Review:Toujours Padfoot says:
I liked this one-shot; I think you conveyed Regulus's beliefs, life, and mistakes very well. I like that he maintained the core belief that purebloods were superior, because honestly after all those years of brainwashing from his parents and the Death Eaters, changing his mind 360 degrees is so unlikely. Regulus is a mystery - defying the Dark Lord he sought to follow, attempting to destroy a piece of his master's soul. I always wondered what had happened to make him change sides. I feel that he is one of the biggest and most unexplained heroes in the books, and despite being such a coward, he turned out to be very, very brave. You retained all of his original characteristics and made them work even when he began to change his views on Voldemort.

The only thing I caught was Voldemort "catching up" to Regulus and coming after him. Voldemort never learned that the locket was taken from the cave until Deathly Hallows, when he went and searched all of his horcrux hiding places one by one. He never knew Regulus was ever involved, and Regulus died because he was pulled into the water by the Inferi. After he drank the potion, he would have been thirsty, and would've tried drinking from the lake. And Kreacher did not drink it the second time - it was Regulus. Regulus died in the cave and Kreacher took the locket home. Voldemort probably did not bat an eye that one of his servants was gone, and the other Death Eaters most likely assumed that the Order had gotten him. For more info, check out the lexicon.

All in all, however, I thought this was a very chilling tale and the characterization was spot-on. Well done!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review! I'm glad you think I characterized him well. I'll go back to the story now and fix it- that's a pretty big mistake (I just completely forgot about exactly how he died). Glad you caught it! Thanks once again- your comment is really helpful!
