I loved the chapter... so far the best of the lot


Author's Response: Glutton for punishment, aren't you? I felt really cruel writing it. Our hero has been launched on a very painful journey.

I love your OC's.... they seem so well developed and Lucius is Lucius... you wrote him brilliantly


Author's Response: I'm glad you didn't say you loved Lucius. I think he's horrible, even at sixteen. But keep an eye on Ariadne; her development will be important to the plot.

I love it.... it's pretty crazy... no one knew what happened of Remus during those thirteen years.... it's brilliant the way you have written it


Author's Response: Thanks, Calamur. Since we don't know what happened, wouldn't you say that anyone's guess was fair game? Plenty of stories have been written about that period, and I suspect mine isn't the worst.

I like the start... it's got loads of potential... having said that it's a huge risk you are taking writing a fic with Lupin as the main protagonist.... I think it should work. :-)


Author's Response:

Thanks for reviewing. I'm interested to know why you think Lupin's a "risky" protagonist. Did you just mean that if the characterisation flops, the whole story will fail? If so, I agree. Or do you think that Lupin stories are controversial in the fandom? I hope I manage to meet your expectations.

I've read this before, of course, but I am always fascinated by your take on the 'nust and bolts' of the Wizarding World, In the first chapter of course there is your vivid description of the maneuvering and calculations required for large Transfigurations. And then in this chapter, I love how off-hand you make it seem: 'Remus was kept busy enlarging bedrooms and conjuring beds' 'Mr Kenneth MacDougal was...placing amplification and equalisation charms over the wireless.' 'William was diplomatically sent to move sheep so that he would not upset the delicate spell-work in the house.' 'William...often sabotaged his own spells by forgetting the chain of events before it was completed.' And I believe you've added a bit more *crackle* to Remus's confrontation with Snape. Makes me shiver! And you hit perfectly upon the way a party of pure-bloods celebrating Voldie's first downfall would look to an outsider: '[Remus] glanced around, rather surprised at how many he had met before, and even more surprised at the combination of guests. He did not like to ask about the tactlessness of inviting Amelia Bones to share the room with Lucius Malfoy, or of seating the Macmillans so close to the Parkinsons. Whatever did these people have in common? Suddenly he knew. All, without exception, were pure-bloods. “I know you’re surprised,” [Ariadne] said. “My parents see nothing odd in gathering all their friends together. Nobody here – officially – ever did anything wrong, so all of them – officially – are glad to celebrate You-Know-Who’s downfall.” Perfectly chilling!!

Author's Response:

“I’ve read this before” – snort. I take it as a very high compliment that you’re not yet tired of the story. We have to set the story in the magical world, otherwise it isn’t Harry Potter fanfiction. I’m glad you’ve picked up on all the relationships, because there were a lot of characters milling around the stage, and several of the respectable people are in fact very chilling. Thanks for all your input over the last 12 months.
