Wowowow the descriptions in here are extremely captivating. I didn't understand at first that this wasn't Gilderoy in St. Mungo's after the Chamber of Secrets, but that made it even more surprising when I found out who this mysterious companion was, which isn't a bad thing :D

There's this ease to your writing, like it's good and easy and rhythmic for you yourself to write and it reads so smoothly and gracefully for me. There's an elegance to these metaphors and descriptions and there are some staggeringly beautiful lines in here that I've just read over and over again--things that have this, well, this je ne sais pas about them, which is probably a really unhelpful statement BUT it's all I can say. They're very--well, silky, and fluttering, and strong and light all at once. There. I tried.

I've never ever thought about this pairing, mostly because it's hard for me to think about Gilderoy taking any relationship seriously as something other than a way to make himself feel important, and I suppose in a way that could be what the last line could refer to. We see that Gilderoy's clearly--confused--and all that description in this about what he actually feels and what it's like to be in his skin and in his mind is just--beautiful, really. And added to the beauty of your writing, this is such an interesting story to me already.

I'm not too familiar with slash pairings (in HP fandom, at least, because WHO HASN'T READ A LITTLE JOHNLOCK OR MERTHUR O K), but I think you wrote this one really well. Like I've already said but I have to say again; your writing seems so effortless and glossy and well, glove-like. The whole feeling of the banner really fits this story, too!

I think as far as plot, you've got me interested in these things: why these two matter to each other, how they met and why Regulus is so intent on understanding Sirius's motives and why Gilderoy is lying to everyone. I love that you didn't feel like you had to explain every little thing here because the point of this chapter, I think, was really just to get to know Gilderoy through his reactions to everything and to be introduced to these--these trysts--between him and Regulus.

I love the Blue and Bronze review battle because it introduces me to stories like this!! Well done, well-written, intriguing and beautiful.
