This is a great fic and I hope you haven't given up on it. You do such a good job with characterizations and you have a great story line, I would hate to see it left unfinished, so please update soon! Oh, and btw, I totally agree with all of your pet peeves in your summary. Especially the last one: Remy. Honestly, whose idea of a sick joke was that? Please update!
Very well done. You did a good job incorporating the song into the story. TONKS AND REMUS FOREVER!
This story is AMAZING! Are you continuing it? Please tell me you are!
My favorite quote:
"Her eyes lit up like she had just gotten a new puppy (although, in a way, she did)"
This fic is so sweet! A little sad at times too (like the end of chapter one), but that's kind of how there relationship is, isn't it: super sweet and sad. Remus and Tonks FOREVER!!!!
Oh, and congrats on your promotion! (I read your bio)
Awww, how sweet! I loved it! I especially like the part towards the end when he's talking about how the potion lets him keep his "self". It really made his character for me in this story. I love Remus so much.
Are you planning on writing anything more?
Author's Response: Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed the story! I appreciate your kind words. I am still writing, but I\'ve been posting at somewhat smaller fanfic sites these days. I have a LiveJournal account (shimotsuki), and in the sidebar you can find a link to \"index of all stories\".
So, at first I was going to point out that your story line was a little off (because in The Prince's Tale we find out that the "Prank" took place before the underwear displaying incident), but then I realized: OMG, you wrote it pre-DH!! That's amazing! I just assumed it was post-DH because of the Snape/Lily stuff. I didn't look at the dates until after I finished the whole fic. Really, do you or your co-author have any Seer blood in your families?
Anyway, I loved your fic! You both did such good characterization with everyone: Sirius, James, and Snivellus. It was very creative! Although, I do wish we could have seen a bit more of Remus. But this fic is excellent, there's no denying that. Great job!
And again: Seer blood?
Remus and Tonks forever!
"snickers* Fantastic. Poor Peter. You took the long way to get to the joke, but it was definitely worth it!
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Eleven stars out of ten. You did a truly amazing job with this fic and I loved reading it. You captured Remus's character and Potterverse werewolf prejudice perfectly. I was SO ANGRY when he was branded! Poor Remus! I was really sad when John died at the end. I grew quite attached to your interpretation of him in this fic. I hope you continue to write because you have a lot of talent. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must go read Part 2 from Silvia's perspective.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I\'m so pleased that you enjoyed this story so much. Now that the holidays are over, I\'m going to continue working on the third installment of thise series. :)
Wow! This is incredible! I just dicovered this story this morning, and I read the first few chapters and fell in love. My homework was negleted because I spent most of my day reading the whole of your story. It is clear to me that you have a gift for fiction writing. I think this is one of the things that makes your story so good: not only to you have an evident passion for Harry Potter and a talent for expanding on the Marauders' personalities, but you also have incredible writing skills that make this story impossible to stop reading. You have totally inspired me. I can't wait for the next chapter. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Aww, poor neglected homework :) I love the Marauders, there\'s so much we don\'t know about them that makes them fun to write about. Thanks for reading! Hopefully 20 will be up sometime this week.
Sirius is a loveable person, and so modest. Great chapter!
Sirius is a loveable person, and so modest. Great chapter!
Author's Response: Loveable, yes, and I hope that modest was sarcastic. He definitely wasn\'t modest in this chapter. Thanks for reading!
Another good chapter! Sad, yes, but still good.
Author's Response: Thanks!
I like how you did the bite scene from Greyback's perspective; it makes it different from other fics, and also very interesting. But I can see why there is a violence warning. The second to last paragraph is awful, but appropriately so. I don't have time to read the next few chapters now, but I will be back later to read them, and if they are as good as this one, I will definitely leave more reviews. Great first chapter!
Senem, I really liked the song! First of all, it actually had a rhythm. Most people just make they're songs rhyme and never mind a beat, but yours had a great meter. And the words were very original; saying the same thing, but in a unique way. Kudos! I liked this chapter, please update soon! -Anna
This is a really cute story! It had some clever stuff too; PlayWizard cracked me up. I think I'll read the sequel now. Great story!
Author's Response: I had lots of fun coming up with the PlayWizard scene. Thanks for the review!
Author's Response: Thanks!!
Giant spiders, malevolent bats, wizard scouts...werewolves. Tonks finds life in Hogsmeade far from simple, while Remus discovers having a partner in touch with her inner wolf complicates his mission and his heart.
So Dix approves, "Nym" can visit the pack when she wants, the blood magic is safe, Tonks didn't get the snot beat out of her by angry Slytherins for sporting Gryffindor colors, and she and Remus are off for a lovely time at a nice hotel? Hmm... some saying about "the calm before the storm" comes to mind...
Anyway, great chapter. You do an amazing job with OCs, by the way (not something you can always find in fan fiction). I'm just as curious to see what happens to Will and Lillie as I am Tonks and Remus. Update soon!
"The calm before the storm" is right on target! HBP was sucktacular at Christmas. I'm going to give Remus reason to be blue, sad to say. :(
Tonks and a pack of less-than-friendly werewolves (with one obvious exception :D). I don't know; I have a bad feeling about that...
Good chapter, though.
Author's Response: I think you and Remus share that feeling. Wonder if that will keep Tonks from the party? :D
