Hi! Once again, great job with this chapter! Despite the fact that it seemed a little too easy, I'm very happy the "rivalry" between Myra and the boys appears to be resolved! I thought it was adorable having Lupin stand up for Myra! Very swoon worthy!Author's Response: If it seems too easy, it probably is ;)
I was very hesitant about that scene where Remus stands up to her, feeling it might be out of character for him. But I'm glad you feel it worked :)
Thanks for the review! Report Review
Okay, now that I'm on chapter 22, I gotta admit I didn't think I was gonna be so enraptured in this story. Not because it's bad or anything (cause you definitely got me after the second chapter) but I just haven't read fanfiction in SO LONG. I think you just got me hooked again! Haha. I love Remus, and lord I really want him and Myra to get back together because they would be perfect. but I really do hope that her and the boys can learn to get along - not just for Remus' sake and everything. Well, see you when you update! Can't wait!Author's Response: It has been so great seeing all your responses to each chapter! I've skimmed through each chapter before replying, and that was great too. Sometimes one needs to reread ones own story just to refresh everything. I'm happy and honoured this story have gotten you hooked on reading fanfiction again! It's things like that that makes me happy I've chosen to make an author out of myself :)
Thank you so much for all your great reviews! And I hope I see more reviews from you in the future :)
The next chapter has been sent to my beta, but I'm not quite sure when it will be posted. I hope within a month or less since the last one came out.
Again, thank you for all the reviews :D Report Review
Oh man. They lost A LOT of Gryffindor points. That had to be painful for McGonagall to do. And I swear. I hope that Remus never finds out, but I have a feeling that that is something you can't really hide from him. But that is gonna be horrible. But he's so cute caring about Myra. Wah. They need to get together like NOW.Author's Response: Stupid things have a tendency to come crawling back... That's all I'm gonna say about that. ;) Report Review
...I have no words. I'm still shuddering thinking about the pain that she's in. Ouchhh.Author's Response: And Sirius is calling _her_ dangerous... Report Review
Oh Myra... why would you do that? Sure you were curious, but Merlin. That was a truly bad idea! And yeah... They need to just shag and get it over with, haha. I kid - they need to admit to each other that they like each other before that happens. Yeah.Author's Response: She's really stupid sometimes, really really stupid! And oh, the consequences this will have... I loved writing this chapter, mostly because of Peter's shining moment... He deserves that.
Oh yes, shag already... :D:D Report Review
Wee! Yay! They are friends again! Nothing makes me happier! and Remus is just sooo cute. They are adorable together. Love, love, love. And oh Remus - she cares so much about you. But WOW. Myra is very level-headed. So clear that she has to be friends with him before anything else can happen. More power to her for that.Author's Response: Level-headed, maybe. I call it desperation :) She wants to be in Remus' life no matter what. I would want that... Sigh... Report Review
I like that you made them partners again, but I hope that it actually helps them. And thank god she finally admitted she has feelings for the boy -- now if only he was still talking to her. Can't have everything now can't we? As for the September 1st thing. When I used to write (which was brief) I used to still have them go to Hogwarts on the 1st (looked up calendars from the actual years) and then they would begin classes on the next Monday. Cause that was definitely a major flaw in all the books.Author's Response: I think Myra would force them back on track whether or not they were partnered together again... Just the way she is :)
I'm anal about details like dates and such. I have drawn up calendars with dates and full moons, that lists Quidditch practices, prefect meeting and patrols and exams and all other events. It's a right pain sometimes, but it really helps. I can't for the life of me understand how Rowling could be so happy-go-lucky about that... Report Review
Oh, nothing will ever be as fun as the day of under-aged drinking with your friends while the parents are asleep. Those were the days. Makes me feel younger again, haha. Oh Marie. So eager. Thank god nothing bad happened. I'm glad for Hestia's presence though, has made Myra a lot happier now and thought less about Remus and his condition.Author's Response: Marie's a little troublemaker sometimes... But she's too Hufflepuff to be _real_ trouble :) Report Review
Her parents are so cute for worrying about her but bravo to them for not being so overly protective. But I really do wish that Myra would be able to enjoy her summer vacation and not worry about this so much. But yay for Hestia! I've missed her. And I do hope that Remus wants to continue being friends with her.. it'd be a shame if he just continued to avoid her. I hope they get over this soon enough.Author's Response: She will enjoy the vacation soon :) Perhaps a bit too much ;) Report Review
Wow. that chapter was chilling and gruesome and very well written and thought out. That's all I can really say.Author's Response: I loved writing that chapter! But it was hard, trying not to go too overboard... Report Review
No. Remus. Talk to herrr. She's sad! Come on man! Hmph. But I do love the Marauders. Going to such great lengths for their friend and gotta love Dumbledore sticking up for Remus like he always does. And now it's onto summer holidays where they probably won't see each other, unless you have some kind of fabulous trick up your sleeve, which I hope you do have. And I would LOVE to have a friend like Hestia. Although, I'm sure I do, but she's just so understanding - it's amazing.Author's Response: Yes, Remus, talk to her!!!
