Wow, what a mood switch from Sarah's story. But this was BRILLIANT, Jane. What an interesting way to describe the infamous event that led to Sirius's incarceration. I think my favorite part of this was how you used perspective and point of view to your advantage, telling us the story through the eyes of clueless Muggles who could only suspect that something was not quite right. It gave this story a very chilling feeling of suspense that I felt physically as I made my way toward the end. The anticipation was very, very tangible, with my knowledge of the horrible outcome that approached.

The imagery was also lovely. I especially like the juxtaposition of the broken glass and the chocolates, the sense of "before" and "after" that it brought, the sense of a happy moment ruined by violence. The characters you created were interesting and aroused a sense of pity in me. Especially poor Christine and Andrew the chocolatier. How sad.

Well done! I'm sure Sarah loves it :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much for coming by to read this, Amanda! It really does mean so much to me that you did. :3 Isn't it funny how different our stories turned out?

The emotions you describe having -- EXACTLY what I was going for, and I am so flattered to have evoked them in others. The glass in the chocolates is one of my favorite images, too -- I saw it in my head as being a sort of logical thing to have happened, and knew it had to go in there.

Thank you so much for the review, I am so honored!
