Aww! It's over. Now that I've finished reading, it seems so short, even though it's the longest fanfic I've ever read. And you know what? I'm reasonably sure it's my favourite, or pretty darn close. Thank you for taking me on this adventure! I'll be checking out your other stories shortly. Cheerio! :D Report Review
First Anthony. Then Topher and Elizabeth. You obviously hate my fangirling feels. xD
Just so you know, this is my second review for this story; and it shan't be my last. I've never reviewed more than once for a story, but this one is special for three reasons. 1) It's the first and only Regulus fanfic I've ever read. 2) It's epical. 3) I was looking for a Reg fanfic and this exactly fit the bill of what I was looking for.
Thank you so much for writing this! :DAuthor's Response: Well thank you for all of that, MagykNargle. I had to call you by the name because it's adorable okay. A serious lack of Regulus-centric fanfics is how I ended up writing this. As my second favorite character in the entire series it depressed me how under-represented he was.
I'm glad that you're enjoying the story and thank you for the reviews!! ^_^ --Jenna Report Review
I don't usually review, but I figured this time I should. I'm SO sad you killed off Anthony. I mean, I sort of saw it coming, but it's still awful. I love this story so far, though! It's really well-written, even if the chapters are a smidge short. I will continue reading now. Cheers! :DAuthor's Response: Well thank you for taking time to review! It was hard killing him off, it really was. Probably one of the harder scenes I've ever written. ;__;
Thank you again. --Jenna Report Review
Tied up so well! Not leading in directly to the end, but lingering just before it. Amazing.Author's Response: Thank you! Considering JK already told us everything about the cave scene, I felt like it would be just filler to even write it. Plus, emotionally, I couldn't sit down and write out Regulus' actual death. Not after spending two years with him being so important to me.
Thank you for all of your reviews and thank you for reading! --Jenna Report Review
I love that you connect these chapters and it comes full circle! So well done! (:Author's Response: Thank you! ^_^ --Jenna Report Review
So close to the end! I did not expect Orion to die before Regulus at all. But I guess it kind of makes sense with Reg going even more crazy. It doesn't exactly help with his mental state...Author's Response: Yeah, JK didn't assign actually days for either of their deaths, and I felt like having Orion go first would sort of be a nice catalyst. Plus the way Sirius always mentioned them, it felt to me like the dad was the first to go and Walburga was left alone to go slightly mad without her husband or children. --Jenna Report Review
This is so interesting. I'm loving this full-fledged crazy Regulus. I'm really glad you brought Anthony back like this.Author's Response: Thank you so much. I knew it was a risky move, so I'm glad that people have reacted so well to it. ^_^ --Jenna Report Review
Reg is really losing his mind this time...Author's Response: Yes he is! --Jenna Report Review
What? Barty! As much as I hate to say it, I knew something like this would happen. It would have been to easy for them o run off together without any problems. I can' wait to finish this!Author's Response: Yeah, it was inevitable. After all, Barty did go on to win heavy favor with Voldemort. As sad as it is, Regulus and Barty might have actually been dysfunctionally happy together if they ran away. --Jenna Report Review
I loved this one! Will and Regulus's relationship always interested me (however bad it was) so I'm so glad you touched upon it once last time. (:Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm glad that you liked it. ^_^ --Jenna Report Review
Orion and Regulus's relationship is so well portrayed. It's sad, but kind of sweet. So good. (:Author's Response: Thank you so much! Their interactions were some of the hardest scenes, emotionally, to write. --Jenna Report Review
I loved Lily being in this chapter!Author's Response: Thank you. She was a lot of fun to write. ^_^ --Jenna Report Review
This is absolutely brilliant! I have got to sleep but I can't stop reading. The fact that James was there regardless and that everything fit together so perfectly is heartbreaking but so believable and fitting.Author's Response: Thank you so much ^_^ --Jenna Report Review
That bit about the nameplate was absolutely perfect. Such a small but obviously important detail really made the chapter! Also, I love that your chapters have a bit of everything in them- action, romance, relationships, etc. It's great.Author's Response: Thank you! --Jenna Report Review
Oh gosh, what an excellent twist once again! The way you write this is so smooth and subtle but still incredibly heart wrenching and believable. I'm so in awe.Author's Response: Thank you! ^_^ --Jenna Report Review
I know I've said this before but Bartemius is really growing on me. I don't even know which bits I love most because it is all so good.Author's Response: Thank you!! I'm fond of him myself, hehe. ;) --Jenna Report Review
I love that you keep connecting this to Macbeth- it's so well executed. And your portrayal of relationships- so perfect. Complex and heartbreaking and so interesting! Gahh.Author's Response: Thank you! Macbeth was the inspiration for this so I loved being able to sneak it in. ^_^ --Jenna Report Review
I'm so happy there was a flashback! I love those parts.
Also, I totally forgot I started reading this and was really in love with it. I feel kind of bad that I forgot about it. How could I?? It's so good!Author's Response: Hehe well thank you!! I'm glad you came back. ^_^ --Jenna Report Review
Funnily enough, when you said in the story their hand lingered longer, I was thinking they were showing signs of being gay.Author's Response: Well there is a slash warning on the story.
So it wasn't meant to be sneaky. :) --Jenna Report Review
I know that this Ravenclaw is going to be a Death Eater. It's very obvious. Anyways, nice chapter. Regulus' Sirius problem (problem? idk) is quite unerving.Author's Response: Death Eater? Hmm, we'll see.
He has issues with Sirius throughout the story. :( --Jenna Report Review
Well, I'm a Regulus fan to be honest. Elizabeth is getting on my damn nerves!Author's Response: Haha, girls tend to do that sometimes. ;) --Jenna Report Review
I looked up mild panic anxiety attack and I realized I just had one a minute ago O_OAuthor's Response: omg I hope you're alright.
I've never had them, but I researched them a lot for this and they sound horrid. --Jenna Report Review
Really good at using the last names well. Awesome job.Author's Response: Thanks! I really wanted to work canon characters in, not flood it with OCs. ^_^ --Jena Report Review
This was such a good chapter. I consider myself a Slytherin...and well.i kinda feel bad for the way we behave sometimes. This chapter made me realize our weaknesses.Author's Response: Thank you.
And as a Slytherin myself, I totally get what you mean! --Jenna Report Review
This is great! I've read this story right from the beginning, and I can safely say it's my favorite story ive read (apart from, of course, Harry Potter itself *bows down to J.K.Rowling*) and it also gave me the idea for the story I'm currently writing. Amazing work, you really capted the essence of Regulus.Author's Response: Well thank you so much. I'm glad that you enjoyed my story and thank you for taking the time to review! ^_^
I'm also glad that you found it inspirational, but please remember that anything not canon was of my own creation. Names, personalities, character quirks, events in the plot, etc. So finding your own style and story lines is always best. :)
Thank you again. --Jenna Report Review
