Gravity…

Regulus had always been your gravity and you weren’t afraid to admit it. He had been your favorite playmate as a child. Growing up as the prim and proper daughter of a death eater and his wife; you had always been pampered. Your father was different with Evan than he was you. They expected other things out of your brother. To your parents, you were their precious little pet. You were the jewel that one night of passion created.

Regulus as no exception to this rule. When Evan would tell you to go away and stop pestering him. Regulus wouldn’t. He would always protest to your brother and let you stay.

He was your first kiss (you wanted to count the fact that both of you were 8 but it didn’t matter.) You were outside in Walburga and Orion’s back garden with Regulus one afternoon. The two of you lay playing with a ladybug that Regulus found. When the bug had vanished, Regulus scooted closer to you.

“I want to kiss you.”

You looked up from your place searching for the M.I.A bug.

“What?”

Regulus smiled.

“I want to kiss you like my daddy kisses my mummy.”

You frowned, considering Regulus’ words. In your little word, boys still had cooties but Regulus was different. He had always been yours.

“Okay.”

You replied as he stood up and pressed an innocent little butterfly kiss to your mouth.

Again…gravity…your world had balance again. You smiled at the memory as you stood with your arms wrapped around Regulus’ shoulders, you didn’t care how long the two of you had been kissing. You had three years’ worth of time to make up for.

Despite what most people thought, it was uncommon for the Black brothers to fight, because ultimately, through everything, all the hatred, the abuse, the neglect from their parents, even through everything their parents put them through, they still loved each other.

Regulus had never cared that Sirius was Gryffindor, unlike anyone else in their family, he was proud of his brother. He loved his brother very much, but with a family like this, he had to pretend he didn’t love him, pretend he was ashamed of him, and that’s the hardest thing Reg has ever had to do, because he didn’t, not in the slightest.

And Sirius had never hated Reg, even when Reg couldn’t stand up to their parents, he still loved his little brother, and maybe that’s why the betrayal hurt so much, even though he knew that Regulus was never a death eater, never really wanted to be, even though he knew that, it hurt.

Seeing the black ink that spread across his brother’s arms made Sirius feel sick, betrayed. Maybe because it was, in a way, Sirius might’ve known the truth, but it was still a betrayal of who Regulus was, and he knew deep down that Regulus couldn’t ever tell their parents the truth, that didn’t mean it didn’t hurt.

Even now, a year later, standing in the astronomy tower with his brother, Sirius just felt betrayed. He knew it wasn’t Regulus’ fault, but he just wished his brother could stand up to his parents, the same way Sirius did before he left. He supposed Regulus never would though, he’d always been too scared about that kind of thing. 

And that’s the moment everything fucks up, because that’s the moment where his little brother steps so close to the edge of the tower Sirius is surprised he’s still standing there “Reg-” Sirius tries to say before the younger boy is interrupting him “Sirius don’t- just don’t” and for a movement Sirius isn’t sure what his brother means, but then as if he’d read his mind Regulus continues “don’t tell me to step away- don’t - don’t fucking tell me everything will be okay because it won’t!” by this point tears are streaming down the boy’s face. 

“I-I can help you but I need you to come away from the edge- just please move away, Reg” and that’s the moment the fear turned into anger, an emotion all too well known by the Blacks. His wand is drawn, pointed at Sirius and neither boy is sure exactly what his next move is going to be.

“I’ll hex you” Regulus warns “not if I hex you first” the older boy responds. Even though they’d never actually hurt each other, their threats weren’t exactly empty. That was the moment things really changed as a green light shot from the younger’s wand, missing Sirius by inches “Reg- I-” Sirius really was lost for words now. 

Sirius was hurt and so was Regulus, they didn’t even have to share words to understand why that colour emitted from the wand. “They put you up to this, didn’t they?” Sirius didn’t really need an answer though. Regulus nodded slightly, so slightly Sirius hardly saw it. 

Less spine chilling colours were shot at the Gryffindor, he did his best to dodge them. “Reg, stop please just stop” Sirius was desperate now. Regulus had angry tears streaming down his face “fight back, you coward just fight back” 

Fighting back was the last thing Sirius wanted to do. “Sirius just do it” his voice was timid yet fearless, Sirius knew what the boy meant. “Please” came from a moment of desperation, but still Sirius refused to. “End me, go on” the boy taunted. Sirius remained silent, hand tightly gripped around the brown wood in his hand. “I’d rather it by your hands than theirs just do it- please” Sirius would never give in, and maybe that’s where Regulus’ death began. Sirius walked away, without a word, refusing to talk about the incident, and maybe that was the problem, Sirius pretended it never happened, and maybe, just maybe if he hadn’t his brother wouldn’t have died.

