another fantastic story! i thought it was cool to see a different side of the story..i mean, we know that this happened but i liked how you wrote it from regulus' point of view and kreacher was there and all. super job (: Author's Response: Aw, thanks! I'm really proud of this one, Regulus is like my baby. I love him. ♥ (and in reference to my other response, this clearly shows I moved out of my Harry/Ginny stage into more developed characters) =D Thanks mucho! Report Review
Wow. I can't for the life of me understand why this story doesn't have more reviews, because it was absolutely brilliant! I've never read a fic about Regulas, but I really enjoyed this, and his character is so perfect. It's just how I imagined him. You did a really great job on this. It was interesting to read Kreacher's Tale from Regulas's point of view. I'm saving this story in my favorites. 10/10Author's Response: It's one of those little treasures that's hidden in the world and rarely is found, I suppose. XD Oh yay! You like it! -hughug- Thanks so much! Report Review
omg that story was fantastic, nearly had me in tearsAuthor's Response: Yay! Well, not yay I nearly made you cry. But at least I got my point across! Thanks so much! Report Review
Regulus is one character that intrigues me. I like your take on him and the song is fitting. You showed his relationship with creature well - especially how he treats the elf thus showed why it adored him (quite a contrast on how Sirius treated Kreacher).
On Orion being Kreacher's ultimate master ... I would have though it to be Walburga. I mean Kreacher showed quite a devotion for his mistress in the books.
One thing that needs to be explained although we know Regulus died for that locket, it would have been nice to see an explaination why he didn't do as Voldemort did, and had Kreacher drink the poison. You delved into Regulus thoughts well and the details shone. I just thought this particular detail was missing.
Enjoyed this very much :)Author's Response: Regulus is love. I never really bothered to dig deep into him, but more and more lately, I've been doing just that. Going deeper into characters and picking up on strengths and weaknesses. And yeah, Kreacher is one of my favourites too, little tea-ragged thing.
I would imagine that Orion being the head of the family, having more control over Kreacher - possibly ordering him around more than Walburga had - considering Walburga must've treated him well enough for Kreacher to have so much devotion towards her and rather would have cared less for his higher Master. I suppose just outwardly, it would seem as though Orion was in charge of the whole show.
I think I can answer this. Regulus wanted to suffer for what he had done - Kreacher didn't deserve to suffer again, and Regulus felt horrid when he figured out exactly what Kreacher had been pushed to do in the first place. I would have wanted to suffer for my sins as well, if I were Regulus. I would have felt as though I would have deserved to hear that stuff coming from my family.
Oh thank you thank you thank you, so much nutty imp! Your review made me smile! Report Review
First off, LOVE Queen. Now onto the story itself. It was wonderfully done. Your take on Regulus' last moments were fabulous, especially while he was drinking from the goblet. Didn't really need the author's note at the end...I thought that was all quite obvious. Anyways, I also liked how you portrayed Kreacher in this, fits quite nicely with DH. Great job! Author's Response: Would it be appropriate to say Queen is King? ;D Oh, njhill22, thanks entirely so much. I was so worried about his portrayal, that he was too nice, too worried, too much of a. . . black-sheep like Sirius was. I did want him to be egotistical, but not overdone, and Kreacher - I pity the poor thing. XD Thanks so much! Muchas Gracias, mi amigo! Report Review
Good chapter. It really shows Regulus in a good light, or in a different light. I like it.Author's Response: Different and good light, I would suppose! Thanks so much! Report Review
you've got a lovely style of writing; it flows very nicely-at no point did i feel i was dragging along- and your your choice of descriptions are very good. i especially loved how you used the meaning of Regulus' name, it was clever. Truly, i can't find anything bad to say- it was a lovley, lovely piece. very evocative. :) great job- a 10/10 from meAuthor's Response: Aw, thanks midnightshadow. I took my dear old time researching through DH and Lexicon to get my facts straight, and manage to worm them in there like they're supposed to, while trying to keep my writing style from becoming so blocky.
Thanks so much! I appreciate it, your review makes me smile! Report Review
