Good story, with tenderness and passion. Personally, I find it hard to reconcile Remus being in love with Sirius, then having a relationship with Tonks and marrying her. But maybe that's just me. Still liked the story, though.
So I think this will be an entirely flaily review that is written in a stream of consciousness. Fair warning, lol.
Awwwww cute James/Lily is always cute. And I love how you manage to capture that ever-familiar feeling of dread because of the war -- Marauder Era is so your thing! You really should write it more often. I feel you really caught the mood in a realistic manner for people of their age, only just leaving school. And it makes me so sad to see Lily and James hoped to have children, plural, but were never able to have more than one :( On another note, it was lovely to see that whole thing of being scared of adulthood -- I so get what they mean. Because me... seventeen... just no, ha.
AND DOUBLE AWWWWWW. So Remus and Sirius are already together? Yayyyy. I love Sirius. He is adorable, especially when he’s blushing lol. And James’s “Oh” is perfect. Just perfect. And Sirius -- squeeeee! “I want to live with this one” -- like I said, perfection :D
Yussssss to Lily helping get Sirius and Remus together in the end :D I always thought she would have something to do with it. And awww it was like Sirius proposed to Remus, in a way, haha.
EEEEEP how terse! Oh, you have really got me emotional now with that situation *just* before James and Lily’s deaths. And I so get why Sirius would suspect Remus during such a difficult time, too. That ending “Love you” is wonderfully placed, as well :D and so so heartbreaking.
I want to hug Remus so much when seeing him in so much pain emotionally. As well as other things, but I won’t go into that here, lol.
That final scene -- I LOVE the nostalgia of them as former lovers and all those years not seeing each other and that mutual decision to try again. That last line in particular just broke my heart, though: "I'm going to spend the rest of my life making up for lost time." CRYYYYYYYY!
Overall, Jamie, you should be well aware of how amazing you are and how much this means to me. THANK YOU SO MUCH and I heart you lots!
Loved it! I've always found the end of book five very emotional, but the way you tied the events of Sirus's death into the story was excellent, it made it even more emotional and dramatic. :)
Paints a picture, but not one I am personally happy with.
