Review #1, by Hmscherer 2

6th March 2014:
The specifically say that the wolfsbame potion hadn't been invented yet at this point in time

Author's Response: I actually researched this before adding it into the story, and it was created by Damocles in the mid-1970s. Canonically, Remus would not have had the opportunity to drink it during his time at Hogwarts because it is unlikely anyone would have been willing enough (ie, Severus Snape) to brew it for him. I thought, for the sake of something easier to write, I would incorporate that fact. He would have also only recently begun to take it, as it specifically indicates mid-70s, and I do think I mentioned that in one of the chapters. I did my best to make my story as factually correct as I could.

Review #2, by Rumpelstiltskin 6

6th February 2014:
It's okay Remus, I'm still cheering for you! :( *hugs*

I knew that Sirius would look good in that leather jacket. Well, at least Remus has eye-candy :p (more eye-candy). Aww, he's all embarrassed that Sirius is flaunting his present about :). Furthermore, no hiding from Sirius on his birthday!

Oh Remus! :( Goodness, that was a heck of a reaction, but I can completely understand where he's coming from! He doesn't want to believe that he's in love with Sirius, because Sirius is his best friend. Lily didn't help very much ;), but at least she's there for him.

Gah, I need to shake *both* of them, don't I?

Terrific chapter, as usual.


Author's Response: Ah, Lily - she's brutally helpful sometimes. And yes, the pair of them need a good shake.
Thank you for reading :)

6th February 2014:
Oh. My. Goodness. Sirus, That's not the problem at all! -_- He's a little dense sometimes, isn't he? Of course, Lily can't spill Remus' secret, which is not helping the situation! Oh boy. The cards make perfect sense, but they have nothing to do with Alisha...really! (Oh, look, you've got me all riled up!)

Remus is absolutely adorable, what with his crush and attempting to hide Sirius' present. I'm still just waving that flag.

No, with the kissing Hannah! I mean, it was a beautifully written scene and all, but...gah, feels! And then the *ahem* with Hannah. Oh Sirius...

See there, he hurt poor Remus' feelings :(!

Great chapter, but the feels! :D


Author's Response: Yes, Sirius isn't the brightest bulb. He'll come to regret his little rendezvous with Hannah.
Thank you! :)

5th February 2014:
I got distracted for a very long time...

I love Remus and Lily's friendship in this! My head-cannon says yes, yes, yes! Their personalities go together very well, especially as you've characterized them.

Not only do I think that Sirius would look fabulous in that leather jacket, but I think he'll love it. That was a very good choice.

:D Way to be bombarded with questions!

Another fantastic chapter!


Author's Response: Lily and Remus are my BroTP. I'm glad you enjoyed it :) Thank you x

Review #5, by Rumpelstiltskin 3

30th January 2014:
I have a feeling that I can overlook the AN, as I'm a little late in finding this story ;).

Yes, being a friend comes with some clearly defined boundaries...but who says that Sirius really wants to be his friend (you know, somewhere, deep in his subconscious where he's neglecting analyzing feelings). Ergh...I could shake James Potter for his "words of wisdom" :(. In fact, I think I will.

James' attitude for Quiddich practice was pretty epic, just saying.

Aww, did Remus confide his feelings for Sirius with Lily? Is that in the next chapter?

Gah...I absolutely have to go to sleep...but I will be back tomorrow after work for the next chapter. Definitely.

Wonderful job!


Author's Response: You must always disregard James' advice; in my mind he's intellectually advanced, but oblivious to the point of stupidity when it comes to everything else. I suppose he could only deflate his head so far.
And yes, Remus did confide in Lily. They're best friend's from beginning to end. Though perhaps Lily could have been less nosy towards the end; she had that girlish instinct for drama and gossip and being involved in things.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the chapters tomorrow :) Thank you! x

Review #6, by Rumpelstiltskin 2

30th January 2014:
POV switch -- oh how I love them!

Perhaps Hufflepuff's towels were yellow with black stripes, like a bee! *Cough* That's just my input on that little quandary.

In Remus' defense, Sirius black coming from the showers would be a difficult sight not to gawk at...just saying. Unfair, well yes, that's very unfair.

Ugh, poor Remus. While you've written his battle with his emotions wonderfully, I feel bad for the poor guy! He's having questionable feelings about one of his best friends, who (he is pretty sure) probably doesn't return those feelings! I'll wave the WolfStar-ship Flag through the story, and cheer for Remus :D.

The Fat Lady has some attitude ;)-- she's spunky and I like her.

Oh, the feels! I will have to cheer louder.

The power of Sirius Black's wink should not be taken lightly -- it has enough impact to bring teenage werewolves to ruin. I can't say I blame Remus for not wanting to shower while Sirius is still in the bathroom, that could definitely become uncomfortable.

And the full moon eventually came.

Another lovely chapter!


Author's Response: Thank you so much :) I hope to see you cheering for Sirius soon ;)

Review #7, by Rumpelstiltskin Part One - 1

30th January 2014:
Hey there!

It's probably a good idea for Sirius *not* to pester Remus so close to the full moon ;). The way you set up the introduction was lovely, by the way. It flowed directly into the initial actions flawlessly.

You've captured the Marauder's concern for each other quite well, during the conversation between Sirius, James, and Peter. Remus was listening in, however...and I found that humorous.

Oh, I really loved that brief peak into Remus' characterization. Even though he denied Sirius notes for the lesson, in the end he ends up leaving the notebook behind for him. It seems like a small gesture, but it really shows what kind of friend he really is (or perhaps I'm reading too much into this).

Oh, poor Sirius, Remus doesn't want to talk, nor is he very happy with him at the moment.

I get the feeling that Sirius isn't directly recognizing something that drives him to care so much about Remus...other than being his best friend ;).

Anyway, fantastic chapter!


Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I love that you noticed the notebook gesture. I find that the smallest gestures hold the greatest importance.
