Wow. This was really interesting! I love dark stories, sad stories, angst-ridden stories -- they are, for me, much more interesting than light, fluffy romances and happily-ever-after endings. I wasn't surprised at all to read your author's note and see that a lot of this was inspired by Gothic horror, and I think you've captured that particular genre quite well in this one-shot. The imagery was bleak and black, but I mean that in the best way possible -- really, I did like the way you've written this stylistically! (You'll have to forgive me: It's a bit hard, praising a sad story sometimes.)

I love Regulus stories, and I'm pretty happy, because it seems that more and more people are writing about him nowadays. I think that you did his story justice! The ending, especially, because for some reason one of the things I haven't read a lot about where he's concerned (and maybe it's just me not knowing quite where to look) is what happens during Regulus's venturing into the cave. The last section gave me chills -- love that mental image of him!

I think you did a really good job with this story! There was a darkness to it that was nonetheless elegant, and having read a story or two of yours before, that seems to be your thing. :) Definitely keep writing like this!

Author's Response: I tend to find sad and dark stories much more interesting too, especially the ones that are implied by canon and then never mentioned again. It's one of the reasons why this one got written, really.
Gothic horror is one of my favourite genres, and so I'm really glad you thought I pulled it off okay! :)

There does seem to be a bit of a fanon gap still when it comes to what actually goes on with Regulus inside the cave, which is sad, but it's a fairly difficult topic to handle.

Anyway - thank you so much for your lovely review, and I'm really really happy that you liked this! :D
