This is so amazing. I love how you show his emotions similar to Remus Lupins, it is so sweet to hear that he wants to read, and feels the shame of his family. I find it horrific to realise that he was bitten by his own father, forced into the clan. And the characterisation was lovely too, Garm seems a really nice person, and Elizabeth is really good in the way she treats Garm as a human, not a wolf.
Overall this is a really good story. so glad I read it!Author's Response: Thank you for this review! I'll get to yours right away. ^^
I'm so glad you thought that the emotions and characterisation was good. Yes, getting bitten by your own father would be horrific, wouldn't it? I felt terrible for Garm as I wrote it, so I was glad he found Elizabeth and was happy in the end. I'm so glad you liked it!

Wow. I love that this is almost a backstory to how Fenrir became the leader of his pack but really more about his brother. I thought that the characterization was wonderful, that Garm really was very different from his brother and different from what you would expect the stereotypical werewolf to be.
Overall I really liked it. I haven't read this Native American Myth but I did think that this story was well put together and I like that in the end Garm got to be safe and be as normal as possible. I couldn't help being slightly disgusted at his dad though and how his father bit him when he was a newborn. To me that's an absolutely horrible thing to happen but I also thought that it fit the story really well.
MileyMalfoy ^^Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, I thought that Garm would be able to show how Fenrir grew up, and contrast it to how he maybe could have turned out (e.g. Garm, if that makes sense ^^)
I'm really glad you liked it, because I found it a little bit tricky to translate into the wizarding world, but at the same time, I think it turned out pretty loyal to the story.
Oh yes, I felt so sorry for Garm, and I felt terrible as I wrote it- but I think the fathers idea was that if his children never experienced normality, they wouldn't resent being a werewolf, and instead would hate wizards, if you know what I mean? I mean, it worked with Fenrir.
But, yes, I'm really glad you liked it! ^^
