oh my! Dracana, that was gorgeous! i loved it darl, as i do everything you write. it was not as emotionally intense, but the way you wove the outside story around them worked an absolute wonder, and added a great deal to the story. Including all the small details of life outside their affair - Lucius and Narcissa, Bella, the encounter with Sirius, and finally the horcrux - it was fabulously done. you present such a beautiful Reg - he is so torn and conflicted and pained, confused about which path he should take. and i really like the Barty you gave us - another minor character in canon, so you created a fantastic personality for him. and the ending - i got a bit teary...it was brilliant. i think one of the best endings for Reg i have come across. the fact that his lover had to be the one - that made it all the more tragic.
beautiful, once again darl!
oh i emailed you that story - hope you like :)

No, there were not so many emotions to play on this. I wanted a slightly angsty feel to it, but not too heavily, because after all, they are Death Eaters, and feel as how they are expected to.
I'm glad you enjoyed the weaving of events that balanced their characters. I love Reg, he's so much fun to develop, because we don't know the entire truth of him, but there are so many possibilities. Writing minor characters is what I like to do the most, as it leaves a lot to the imagination. As I'm sure you've noticed, I don't write Draco much any more, because in truth, he has begun to annoy me. I think that's the fault of fanfiction rather than his actual character in the books, but there are so many fics on him, and in truth, I'm sick of it, as they are all so similiar. (No offense to yours, I really enjoyed it).
Really? One of the best? *frowns before grinning* I'm so pleased you think so!! :-)*attacks with hugs* Yeah, I sort of found that idea from Snape - didn't Snape have to kill one of his parents to declare that his only love and loyalty was to Voldemort? Or maybe I made that up . . . *shrugs* Probably came from some fanfic I read ages ago.
Anyway, thanks so much for your lovely review - as usual, it is much appreciated.
