Wow. I have always wanted to know what Remus thought about Sirius after Lily and James' deaths in the context of a WolfStar relationship. I think this was amazing, although it was painful to read. You write beautifully; poetically, but effectively. I could read your descriptions again and again and be newly delighted each time. Thank you for posting :D

Such poignant prose. Love can cripple as well as liberate & I think you've captured that here. I see it's from a while ago, but lovely and I am on my way to searching out other works from you.

...Damn. Very powerful, very moving, and far too beautiful for it's own good. I loved the intensity of emotion; you've painted such a complete picture of pain and sorrow and anger and loneliness that I almost feel like I could reach out and...I don't know...touch it, feel it, be it?
And look, now I'm going all badly poetic.
Anyway, I loved it very much. (But one thing - I think you should go through and proofread because I found an error or two).

The first of all of them begins, Who are you? This is, by some stroke of strange fortune, very close to 'Who goes there?' The world is a meshwork of irony and agony and ecstasy, balanced on precariously invisible scales.
I have lived this. Even word for word, "Who are you?"; I recognize more than just the essence. Breathtaking as the language and romantic ideas in this story undoubtedly are, that was what pierced me-that it was so familiar, it nearly verged on the supernatural. I am going to remember your writing.

This is beautiful. Very realistic. You portray Remus' feelings very well, especially the last letter is wonderful.
And, atleast to me, this line was most powerful: "Four were the professor's; one was Remus's."
I'm also a fan of shoebox_project, so thanks for that too. :)

This is brilliant, fabulous.
I cannot think of any way to improve it, your mastery of language is exquisite

Gods, you write better than I know how to /breathe/. I feel inept and inadequate even writing a review.
"Together, they would form a patchwork monster of blame and desire and despair."
Oh. The pace is lovely, steady, and the flow is perfect, starting with a trickle and slowly increasing in intensity as the story goes on. And I love how it ends, with hope but yet in helplessness that so fits the contradiction in Remus himself.
"Look what a poet you have made me, Sirius Black. What a dreadful, lonely poet."
"It is a love that frightens even myself when I awake from it as if from a dream to read my own handwriting. I love you, I think suddenly, I feel suddenly, as terribly as I love the moon."
Oh, these lines /broke/ my heart. You captured Remus' ache almost painfully, and the way he fights and claws in himself between his love and his hate, and how he keeps letting his love and hate and passion entwine in this mish mash of /intensity/.
Okay, I'm going to stop waxing lyrical right now, and I'm just going to, like, run away before I steal your brain.
... And before I continue to say stupid things like that.
(I love everything you right. You are teh cool. That is all.

Sniff... So beautiful...
| Rose chapter 1 . 7/28/2003
This is excellent, but I'm something of a "Coeur de Loupe" fan, so please will you write some more of that one, too? I think this story would make quite a good epilogue for it.

That was absolutely gorgeous. It was pure, sheer, beautiful genius.

*applauds* I'm not much of a Harry Potter fan, but I found myself much more entertained by the books with the introduction of Sirius and Lupin. All the same, if this hadn't been by you, I probably wouldn't have read it. But I did, and it was fantastic. Your writing style is so unique . . . it's bitter, sharp, precise, and yet poetic and passionate. It gives a very *human* feel.
