Hey there!

I really enjoyed this chapter - it was great to see a couple of different POV's, which I always find refreshing in a story both when I'm reading and writing. And I was especially happy to see Sirius, who we haven't seen up until now.

First of all, Severus' point of view: for me, you've really nailed the characterization of teenage Snape, which I've got a feeling I've said before, though it becomes more obvious when it's his point of view. As you mentioned, his 'thinking' was super cool to read and then he had an encounter with Lily, to top it off!

And then we had Sirius' point of view. I really enjoyed reading his encounter with Dumbledore - the way you portrayed Dumbledore was excellent, you got him exactly right! And it was definitely nice to see the plot moving ahead a little bit, I'm definitely looking forward to the gang finding out more about the Order of the Phoenix.

Great chapter!

Author's Response: I look back at writing this story, and all the books since it, and the original novel I just finished -- and I wonder how I ever managed to write a whole book from just one POV. :P Writing from more than one just gives books a depth and perspective that would be very hard to otherwise achieve. Kudos to the brilliant authors who actually can do it!

I'm so happy you think I got Snape on point, too, especially because he's one of my all-time favorite characters, and I really want to do him justice. :) At this point in the story, he's still pretty fixated on Lily, and then later -- oh, but you're not there yet! *zips lips*

Dumbledore is somewhat of a tricky character to write, and I'm glad you think I did right by him, too! The Order is a massive part of the next two books, and I'm very excited for you to read more about it there, too. :)

Phew. These responses are getting more unintelligible by the minute, it seems. ♥ I hope you know just how much your lovely words truly do mean to me! ♥
