Chapter: Un: Summer of 1952

Oh, Bine, I am so happy that I got to review this story. It was lovely, truly, and I have never read anything like it.

I loved how you divided this story into sections. And the section showed not only Walburga and Orion but the entire Black family, almost. I loved reading such a well-rounded story on such an interesting family. And I'm so happy I got to read this story because I never got the chance to read a story about the Black family before. I always thought that they would be confusing and boring, but this was quite the opposite! I thought the characters were very in character, and I thought that it was so interesting to hear about Sirius's mother and father. I just loved this story!!


Author's Response: Thank you! I myself love the Black family, always have and always will. Like J.K. herself said, "there are many stories between the lines." I personally think that even though Sirius describes his parents as cold, I doubt they would always have been like that. With "nobility" comes pressure to do well, and I believe none of the Blacks were excempt from that. And if you like to read more about the Black family, I may suggest you check out my "Shining Through Blackness", as it deals with Isla Black, the first known member of the Black family to having been blasted off the family tree that J.K. made available to us fans.

Chapter: Un: Summer of 1952

nice story. i think you should continue chapters, definitely =) one tiny glitch i found in your story was the word "matriarch" to refer to Orion's father. i think it should be patriarch instead. anyhow good job =)

Author's Response: Oh oops. Haha. Thanks for pointing that mistake out!

Thanks for the review. I'll try to continue with more chapters.
