This is really, really good. I actually sort of love it. I think you've portrayed both brothers with great finesse. I've read few gauntlets that are so clear and cohesive. Congratulations on writing something so amazing; I think I'll go read more of your stories now. ;D
Author's Response: Awww... thank you. I'm very, very honoured that you think so highly of my fic. One of my favourite things to do is get into the heads of characters and I tried really hard to get a sharp contrast here between Regulus and Sirius, but still tie them together as young men fighting in the same war. Thanks again for reading and leaving such a wonderful review.
God job Stubby, sorry you had to go it alone. Minus a partner you managed to finish your prompts and create a good little story, perhaps your guide should have given you a few more to keep the story going.

Author's Response: Thanks, Kristy. I was a little confused as to what my Guide did (not to pin it all on her; she tried and was very enthusiastic), but I think I got a simple little story.
It turned out so well! Ours are so similar, Stubby, but I can see the irreconcilable differences. Oh well, right, it turned out great and we both got points anyway.
I thought it was lovely.
Author's Response: Haha, yeah. I loved yours, too- if only they would have fit together! Thanks for reading and reviewing, Lyd. -Stubby
I really enjoyed this. Somehow, you've turned what I expected to be a fairly dark fic into something very entertaining.
The only mistake I picked up is in Scowling, I took another step towards him.
I believe took should be take in keeping the tense consistent.
Author's Response: Thanks. I tried to get across the deeper elements while still shoving in a bit of humour and action. And yeah, I ALWAYS switch tenses when writing in first.
Oh, and you should definitely write a sequel. I'd read it! (I love Regulus)
Author's Response: Goody! (Me too.)
This story is really well-written and I enjoyed it immensely. It's going into my favorite's list.
Author's Response: Why, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
i liked it but im kinda curious what happened after that....maybe a follow up?
Author's Response: Haha, I'm curious about what happens next, too. I'd like to think that Regulus and Sirius got drunk together and then went their seperate ways. What I tried to show at the end was that this was the thing that got Regulus interested in destroying the Horcruxes. I'm actually entertaining the notion of writing a Regulus-fic as a sort of sequel to this with him going about his Horcrux business. Thanks for reading! -Stubby
