Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you like it!
I loved this chapter!!! Sirius' speech was awesome!
Author's Response: That speech took me a while, so I felt Sirius's pain! Glad you liked it! Thanks for reading!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Excellent chapter, But it would have been nice if Sirius had actually listened to his brother...Cannot wait for the next update :-)
Author's Response: Well, if Sirius had listened we wouldn't have Harry Potter... :) Thanks for reading!
Even though I know what happened to Regulus and all that, I still can't help but wish that he could have lived, at least for the chance to life the life he had tried to redeem. I also like the fact that Orion Black actually sought out Sirius, but secretly, I think he didn't just want to ask about Regulus...if Sirius had let him finish, perhaps Orion may have extended an olive branch to their Black sheep (horrid pun, lol).
Cheers for yet another excellent installment, and as usual, looking forward to the next.
Author's Response: I wish he'd gotten that chance too, but Regulus had to pay the ultimate price for righting what he did wrong. Orion's main priority was Sirius, but if their conversation had gotten any further there may have been discussion over Sirius's running away. Thanks for reading!
I always wondered how Sirius reacted to Regulus' death and the way you wrote it, i think was how Im always going to think of it now. It was perfectly characterized, for everyone, I liked how you brought in Sirius' dad too, it made it more emotional I think. Anyways, as always great job!!
Author's Response: I wondered too and that was the first reaction I could think of - he was furious, but upset as well. Sirius speaks so callously of his family in OOTP, but I think he had hope for Regulus. I really wanted to see how Sirius would react to his dad so I brought him in for this (and I missed writing him!) Thanks for reading!
Can't blame Sirius for his attitude or for the way he dealt with his brother and father. It's sad, but unfortunately the world seems to work that way more than not. Sirius will never forgive himself for not listening to Regulas. And if he had Dumbledore would have known about the Horcruxes and maybe found a way to get rid of Voldy before he killed James and Lily and Harry would have had a very different life. As previously stated, life just doesn't work that way either in fiction or real world.
Author's Response: Now that you point all those things out, if in canon Regulus had gone to see Sirius, and Sirius listened to him, so many things would have been different. But no one can ever predict anything being the cause of so many things. And Sirius acts on his emotions and his first ones were to be mad. Thanks for reading!
Poor Regulus, AND poor Sirius, nice job on the chapter, as always =)
Author's Response: I know :( so sad for the both of them. Thanks for reading!
Wow, that went really well, Petunia and Vernon are def. not my favorite characters! Great chapter though.
Author's Response: Yeah, they're not my favorites either. They need attitude adjustments. Thanks for reading!
i can't even begin to tell you how much i love this story! you've got all the character's personalities spot on!
Author's Response: Thanks, glad you like it!!
Yea for James and Lily. Petunia and Vernon could do with numerous lessons on manners, curtesy and family.
Author's Response: They really could. The older Dudley would be able to teach them that, sadly enough. Thanks for reading!
Aww:) I thought it was cute:D Even though Vernon and Petunia just need to get some sort of help;) I loved how the chapter helped lift moral from the last one, great job!!
Author's Response: Vernon and Petunia really do need help, unfortunately they'll never get it so they get to stay the grumpy people they are! It was a bit of a morale booster, I think they all needed it. But the morale gets sucked back down soon enough... Thanks for reading!
What an awkward exchange between our happy couple and the Dursleys. We always knew they were horrid people, but acting like that is simply the limit.
Well written, looking forward to the next chapter, as always.
Author's Response: Yeah it was pretty awkward, but it had to be done. Lily just wouldn't be Lily if she didn't go ask (or yell, really) Petunia to come to the wedding. They are horrible, I agree. Thanks for reading!
Not a happy chapter. :( I feel so bad for the McKinnon's and Benjy. I can't wait for the next update!
Author's Response: I know, this was a really sad chapter :( There's more sad ones coming, unfortunately, but there's some happy ones! Thanks for reading!
Oh wow, that was a really..tragic chapter:( Thats so sad, all those kids. I guess one good thing came out of it though, James got the courage to propose:) Anyways, loved the update!
Author's Response: Yeah the good thing that came out of it was James's proposal. The turmoil for the Order's only going to increase, but there's some lighthearted moments too! Thanks for reading!
Wow, Excellent chapter! Very sad but exciting at the same time :-) I am so happy when I get a new update emailed to me...Cannot wait for the next one!
Author's Response: It was sad, I feel bad for the Order right now. But the next chapter is a pretty happy one. I'll try and have it up next week. Thanks for reading!
nicely written chapter, especially the fight scene. and yay! james finally proposed! its interesting to see the change coming out more and more in peter
Author's Response: The fight scene was hard to write, I wanted it to cover all the Marauders, but still keep the action going. Yep, James popped the question! The change will keep coming in Peter until he finally turns completely. Thanks for reading!
How sweet and delightfully misguided of James to propose during a firefight!
The latest installment, as ever, of top quality and I look forward to 79. See you on Privet Drive!
Author's Response: That's James for you! It's probably one of my favorite things he's done. He's very clueless at the beginning of the next chapter. Ha the Privet Drive scene was a lot of fun to write, hopefully you'll like it! Thanks for reading!
Death to the Death Eaters! What were they doing elsewhere that they didn't want the Order to interfere with? And another Order member dead. This isn't looking good for the good guys. And I bet Lily says yes.
Author's Response: Evil Death Eaters! It really isn't looking good for the Order, but as Remus said in OOTP they were outnumbered and didn't know what to expect. Thanks for reading!
Nice chapter - good old James saving Remus from the unfair Death Eaters and cowardly, cowardly Peter who sinks further and further. Excellent chapter and I look forward to more.
Author's Response: James would never let Remus fight in an unfair fight and Peter is definitely a coward. What I'm working on now is something that drags him closer to his Death Eater self. Thanks for reading!
