Even though you say this chapter might be mistaken for a filler, due to lack of plot, I didn't feel it that way. We got to see more of Eleanor's emotions, and that's always enjoyable. The way she doubts Sirius, and the rumours following him, and how she doubts herself! I'd bet she's actually prettier than she thinks she is. I wish she'd have more confidence in her looks and personality.

And Sirius and Remus. WHY is everyone talking like there was something going on between them. I imagine this story is written somewhere around the time when they are practising to become Animagi for Lupin. If it's not that, that I have nooo idea what the truth is. The mysterious tone you keep writing with is perfect! It fits Sirius stories, especially this one, so well.

I love the fact that Lily perceived Sirius for more than the mischievous, good looking prankster everyone knew. This detail in particular explains why would Sirius become Harry's godfather later on. She must have known he was kind, despite his show-offs and Snape mistreating.

Author's Response: Yes, exactly! It's the kind of chapter that I love to write because it explores character psychological rather than just providing another event in the plot line. Because I wasn't planning on making this story very long, I felt the need to get into Ellie's head more closely in at least one chapter so that readers could understand her better and see her situation more clearly. It helped me a lot to dig deeper into her character, at the very least. ;)

That they were practising to be Animagi actually works as an excuse for their behaviour - very good guess, probably one the best that I've gotten for this story. But you'll see - I hope that the real solution doesn't disappoint.

Lily's a sharp one, I imagine, and since she could see past James's good looks, I liked to think that she could do the same with Sirius, only she found something very different than pureblood arrogance. Ah! Now you've caught me out thinking Sirily again. Must stop this. *runs away*

Thank you again for leaving such a lovely review! It's nicer than I thought to revisit these old stories - at least you're reading the good ones, and not the scary bad ones that I would feel guilty removing, but really wish that I had long ago. :P This story is one that I'm more proud of, and it means a lot that you're enjoying it. :D
