Review #1, by Lady Asphodel true or not

29th January 2014:
Hello! Alishya here! Tagging you from the review thread!

First Paragraph: First, I must say, I love Remus! He such a great character. (Despite fictional) I wish he could see the goodness in himself too. :D

It's so sad how he see himself as someone to be feared or hated. And we know the wizarding society has basically shunned werewolves and whatnot - but... come on! Great person!

I loved how you wrote about Lily in Remus' eyes. It brings a more defining... I don't know... warm feeling to this story. :)

The ending was very sweet and sad. I am a James/ Lily shipper - but doesn't mean I don't want to see my Remus happy. I quite believe too that he loved her - especially how he praised her to Harry. There was definite fondness and admiration (particularly in the actor's voice.) So that and your fic here really painted a picture for me. ^_^

This was marvelously written! Keep it the great writing my dear! :D

Author's Response: Thank you Alishya! This review totally made me smile :)

I LOVE Remus. And even though I, too, ship L/J to the end, I can't help but think Remus loved her too. After all, besides his three friends, Lily was likely the first person his age to show real acceptance for what he was.

Thank you for such a lovely review! I'm glad you like it :)

Oh poor Remus, I really felt for him and the way he felt it was almost his duty to the code of friendship not to indulge or show that he cared for Lily in a more than firends way. He seems so unbelievably sad and I couldn't help but really sympathise with him and his unrequited love.

The part where he imagines her walking towards him down the aisle in white rather than James was a really sad moment for me as we see that he can never have her now. She is James's forever and yeah, I just thought it was very haunting and some of the sentences seemed very poetic. Great story and awesome writing!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! This is such a great review ♥
I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for reviewing!

Review #3, by caomoyl true or not

15th July 2013:

It has never occurred to me how Remus must have felt to be accepted by people when he lived in a world of people who hated those like him. Just a small 'we don't care' must have meant so much to him. It meant that they weren't scared of him, that they accepted him for who he was, and, possibly, would stand by him no matter what. That is something that he probably didn't get often.

I like how you showed Remus' love for Lily. It wasn't really jealousy of James or even hatred. He was happy for them and loved her in his own way, happy that she cared for him and accepted him rather than have a romantic type of love, but he still wished there could be more but just didn't show it.

Loved this! Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it :) I really tried hard to communicate how Remus might have felt toward the woman he described as "uncommonly kind" so I'm glad it worked!
Thanks for reviewing!
