Hello! Review tag!

Oh wow. This was really beautiful, so raw, and really tugged at my heartstrings. I love the way you portrayed Mary and Regulus, and how they had the Room of Requirement as "their" place. Your characterisation of Mary was wonderful, considering she doesn't appear in the story at all.

I think the saddest part was how, at least the way I read it, Regulus joined the Death Eaters in the midst of grief at Mary's death, acting on a whim (much like his brother in that respect) - even though they were the very people Mary hated. But it shows another side to Regulus' betrayal of Voldemort later. And I love that. It's like you've added another layer to canon. But ahhh so sad! I can tell in this that he's already starting to regret his decision, like the more he accepts Mary's death, the more he regrets joining the DE's.

Really well done on this. I'm so glad I read it. You're a great writer!

Author's Response: Aww, thank you so much for enjoying the fic :) I was really trying to write something that wasn't perfectly polished but was more raw and emotional, so I'm glad that came through for you. I'm glad you liked Mary, too, and that you thought her characterisation came through even though it was only Reg's opinions and memories of her. It's definitely sad to think if Regulus would have still joined the Death Eaters if Mary was alive, and I think he probably wouldn't have, either because she would have talked him out of it, or because when she's gone, he's really looking for something to hold onto because he feels so lost, and if Mary was still alive he might not have needed that comfort.

Thanks for the lovely review hon.
