-insert obnoxious squee here-
I absolutely adored it, Jess. :)
That song is just made of awesome, and so is this story.
I love the way you've fit the story around the song, it was as if Sirius actually did write it.
Oh, and I just read the reviews below me and I am over the moon, wearing a goofy smile. But you're right, who could say no to Sirius Black? D:
(:Author's Response: hmm, who could this be??? I don't know, JORDAN maybe? thanks for the review, and saying my story is made of awesome. SIRIUS!

Aw! Thats was so sweet! I love the song Hey There Delilah.It fits well with this.10/10Author's Response: thanks so much!!! Report Review
What did she say!!!??? Ahh! Oh well. At least the sequels out. Yay! The song was cute, I'm sorry that Sirius got sent to Azkaban and they didn't have much time together out of school. The review'll be longer on the sequel. 9/10 (Minus one for the evil cliffie.)Author's Response: she said yes!! wouldn't you??? thanks for reviewing. Report Review
You sound a lot like me! I've stayed up like a million times reading(not only Harry Potter but other books) I don't have internet access in my home (or I'd be reading 24/7) or at least I'd be reading whenever I was home. I've gotten in trouble countless times for staying up at night and I just do it again the next night! (I love to read books, although there have been several I've attempted that I just absolutely hated. ) Great story! I'm so glad I found your page. 10/10 again.
I know it's none of my business and you don't have to answer if you'd rather not but how old are you?Author's Response: yes, I stay up way too late, I can be a bit hyperactive at night. I don't mind answering, I'm 15. I get in trouble too, but oh well. I do it again too! thanks so much for the awesome reviews!! Report Review

I have mixed feelings about this. It seems a little corny. But i like it cos I love the song. I love all Plain White T's songs lol. You should write a songfic for our time now...Author's Response: thanks, and i might write a songfic for it. Report Review
Aw, this was cute! :) It made me smile.. which I needed ;) And that song used to be my favourite song, but eventually I had heard it so many times that I got sick of it! :P lol. I'm not sick of this story, though, cause it was great. And I love to picture Sirius with his guitar! :)Author's Response: thanks so much!!!!!! i'm glad you smiled, it makes me happy! ya, the song got a bit old... Report Review
Oh, this story was so sweet! I like how you made the song symbolic to the relationship and Sirius the singer. This was a really good story. Did you nd up doing a prequel/sequel because I would love to know what happens! 123456789/10! That was brilliant!
~HermionesclassAuthor's Response: thanks so much for the awesome review!!!!! the sequel is up and it's called endless summer! the sequel to the sequel just got validated and it's called innocence! 10/10 for your review!! Report Review
I never used to like song fics but now I do. I think you wrote the story really well. Keep up the good work.Author's Response: thanks and songfics are my favorite thing to write when i have writers block because they get me writing again and i can usually think of a plot fast. Report Review
well you *hinted*when you when you reviewed me that you have a story called hey there delilah so i thought... that i would read it so here i am and it is absolutely brilliant. 10/10Author's Response: thanks. it's always nice to wake up to new reviews! 10/10! yippee! thanks again! Report Review

I loved it sooo much! That is actually how i would like my dream guy to propose to me...Awesome job for like, 5 in the morning! Hey There Delilah is actually my favorite song, so that just made it better. I think I might want to write a song fic now, lol!Author's Response: song fics rule! anyways yea i dodn't really like the story but the song is amazing. Report Review
cute. very fluffy but it's really good! i love this song too!!
10/10!!!Author's Response: thanks. 10/10! do you think i deserve that? Report Review
Heh, that was a sweet one-shot. I have to admit, it does show that you wrote it while sleep deprived!
It's probably the last thing you want to hear but its very VERY out of character for Sirius but I guess you kinda had to add those bits in to fit in with the song. It may have worked better with another character, but it's still a sweet concept.
Most of the dialogue was quite good, but the last two pieces of dialogue were just... well a bit ridiculous. Not what they said, but how they said it, I mean how often do you hear people strining off comments about something someone said like that? It's the kind of thing you do in text form, like this! I think she should have just commented on the part of the song that she felt the strongest about. Same with Sirius' piece at the end. He could have interrupted her even, in the middle of each of her questions, so he could reply. It's kinda hard to explain, really but it just doesnt seem natural. I'll stop ranting about it now, sorry >.<
One other thing, you can't be too physically descriptive in a fic like this but what you could have done was described her emotions, what she was thinking and such. Could even have described how Sirius was singing and playing, the tone of his voice, etc. It's kinda hard to paint a picture of the scene, and the best way to do that in this case is through sound I'd say.
On a good note[!], I thought you incorperated the song well into the story. It's a real 'aw!' fic =P Nice job, I liked reading it.Author's Response: yeha it was supposed to be short and sweet, but the follow up story isn't as sweet. yeah after i wrote it i didn't like it, but i didn't feel like changing it. Report Review
aw this was really sweet. :) i love that song too. ^-^
i really liked it although i didn't really get why lily and james came into the compartment.
good job! you should write more.
w.Author's Response: umm, looking for/ checking up on Sirius and Delilah? i jsut wanted them in there some where! lol! i am writing more! Report Review
Oh My God! I love this song too! And so does my mom! Haha. And so does one of my friends! We sang the verses that we knew (not many back then) when we were playing "War", the card game! Man, it took me like 3 days to read the 7th book! I got it at midnight (4 hours at Borders w/ my friend from above) and then I was busy that whole freakin' weekend. So not fair. I love Starbucks! Caffeine, don't get me started on caffeiene! Haha, poor Remus, but Pete's ok. Ha. Awesome story, totally awesome. AND WHAT DID DELILAH SAY?!?!?!@?!?! And thanks FOR READING TWO OF MY STORIES AND LEAVING STUPENDOUSLY AWESOME REVIEWS before I read yours. Merci Beacoup. And I have no idea why this review is so long, maybe because I missed my computer after 2 days and want to also drown out the video games, the noisy noodle eating, and complaining around me. Peace!Author's Response: again, thanks for the favorited author thing, you're the first one ot do it. i love the song too, there's gonna be a sequel to the song ecndless summer, and she, of course, said yes. Report Review
