Review:Pixileanin says:
Ah, yes. You have put a fancy twist on the whole stalker-like feel of Sirius Black that we get from the movie. The strange, smelly man who wants to come into your home, eat your food, wear the clothes that you pick out for him and then, when no one is around, he... redecorates your flat.

And she accepts it. I like it for the sheer absurdity of the scenario. But then, we the readers, or at least those of us who paid attention at the beginning, remember that Rachael knows who he is and that he's not the total stranger he seems to be. Funny how they seem to redecorate each other. He does her flat and she gets him clothes. Again, you have thrown in these parallels that I enjoy so much. And I particularly like the end, where he goes off to presumably do some real stalking...

Author's Response: God, he was a bit of a stalker, wasn't he? I remember reading PoA for the first time where he came in and slashed Ron's curtains looking for Peter and it was a teensy bit frightening.

That's an interesting way of looking at it -- they redecorate each other. He tries to make her house into more of a home, the only thing he can think of to do for her in his limited means, and she tries to make him into a presentable, clean human being.

Glad you're still enjoying it :)
