbing off on Aislin / her bad ones are rubbing off on Remus. Thanks for yet another lovely review! :)

Review #50, by oldnumberseven  Seven: The Wheel of Fortune

27th March 2014:
OMG, I love Aislin and Remus living together. I can totally picture the whole thing in my head and it's hilarious. The scene with James was also pretty funny and I'm curious to know more about their relationship at Hogwarts. It sounds like the Marauders pranked her a bit, but she also dated Sirius ... I'm sure I'll figure it all out soon.

And speaking of Sirius - hello dear, nice to see you in the story! Love the sexual tension, but I'm secretly pulling for Aislin to end up with Remus ;)

Ok, so I know this sounds a bit odd, but I also really like that Aislin had a drinking problem. It makes for some funny, witty humor, but it's also pretty sad and depressing ... so it's interesting to read the flip flop between the two.

Great work as always! :D

Author's Response: I honestly love writing Remus, and I thought their personalities would play off each other well. I want Aislin's bad habits to be realistic and I'm trying not to gloss over / make light of them too much, but I think at this stage her character doesn't really take any of it seriously, so hopefully it comes across okay. Thanks so much for stopping by again, your reviews really mean a lot to me!
