Hola from the review tag!

I've never read a story about Phineas Nigellus Black before, simply because he annoyed me to no end in the book. However, I think you have done a commendable job here!

I really loved the way you described him! His personality became evident in degrees, starting out just like I remember him and becoming something far more complicated and interesting. Whilst it hasn't convinced me to like the character, I think you've achieved something far greater here, by making me think harder and more critically about him - not just what he did, but how he did it, and why.

By weaving such a personality for Phineas, I think the Black Family link with Sirius was very well done. We all know Sirius didn't enjoy being stuck, but the way you described his "incarceration" through the thoughts of Phineas, really highlighted to me that Sirius was running away from a part of himself all his life, and that was part of the reason why he was so miserable, stuck as he was.

Peeves' story was just inspired, in my opinion, and raised interesting and complex questions about what one was and what one wanted to be, and how, when given the chance, they achieved their perceived goals.

Overall, a wonderful story!

Author's Response: Hey! Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Haha, I always found Phineas to be amusing rather than annoying so took up a chance to write him!

I am glad you liked how I described him, my main aim wasnt for you to like him, it was just to give you an insight into him, so I am glad I achieved that in a way.

I always ponder over Sirius' "incarceration" in OoTP so I liked to link it here, and glad you liked it :)

Wow, that was very well said! I added Peeves' story on a whim so good to know it gave you something to think about.

Thanks!
