Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
What you've done with Steph's story is fascinating because you've inverted the happy fairy tale story, not only making it darker, but using this darkness to exemplify the Sirius/Lily relationship. Wow, I need to stop writing essays, sorry. :P But it's true - by changing the ship, you've altered many other things in the story, yet have somehow retained the basic idea. Sirius isn't a prince charming at all. He actually reminded me of a Byronic vampire, coming out of the night in his dress robes.

You really couldn't resist that shot at Dumbledore here, could you? :P Though it does fit into Sirius's portrayal well, fitting in with how Sirius acted in OotP. What Sirius says about Dumbledore is right, though, as DD was exploiting Lily's kindness and should have known that the Slytherins were running rampant in his school. The Prince's Tale scenes in HBP show that the Slytherins were a real problem during that time.

It's beautifully written, as all your stories are, and you make the ship so amazing - no one else can quite capture Sirius and Lily together as you do. If you ever complain about not being good enough again, I will throw this story at you as proof of your talent.

Author's Response: Maybe it's my exhaustion but your review made me cry. I was really worried about this story not only because it was Steph's but because I was afraid I had strayed too far from her story...so much so that it was unrecognizable. I did try and thread many of her ideas through but most of them turned out more subtle than I intended and I was afraid no one would see them.

Thank you for the review. I appreciate you not only taking the time to do it but because you are so loyal to read and review anything no matter how weird it make look :D It's been rough getting back into fanfic and without you cheering me on, I don't think I would ever manage it. *hugs*
