Sarah! Sarah. I started doing running review style, but I just couldn't. I had to keep reading. Arhghg. I don't even know where to start.

Deep breath.

Deep breath.


Okay. Now that that's out...

I secretly read this when you first told me it was up. But I still couldn't stop and review during because it's just so intoxicating... I want to cry and smile at the same time.

The way you started, with our first few glimpses into Azkaban.. then taking us over to his sorting was so powerful. Taking something from such a terrible, heart breaking period in his life then showing us how he really started. How he went from Sirius Black, eldest Black son, to a blood traitor more loved than nearly anyone.

The way you gave us our first look at the group and Lily! Gah. I just want to cry and hug you at the same time. Please?? Can I?? It shouldn't have happened to any of them :(. They should be fifty years old, still laughing together like the first time.

I loved the way that Sirius recognized arrogance in James and understood he was from the same kind of privilege, but the difference stuck out so much when he looked up and realized there wasn't anything but laughter in his eyes.

And the Marauding mothers!!! Oh my gosh. You made sure that you kept me from balling my eyes out with adding just enough amazingly sweet/funny perfect moments. I'd love to see Olivia kick Mrs. know what. And 'I think they're playing Mrs. Potter vs Mrs. Black' hahaha. You have such an amazingly creative mind!

And now you brought me back :(. And we're here again but we shouldn't be because even Sirius shouldn't be here. He shouldn't only see Lily and James like this. He should be sitting down to dinner with them and Harry, not trying to hold his soul together in the depths of Azkaban. The conversation with Fudge is *amazing*... that anxiousness that Fudge felt to get away from him as soon as he realized he was actually enjoying speaking with a *notorious mass murder* it was absolutely amazing.

Detail. Do you have any how perfectly you put everything together in this? The change from Hogwarts moods to Azkaban ones, the imagery the the ability you have to get all of our senses engaged. I don't even know what to do with you, you amazing-ness.

I just wanted to make everything stop in this chapter. I just wanted to stay in Hogwarts where nothing bad can happen to Marauders ;(. But I keep having to remind myself that everything Sirius endured after this is what really shows how strong of a person he is.. and I would have been okay with it if he would have gotten to.. to.. to live :(.

Well. Now you've done it. I'm a big sobby baby. But this is so beautiful and amazing and just took my breath away. The best part is I still get three more chapters of it! I'm going to try and toughen up for the next ones.

You're such a talented writer. I'm so honored that you've taken the time to write all this for me ♥ I don't know what I'd do without you to vent to/laugh with/whine to/RL gossip/talk HP writing/Jack/Ben/Puppies/Jobs.. pretty much just everything.

And it means so much that you've used Belle, Alice's surname, the Animagus change..

Okay. I must go review the next before I get all mush mush again.

Author's Response: Eeek, how to respond? I've just been looking at the review I left you the other day, I'm sorry it's so massive. This one is similarly... large :P But it's so lovely and it sounds like I've accomplished Mission: Jami Sobbing.

I was a bit nervous about the moment we first see James - I didn't want him to come across as Malfoyish. But I'm glad you, like Sirius, can see that he's really not awful. He's just a bit arrogant and privileged.

And you've picked out one of my favourite bits to write! Fudge! Did you spot him turning up again in Chapter 2? :P I think that the conversation with Fudge may be one of the only times in this story that we see Sirius from someone else's point of view. And Sirius is still charismatic, haha!

Writing the 'happy' bits made me want to write more Marauders in the future... but then again, I don't know if I can put myself through the heartache you go through knowing their ultimate fate! :S

I'm sorry this is such a rubbish response, I'm just really glad you like this story (I was so nervous!) and that I made you a big sobby baby, rwahahahahahahaa.
