I have to say right off that I loved this! Superb! I have a lot of notes for you but most of it positive. There is one downer that I want to mention and I'll start that first before 'squeeing' over your fic here. The downer is you have one canonical error. You stated how Andromeda was starting her 7th year. She's actually a year older. She finished her 7th year Spring of '71 while Sirius stated his Fall of '71. But not a HUGE error.

I ADORE how you have the Blacks functioning. I mean Walburga taking control was fantastic. I love the interactions between them all how you placed the interactions for all. I have to remark of doing a very nice job of having the Lestranges of an older age. (I have an odd adoration for Rabastan Lestrange).

Beyond that, your James was spot on! I fell in love with him right off. So many people struggle with James but you have him done well. I LOVED the line "You look like a loat." I literally cracked up and it is so a James and Sirius interaction.

Also James tackling Sirius and pinning him to the ground is something I've always seen happening. Sirius can just be a jerk and deserves to be knocked down. And the last part was perfect too I loved that he tested things and James hit him for it. SO them! 10/10

Author's Response: Hooray! I know there's sooo many Marauder fics like this out there that start out with them meeting, etc. And I know people kind of look at them with dread. For that reason, I'm so glad you liked it :)

Thanks for the correction on Andromeda - clearly, I need to check my facts before writing :P I don't know what I will do about it - I liked having her there for what she added to Sirius. Perhaps she can be seeing off a friend. I don't know yet ^.^

I think the Blacks are so much fun to write, even if I hate them as individuals. I like trying to imagine what they were like and I figure they werent always terrible towards Sirius.

I love James to death :) I'm so glad you loved him too. He's a lot of fun to write, and I think he's really intelligent and has so much more to him than just a Lily obsession. His interactions with Sirius are a blast. And I think things could have been pretty testy between them at first, considering their differint backgrounds. So I totally saw a little scuffle happening too! :D

Thank you so much for the wonderful review - it was a joy to read and respond to.
