Iím here to spread some Christmas cheer, so Merry Christmas Dan!

Sirius had me laughing all the way through! This was one of the few times Iíve read his first person narrative but I loved it as it had me cracking up all the way through. He was just brilliant with his I donít care what people think, Iím going to do it my way. I think my favourite moment was when he saw the bike and he just wanted to ride as that captured the craziness perfectly!

Then the silent voices of his friends in his head were very touching as it all showed how much they meant to him and how they wanted the best for him. My favourite reaction was the one about Moony as it was just great!

I liked how you included background information about his family because it contrasted nicely to the general 15+ this life and world Iím running away. I liked the idea of Andromeda being the cause of Regulus becoming a Death Eater because Iíve never really seen that explore before and Siriusí thoughts about his brother were really lovely!

Sorry this review is short, thereís more Christmas to be spread but I really loved this one-shot and Merry Christmas!

Author's Response: Kiana! Thank you so much, dear! And a Merry Christmas to you as well, albeit a day late.

I had a blast writing Sirius in this. Even when he was being serious -- weak pun not intended -- I had a good time picking apart his loyalties and thoughts about his family and his friends. He is very much the sort to be uncompromising about the way he lives his life, yet he's also very sensitive in a way. Such a complex character!

I've always thought of Moony as being a sort of "in loco parentis" figure to the other three marauders. And I'm sure that Sirius made a big show of acting annoyed about it, yet he secretly liked it. The boy needed some legitimate parental figures in his life.

I had almost as much fun dissecting the highly dysfunctional Black family as I did writing Sirius. They're just too easy to make fun of. And I do think that Sirius cared a lot for Regulus and it probably hurt him a lot when his brother became a Death Eater.

Please do not apologize for the length of your review! It is the thought that counts and I think the thought was lovely. Thank you so much!
