Chapter: Sirius Is Coming

That was brilliant.

I loved the first part. It just sucked you in. You could see how innocent Sirius was; he feels like a real eight-year-old. In so many fics, Sirius seems to made up his mind about hating pure-blood ideals at the age of six. It's nice to see that he has some doubt about it, but isn't quite sure what to think. He seemed to look up to his mother a lot in the first part. I loved that. It makes sense that he would look up to her a lot.

The Muggles go against Siriusís family. This is why they should not live.

Sirius does not understand this.


I loved that line. It's so simple, yet perfect. It sounds like something an eight-year-old would say.

The second part was so sweet and heart-warming. It really showed how close the Marauders were. It was great to Sirius so genuinely happy. The bonds of friendship you showed here really helped make Peter's betrayal at the end seem much sadder.

With the third part, you knew everything was going to get much darker. It was such a contrast from the second part, which made it all more shocking. I loved the sad, depressed side of Sirius you showed here. He was like that a lot during OotP especially, so I can see him being like that in his youth. The only thing is that during Lily and James's wedding, he was supposed to be happy. He was smiling in the picture Harry saw. But apart from that, it worked out well.

The last part was so sad. I cried when I was reading it. Sirius felt really realistic here; he didn't seem false. His sadness was real, and you could relate to him. I loved the effect Peter's betrayal had on him. Could the boy who had laughed at the fate of those men be the same person he had faced in those last moments on the street, the man who had hissed that the downfall of Voldemort didnít mean a thing? This summoned up how Sirius felt really well. It reflects his opinion of Peter in POA, and it fits with his anger at Peter then.

I loved how you used the metaphor of a star's life for Sirius. Sirius is the name of a star, and his life seems to fit perfectly there. The darkness here was also great; parts of it sent chills down my spine.

Overall, this was a really amazing fic. I can't believe more people haven't reviewed it.

Author's Response: Wow! Thank you for such a great review. I didn't expect that at all. I have to admit that the first part is my favorite; it was the spontaneous part that I started with, and I actually think it's much better than the rest. I did try to show that confusion and uncertainty, and I'm glad it got through. And I'd agree with you about those fics where he hates his parent's ideals from the start; it doesn't make sense at all. After all, heís a child, not some miniature teenager. The third part was supposed to be dark and sad, so I'm glad that worked out. About Lily and James's weddingóI'd imagine that there were a few months between the time that they announced their engagement and when they got married, and I'm quite certain that between the fact that he would have had time to think about James getting married (and realize that it was a good thing, even if they were very young) and the fact that it would have been a wedding (I'd imagine all the happiness and enthusiasm would be catching) he'd have ended up being very happy at the actual wedding, even if he was rather depressed when they first got engaged. As for the fourth part, you actually cried? That makes me really, really happy. Thank you! (Itís a wonderful compliment.) Iím glad it made sense and didnít seem over the topóI was really worried it would be. Thanks again for the lovely review! I really, really appreciate it. Tree
