This just kills me, the pouring rain, Chloe's pain. Sirius' interest the way she says "I could never be so brave". You just know these words have spoken to Sirius and made him really see her for the first time. I can imagine this scene so well the colour in her cheeks from that raw honesty. It's all so electric and deep. Poison by Brent Faiyaz is the song I'm listening to right now and it fits your words so well there's even rain in the back ground. You are a gifted writer I don't understand how you don't have more reviews. I'm blessed to have come across this today when I really needed good words to remind me of the joys of life. Can't wait to read more

Author's Response: Hey there! Thank you for leaving such a thoughtful review.

It's funny, this chapter has 100+ more reads than those before and right after it, so it seems people have come back to read the scene more than once. Pivotal moments in the Marauders' history are important to canon but I've tried not to make them the primary focus of this story, because I want to explore the things we don't already know, but this scene just had to happen. I would imagine that Sirius's attention-seeking personality, plus his trying to act casual and sarcastic about it all, is why he decided to open up to Chloe in the first place. She really just happened to be there at the right time--no doubt he would have told just about anyone as a coping mechanism. But you're right, he does really see her for the first time because of her response.

I listened to that song and you're right, it's pretty perfect for this scene! If you're looking for other tunes to listen to while reading this, I listened to a lot of Slowdive, the Moonlight OST, and Angel Olsen while writing this story!

I hope you are doing well and that this story did indeed remind you of the joys of life. Thank you so much for checking out Periphery ♥
