    The More Things Change

    The More Things Change by Shimotsuki

    Summary: Sirius Black has been unnervingly polite ever since Lily found herself actually kissing James Potter. Oneshot, 1,344 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Because something of this sort probably would have happened.  James and Sirius’ friendship was so tight that Lily taking up a certain amount of James’ time must have upset the balance a bit, and it would have taken all the Marauders some time to adjust to this intrusion; Sirius taking it the hardest seems very accurate, considering his character.  The interaction on the tower between Lily and Sirius is well written, and Lily and Sirius’ characters are nicely portrayed; both of them are clearly defined without the author needing to explain to us in a long, dialogue heavy, angsty scene.  Well done.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s very to-the-point.  Perhaps a little *too* to-the-point.  The scene on the tower and at the breakfast table the next day are excellent, but I think I would have appreciated a little longer build.  A few more interactions between the five.  This seems too short.

      I read this before… somewhere… and I quite enjoyed it. I am thoroughly convinced that something along these lines must have taken place, and this version was well-written.
