I think this is a really interesting take on Regulus - I like the idea of Kreacher being so important to him. That one line on its own was really good, really simple and blunt - "He was mine." Regulus felt really young there, possessive in quite a childish way, which I thought was good as, after all, he was just a teenager. It also gets across the... fondness? loyalty?... he feels towards Kreacher though, of course, which was a nice contrast after you stated that no one else is particularly important to him.

I liked your portrayal of Regulus in general, actually. The way you opened was quite brave, if that makes sense - you just make him seem absolutely awful. You didn't really redeem him by the end, either - he had our sympathy for the fact that he was going to be killed, of course, but then he had to go and start talking about pureblood supremacy. I mean this in a good way, by the way - most Regulus stories I've read will do their best to show him in the most positive light they can, despite his Death Eater ways (I'm guilty of this myself), so this was rather refereshing.

Oh and also, this is a really small point, but I really liked him thinking that maybe Sirius would be reinstated on the family tapestry. It's a really interesting thought.

Overall, great story! One very, very small thing annoyed me a bit though - you said "# 12 Grimmauld Place". Just a personal preference, but I find it's better to write numbers out fully in words. Sorry, I'm being picky now, but as I've said, I really rather enjoyed it. Great read!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for your review! I'm so glad you liked it!
You know, I never even thought about putting Regulus in a redeeming light; I was just trying to explain why he turned away from the Death Eaters in my mind.
I'm glad you liked the "He was mine" bit- I had a little struggle with Regulus caring for him so much because after all, don't we know that purebloods feel that house elves are beneath them? I'm glad it turned out nicely.
I think I will go back now and change the address. I never know which way to write it.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review!