Regulus lay several inches below the surface of the water as you ran down to him.

“Reggie! No, no, no…Regulus wake up. Reggie, come back.”

You reached into the water enough to wrap your hands around the lapels of his vest and yanked hard. When his eyes snapped open, you screamed. Where your lover’s gorgeous eyes had once been was milky, cloudy, and white.

Inferius…your husband was dead and now replaced with a zombie-like monster. The moment that you tried to pull away his hand reached up and wrapped around your wrist. You thrashed backward trying to pull away.

“Let go! Let go!”

You screamed. No matter how much you tried, Regulus pulled harder. The moment you fell into the lake you inhaled and tried to kick hard. You had to keep your head above water. With each kick, Regulus’ grip increased until his arms were around you fully. He pulled you further and further down into the murky water of the lake. You wanted to scream at the blank ghostly expression on his face.

“Regulus, stop! You’ll kill me!”

You screamed internally as your lungs began to ache with the need to breathe. Reaching out, you tugged hard on Regulus’ curls as they floated around his head.

“Reggie.”

You whined again as the world began to fade to black…

You snapped awake the moment that there was a knock on your door. Sitting up, you were drenched with sweat and panting. That dream again! That blasted dream that haunted your sleep every night since Regulus died.

“Mistress are you awake?”

Barty and Regulus’ first kiss

image

The HP fandom has so little art on this pairing that I had to do my bit. x

Barty never knew how to express his feelings properly. Especially feelings of affection and love. He was never taught this in the parental home, because he was never a beloved son. Unlike Regulus Black.

They had been best friends since their early years at Hogwarts. At some point, their friendship became so strong that much more complex feelings began to arise in their hearts. They showed them differently, of course.

Regulus didn’t reject them, but didn’t openly show them either. Though his gaze lingered longer, and he sought more touches.

Barty didn’t want to understand and accept what he was feeling, so he pretended, even for himself, that there was nothing.

Feelings and tension accumulated not finding the proper outlet until they reached a critical point. For the first time, Barty Crouch could no longer hide them in himself.

He didn’t know what was happening to him and how to express what he was feeling. So, he did it in his own aggressive and toxic way…

…with the threats of the Cruciatus and an unhealthy desire to have complete control over Regulus through Imperius.

Regulus Black x OC: PS OC, Plus Size OC

Chapter One 

Chapter Three Coming Soon

—————————————-


The drive there took longer than either of them would have liked and when they came to a stop, she turned to him.

“Just sit here in the car for a second ok?” she said and hopped out.

He watched the half naked woman go to the door where she spoke to it animatedly for a second before it opened to reveal James Potter.

James peered at the car for a second before looking back and what Regulus knew was his sister in law.

He doubted very seriously that this muggle cabbie knew exactly who she’d brought to their doorstep but he knew James would know.

James gave a curt nod and she ran back to the car and opened the door for him.

“Come on.” she said, helping him stand and baring most of his weight on her.  "He’s letting Lily know now. Let’s get you inside.“

His blood was getting all over her semi bare chest and he noticed her tense a little as they finally crossed the threshold.

He honestly wasn’t surprised to be met with several wands pointed at him.

"Oi!” she snapped at none other than Remus Lupin.  "Get that thing out of my face! You know I don’t like it!“

"Sorry.” the tall lad said but didn’t bother to listen.  "Can’t be too careful.“

She growled, "I’ve already told you lot.  He’s fine.   If he’d had any nefarious intentions, I’d have smelled it on him.  Now move! Where’s my sister?”

Regulus looked at her strangely but couldn’t focus on it very much.

As if on cue, none other that Lily Potter, formerly known as Lily Evans, burst into the room with a box of supplies.

The cabbie settled him on the couch and stood up only to be yanked back behind someone.

“Sirius Black! I’ve told you about that!” she snapped.

Regulus looked up to see his older brother staring down at him with hatred in his stormy gray eyes.

He rounded on her, “You do realize that you’ve just brought a Death Eater in this house right?!  With everything going on?!  And you could’ve been killed! I told you to stay away from anyone who had that mark!”

