Hey there!

I can't seem to be getting enough of your stories. There's something drawing me back to your Author's Page time and time again. I'm glad that there is still plenty to read and review from your wonderful collection of stories.

Ok. I am going to sound like a broken record here I presume, but I can't say anything other than: I loved it! Every single word. Every tiny image. Every little feeling that secured my yearning for more Sirius/Lupin. I sincerely don't know how you manage to pull it off time and time again but your stories are so full of substance. I am sure that like some of the great classic novels out there, one lecture is not enough to penetrate their deeper meaning. The first read is only for familiarisation with the characters, the set up. Only after the second, third read and on can you truly reach to value it at its full potential. I wish I could do that one day. To have at least half of your talent with words :)

A very very touching piece it was indeed. Very poetical style. So much, that some phrases were a bit long for me to follow at times but I am assuming that that is specific to the way you chose to write the story.

I have never really considered reading Sirius/Lupin as a ship. When I first read your summary my first thought was that your approach would be closer to the friendship/brotherly love they shared. I can't say I'm disappointed at how it turned out though! It's very new and not entirely impossible. In any case, either as a pair or just friends, this little piece showed the intensity of their love. In less than 2000 words you uncovered wounds that sadly would have never healed for Remus, had he lived. Either as lovers, or just friends, the bond between them was too deep and too strong to have been restored once broken. It's sad to say this, but in a way, they are better off dead. The pain would have been too terrible to go on without any of the Marauders by his side in his future life.

Excellent read!

Author's Response: Hi! It's so nice to see you here again :)

Wow, it seems like your compliments get bigger and bigger with each review! I'm sure I don't deserve such high praise, but thank you all the same! I'd like to think that my stories are thought-provoking, or at the very least enjoyable, and it's great that you had that sense.

Lengthy phrasing is something I've been trying to work on - it's been pointed out to me now both in my fics and in my reports at work, so definitely an area of needed improvement! I'm glad that you still enjoyed the imagery-driven style here, though.

Sirius/Remus is sort of new for me, too. I wrote this for a friend who absolutely adores them, and while I could never measure up to her talent with this ship, I'd like to think it's sort of reminiscent of her style. After writing this, I feel like a romantic relationship could have existed there alongside a brotherly one. I usually think of James as being the "brother" figure for Remus and Sirius, though, really. I agree that things are probably best as they ended - both Sirius and Remus deserved some peace, and hopefully they got it.

Thanks for this very kind review :)
