JAMI! I am here. There was no way I could keep away from this story for much longer :D

First of all let me tell you that you nailed the beginning. The description of the Potters's home, everything from the way the wind rustles through the leaves, the secluded home set apart from the others created an amazing eerie feeling. I think that set the mood perfectly for the rest of the chapter. Going in full circle, the chapter is opened by the description of James's home, which is away from the others (I think this is a brilliant motif to show that their family is condemned to never fit) and it ends with Lily confessing her parents have been killed. I think the way you set this chapter with it's specific beginning and ending is a stroke of brilliance!

I am very feelsy right now, seeing how much time and effort you put into highlighting the appreciation the Potters have for Sirius. Every time I think about this in the books (they taking him in their home) I am blown away. This is the biggest gesture of love someone can do, especially if you're taking in someone that has a family with not such a great reputation. They knew perfectly well that they risked being shunned, avoided because they were taking care of a son of Black, and yet they didn't care. This speaks volumes of their humanity and their love for their son, because I bet that first and foremost, they did it for James, so that he could be happy.

I can't wait to read more! :D

Author's Response: Roxi!!! I'm so excited to see you!!

I don't usually do much heavy description, but setting scenes is when I get carried away a bit ;). I'm so excited you liked it at the start of this. I had a lot of fun sort of writing from the outside in.

I absolutely agree with you about the Potters taking Sirius in and what a big deal it is. That's one of the main reason I protest so much to the idea of him using girls left and right and not caring, because Sirius has seen first hand what it's like to not be cared about and discarded, and then what it's like to be welcomed into someone's life. I'm sure he flirted plenty, but the idea of him just walking out of girls rooms all hours of the night and not batting an eye when he break their heart has never sat well with me. Look at the love he was shown by the Potters. He's not going to disgrace them by treating other humans like toys. Sorry, got into a bit of a rant there, hahahaha!

I'm so, so, so excited you liked this first chapter ♥ I always get so nervous when someone new starts reading. If feel like I'm getting ready for the first day of school with all the, 'oh will my teacher like me will everyone like me?' feelings, haha!

Okay, I'm making no sense, but thank you so much for this amazing review ♥ reading and responding to it has put a huge smile on my face!
