Tagging you from the Review the Person Above You thread in the common room!

Wow. So short yet so powerful. I appreciate the efficiency and restraint of this piece. Like you, I think that I would never run out of words to describe the thoughts and emotions that tore through Sirius's mind after he learned of Peter's betrayal. It must have been like watching everything he had ever fought for or cared about come crashing down.

Peter's note was haunting in its simplicity. Nothing more needed to be said. It hinted at a strong feeling of remorse mixed into his cowardice. Very appropriate.

And then Sirius takes to the sky, driving toward Godric's hollow with everything he has. You did an amazing job of capturing both the physical cold and the emotional despair that would have come with his flight.

Oh, the thoughts of little Harry! How horrible that must have been. The pain and grief radiating through him. The realization that the last earthly embodiment of James and Lily's love might also be gone. It makes it hurt even more when you realize that he would go for twelve long years without seeing the boy he cared for so much.

And you close with his grief at realizing that he had been the one, indirectly, to bring about their deaths by suggesting Peter as their Secret Keeper. Living with that knowledge... well, it's a wonder he was able to go on living.

This was beautifully done. Your writing was exquisite. I think you left this one, small mistake in there just to test us:

-- "Sirius had suggest Peter." - suggested.

Awesome story!

Author's Response: Of course that was just to test you! Had to make sure you're on your toes ;)!

I'm so happy you liked this, I was nervous that maybe it wasn't as emotionally impacting as I wanted it to be.

Sometimes I think the only thing that kept him living was his desire to see Harry again and kill Peter. Sirius isn't the forgive and forget type, the anger he had at that man for taking everything away would never have subsides. I'm so scared to move to this part of Before They Fall - there's just so much darkness in everything surrounding the ending of the Marauders ;(.

Okay, I'm going to go before I start blubbering.

This was an amazing review that absolutely made my day, thanks so much for it :)!

You better get ready to mail me chocolate on a daily bases when I get to the point in BTF when James and Lily go into hiding. :P

Thanks again, darling!!
