I am so, so sorry this took so long, lovely. I really am.

First of all, your focuses:

Characterisation
I thought he was brilliant. He kind of oozed tortured Black family boy. I think he grew and grew throughout the story and by the end, I was completely convinced about his character as Regulus. For someone we've never met, he kind of fit my expectations completely by the ending part - from the last flashback onto the last line.

I won't deny my scepticism when I saw it was Regulus/OC - OCs in one-shots are something I've never been much of a fan of - but you completely upset my expectations with this. Audrey could have become merely a device to push the plot forward but she wasn't. I did feel sorry for both of them as their relationship progressed and it really was quite heartbreaking when Regulus said:
I thought about what she said but by the time I understood what she meant, she was already with someone else.
That line really stood out for me.

Format
I don't really have much to say on this. The flashbacks were integrated really well into the story itself and the plot unravelled really well with them. The story itself is long but it really didn't feel it which is a testament to the way the plot pushes forward.

Concept
Again, this will be short. I've brushed on this but I think it's a wonderful way to demonstrate another force on what made Regulus do what he did. It really is a fantastic idea.


Dialogue, description, all of it was absolutely gorgeous. So natural and the flow was brilliant. I rarely read anything like this and it was so refreshing.

I really do think it's wonderful.

I'm so sorry you had to wait so long for this. I hope it's up to scratch!

P.S. This man hunt you're on is entertaining me greatly!

Author's Response: Gah! I'm sorry I didn't respond to this sooner! Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm happy you liked this. Regulus is one of my favorite minor characters and I always wondered why he did what he did. Audrey was really just going to be an aside when I started this originally, but I ended up really liking her and wanted to put more of her in the story. I know it's a bit long, but I've found that, in general, I really can't tell a short story. I'm working on that, haha.

Again, so glad you liked this and that Regulus lived up to your expectations! Sorry it took me a bit to respond.

lovelovelove,
Annie
