Beedle chapter 12 . 8/29
Well, what can I saw. This was a rollicking good read and I am SO impressed by the quality of your writing! Truly fantastic. Little hints you dropped in the early chapters aren't fully revealed until the end (such as Moody witnessing the second feral incident), which really makes this a masterpiece of suspense as well as family drama. And the characters are so fantastically well developed.
I see this was updated in 2010. I hope by now you are a published author.
Thank you for the read.

Hurrah for little Remus pulling through!
But grr for Greyback getting away...
Beedle chapter 10 . 8/29
Oh...and so he had very, very good reason for what he did. I'm sure Remus would forgive him, knowing this! 'Going feral' sounds terrifying, especially when illustrated with golden eyes.
Beedle chapter 9 . 8/29
Oh, poor Remus. This is heartbreaking.
Incredible descriptions. I feel as though I'm right there...
Beedle chapter 8 . 8/29
Oh my...the mystery unravels. What a powerful story this is. And somehow despite everything I feel sorry for Greyback and his awful history of neglect and abandonment. Reynard certainly made many mistakes in his self-righteousness and lack of tolerance and forgiveness. Not that he deserved what he got, but you can see both sides' point of view here, it's very cleverly done.
Beedle chapter 7 . 8/29
Oh my goodness...this chapter was a whirlwind of revelation! What a conclusion.
Beedle chapter 6 . 8/29
Ohhh dear. And if Diana had only woken him, just think how different the future could have been :S
Beedle chapter 5 . 8/29
Whoa...this is tense! What a mystery - you do the suspense brilliantly, revealing little clues as you go along. A sign of a well-plotted, thought-out story.
Beedle chapter 4 . 8/29
Wow, what a creative backstory. You write Reynard really well too, I'm feeling as though I know so much more about the Lupin family now!

This story must have been so well planned. I'm remembering the snippet of memory in the first chapter with Moody telling him to snap out of it and when that is going to come in, now that Moody is on the scene...
Beedle chapter 3 . 8/29
Your dialogue is flawless and flows perfectly. I love the pithy sentences Lupin comes out with: "Forgive me, but I'm fairly sure you never meant me to find out at all" and "The beginning usually works"...

Your writing is truly excellent. I am now very curious as to the nature of Reynard's disagreement with Fenrir...
Beedle chapter 2 . 8/29
McGonagall and Madame Pomfrey fussing over Remus is hilarious :D
The memories are terrifying, and you capture the thought processes of a very young boy brilliantly.

This story is so great, it should have more teviews. You foreshadowing was perfect with Rey's sister and the relationship between greyback and remus was so perfect. Wonderful job :)
