|Reviews for Suddenly I See|
| ScifiPapplova chapter 44 . 2/11
Okay, so right now its midnight, and I just finished this story, I really should be asleep, but I needed to write this review otherwise I'd be thinking about it all night. I loved it. I read Nobody Sees Me Wishing in like two days and I immediately starting reading this story today. I'm so incredibly sad that Ivy was killed, but it is a great example of the casualties of war and that even though Ivy wasn't in the order she was still killed. I may or may not have bawled my eyes out like a little girl upon finishing your story. Everything about it was so perfect, in both SiS and NSMW, the way you wrote them... it just sort of flowed. There is no other way I can describe it other than perfect. Seriously, I'm at a loss for words.
Just... keep writing stories because I like you and I love your writing and you're fantastic and talented and awesome. This has been the first story (this includes Nobody Sees Me Wishing) that I have cried this hard over, and I just want to thank you so much for posting this and taking all of us readers on an awesome ride with the Marauders and Ivy and Eleanor and everyone else. Thank you.
Okay, I think thats enough writing. Sleepy times for me now. Keep writing awesome stuff and yeah.
And this is a bit long. Woops.

I wasn't initially going to write a review, not because I hated the story, but because just typing something out about Sirius and Ivy was seriously going to make me start bawling. no pun intended.
I read 'Nobody Sees Me Wishing' before I read this, and I remember being confused after reading about her death, because I just couldn't believe it. How could she die? She needed to make up with Sirius, get married to Sirius, be happy with Sirius. But then again, that's why it's so tragic. She was never fully involved with the war, but she still got murdered.. and that's war. It's just so horrible, so evil, so wrong, and I really think you captured that.
And Sirius' reaction.. I'm tearing up now even thinking about it. All I can do is tear up while thinking about Sirius and Ivy's ending, and while there's the comfort that they were in love with each other and happy before it ended, it's not the same knowing that they'll never get together.
But back to the story this review is for.. I really loved how this was in Sirius' POV. It cleared up a lot of stuff, like the main reason why Sirius was "glaring" at Ivy and making her think he hated her. How he figured out Sebastian was him, and the novel was about them. And especially the ending. My gosh, the ENDING. I think my heart broke reading about Sirius and how he dealt with Ivy's death, especially after he never had the chance to give her her ring, and could only give it to her at her funeral.
It's ironic that Remus and Sirius are the last of the Marauder's alive (we'll conveniently forget Peter) and they were both so closely related with Ivy, either as her best friend or her lover respectively.
It might be sad, and so bittersweet, but I couldn't help but have a request. Could you write a one-shot set during the Order of the Phoenix where Remus and Sirius reflect over Ivy? And maybe the cause of it all was Harry asking for advice on girls to the both of them, maybe during the Christmas break?
I am so in love with SiriusxIvy that it's emotionally painful to even think about them. I can't imagine Sirius with anyone else.

Not a big fan of this one, really. Sirius's words often don't seem to match up with his thoughts - like when he tells Ivy that he wanted to go with her because it would be enjoyable for him? We have his thoughts, and that never crossed them. He considered it as a favor to her, helping her get out more, and as a ploy to get Sylvia jealous. Nothing about him enjoying her company. He even only thinks about her company in relation to getting Remus jealous enough to act on it with the occasional "she's interesting" thrown in. Not so convincing.
I still think you're amazing, though.

How could you? I can't believe you killed her? I can't believe she's gone? I think both deaths hit me hardest reading this than nobody sees me wishing. I don't know why. I guess it just ended and here having Sirius react... Oh god. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?
I'm going to go sit in the corner and cry now...

Sirius is such an idiot for someone who supposedly knows all about girls.

NO! :'( I hate the ending, why can't sirius be happy! You are an amazing writer, I loved both versions of this story (the one for Ivy's POV and then this one in Sirius' POV). I cried so badly at the end of this story. Just to see sirius so broken... It hurts. God! I wish this wasnt how it ended but its such an amazing and heart felt ending that in a way, it's perfect. I hope you continueing writing stories like this one as your really are a genius when you write and you automatically pull the readers in. I didnt sleep for some of the days whilst I was reading your story, just because I couldn't put it down and had to know what happened next. Well done!

This was just as amazing as the other story. Actually it was way more complex told from Sirius's point of view, both hilarious and heartbreaking. I literally cried when he lost it all in the end.
