Interesting take on the start of 3rd year. Makes you wonder how the rest of that year would have played out with this start. Well done and thanks for sharing!

I am glad he is going to be free. Is there a sequel to this?

Amelia Bones is usually written as a fair minded, wants justice type of character. I can't help but feel it will be harder for Sirius to be cleared with her gone.

Great writing, as usual!

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET I don't have the energy to write long reviews like I did for the Gladiator fics but I CAN say this story is GREAT

Oh and BTW, it's refreshing to read a fic without Dumbledore-bashing or Molly-bashing! This feels like the spirit of the HP books - the later ones, at least.

YeeeeEEET I love this. Well written as always!
| Tiffany Smithi chapter 1 . 1/9

Even if this story is less developed than the UU (of course it is, it's much shorter) it doesn't feel less complete. There's so much to it, but I'll just point out what makes it stand out for me.
We have Remus who doesn't want to defend young!Sirius, not because there's nothing to defend, but because Remus doesn't have the energy to care, to go through that when present!Sirius doesn't deserve it as far as he knows – and Remus would then need to explain he's not defending present!Sirius, etc, so it's really too much and he just can't.
Harry who doesn't like kreacher out of nowhere and after two days because obviously the elf does treat him and Sirius like dirt, so, you know, it's hard to find empathy from that.
Sirius' first assumption, once he's been rescued, is “oh illusions splendid of course you're not my not-friends did you think I'd fall for that?” and even once he starts doubting it he's still cautious just in case they are managing to fool him, his general bitterness at everything.
The fact that the Hunters have none of the true context, so of course they are wrong. They are emotionally compromised and everything tends to what everyone believes. But when Sirius starts telling the truth – not just snapping at them – well. He protected Harry, so that buys him an ear at least, it gives him a chance to convince them.
Harry agrees and understands why he shouldn't tell Ron and Hermione right away (and then he still does it and almost regrets it but thanks for Crookshanks and the fact that Scabbers isn't with Ron). Also, “his friends wouldn't overreact, unlike adults”, *snort* right.
McGonagall as a running-Peter deterrent.
Of course, there's a lot more, but those were the little (or-not-so-little) things that did it for me.

Why were parts in italics if everything is happening in the present?
| Guest chapter 2 . 4/15/2022
Just to let you know you’ve made the entire bottom half bold when I think you only meant to make the writing in the text bold.

The severe changes of bringing Voldemort back this quickly make zero sense. The ritual used in the tournament was far more complex and required for more work then three simple and fairly easily acquired ingredients. Snape literally had to spend a few months preparing the potion in the cauldron.

This was a cool idea and a cool fic, really liked it. Thank you for sharing you work!
