He's damn gorgeous - you said it ! Your Sirius is AWESOME !!
Author's Response: Aw...thank you so much! I think Sirius is one of those people who are larger than life, so full of life that they make a deep impact on everyone around them (for good or ill, lol)
No seventeen year old boy should be this sexy !!! It's Siriusly sinful !
Author's Response: Luckily for Rosmerta, life's not fair! :D
Sirius, the Matchmaker was just so swee ; Sirius, the bitter brooding presence in the bar was 'Black Magic' with a vengeance ! But Lily, the Dissembler, little Miss HoityToity , hey that's not fair! Sirius didn't have issues with Lily. I like your portrayal of Rosmerta though - vulnerable and all !
Author's Response: Do people always judge others fairly and objectively? It's all about perception. Sirius and James were a double act, the Fred and George of Marauders. Call one a toerag...lol... Sirius didn't have issues in the end, but I think in the beginning was a different story, and makes their eventual friendship more 'real'. I hope you'll think so too!
Jelous Sirius. What a wondrous sight! Never thought I'd live to... read the day... Ahem! >_>
Fabulous! You had me hooked from the beginning of the chap. ^_^ Hahah, courting flowers. Very amusing. I did suspect something to be out of place since the girl faery giggled and her father, or whatever, shook his head. LOL. Good one.
Author's Response: They say cats always land on their feet, but Sirius makes a case for dogs too, LOL. Love the phrase 'read the day'! Thanks! ^_^
Interesting, but I'm waiting for the plot to thicken ...
Author's Response: Think of jello- first it's liquid goodness, then it jells. :D
Author's Response: or gels....however you spell it, lol.
Your Sirius in this is very flesh-and-blood-real . And Rosmerta too. Nice chapter - strong yet gentle.
Author's Response: Thank you! He's very 'real' when I write, so I'm glad that comes through! ^_^
I am OVERWHELMED ! Terrific, terrific writing. Great style. Gorgeous characterizations , esp drop-dead gorgeous Sexy Sirius ! And that goes for the previous chapters too !!!!
Author's Response: I'm overjoyed by your review! ^_^ Thank you so much. I hope you like it even more as you read on!
When are you going to update?
PS: Nominations for the Quicksilver Quills are done, but I thought you might like to put this banner by StaceyLC on your author page (unless you have a name on the forums, then you can put it in your sig). I hope this works.... http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i296/DirectorWannbe/QSQ/QSQRomanceNC.jpg
Author's Response: I want to update, but the queue's jammed! R/H and R/T cats don't validate as quickly as this wonderful cat (with its fabulous mod) does. I'm going to send you a private thank you, but there's a public one on my author page if you want to take a look! ^_^
After reading your chapter, I went and googled Artemis Fowl. I clicked on the first site and it said that a fifth book is coming out! Now I'm going to be prowling around bookstores and libraries... searching.... *prowls* :D Prowling is fun!
Author's Response: The Lost Colony was supposed to come out on the twelfth of this month, so it should be easy to find. I'm a casual fan, lol, I haven't read more than the first couple (don't tell! :D)
Cannibal... *snorts* How have I not known that Fiona's married name was Fowl? Loved the Artemis Fowl reference with Gnommish and the "lesser minds." What's next, an evil and overly-intelligent pixie? A centaur with a tinfoil hat? Or perhaps Fiona will get a letter from her dead husband's friend Mr. Butler? What was Butler's first name, I can't remember. Was it Donovan? Never mind, I'm getting off track.
Absolutely fantastic chapter. Loved the "Gryffindor house Muggle Studies experiment" How lucky they are, then again, you made it that way. ;)
Author's Response: You definitely make your own luck sometimes! :D I wanted to avoid foul play, lol, so I only used 'Fowl' a few times. Thanks for enjoying the chap, the references, and if Butler shows up, is name won't be Donovan, but his accent will be Russian! LOL
i agrre 100 percent with remus, james and peter that sirius is more mental than he looks. this chapter was hilarious. i have actually memorised the whole gnommish alphabet and it was pretty funny when artemis fowl was mentioned.
Author's Response: I salaam to your feat of memorisation! *salaams* :D I like Sirius quirky, lol, so I hope you do too!
cute chapter! And the experiment worked, yay for appeasing the Weather woman
Author's Response: Thanks! ^_^ Not even mythical women are immune to the charms of Sirius Black, LOL.
Awesome, as ussual. I love this story and it's in my favorites, just so you know. Lol, keep up the fantastic work.
Author's Response: *sniffs happily* Thank you so much for putting the story in your favorites! I heart you for that! ^_^
Hahah, that alst bit reminded me of Muppets Treasure Island. I've got cabin feeever! I've got cabin feeever! xD
Author's Response: LOL !!!! Chapter 21 has a Sirius-the-pirate daydream which would make Jack Sparrow proud, luv. :D
Good chapter! Sirius has gotten daring with his pumpkin. I really liked that he stared at it like Michelangelo before starting. Rosmerta's gotten flat out bold having Sirius with her in public. I was happy to see her get something she wanted for a change, but, thinking 'what if someone finds out?' What WILL they do if someone finds out? I don't expect it soon, but, eventually the other mauraders are going to notice God's gift to women not dating. I don't think the penpal thing will fool any of them. Will they draw straws or confront him all together? :) Ok, don't expect you to answer that. Just needed to throw it out there for my sanity.
Author's Response: He was hooded and masked, so villagers likely thought Rosmerta was keeping company with a married man, lol. In chapter 18, Sirius admits to one of the marauders that his pen friend is more than a friend, if that helps. I need brilliant reviewers sane, just crazy about the story! LOL
I want this chapter to be validated!!! *looks around and grins widely* Hey, I'm first! *throws turnip shaped confetti found in the Ravenclaw common room* Ooh, I can't wait! I love the Artemis Fowl series. Poor Root... stupid council.... I can write Gnommish. *looks around and edges out shiftily*
Author's Response: Yay for turnip shaped confetti! I can write Gnommish if I have the key in front of me, LOL. If I don't, I Love You (or the words made from those words, heh) is my limit. :D
Heh. I like the greek vase.
Author's Response: Bet Peter did too, snicker. Thanks! ^_^
Totally awesome chapter. I liked Sirius' inspired pumpkin carving. I could see it in my mind. I'm really happy that the charm is in full effect now.
Author's Response: Thanks! It was really fun to write. I was trying to give the impression of a duel...which it was, in a way, LOL. ^_^
HA! First to review on a cheap move!Wish the mods would validate this chapter already. I really want to read this chapter. I want some more Rosie/Sirius. Ooh! Is Fiona/Hamish in this chappie too. Maybe a midnight stroll through the village with Padfoot, would lead them interrupting a midnight snog session? ;) lol. My imagination's running away again, maybe I should put it on a leash. :D
Author's Response: Marauder Era mods beat all other cats (that I have fics in, anyway, lol) for speediest updates, so I salaam before them. Never leash your imagination, :D, although what happens might be different. ^_^
I love the love letters, and your admirable command of French.
I just thought--does "Grimmy" bear any relationship at all to Grimm in the comic strip "Mother Goose and Grimm"?
Author's Response: Yes! I loved that comic. Calvin and Hobbes will rule for all time, lol, but I always loved the sound of the name Grimm and Grimmy. :D Thank you!
