Oh no! WHY. REGULUS. SIRIUS. YOU'RE KILLING ME HERE, APH. :'(
Okay, I've shed my tears for now. *sniffles*
It was obviously not Sirius who sent the letter to the auror, although Alphard and Walburga seem to think it was him. Poor Sirius. It's so clear that he just wants to be loved by his family. :(
I love the scene with the aurors, with the entire family against them. It was wonderful to see how they were sticking together and putting up a common front against the accusations. Which leads me to believe that it was someone outside the family who betrayed them..Barty?
No matter how many times they fight, or how many times they tell each other that they hate each other and wouldn't mind if the other died, the brothers have such love for each other. They just don't know how to express it. Sirius' desperation and anguish was so powerfully portrayed, and if anyone else from the family thinks that he would try to kill his own brother, then they are just plain stupid. I really hope Reg is alright. :'(
Update soon, please! I'm so hooked onto this story and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Author's Response: I AM SO SO SORRY. GENUINELY. BUT IT HAD TO BE DONE. :(
It's okay - I kinda almost didn't want to write it, because, you know, it's Regulus and it just seemed wrong... but eh :P
Do they? :P Writing that conversation was so fun, but so hard... but yes, poor Sirius! Everyone seems to be so suspicious of him, but not want him around and it's pretty tough! :(
I've wanted to write a family-united scene in this since the beginning of it, tbh, so writing this was so fun... I was practically cackling at my desk, haha. Ooh, nice idea ;) Barty's dad is, after all, the Head of the Aurors...
YES. Exactly! :) They're brothers. And no matter how much they argue, or how much they dislike each other at a particular point in time, they're still brothers and it still means something. I'm so glad you liked that scene as it was honestly one of the hardest scenes to write in the whole thing, because I wanted it to be right, you know? No, no one will suspect him, don't worry about that! ;)
Gah, sorry for the lack of updates! Exams got in the way - hopefully one will be up soon! I've got so many things to post, but this is second in the queue, so soon! :)
Thank you so so much for this review and all of the others - I've honestly never been randomly review-bombed before and it was such a wonderful thing to get! I was so excited and it totally made my day, so thank you for that! :)
