I will answer your question regarding Sirius first.
Should Harry and Sirius' relationship remain platonic or should there be a romantic relationship?
My answer for in the context of this story which is going to follow canon events is it has to remain platonic.
My reasons are thus: Sirius has spent twelve years in a brutal prison that has had untold reprocussions to his memory and mental health status. We already know that at times Sirius does mix up Harry and James as they both are very much alike in looks if not nature. To Sirius, Harry is at some points his Godson who needs guidance and unconditional love and at others times Harry is the reincarnation of his much loved and very lamented dead best friend.
Siruis at this point in his life is barely hanging on to memories and like Harry has barely gotten over his grossly unfair treatment by the Wizarding world as well as Albus Dumbledore. We know that Dumbledore had the political power to ensure a trial for Siruis yet he did nothing simply because he believed him guity.
There is also the unspoken but sinister motive that Dumbledore did not want Siruis to have undue influence on Harry Potter. A more stable and more loved Potter would not be so easy to ensure that he gave up his life for the "Greater Good of the Wizarding World".
Black would also have ensured that Harry would have been more prepared for a battle rather than a "suicide mission" for the good of the whole rather than the needs of the one.
Harry and Sirius deserve better than both trying to find something in the other that is not there.
If Sirius is to live let him find love for himself be it male or female. Let him heal and be the Godfather he is.
Let Harry for once be loved for just being Harry not the Boy Who Lived , not the reincarnation of a dead friend and not poor the downtrodden hero who is a needy wimp.
In saying all of that it behoves me to mention this is your story and you have the right to pen it as you will.
My second point is it would be perhaps better to join chapters two till five together as they are not really separate issues, At the rate this is going you have not yet left the first few pages of Philospher's Stone and you are already in Chapter Five.
The more sucessful of these "reading the books" stories tend to concentrate on key issues and would not have feedback every few sentances from the "audience" such as Black etc ... Otherwise the story becomes very tedious for the reader and a mammoth task for the author with very little feedback from the reader reviews as mostly over half the story is in the word of Ms Rowling with a few charactor comments in between.
That all being said I am certain that your style of writing and the promise shown by yourself is easlity able to carry the story to a conclusion. Your writing and plot shows great promise a goodly amount of angst and comedy and it would be a shame to let it all down by simply quoting huge chunks of the books with the occasional character comment.
Once again it behoves me to state that this is your story and you must pen it as you see fit.
I will of course be putting this story on alert to see where the journey goes.

This story is so good! I really like how you're writing Dumbledore, and I'm so glad he finally called Harry by his first name. Please update soon! Oh, and please, please, please keep Sirius and Harry's relationship platonic, I don't have anything against slash but Sirius is so much a father/brother figure in the books it would just feel so wrong to me.
| Guest 7/23/12 . chapter 5
Really liking it so far but I would keep it platonic between Harry and Sirius.
| Guest 7/23/12 . chapter 5
I'm liking the take on things from Albus's perspective.
It's certainly a different way to look at the Harry Potter story and I hope to be reading more of this very soon.
And in regards to Harry and Sirius I would make their relationship Platonic but make them the closest of friends.
| rozalla 7/23/12 . chapter 5
I would love to read about romantic relationship between Sirius and Harry, but if you prefer writing platonic relationship, write it how you want it to be ;)

Thank you for putting it up so quickly, I'm really glad I got to read this before my holiday :) And I absolutely loved the way you included Dean. And you had Hermione inform him, yay ;) Once again, loved it :)
| Harriet Telcontar Holmes 7/8/12 . chapter 3
I am so looking forward to the next chapter. I hope you're really going to focus on Dumbledore and Harry. Just one question; Why didn't you include Dean Thomas? I know it's not important, but I'm a very curious person ;)
| Element's Sole Protector 6/26/12 . chapter 1
Go for it! I'm a sucker for such stories, and I know I'd really enjoy it.
Make it awesome, though-Albus wouldn't accept anything less. XD
