Ah, man, I really dig this! The seriously, did you take something line was a great comedic break in the heaviness.
You incorporated Remus and Sirius grappling with their own sagacity in a completely beautiful way. Loved it ♥.
What a beautiful honest moment between these two. I think he must have struggled with thoughts just like these, with so much take from him, just tragic. I really enjoyed this!!
You took something that is incredibly angsty and turned it--ever so slightly--into something acceptable and well, real. This fic is truly the epitome of 'Pain shared is pain halved.' Very nice!
Very canon and it felt very real. I actually like this time period. They're men, they've both been beaten by their lives but they had hope here. Of course, SOB, this is so canon.......
This is beautiful. Remus is doing his best to give Sirius back some of his happiness. I love the bit about the first time Sirius held Harry--especially that Remus thought Sirius wouldn't give him back!
The ending has just the right touch of pain, but shared pain and togetherness.
That was really lovely and i could very much see sirius feeling that way after azkaban. remus was so kind and patient, but more that that you showed us that he really understood how poor sirius was feeling. this juts made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. thank you.
Oh, Sirius. *cuddles him* This is wonderfully done, even if it hurts to read. Nice use of the prompt.
You write the dialogue and the lines around it excellently. Sirius’s lack in memories sounds just like it should be on the basis of canon. I love Remus’s reaction, too: the first questions, then his eagerness to help buy describing those past moments and by promising new memories. This is so poignant: It’s not the same. Oh, the cracks are a good touch, too.
Oh, that is really, really lovely!
