So many emotions in this piece! It starts out beautifully, innocent and then in and instant changes to a storm of confusion, hatred, anger, and whips back to cheerful. Another wonderful one-shot!

I love that the conflict between the family started at such a young age. It makes sense that the "good" ones would find comfort in each other. I thought it was neat how you included Narcissa and Regulus in the "good" ones. Both of them got caught up in bad things, but in the end they turned away from it. A subtle hint to where their hearts truly lie.

The bit about everyone should love everyone, except Regulus, was hilarious. It was just enough to show that bit of Sirius from such a young age. He was already laughing at everything, making jokes when he was angry, all the things that he became as a young adult.

That family intrigues me just because there are so many different sides to it. The "good" and the "bad", yes, but all of the characters in it are much more complicated than they appear on the surface.

Lovely read!

Author's Response: Ah, thank you for noticing the grouping of the good ones! You're the first to catch it. As I was arranging the ending, I realized that things were falling neatly into place with the good guys outside and the bad ones inside. I did a bit of thinking, figured out who, in the very end, turned out to have a heart on them, and stuck them out in the snow to have a laugh. Narcissa and Regulus are complicated, but I say with no hesitation that there is good in them. I'm so glad you noticed that!!!

I suppose I watered down all the characters, in a sense, to get them to where they would be a young age. I wanted them to be age appropriate, but still show signs of who they would become. I hope it showed a bit of complexity, as there certainly is enough of it to go around in the Black household. :P

Thank you for three lovely reviews! I was so pleasantly surprised when I clicked on the Unanswered Reviews button. :D
