Hi! I'm here from Review Tag :)

This is a great piece - I really love your descriptions, the way you make small events into the gigantic impacts that they are in canon. Your comment about the word 'dark' struck me as being particularly effective in its subtlety. I also thought you characterized both Regulus and Remus well, though I was admittedly slightly more impressed with Regulus's section. (Not entirely sure why.)

Overall, this was a little confusing for me, though. Usually I can appreciate very abstract and disjointed pieces like this, but I guess I just sort of missed the point on this one, like you were a little too subtle in the references that you were making. For example, I still can't figure out exactly what was meant by the title. Care to help me out?

Overall, though, this is nice, and I can see from even this small sampling that you've got talent. It's also nice to not pick out technical errors as I go along, because I don't see too many of them here. This is a great addition to the EWC Challenge :)

Author's Response: Hi!

I'm glad you like the descriptions - I R&R'd your Neville/Hannah today, and your own descriptions blew me away, so that's very high praise coming from someone like you. I may have put a touch bit more thought into Regulus' character rather than Remus' in this case, so that might be why you preferred his part.

I've managed to confuse everyone with this fic. I think I just like subtle references and feeling better than everyone who doesn't get it. xD
"a godlike science" is in fact a Frankenstein quote about language in general, which I thought was fitting for this fic. I should probably put that in an author's note somewhere.

Thank you for your review, and I'm glad you liked it. :)
