I just finished reading this entire fanfic in roughly twelve hours.

All I can really say is I fricken love it and possibly you. :)

I'm usually really .. anal about sticking to the original Rowling plot, but I think the way you portrayed Sirius in this was amazing. And you're right, he deserved happiness after his crummy life. So, thank you. I am now much more open to the idea of reading fanfic that doesn't follow canon.

Anyways, thank you for the amazing story. I plan on reading more of your stuff today!

Author's Response: :O

I'm a huge hypocrite because more often than not, I prefer canon to alternate endings. But with certain characters, if they led lonely, miserable lives, I actually prefer AU. For instance, in one of my favorite fanfics on HPFF, Severus Snape is with an OC. When it comes to Sirius, I can only stand his life story to adhere to canon if the fic gives him unseen happiness earlier in life, to fill in the gaps and provide a happier, more fulfilled backstory.

Let me just pause for a minute and express gratitude that, first of all, you found this story at all. I imagine it would be buried in fanfic among the many Sirius/OC stories floating around out there, and as it was my very first foray into fanfiction, my feelings about it fluctuate constantly. I am very flattered that this story has opened you up to possibly accepting other fics that aren't canon compliant; that feels like I definitely did something right. I'm very pleased.

Oh my goodness, thank you! I do hope to see your name again somewhere around my page. I have another finished novel that follows the Hogwarts timeline very closely canon-wise; I also have a work in progress that's about as far from canon as you can get, since it's skewed to be told in the form of various fairy tales. I hope you enjoy whatever you choose to read, and thank you so much for stopping by and reading Curious Happenings at Number Twelve, and for taking the time to leave this lovely review. It really made my day. :)
