Why This Must Be Read: Original Characters are not every reader's cup of tea; having been burned too many times by bad grammar, plot holes and Mary Sues a lot of people avoid them like the plague. This isn't one of those fics; in fact Calliope DeSole is probably one of my favorite OC's in fan fiction. The author doesn't fall into the trap of shortchanging the canon characters as she tries to build up her OCs, as a matter of fact Sirius (and his antics) was probably one of the best things about this fic. She made Remus/Calliope work as a friendship and a romance and makes the reader root for them to succeed; this is a fic that every het fan will enjoy.
