Review #1, by maraudertimes An apology

25th September 2016:

I'm not super familiar with HTM (meaning, I've binged read it several times into the early morning hours over the past few years but like the idiot I am, I've never really taken the time to a) review all of it, b) actually read it when I'm very much awake and alert), but I do like how you have these small excerpts of the story. It kind of fills in the gaps and it's super cool to see the different scenarios that might play out.

I really liked the progression of this scene. It was cool to see Sirius' realization of how they treat Laura, especially because I can see him metaphorically kicking himself for not realizing it sooner. Plus, I thought that the whole James referring to Beatrice as 'the older one' was a really good way to cement that in, that they really don't treat her like an individual, but instead like an extension of her sister.

The apology was very nice. I thought that Mary was great, and the fact that you mentioned that Laura kind of softened really emphasized the fact that she took his apology to heart and really thought it was genuine. It was a nice little moment and I really liked seeing this in this way.

Also the little beauty rest quips might be my favourite thing about this entire chapter/one-shot. They are hilarious and absolutely what would happen.

Great job!
Lo :)

I've been bawling my out at this chapter! I knew that this was the only way for the story to go, to bring us to JKR's siruius, but its heartbreaking! Very well written x

Once again, I'm so annoyed that I didn't know this existed until now. this was just the sort of closure I need after how to tame a marauder. I think I've just been continually crying since the last chapter. The way the characters come to life is incredible, I feel like they are actually a part of canon now for me. It really didn't help that I was listening to some really dramatic music while I was reading this either :((
Anyway, I think this was a perfect ending, even if it was sort of bittersweet. xx

I can't believe I only just found all of these extracts, dammit... I don't know if you look at reviews anymore, but I seriously loved this chapter especially. Sirius just seems so real, and the way you weaved it into the real storyline just made it seem even more real. It was so painful to read too, because it's so sad. You're honestly a terrific writer xx

There is no second chance in death.
The other version is better, to me, even if sadder.

This chapter was just the perfect bow to wrap up this amazing series. So very well done. HTM and TPOBT have been my favorite stories on this site. I will always think of these stories as being canon every time I see or read anything in Potterverse. Thank you so much.

Review #10, by gigi James: The funeral

19th July 2014:
I loved both stories: HTM and TPOBT. Very well written and stories that comply with canon, especially Marauder stories are my favs.
I am wondering why there weren't 2 separate services for Laura because you can't just Obliviate her Muggle family and erase all their memories of her funeral.
Also, doesn't seem right that James refers to Sirius as Padfoot when talking to Aubrey.
Loved that somehow James did make the war right through Lily and Harry.

I've read through all your stories and I can't say that I've reviewed a single one of them. Let me rectify that now.
I am so happy that you wrote these stories. The characters completely came to life for me, and I have taken such pleasure in reading them. I've returned to fan fiction after a long hiatus, and I can say without hesitation that it is stories like the ones that you have written that keep me coming back for more. I am so happy that Sirius and Laura got their happy ending, probably even more so than I was for Harry in canon! Thank you for writing your marauder stories, I really enjoyed all of them.

I am so sad this story is over. It was amazing and super addicting.It was realy nice to see the story from Sirius's point off view as well.If this author writes a real book i would buy it in about a second. The harry potter world was perfectly captured.I just wish there was the part where Sirius thinks Laura is cheating on him, from his point of view. I always wondered why he believed that.Delicate was fine i guess, but HTM deserves the top spot.

I have to tell you, I'm absolutely gobsmacked. Started reading HTM just the other day and today I read about the second half of that and this, from beginning to end (I know - who cares if I have a thesis to hand in in a few weeks?). You write so incredibly well, and with so much feeling - I've been bailing my eyes out more than I care to think about today. Although I absolutely hate that you had to kill off Laura, but I do understand it though...

