Review:IloveNeville says:
Cassian Wilkes. Cassian, a variation of Cassius, means "empty" or "hollow". Atroxas is taken from the Latin word atrox, which means "terrible, cruel, horror". Finally, Ignavus means "lazy" and also "cowardly".

Good names! I really liked your choices. They were very fitting.

He just believed in labeling things as they were, that was all. It was only a word, the right word.

Good quote! You've revealed just a small fragment of the whole picture that is Regulus Black. I liked the way you described Regulus kicking off from the ground barefoot. I felt as if I were doing it all myself. It sounded very peaceful. You did a great job of writing Slughorn, he seemed very much like the Slughorn from the book. And I liked that he was a little prejudiced, and you didn't just show his positive attributes. Overall, it was a great chapter. You're such a good writer!

Author's Response: Hey, thanks for coming by! Sorry it's taken me a while to get around to responding to these reviews. I got busy with work and then the holidays happened. I'll get back to your story sometime later today or this evening.

I'm glad you like the names. There were some divided opinions about them, but I thought they fit well with other Slytherin names, and it was fun researching terrible meanings for them :)

I like that quote a lot, too. I think it implies that Regulus isn't strictly a bad person, even for using such an awful word -- it's like he doesn't know any better. He doesn't understand the rage it stirs up in some people.

I'm glad you liked the description, as well as Slughorn's characterization. He definitely isn't perfect, but I really like writing him because he adds some needed humor to the story.

Thanks for your kind review :)
