Hi Kiana :D

I have a strange obsession/fascination with Azkaban so this was right up my street!

First off, I love the structure you've created for the story. The use of the days since James and Lily died as a way to keep track of where on Sirius' timeline the reader is up to in the story was really clever and effective. It helped this flow really well, and I know that's difficult to do in a segmented story, so well done :D The lyrics were fitted in seamlessly too, they worked with the story rather than against it and didn't distract from the flow at all.

I think your characterisation of Sirius is perfect, there's a line in Prisoner of Azkaban about how he survived so long without going mad and he says something about being obsessed with the idea that he was innocent and the way you've written this fits so well with that. I love how his thoughts get more manic and obsessed the more time he's in there too, like the repetition of "I'm innocent" in his second year.

The little glimpse of Bellatrix was excellent, I could picture her so well stalking past his cell. I bet she'd have been furious if she knew he was using her to amuse himself :p

I really really really loved this, Kiana :D

Dee :)

Author's Response: Hi Dee!

Whoo, for that, as I do too!

I'm glad that you liked the structure because I thought if Sirius hadn't counted the days in some way he would have felt incredibly lost given how every bit of humanity is taken from you in there and their death seemed the most fitting way to tie it in. I'm so glad the lyrics worked, because this was my first ever songfic so I was really nervous about whether the lyrics would fit in or not.

Whoo, someone else remembered that line too as that was what got me thinking about his time there and how he managed to stay sort of sane because of that. Ha, I almost wish I did a segment with him halfway through because it would be interesting to see how obsessed he was then.

She probably would have, because anyone being happy is a crime in her world! Thanks for such an amazing review, Dee, and for reviewing it, it was such a nice thing to do!
