Chapter: A Very Sirius Christmas

Firstly, I would like to comment that the title was extremely creative- the way you made use of a character’s name to give the meaning of another word.

Also, I absolutely adore the interaction between Sirius and Lily. It is particularly satisfying (at least for me) whenever I see any well-written interaction between both of them besides the usual Severus/Lily or James/Lily.

“Lily, he isn’t even one. He doesn’t know what he likes. He doesn’t even know what I’m saying,” Sirius complains. “This story is lame! My godson deserves a story with adventure, thrill and motorbikes”

It is actually rather funny- according to the way Sirius speaks in this story. And of course, I really enjoy seeing the overprotective and maternal side of Lily Potter.

Frankly, this is a very well-written story that sort of contrasts the Christmas mood with Lily’s fears of the Death Eaters showing up. I think you really portrayed that part well without overdoing it.

So, keep on writing! There are readers out there that await for more of such stories

Author's Response: Thanks, I love writing for Sirius and Remus especially. I really wanted to have a story they were all there and happy with Harry. My other entry to the contest ties into to this story. It takes place Christmas Harry's third year and is from Remus' point of view. I am glad you enjoyed it. I really had fun writing it. I actually came up with the title before I even wrote the story, I just knew Sirius was going to be one of the focuses. Keep an eye out because I'm working on a chaptered Marauder fic and a one-shot of letters between Sirius and Remus.

Chapter: A Very Sirius Christmas

Amazing, and very cute. I enjoyed every minute of it!

But..

I think there might have been a timeline thing. James and Lily were killed on October 31st, 1981. If I remember right they went into hiding the beginning of October 1981, which means they can't have heard about the prophecy or anything yet on in December 1980. (The year your story takes place). Correct me if I'm wrong! :)

Other than that, I loved it alot! I love Sirius so much!

Author's Response: they didn't go under the protection of the fidelius charm until October 1981. It can be debated whether they were just lying low before that. We don't actually know when Snape told Dumbledore that the Potters we being targeted specifically though. I've always assumed that Dumbledore figured out it was going to be the Longbottom's or the Potter's before Snape told him who the target was. Dumbledore knew both families and knew they each defied Voldemort 3 times and they were expecting a baby at the end of July. Thanks for the review! Glad you liked it!

Very good! Warms the heart! Happiness with just the right amount of "seriousness". (^>^)

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. I honestly thought of the title before the plot, it wasn't even meant to tie in any further than the fact Sirius was the protagonist. Funny how those things turn out...