“You betta get out of my face, Sirius.” she growled at him, shoving him back.  "I told you I don’t like that shit.“

Lily set to work on Regulus’ wound with a kind but admittedly forced smile, "Hello, Regulus.”

“Hi..” he said, far too distracted with everything going on and the fact that he was literally dying right there.

“What happened?” she pressed. “I need to know what it was, so I can treat it.”

“Inferi.” he said.  "It’s a long story.“

Sirius and the woman stopped bickering for a moment so Sirius could look at him.

"What were you doing with Inferi?” he snapped.

“Betraying Voldemort and likely sealing my death.” Regulus seethed right back at his brother.

They stared each other down for a moment before Sirius turned back to the girl, “And just what the hell were YOU doing around Inferi, Sunny?  You could’ve been killed!”

Regulus narrowed his eyes at the name.  

So her name was Sunny.

“I was doing my job, Sirius!” she snapped. “He hailed a cab, I pulled up and drove away.  That’s kind of how it works.  Or are you so thick you can’t grasp the concept of a cabbie?”

Sirius growled at her and she actually hissed at him.

James stepped in between them and faced his sister in law.

Her emerald eyes had turned into an eerie pale green color and Regulus noted with horror that fangs had protruded from her mouth.

“Sunny, when’s the last time you’ve fed?” he pressed.

“I’m fine, Jamie. Get off.” she snapped. “I’m just pissed at the dog who think he can tell me what to do.”

Sirius mumbled something about a blood sucking bitch and she launched herself at him.

Remus and James managed to pull her off and Lily finally snapped.

“Sunflower Louise Evans!” she said. “Get out of this room right now! Remus, take her to the kitchen and get the pack out of the freezer! Now!”

“Get off!” Sunny seethed. “I’m fine! I’ll get it myself! I’m going!”

Remus still followed her into the kitchen.

James grabbed Sirius rather roughly and began to drag him up the stairs but not before glancing at Lily.

“Are you going to be ok, love?”

Lily rolled her eyes, “He’s nearly dead, James.  I’m fine.”

Regulus chuckled darkly, “Thanks for that vote of confidence.”

Lily smirked and shrugged, “Eh, I can heal you.  But your no match for anyone at the moment.  Besides I’d say anything to get him to get your brother out of my hair.”

Regulus chuckled, wincing at the movement.

“You’ll be alright, Regulus.” she assured him.  "But we will have a lot of questions and you won’t be allowed to leave.  I hope you understand that.“

He nodded, "I know.  And I’ll answer whatever.  You can use veritaserum if you need to.  I’ll tell you whatever.  I hadn’t exactly planned on living through this anyway.”

“So what happened?” she pressed.  

“He’s awful, Lily.” he said.  "The Dark Lord.   I knew about all the pureblood madness.  I was raised that way and I never questioned it because of my parents.  Even though I knew it was wrong.  But this… what he’s willing to do.  It’s insanity.  It’s evil.  I couldn’t… I just couldn’t.“

She nodded, "Glad you’ve finally seen the light. Have you-?”

“Severus is fine.” he supplied.  "I don’t know if you still talk or not but he’s alright.  I think.. I think he’s caught on to a lot as well.   He may even be working as a spy for the other side.  I can’t be sure and when I realized things myself I didn’t dare ask just in case I were to jeapordize it.“

She just nodded and continued to mend him while feeding him potion after potion.

They sat in silence for a while, unaware of Sirius and James who hid just out of sight at the top of the stairs listening.

"Ok, so I think most of the damage is done.  The potions will heal some of the internal damage.  I’m just having a bit of trouble getting the blood to clot.” she said.

“I can help with that.”

The two of them looked to the door to see Sunny there, now donning Remus’ flannel to cover her, looking a little less worse for wear.

Lily lifted an eyebrow at her sister, “Do you think you can handle it?”

She snorted, flicking her ginger locks from her face, “Witch, please.”

Lily rolled her eyes at her younger sister but moved as she made her way over and knelt beside him.

Regulus noted that she smelled incredibly sweet but there was an unmistakable scent of metallic.

He first thought it was his own blood but after piecing together what he’d seen and seeing her now… he deduced that she was a vampire.

“Now, might sting just a bit.” she warned and he furrowed his brows at her as she drew closer.

His eyes widened when she bit into his shoulder around the massive wound.

