I love Sirius.
OhtarIstar666 chapter 1 . 8/7/2009
I love fics about Sirius running away from home. This one was one of the best I've read.
Meme0 chapter 1 . 1/29/2009
I loved it. You had his character nailed down. His passion, anger, frustration and heartbreak, everything that made him & everything that he has always kept pent up under the surface until it blew up.
RebeccaRoy chapter 1 . 4/5/2008
That was cool.
Cassandra's Cross chapter 1 . 2/11/2008
This is incredibly good. It feels like the even darker version of Harry's life. I never really thought about the fact that Sirius's home life must have been absolutely horrible and insane, but this really shows it in a very emotive way. I found myself utterly caught up in it. You've indicated that this is the first in a series, but it looks as though you haven't updated in awhile. Do you plan to? I'd really like to read more.
Frayed Misfit chapter 1 . 10/9/2007
Brilliant! I've read many stories about Sirius' 'escape' yet this seemed the most in-character and realistic. The stream-of-consciousness used was just brilliant, the way in which his thoughts are portrayed as unlinked and jumbled, just like his state of mind.

Also the portrayal of Remus was hilarious yet also correct: "And suddenly he doesn’t want to go to Remus’ house. Remus overanalyses everything, he has a bloody dictionary shoved up his arse and he’s anal retentive because of it." wonderful!

And the way that we can see James changing, I can't wait for more of that as well.

Overall, Cuba this was a wonderfully written chapter, and Paddy I can't wait to see you write too (say no to the writer's block!)

c.sheep chapter 1 . 10/9/2007
A friend and I both read this during homeroom and we are in agreement that it's superb. During the piece I was dazed by the effect of the words, which I suppose was what Sirius was feeling when he was out in the rain.

Just a couple errors...

-...Prong would fight and you should to (too)...

-...the brave and right sway (say)...

-...and blood and pouring out like wed (red) wine...

I've always loved Sirius but the story made me love him even more.

By the way, the last line is beautiful.
