I had a lot of positive reviews when I posted this in the WbA section; I thought I'd try and see if this fic was worthy of the Library. (It is relatively short, so that might play against me.)

And my sickle.

Definitely library worthy, even if a little disturbing.

4/5 from me.

Deliciously evil. I give it 4/5. And thats high praise considering I don't generally like one-shots.

Oh yeah. The highest.

5/5. One of the best one-shots in a long while. Dark themed (see: name of website) and presents a reasonable scenario - how far will one go for safety? Also, there is a dog.

I loved it in WbA, and that hasn't faded. 5/5, and a yell for a sequel.

Seriously, I think DLP have spoken and this story defenitely deserve the place in the library. Although, I don't really think there is a needs for a sequel to this one-shot since current ending add to the mystery and give us a chance to use our imagination on what will happen next.

5/5

Definite 5/5. The most enjoyable part of it is not only is the premise original, it's presented in a way that makes a lot of sense. One could see this happening, if not before then certainly after it's been read.

5/5, an awesome piece of litterature.

There's no need for a sequel for a sequel's sake.

You took the words out of my... Keyboard?

Anyway, this is an undeniably discomforting but excellent story. It's a shame that there really isn't much more too say considering how short it is. Highly readable for a one shot and I do hope you pursue the idea further.

5/5.

It's still as disturbing as when I first read it and still as excellent when I first read it. Kudos to you for having the cojones to post it in For Review, definitely good enough for the library.

I love the gritty realism that James has and his utter ruthlessness in protecting his family, I like to think I would do the same sort of thing to protect me and mine.

5/5 for a superb, short, to-the-point fanfiction.

I have to agree. It's an awesome dark tragedy story for Sirius. I also vote it a 5/5.
