Hi! So sorry it took me so long to get here, but school got a little bit out of control.

I think you've done an absolutely brilliant job with this so far. I completely loved it.

I had a brief moment of confusion with the shifting realities before I realized that you had mentioned it, and then I caught on almost immediately.

Your description is absolutely gorgeous and so entrancing as well. Sometimes, if something is too description heavy I have a hard time convincing myself to follow it; no such problem existed here. You punctuated the description with moments of dialogue that had me hooked until the last word.

I think you did an amazing job with characterization. I particularly loved your Regulus. I'm developing an affinity for that character as of late, and I really think that you did him justice. You gave Regulus to be his own person, not just a not as important accessory to Sirius. And not only that, your Regulus isn't the sad, dejected, unwanted, loser child we so frequently see. He is a strong man with his own strengths and flaws, he's not perfect. But he also isn't subservient to anyone, especially not his brother. He is just as capable of getting in a good hex as his brother is.

I'm obsessed with the fact that you used Gilderoy and Regulus as the pairing for this. It's something that I never would have thought of on my own, but now that it's in my head, I can't help but wonder how I didn't see it before. It just fits so perfectly. I think it gives a solid explanation for why Gilderoy spent most of his life alone, pretending to hunt monsters. Why he had no family, no one who loved him.

I also think you had this moving at just the right pace. I think that if it went much slower you would have lost the reader, but on the same hand, it wouldn't have had the depth that it did if you sped it up. In my opinion, you did a brilliant job.

Overall, I loved this chapter and can't wait to read the next. Sorry again for it taking me so long to get here!

10/10
