Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter.

21 April 2007: Just now I read the wikipedia entry about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and I realised how much I miss Sirius Black and the Marauders.oh my gosh~

I promise I would update in the near future. If I didn't update quick enough, it would only be because I want this prolonged update to be the best I could manage. Trust me, I will update, because I need this update myself...

MORE ABOUT SIRIUS BLACK:)

(From JK's website. I think these bits have provided me with a better understanding of Sirius.)

Q: Does Harry have a godmother? If so, will she make an appearance in future books?

A: No, he doesn’t. I have thought this through. If Sirius had married… Sirius was too busy being a big rebel to get married. When Harry was born, it was at the very height of Voldemort fever last time so his christening was a very hurried, quiet affair with just Sirius, just the best friend. At that point it looked as if the Potters would have to go into hiding so obviously they could not do the big christening thing and invite lots of people. Sirius is the only one, unfortunately. I have got to be careful what I say there, haven’t I?

Q: Do you like Sirius Black?

A: I've had several letters asking this, which rather surprised me. The answer is, yes, I do like him, although I do not think he is wholly wonderful (ooooh, I hear them sharpening the knives over at Immeritus see "Fansite" section).

Sirius is very good at spouting bits of excellent personal philosophy, but he does not always live up to them. For instance, he says in "Goblet of Fire" that if you want to know what a man is really like, 'look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.' But Sirius loathes Kreacher, the house-elf he has inherited, and treats him with nothing but contempt. Similarly, Sirius claims that nobody is wholly good or wholly evil, and yet the way he acts towards Snape suggests that he cannot conceive of any latent good qualities there. Of course, these double standards exist in most of us; we might know how we ought to behave, but actually doing it is a different matter!

Sirius is brave, loyal, reckless, embittered and slightly unbalanced by his long stay in Azkaban. He has never really had the chance to grow up; he was around twenty-two when he was sent off to Azkaban, and has had very little normal adult life. Lupin, who is the same age, seems much older and more mature. Sirius's great redeeming quality is how much affection he is capable of feeling. He loved James like a brother and he went on to transfer that attachment to Harry.

Why did Harry have to forget the mirror he had been given by Sirius in 'Order of the Phoenix'?

I can’t give a full answer to this, because it is relevant to books six and seven. However, the short answer is that Harry was determined never to use the mirror, as is clearly stated in chapter 24: ‘he knew he would never use whatever it was’. For once in Harry’s life, he does not succumb to curiosity, he hides the mirror and the temptation away from himself, and then, when it might have been useful, he has forgotten it.

The mirror might not have helped as much as you think, but on the other hand, will help more than you think. You’ll have to read the final books to understand that!

Extra Stuff section: Mopsy the dog-lover (Goblet of Fire)

When Padfoot returns in 'Goblet of Fire', I initially had him stay with a highly-eccentric, dog-loving old witch on the edge of Hogsmeade. She kept a pack of ill-assorted dogs, was on constant bad terms with her neighbours because of the barking and the mess, and had welcomed in Sirius, assuming him to be a stray.

I think my editor was quite right to ask me to get rid of Mopsy, because she added nothing to the plot. I just liked portraying a batty dog-lover (as opposed to batty cat-lover Mrs. Figg). However, it made more sense to stow Sirius in a nice simple cave to have Harry, Ron, Hermione and Sirius's chat about Barty Crouch Jnr. without distractions.

I have written an editorial for MuggleNet.com in Jan 2005, it is an astrological prediction of Bellatrix Lestrange. Do check it out in the following link!

Thoughts On Blood by margotllama reviews
ONESHOT. Because though Sirius and I may be blood, there’s another sort of blood holding me and Bella together. And I don’t know if that’s the sort of blood I can ever escape. No one needs to tell Regulus Black about the bonds of family and of blood.