Anyway, I'd give this whole universe you've created 100/10 if I could, and believe me I'm picky with my fanfiction ;) I'll go back to HTM and review that as well, just had to read this first! Keep up the good work, your writing is really good! :)

I just reread this story for the third time. Only I skipped the last two chapters of the actual story and moved onto this instead... Both endings made me cry but I absolutely love this one. You are an amazing writer and I hope you come out with another story this good, absolutely incredible. You really deserved the dobby.

Review #16, by John cosh Starting again

28th February 2014:
I have to admit, after reading "The process of becoming tamed" and the "How to tame a marauder" I was very impressed at your writing skills. It was so sad when Laura died but you were able to find a way to add a happy ending to the end of the story. I really liked how you were able to tie in Sirius after he got out of Azkaban. The whole story fit so perfectly with the Harry Potter books. I liked the part where Ginny and Hermoine started asking Sirius about Laura because it seemed perfectly in character. The afterlife was the perfect place to have a happy ending. Also, all the chapters from Sirius' POV were incredible and they fit perfectly with the chapters from Laura's POV. I wish that we had gotten to hear a little more from Sirius about Harry during the afterlife but I totally understand your choice to have Sirius explain to Laura what his life was like instead.

This is my first review so I don't know if I wrote to much or to little. Please forgive me if I did anything wrong...

Thank You for the Happy Ending! I was so depressed until I found this. I loved being able to see Sirius thoughts about Laura. I also really appreciated how you added a few scenes I really wanted to see and tied this story in with JKR story. It was awesome! Thank you!

Review #18, by Owlpost68 An apology

27th December 2013:
That was a pretty great chapter. This definitely showed that Sirius was growing up just a bit, and also how close their group is. Moony noticing exactly what was wrong was really in character for him. The one thing I noticed was your sentences were pretty long. There were some that might have flowed better if broken into 2. I understand sometimes it's hard. When I write on a train of thought, it can sometimes be longer than the sentence should be.
My favorite part though is the last bit though, that Remus and Sirius were more handsome than Peter and James :) very funny.

Okay , I was severely disappointed by Laura's death in HTTAM and this totally makes up for all of it! An amazing story. Congratulations on a fantastic fanfiction. You're a great writer!!

Ok, first can I just say THANK YOU for making a happy ending. I read HTM a while ago, but I just finished rereading it and noticed the happy ending bit here.
I was practically bawling my eyes out when Laura died (not really, but it felt that way.)
Don't judge me! I'm a very emotional person.

Review #21, by maskedmuggle Starting again

12th September 2013:

I just finished reading How to Tame a Marauder, and whilst I thought the epilogue was very realistic and believable, albeit extremely sad.. I of course couldn't resist sprinting over to this chapter to see the 'happy' ending. I wasn't quite sure how you were going to have that happen, and after reading this chapter I'm actually really glad that you didn't just have them both stay together, remain alive, live happily ever after and ignore canon. I love how you managed to achieve the happy ending while still sticking to canon!

I mentioned this in the other review I left, but I think what's so amazing about this is simply just how beautiful the love between Sirius/Laura is. I thought that there reunion might have been even more emotional, but I can understand the sense of hesitancy and all the talk concerning the past few years. So a really great plot, and a really well written chapter too. It still makes me sad that Sirius had to die, but it's definitely really lovely to know that there's an opportunity for both Laura and Sirius to be happy. I'm dying to go read the rest of the chapters in this story collection now. I really enjoyed this!

Review #22, by HP will never die James: The funeral

25th July 2013:
So so so sad!!! ;(
But I kind of think James was a bit harsh on Aubrey. I mean, it was a while ago that he cheated on Laura, an he was just there to pay his respects.
Anyway, absolutely amazing story!!! :)

I just wanted to let you know how much I love this story. I've read HTM and PBT multiple times and absolutely love them. They've helped me get through some things and always cheer me up. You are a great writer and I hope you continue to write!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I put a lot of work into these stories so it really is lovely to have people react the way you have. I'm so pleased you enjoyed them so much and that they have helped you cope with different things. That really does make my day. :)

thanks again, Mel
