Oh. My. Gosh.

I am *so* happy that you showed us this first section. Seeing what we’ve been through wit Harry from Sirius was just so creative, amazing, bahh.

Okay. Phew. I can do this.

He wanted to see Harry so bad. He wanted to see the product of James and Lily, his godson, and it is so heart breaking that he didn’t just get the last twelve (thirteen) years to spend with him. He should have, and I everything he’s missed, everything Peter took away from him, just hurts so much in this first section.

Half expecting Prong to gallop beside him--- Sarah I’m going to cry. Prongs was galloping beside him! Only a few chapters ago in BTF he was! And now.. now ;(. Bah. But he’s going to get to watch Harry play Quidditch! So it’s okay, and I can toughen up. If Sirius survived all of this, I can too :P.

NO! NO! I wasn’t ready for that one to be over! But I still have one more chapter…

Okay. Let me try and backtrack so I can actually leave a coherent review. Or some of a coherent review.

The entire Quidditch section, oh god. It was written so beautifully and all Sirius could focus on was Harry. Watching him play, and excel, at something that he and James spent hours doing.. getting to live through Harry for just a bit, and willing him to catch the Snitch and be done with it (now Sirius, were we thinking like a concerned parent?? :P). The intensity of thinking though it all with Sirius, then when the Dementors came and Sirius’s regret for coming because he doesn’t know if Harry’s okay but he does know that he found his broom broken. WHY Sarah? Why do you create so many swirly fuzzy pokey feels? And you know I’m a bit on the emotional side today!!!

Your writing is, as always, beautiful in this. Your ability to place imagery in the best place to keep the story flowing and smooth, to give me these vivid pictures that play like the same memories Sirius watched in his Azkaban cell. You. Are. Killing me! And I loved the detail of him throwing the Dumbledore card into the fire.

OH! I almost forgot! We really get a look at his reckless side with his clawing into the portrait and trying to get Peter. He wasn’t trying to hurt anyone, but he risked everything he’d came there for because his need to track down the man who took away his entire family, his life, overcame him and it was such an awesome thing. It was so Sirius.

Did I tell you how amazingly honored I am that you wrote this for me? You have no idea how much it means to me. I want to hug you. ♥ ♥ ♥

Author's Response: Hi! I'm going to reply to my reviews tonight, as my neck isn't so bad. Woohoo!

I really enjoyed writing something we've seen before from a different perspective - and that scene is so underplayed in the film, so I really enjoyed looking at it from another angle!

Ah I'm so glad you think the imagery held up in this chapter! It's so important to me, that the reader has images in their mind as they read my work - as you know! That's why Annie and Cissy had to go ;) I felt really mean having Sirius toss the card into the fire! But I wanted to show him feeling betrayed by the school, by Dumbledore... because it would be too easy for his heart to melt on seeing Harry, I needed him to remain angry and a little vicious, so that he could be the man Harry first meets in the Shack.

Ee, I'm so so glad that you like this story! I really am. Please do hug me. How long are your arms? Mine are quite long, if we stretch really hard maybe we could meet in the Atlantic.
