Oh, this is good!  I like this Sirius.

Love how Mrs. Black actually thinks she can subvert the Sorting and have Sirius put in Slytherin.

And your choice of names: 'Malevala Nott' and 'Finn Potter.'  Yum!

 Mrs. Potter is rarely dscribed in fan-fic.  I like your version of James' mum--er--mother. (Yes, that fits her better.)

Favorite lines, because they reveal a lot about the character in a short bit:

..he rather liked Lily himself.

"Your blood-traitor Gryffindor brother can do it right, so why can't you?...Get to your spell books, boy!"

"I'm not like my family, ma'am..."

"Dear old Mum's finally flipped..."

Thanks for a great read.  I hope to read more of these soon.

Hehehe. I love this fic. Very well written. You wrote Sirius really well

Author's Response: Thanks a lot. I enjoyed writing this one. Sirius is probably my absolute favorite character from the books and I like thinking about where he came from.

Yeah, so this is brilliant. Seriously. Love. Your writing style... reading this, you can just feel the depth. This oozes with personality, love love love.

"You know what they say, don't you?" James asked. "Always pure. I think once you're a Black, you're rather stuck that way."

Brilliant. Just marvelous. I adore your phrasing (though, at one point - I think discussing betrothal? - Sirius said something and you wrote "Sirius retorted" and 'retorted' didn't feel like the proper word).

But I love it. Keep it up, truly.

Author's Response: Thank you...I have a real soft spot for Sirius and I like to think about his roots--where he came from emotionally and the events in his young life that led him to be a Gryffindor instead of following the family standard. I think he's an amazing character with more depth than most of them she's written because he's got a rather explosive history. Anyway, this was an easy write...I guess it's how I always pictured his home life.

It has a very warm feel, which is very different from where it started. And it's something I can relate too. Between this and talking about moving, I'm rather teary at the moment. Beautiful story.
