Hi There.

This was such a well-written and intense story. I can't believe it's only 500 words.

I really like stories about Sirius Black, because he's my favourite character in HP. But that also makes me extremely critical when I read stories that features him in a main role. In this story, however, I thought the portrayal was spot on. You've managed to keep some of the Sirius we know from the books, but then you've also added some traits, and that's good because I think being imprisoned changed him. So he wasn't the same in Hogwarts as he was as an adult. I love how he - even though he doesn't want to be there anymore and can be caught - still looks around in the house. You really see the Gryffindor bravery there, as well as his curiosity - and that's just how imagine him being.

What I loved the most about the story, however, was actually the fact that it could've fitted into the book. We know Sirius cared for his friends, so I don't think it strange that their deaths would be his boggart. It's also believable that he would encounter a boggart in his family home, because - as we know from the books - Molly finds one in Number 12 Grimmauld Place (or at least believes it can be boggart). So the story is actually very true to the books.

I also love the story influences my view on Sirius as a character and the books in general. Because if this had happened, it could explain a lot. We know Molly had a similar boggart, so I'd imagine him understanding her fears. And although they have their disagreements, especially over Harry, I don't really think them that different. They both want to protect those around, and I guess reading your story made me realize just how similar they are.

Wow, I've rambled on for quite some time, haven't I? I'm not even sure if any of it made sense, but as I'm sure you've gathered, I really liked the story. It was brilliant and very well-written. And a really good idea. I loved it!
