I'm trying to hit every story that I lost the reviews to. So here it goes. I loved this story the first time I read it and I still love it. I love how Remus felt that no one cared about the deaths of Lily and James because they were too busy celebrating the downfall of Voldemort. I can easily see Remus feeling like he was the only who cared about their fates, because he was their friend. Brilliant how Remus was invited to spend Halloween with James and Lily. That adds a whole new side to his character. He might have just been another casualty, fighting to defend James, Lily and Harry and dying with the first two. Or James and Remus could have held Voldemort off long enough to let Lily and Harry escape. It adds so much to why he would feel guilty about what happened. The confrontation between Sirius and Remus was intense with Sirius trying to convince Remus of the real story and Remus refusing to believe him. Overall, you did an amazing job with this story!Author's Response: Once again, thank you!! I relly appreciate any reviews on my stories, especcailly since I lost all but three of them in all my stories combined...
The point I was trying to get across with this story is that Remus felt guilty. For all the wrong reasons. You hit it right on the head--he knew that he should have been there. His last words to James were horrible things to say, and that simply adds to the mountain of emotions swirling through his head right now. All this could have come back to him when Sirius escaped from Azkaban, because all of a sudden the door to his closet full of skeletons would have been flung open. Again.
Thank you So much for your kind words--they are much appreciated!!