Panic overtook him for a second before a wave of bliss unlike anything he’d ever felt before washed over him.

A few moments passed before she pulled back and he was left in a haze.

She was positively radiant in that moment- looked like a goddess.

She licked his blood off her lips and turned to her sister.

“There.” she said. “The venom will force the healing process and make it clot.”

She stood from the floor and headed towards the kitchen again, “Oh, and by the way, he’s telling the truth.”

Regulus furrowed his eyebrows at that before sleep overtook him.

——-

Hello, my loves! I hope you enjoyed this new update to the story! I’d love to hear from you! What you liked, what you’d like to see happen! How do you feel about Sunny?  How do you feel about the obvious tension between she and Sirius?  I’d love to hear your thoughts, loves! 

All my love darlings!

Kenny

Regulus Black x OC: PS OC, Plus Size OC

———————-

Regulus had only just managed to destroy the horcrux and escape with his life.

Barely.

He had just enough strength to apparate to the closest muggle town.

Any further and he feared he’d be lynched and considering the current state of him… he didn’t think he could survive that.

He wasn’t exactly planning on surviving this whole ordeal.

It had been a suicide mission and he knew it but he’d gone anyway because regardless of his upbringing and joining the Death Eaters…he soon saw what Voldemort was about and exactly how far he’d go to achieve them.

He just couldn’t stand behind someone like that.

He eventually managed to hail a cabbie and it pulled up beside him and he quickly got in.

“Ello, there.” came a chipper voice from inside as Regulus winced trying to remain upright. “Where to- bloody hell, lad! What happened to you?”

“Nevermind.” Regulus said, ignoring her and staring out the window. “Just get me out of here.”

“Alright.” she said. “The nearest hospital is just over on High Street.  I can get you there in a flash.”

“No hospitals.” he snapped.

“Eh, I dunno mate, you’re bleeding like crazy.” she said taking another turn.

“Just let me out.” he said losing his patience with her.

“Just hold on a second.” she finally put the car in park and turned around to look at him from the front seat.  "Look, if you’re in trouble and you can’t necessarily be in public, it’s alright.  But I can’t just let you out like that.  You look near dead, love.“

She sighed for a second before she caught a glimpse of his wand sticking out.

Regulus followed her eyes and internally groaned.

He did not have the patience or the strength to deal with this or obliviate her at the moment.

He grabbed the handle, just ready to dive out, even though he knew it was going to hurt.

"Wait, just listen.” she said.  "I’m assuming by that bit of wood there that you’re a wizard- oh wow, that actually sounded quite dirty.  Pardon me, wasn’t trying to be a tart.  I just meant, the stick bit there. “

Regulus stared at her incredously unsure whether to laugh or just gawk at her in disbelief.

"My sister has one as well. A wand.  She’s a witch.  I’m not.  But she works at a place called St. Mungo’s as a healer.  Which I’m guessing is a bit like what I’d call a nurse.”  she said.  "She’ll help you if I ask her.  I know she will.  Just let me take you to her and she’ll get you on the mend.“

"I said no hospitals.” he snapped.

“Well, don’t get your knickers in a twist!” she snapped back. “I didn’t say hospital did I?  We can go to her house, you git! Honestly, and she wonders why I refuse to date anyone anymore.”

“Fine.” he sighed as he did actually start to become quite light headed.  

“Alright.” she said before climbing in the back seat with him.

“Hold on!” he said as she literally grabbed her shirt by the collar and ripped it in half. “What are you doing?”

“Oh, calm down.” she said rolling her eyes. “I’m not trying to have my way with you.  I’m gonna attempt to make you a tourniquet until we get there.”

Near dead or not, Regulus did actually still have a pulse and he couldn’t help but gulp as he took in the sight of this clearly blessed woman beside him.

She was quite plump and looked incredibly soft.

He forced his eyes away as she gently turned his arm over.

He noticed she hesistated for just a moment and he followed her eyes to the dark mark that stained his arm.

“Do you know what that is?” he asked her.

“No.” She admitted, tying the ripped fabric around his shoulder. “Not really.  But I’m guessing it’s not good.”

“It’s not.” he said. “But I don’t stand by what it means.  Not anymore.”

She nodded and climbed back in the front seat before putting the car in drive and speeding off.

“Who’s your sister?” he asked curiously.

She glanced at him in the mirror.

“Her name is Lily.” she said and Regulus froze.

That’s when he realized.

The red hair.

