Chapter: In dying, the bleeding pearl whispers aloud

Suzie. It is so not fair that you can make beautiful banners, are good at science, write beautiful prose, AND write genius poetry. Just wanted to get that out of the way.

I've had to read this through like three times in order to get more than a taste at the beauty and meaning here. It's incredibly deep. I love all the amazing symbolism, and I'm trying to grasp what it all means … gah. Wow. To me, it's almost like there are several people portrayed here, and perhaps several places? I see Hogwarts, and number twelve Grimmauld Place, and Azkaban, and number four Privet Drive. I see Harry, Remus, Sirius, Regulus. But what seems most real to me is Regulus, remembering his life, his house, his master, and giving it up for what is right. Again, I love how writing can be open to interpretation, for I'm sure I haven't grasped what you were intending as you wrote this, but that even so I can get something from it.

Everything about this screams "bittersweet". It's just achingly beautiful, and sad … I was trying to find a line to quote back at you, but I couldn't choose just one or two. The imagery is just exquisite, and the word choice, and the feelings that it invokes without spelling it out – yes, this is why poetry is so powerful. I just can't get over this, dear. Simply stunning.

Wow.

This poem is totally going in my favourite stories list.

I was wondering what you had in mind when you wrote it, though. I got a feeling of either Remus or Snape.

But man, was that good.
