|After further consideration, I have decided that Remus is not in character on certain points, primarily his view of Severus. In OotP Remus is portrayed, not as agreeing with his friends, but because of his fear of desertion he chooses to do nothing. Yes that's cowardly and by doing nothing he was guilty also, but I don't think he thought Severus deserved it. Some things he may have felt were simply equivalent as pay back. He no doubt tried to convince himself at the time that he was doing what he ought to, he's too thoughtful to be able to delude himself that long. I think he would have seen more of Severus's side and even though he convinced himself not to at the time eventually he would have. I don't know if any of that makes sense or not, I don't half the time. But I'm very fond of Remus so I read a lot of fics about him. I've seen quite a few variations on his character and I think you're pretty close but not quite there. However, maybe when future things are revealed (I squeak happily at the thought) I will have greater understanding. So if you actually bothered to read all that, thank you for listening to my concerns. |
Author's Response: I agree with you on Remus -- he doesn't quite fit canon, after what we see in OoTP. Please bear with us, though: The bulk of this was written or outlined about a year before OoTP came out. We were going by our own educated and semi-educated guesses (not to mention some far-fetched thoughts). The canon characters may differ a bit because of when we started, and we have pretty much decided to stay on with our outline, with a few very minor exceptions. Thank you for reviewing!

|I thought I would have a heart attack when I saw a new chapter had been added! THANK YOU, THANK YOU. THANK YOU!!!! This look back in time (happier times) was well done and gives us a little insight as to Remus's perceptions of Snape (not really good and sort of showing him as pretty much the same spitefull, grudge holding, bastard that he has been proved to be so far...in other words...the same as he was as a teenage boy). I miss Snape terribly and hope you put him back in the story sometime soon in a big way. I have missed this story so I am SO glad you have not given up on it yet!!! Please keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Thank YOU for sticking with us! No, we have not abandoned this story. Just school and work (both full time) have kept me quite busy. Yes, we shall see Snape again, rest assured. The continuation of this chapter should be forthcoming in the near future.
