I have never read a story from the viewpoint of Rosmerta before, so this was really refreshing and entertaining to read. I love the way you seamlessly merged the past (with the Marauders drinking at the pub) and the present (McGonagall et. al drinking and talking about Sirius escaping from Azkaban) and tied it all together with Rosmerta's confused perceptions of Sirius. Really well done, that must have taken a lot of skill because I didn't get confused once, yet it seemed so effortless! I love the way you wrote the repartee between the Marauders. I'm planning to read your story "Never All Together," and I'm excited to see how you flesh out the relationships between the four friends. I'm wondering if Rosmerta and Sirius ever had a romantic entanglement ... it's very subtle here (unless I missed something huge, which is always possible) but I like it that way. :) Great job! 10/10Author's Response: Ah no, there isn't anything romantic. Haha! :) Of course, Rosmerta thinks Sirius is a good-looking guy, but she doesn't like him like that. I love writing the Marauders, and I'm glad you like how I portray them. The memories were tricky for me to combine, so I'm glad it paid off. Thank you so much for this review! :)
Wow! I can't believe that you only have a few reviews! The story is absolutely amazing and I loved the way you portrayed the characters and I think that you captured Sirius' personality and his cheekiness as well. I just happened to stumble across this story and Im sorry to hear you didn't win the competition! The story deserved to.
10/10Author's Response: Oh, but there were other wonderful stories in the competition as well. :) Thank you for this lovely review; I'm so glad you liked this. :)
I originally read this story in the wizard duel submissions. I thought it was brilliant that i read it twice even then (and voted for it too ;) Did u win??). I'm so glad i stumbled upon it again. You've written it so beautifully and the way the story repeatedly transcends from memory to memory is seamless. I just read it again and i know I'll never get tired of reading it over.
i absolutely LOVE it! Definitely one of my all-time favorites!
:DAuthor's Response: Wow. :D Sorry for the late response, but you have no idea how happy you made me when I first read this review, or even now after reading it again. :) I kinda crammed this story, see, and at first I had given up hope of using that "one memory to another" style, but I'm so glad somebody like you appreciates it. :) I didn't win, by the way, but your review... Wow! :) I feel like I've won. :D
This is absolutely gorgeous. I loved it! The memories and the time line and the thoughts... it was perfect! Rosmerta is such a little known character and you've done wonders with her. Very nice, indeed. I'm a huge fan of your writing - and this is no exception. I'm actually tempted to ask you to write a Rosmerta/Sirius romance =P Great job on this, edenvirg - really, really really great job!Author's Response: OMG. Did you really just leave me a review? *cover mouth in a silent gasp and holds self down to keep from jumping* Yay! You really did! :) I remember when you left me one for "Never All Together" as well; I kept reading it over and over. :)
Thank you, Jessi! I'm glad you liked it. You inspire me to write more. :) As for a Sirius/Rosmerta romance... Hmm, that's an interesting one to think about! It's an idea, definitely. But thanks again for leaving this review, Jessi. You've just made my day (actually, it's been 2 days already)! :D Report Review
