Thanks for being 1 of the few to even acknowledge the TRASH move Remus made in DH. The few times I see it mentioned it's dismissed as out of character but how is running away from moral obligation and guilt (instead of just paying it pithy lip service) ooc?? He's been doing this from the start or I guess we also have to forget that he omitted to tell Sirius' illegal animagus to Dumbledore. He literally put saving face over Harry's safety and proved he couldn't be fully trusted.
Lol you’re welcome mate. I have a lot of issues with Remus and hero worship of his character. I mean, he’s chill. He reminds me of one of my best friends, who will hide in his room to avoid confrontation. I don’t dislike the character. But he’s not perfect. He really lets Harry down, not to mention Tonks. Their relationship is sus as fuck, on both sides. He had the opportunity to be a stable presence in Harry’s life, but fails to commit. He can’t commit. But he got fucked over by his friends.
I like that Alfonso Cuaron told his actor to play him like a “gay junkie”. Lupin’s the character closest to my lifestyle, and he’s probably a really cool guy. He and Snape would probably have made good friends, if they met as adults, but also been ferociously jealous of each other. He’s got a lot of issues about the past he refuses to confront. And that’s interesting, except when most fans take it at face value and worship the Marauders. Who really did not at all have healthy friendships. They betray Lupin, and Peter betrays them all. There’s no trust and little love, there, it’s really only Sirius & James.
