Review:SilentConfession says:
This is, if possible, better than the last chapter. I'm speechless for words but i loved every moment of this chapter and practically melted with Sirius's story. It's all true though, there weren't as many things tying him to earth as there were for the others. I also loved how you explored his character and what he learned from that awful prison experience and highlighted his strengths, his ability to grasp hope when there doesn't seem to be any left.

This chapter made me feel sad though, bittersweet may be the better way to describe my feelings after reading this. Because no matter how happy Sirius is about this reunion how much hope and happiness he can grab there is this underlying idea that nothing will ever be as it was. There is a whole past that each of them have that can't really be shared with the rest of the group. It's a line that keeps them from becoming as close as they were before because they all have their demons to fight.

I loved the ending scene here, Snape's acceptance and realizations of James and Lily both. I like that they remain platonic and that they can both share those moments of happiness together [their childhood] but that again, that past is gone and what they have is in front of them and he needs to accept that. I'm so glad Snape was able to to an extent. The lead up to his realization was marvelous too, how he realized that James too died for the ones he loved and was able to respect it rather than reject it. (J/L for life!)

I loved the character work you did here though, every bit of it was absolutely fantastic and it made me feel along with the characters. Feel the highs and lows of their life and emotions. That is an incredibly powerful writing tool, to make a reader feel like they are alongside your characters and experiencing what they have.

What is going on with the clock? Such a curiosity and you keep putting small hints here and there that put me on edge about this place. I'm just waiting for it to screw these characters over or to become some hellish nightmare where none of this was even real but that all these characters are somehow trapped within themselves. Or something. I don't know but it worries me greatly... Plus... this chapter was too wonderful, it gives me a sense of foreboding that things are going to go very, very badly later on... =0

Author's Response: It was honestly so refreshing to be able to see everything the way Sirius does, outside of the box. It's sad but true that he doesn't have attachments to earth in the same way his friends do; not to say that he doesn't miss Harry, because he very much does. But he can appreciate the fact that he will someday see Harry again.

J/L forever!! I wanted to do justice to the ordeal between Lily and Severus without making it anything more than it ever was in reality - a friendship. I wanted to bring peace to Severus, to let him finally accept that she is with James and that's not a bad thing. It took him ages to figure that out, but I'm happy that he's going to be moving forward in his own life now.

The Clock is not as wonderful as it's made out to be! Just when it seems like a quaint little village, I like to drop in reminders that this is more than just a place of death - it's a place that doesn't let you escape death. It does things to the people who live there.

Thank you for reading and reviewing!
