Well wow didnít expect this. It was so deep to tell you the truth I expected something much more shallow. Sorry but thatís what I truly expected I expected a great but a lot more shallower (sp?) story. The story was in a way quite poetic and I like the fact itís so simple but still so incredible powerfull. Every word just hits the mark. I mean I could feel with you character I could place myself in her shoes and thatís something a lot of writers canít pull off. So kudos for you on that! Hmm I just realized the story is a podcast and I can see exactly why such a simple but still such a complex story.


I think itís great she didnít get him. That she didnít get her happy end. I mean yes itís sad and harsh but life usually is. Harsh I mean. Reality isnít that you get the perfect guy and the perfect life ( otherwise they skipped me) So yes itís great she didnít hget him and he didnít put much thought on her I always thought Sirius found his friend much more important then his flings.


You know as youíve seen throughout my review that I think this was amazing but I think the story would be greater, in my opinion, well if she had stayed anonymous It would fit the whole one night stand, a number on a list or a notch in your bedpost thing that was going one. It was something I immensely enjoyed while most of the theme I hate it when a writer portrays Sirius does that. So I have to say well done on that you made me like something I dislike.


Well I truly enjoyed your story! Good luck with any future work!

Author's Response: This review has gone unanswered for over two years! Am I the worst, or what? I'm so sorry! *sends flowers*

Even though I never did manage to write up a response until now, please know that that in no way lessens how wonderful it's been to have received such a lovely review! I'm so, so happy that I was able to change your initial expectations about this story! It can be really hard to change a person's mind when they've already sort of settled on an idea of what's to come, so I'm incredibly flattered that my writing was able to do just that for you! And I love hearing that the story came off as almost poetic - I know there's a fine line between simplistic and boring and it's great to hear the style worked out!

Mmm, so true about unhappy endings. They're far too common in real life and far too uncommon in fanfiction. And I can definitely understand that even though he is an incredible friend, it would take a very special someone to make him a good boyfriend! haha

Ah, yes, the ending! It's so intriguing to me that there's such a vast number of differing views on my naming the character at the end! Some people loved it and were really glad that I put it in, but others agreed with you! I believe that the reason I decided to name her is because it felt like this was her last chance to be remembered, you know? It was her last chance to sort of just say 'I do have a name and I am not just a notch.' But sometimes I wish I'd tried it the other way, too! haha Either way, I'm thrilled to hear that I made you like something you usually dislike! Woot! Normally I don't see Sirius as a big player, but it was just fitting in this circumstance, so I just went with it. :-p

Anyway, thank you again for the great review! I sincerely appreciate it! :)
