| Pen-Name-Kitsune-chan chapter 19 . 8/30/2009
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 ;]

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.

I ran across you by accident and read The Wounded first. I cried at the end you are skilled at depicting emotions with words. It was so sad to think that a person's happiest moments in life were spent as a dog. Even at this point in the next story we are uncertain as to the ending of this tale. It coul actually end either way and still be considered a happy ending. I am truly grateful that you were kind enough to leave the story up for suc a long time. What a wonderful opportunity I would have missed, reading this tale. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry I didn't have the urge to log in.. But this was definitely a superb story. You are a good writer.
| Gray Wings chapter 19 . 3/24/2008
This astonished me. Honestly, I am more yaoi/slash fan of the couple, but this story seriously showed me that the body does not really matter, as long as the people are comparitable.
I am probably talking nonsense right now; I am really tired, so I will use it as an excuse. _
Wonderful story ten times over.
| shogi chapter 17 . 9/1/2007
Hey there! I'm back! Hahaha, anyways, I had a question. I was wondering if you could explain the name of this one to me? Like, where did you get it from or what meaning it has? I sort of have an idea but it'd be cool to hear what it really is from the one who named it. Thanks! Great story, as always. I had to review here 'cause I already reviewed at the end. :D
| iamthedreadpirateroberts chapter 19 . 8/19/2007
Woah. I had no clue when this fanfic was written until this chapter (I always review the last chapter). It's rather old, seeing as it's the August after Deathly Hallows came out. I've been reading it over the past week, and I must say, it's wonderful. Better than my own stuff, but a main contributer to that is that I don't see it through. I could never post up nineteen chapters. I lose the idea too fast, or another one hits.
I'm not easily distracted! I'm easily amused, that's all. [Yeah right, but there's no way I'm telling anyone that! ;)]

Wow... I think I said that for the other one too but... wow...
Amazing job and totally believable! It's one of the best pieces I've read and never of these two. Gender-bending, how phenomenal! Brilliant idea! I loved it whole-heartedly! And it's not a dry-cut happy ending, they both still have problems which will need work and that also makes your story wonderful. I find it too hard to comprehend sometimes when, at the end of the story, everything's all tickity-boo. That's not real, not... believable.
Oh! Hahaha! Snape's proposal almost made me fall off the chair! I think I was just as shocked as Remus! Poor guy, I *was* wondering how on earth he was going to go about telling Remus he loved her but that was brilliant and so very appropriate for Severus.
Excellent work! I plan to check out the rest of your works so maybe you'll hear from me soon!
(Did you say sequals?)
Oh yes, another thing I remembered: please tell your beta, was it Michelle? thanks for convincing you to write this idea out. Fanfiction, doesn't the little blurb say "Release your imagination" or something or other? No idea is too weird for FF!
| willyork chapter 10 . 4/23/2007
this is gonna be a LONG process isn't it? poor remus, HE doesn't see it, where any girl would at least have a niggling... and severus'd NEVER say anything. i think you really got it perfect when you said he had victorian sensibilities- that's exactly right. Now if only everyone else realized that... *sigh*
| Kirinin chapter 1 . 4/11/2007
OMG - Umbridge! You evil, evil person! I literally gasped aloud when she was introduced. Yes, she *was* responsible for dealing with the werewolves, wasn't she? I seem to recall that she passed some truly terrible legislation that was hinted at in canon, and I have to suspect her motives.
I guess she's recovered from her stint in the woods? Or perhaps she's become a werewolf, herself? Searching for motivation, here...
| GossamerLily chapter 19 . 2/23/2007
This was an absolutely wonderful fanfic. I loved the voices you gave to the characters. I enjoyed reading ever word.
