    After re-reading I cant help but feel sorry for them all. They came together all with their different backgrounds and formed a friendship that seemed to be so strong. I hate the way it ended, James being murdered protecting his family, Sirius falsely imprisoned in azkaban for 12years , then to come out live like a fugitive and meet his end in such a cruel way, Peter the rat giving in it evil and betraying the friends who would have died for him and finally Remus who's has such a cruel life.

    I particularly feel sorry for Remus the last only true marauder, from what we've read it seemed the only real family he had were the marauders. They accepted him and helped him at risk to themselves , where other wizards would look down upon him. In his eyes two of his brothers died and the other imprisoned for betrayal. I don't think he had anywhere to turn and just carried his burden alone and just disappeared for 12years until his return to Hogwarts. He then saw two of marauders once more only to see death and betrayal all over again. I was glad that JK gave him Tonks, but I just feel he wont survive the end battle.

    I just find it hard to come terms with how such close friends of whom were popular and admired at Hogwarts could have turned out like this. Fate has been to cruel to them. Peter has gone way past forgivness but I would like to see him redeem himself even its in the smallest way just so we can see his grifindor colours.

    Anyways thats the end of my rant sorry if I bored any of you .

    It's all very true, and very sad. I'd love to hear more about Remus's past, before we met him at Hogwarts, although I fear it wouldnt be particularly cheerful! It is a shame because especially when you see them in the memories being all clever and full of life etc, and compare that to now, and it's Voldemort who destroyed all that. Spose its all to give Harry greater motivation to get rid of him, so he doesnt destroy any more lives etc.

    V glad Lupin has Tonks though :suith: I think he'll survive the series for definite, esp as JKR has said theyre going to get married and have lots of multicoloured werewolf cubs yayyy.

    Remus is a very special character and his story really touches me(haha, touching me jokes). And it's not just because he's a werewolf that I sympathize:p:

    I wish he could have stayed on to teach DADA. That would've been cool but unfeesible.

    Mainly because parents would never allow a Werewolf to teach in the school

    Is it just me or does that seem to draw parellels with racial discrimination in our society today?

    I might be studying too much literature these days

    No, its completely true.

    Although this is slightly different as werewolfs can be dangerous.
