Oh... you HAD to make me cry! These types of stories aren't good for me,you know, they get me all teary and then...
It's so well written, and the fact that it's abotu Sirius (the BEST of all the characters in Harry Potter- my opinion, sorry) makes it better. Awesome work! I LOVE IT!

Ohh, I liked it. Very dark, very bitter, very angsty... just the right way to write the older Sirius. I liked the way you left it as well - a lot of people are scared to finish on such a depressing note, but it can be really, really effective when you do. The grammar wasn't perfect in places, though it was pretty much spot-on most of the time, and the content made up for it. I've never looked on the 'Snape incident' when they were at school like that: I'd always just imagined Sirius meant it as a joke, but you actually made it believable that he might have meant for Snape to die. Only one thing, and this is something I'm always a stickler for, but in Britain we tend not to use the term 'graduation' when leaving high school. It's not really that important though, and apart from that I loved it.

Okay . . . so much to say about this! This is probably the best capture of Sirius that I've ever read. You've really grasped what I think is the key. Sirius never really got a chance to grow up. He thinks he did, but he didn't. He still has the arrogance and petulance of a slighted child, even though, in OotP, he's . . . what? Approaching 40?
"the one who could probably aid them the most, who was probably one of the most skilled among their number." This capture so incredibly well the Sirius arrogance that still exists. He's sulking because he's not allowed to join in the fun.
"the only time in his life when he’d felt truly alive." And it's phrases like this that make the piece. There's depth here, and your Sirius is so real. I applaud you for that. And the last line . . . the last sequence, really, is magnificently perfect. You've got Sirius slowly, slowly growing up and realizing (or maybe just finally admitting) that his frustration isn't really with everyone else; it's with himself.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable read! I thank you!

Wow. This was amazing - at the beginning I could really FEEL his frustration. Then when he opened the trunk and began to remember, it was sad but not angsty, which I liked... sad, because I KNEW it was just a memory, but happy because Sirius was almost there again, in his mind, remembering better times. I'm rambling, aren't I? lol! But I just really liked it. And I liked how the ending brought it back to a full cycle; no matter how hard he tries, he's still 'stuck' :(
"...he, the one who could probably aid them the most, who was probably one of the most skilled among their number, was ordered to sit back and watch everything pass him by" - This line just depressed me! It's so true! Argh. The Order should have let him go out under Polyjuice or an Invisibility Cloak or something.
Anyway, I loved it! Going straight to my favourites :D

Good story! Sirius's character is written really well, this is probably pretty much whatr he would be thinking all that time in Grimmauld place.
The ending is great too. one thing I would say about this is that sometimes the paragraphs seem a bit long, making it a little hard to read, but other wise this is lovely and very well written.

Quite possibly my favorite out of everything you've got up here. It's really sad, but then again, I think that's one of the things that makes it such a good read. So as you sit here listening to Michel Legrand, I have to commend you on your writing ability, and have decided that it's time to admit we're related.
