I really appreciate the uniqueness of this story compared to all of the others I’ve read. I do find the canon version of Sirius to be rather unbelievable. He never seems to question Dumbledore’s actions regarding himself or Harry. Thank you for sharing this story.

Shouldn’t have expected anything more from the author of Rise of the Wizards I guess.

Excellent chapter! Didn't see that ending coming. Very original and very well done. Of course Sirius Black is a Black. Piss them off at your own expense... How could he ever trust Dumbledore after what he did to him? And Dumbledore was likewise powerful and ruthless. Just look what he did to Sirius and Harry. Sirius did the right thing by eliminating him. Dumbledore was too dangerous and too much of a threat to Sirius and Harry to just leave him be. Snape was likewise too dangerous to leave him be. Remus, I don't know about him... I'm on the fence regarding Remus, but as Dumbledore's man, he needed to be removed from the equation, too. Love the Game of Thrones feeling to the story. Great job!

Treasure Island? Excellent chapter! Wow - seeing Sirius become serious as a dad is kinda scary. Of course, it's not like I had to do the same thing myself for my sprog... (That was scary, too!) Great job bringing that out. Parenting is hard work. Kudos for that! Love how you are bringing along the relationship between Sirius and Harry. It's following a generally accepted pattern for adopted children. Looks like you've put quite a bit of research into this, either that or you've lived it yourself... Can't wait to see what's next!

Fantastic chapter! So what happened to Snape? Not that I care about him, but I'm wondering if he got away or if he met a well-deserved and hopefully gory end... Great job with getting inside Sirius' head and putting a believable twist on the Shrieking Shack scene. Great job with the pacing and the characterization. Looking forward to the next chapter!

Damn this story has been a fucking trip but one that was well worth it. Holy hell. Well done.
Well done. Well written. Just good fucking job. Damn. That ending though. Just completely new and totally unexpected. As you can maybe tell by the cussing I'm just in awe.

It is rather telling how there's hardly a difference in character between edgelord!indy!Harry in Rise of the Wizards and Sirius in this one

This is a great story, really interesting take on Sirius being exonerated and becoming powerful!

Wow! Loved this story, never have I read your version of the downfall of Riddle. Great job! Thanks for sharing!

Dumbledore comes over as pretty hypocritical in this one:

Waffling about how Sirius has to let grudges go after he himself was part of the "guilty until proven innocent - but let's not give him the opportunity to do so"-Club, AND then generously donating the compensation money to Snape, who seems to be unable to do any wrong in Dumbles' eyes. (Quote from another story, forgot which one: Harry: "Tell me, headmaster, who do I have to kill so you give ME a second, third and fourth chance?")

And then the fake outrage about the badges. I can not believe he was honest. After years of abuse and bullying - the Heir of Slytherin disaster comes to mind - stupid BADGES make him finally do his job? Pull the other one...

I still like your story, but only after heavy editing, especially the corporeal punishment stuff. The wizarding world may be stuck in the Victorian age, but a large percentage of the people depicted in the books - and therefore, the fics - was raised in the late 20th century muggle world, where beating a child could - and should - land you in jail.

Hmmm quite twisty and plotty... well done!

First things fírst: I really like your fic, and have read it several times already, but I always get a bad taste in my mouth when I read about the parenting decisions you have Sirius make.

I think it is a very bad idea to give a seriously abused child to a seriously damaged character to raise and then make him threaten said child with corporeal punishment if he shouted out against more abuse (and yes, just pulling Harry out of Hogwarts, away from the only place he ever considered home, would be a form of abuse). Anyway, Sirius should have started that conversation totally differently. Still, I do not really think Harry would have behaved like he did in your fic. He would not have blustered, he would have shrunk into himself, lost whatever respect for and trust in his godfather he ever had and - I'm guessing - either completely lost hope or tried to run away, because yet another grown-up had shown that Harry's feelings are completely and utterly irrelevant.

Also: ABUSED CHILD! Tanning his backside with a ruler would not ever in my experience as an educator have resulted in any positive behavioural change. Ever. And please do not try to tell me that having someone whip or beat a child with a stick is a purging and beneficial thing. The only thing it would cause is hate towards the person who set the punishment - or, if the child is broken enough, you will end up with a well-behaved robot.
