Review #1, by AnnaKay The Stand

26th April 2012:
This was done so well! I loved it. Regulus seems to be a really hurt person, and it seems that he had a lot of things. I think it fits in that he did what his family wanted of him, and I also think that it fit in that Kretcher would be the one that would help him realize what he was doing was wrong.

I think that the emotions in this were really great. They seemed to be so real. I loved it a lot! Great job.

Author's Response: Thank you very much! I appreciate your review! (:

First off, I want to say how terribly sorry I am for being late! :P Second, excellent one-shot :D I've never read any fics about Regulus, but this one definitely opened that door to me.

Grammar: Nothing too major. I caught one run-on sentence, and a couple spelling mistakes.

Ex: "He bent down to the house earís large ear..."
Should be "He bent down to the house elf's large ear..."

Other than that, I didn't catch any grammatical mistakes.

Characterization: Well done! I love that Kreacher was 100% cannon - you did amazingly with him. Regulus was excellent as well. I love his internal conflict, his past, and just everything about his character. He's definitely a foil to his brother, and you captured that. I really liked how he needed a purpose to his life, and how he fulfilled it at the end (though I already knew that from the book haha).

Flow: Other than the grammatical mistakes, this flowed very well. Especially the flashbacks while Regulus was drinking the potion - a definite high point. Good job! :D

Interesting-ness: Like I said, I've never read any Regulus stories before, but this really captured my attention. We get a look in Regulus's head before he becomes a martyr, and your writing style really makes the story worthwhile.

All in all, an amazing Regulus one-shot. Again, I love your writing style. Feel free to re-request! Sorry this took so long! Keep up the good work! :D

Author's Response: THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'll be revising it shortly with your review as my basis for things to change, I'm very glad that I got such a constructive review!

Review #3, by Maelody The Stand

10th April 2012:
This story's description is wonderful, and the characterization, in my opinion, is beautiful. The only thing is, I could not get into the beginning. It was well written, with a few words missing here and there, but it just never caught my attention. When Regulus picked Dobby up right before the cave, that was where my attention was finally caught. It was a beautiful story, however, and a wonderful idea to write about. I haven't seen any stories about how Regulus went to the cave. I was confused on what changed him in your story, though. I don't know if it was implied or said, but I didn't catch it.

It was a wonderful story, otherwise, and I really felt for Kreacher. I give this story a 8/10. :)

Author's Response: I understand what you mean, I had no clue what to do for the beginning so my goal was to make it super angsty so it worked.

It was the knowledge of it that really changed him, though I didn't mention it because I thought it was implied. I could've put it in there. Thank you for taking the time to review!

Hey, SamMalfoy93 here.

I love Regulus stories. And I think this character for this challenge was perfect. It;s great to see another's take on his final moments in life, his defining moment. :)

I loved every minute of this. :)


Author's Response: Thank you very much!

Oops. The site logged me out before I could submit :)

But overall this was so heartbreaking. You wrote Regulus wonderfully well and his experience with the horcrux was just heart-breaking.

The flow of the story was good, and the ending line was so powerful when you used the line that he was free. It made so much sense, since how you describe Regulus he seemed like he was carrying a lot of weight.

My favorite line in this was: "He wanted to return to the moment where he didnít know anything but the bliss of hard work and determination and the startling prospect of a future"

Author's Response: Aw, thank you very much!
I'm so glad you took the time to review!
