Review #1, by Pretense Of Perfection One

8th July 2014:

I totally want to start by saying that I'm firmly in the James/Lily camp, and nothing will ever sway that. But this story was beautifully done, and I really enjoyed it.

I think one of my favorite parts was how Lily managed to somehow transfer her feelings about Sirius and what had happened between them to a cup of coffee. As humans, I think we tend to do this without realizing it, and associate certain things with certain people. It's really what made the story for me, and I just loved her fixation on it.

I think you did a wonderful job of accurately capturing the torment and remorse she must feel after what happened, without going overboard on it. I was really able to relate to this, and you made it so believable that I instantly took a liking to it.

You managed to stay true to both Sirius and Lily's character, which is a feat in and of itself, especially considering the circumstances between them.

I didn't notice any spelling or grammar errors, and the plot and pace were executed superbly. Amazing job.

I love the image of "winching at the sound of my chair scraping on the tiles." I don't know why, but I do. And I also know that it's an abrupt way to start a review, but it just stuck with me so much that I had to point it out before I forgot!

Anyway, this was lovely. I've been saying that a lot lately, "lovely," but it's true. Something about your word choice is just intoxicating, and it completely draws the reader in until they've finished.

You're little lines between paragraphs do an excellent job of jarring the reader. And I know that sounds like a bad thing, but it's not! It really interrupts the flow in a gorgeous way, and helps keep the story paced evenly. It's really nice, is what I'm trying to say. Really nice. :)

Anyway, again, this was lovely.

I read this story because your banner is just absolutely fabulous and boy am I glad that I read this. You wrote this great. The only complain I have is that you canís see in the story who it is about you wrote in your summary who it is about but you just canít see that in your story. I also loved the way you began. The began I think is my favourite in the whole story!

Author's Response: Isn't that banner fabulous? The artists over at TDA are absolute geniuses. So all credit for that goes to the incredible cherryberry. And thank you! I actually did it that way on purpose - I like a little anonymity in a story. But thank you very much! :D So happy to hear you enjoyed it!

Review #8, by Sirius Blacks lover One

6th June 2010:
This is very real in descriptions, but vague in the plot. Nice style:)

Author's Response: Yeah, it was rather supposed to be vague in plot, since I did it for a challenge that was only supposed to have 500 words. Thank you though! :D

Review #9, by Myriad One

2nd June 2010:
You don't need to be worried about your areas of concern. This is entirely believable and the length was perfect for it. In fact if you'd made it any longer I'd have been concerned.

This is really good. The type of story that feels like it could be happening anywhere.

I love your opening lines. Very powerful. The whole thing is captivating really.

You have tremendous presence in this story. Very strong voice, great pacing. It flowed really well. There wasn't anything that, while reading, I thought stood out in a bad way.

The only small suggestion I can make is that you identify the narrator and who she slept with. You say in the pairing information that it's Lily and Sirius, but no where in the story do we see that. Although honestly this is brilliant just the way it is.

Wow. Metaphorical. I like it. It's like a snippet of a person's thoughts.

Author's Response: Thank you very much! That's exactly what I was going for, so I'm glad to hear that I pulled it off okay. :) Thanks again!
