I love the romance in this fic! Sirius and Hermione were so sweet together. But I hated the whole thing with Harry(I think everything went down in 'Part Six').
Hermione should have never had to apologize to Harry for LOVING anyone. That whole thing about "Harry, we never meant to hurt you," was bullshit. Not everything is about Harry. He consider Sirius his father but he only really met the man a few times before and during the war, right. And didn't Hermione give up her parents to help Harry fight in the war (I only saw the movies and it seemed like she made them forget about her). I be pissed that he had the nerve to turn his back on her over something like that. All I'm saying is that argument would have went down a lot different with me.

This story is brilliant. I don't think there is anything that I can say to accurately describe how much I enjoyed reading this. It stayed true to the books as much as any Sirius/Hermione story can and I absolutely loved it.
Thank you so much for writing this and putting this out there. Really and truly, well done.

Perfect. Simply perfect. I love how you convey their depth of feeling, though it caused some uncomfortable twinges in me that causes me to wish to find a love so deep, profound, and all-consuming. I love how Hermione stuck by Sirius, finally choosing to seize what was her. Harry... that was harsh. I truly do love the children's names and thought process behind them. All was brilliant! Thanks for sharing!

Not only is this the most beautiful story I have read on this site, it is also superbly written. Love it.

This is, hands down, one of the best pieces of writing I have ever read.
I found it online a while ago, I think it was about a year and a half ago, and I couldn't get it out of my head for quite a long while - couple of months, I think. It even prompted me to write something of my own, and that was the first time I ever wrote HP fic.
The story itself is amazing. Herm/Sirius is probably my OTP for the fandom, those two characters have just the right dose of similarities and contrasts, maturity and spontaneity, and the romance part of this fic is truly amazing.
The plot itself is great, dealing with the "what if" issues most fanfics gloss over, and it's so real in its harshness and beauty, that the story flows with almost no effort at all. Every character is perfectly, well, in character, every move so spontaneous and realistic, I can truly believe this could have actually happened post books (yeah, no accounting for the epilogue here). There is no bashing at all, just normal, believable, character interactions, and this deals with many canon character issues, most of which were left hanging in the books. The twist - the France part, the interesting tidibi about the Ambassy and law regulations, well, those are all things I could have expected Herm from the book to do, so (and I realize I'm repeating myself here) perfectly fitting that reading this story is almost like watching one of those old tapestries, in which the image on it is made of perfectly weaved threads, each one completing the others. So, yeah, wonderful.
That "don't you ever regret", well, it perfectly sums it up.
PS: This is the bitchin' & complaining part. Which, in this case, is the: parts that were slightly less-than-perfect, but didn't feel like spoiling the review and writing 'em above: out of all the parts, the last one is the one I liked the least. I'm not a sucker for "big showdown" parts, and having them meet right there at king's cross, with little Alastor showing off his perfect family, feels kind of forced. not that much - it's still a believable, meaningful and symbolic part, that just *had* to be written, but lacks the power of the rest. The spontaneity of it, if you would, with the "this is my brother, and this is my sister, and Herm is not a housewife". I do realize this is still a oneshot, though, and letting facts speak for themselves would have taken up too much space.
Also, yeah, I'm not really a huge fan of lotsofkids! family, especially when involving twinse, because usually all the bunch of kids ends up being underdeveloped and often only used to show that the characters have an happy life with sex in it. Once again, I realize, one shot, but if the number of kids is the only thing I have to complain about, well, it means it's wonderful. If it was a school project, I'd give it a 98.
I hope the second part of the review didn't make it sound as though I'm complaining, because I'm not. It's all completely awesome, amazing, and I wish I knew more words to explain just how much I enjoyed this.
Thank you so much for sharing this masterpiece with the fandom, really.

This is such a beautiful telling of SB/HG's story. You were incredibly true to character, and I am definitely going to check out your other works. (:
| LadyStiff chapter 1 . 8/23/2012
This was so amazing. You're amazing! And yes, it certainly was a beast of a one-shot and so wonderfully written.
I laughed when you said you were a nerd in regards to the children and you are that, but most of us are. ;-)

This was a great story. Well written and thorough.

I am completely captured by the perfection of this story. It has to be the one fic I've read that shows that not everything ends with a perfect life. At least Harry was pleasant at the end. That was nice.