Yeah, Hestia is a good friend, isn't she? A bit too good, perhaps, or too understanding. Dun dun... ;) Report Review
...That was a brilliant twist. Studying for exams is how she figures it out. Brilliant. No big confrontation, or at least not yet. I can't believe this is how she finds out. Thank god that's over. Wow. I don't know what else I was planning on mentioning cause I can't believe that just happened. Poor Remus, she doesn't hate you! Calm down boy. Or try to at least..Author's Response: I had this scene planned since before I started writing the first chapter. And in the very first, early, early draft, it happened in chapter four. I think it worked better here... And so close to summer, gone from school and all that. Muahahaha! :) Report Review
.she got fierce. But understandable. The Marauders have been on her case for weeks. Man, I didn't know she had that in her to step up to Sirius Black like that. I know she's a determined girl but wow. I'm sad her and Remus will no longer be patrolling together, though. But she really just needs to sort out her feelings already. My, it's getting painful to see her not be able to figure out why she's feeling the way she's feeling.Author's Response: It's these things that just adds to the Marauders fuel when being suspicious of Myra. She just doesn't act like a normal person would. Going out in the woods, taking on Sirius Black... Tsk tsk.
Soon, she will figure it out, soon :) Report Review
She really isn't good at being too terribly sneaky is she? Literally calling out that she was looking for Remus! But by your little preview - I actually don't disagree with how the boys will treat her. Remus has had a rough life and after Snape had found out, I'm sure they're even more on their toes about making sure nobody else finds out about him. And seriously, she FIGURED OUT HER FEELINGS. Hallelujah. Now let's get around to her admitting them. That may take a while though, sigh.Author's Response: Myra isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer :P
What you mention there, is a lot of what drives Sirius' stubborn protectiveness, in addition to being suspicious about Myra. So again, Myra and Sirius has a long way to go...
She figured out _some_ of her feelings :) Report Review
.And just like that I'm rooting for Hestia and Henry. It's only a matter of time I think. Although, at this rate - I think they'd become a couple before Myra even figures out she likes Remus. Good lord, girl. Open your eyes! But as far as Valentine's Days go, that probably was one of the better ones to have, haha. I really do like the development of feelings in this story. How it isn't immediate that Myra likes Remus or gets together with him really quickly. It's much more natural.Author's Response: Hestia and Henry, eh? If only you knew what I'm planning there... Muahahaha! :):)
I'm happy you like it the slow, natural way I'm writing it. No matter how a relationship might develop in real life, you just can't rush things with Remus. It's like approaching a deer... Hmm, he is cute like one... I'm distracted now, and will move on to your next review :) Report Review
Love, love, love this story. I love Remus sticking up for Myra, Hestia, and Marie. And good lord, while you gotta admire the Marauders for being so protective - lighten up y'all. Your friend is showing interesting in someone other than you three boys. Be supportive in his instincts! As for Hestia... I can't believe she actually said yes to Ambrose! Oh my god! I can't wait to read about how that date goes, heh.Author's Response: The Marauders were scared of Myra because of her questioning and curious looks in the beginning. And we all know Sirius is stubborn, in my head he's the driving force between the protectiveness and hostility. He and Myra have a long way to go...
