Review:Jchrissy says:
Oh god. Firm James is my favorite kind. I love when he shows that he is a leader, and him setting Sirius straight in this was just perfect. PERFECT.

But then we get back to the root of it all. James understands they canít stop Sirius from making a decision. He wants to protect Beth just as much as Sirius, but Sirius is still so young (and god you have to just love him for it) and protective that he believes he can protect anyone he loves from anything. And itís just not realistic, but he believes that it should be. I love that, even while his actions were bad, his intentions really were good.

Sirius opening the Marauders map is sort of bitter sweet, isnít it? We get so much of the feeling that he just misses it all in this chapter. Itís so weird to think that just a few short while ago they were still in school, still able to be as normal as possible with the war so close to the outside. I canít wait to read ITB one day, btw.

Anyway, itís so hard to stay angry with Sirius for his actions with so much insight in this chapter.

Heís such a storm. He needs a hug ♥

Thank you for another amazing chapter, mídear ♥

Author's Response: Firm James is my favorite, too! How are we so alike?! :P Oh, I'm so glad you liked him here. And especially coming from someone who wrote such a popular James/Lily -- it really does mean so much.

It's interesting (for me) to think that James and Sirius essentially want the same thing for Beth: For her to be safe, yet happy. And yet both of them at this point in the story have such different ideas about what that means for her. Sirius tends to lean more towards "safe" while James understands the risks she is taking to make her happy. And yet you're right, because Sirius's intentions really WERE good. He just... the actions weren't nearly so.

I think he, too, more than any of them, misses the sort of innocence that went along with their Hogwarts days. Things really have changed so much since ITB for all of them. :D I would love for you to someday read it! But no rush, of course -- you're so busy, and it's not going anywhere.

He does need a hug. ♥ Thank you so much for this review too, dear. I honestly just cannot tell you what it means to me to know that you're still reading this story. Gratitude of this size cannot be put into words!!
