Review #1, by patronus_charm Chapter 1

19th March 2015:
Hey there, reviewing for the HPFF Fundraiser challenge over at the forums!

Ooh, I really enjoyed this one-shot, because Siriusí time in Azkaban has always been something which has interests me with how he managed to survive in there and how on earth did he plan his escape. I really liked how you started with Fudge as he still represented normality so when he was as Azkaban one could really see the contrast between him and the prison and understand why it was so horrible there. Another thing I really liked was your overall characterisation of him because in that short section I thought you captured the essence of him really well.

Sirius was written really well too. I think it was the use of the italics which really helped because it showed how obsessive and focused he was on figuring out what on earth had happened to his friends and why he was here and Peter wasnít, so we could see his descent into madness really well. I think what worked well was your use of contrast again with the subtle bits of description of Azkaban as it just merged together really well and yeah I thought that was great.

This: ĎA Dementor takes a breath. Something dies.í Was really great as it really showed the barbarity of the place and how death was almost omnipresent and it made me feel for Sirius even more.

The meeting with Fudge was really well written as it was this clash of normality and craziness which I mentioned before, and the two characters played off of one another really well. Again, you showed Siriusís descent into madness really well with the way that news had such a large impact on him.

Great story!

Brilliance! :) I love this look at Sirius, which really is very true to the novels and very cleverly written. Great chapter!

That was an interesting read. The banner is absolutely stunning as well. I think that's what drew me in to read it in the first place. You captured Sirius' feelings perfectly. Good job =]

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked the story and the banner as well. :3 I was hoping that the banner would work (I made it!), and I'm really happy it did. Thanks for the review! You made my day :D
