Wow. This is such a lovely one-shot, dear!

I've never read a story about the night Sirius ran away from home, so this was a very original idea! And I like the scene between Sirius and Regulus! You can tell Regulus doesn't like what Sirius does/thinks, but they're still cordial to one another. They're still brothers, after all!

Honestly, as Sirius was dragging his trunk through the streets of London, he reminded me of Harry when he ran away from home after blowing up Aunt Marge. It's nice to see how much the two of them had in common!

I really loved how you tied in Sirius' certainty about his decision with the two, really nice muggles. And I had a feeling that the old man in the truck was the owner of that bike!! I couldn't help but smile when I read that; he was certainly very nice to someone who'd just lifted something from him! In Sirius' defense, though, it didn't seem that he used it much anymore... :P

The ending was great, too. I really loved how Sirius said he knew he was at home when he saw James' smiling face, and it was nice to see how he came to be in possession of the bike as well!

Great job!

Author's Response: Awww! Thanks for the review. I have always considered how Sirius and Regulus would interact towards each other and just could not think that they would be anything but brotherly. At least not until Regulus officially joins the DE. But even then I just imagine Sirius to be more sad for him for allowing himself to be brainwashed by their parents than anything else.

I am glad you picked up on the bike belonging to the old man. I wasn't sure if that would come across when read so I was glad for it!!

Thanks so much!
