I really like how you portrayed Sirius. He seems a little older than eleven because he's been brought up to be respectable, yet he still continues to remind himself of what his family expect, what his mother says etc. James seems very likeable and it's not surprising Sirius would end up being friends with him as they both seem capable of delivering witty comments and putdowns without becoming unpopular. Great fic.
Author's Response: Oh, thanks, Binka Fudge. I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed it, and that you liked Sirius's portrayal in here. This is just always how I've seen his character as a child, and I'm glad you thought it worked well. And yes, James and Sirius definitely make a nice pair of friends! rn
I like it when James tells Sirius that McGonagal was ready to put out the flames.
Author's Response: I wrote something that got a laugh? Really? *Thinks she's a horrible humour writer* That's great to hear.
I liked that line a lot too, charlie black, and thank you so much for leaving a review.
i think that sirius was very believable! his mom actually seemed kind of nice though, and i thought that he had ALWAYS hated his family and wanted to be in gryffindor.... but anyway good story!!
Author's Response: Thanks, JustLikeHermione77, for the review. I'm glad you liked it.
Yeah, Sirius's character sort of changed in DH in terms of age 11 than from when I'd written this fic, but I'm going to be stubborn and go with my own envision of him. *Ignores several DH moments that'll contradict her belief*
As for his mother, I don't know. I didn't want to portray her as too heartless just yet, just frustrated with some of her son's more ... less than presentable behaviours/appearances.
Thanks again, though!
very good. looking forward to reading more of your writings.
