This story definitely ranks high on my list of favorite Sirius/OC stories! The character development is fantastic and I absolutely loved the first part when Anwen was younger and how playful she was, not to mention her interactions with Sirius and how innocent they both acted towards one another, yet completely devoted. I had no doubt they wouldn't fall for one another and I am so glad you took the time to allow that to happen as many authors just jump right into romance. I just love Anwen's character and I felt like both her and Sirius grew so much. I am so glad that this particular tale did not end in tragedy as so many stories that take place during Sirius' youth stick so well to JK's story that it was a nice break as this time I found myself crying with happiness instead of sadness. Now I'm onto the next part of this tale, from the sound of the summary both parts following this sound equally marvelous and I am very intrigued with how you have managed to take JK's world and transform it into your own without losing the original feel of what Harry Potter was. Thank you for sharing!

Overall this is a well written fic. Your grasp of angst and romance writing is fantastic. Despite the length and the relative lack of action, this fic still keeps the reader enthralled, so much so that the reader is desperate to know what happens next and can’t bear to put it down!
However the characters do too many inexplicably stupid things, in the name of plot advancement. Why would the Potters remain in hiding for years when reappearing would clear Sirius’s name instantly? Then once Sirius is cleared, they re-appear anyway, rendering their hiding ridiculous.
When Sirius hides in Greece for four years with locals flirting at him, he could have plenty of opportunity to cheat and it could have been written in a way as to be believable. But there is no way he would do it on his last night when he knows Anwen is leaving to catch Wormtail!
Would Anwen’s parents who although neglecting her a little, clearly like her, really allow her to live unsupervised with a bloke when she’s 13?
You really could do with a good Brit-picker as your fic is littered with American expressions which aren’t applicable to the UK. Some of your research is good, Anwen’s welsh roots are convincing, the dairy farm, love of rugby, celtic customs (abit ott but not bad). But a lot doesn’t work; the rugby match is probably the worse. Fulham are a soccer team from London (so wouldn’t have Welsh accented fans, and more importantly wouldn’t be playing a rugby team – it’s a different sport!) Also in England we have a league table for these sports not a leaderboard and the supporters are on the terraces/stands not bleachers.
Finally Anwen is just too Mary Sue. She’s the brightest witch of her generation (she’s the only one to skip years), she could play quidditch professionally, she has a talent no-one else has had this century, she’s an animagus, can probably dual better than Dumbeldore. She’s in the RSC, dances and sings professionally. Was it really necessary to make her this perfect?
Overall, despite what I’ve written above, its still a good fic; the cannon timeline events are slotted in (and explained) well. The school years relationship between Sirius and Anwen is dealt with very well, considering it’s a potentially taboo area. Also there are some wonderful pieces of original inspiration. ‘Every little thing she does’ being written about a Veela - absolute class! Thanks for posting this and sharing it with us.

Never have I read a story on FF with so much vibrant detail. Hopefully someday I'll get to the sequels, but now I'm frankly exhausted.

Well, I have to say, your story idea and plot were really great ideas. I love Sirius, and this was one of the better ones about him.
Now for the criticism: your writing method was a little...off. I don't really no how to explain it...it was just...a little bit unrealistic writing wise. And you need to make the thoughts more evident that they are thoughts, by the way.
Also, Anwen (Much as I love her) was a little bit Mary-Sue. There is a thin line between wonderful and Mary-Sue, and you walked it pretty closely.
I would have liked a little bit more detail about her school work and stuff, and not so much about her relationship with Sirius, as cute as that was.
I'm going to keep reading now... :)

I am sorry, but this was my favorite chapter. GO DEATH EATERS! And normally I am not so insensitive, but I truly hate your story and all of it's pathetically faded copies of JKR's characters. All I have to say is HOW DARE YOU RUIN HARRY POTTER!
I hate Twilight a lot and for I while I was convinced that SMeyers was captain of the FAILboat. Now I think that you are either her skipper or first mate.