Ah, I had so much fun with that date between Hestia and Ambrose... Hmm, memories :) Report Review
Bahaha, I love her taking authority and running with it. It's interesting to see that side of her. While Myra can be headstrong sometimes she's never really been that much of a force to be reckoned with - so it's cool to see her take such initiative. Though, I'm sure most of it was because she was doing rounds with the Head Boy. But lord is she oblivious?! How does she NOT see that he kind of has feelings for her? But really, she still hasn't put the dates together... she was so close to figuring out the great Remus Lupin mystery.Author's Response: Dumbledore must have seen something in her to make her a prefect, so I guess it really only shows when she really needs it, or when she's trying to impress someone :P
Like I said earlier, she's slow in her smarts, and also her feelings. It will come :) Report Review
Hmm, little bit of mystery and intrigue around Hestia. I mean I know there are people that just don't want relationships, but I don't know any that would freak out and go to the lengths that she has gone. I hope this develops further and we can find out why. Remus, I love you. That's all I need to say, really, haha. Well onto the next chapter!Author's Response: To be honest, I haven't decided what is going on with Hestia in that regards yet. I have a few ideas that I'm trying to work out, but it's no big issue for the story yet. But it will come, that I can promise :) Report Review
Oooh! Good chapter! Can't wait for the next update! =]Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for the review! I've sent the next chapter to my beta, but not sure how long it will take... Report Review
Now it's been a while for me - but shouldn't the girls get in trouble for using magic outside of school? or was it acceptable because their parents are magical? I'm forgetting all these little facts and it's horrible. So ashamed with myself, haha. Remus is so adorable making sure Myra wasn't angry with him or anything. Melts my heart. I also squealed internally when he hugged her a little longer than a normal hug! Yay! And I love the sweet family unit they have. I hope this story has a happy ending for them - but I know that can never be really promised.Author's Response: I figured it was acceptable if they live in a magical household. Or, not acceptable, but difficult to trace. The adults do so much magic anyway, so why would the Ministry bother with tracing every bit if magic, _in case_ it's from someone underaged... Not sure if that's something Rowling intended, but I'm taking a fair few liberties in this story :)
Happy ending, eh? We'll see :) Report Review
She's a smart little bugger isn't she? It won't take too long to connect the dots, I'm sure. But big whoop for them being partnered together for next term. I like Myra. She's very determined. I can't wait for the next chapter to see her in her family setting. Family dynamics are always so great to read about. Hestia is ridiculous, but it's okay. And Remus is a darling for saving her a seat. Methinks the boy is infatuated. Hehe.Author's Response: Myra? Smart?
Hmm, maybe. She's slow in her smarts, or at least that's how I tried to make it :)
I hope it's not too cliche to have them partnered as prefects. But what is life without a few cliches :)
Methinks you are right about Remus :) Report Review
Oh, I love the connection they both kind of have with each other. And while in every other story I would so root for one of Lily's friends to get with Remus, I do like this subtly oh Myra and him having attractions for each other. Poor Marie - that had to be a hard fall. Ouch. Another good chapter - it's been quite a while since I've read fanfiction and this story is definitely helping me get right back into it!Author's Response: I'm honoured that my story helps you get back into reading fanfiction! At least I've done something right with my life ;)
I'm so tired of stories that rush into things and feel unreal, so I tried to make this subtle and real. Nice to see that it's appreciated, when it's very easy to write something rushed and unreal just to please the majority of readers (*cough*Twilight*cough*). Report Review
I died. I'm 20, about to be 21, and I have to admit even I blushed at the first part of this chapter. But good lord, that was HILARIOUS. Yay for the Marauders and for the ever lovely Remus. I feel sorry for those that can't appreciate him as much. But I like that you didn't put them in the same year. That's definitely a change from the norm. And I gotta say, after this chapter I'm def a fan. It was awesome.Author's Response: Haha! In my head the entire chapter was a LOT more raunchy, but that's for _my_ head only ;)
I debated with myself for a while, about putting them in the same year or not, both can be cliche, and both can work out. So I'm glad you liked how it ended up!
Yay, a fan! :D Report Review
I love anything and everything Marauder Era. So this story immediately attracted me. With her being in the hospital you definitely got a sense as to who Myra is and what's most important to her, but it'll be great to see her interact with people more. All in all, good first chapter! Now onto the next!Author's Response: When I logged on to check if I'd gotten any reviews, my eyes bugged out when I saw 24 unanswered reviews, 23 of them from you! I honestly thought for a moment that HPFF had done something weird again... But no, it was all real, and it makes me really really happy :)
I'm glad the story got your attention and that you liked the first chapter! Report Review
