Chapter: Leaving Home

I liked this a lot. It's easy to drop Sirius into the side of the Order and Regulas into the Death Eater camp and be done with it... but things are rarely that simple. I like that there is some ambiguity here about what might happen with Regulus... that Sirius, at least, has not given up hope that he will see the light.

I also loved that Mrs. Potter didn't even know Sirius was moving in... that he was confident enough because of the relationship he already had with that family to know he would be welcome. At least he has that, considering what he is leaving.

I love thinking about the "what ifs" in the back story. Thank you for this!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I know from RL, things are never black and white (no pun intended). There are always two sides and often the truth is somewhere in the middle. Thanks again. Terri

Chapter: Leaving Home

“I locked the door for a reason,” he said as he slipped his wand into his back pocket. Handy, but out of sight, he thought.

Hmm, Mad-Eye wouldn't approve. Terri, great snapshot moment and original in that you didn't have one huge argument, and Walburga was actually crying over her shiftless son. The moments with Regulus were well played. You sort of hope he'll escape with Sirius, but it was not to be.

Author's Response: Carole, No, Mad-Eye would never approve. I wanted something different, a reason he left that was far from the huge blowout you mostly see. I am glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for your review. Terri
