One rank lower than God Albus Dumbledore love it.
I think this was a very sweet ending for this part of the story, I'm excited to read the sequel but also bummed that it isn't finished. I hate waiting for updates... Anyway, thanks for the great story! I really like the way you managed to incorporate the little glimpses of Remus/Sirius' past into the natural flow of the story. Great job!

I knew that would happen! I knew it! Oh man I am so pumped, of course it had to be last minute. If I didn't know you loved happy endings so much I would be terrified right now. Am a little bit anyways...

Oh my lord. This story is driving me crazy I'll have you know. I hope Harry and Ron and up friends in the end anyway, I love their friendship to the level that I love Sirius as Harry's father figure. Mainly I just don't want to think about how terrible this is for everyone right now. Just find the damn rat already...

Can I just say that this is my all-time favorite Harry and Sirius story? You really highlight the shadows and vulnerabilities of each of these characters, bringing them together in a way that proves how much they need each other. Each character is very believable, and I love the fact that they behave much the way that the canon characters behave. It's as though the same people we know and love were simply thrown into a slightly different universe where they face different challenges from the ones they face in the books. You even manage to capture the Dursleys, despite the fact that you make some changes to Harry's situation at his aunt and uncle's. A lot of stories that feature abusive Dursleys completely alter the characters until they are unrecognizable from the neglectful, emotionally abusive, normality-obsessed hypocrites they are in the books. But the way you emphasize their need to appear ordinary-not just with regard to Harry's magic, though, but also in terms of the abuse-makes them seem closely related to the Dursleys we know, as well as the fact that they remain disgustingly self-righteous throughout the whole thing, latching onto the lie that they are in no way to blame and really believing it.
But I REALLY love the way you handle Harry and Sirius and Lupin. It's obvious that you know something about the psychology of abused children, and this makes Harry and Sirius's growing relationship incredibly moving and realistic. You manage to communicate Harry's need, desperation, anxieties, longing, fears, and loves in a way that lets the reader feel what he is feeling, despite the fact that he is only 8 years old. And Sirius. You bring out all of his best qualities even while acknowledging some of his struggles and failures. Your Sirius is so vulnerable and haunted, I just want to give him a hug! He and Harry are each just what the other needed, and this is one of the very most satisfying elements of your story. And of course, Remus. We don't get to spend much time inside of Remus's head in the books, but you do a wonderful job of fleshing him out more fully and making his hopes and concerns very believable. His and Sirius's reconciliation is really beautiful-they both wanted and needed it so much!
This story made me have so many feelings, and of course it also doesn't hurt that you're really a phenomenal writer. From phrases describing Sirius's thoughts as "chasing each other's tales," to your characters' spot-on dialogue, you really bring the reader into the world you have created. And the plot is compelling, well-balanced, well-paced, and exciting-the story spends ample time exploring the characters and acquainting us with each charming scene, but also moves forward in a way that keeps the reader engaged and interested.
I'm used to doing peer-editing stuff in English classes, so I feel sort of weird just posting a nonstop stream of praise. But I really only have wonderful things to say about this story. I'm so glad I encountered it, and I can only hope that you might write more!

This was marvelous! I love it. I haven't run into fanfictions like this that focus on Sirius and Harry...and this one. Awwww...it's sweet.
Can I hope that the Genova Convention applies to Wizarding Society? Because if it does...oh dear. I think Fudge might be in great trouble...not that we care. The idiot.
-hands over platter- Magic cupcakes for you! Checking to see if the sequel is up yet!

OH COME ON REMMY AND YOUR SUPPOSED TO BE THE SMART ONE? JEESH!
and you know something. If Sirius had blown up that street so entirely that it totally demolished it, did anyone ever wonder how on Earth the rat's finger survived?
