Review:SiriuslyPeeved says:
Oh dear, I'm so sorry I missed you! I had this written out in TextEdit and thought I had posted it but apparently deceived myself...

The double layering of Minerva's grief with Peter Pettigrew's deception is just heartbreaking. I have also always envisioned Minerva as a teacher who would form personal attachment to her students even if this is possibly not the best idea. Believing in Sirius's treachery and then discovering it was actually Peter who committed that sin must have been terrible for Minerva.

I very much enjoyed how you used the counting of the dead to dramatic effect -- it was like a bell tolling. I also love the Millay poem you referenced -- she is a good match for a story about Minerva McGonagall.

The scene in Remus's kitchen was also nicely put together -- the details of disorder effectively show Remus's state of mind.

I really enjoyed this even though it made me misty eyed! Nice job :)

Author's Response: That's okay! I didn't want to bother you and seem too demanding, so thank you. :)

I am so glad I am not the only one to see McGonagall getting attached to her students. It's hard to remain unattached in that sort of setting, I think. Watching them grow up and all that. I can't even imagine what she must have gone through when she first heard about Sirius and then later, learning the truth. It's kind of interesting to think about these characters who had been through it all, you know?

Yay, I'm happy the counting worked for you. I wasn't sure if the formatting would throw some people off or not but it seems that most people are okay with it. Yes, that's kind of the idea I was going for - the bell tolling.

Gah, I always feel so terribly for Remus, what he must've gone through with his best friends. The messy kitchen is exactly reflective of his mind right now so I'm glad you picked up on that.

Ha, I am okay with people getting misty eyed. It means I did a good job writing emotions!

Thank you for your lovely review. Much appreciated. :)
