Sirius and Harry are back together!!! :-) :-) :-)
Thank Merlin he didn't go to the Malfoys or Mrs. Pettigrew. *shudder*
I loved Sirius in this chapter. The fact that they are bothered with his insight into the Wizarding law is funny. They trained him, after all. Sirius was really really happy to be with Harry, and equally bad-ass with the others when Harry passed out. Harry's hearing Lily's last words, it's heartbreaking.
And then there's the whole thing with Marlene. She did try to kill Sirius, he's completely justified in his behaviour and she shouldn't expect any less. I might feel sorry for Marlene later, but right now, I'm on Sirius's side - show her what you've got, Padfoot!!
Snape was weird in this chapter. What was that about full moon? - was that just rubbing salt in wounds or a Sirius question? ;-)
I like that Dora is worried about Remus, it's cute. :-)
For a moment with Greyback, I thought the guy he was describing was Melvin, because of the gold pocket watch thing. But then it just got muddled up with the lion-snake bit. Still can't figure out who Smoky is.
The entire paragraph about how Sirius was humiliating the Ministry was hilarious, with all the 'then's. It was like an unending list of all the stuff he's done. :-D
Umbridge!! The last person I'd ever expect here! She's insane! She's the one who should be in the white padded cell!! Someone put her in there!!
As always, loved the chapter, hated the wait, so if you post earlier, it would be great! *Rhyme unintentional:-P *
Author's Response: They are indeed! :D Haha, yes, that would have been unfortunate... :P
So did I - he was so much fun to write. :) I think it's more that they know they can't count on his ignorance to let them get away with things, and it's funny for Sirius, but must be incredibly frustrating for everyone else. :P Exactly - they're fighting something that they helped create. :P Haha, yes, there was a bit of defensive/protective Sirius there. :) I know. :(
He is justified - I don't think he's being unreasonable at all. I feel a bit sorry for her now, but she also deserves it, I think. :S Haha. :P
He was a bit - this little conversation with Remus will probably make more sense in two chapters' time - but yes, it is a serious question. :P Haha, yes, Dora's being sweet as usual. :)
Greyback was describing Melvin - your initial impression was right. The 'pocket watch' was his Sidekick, and he was trying to contact Finch. :S The snake-lion bit was a bit confusing; Greyback though that Melvin was brave, and therefore that he was a Gryffindor, but Smoky corrects him and says that Melvin was in Slytherin. :) Haha, Smoky's identity will be revealed eventually, I'm just not sure when. :P
I had a lot of fun writing that part - it was funny to look at from a 'Ministry' perspective. :P Yes, Umbridge is always popping up at the most inconvenient moments. :S Not insane - power-hungry. But yes, a cell would suit her nicely, I think. :P
Yay! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D Haha, the next chapter will be up on Sunday - I've got exams coming up, which means my writing time is reduced. Once they're over, though, I'll see about a few early updates. :) Haha. :P
Thank you so much for the review!
