Hello! I'm here for our swap! (There are so many things I want to start reading here -- I'll have to come back and look around some more.)
I'm completely fangirling Regulus most currently, so I thought that this would be most appropriate. Besides, I can't resist the brotherly dynamic between Regulus and Sirius as kids.
First of all, I adore Regulus' hesitance to enter Sirius' room, knowing that Sirius will be angry with him and yet still feels the need to see Sirius anyway -- it's sweet. Similarly, I really liked the idea that Sirius immediately demanded that his brother leave his room (aye, I have siblings, I completely understand this) but stops when he notices that Regulus has been crying.
I also really enjoyed the way his friends had influenced the 'bedtime story' that he told Regulus, which spurred a conversation about prejudices and how their parents (their father, namely) weren't always right (which, I think, is something that Regulus is needing to be aware of. I also think it's incredibly sweet that Regulus is so concerned about Sirius and his father. Poor Reggie.
Of course Sirius draws a parallel between himself and the evil vampire who only sought out the most attractive women ;) . I adore that this ended in tickling! :D I thought you handled the brothers nicely -- I'd like to think that they were close once, before everything went down.
So, this was absolutely, incredibly adorable <3! Thank you so much for the swap!
Hello, Rumpel! Finally here to reply to your reviews! Sorry for the long wait...
I can't blame you, Regulus is amazing! :) I should write him more, now that I think about it... And yes, I love their brother dynamics too! :)
Ahahah! I'm glad you found it sweet! I don't have siblings (unfortunately) but I like to imagine that Sirius would want to protect his brother, despite being annoyed at him. :P
Glad you liked the werewolf story, and the discussion about prejudice that followed. Yes, Regulus needed to hear that. And yes, poor Reg, indeed. I think it was really hard on you to see his brother and his parents constantly fighting...
Ahahah! Sirius is Sirius, what can I say? :P Glad you liked the tickling part as well! :)
Thank you so much for the lovely review, I'm so glad you found the story sweet and that you thought I handed the siblings' relationship well!
I will be back to reply to your reviews on Liar soon!
Good evening and what is this I spy?
A new story by Chiara, the apple of my eye?
Ooh, don't mind if I do, my dear!
Reading anything by you I have nothing to fear!
AW! Baby Black Brothers! (That's my favourite band...) But seriously, they are so sweet!
Ha ha oh my god I love it so much. Regulus asking "why" all the time. I had a little boy with a squeaky voice in my head - it's so cute!
And this: "Hey! Where did you learn that language?"
"From you." - That is perfectamundo. Ha ha and how does Regulus know so much about staking vampires, may I ask?! But that vampire story sure was sweet. I love this brotherly love!
I wish Sirius would tell me a bedtime story... If you know what I mean... ;)
I know I can always count on you for an incredible Marauder fic and again you do not disappoint! I have told you before and I will tell you again - how dare you feel self-conscious?! Everything you post is amazing and magical and you know we don't bite... *again thinking of Sirius in bed*
*ahem* I better go now. Love you!
♥ ♥ ♥
Aww... Bianca... *wub*
I don't deserve your kindness!!!
Baby Black Brothers! Definitely my favourite band too!!! :D Glad you found them sweet!
Now that you're asking, Regulus seems very informed on the subject... Maybe he saw a documentary or something... Do Purebloods see documentaries? :P
Ahahah! I guess you're not the only one who would like it! Sirius is quite fascinating, isn't he?
I have little confidence... Can't help it... Thank you so much for all your praises! You are awesome!!!
Love you so much!
een meaning to ever since I read this and went OMG THIS IS SUCH A WONDERFUL IDEA YOU ARE SO AWESOME CHIARA!
Sirius Regulus almost break my heart here... I mean, they're so lovely, and I can just picture little Reg and Sirius being the big brother. DArn, why did things have to turn out the way they did?
Poor Reg, getting yelled at by Sirius, but hey, Sirius was being the bratty elder sibling we all know he is quite capable of being. Do I love him any less after that? No, but I definitely love Reg more. His reaction to Reg wanting a story was priceless - I could just see him looking att deadpanned LOL! Reluctant elder brother Sirius is the cutest (blush) I think it was awesome that Sirius adressed the age-old pure-blood prejudice against werewolves in this story. And of course Reg learns to swear from Sirius. That's becoming my headcanon!
It was just so sweet to see them bonding as brothers... and implicating him as the vampire who liked girls, with an annoying brother - so many insinuations to Sirius' image as a serial heartbreaker! Loved every dialogue!
Also, werewolves and vampires may come and go, but the Tickle monster is the most effective with little kids!
Love love love love this, and I don't know if I have done a good job in telling you how much in my sleep-deprived state, but I'm going to come back for more. Ooh, who are you going to do next? The Weasley clan? Bet they'll have enough siblind duo combinations to fill up a novel! :p
Loads of love my dear beta,
Aw... you are too lovely... Thank you so much for this amazing surprise review!!!
Yes, I know... It's so sad if you think about what will come later on... but let's not dwell on it right now, alright?
Ahahah! That's how older siblings are, right? They need to show that they are cooler and have no time to lose with their younger siblings, but in the end they would do anything to protect them. At least, that's what I like to think. I'm an only child, so I can't know for sure...
I believe Sirius would want his little brother to see past their family's prejudices. So that was only natural. Glad you liked that bit, though!
Ahahah! Yes, there was so much Sirius in the evil vampire! ;)
Ah, yes... the Tickle monster... that is a scary creature!!! :P
Aww... *blushing* Have I said thank you enough? How are you so ssweet, little Betee?
Ahahah! The Weasleys will definitely appear.
Actually, at the moment I have on my laptop a finished (but in need of huge editing) James/Albus/Lily and two other that I started but I'm quite stuck with (a Albus/Aberforth/Ariana and a Black sisters)
I'll let you know when I have news (I might ask you to give a look before posting, actually...)
Love you, little Betee!
I'm transferring reviews and I totally thought I'd reviewed this one before, but I clearly haven't because it's not posted anywhere else and doesn't have any reviews! But I swear I've read it. *shrugs* I don't know what happened. Anyway, this is an adorable moment between Sirius and Regulus, and Sirius' story made me laugh. (the first one particularly, and it's abrupt end and then Regulus picking up bad language from Sirius ahaha! And his interruption about the correct wood to stake a vampire, what a smartass :P ) I love the way you write the two of them and how they interact. They seem so real - and I love how it shows they were close as kids, regardless of what happened later. Adorable. I would write more in this review but I have like 929 more reviews to transfer while I have internet, so... just know that I loved it. Ciao :P
You did review this already, it was one of the reviews you left as Remus for Secret Valentine! (Btw, did I mention how much I love those? Almost as much as I love you!) Of course, it was my fault for posting this as a one shot in a series and changing the title... :P
I'm so glad you loved this moment of brotherly love between Sirius and Regulus! I love those two!
Ahahah! The first story was so bad! (Well, the content was interesting, but the story-telling needed improvement... :P) And yes, Regulus did pick up bad language from Sirius!!! :D And I'm glad you find it amusing the way Reg kept interrupting and correcting Sirius! :P
I'm so glad you enjoyed reading this and that you liked their interactions and found them believable and sweet!
No worries if you can't stay longer, thank you so much for stopping by!
Ciao cara! :)
