I’ll admit that was unexpected. Actually when I started reading this I wasn’t even sure if the main character was Sirius or Severus. Of course, that part became clear when he was upset by the death of James. I’m not sure Severus wouldn’t have smirked, assuming even he could smirk so soon after Lily’s death.
Anyway, moving on. When the child showed up I naturally thought it was Harry. I was all prepared to go into former!mod mode and talk about how Harry was an infant in a crib. He wasn’t walking or talking. But then it wasn’t Harry. It was a girl. New siblings often pop up in fan fiction. Severus has had a sister. I love giving Lucius a sister, myself. Once I even read about a fourth Black sister, but I can’t imagine that one. With the ability those three have to get themselves is awful situations a new addition seems entirely unnecessary. But I’ve never thought about there being another Potter out there, well at least not from that generation. Maybe a sister for James.
I like this idea, and I like that Sirius took her away from everything, erasing her memories and giving her a chance to grow-up without the insanity. However, I don’t understand why he’d do this for a sibling, but not Harry. I also don’t understand why Dumbledore never tried to track down this child. Actually, maybe I do. Harry was the Chosen One, not her.
This is a very intriguing start to your fic. I think it has great potential. I look forward to reading more. Good job.
Not sure what I think of this yet. Will keep reading though.
Author's Response: Well, then, I hope by reading further you begin to like it!
Hey tell me which line did you misread???? I'll misread all the HP books for an idea like that....!!!!
Anyhow..... please give us the next chapter..... I can't wait for when Harry and Hannah meet.....!!!! :D
PS: What's with the name Hannah?????
Author's Response: I'm really glad you liked it. There was a line in one of the books, I forget which, where either Dumbledore or McGonagall say something about Aunt Petunia, but they refer to her as "Lily's sister". As for Hannah's name, I didn't pick it because it matched Harry. In fact, I didn't realize that till I went back and read my own work. I picked it because I thought the name "Hannah Black" had a nice ring to it. And, FYI, I just submitted the 3rd chapter. If I don't have any major errors, it should be up in a few days. Happy reading :)
