Hello! For the Ninth Day of the Twelve Days of Reviewing, we had to review stories that have been podcasted.

I listened to the podcast of this story while I read along, and WOW, hearing the words makes a big difference! I absolutely loved this--it was so sad, but so beautifully written. Even though we were in Regulus' head the whole time, I still feel like I know him very well, just from the way he talked about Mary.

I never thought about Regulus dating at Hogwarts--or ever, really--but the Reg/Mary pairing that you've created in this story is positively beautiful. It actually makes a little bit of sense, then, why he went after Voldemort--he was getting revenge for his dead Muggle-born girlfriend. Can this be canon already?!?! :)

Really, I thought that everything about this story was perfect. I loved the description and Reg's thoughts and memories of Mary, and Mary's little interjections within the letter. It was a great thing to read, only made better by the fact that I got to hear it, too!

Author's Response: Hiya! I'm so glad you liked the story, and the podcast :D

I love podcasts. I really think hearing the words at the same time as reading them makes it a really cool experience, so I'm glad you liked that!

I'd never thought much about Regulus before writing this so I have no idea if romances about him are common, or if Regulus/Mary is a pairing anyone else has ever written at all? But I definitely fell in love with my characterisations of them so I'm really glad you liked them too!

Thanks so much for this lovely review, I'm so glad you liked the story!
