Hi there, it's me with your request :)

I loved this piece! The way you had not really put in much action but just had Phineas describing his lifestyle was really interesting to read, because I've really never thought about it before! I think the way you described each of the aspects of Phineas's life was very clever because they all had a proper reason behind it, and overall was described really well.

I love how you characterised Phineas too! He was such an old codger, and I love how you made him so scathing of the other portraits except for one - his views on headmasters and headmistresses were funny to see, and he was such a pureblood Slytherin snob the way you wrote him ;)

I love your idea of Peeves being a Headmaster's assisstant before he was a poltergeist too, and all of Phineas's noticing little details about Dumbledore. I thought the way you brought Dilys Derwent into it was very clever too!

But I loved the ending the most in this. It was so sad to see Sirius like that, and I love the conclusion Phineas gathered from it, because it was so true for both him and Sirius. I felt so sorry for both of them :(

Overall, I loved this! It's a really great descriptive and detail-rich piece which is so different from anything I've ever read :) Great job!

Author's Response: Hi TGK!

Oh I am absolutely flattered! This review totally made my day - possibly my week :P

Haha I am glad I got Phineas' characterization correct - I'm a slytherin snob myself so it wasn't too hard to write :P

I really appreciate such a sweet review hitting on all aspects. Thank you so much!!! I am glad you really liked this!!
