Kiss and Tell  
Title: Kiss and Tell
Author: jdbracknell
Rating & Warnings: R (strongish, but not explicit, adult themes)
Prompts: Day of discovery, humour or action/adventure, banshee and picture 15 (Temple Bar in Dublin)
Word Count: 6658
Summary: For all his supposed genius, Sirius Black had always had rather a blind spot for the patently obvious.
Author’s Notes: The writer referred to (should you not be able to tell) is Beckett, and the Faces song on the jukebox is Stay With Me, which just screams Sirius at me. Reviewers get a night out in Dublin with their favourite fictional sex god ;).

Now that I've finally read this - fantastic. Love the humour, and the Banshee is a lovely little touch. And, as always, your Sirius is ridiculous and amusing. Great story :)

Thank you very much :D. I think Sirius has huge comic potential, and so I can't resist letting him wander into situations where he might make a fool of himself ;).

Glad you liked :D. Naked!Sirius for your trouble? ;)

Uttley brilliant and hysterically funny. So many great lines, I find it difficult to select a total favourite - although "I just thought she was thin and a bit goth." forced me to get up and close my office door as I was laughing far to conspiculously.

Good character work with all of them as well; I loved each individual voice you had here. And frankly, I thought Sirius was probably doing *just this* during OotP, only of course Harry had no idea so it didn't make the page. Well, maybe I didn't forsee a Banshee slip up....

Thank you very much :D. I'm glad it amused. These three are such fun to play with - sometimes I think I could write them just talking for ages, and not get bored.

I'm totally in love with the idea that Sirius will now refer to this as My Banshee Slip Up, lol. Have a naked!Sirius for your trouble ;).

I decided to look up the past advent, having more-or-less read through what strikes my interest in the current one, and saw your and went- Oh, she's one of the mods I think and a terrific writer, I'll read this.

I think there's nothing better then when you go to read something thinking- oh maybe this'll be good, and leave grinning ear to ear.

That was WONDERFUL. It was halirous *I can't stop laughing* it was cute, it was sweet, it was terribly sad because Angstful! Sirius of OOTP always makes me want to go up to the poor bloke and just hug him for a good bit of time until he hopefully feels better.

It was a combination of everything, and just wonderful. Alot of times challenge fics will end up being... sometimes not very original, if that makes sense, since you're trying to use the propmt. So this, this is just...

*Shakes head and grins some more*

(Only question, why didn't they just use an Impervious charm on the door... and walls... and etc.... so they couldn't be heard?)

Thank you very much :D. At first, when I got those prompts, I hadn't the faintest idea what to do with them, and then I jokingly said to someone 'unless I write Sirius accidentally sleeping with a banshee...', and thus an idea was born. I'm glad you liked it :D.

On the Impervious charm front, I'd imagine Sirius had other things on his mind, and Remus and Tonks were too befuddled by just being woken to think of it ;).

Oh, I didn't mean for Sirius. *I actually rather imagined he wanted to get them back and keep -them- up throughout the night with the screaming, even if it was a bit... well... ya :)* I actually meant for Remus and Tonks, and their nightly rituals, heh.

(But I do like how this fic seems to fit in with others- like the Brain Crack! fic of the threesome of.... my brain dying, Mad Eye mentions Sirius would so bring some woman into Headquaters, and in the Firewhiskey incident one they joked about Sirius sleeping with a banshee.)

Yes, I've been reading over your fics tonight :).

I noticed one problem though- Sirius isn't the secret keeper. So how could he have invited her back? I was thinking, well because she wasn't human the Fidelius charm doesn't apply, but if it was that simple Voldemort would have sent out legions of banshees -long- ago.

Oh, well, I think they'd have other things on their mind, too, other than silencing spells ;).

On the secret keeper front, I thought that there might be a way around it, given that Sirius is the home-owner. I pictured them not coming in through the front door - maybe Flooing from the pub, so Sirius would say 'home' or something, and side-along Floo her, thereby not actually revealing that it was headquarters. Or something. Sirius has had a lot of time on his hands and I'm sure he'd think of something when the need arose ;).
summoner_lenne9summoner_lenne9 on January 3rd, 2008 01:56 pm (UTC)
Probably; but if they did it every night you'd think at some point Sirius would just sneak up and cast the bloody charm himself, lol.

I don't know if that could work with saying 'home' though, since you do need to say the exact location. But I'm sure there is some loophole, and Sirius would definitely have found it. And what's the point of nit-picking, anyway, when this story is so lovely? :)
