Review:Snapdragons says:
At first when I saw the challenge this was written for, I went, "Yay! Wedding fluff!" Except, it turned out, this wasn't really fluff. But I'm glad, because instead I stumbled on something that's really incredible and powerful!

I loved how you set up and ended the story with his death, which was clever and worked really nicely. It was a beautiful way to set it up. "Although it was but a small thread in the fabric of his life, if it was removed, the whole of him would unravel." I thought that was a gorgeous way to put it!

It was a little surprising to see Sirius getting married, but a happy one. I was glad to see he was with Win, and that he was in a healthy relationship who loved him for who he was, despite flaws. The way you described the wedding was perfect! I did get to have a little bit of my wedding fluff, after all :)

Her murder - I didn't see it coming, even though we know that Sirius has nobody when he comes out of Azkaban. It was so abrupt, and it was so horrible that they only had that one day together. That's just not fair! :(

"We are everywhere and we will win" is such a frightening message. The rise of Voldemort really was a terrifying time. :/ I loved how this was what spurred him, though, and how Win's death was the motivation for his fight.

It was so sweet for him to realize at the end that the reason why he had never received forgiveness was because it was never needed.

And I adored the last paragraph, which was really powerful and beautifully written. "In the final moment of your life, when you come face to face with Death, you donít fight him, but welcome him." Really, really beautiful - reminded me a bit of the Tale of Three Brothers.

This was gorgeous all around and I'm so glad I read it! You did a wonderful job :)

Author's Response: Yeah, sorry about the throw off :) But I'm glad you enjoyed it and you thought so well of it!!

Thank you so much for what you said about that line! I thought so hard about how to word that, I'm very happy that a) you were able to understand it and b) you thought it was gorgeous.

Yes, you did get fluff!!

And then I took it away ::sighs:: I'm sorry--just so angsty I am (plus Yoda-y).

Sirius, to me, loved deeply and was driven by impulse and passions so it would make sense that such a catastrophic event would lead him through his days.

I did want to tie the ending into canon somehow and this seemed the best way. I'm glad that you were able to enjoy this!

Thank you for your review!! xChar
