I had my doubts about a cheerful, Christmassey story about the Blacks, and them doing something as normal as building a snowman, but you pulled it off really well and it was all rather clever, actually. I really like the idea of the sort of happy, innocent appearance and beginning of the story disguising a much darker theme, just as in the ordinary lives of Blacks where those darker feelings and tensions are always lurking just beneath the surface... if that makes sense xD

It was a really interesting insight into their lives and their relationships with each other, especially between Sirius and Andromeda. Characterisations were all very good as well. I particularly liked Bellatrix - she was brilliantly cold and sneering and Bellatrixish :D Great stuff!

Author's Response: I'm surprised so many people came into this story expecting a cheerful holiday story. I should probably take a second look at my summary... Anyway, I'm glad you were convinced by the end that it was a whole lot darker beneath the surface. The Blacks are anything but cheerful! I've always liked the idea of Sirius and Andromeda being friends too. As for Bellatrix, well, she's been my favorite character forever. Thanks for dropping by and reviewing!
