First sentence, I went ‘Oooh.’ Sirius in boxers. lol ‘Filch's voice cackled from outside. "Get used to it sonny, this is how I spend my Saturday nights!"’ haha What’s ‘groady’ mean? At the start of the Harry bit I was like What the Hell, but I liked how you linked it in, even if it was a bit random. I always thought Petunia was jealous of Lily, but she did seem a bit over vicious and evil hag-like.
Ooh, I loved Peeves' rhymes, especially “Nickety nack, ooh it’s Black, try to keep the ladies back!”. Hehe. I did have to reach for the dictionary for 'vernacular', but I have a fondness for weird long words too, so you can be forgiven :) I like how you portray Lily and Remus (and Sirius & James, but them mostly), but as, um, whoever reviewed before me said, Pettigrew could maybe be a bit more a friend, bit less an annoying tag-along.
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AMAZING CHAPPIE!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE DON'T MAKE US WAIT SO LONG FOR THE NEXT ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fav chapter so far I think. I like how you had James & Sirius use the mirrors. And yeah, loads of people like fictional charactors. I think there's an editorial on it on the main Mugglenet site if you're interested, although I'm not sure exactly where it was.
Author's Response: haha, well I thought it was very sweet that you went back and reviewed those chaps to my story, very sweet indeed. So glad you liked it. Yes I've seen that editorial on mugglenet... thanx :). I've been promising everyone chap15 soon, but all my plans have been thwarted by the mods... nothing against them, it's just my inability to conform to their rules. Hope you're having an awesome sumer. -Ama
Yay, go Moony and...McGavott, is that her name? Found it very amusing that James didn't attract any girls at all(human ones that is). Was it just deer, or all animals you liked him? Funny, but also nicely angsty in places (Sirius being jealous was good).
'and now the two fights were unrecognizable, whether they be plate vs. student, or Miason vs. Galloway' So funny. This one's my fav chapter so far, amazing way to start the year, and you got James and Lily just right too. I keep getting mixed up with all the girls Sirius has snogged/flirted with etc. lol
Really good. (Am sorry, I've said that for every chapter. Need to think of more interesting reviews). Liking that it's Sirius from Remus' POV - two best charactors at the same time :D
I was so nasty when I read this before, I hardly reviewed at all! So I'll make up for it now. The Narcissa incident was funny, and I liked how it changed from Sirius' memories to Remus' memories. Sirius and Remus. *sigh* lol. Great, again.
Aw, that sad about his family, the bit about not wanting to remember things and his father being abusive. Good chapter. Like having short chapters sometimes, means I can read more without my brain frying. Wonder how far I'll get before my brain *does* fry...?(what the hell?! Sorry for rambling)
I wonder if Kreacher was as creepy when Sirius was a kid as he is when Sirius gets out of Azkaban? Good chap, again. Liked the descriptions of his mum
Ok, haven't reviewed this chapter before, so here you are: Great chapter, it's kinda coming back to me now, but is just as good 2nd time round :D
I was looking through my favourites and decided to read this again, as I couldn't remember what happened. So I stick by my other review,but will explain what I meant - 'Author's Response: Down a rung or two? I don't understand, plz explain. Thanx tho -Ama' It basically means he's too cocky and could be with someone putting him in his place> I can't think of any other way to explain it :S But then, Sirius being cocky is all part of his charm :D
Just read the other chapters on fanfiction, they are just brilliant! Sorry can't write a review on there (It won't let me register) so I'll just say wow, don't doubt your ability to write you're so good and hopefully the mods will let you update. Thanks so much for this story! xxx
That picture in your summary is so GREAT! And log in finally seems to be fixed! YAY! So will you update on this site soon?
Author's Response: Ooh thanks! yes, I just updated. I've been trying to update for about two months now (an exasperating business, the mods are anal). You are so cool to check by so often, all you reviewers are so awesome. Life has been busy and so I'm going to give the weekly update. I'm currently working for a local paper so I have very little free time, and I'll be going on vacation soon so I hope to have a nice long chapter ready for the lot of you. My 17th b-day approaches and so I will be making Sirius 17 as well... *sigh* I know, but we all must grow old. Don't send hate mail to the mods and my best regards to you. -Amalynne
I just read this whole story in one sitting and i must say although it took awhile, it was amazing. I very much enjoyed all the chapters. I've never read a story from Sirius' point of view and i think it is smashing! Honestly, i absolutely love the way you wrote everyone. I can't wait for more chapters:)
come ~! oh i forgot you all are reading the 6th book still anyways i wont push you im just a cheerleader/fan telling you to keep going and take your time if you need it!!!
well, id just like to tell you i luuuvvvv ur story and iv been eating it up so im begging you to keep going
Great chapter, i'm liking this story alot so far and i especially love this paragraph: James is rather proud of the tallies Filch engraved on the back of his office door for our detentions. Remus reckons he needs a new door now, he's running out of room. We have files too! Judith Stebbins said I have my own drawer. That just gives me a warm, happy feeling inside. You know that feeling, the one where you love the world.....it's amazing, i will read the rest as soon as i can =)
Wow. This is a really awesome story. Personally, I like your portrayal of Remus very much. I really love his character as it is. Hoorah for Lupin! Hem hem. Anyway... he seems much more realistic than is often shown. I don't know about the position of Peter though... I mean, he would have had to have been trusted and respected as a friend in some reguards... But it is still a version of him that works very well. The Lily/James situation is also really well done. I mean, just how they are both realistic characters that can, in some regards, be related with, yet they are not perfect or simple. You have made a truly amazing story. All the memories are linked so well with each other, yet still remain believable. Congrats!
Phew! Just read all of you chapters - there really good I like the way Remus gets to see his romance with a girl through Sirius' eyes and the marauders are just great. Hope chapter 15 gets accepted soon!
