Hello!

I had made a big deal out of saying I would read/review some work and here I am. I'm sorry that I didn't get here right away, I've been busy with boring adult stuff and it really sucks.
Anyway! Wow. Talk about great writing, first of all! I was completely immersed in the story with that first line and I really loved your progression of introducing the characters. I thought it was unique to show Kreacher's thought process as well, I don't really see much from his side of things. And the description of Regulus vs. Sirius was smoothly done as well and I was able to pick up on their differences right away. The feeling of the home was very well written as well, I could picture it all in my head and could sense Sirius's loathing and Regulus's innocence. Are you going to be going back and forth betweeen POV's of the two brothers? They don't seem particularly close but I do like that you have them interacting when their own parents seem to disregard the oldest brother to favor the second. Loved the little hints of Voldemorts rise as well in Regulus's newspaper clippings and that littel bit with their father and Sirius was perfection. ;)
So. I'm really glad that I decided to read this and I'll be back! I promise! I've got some updates of my own to do and then, probably I'll be continuing on from this. Its pretty darn excellent.
But you probably know that already. ;)
Much love,
Gabbie

Author's Response: Hi! I can COMPLETELY sympathize with being busy. Being an adult really is no fun, huh? :) Anyway, thank you for coming by!

I'm glad you liked witnessing the banter between Regulus and Sirius and seeing the differences between them made apparent. I'm not going to be going between Sirius and Regulus's perspectives persay; the story is third person, and it focuses alternately on Lily and Regulus. You'll get Sirius in with that :)

Sirius is definitely very distanced from the rest of his family, though the outright break is yet to come. In fact, at the point in the story where I am now, it's not far off at all :( I did want to emphasize that Regulus and his brother are not mortal enemies yet, either. That's a major point/conflict in this story.

I'm happy you liked Kreacher, too. He's important to Regulus, so he's important to the story overall in that way.

Well, thanks again! I do hope you return soon!

Amanda
