|Review:||Courtney Dark says:|
Right now, I really wish I could just plunge myself into the screen of my laptop and become part of Beth's world. I'D GO OUT WITH YOU, SIRIUS! In fact, if I was in this story, everything would be dandy! Sirius and I would be together, and happy, leaving Beth and Severus - everyone wins!
Anyway, I loved this chapter! Mainly because I love Sirius so, so much but also because it was so amazingly written! I absolutely adore reading Beth's inner monologue and thoughts - especially her comments about the boys, and how they hadn't realized that Lily and Marlene and Mary were going shopping for baby things.
Ooh, I loved the tension that came with Remus' entrance - and I love how we are starting to get more and more snippets of canon events that we know of or have been mentioned - such as Peter's betrayal in the last chapter and Voldemort wanting James and Lily on his side, in this chapter. It's making me even more eager to find out what's going to happen next.
Oh Sirius:( I know I already said that, but I can't believe he chose that moment to hold Beth's hand. I'm just really, really loving all these traits of Sirius that your bringing out, traits that we see in him as a grown man, out of Azkaban. The line: 'Patience and perseverance, admittedly some of his least present personality traits, but it could work' especially stuck out to me.
I'm now realizing this review is waffling on about nothing in particular, so I'll just toddle off and read the next chapter.
Author's Response: I felt so bad for Sirius at this point in the book! He's just so lonely -- which I think he really was in canon, too -- and using Beth to help that was a bad set-up from the beginning, but he did it anyway, that lovable man. It was doomed to fail and I think he knew that, even when he was trying to convince himself that Beth could love him in time.
Much more canon comes into these last two books, solely because there was just more available after the Marauders left Hogwarts. :D There's more to come, too, and I'm eager for you to hit those parts with big canon moments! I did try to include them all.
I'm SO glad you think this Sirius reflect the older, canon Sirius, too. That really makes me happy, because that was exactly what I was going for. ♥
I'm sorry it sometimes takes me so long to respond to your reviews! It's nothing against them, of course, as I've said before. :) Thank you for reviewing at all!
