I'm a little disappointed. Considering everything you've written about Sirius (and the harsh personality you've given him) in this story, I was certain after the end of last chapter that somehow he had figured out about Penny's bet or even had a bet of his own going on with James.
Nothing you have written points to Sirius having real feelings for her. It all seems very rushed now that I've read this chapter.
I'm still looking forward to see how you end it though.

Author's Response: I was actually considering going that way in the beginning but then as I was writing the chapter after the whole boggart scenario, I just thought that there was much too much sensitivity left in Sirius. He's a bully but like most bullies they're hiding something dark. In that chapter, I saw that him confiding in her with a little of his problems showed him being very comfortable with her - pointing to some SORT of feelings he had for her.

In saying that, Sirius isn't shallow and he's definitely found Penny a very funny, intriguing character because she's so strange and oblivious to things despite her being so 'intelligent' and I just hoped that the nature of their relationship, being very playful and not so serious, might've added to the way he's comfortable with her.

Also, there was a point where he did get slightly disgruntled by Remus asking to see her privately, which was another subtle way I tried getting it across that he was developing feelings for her.

Anyway, thanks for telling me how you feel about my story! I really appreciate it :D and the ending's quite not what people would expect either, I think :)
