This story and it's predecessor are just simply gorgeous. You write both R & S incredibly well, but especially Severus, I think.
Very emotional to read, coming up to the end when you know what Severus is talking about, and Remus doesn't, and you hope that he'll be able to remember the promise he made. And then he does and *sniffle*
I found this story beautiful and moving I feel sorry for Severus, because in the end he always have to sacrifice himself and to do it alone. But at list you gave him a bit of hope and love. I hope you'll write a sequel, ignoring the orrible ending of the seveth book (because sometimes canon is so overrated, really). I'm italian, so try to forgive my bad english.
Author's Response: thank you so much for your kind review! i've written a companion piece to this story that i will be posting soon that fleshes out their relationship a little. as for a noncanon compliant sequel - when i started this series, i didn't plan to write any such thing, but lately i have been thinking that i might.
