It made me cry.

Beautiful story! Very poignant and well done.

"So tonight, he cried, for Sirius, for James, for Lily, and even for little Peter, who had betrayed them. For all he had lost. For all he was, and could have never been without his friends." Fabulous.

And despite previous conflicts, your translation of the title is correct. "Ad Astra per Aspera" translates into "to the stars through difficulties". Kansas state motto, ya know.

Great story, I just have one suggestion for future stories: werewolves are supposed to be allergic to silver and can't touch it. Maybe the chandelier could have been made of something else?

Sob. this made me cry. i have always been transfixed by how Remus must have felt when he thought Sirius betrayed James and Lily, and how alone he was and is after Sirius died, and you caught the feeling pretty well.

Well done. It is, as you say, an odd piece. But it feels true to Remus. I enjoyed it

Wow! I love lupin...
“Maybe one day, not so far from now, we’ll all be together again, the Marauders. We’ll wreak havoc again, in death. Too bad it can’t be today.”
That's the way he must be feeling...great job! It seems hard to put that feeling in words, but you did it!!!

This was lovely! Really sad, but in a good way! You seem to have captured Remus just perfectly.

Beautiful. Absolutely heartwarming. I've been searching for a story/fanfic just like this one ever since OotP came out. I felt that your piece delivered what the book was lacking: Remus's reaction to Sirius's death. Excellent work!

P.S. It might be a coincidence, but your story matches so well with a saying I once read somewhere:

"To the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure." - Unknown.

Lizzie, as always your writing is truly beautiful. I'm not sure if I should thank you more for writing it, or for dedicating it to me. :p Love you dearie, and wonderful job.

Amen. Indeed, I still cannot believe it and I have known about this since 21st June.

*glares at the author notes* Yes, to the STARS indeed. I hate typos. Especially in the Author Notes where Z can't catch them. :)

Brilliant! I feel so bad for Remus, as all his friends are gone. He was very In Character! Magnificent fic!

what a lovely piece!

but isn't it "to the STARS through difficult places"? and that Sirius is a bright star? not start? just checking...
