I actually saw this banner as I randomly looked through the finished requests for banners last week, and I made a mental note that I should check your story out. So this was just perfect!
I thought I could recognize the lyrics, of course it's Coldplay. They're wonderful, and I loved how you wrote the few lines in between the sections.
Your story is so beautifully written, I found myself kind of rooting for Sirius. "You can do it!" Kind of stupid, since we all know he gets out, hehe.
I liked how he counted the days since they died, how he reminded himself constantly that he was innocent, he had to win and that he'd get Peter one day. I've always wondered what it was like in Azkaban for him, this story gives a perfect example of it.
This line... it gave me the chills.
The person next to him doesn't scream anymore. He's been silenced long ago. The body disappearing was a big enough sign that the final silencing for all of them would come one day.
It was so scary, I could almost imagine the body. Not good. But you wrote it so brilliantly, like that's how it is in Azkaban, you know.
And this line too:
He really should have been a Slytherin, Sirius thinks, instead of masquerading as someone brave.
How he thought of Peter was so well-written, he really should have been a Slytherin and not a Gryffindor.
Anyway, it's getting late and I really need to go to bed. It was fun reviewswapping all these stories.
I loved this story.
Author's Response: Hi Avi!
Yeah I do that a lot too, so snap! Whoo for Coldplay too, I just heard the song and was like, well I guess it's becoming a songfic as it just went with it so well.
Hehe, it's fine, I was doing it too, because he is such a helpless person at times he really needs it. Yes, I thought he needed something to keep his mind focused on and to keep him sane so that's how it came into it. I know, I was surprised by how few stories actually write about him in there which is odd given what a major character he is.
I'm sorry, here have some candyfloss and unicorns and hopefully that will five you happier thoughts! Azkaban is just such a horrible place, it means so much that you think I managed to capture it.
I know, because now I think about it really does make sense giving how cunning he had to be, and ambitious by seeking to protect himself. Gah, I hate Peter, but I'll stop here before it becomes a full-scale rant.
Thank you so, so much for this amazing review it's still making me smile!
