Review:Toujours Padfoot says:
For a moment there I thought you were going to take this very AU and have Sirius finish off Peter right then and there in the kitchens! I was reading it very quickly, trying to see what would happen next, but stupid Peter got away again. Drat.

This was so lovely but so sad. :( The descriptions of Lily and James's ruined house were so haunting, particularly this line here:

An unfinished letter with Lily's familiar spindly writing was still resting beneath a quill, as if she had just stepped away from it for a while, instead of leaving it there incomplete for eternity.

- :( So depressing, but beautiful. I like how sunlight colored the room gold, and the thick layer of dust, and it got me to thinking that this is actually Harry's house. It's got to be. I wonder if he'll ever fix it up and decide to live there, or if it will be too full of memories that aren't even his own. I hope he does something nice with it, instead of letting it rot there forever as a twisted sort of shrine. If every person who died in either war had their dilapidated house preserved that way, England would be a mess.

I feel so awful for Sirius. I truly think that his life was the worst one in all of Potterverse. Severus might have suffered from unrequited love, but at least he was free and cozy in Hogwarts instead of locked up in Azkaban. And Remus might've been a werewolf, but he was never confined to a childhood home he abhorred. Sirius led a miserable existence from the time he was 21 up until his death, when he was killed by his own cousin of all people. If he didn't have all of the warm memories of what happened prior to going to Azkaban, he never would have lasted. They burned for years, keeping him alive and sane.

But this missing moment one-shot, for a brief moment, gave me hope of Sirius's redemption, his vengeance, the victory he so very much deserved. And what a lovely, bright moment that was. :)

Author's Response: Hi! =)

Peter is one slippery rat for sure. But in the end, it just had to happen that way.

I've been thinking about it too, whether Harry would fix it and live there, or what did happen to that house. Since he doesn't actually remember much of his parents, I could definitely see him fixing the place and making it his home with Ginny and kids.

Ah, poor Sirius. I was so disappointed that JKR didn't give him a chance with happiness with Harry. They'd have been the coolest godson-godfather duo ever. He'd have deserved it.

Thanks again for a lovely review! Happy holidays!
