Oh my god, this gave me chills. It was amazing and very, very sad. To think you'd be a poet, too! But I knew that, I suppose. This is one of my favorite poems of yours.
Author's Response: I'm not a real poet, I have to be inspired, I can't just sit down and write the way I can with stories, but I appreciate you saying that so much!
Thank you for providing me with hours of reading excellent stories. You are talented and I can see you going far.
Author's Response: Thank you for saying that! I wrote an original novel for NaNoWriMo in Novembe (the first draft, anyway) and then realized a few weeks ago that--worse than not telling the story "right"--I've lost the spark that made me want to tell it in the first place. I'm putting it away for awhile and working on a screenplay, so thank you for the encouragement!
wow you have a way with words
Author's Response: Thank you! It was easy to imagine how she must be feeling, poor love!
This is an amzing poem.How ironic, that the one poem i don't read that you wrote is the best one. I am trying really hard not to cry right now because i'm afraid my brother will think i'm crazy (he's not that fond of the Harry Potter world) but this story truly touched me.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for saying that. Hopeless romantic that I am, I cried buckets writing it, thinking of how Cami felt, so I appreciate that you had to try not to cry too! *hugs*
You've outdone your self again Kerichi....you conveyed fathomless emotions with so few words. I felt Cami's pain as if it were my own. It was just hauntingly beautiful and I think I am going to remember this one for a very long time.
Author's Response: Thank you! She's going to be in denial for a long time before she faces the sad truth.(unless Jo brings Sirius back in book 7, and then her faith will be rewarded!)
who the heck is cami?
Author's Response: My fan fiction writing philosophy is if Harry doesn't know about something (like Tonks falling for Remus, not Sirius) it can still happen, so I gave Sirius a love interest in my R/T series. If you don't have time to read an entire series, ;), you could always read A Dog's Life the first Cami/Sirius one shot and see if you'd like to read more. Here's a quote that answers your question!
Camillia Llewellyn was his cousin’s mate from the Blue Moon. Tonks lived in a flat above the agency run by her Uncle Morty, and had introduced him, in a matter of speaking, to her friend after taking ‘Snuffles’ on a run one morning.
He’d liked Cami right off. She’d immediately knelt down to pet him in ways that demonstrated she had the right kind of experience with dogs. She’d also noticed he was part Newfoundland, and had ‘amazing definition’, showing her intelligence and good taste. When he’d sneakily licked her lips and she’d laughed instead of going ‘Eeuwww’ along with Tonks, Sirius had felt his heart leap.
ok, you made me cry yet again! poor Cami! great poems though, sad, but great!!
Author's Response: Thank you! I thought of it like a refrain, said over and over while she listed all the reasons why he had to return.
I felt her pain, those were some really great poems.
Author's Response: They say one of the stages of grief is denial, and I think Cami's in that right now. Heck, I'm still hoping Jo will let him come back! Thank you for feeling the pain along with her. :)
Awww poor Cami... And she really can't get much comfort, can she? I mean, she has only a couple friends who know about him, but everyone else still thinks he was guilty...
Author's Response: Cami wasn't really on friendly terms, more nodding acquaintances with Order members. Only Remus and Tonks truly understand her feelings. It is sad. Reminds me of Shakespeare. Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o'er fraught heart and bids it break.
So sad, I loved the format of the poem, and the super-short lines. It was a great style. Excellent job. ^^
Author's Response: When it comes to free verse, I like to break it up, shape the words into whatever pattern seems to fit, so thank you for liking it!
aaaaaawwwwww thats soooooo sad :'(
Author's Response: Thanks, it was tragic and I know I'll get teary when I see it happen again in the film. Sirius finally had something to live for, and didn't get to. Sigh.
this is a really touching poem, i really like it
Author's Response: Thank you! I was so sad after writing the Sirius-through-the-veil chapter, it seemed to pour out.
