In This Valley of Dying Stars by [livejournal.com profile] fiery_flamingo in [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkfest
Andromeda, Narcissa, various Blacks; PG-13, 2037 words
Author's summary: It seems like the Blacks only gather for their dead.
Author's warnings: Character death(s), angst

My comment: "...Whoa. That was powerful. Well done."

Quote:
In a flash of what she then believes is hubris, a twelve-year old Andromeda thinks that more than blood purity or honor this is what her family is: a collection of people obligated to stand over your grave when the time comes, no matter how repulsive or unloved you were in life. They care only by pact, a mutual treaty of mourning. They cry at each others' funerals because no one else will.

These Are the Hells We Crave by [livejournal.com profile] mentalistecbm in [livejournal.com profile] hp_emofest
Regulus/Sirius, NC-17, ~1200 words
Author's summary: Toujours pur, and this is no place for outsiders so we’re fucking keeping this shit in the family.
Author's warnings: incest, but I’d wager that’s pretty obvious.

My comment:
"Toujours pur, and this is no place for outsiders so we’re fucking keeping this shit in the family.

I liked this line a lot. I can just see Regulus's face, grave and resolute.

When Severus almost dies and absolutely everyone knows that Sirius had something to do with it and Slytherin declares fucking war

Oooh, I so hope something like this happened, that Severus had some defenders in the matter at least. Although somehow I see Severus being humiliated by the whole thing and trying to keep it as hush-hush as possible. But yes, this would be lovely, a whole fic prompt in itself. And yet I also love how Regulus is a fierce defender of his own brother and nothing gets in the way of that. It's just how I see Reg - despite everything, brotherly bond wins out."

Quote:
He’s no idea why it started or where it happened, not really; he remembers that it was winter, which makes a strange bit of sense, and that Sirius had worn a black wool coat that evening, had stolen Regulus’ Slytherin scarf, and that he looked so fucking perfect, looked like those colours were where he belonged.

Nowt to Be Afraid Of by [insanejournal.com profile] odogoddess in [insanejournal.com profile] snapelyholidays
Severus, Eileen, mentions of Lily & Harry & Albus; PG, 2840 words
Author's summary: If dreams can be nightmares, can nightmares be mere dreams?

My comment: "That was just delightful all around! Great voice and tone."

Quote:
He sat, grateful for a peaceful night's sleep for a change. He could hear muffled sounds from the kitchen and a nearly forgotten smell he thought of as home and what he'd missed most after he'd grown up and his mother...

Grown up? He studied his arm. It was thin and small. He looked down and noted the rest of his slender, bony body. He lifted the bedcovers and then his nightshirt, allowing the cold in to note his still hairless and lanky boy's body. His hands shook as he dropped his nightshirt and blanket back down.

But I died... didn't I?

I was joking about star names the other day when complaining about Rabastan Lestrange, but I noticed that in the tapestry in the movie there was in fact an Arcturus (one of the stars I mentioned). I wonder if he's actually mentioned in the canon anywhere or if they just made that one up for set dressing?

ETA: There definitely is at least one Arcturus Black, and of course Regulus was middle-named after him. *facepalm*
