    So Much Lighter Now I Have Met You

    So Much Lighter Now I Have Met You by EverBlue3

    Summary: “I guess, given the significance of all you represent, I expected you to be heavier.” Sirius’s initial thoughts following Harry’s birth. Oneshot, 1,657 Words.

    Why You Should Care: There’s such a truth, artless and open, about this fic. Harry’s birth, even before he Lived, was such a momentous occasion — the tortured passions of war projected in something innocent and fragile — and in Sirius’ mind here we see the thoughts and feelings of the time. It’s sweet and sad and all the fears and worries coming pouring out to this child: not in an exaggerated way, but with true depth of character. We see everything Sirius hides and we see everything Sirius can’t bring himself to think, let alone say. And yet behind it all is the echo, the shadow, the style with that arrogance and that teenage playfulness that we all know and love. There’s so much being said, and yet there’s still a real, definable character in there. EverBlue3 lets us truly understand how it must have felt to hold the child, to feel its pulse and know its importance.

    Why You Might Not Care: I’m not really sure. It’s sweet and sad and a little bit funny, and I reckon there’s something here for most people.

    Apologies: Again, this is late, I’m sorry. Let me explain: if I don’t have time to post the rec the night before I email myself the link and the story summary and write them at school. Occasionally I have an issue at school (such as, today, the computer rooms were all closed for software trials) and I have to do it when I get home. I don’t abandon you, I swear!

      just wanted to let you know browsers cannot open the link as it is written. i think there is an extra http in the address ’cause i subtracted one of them when i was shown the error message and then got to the story.

      thanks!
