Hi there! What a creative idea. I've always wondered what the Portraits are like. If they do feel things, like tired, what they're existence is like, and how the actually work. One of those mysteries JKR just never got around to solving..

I've never really thought much about Phineas, but this ties in perfectly to what we've witnessed in his books. His obvious pride and distaste for doing anything helpful, being on the level of a servant almost. The arguments between him and his portraits were also amusing, and I have to say I think listening in on them all chat together would be a blast.

I think the inclusion of Sirius and Phineas's thoughts regarding there similarities was also a creative and entertaining idea. Poor Sirius pouting all alone in that house :(.

This was a really enjoyable one shot, but I did wish there was a little more explaining when it comes to being a portrait. Just things like how exactly he travels, does he ever feel anything? Like when the other portrait comes in, could he actually touch them? But this is all just because I'm a curious person :P. Obviously this story wasn't designed for you to make up all of these details, so I'm just being greedy over here ;)

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks for reading & reviewing!

Yep, I had always wondered about the portraits too, and this challenge gave me a chance to explore my own little musings :)

I am glad you think that the Phineas in my story ties well with the one in the books, and that you found the arguments with other portraits amusing, and that you liked the whole Sirius & Phineas parallel.

Haha I never really thought about those details, since this was mostly about Phineas' point of view, and I doubt he'd think of how he feels when he travels or when other portraits come in, etc.

Anyway, thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed this!
