Okay, not sure why I never read this before because it has Sirius in it and it's by you. I think I'm just dreadfully slow on the uptake.
I like this. I like the simple reflective tone of the piece and how the song connects Regulus to Sirius and their terrible history. I wish they'd been reconciled because they were far more similar than they realised.
I did feel that Regulus' thoughts in places were rather formal, but then again, he is reflecting solemnly and has been indoctrinated by the Blacks and the DE's so I think he would have that type of tone. (Ignore me, I'm just pretending I should be in SPEW)
Very well thought out story, Natalie. ~Carole~
Author's Response: Croll! I wrote it for an MWPP class. I suppose Terri marked them, not you. I did choose a deliberately formal tone for Regulus. Looking back, I might have to revise my characterisation of him, because I have changed a lot as a fanfic writer and an HP fan. I still have that Regulus/Rabastan WIP, in which Regulus is different from the one here. Eh, I am rambling. Seriously, though, thank you for the review and the recommendation! <33 ~Natalie
Oh my gosh, Natalie (I'm sorry if I spelled your name wrong-there's some that I can't ever remember how to spell and yours is one of them)! This story is amazing. I'm speachless. Really, I am. This is just an amazing one shot. I don't have anything to say about it other than that I love it. Well, that's all that I wanted to say. Also, you should write more Regulus stories. You write him very well; he is believable.
Author's Response: Alyssa!
Can I just say I love you? You always review for me when I'm losing hope. :) Thank you for saying that I can write Regulus well. I love him, but he's rather difficult to grasp. And THANK YOU for the review.
P.S. Yes, you spelled it right. It is Natalie. :D
