I really laughed at this one (got quite a few funny looks from work colleagues). I had also always imagined Sirius in his youth before Azkaban to be quite pretty for a boy, just from the statements people made about him being tired and worning looking to how he had looked before.

I’m glad your ego doesn’t need it. Now I don’t have to say how wonderful I thought it was. Whew.

I will agree with Tori. They always make Sirius look girlie. In my mind's eye, Sirius continues to bear resemblance to Hugh Jackman who is NOT GIRLIE! Also... Brilliance.
hey... I just realized it's Friday the 13th. And that its 6:30am. I'll be off to bed now...

Where do you come up with all the ideas to these storys? Whatever the reason, I love them. They are so funny... And, I love all your disclaimers.

Honestly, this whole story was great, but the 'use of incredulous' comment had me in stitches. Such honesty!

It's refreshing to read a story about/from the perspective of guys and know it's going to be spot on. I'm definitely putting your name on my mental list of authors to check up on.

Again, thanks!

The most terrific thing about your writing is the fantasticly quotable sentences."What?" Sirius looked down. For example,"Dammit! Now I’m pretty and I
don’t wear pants. The transformation has begun." I can see that one being quoted for years...

Oh, so now I have to write another review. Damn. It is not very comfortable to swear to oneself to review every story that is worth of that - and be honest about it.
But how many reviews can one person write one day, without repeating oneself? Maybe it will be better if I just list my three favourite lines. (Well it's not my idea, but anyway.)

"Remus, who only followed Quidditch as closely as to know that James played it on occasion, tried to think of something to add to the conversation. 'But what if the Wasps win? They’re certainly… um… waspish.'"

"James, who knew Sirius better than anyone, suggested that they just let him alone until he either came to his senses or got distracted by something shiny or dangerous."

“'Let’s go to Hogsmeade next weekend,' said Sirius. The girl nodded. 'Thank you. See you later.'"

That's about it. I hope You understand that I really like Your work, no?

I saw a quote from you on the 'Quick Quotes Quill' thread and found it so good I just had to read one of your stories. I have never loved a Sirius fic so much and believe me, I love Sirius. What a great, fun read! Your portrayal of the Marauders was perfect. I loved many lines, so I won't quote them all here. But excellent story, I'm going to have to read more of your stories.

that they just let him alone until he either came to his senses or got distracted by something shiny or dangerous
-made me laugh the most

Your tongue was in so many foreign mouths that it had a passport.

They both turned toward the Slytherin table, where Bellatrix was correcting her sister’s posture by force.
-nicely in character

-second place winner.

You are a breath of fresh air in a world of angst ridden Sirius fan fiction."Sirius slid morosely into a seat next to Remus. “What’s wrong with you?” asked Remus.

“I’m beautiful,” Sirius replied glumly."

Holy Hippogriffs, Jack...every time I think your stories can't get more insanely funny...


Someone has a problem with modesty, thought James. Now, back to my brilliant plan.<<

as;dlfja;sldkfja;slkdf One of the best fanfic lines EVER.

>>They both turned toward the Slytherin table, where Bellatrix was correcting her sister’s posture by force.<<

Well, Bella's certainly in character, isn't she? ;)

>>Your tongue was in so many foreign mouths that it had a passport. <<

*dies* Okay, maybe that's the best fanfic line ever. At least we know the origins of HogwartsLothario!Sirius.

Hilarious, as always!

As much as I hate to ruin the fact that you have 35 reviews, I'm afraid I must add mine to the list.

I'm not sure what I expected from the summary, but it definitely wasn't this. Though, I assure you, it was a pleasant surprise. The whole thing was very funny, and it had some great lines (I'd quote them, but then that'd be a boring review, because I'm sure you know what you wrote).

I think you got Sirius down perfectly. I always imagined him as looking like a very pretty boy, or a rather plain girl (Like my little cousin who keeps getting mistaken for a girl because my aunt refuses to cut his hair). The interaction between the boys seemed great, and I'm glad you didn't really elbow Peter out of the picture as many writers tend to do.

I love this not only because it was so good, but because it was so short. It's like drinking wine: instant happiness without having to do all that soul-searching stuff! ^_~ Great job.

Fun story, I enjoyed your characterizations. Snape in a goatee is something I'd like to see.

Another great story. I love
"I didn’t see where you had any right telling me to develop muscle tone.”
“What do you mean?” asked James.
“Well, you’re all skinny, and the other day Lily beat you up—”
“I mean,” said James, blushing, “what advice?”
Write some more!

Reviewid: 105470Chapter: 1
Ah... great humour from you as always. I especially like Sirius's exclamation as he looks in the mirror; Remus's complete lack of interest in Quidditch still managing to triumph over Peter's dedication; and Victoria Ficus... I knew so many girls like her in secondary school. XD

Another cracking short, how do you keep it up? Can we have some more of this maruaders banter, please?

Reviewer: ivy & GracieDate: 2004-11-20

You are truly the Master of the Riddikulus! Favorite lines:

>>James, who knew Sirius better than anyone, suggested that they just let him alone until he either came to his senses or got distracted by something shiny or dangerous. Sirius being Sirius, the three assumed that it would end up being the latter option, sense not factoring into their experiences with him<<

>>The look that Sirius gave Remus could be called doubtful, but it’d be wasting a perfect opportunity to use the word ‘incredulous’. “What?”<<

>>Sirius’ eye twitched. “I’ll show you.” He marched into the Great Hall and grabbed the arm of the first girl he saw—in this case, a Slytherin named Victoria Ficus. “Do I turn you on?” he asked.

“Buh?” she asked eloquently.

“I’m going to kiss you now. And when I kiss someone, they stay kissed for some time.” He then proceeded to do just that.<<

As always, you've entertained us mightily. Many thanks!!

You can't just leave it like that. I want to know what happens. You never followed up on the James/Lily thing. I think you should write a sequel!

This is perhaps one of the funniest lines I've ever read. To show you how much I like it, I am telling you now that I am going to steal it for future use. What makes it even better, is that it fits canon as well!

Great work!

I spent a good five minutes laughing about that. Seriously laughing, as in tears rolling down my face. Five minutes. Five bloody minutes. Usually its just "Bwhahahaha! That freakin' funny. Haha!" Then I go all straight faved until the next appropriate joke.

Hahahahahaha.... I was laughing so hard, and still do, actually. You have the uncanny ability to write humour fics.

>>“This!” He pointed at his own chin proudly. Remus dabbed at it uncertainly with a napkin. “No! The whiskers!”

James leaned in and squinted. “Ah, I see one. Or else it’s a blackhead.”

“Ah, you’re just jealous of my manly… machismo.” Just then, Peter took his seat across from Sirius. “Wormtail!” Sirius stuck out his chin again. “What do you think?”

Peter glanced at Sirius. “I’ve got a lotion back in the tower that’ll clear that right up,” he said uncertainly.<<

That was really hillarious!

I am still laughing. Coffee is coming out of my nose and other members of the household are looking at me strangely. And I am still laughing. Everything about this is great, but my favorite line is the passport. Thanks!
