I am glad that Harry wants to be a friend for Ginny. I think it is a logical consequence of the events in the chamber. I liked the analogy that if the defeat of a Mountain Troll can cement a friendship then why saving someone from a Basilisk wouldn't do that as well. Sirius is doing quite well in handing out advices. Apparently he's already well accustomed to his godfather role.

I really like how you're writing Sirius. He's been accused of seeing his friend James in Harry instead of Harry but that's not how you see him (nor I). I also like how you have Harry getting past his discomfort around Ginny to reach out to her. Sirius talking to him about trying his best was icing on the cake. Although it was never articulated in the books (at least not that I can recall) I always felt he didn't try to hard for just the reasons you brought up. I really like the scenes you wrote of Harry and Sirius bonding. I can't wait for their surprise at how healthy and happy Harry will look when he comes for the train. That ought to make them rethink a few things.

I can't wait for the next update. I love stories like this, where Harry becomes more independent of those who want to control every aspect of his life. It'll be interesting on the train to see how Ron actually reacts to hearing Harry say he wants Ginny around. That should be fun! From his reaction to the letter, I don't think Ron is going to like it very much.

What a wonderful chapter, and just as we would expect if Sirius had raised Harry. Nice to see the easy trust Harry has, and Sirius not taking advantage of it, he is still just as wounded as Harry, so they are good for each other. Liked that Harry wrote to Ginny and worried about her. As always, looking forward to more xx

I am really liking this 3rd year for Harry! Chirp chirp! The Canary Islands place was a perfect spot for healing for both Harry and Sirius!

What an excellent chapter! I love the way that Harry is opening up to Sirius and how many different activities they are doing together. I am not surprised that Harry has been holding back academically, but hopefully he will really push himself to do well in the future. How wonderful for Ginny to get such a lovely gift from Harry. I suppose Ron has to be difficult for the moment, but I hope he self corrects somewhat as time goes by.

i love this story so much! normally sirius is portrayed either as a too-serious helicopter dad or an immature nutcase, and i think you've struck a really nice balance between the two (or, well, the nicer versions of the two). i can't wait to read more, and i hope dumbledore gets his beard caught in a dragon's mouth ;)

Nice. I'll be interested to see how Ron treats Harry when he sees him and what kind of role Dumbledore will have in this. Can't wait for more.
