Hello again, stopping by from Review Tag!

I really loved your characterization of Sirius here. It's clear that he's been raised to be suspicious of Muggles and it was nice that he learned to discard that so quickly on his journey to James's house. It was nice to see that he wasn't just perfectly innocent, though--he almost ran out on his bill and then he stole the bike from the barn. I liked that, too, because you kept his mischievous attitude and the fact that he's not a perfectly angelic character.

I also liked the beginning of the chapter, where you showed him interacting with Regulus. I've spent a lot of time writing them in one of my novels, Post Scriptum, and I tend to make their relationship really complex. But I liked your take on it, where they sort of interact normally despite the chaos going on around Sirius running away. I guess I would have liked to see a little more in terms of their final exchange when Sirius really left with his bags, but maybe that's a stylistic choice.

Anyway, yeah, this was cool. I liked how you incorporated the theme while going a little deeper in terms of the message the plot actually sends.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review!

This was actually my first attempt at writing anything about the marauder's so I was actually pretty nervous about it! I was really trying to not dive too deeply into the Regulus/Sirius in this story (mainly because I have another story about them brewing in my mind) but also because I guess I didn't think of Sirius leaving as being a goodbye to Regulus. I figure they would probably see each other at school or still communicate in some way despite Sirius leaving. (At least until Regulus makes the choice to join the Death Eaters anyway!)

Glad you liked it!!
