THat had been really good. I've been reading it for four days, & I have to say, never read any fiction about the Marauders' lives more accurate than that to the information the books gave us. I always got annoyed at other fics, like when they shunt Remus from the begining, or make Peter seem not at all Marauderish, I mean, They wouldn't have kept him around unless he had something in him, & he definitly did. He had the courage to turn on them, & the brain to work a scheme on Sirius. maybe not the best in those two fields, but he still had something. & I loved how you made it all very realistic, how they grew distant, & the perfect reason as to why Sirius thought Remus was the spy, & trusted Peter with his best friend's family's life, & also how he grieved for his brother, because the lack of emotion which he showed in OotP when he told Harry about Regulus could have been a good mask to something powerful behind it. He is a Balck after all, & I always thought he was more than cabable at hiding certain emotions.
All in all, this was great. the best I read about their life (& I read quiet a respectful number, or at least tried & got bored halfway)..
Ooh, I loved it! It's really funny, & totally original! Hilarious!
I loved the chapter. But honestly, I almost forgot everything about th story. Though, reading through I remembered, & I had a memorable session where I forced one of my best friends to sit & listen to me try to tell her the whole story without spoiling too much. I really wanna know what's happening with Fred & George. God, you & Jo are of the same mind, being so mean to them! Lol. It's completely tragic.
Can't wait for the reunion. & I love the way you portray Sirius. He's completely my favourite character!
Author's Response: Dude, I suck sometimes when I go through a dry spell of no writing. Apologies for leaving things hanging so long.
Oooo! I love this story! I've never been a big fan of AU, not because I don't fancy the concept, it's just that most authors don't muster what it takes to write a good one, & I'm a picky reader, but still I loved this one! It's great! I love it! & I have absolutely no idea how I'm going to wait for the next chapter after reading 19 continuously!
I'm a huge Sirius fan, &, though I admit I sort of hate it when he's described with dark brown hair & brown eyes (There are people who support a jet-black set of locks on their heads, really. & my father has greenish gray eyes.) I always had a rush when you mention him in the story. His personality is described as good as I, & I believe anyone, would wish for.
I almost wanted to kill the old owl because he locked him up!
Anyway, I can't wait to see how Harry would accept the drastic change in his life if he "dies" from the plague & joins the rebelion, & how his friends would take it (Especially Draco).
Please update pronto!
Author's Response: Welcome to AU then! I\'m gald you buy and enjoy my take on Sirius, and I hope you keep enjoying the story :D Thanks for the review!
Oooh! I'm so glad you updated!
Haha, I have to say, this Isobel has quite a character!
Anyway, I really loved the chapter!
Don't worry too much about it all taking too long to update. One might forget a bit about the story, but while reading the new chapters, I remember tiny details! Your story is really unique & original, no one can mix it with any other thing.
Aaaw.. I loved it! I never thought of Regulus as the guy who considered Sirius some sort of a role-model, even though I believed he is indeed RAB. I believe he loved Sirius, & that Sirius had loved him back too. But I never looked deeply into it.. Superb!
And no, contrary to beliefs very likely impressed upon you by this summary, I'm not a gormless prat.
Well... not entirely.
Omg! I loved your fanfiction. I wish I had been with it since the begining, but, well, I only found about it's existance when it won that Quicksilver Quill award. Congratulations, you really earned it.
there are loads of things I liked about your story. How it wasn't boringly long (god, some fanfictions just start spiffingly & then just get so. bloody. sleep-inducing.
It was very entertaining. I always like to read stories from the point of view of a complete nutter who's in love with Sirius Black, my object of my current obsession. & I loved every character you wrote about, how realistic they seemed & how close they were to how I really imagine them. I like a lot of, say, Siriuses(!!) in FF, & I always tell that to the author, but yours is just what imagine him! Everyone was amazing, Lily, Remus, Peter, James, Reglus. & Snape. Even though we now know more about him that we used to, the new information hadn'[t affected your story. Lily would have gone completely berserk at what he'd done to Sirius (WHAT WAS THAT FOR! You nearly gave me a heart-attack when I read that part, & how Tia was so slowly describing him as a lifeless heap on the ground!) As she'd severed ties with him in 5th year.
Anyway, wonderful story. I'm com;letely in love with it, & it's totally a favourite!
Aaaaw.. It was really good, & very heart-wrenching.. I'm goign to check your other story, by the way.
*Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Romance- Canon.*
Oooh! .I loved it.. I'm actually a Sirius fan, & I read Dog's Life. That;s what made me want to reaqd the story. I love stories that have Sirius in it, but not as the main charactar, because that doesn't compelle the author to twist his personality the least.
I'm a dog lover too! I've been so since I was a child. & I hate cats. I think Newfoundlands are a bit too cute for for Sirius. I think of him as a mongrel too. A Newfoundland might look like a bear in his built, but his face is kind. I think that Snuffles would have a mischeivous, aristocratic face.
I'm a R/T supporter, anyway. & I loved the story. Tonks had always been one of my favourite characters.
