Whoa. An angsty piece about Regulus. Me likes. He seems a bit overlooked in the fanfic department, doesn't he? Especially considering he's sort of perfect fanfic material... just enough information to base a character off of, significant tie-in to major characters and historical elements of the plot (smell a time travel fic, anyone?), and sympathy-inducing tragic background. So yeah, I'm surprised there's not more fics involving Regulus.
Thank you for writing!

Because this is a beauty, a wonderful, thoughtful story, I'm reviewing.
Characterization and portrayal - totally mind-blowing. It totally captures the hidden depths of the Black household - and it totally makes sense. For no matter what, Sirius is the brightest star of the family, the white, and is even more outstanding that even when he's a shame, he's an achievement - and all Regulus can do is stand in that bright shine's shadow.
It's so sad, truly...
I'd say more, but it's freaking midnight, and if I could even sing praises at the moment - yeah. Sorry, but I need sleep.

I really like how Regulus keeps recieving contradictory messages from his parents in regards to his behaviour - they want him to be obedient, but when he is they want him to stand up for himself - it's kind of like how most people's parents are. I also like how he has contradictory feelings towards his brother - admiring and resenting him - and I find it really sad that he tries so hard when Sirius just seems to breeze through life.

Great fic! I liked the "bitter irony" that Regulus sees in the tacit way he's compared to Sirius.

Ah, poor Regulus...I quite like him even though in the canon, there's very little info on him.
Anyway, I liked this.

ah yes, the joys of being a Black. I rather pitied poor Regulus. Sirius was always the star.

Wonderful, I love it!

Aww,poor Regulus! Very well written little character study, I especially like the bit where his father is telling him to grow a backbone (like Sirius). It's how I picture the Blacks to be ( - not very nice people!)

Aww . . . I'm sure this was so true.
It's like the story about Regulus I wrote, only about 14 chapters shorter, lol . . . _
