Chapter: Only Rain

First off, allow me to say that I absolutely love your writing, not just in this story, but in your other works as well. You have a great talent in telling the story very powerfully and . . . Oh, I'm at a loss for words to describe this story and what I think of it.

I guess I'll just say that I think this story is wonderful. Very powerfully told, yet you don't drag the things out until they become dull, in a way. You're characterisation of Sirius is so insightful, and I just love the connections made to the rain. I've always felt rain is a great detail to include in stories, though it does tend to be in danger of being overkilled at times. This particular stories holds all the power in the symbolism of the rain and how Sirius feels towards it.

Like I said, this story is just wonderful. I really don't have any particular criticism about it. Though it's short, I think it works, and it probably would have hurt if made longer.

Again, and I can't seem to say this enough, I loved it, as well as all of your writing. There's a reason that you've been on my favourites for a while, after all!

Wow. This is another absolutely amazing story, Noldo.

Apart from the fact that I totally love Sirius and anything Sirius-related, I love this fic because of the plot. Although itís very short and to the point, itís beautifully written and there is a lot of feeling in every word in the story, and its mingled with a bit of angst as well. :)

I think you were able to interpret Siriusí character extremely well Ė as always, I cannot detect any hint of OOCness. :)

Overall itís brilliant Ė well done.

Here's your overdue review for your wonderful banner services!

Wonderfully written! I enjoyed the short and sweet snippets of Sirius' dark past. I thought it would be more effective by putting them in order chronologically wise though.





I also love the way you used your setting to bring about your mood, especially the repetition of rain. How ironic how it didn't rain when he died.





Another thing that caught my eye was your sentences. You structured it so that there was almost always only one sentence for each paragraph. Though there were a couple of "run-ons" overall, they added to the fluidity of your story.



Again, wonderfully done!

Wow! Well ... hem hem ... wow. Having never read any of your stories, I'm now so very surprised at how such an author could have escaped my notice--what's more an author that belongs to the same house as me. Your writing is simply splendid, I love what you do with your characters and this story was especially moving for me. The way you displayed Sirius' life and feelings as in a sort of timeline of bad thing after bad thing, the use of rain as a metaphor, the Marauder interaction, but most of all, the heart-breaking ending (for me, at least), were all wonderfully done. I applaud you as I go to read more of your fics! Here's to Sirius! Keep up the wonderful work. Rating-10.

Chapter: Only Rain

Amazing work as always. The mood was so well written that I actually felt like I was Sirius at some point. You've shown me that it doesn't require a 1000 words to make a good story. Every word was so suited for that particular line, that the whole thing is actually perfect. Fantastic job! P.S. I miss your use of present tense, though, but I guess you can't do that here as he died... It was wonderful even then! ~bL

Once again your writing is very moving and just makes me want more. I love the way you used the rain in this fic and tied it in with his feelings. Although your style is a little different than your other fics it still has that unique storytelling thouch to it. My favourite part was where he shows up at Prongs' house...I loved that little bit of Marauder interaction ad the way they can read each other so well...Thanks for another great fic...=)

OMG! Poor Padfoot! *sobsob* A very touching, simple story, especially to me. As you can probably tell, Sirius is my favorite HP character, and even though he is now gone, he will never be forgotten by those who cheered him on when he was found innocent. *sniff* By those who laughed with him at his pure hatred of Snape. By those who nodded sympathetically when he remembered his family. By those who cried and hated JK Rowling when he fell through the veil. (Not really but you get the idea.) Listen to me, I sound like a eulogy. I loved this fic and hope you keep writing. 100/10 stars!!!

Simple and moving. Quite different from your other stories, where you use longer sentences, but I think it wouldn't have worked so well here. The simplicity is what, in my view, lifted it to a whole new height. All in all, simply great. :) Loved it.

Yay! First review! I didn't know quite what to make of this. It's like different ideas all bundled together, so congratulations if that's what you were aiming for!

But it was about Sirius and Lupin, so in my eyes, yeah it was good!
