Wow, I loved this! It was such an interesting concept and was written so beautifully. I loved the way Sirius and Regulus' relationship is looked at from the point of view of someone outside their relationship.

Usually I've seen Sirius portrayed as not really caring very much about his brother or being dismissive towards him, but his letter seemed as though he really did care about his brother in a way. I think during the time Sirius was stuck in Grimmauld Place, he must have really lonely and it must have been horrible for him, always wanting someone to talk to or more information about what was happening or just wanting to get out of there for once.

Kreacher and Molly were also characterized perfectly. Molly had that motherly-ness, and when Kreacher talked, it was just like how it had been in the books, so great job on that!

Overall, this was such a poignant read, and this was really wonderful to read!

Author's Response: Thank you very much! This was the result of one of those times when you hear a song or read a quote, and an idea for a story based around it just HITS you -- and those are sometimes my favorites, because there's a lot of inspiration there. Sirius already really intrigued me, too, because I've written so, so much about him in the past two years, and some of that time was spent on analyzing his relationship with his brother. It was almost natural for me to continue that here, even if it was from Molly's perspective.

I think he would have cared about Regulus, no matter the sort of person his brother was, just on the pretense that they were family. I'm absolutely nothing like my sisters, and we see eye to eye on literally almost nothing, but I love them very much just the same. I'm sure his time alone at Grimmauld Place would have made him think of Regulus, even if he didn't talk about that with anyone else. Any company would have probably done him good, but he grew up in that house with his brother. I'd be surprised if he DIDN'T think about him.

And I'm pleased you found Kreacher and Molly to be in character, too! I had a lot of fun writing both of them; sticking as close to canon is like a puzzle for me, and I really enjoy it. Thank you very much for taking the time to review this, and for saying such lovely things! ♥ I hope to see you back in the future, too!
