Fanfiction Review

So I have started doing fanfiction recommendation or reviews because that’s what I do most of the time, read fanfiction  and I would love to share the amazing stories I have read/ am reading/will be reading with everyone who loves fanfiction like I do. They are free, as good as published books and honestly finding more readers that I can discuss my favorite fanfictions with is a never ending life goal.

Review:

Ragsweas’ “Untold Story” is a Harry Potter fanfiction that tells us the tale of Regulus Black’s change of heart. Written from the perspective of Regulus, this one shot manages to capture his voice and emotions fairly well despite the few grammatical errors it has. Being a one-shot the story does contain time skips from one point to another but the scenes are weaved well together. The characters of both Regulus and Sirius are almost on point as are the actions and voice of the older Blacks and Kreacher. The Dark Lord has been written perfectly.
The dialogues are well developed. This is an in-universe telling of events, which leads to a lack of actions yet that does not harm the story telling much. The realistic characters, the progress of Regulus’ character at a genuine speed and with reasons that make a lot of sense as well as the writing style together make the fanfiction a brilliant read in a short amount of time, especially for Regulus fans. While the room for improvement always remains, this fanfiction certainly has its own charm and beautifully shows us Regulus Black’s journey to RAB.
The fanfiction was also a part of the QL contest and was rated a nine point five out of ten. Reviews have called it an in-depth telling of Regulus’ change of heart.

Summary-

We all know what happened when Harry and Dumbledore went into the cave to retrieve the locket. But what about Regulus? What was his story? How did the feel? One-Shot is written for QLFC Round 9

Siren Song

Eyes that entrap senses,

A violet swirling demise,

Surging like a storm,

Clashing likes waves forbidden,

In a tango so beautiful, so hidden,

Like desire, Like demise,

As one their voices rise.

The waters, dark and deep,

Swirl with all their majesty and mystique.

Their voices a chorus of longing,

A beacon of hope and love,

They sing to your inner demons,

Words to soothe a wounded soul.

Oh! Feel the pull,

Wisdom’s words alone,

They are an anchor,

And life a swirling storm.

Passion fills wide,

Eyes glazed,

Jump! Jump! Jump!

Their vices rise,

Quenching and filling they guide,

Not a rock in sight.

See, Come, Hear, Taste, Feel!

One tastes the tang of a lover’s lips,

Another a long lost hand in theirs feel.

One hears an old dead voice sing,

Another a vision clothed in beauty sees.

Their whisper in your ears,

Deceptive voices building on your dream,

Matching, and marching, and singing,

Forward! Forward! Forward!

You forewarned fool.

Leaving behind safety,

You impale yourself on rocks hefty,

Water replacing air,

Yet you remain lost in their majesty.

Unseeing eyes catching a glimpse of blue skies,

Earns still ringing with lies.

Some hear a mother sing,

Another fall in love with a luminous being.

They feast on your dead, drowned remains,

Float you to them,

Their songs never wane.

A steady rise,

Never a flattering falter,

Never a waver, nor a fall

They call you to your demise.

Singing as the death toll does rise.

But, oh lost soul,

Is there a better way to go?

To die?

What better than another chance to fall, to say goodbye?

Feel the pull! Jump! Forward! Jump! Fall!

Feel love, hope and glory,

Even as you, meet an end gory.

Laugh, love and live,

Last moments with beautiful lies they fill.

With mercy and hope, they kill.

Come oh! Weary traveler,

Sail these seas,

Follow the siren song,

Let it fill your heart,

With its numbered beats.

The glamour! The allure!

Death waits,

In arms beautiful.

Fill your ears with lies,

Dreams unending in dead eyes.
