Review:MuNition says:
Not quite capturing the wartime state of mind here. The word "love" wouldn't have entered Sirius's mind at all. During war, the thought is that the polar opposite of death and destruction is sex, the ultimate celebration of life. The emotional side of it gets pushed aside to when you're on your huge amounts of spare time waiting while it's someone else's shift to end so you can go back to patrol (and hence, falling in love becomes extremely intense under those conditions - one letter can mean more than an entire night of romance).

So far, enjoyable, though Sirius is surprisingly coy about this. Combat soldiers on duty learn that things like guilt, shame, lack of confidence, and basically every non-primal morality gets it's volume turned down quite a bit. I'd expect him to be *far* more forward, perhaps awkward as hinted by his coyness, but he's definitely not the type for subtle. As for Severus's "love" life, I'd love a scene of him and his Death Eater buddies in a seedy pub-crawl including awkward scenes in toilets, brawls, and the such. Or perhaps more *refined* celebrations involving somewhat darker tastes. The Death Eaters as an organization seems conductive to either scenario.

So far, so good. I'm really hoping to delve deeper into the full spectrum of people in the DEs (Bellatrix on one side, people like Snape/Regulus/etc on the other).

Author's Response: Well, again, I was still in high school when I wrote this -- and also, the characters are still pretty much teenagers themselves at this point in the story. Was it real love? Doubtful.

I don't know if you ever reviewed more (it's been a while and I have a lot to respond to), but thanks for reviewing up to this point. Sorry it took so long to get back to you.
