"If only he'd left it at that." That seems ominous. :(

I love how sweet and relaxed they are together. It's very natural and I wish there relationship had been so simple in their teenaged years. Maybe things wouldn't seem so difficult now.

Though it made me sad that she became panicked about eating, I'm glad she tried on her own. She's slowly getting better, I think, and that makes me pleased.

I love how Sirius is involving himself in the Order as much as he can, trying to keep busy so he doesn't get restless because he can't walk around freely like everyone else. I was as surprised as Lucy when he asked her to move in. I didn't expect her to say yes, I knew how much she relied on her normal, Muggle life to keep some semblance of sanity. I guess I just never realized how much of her past life she gave up. I love that they have that conflict. That Lucy can so easily give up magic and live the life of a Muggle, trying to remain unaffected by war, and Sirius loves it too much to give up. I don't know. Lucy's self-imposed exile kind of makes me think that Sirius wasn't the only one imprisoned the last twelve years. Just because Lucy didn't spend it behind bars doesn't mean she isn't living in her own prison.

I hope they work things out. It was nice, with Lucy and Snape, because I feel like Sirius and Lucy were poison for one another as teenagers. But they've obviously matured and I'd like for them both to be happy. :)

Author's Response: I think I enjoyed writing the happy moments even more than the angsty, conflict-filled ones. They don't seem as interesting on the surface, but it's a good reflection of what might have been if so many things had been different.

They are definitely opposed to each other on the subject of magic, which was the main conflict in this chapter. They do each live in a prison, Sirius because of his supposed crimes and Lucy by her own decision. As a result, it's understandably difficult for them to come together on a truly permanent basis.

I'm glad you want them to be happy. Part of me does, too, and I'm glad to have generated some sympathy for them with readers :)

Thanks!

Amanda
