For Blackout Bingo.

I can never resist a story about the Black brothers. I've read a few about Sirius running away, each one being so different from another. Your take was just as unique, but equally as heartbreaking. Every time I read one, I beg Sirius to take Regulus with him and every time, he doesn't. But yours is the first, I think, to make me agree with his reasons why. To have two children running away, one of whom is the golden child of the family? There's not a chance in the world of escaping consequences for that. - because of that line. I don't want there to be consequences. ;(

I wanted to cry by the end. I could just imagine a heartbroken boy begging his brother not to leave him.

I loved this.

Author's Response: Hey!
I can never resist a story about the Black brothers either. Or the Black family in general. It's a bit of an obsession, you see. I'm thrilled that you thought my story was unique and yet equally impactful. That's honestly the best praise I could ever get so thank you a lot! I'm glad that you were able to see things from Sirius' side of the situation. The main point of this story was to show that neither Sirius nor Regulus was to blame for the things they did. Regulus didn't try to be the prim and proper stuck up that Sirius sometimes took him to be. He was weaker than Sirius and really couldn't stand up to his parents. At the same time, Sirius wasn't to blame for leaving Regulus behind because there was nothing he could do about it. If he did take Regulus, the chances were both of them would get caught and severely punished.

I'm really sorry about you wanting to cry but honestly I feel like I've done my job right ;) It's probably the first angst story I've ever written and I'm thrilled by the responses I've got. I'm very happy that you loved this story :)