The striking green eyes.

No, they certainly weren’t twins….but there was no denying the relation now that he knew.

This was the sister of Lily Potter.

Secrets Part 2

Harry Potter AU 

Pairings: Regulus Black x Reader 

Link to Chapter 1 

Rating M- trigger warning 

Credit: Song at the beginning: The Suffering by Coheed and Cambria 

______

Is there a word or right to say
Even in this old-fashioned way?
Go make your move, girl, I’m not coming home

Would things have changed if I could’ve stayed?
Would you have loved me either way?
Dressed to the blues, day to day, with my collar up

Decision sits, so make it quick
A breath inhaled from an air so sick
I cursed the day I had learned of the web you spun

If it was up to me
I would’ve figured you out
Way before the year clocked out
Oh, I hope you’re waiting

If it was up to me
I would’ve never walked out
So until the sun burns out
Oh, I hope you’re waiting

Arriving back at James and Lily’s, you ignored the looks of worry that was on your friend’s faces. You walked to the refrigerator in search of a drink. Maybe all of you could go to bed and no one would remember what happened.

“So are we going to talk about what happened?”

James asked. Sirius nodded.

“Yeah, I am curious myself. Why my brother? He’s a scary dude. Well, not really scary, more like a punk but here we are.”

You turned and gave him a frown.

“Yeah, here we are.”

You muttered as Remus stood up.

“I deserve some information. Regulus Black is pissed at me. I hope voodoo dolls don’t work because I will be seriously fucked!”

You had to admit. Remus was the right one here. The poor guy was the one hell of a night!

“Fine, Regulus and I have been dating for a while. He didn’t want to tell anyone because of the little shop of horrors that he was born into. I got sick of the secrecy and wanted an actual relationship. We had some words. I told him to man up and act more like Sirius.”

“So their leader, Lord Voldemort—”

“Sorry, who?” asked Regulus, the unfamiliar name jerking him out of his daydream. 

“Lord Voldemort. The name doesn’t matter—”

“I should think it does matter,” Regulus said archly. “There is no Voldemort family in the Sacred Twenty-Eight - what even is that, French? - and there are no pureblood Lords, either. Not any more.” 

“It doesn’t matter,” Evan insisted, “because Lord Voldemort is the last remaining descendant of Salazar Slytherin.” 

Regulus blinked, his mouth gaping in astonishment. Evan leaned back against his plumped-up pillows and looked mightily pleased with himself. The last descendant of Salazar Slytherin…? How… how was that even possible? Regulus rifled through his mind, trying to recall the pages of Nature’s Nobility and the family trees painstakingly reproduced there. 

“So… he’s a Gaunt?” Regulus asked.

“A what? No— Voldemort, I told you.”

“But the Gaunts were the last remaining descendants - at least, I think they were…” Regulus said, a little unsure. “And I don’t think Slytherin ever went to France - although there was something, in America… a grand-daughter? Great-grand-daughter…?”

“Stop over-thinking this,” said Evan, rubbing his hands over his face in exasperation. “It doesn’t matter what family he came from—”

“How can you say that?!” 

“It doesn’t matter because he’s a parselmouth.” 

Regulus gasped. He slumped down onto the edge of Evan’s bed, forgetting all about his mud-splattered Quidditch uniform and his aches and bruises in the face of this impossible news. A parselmouth! Everyone knew that all of Slytherin’s descendants possessed that rarest of magical abilities… Could it be true?

“And,” said Evan, his eyes glinting in the dim light. 

Regulus leaned forwards, eager. “And…?” 

“And he opened the Chamber of Secrets.” 

Regulus froze, utterly spellbound. Goosebumps prickled up the back of his neck and along his arms. Had Evan’s father been involved in that, too? Had his own father? Surely not - surely Orion would have told Regulus about it by now, if he had…? Surely there would be some evidence, some souvenir— oh, but imagine his parents’ faces, when they found out that he had joined this group! This group whose leader was the last living descendant of Salazar Slytherin and had opened the Chamber of Secrets! They would be so thrilled - so proud. 

“But how did he do it…?” Regulus asked, his voice appropriately hushed.

“I don’t know, they never told me. Maybe they don’t know. Maybe Lord Voldemort will only tell one person. His heir. The next Heir of Slytherin.”

“Does he have a son?” 

Evan shrugged. “Nobody knows. Maybe he’ll choose the most worthy of his followers.”
