REVIEW TAG!

OH. EM. GEE.

This piece has freaked me out so much! I am literally sitting here with actual goose bumps on my actual skin. This was so fantastically spooky! I loved it!

The short length was simply perfect for the story. There is something seriously creepy that a "priceless" Black family heirloom can evoke such nasty feelings in a person. I think you've spoken volumes about what the House of Black really is - and only in like, the last three lines. Fantastic!

I said this in the review I left on the last chapter of Post Scriptum, but I simply adore the way you show Sirius leaving his family home. It's so different to every other aspect of him and his life - he's such a drama queen - but it makes a sort of poetic sense that one of the biggest decisions of his life was taken with careful planning and cold and quiet precision. It adds to the spooky nature of the piece overall, I think, because it's kind of creepy seeing Sirius act in this way.

Lovely piece! I adore everything that you write, but so far, I think this is one of my all-time favourites! I always say something like "awesome stuff" but it feels really weird because you write so well, and I just... ugh. My feels are all over the place! Still - awesome stuff!

Author's Response: Hey there :)

I'm so glad this was spooky! I had a tight word limit and was worried that maybe I wasn't able to convey the creepy factor all that well, but I had hoped the imagery would do the trick. I also love that you tied the desk back to the generally unsettling feel of the Black household and family.

Interesting perspective on Sirius. I agree that you know he's up to something when he suddenly falls quiet. I felt like he would be tired of bearing the brunt of so much negative energy from his parents and would want to escape quickly in the night so as to just be free from all of it, his old life.

Thanks so much for your kind review!
