Great chapter! It's good to see Sirius alive, though I feel pretty sorry for Samantha. Suddenly, her boyfriend's far too young for her! I hope Pomfrey figures out a way to restore Sirius to his proper age. This has been a great story.
Author's Response: I'm just a little confused by this review; I meant for everyone to understand that Sirius was being put into the big jar of time mentioned in book 5, which would return him to his proper age. I'm sorry I wasn't clear enough for that, but he's going to get better. Thanks for reviewing!
go Ginny!!! I love her! Great job so far!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you like my portrayals of the main characters. I try really hard to make them believable.
"And he had learned from the past; students were very carefully monitored around the Hippogriffs and Thestrals, lest some inattentive student cost the animals their lives."
I have to say that I like the way you phrased this. It is something that i believe Hagrid would think. Grreat!
Author's Response: Thanks!
I'm reviewing this chapter out of order. I like how you don't tell us what Harry's job is and then you just figure it out. I had to stop reading and laugh for a while. Good JoB!
Author's Response: Thanks for going back and saying so! I really had fun writing Harry as the Knight bus driver. I think he'd have fun doing it.
Just found this story and i'm right happy about it! This story makes me laugh and think all at the same time. I wonder when Ron will put in an apperance. Lots more chapters to go!
Author's Response: I hope you read the prequel before you get too far. Some things won't make sense otherwise! I'm really glad you like the story!
Very clever. I knew what would happen when I first read the chapter name but I like it all the better. Its very good. As for your little joke . . . it was pretty funny. Any way I like it after all you couldn't let Sirius still be a baby not after Samantha. And Ginny's reaction was perfect as usual. You write Gin very well in my opinion. As for killing characters what about Frank? You killed him, but Franks death just made him more of a hero. You may not like killing characters but the characters that do end up dieing anyway you choose them well. I have confidence in your a bilities . . . but you gotta tell us when you get a book published!
Author's Response: Thanks for your confidence! I gaurentee that when I finally publish a book, I will let the fanfic crowd know about it. I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter and the joke!
You are mean as they come! First, you make it look like Sirius is dead, and then you start the next chapter with a funeral! That's very cruel.
But the chappie was quite good. Complicated, but very good. Please update soon.
Author's Response: yeah, everyone was so insistant that I would never kill Sirius and that he was sure to be reborn like a phoenix that I couldn't help having a little fun at everyone's expense. At least everyone has the satisfaction of being right.
Author's Response: And even though this is from a different chapter, I feel like I've answered this one too. =)
Author's Response: I already answered this one. =)
Author's Response: It's okay, it turns out alright in the end.
That is soooo sad I can't believe Sirius had to die! :( but at least Malfoy is dead :)
Author's Response: I agree with your sentiment at Malfoy being dead, but Sirius didn't have to STAY dead, right?
this is a really great story
but i have just one thing to point out to readers reading this review
doesnt this remind u of a similar chapter in minds eye where we all thought harry was dead
it may not be what really happens but i say what u could do with this is make it so that the pheniox in sirius dies leaving sirius badly injured but alive none the less
Author's Response: I think the truth has been posted for a while. I don't like killing main characters (and I hope J. K. Rowling feels the same way in book seven!) so I think everyone knew Sirius would live somehow. This was actually one of the ways I had thought about ending the story, so very good thinking!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN?!?!?!
Author's Response: I thought I was pretty nice with this one... well maybe not. Sorry you have to wait between chapters!
Wow! What a chapter! The perfect climax to this story! Can't wait to see what you do with Sirius in the next chapter...
Author's Response: I guess by now you've read the next chapter... I'm glad this made for a satisfying climax to the story!
Author's Response: Me too! (I've waited so long to respond that I'm not sure what we're talking about here. Sorry!)
Oh my God! THis is sooooooo good!!! I need that next chap to be updated!!!! Ahhh!
Author's Response: I want it updated too; I have the whole story finished, but I can't post the next chapter until this one gets done... oh well, hopefully it will be soon.
OMG, what a good story. does Sirius die?
Author's Response: I can't answer that... well I CAN but I won't. =) The next chapter is submitted, and it will answer your question.
Great Story. Can't wait for the next chapter
Author's Response: Thanks; hopefully it won't be long!
sob. . .
Author's Response: There there. It'll be okay... somehow.
Author's Response: What do you say to "sob"? I'm sorry? "I'm glad I got an emotional response" is the best I can do, I think. =)
