Poor Beth! Poor Sirius!

I think the reason Sirius really blew up at Beth was because all of his plans to have her as a 'companion' have just been shot into tiny pieces. He feels wounded because she would rather be with Snape than him and it's just hard for him to accept. Why would she choose someone who poses so much threat to her when she has him who has always been there right under her nose?

He'll regret what he said and the way he was with her.

And then there's Beth. Losing Sirius as a friend (if that happens) will really hit her hard. The fact that she might have to choose between him and Sev is going to be something she will HATE thinking about. And I know she isn't going to stop seeing Sev. Which worries me because I don't want her and Sirius to fall out.

I don't want Sirius to feel alone. And I don't want Beth to start feeling alone because the more Sev gets embroiled in being a Death Eater he might have to cut down seeing Beth and then she won't have either of them.

*flails* This chapter gave me so many feels. I just want everyone to be happy.

Author's Response: That's exactly why Sirius blew up at Beth -- how awesome that you picked up on that so well! :) He's mad at himself, of course, for trying to force both him and her into this mode of thinking that just didn't fit either of them. And now he's afraid that he's going to lose his other best friend, too, just like he lost James to Lily. I can't pretend to fully understand Beth's choices -- she's just had this /fascination/ with Severus for so long, you know?

Oh, what a tangled web we weave.

And of course there is Beth, because Sirius and James -- all the boys -- they keep her grounded at this really pretty rocky time in her life. They're the constants in a stream of changing variables, and if Sirius is gone, the whole foundation might crack. She doesn't see things the way Sirius does, of course; she doesn't see it as having to choose between Sirius and Severus, because they are different relationships in her eyes.

Phew. I think I enjoy talking about, and picking apart, and analyzing this story way too much. But it's great that I get such astute reviewers on it, too, because then it makes me examine my OWN writing, and why I wrote what I did. And that's seriously so fantastic, you know? I love this storyline, and I love writing it, and I love getting to know it more and more as time goes on.

I really am going to stop now! ♥ I just want everyone to be happy, too. And I can't wait for you to read on to see if we both get what we want! Thank you for this review! :)
