This was hilarious (why do I always end up saying that?). I can perfectly imagine Sirius dancing and shaking some bloody ferrets around. I would have been humiliated if I was him, but thats Sirius for you. He was probably proud of himself. Hey, a guys gotta have fun somehow, right? Again, I really like the tinier details that come together to make this so real, such as Sirius' remark on CD's and how much he missed (they didnt exist when he went in). I really enjoyed reading this. I realized at the end that it didn't seem to be about anything really in particular, except possibly the mirrors, but even then, THEY weren't a HUGE part in the plot here. I think thats so neat how you could write such an interesting one-shot about... something so small? See what I am saying? I hope you dont take it the wrong way :) I liked the slight hinting at Remus and Tonks (if that was your intention). I also enjoyed Remus' thoughts about things, because it really put a lot into perspective, like when Sirius cried, or when he had to stop to pick up the drink for Sirius. And of course, I liked the small part in Sirius' mind, staring at the picture of himself and James. You should have told me this was up, I'd have been here much sooner :)
Author's Response: Haha, nope, not offended at all- I think you hit the nail on the head- it really was about nothing! I mean, it wasn't, but it was. It was all just an exploration of friendships and characters, but in the end not much happened... I'm really glad you liked it though! It all just started flowing and I got some ideas about things that could have been going on in the background, like contact with the Unspeakables. Mainly Croaker and Bode, the Unspeakables, and how they might be affiliated with the order... after what happened to Bode I wondered about that. And Emmeline- I thought there might be a connection with Snape, even if my suspicions arose from something as simple as her Slytherin-coloured shawl... hehe, see, I'm a complete nutter! I'm really glad you appreciated the hinting I did with Tonks and Remus, too ;) Perhaps I will write more stuff like this, who knows? Oh, and sorry I forgot to give you a shout out when it got posted yesterday- I'm forgetful like that! Thanks for reading, and of course, reviewing!
