As always, wonderful chapter.

You add so much to Sirius' characterization here. He's still so on-edge and frayed, maybe even moreso than the night before because he doesn't have swimming to distract him and its a little more real.When you have him say, "I used to wonder, you know. I used to think about when I’d start screaming like the rest, and now I know. It’s right now, this minute, because this can not be happening !" it is just perfect. The panic is so present, so boiling-over in the dizzying escalation from casual comment to hysterical screaming. Sirus' worries that Harry prefers Remus are also very in-character and come back again later, so I was delighted to see it in this chapter. But like Danger tells him later, Sirius is their grounding pin. Harry is so carefree and happy with him in this scene, its astonishing. I mean, its been less than 24 hours since he was rescued. I have to believe it is the way Sirius doesn't panic about Harry's appearance, but treats him normally, that prompts the toddler to do the same.

In other words, there is so much going on and you are amazing.

This chapter is full of warm fuzzy cute things. Padfoot would love to chase them, but I think he's too busy being overwhelmed by their amazing happiness-enducing powers. :D

When my best friends' son was born, I felt EXACTLY the same way! You're so good at catching and relating the feelings....

I loved this chapter! I especially loved the time Sirius spent with Harry; it was so heart-warming. You've done such a fabulous job so far, and I can't wait to read the upcoming chapters and stories.

Excellent story, very well written--plot and character development. I'm looking forward to reading chapters 10 and up, but I have to go to bed now (grumble). It's 1:20am here and I have to get up at 6:00am to get my kids ready for school...then I can read more. ;-D

Thank you for the lovely reviews--it's great to see someone reacting to the story as it goes along. I hope very much that you continue to enjoy it. I will warn you, in regards to your kids, that there are occasional adult moments ahead, but I've tried to 'code' them sufficiently that no one who doesn't already know what goes on will understand.

Vaguely he heard the door open and close again, but he was lost in the wonder of the tiny life in his arms...

For some reason I just have to wonder what that would've led into. Was it Moony or Wormtail or someone else who came in, or did someone leave without Sirius noticing?

I want to go all "How sweet!!! and Awwww, and etc."

But I won't, because I don't do that sort of thing :D

The scene with Sirius and Harry was the best of the chapter. Seriously. :D He's got a great sense of humour, Mr. Black.

Ch.9 - - The reunion was most touching.

Imagining what it would be like in the various character's places tells me you have done a fine job with this chapter.

The emotions you write are very realistic.

Fine work!
