Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
Wow, that plot bunny became this?! This story is perhaps one of the best compliments I've ever received. After reading so much of your Sirius/Hermione, I'd forgotten how perfect the Sirius/Lily ship is for you. The ship really is yours. You demonstrate exactly why Sirius and Lily make for a perfect pairing - there's a mutual respect between them that James/Lily or Snape/Lily always lacks. Sirius doesn't worship her quite like the other two wizards do, doesn't put Lily on a pedestal, and that makes Sirius/Lily a "stronger" ship (more suited for the high seas? :P). Now I remember how you've managed to convert me.

Okay, this story. *focuses* So you're finally getting into the AU for Sirius/Lily, which is great to see. This chapter introduces the basis of their relationship (from first meeting to the beginnings of romance), making clear how you've ventured from the canon. And yet you're not that far off canon, which is what makes this more plausible and believable than most AUs. You've characterized all the characters exactly to canon, as well, which you always do anyway. I want to steal your Sirius, but you'd never allow that. *sigh* And your Regulus, I like him very much. He's a very intriguing character even in the books, and what you've done with him here is pretty much how I imagined him to be. The relationship between him and Sirius is spot on, perhaps even more close than Sirius lets on in OotP. What stood out to me was how Sirius noticed little details about Regulus, like the limp - it demonstrated the closeness between brothers without you needing to state it straight out. That's a definite sign of quality writing. :D

There's a great poetic feel to this chapter that made it a delight to read. The way that you describe the setting felt like a painting, very vivid and bright, but also beautiful. That may sound mushy, but it's all I can think of. The combination of romance and suspense reminds me of Reckless, which should be a good sign. ;) But I think this one's going to be better, much much better.
