Naughty author. Naughty ;(!!!

Okay. You seriously just wrap my emotions around your little finger with this. You know that, right?

Sometimes I forget how much I hate Peter until I remember everything he did. And I just want to walk him into the Black Lake where some creatures can munch on him for dinner.

The conversation between Sirius and William (thank you!) was so perfect and sad all together. James trying to stay awake, thinking that if he wills his dad to keep living then it will happen, because like Sirius points out... it's James. And James can get whatever he wants if he tries hard enough.

And then the comment about James having a brother since he was 11. Bah. Bah Bahhh ;(. It's not fair. None of what happened to them is fair and they absolutely didn't deserve it. Deep breath.

I just have to keep remembering how much better it is that William died because he was old and it was his time. It wasn't because of Voldemort or the war or anything. But James and Lily should have had the chance to make a huge flock of children and tell them all about their grandparents one day. And they didn't ;(. And Sirius never got to learn what an awesome Uncle he would be until a billion years later and even then he just has a few short years with his god son :(.

Sirius didn't even realize it first what Peter did! He was trying to help, and he *could* have fought it. He would have gotten trouble for admitting it, but he could have showed them that he was an Animagus and they all were and he could have fought it. Dumbledore could have helped, they could have extracted the memory from Sirius where he tells Lily and James to make Peter their secret keeper. But that's it-- isn't it? He told them to do it, and it got them killed. In his head he as good cast the curse. But this is where, even though we love him so much, his faults really show. Harry needed someone. He needed Sirius. But Sirius accepts his fate without even trying because it all kills his heart too much, he doesn't think about what he needs to do. And then it's too late and he's in Azkaban ;(.

Bahhh. This is such a beautiful, heart breaking story so far. Thank you so much for giving this amazing man a story he deserves ♥

Author's Response: I'm naughty?! Teehee. Sorry. But not really sorry.

That's the thing! Peter! I really hate him. I find writing young Peter very hard, so... I didn't do it much. Coward's way out, ironically :P

I liked William. Wasn't he sweet? I really wanted to show a moment where we see the parent to Harry's parents (James, Lily *and* Sirius). James reminds me a little of Harry in his utter determination and grit, although it springs from different quarters - James's from being used to having his own way, Harry's from never having his own way and being determined to make his world, and that of his friends, a better place.

You'll get to see Sirius being an awesome uncle to little Harry in chapter 4 ;) But then they do suffer an awfully long separation... only to spend the briefest time together before Sirius dies. Oh God, it's so sad! But you've just got to embrace the happy side of it where you can. There was so much LOVE in Sirius's life, thanks to the Potters, and that's what makes the loss of it so tragic.

I feel he deserves his own story, too, and I'm touched that you think I've done a good job of it. This story is by no means comprehensive, as I've had to miss out big chunks of his life... but I guess that leaves them open to write at another time!

Hm, is it possible that we have thought along the same lines? The final chapter covers a fair bit of your final paragraph! Heehee.

Thank you for your lovely review :) I'm so glad you're enjoying Skywards. Oh, and thanks for dragging Dan over this way too! :D
