My review from the Review Tag!

This is a very well written dark piece. Usually, I find myself cringing at the attempts of "dark angst" but this was a pleasant surprise.

I thought this would be an exchange of letters between Sirius and Harry (I tend not to read the summaries XD), but the plot ended up being much more original than I had thought.

The ending was very satisfactory - I rarely see fanfictions where Sirius's father ends up loving his son, and it was a nice change from the norm.

The only suggestion I have for you is to expand slightly on the letters (at least the first few before he became slightly insane), and remove some of the profanity. I found it slightly awkward that Sirius would waste his one letter per year on something so crude and short.

Other than that, I thought this was a great one-shot, and I especially loved the ending!

Author's Response: Hehe my summary wasn't much of a 'summary' to what would happen in the story anyway, so you got away with not reading the summary! :P

I wanted to expand on the letters a lot, but there was some site rule about letters not taking up more than 1/3 of the story so I had to confine them so I could fit them in. And the reason why some of them were very short, especially towards the end was that I saw his sanity and his hope deteriorating, hence the more brusque and crude letters he wrote.

Thank you lots!!!
