Heya! I'm here with the tag review from the forums.

I must say, while skimming through the summaries for your stories I stopped at this one and never looked back. Regulus has always been an intriguing character to me, so I never lose an opportunity to read more about him (even if it's not canon material).

I liked how this story started off. We don't know so much about Regulus and his motivations of joining the Death Eater ranks, so having him align with Voldemort to help protect his family and make them proud isn't far off in my opinion. Actually, making them proud is the sort of thing I imagine him doing. And one of the best ways to impress them, during those times, was joining the Dark Lord. I found his reasons very believable and the way you executed your ideas into words were pretty true to the image I have of Regulus.

It's a little hard imagining Kreacher sing a lullaby, even to Regulus, who was his most adored master, but that is a matter of personal choice regarding the elf's portrayal. I found it slightly derailing from what we know of his character to be like, but on the other hand we didn't really see any interaction between Regulus and Kreacher so he might as well have done things like this.

I think this is between the first stories that I found depicted a good and healthy relationship between Sirius and Regulus. While I tend to imagine them not so close, I am open to the possibility that they were actually pretty good friends, at least previous to Sirius's departure. Now I'm curious to see how they develop.

All in all a very nice beginning. Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Hi and thank you for the review!

I have always thought that there's more to Kreacher than what Jo tells us in books. Likewise with Regulus.

I'm not sure if Sirius and Reg were good friends as such, but they were brothers after all. Considering Sirius's volatile nature, he probably was very protective about his little brother until they came against each other because of the war and ideological differences.

I'm really glad you liked this chapter. Thanks for reading it. =)