Author's Response: Happy New Year! I\'m so thrilled you read the story and like Sirius! I think you\'d like my Marauder Era Sirius story Semi Charmed Life- same personality, different dimension of the Potterverse- but even if you don\'t, thanks for liking him in this one! ^_^
Ooo! I love it! I wish you'd update! I can't wait to see how Sirius would act in such a sticky situation! Should be reeeaaaallllyyy fun! Haha! Poor bloke, probably gonna squirm - much to James' Delight - all night long! LOL!
Anyway, I love your story. I've really been just looking for some Sirius, light reading (No pun intended, I swear!) & I'm glad I found this, it's wonderful. Please update!
Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.
Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, are proud to present a Symphony for Quartet.
Wow. This chapters is great! & Has a lot of Sirius-ness in it! I loved it.
You know, updating a story each month isn't that bad for your readers. There are loads of authors who update only once a month & their stories aren't very impressive. Yours thoguh have every right to take a full month for a chapter to be written.
Great chapter! I'm sorry I didn't review sooner, but I was on vacation out of town, & the net was so slow, it was infuriating to open a webpage. So I only managed to get as far as opening the link in my email to the story (I can't ignore fanfiction alerts. =D), & I had to switch off the net while reading. And, well, I didn't happen to stop by after that.
Anyway, the chapter was great. I can't wait for mroe updates!
Outrageously impressive! Loved it, can't wait for the next chapter!
*Sequel to Once in a Blue Moon*
Aaaaw! I loved it! & I particulary loved the scenes with Sirius in them. :D.. I can't say all I want about this, because I have to go & study for my Geography test *gags*. But It was wonderful. I'm going to stop reading at this point, at least 'till I finish my exams. Your stories are addictive! Way to go!
Author's Response: I\'ve got to find a way to lure you over to the General/Marauder Era cat to read my Sirius romance Semi Charmed Life! It\'s a different dimension of the Potterverse, but Sirius is the same! ^_~
o m g.. I've never had read any fanfiction that touched me so much! maybe Between Npow & Then, but this is just really well-written. You had made out Sirius's thoughts in a very plausible way, & did not make hiom jump into new emotions & stuff, & did not, for example, make him hate his family since ever, or hate his brother.. Oh, god.. I love how you had worked this.. It's really really really good, & I love it. I can't wait to read the next chapter!
Author's Response: Hiya! Thank you so much! The reason I started writing this story is because I couldn\'t find a Sirius story that I found believeable...so I\'m thrilled that you feel the way you do! Chapter 9 is probably 90% complete so keep posted! Thanks again for reading!!! =D
Omg. I have never read a better story about a young Sirius. I have read great stories about the young marauders, but since Sirius is my favourite onem, I appreciate this one above all. This chapter had been wonderful. I feel really sorry for Regulus. & Sirius must be feelign really down. Can't wait 'till next chapter's out!
After 'Snuffles' is revealed to be a fugitive Animagus, Sirius must convince the woman he loves to make him her most wanted.
Outtake to chapter 11 of A Wolf in the Moonlight
Aaaaaaaaaaaw! I loved it! I'm such a pathetic romantic sap! but I don't give a damn! I really really loved it!
Author's Response: You are a romantic soul who has the right priorities in life! ^_^ Thank you!
Oh, wow! I loved the chapter. Amazing.
I loved the Harry/Hermione confrontaion. How you had described the DoM. Very exciting & hooking. How it all ended up. How Harry felt pain & regret, & how he missed the Hogrwarts days. & how he finally gave in to lust.
I liked how you ended the chapter, BTW. can't wait for the next one!
Wow. THe Chapter was amazing.. I loved it. & That was a really nasty cliffhanger! Maybe I should hate you for it... :D
Anyway, I love the tense interaction between Daphne & Harry. It's so mysterious & adds an unusual touch of romance into the story. Though, I'm not sure I should call it romance. Lust would do better, maybe.
Martin is really a nasty piece of work. He & Umbridge should get together. But killing him was a dramatic act, don't you think? Harry now knows how dangerous his power is, & how difficult it is to control it, mroe than he ever did, I think.
Oh, & I'm soooooooo happy Harry had slept! That's a great improvement. Though I can't see Harry letting that happen again. Daphne singing him to sleep everynight? Unless they get closer to each other, I don't think Harry would get over his pride & let that happen.
I wonder if he would blow his cover in his anger. To Hermione about his secret mission, or maybe about how he knew everyone is conspiring behind his back. I don't know i I want him to or not. All this secret-keeping attitude he has must have made him really frustrated (Never mind the fact that it made me frustrated too, I want to see him telling someone!) & he's bound to let it out sometime. But that would be baaaaaaaad for his quest's sake..
I can't wait for the next chapter. I wonder how he would confront her. Or would he at all?
Oh, wow. This answers a hell load of questions. Amazing chapter. Can't wait for the next.
I hope we find out soon what Daphne's got to do with all of it, & what does Lily finding the queen's maid's sword & James finding the wizard's -Whom her & her army's spirits killed means.
can't wait for next chapter!
