A beautiful letter...truly touching, but not corny. A bit of a slide for Sirius, but in a great direction and most definitely not to the point where he's out of character... we all have those sentimental times, don't we? You captured Padfoot in a remarkable form. Tremendous work!
I find it kind of sad, because we basically know that Prongs will never read it. (sniff) I like how you added little bits of humor here and there. Great story! Or should I say letter?
I liked this. It did sound a lot like Sirius. The saddest line, I think, was this one: " But on that night in the far future when we are old and I give this letter to you, know that it was everything I wanted to say to my best friend, but felt I couldn’t. " It just made me really sad because Sirius and James never get to grow old. It's really a shame; its one of the parts of Harry Potter that is so realistic, and therefore all the more depressing. Don't get me wrong - I love Harry Potter, and I thought this was a great fic. But behind all the magic and wand waving, there's a reality that's not always fun. -DCF aka Christina
I read Distant Faces and I thought that atht was good so I decided to go insearch of your other fics and I found this. I think it's very good, though not quite as good as Distant Face, and this was also very emotive - your writing certainly has potential and I urge you to carry on with it. I couldn't help but notice the irony when you wrote 'The Sirius Black, cry!' and when in Distant Faces he borke down - and whether that was intentional or not I thought that was very clever - and I like the idea of Sirius watching James grow up and feel as though he should to - which seems quite his style, and makes me feel even more upset hat he's ... gone - especially when I read the bit when he said he would someday repay his deb of friendship with James. Anyway, I'm unsure as to how you are not getting any reviews, really - your writing is very good, as I have already said - and again, I think this is absolutely great. I'll stop waffling now - wrote far to much! Anyway, well done - keep up with the good work and perhaps write a longer story now - I'd love to read it! Luv, Ermine
