Review #1, by Freda_and_Georgina Alphard Black

19th May 2014:
I LOVE THIS GUY!! So little is known about him, but you took those few known facts and put a rich character behind it; and also put in a little insight on the character of Sirius' mother too. I did not expect to see muggleborn toleration with him too, that was neat!

I loved the opening where Alphard is calmly writing his will while his sister chews out his favorite nephew. I also really like how you had Alphard describe the difference between the Sirius he sees, and the happy Sirius we're used to seeing, which Al's only seen in a picture. You can tell that the bond between them is really deep, even though that is never said outright.

It blew me away! Great job!

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed his character! Yes, I was actually happy that I got him for the Black Family Challenge b/c there were a couple of facts (some didn't have any other than mention of a name) and I still had so much room to work with. I made him muggleborn tolerate b/c if he wasn't he would have probably hated Sirius too, but I still wanted to maintain Slytherin pride.
BUT anyway THANKS SO SO MUCH =D for R&R!

Hi there, it's ElysiumJayne here. Firstly, I want to thank you for entering my challenge. I hope you had fun writing this piece!

As for the actual story, I love it, really I do. I was really interested to see where you would take Alphard, because there is really very little known about him at all. I really like what you've done.

I loved reading from Alphard's point of view. I think the last few lines were incredibly wonderful, that very last one in particular. I think it perfectly sums up how many of the disowned Blacks would feel, so well done!

Thanks again for taking part in my challenge!

x Ely

Author's Response: I certainly did! But Thank you for posting this challenge!
I'm glad you like it! Yes, I had to wiki him to understand his character and there isn't much about him, but I think he obviously played such an important role in Sirius' life.

Thanks for the review ! =DD

Review #3, by AngelEyez3954 Alphard Black

Wow! I really like this story. Alphard is such an interesting minor character, and you do a really great job of bringing him to life. Usually when I read Marauder stories, Sirius' running away is portrayed as the result of an argument with his parents, but I LOVE the way you changed it up and had Alphard "persuade" him.

I was a bit surprised that Walburga didn't just blast Alphard right off the tapestry as soon as she had blasted Sirius off. She doesn't give the impression of someone who gives a second chance to get things right.

Great job! This was a very entertaining story, and I really liked it!

For the Huffleclaw-Ravenpuff Eggstravaganza!

Author's Response: Yeah, people forget Sirius did have sort of support system in his house even though it was not enough for him to stay.

I thought about it too. I could say it was out of respect b/c that is her brother and people don't really have control over siblings (while she did with her son). Anyway thanks. Glad you liked it. And mucho thank yous for the review =D.

Review #4, by adele_weasley Alphard Black

It was heartbreaking and still so beautiful. I never thought I would ever read a fanfic about good ol' Alphard and like it so much. Great job!

Author's Response: I glad you think so! Yes, I didn't know about Alphard until I entered the challenge. There are so many beautiful Black family members that are overlooked. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks so much for the review !
