I love the way this one started out, with poor Sirius trapped under the vigilant eyes of his perfectionist parents. I'm not entirely sure "inexpert" is a word, though. "Inept" may be a better fit there. You may want to double-check. I also love the idea of Sirius playing piano. It's so far off from what I usually read of him, but I can imagine him working on it while still living under his parents' roof. Very interesting.

I also loved the way you portrayed the Sirius/Regulus relationship. Regulus is the ideal child, but now Sirius has a chance to go off and make a name for himself. It's sort of sad to know that that name will not make his parents proud, and it's even sadder to think about this already fragile relationship between brothers falling apart completely.

Well done, as usual. Off to chapter two!

Author's Response: The idea of playing the piano and not being very good at it stemmed from a piece I had written for my Creative Writing class. I do believe that inexpert is a word but I can see where it might not sound correct. I have this image of the Blacks as this aristocratic family that expects a lot of their children and so I love the idea of the brothers learning to play the piano.

I really love writing Sirius/Regulus and I want to write more of their brotherly interactions. You're making me really want to continue this story!

Thanks for the reviews!
