aww that was such a lovely romantic story, yet so heartbreaking. I was absolutely bawling at the end. I loved your characterization and the whole back story, very well done.
oh, that was lovely, but oh so sad. i cried at the end, especially when harry said that he thought he missed remus.
i love how you used canon to make au so perfectly au. your lily and james were perfect, too. it all was.
oh, and what a cool use of the games theme! you should get a bonus for that.
*sobs a little* What a gorgeous fic. I like how good Remus and Sirius are for each other here, how they make each other so very happy, even if they don't get as many years to do so as they should. Your Lily is an absolute delight, and James's "FAG STAG" T-shirt totally cracked me up. :-) I also liked the little allusions to canon. Really nicely done, anon. ♥
OMG! Tears are dripping down my face! Incredible piece! There were some wonderfully funny moments and I loved all the canon references!
Oh, dear, that actually made me cry. What a lovely, thoughtful fic.
God, that was heartbreaking. Beautifully written and romantic. I'm still weeping (really... weeping) so that is all. :)
Oh, how wonderful was that story! And you fit the theme of the games-thing so well, too, with that Gay Pride Parade and Lily's fabulous outfit. Not only did I love Sirius and Remus here, but I loved James and Lily, too. All your characters were very real and well-made and I just through that this story was wonderful!
Amazing the way you blended canon characters into an entirely different world! What I would give to have seen them all on the day of the gay pride parade that you mention! Like bookgrrrl2006
, I think there should be a special prize for actually incorporating this year's theme so exactly! Lovely tale even though it left me crying like the wuss that I am......
YOU MADE ME CRY! *kicks in shin*
i love how realistic this fic is and really then i was so happy Sirius didn't let Remus' issues end the relation ship. lovely fic.
