Wow. Surprisingly well done. Normally, I expect to find gender switch fics to be kind of raunchy and PWP, but you really try to keep with the character and underline the mystery of the transformation. Lupin's reaction reminds me a bit of Amalthea's in Peter Beagle's 'The Last Unicorn'. Two thumbs up!

Yay for OnAntiDepressants!Snape!
This is the second Fem!RL x SS fanfic I've read, and I think this is positively brilliantly done :]

Absolutely loved this.

You are brilliant! I had to read through all of it, from Practically Brothers to this, but it was SO worth it. I love how you made it all flow together.
Personally, I really liked how you wanted Severus to suicide. Most creative way I've seen for any story to date.

i very much enjoyed both stories. I hope that one day you will do a third story. I'd love to see Remus and Severus having a family. _

A real classic in the fandom, even years after I first read it. Your characterisation is perfect, and dialogue is used brilliantly whilst the writing style stays accessible.
I'd just recommended this to a friend and not mean to read it again, and here we are at 21m again. XD
Good luck in escaping accounting!

I understood Snape's journey through depression. I don't get what Lupin is doing here. I don't understand the premise: why should Lupin or would Lupin need to change genders to love Snape or himself?
I understand the journey of a hated minority. I don't get becoming the majority in order to win acceptance. This is beyond me.

as a 1.78m girl in a country where the average height for an adult male is 1.72m, this chapter made me tear up. effectively, questions that i've been asking myself since i was a kid appeared in lupin's musings. the fact i am manlier than most of the guys, both in actions and shape shake guys with low self-esteem and the teasing can sting. so, reading this chapter is kinda cathartic.
i feel his pain. you've also put him across as so measured and mature and yet still so overwhelmed. pretty awesome stuff. i like how everything's so delicate and not-in-your-face with snape and lupin's interactions. nice, compared to the usual "omg, he's so hot, we must suck face" kinda vibe most fanfiction throw out. i shall stop now and continue reading the fic, lol.

I really loved this story. It's amazingly well written, and you kept everyone in character, and had them react to situations very realistically. Plus, it made perfect sense despite my not having read the prequels :)
The last part between Remus ans Severus was really sweet, too

Argh, I've tried several times to review this over a couple of days but FFN keeps eating it. *sulks*
*cough* Anyway. I don't normally like this pairing (or slashish stuff in general) or gender switching. I honestly didn't expect to like this fic at all and only clicked on this out of groggy curiosity.
Surprise, surprise I read it all in one go and absolutely loved it, haha. So congratulations on doing such a great job on writing this fic that I forgot all the reasons that I shouldn't like it and just let myself go along for the ride. :)
You kept his core personality intact while altering *just* enough to make him female, which I liked. SuperGirly!Lupin would be creepy and too OOC, I think, but the subtle shift worked out very well. It was also thought provoking for me to consider gender roles and the connotations that this switch would have in Muggle society. His interactions with Severus really sealed the deal.

Ok, that was effing adorable! I loved it so so so much, and you have such a talent for writing! Oh my goodness, teh characterizations were lovely and Snape and Lupin's relationship before and after his transformation were very cute and believable. Much love for you and this fan-freaking-tastic story :]
One thing though - I think it's spelled Dolores, not Delores ;]
| xxx chapter 19 . 1/20/2009
a great THANX ! i hope for a sequel
| Harriverse chapter 19 . 9/12/2008
I found your story delightful. It was nicely developed and wonderfully written. Now I have to go back and read your other work!
| Pipamonium chapter 6 . 6/5/2008
I just found this story. I've read the previous two and loved them but for some reason never heard of this one. You have no idea how hard it is to not just start laughing out loud and 'oo'ing at everything. I'm getting enough looks from the people around me at my smiles and jittery-ness. This is SO good. I keep wanting to reach in and hug Remus and Severus. I read your comment about being a Raman 1/2 fan and had to say... I'm one too. My friend introduced me to it a few months ago and I think I'm use to the idea enough not to be annoyed by your use of it in the story. I can't WAIT to see where this goes! I would have waited until the end of the story to review but I'm so antsy and LOVEING this so much I couldn't wait until the end to say something. Good gracious! If you EVER need a beta for any further stories I'd LOVE to help out! Send me an e-mail - I love your writing so much I'd be willing to beta anything for you even if it isn't my normal cup of tea. Heck! The way you've gone about this series isn't my normal cup of tea (I generaly read slash and slash only) but from you it is.
