I beg to differ.
Yeah, Remus was a bit weak in school.
I suppose it could have turned out badly. But, just imagine he only saw Black. I still reckon he would've run down to the Shack to face off with him at wandpoint and get the kids to safety. The same sequence of events could have easily still occurred, as Snape had not yet brought Remus the Potion that day. He was arriving at Remus' office to do so when he saw the Map, saw Remus 'running down the the tunnel and out of sight' and leapt to his own conclusions, chasing after him and leaning the goblet behind!
Hermione Granger after all only says Remus "didn't take his potion tonight" when she realised.
Oh, and as for "controlling his friends properly" check out chapter -5- I think of my story, Wolf&Nymph: A Tale. That will explain things better than I could right now. I'm tired and rambling.

I like the logic you put into Remus' reason for helping Sirius. I would have never thought of it that way, it was very creative on your part. :)

Very nice. Very good point.

Great story! I love how it follows canon while still leaving Harry room to think and have different perspective without being different from book Harry. Plus you touched on a point I now wonder about in the books, why didn't he tell and why he was so distant.

I wanted to like this because I'm very keen on well thought-out expositions on canon, but ultimately you relied as your "little known flaw" as the fanon of packs, betas, alphas, cubs to underpin your arguments for Snape but those notions are nowhere in canon. It was solid as to Snape's concerns but then trying to bolster them with fanon was unfortunate. It is also glaring that you do not address Snape's own inept handling of the situation in the Shrieking Shack thus turning it into a disaster of his own making because he too had his own agenda, which is often overlooked in trying to prove Snape's motives have more credence than either of the other two. I was hoping for a proper consideration of the canon time-frame and balancing of the three's motives, all of which can stand much deeper inspection because all are multi-layered.
That said, it was nicely written, but you need to watch that your apostrophes: Patronuses (not Patronus's) and Potions (not Potion's).

Love that story. It was the first one that I'v seen like it. Well written and I just really enjoyed reading it. That doesn't happen too often now.

I would have loved a scene like this in the real books.
It makes much more sense! Even when I read that book, I was young and I remmember thinking that Snape was awful... xD
I suppose you need to grow up to know that not everything it's what it seems.
