Okay, I have to drop all my canonized preconceived notions at the door with this fic. I don't hate Sirius. James and Lily aren't together. Got it. Okay...

First of all, I am trying to get the feel for how you are characterizing Sirius... He's not the complete playah who has a way with the ladies but is a lecherous jerk (at least not in this story), but because, as he acknowledges, he knows how to make a woman happy. He seems really psychologically intuitive, wanting to find out the reasons for Lily's unhappiness. That's something I would attribute to Remus, but I think the way you are developing Sirius, it kind of works. He comes up with quite a few deep, profound thoughts and the like. So far I am really enjoying the way you portray him.

I LOVED this phrase: "His gift of pure honesty, spun with a true admission of his previous failures all leading to a single moment of perfection, colored their world like lights reflecting through the brilliant prisms of a stained glass window." In fact, the whole last part of the story, I guess my husband was watching me on the sly, and then he started making fun of the way I started gradually smiling over it... grrr...

I like that even though you portray him as more sensitive than I usually think, you still have some of the good old Sirius that I think of in there, too. He's kind of cocky, even if it's just sarcastically - him saying that he's a good enough dancer for the both of them. He likes to party (but it seems like it's because of his angst!)

Okay, and while we are talking about the angst, I need to just get it out of my system now. If you are going to make him angsty, then I am going to have to like him as portrayed by you. That is the one thing that 100% guarantees I'm a believer in basically any story in the universe. "Loving people only meant hurt and deceit" ?? More, please!
