Hey! I'm (finally) here to review your entry :)

This piece is very intriguing. I love your style and the way that I feel tossed about and drowned in Lockhart's fractured memories and snatches of the present. It's reminiscent of Seeing Double in places, particularly that initial chapter, but I like this one even better. I love the way you've played with the canon version of Lockhart's life and the loss of his memories in the second book. It's like he can still recall little things, but they're confused with what's real and what's not. It reminds me a bit of Inception, and to me that seems like a more interesting and devilish torture than simply losing the lot of it.

I love the characterization here, too. Lockhart isn't just comic relief, but shows that he can really feel, that part of him can fear, in a way. I think your Regulus shines even more, though. When I write him, I usually err on the side of the benign, but I like that he's got this cruel side and knows that he can use his name and his power to get what he wants. It fits in very well with his position as a Slytherin and eventual Death Eater. Very well done!

The imagery is gorgeous - I love the way you describe the two of them on the beach and the stuffy atmosphere of the hospital. Speaking of St. Mungo's, I think you integrated it well into this chapter, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes next in this very unique plot line.

Great work! Thanks for entering, and I'll be posting the winners/prizes via blog after the deadline :)
