too bad it isnt even good omg

Tired and can’t sleep so here’s some Regulus HC

-Reg hates the color green.
- he’s got a huge association with it and the shit he’s survived
-when he moved in with Sirius, Remus, and James after he ran away from Grimauld Place before his last year of school, he began to associate red with safety, and family
-The first time Reg wakes up screaming from a night terror James is the first one in his room to check on him
-Sirius and Remus are close behind
-none of them leave him that night
-this is Reg’s first cuddle puddle, he’s overwhelmed by it, but also has never felt safer.
-over the rest of the summer Reg and Sirius rebuild their bond, stronger than it ever was before (which is a feat previously unknown)
-Reg also finds himself talking to James more and more as the summer progresses
- the night terrors don’t stop but neither does the support of this new family
- When term starts again and Reg is back in his dorm surrounded by green upolstry and people who want him dead, Reg misses the red.
-letters come in threes at breakfast every day,
- Sirius writes long dramatic rants about trivial things, but always end with “I love you Reggie, I’m not leaving this time”
-Remus sends study tips and updates about the outside world, always including Sirius’ actual state of wellness
-James writes stories about work, and some of his adventures while at the school, usually mentioning a secret place or two for him to discover when everything becomes too much.
- James always writes in red ink.
- James’ letters always get opened last, because they always cause a strange flutter in his chest.
- Regulus sends notes back to Sirius and Remus together every evening short bits about his classes and teachers
- his letters to James however, detail a bit more.
- When Sirius asks why James gets his own letter and he has to share Reg doesn’t answer in that letter
-in his next letter to James however he does
- “I don’t know why I feel so safe talking to you. No one has ever truly made me feel safe before. I’m scared.”
- James’ next letter is four pages long. It tells the story of how he found Sirius beaten and bleeding on the stoop of his parents house, and how hard they had all fought to save Reg too.
- “I didn’t know if you knew the whole story. You don’t have to tell me anything, but I know more than you think. I know and I’m still here. I’ll always be here Reg.”
-if Regulus reads that letter until the ink starts to smudge, that’s no one’s business but his own.
- When Reg goes home for Christmas he finds himself staring far more often than he’d like to admit.
- The night before Christmas eve finds too much alcohol and even more laughter
-Sirius and Remus sneak away unnoticed while Reg and James talk late into the night.
- When Reg wakes up the next morning face pressed into James’ chest on the sofa he realizes this is the first night in years a night terror hasn’t been so bad he’s woken screaming.
- When James opens his eyes and smiles at him, mumbling a sleepy good morning Reg realizes something
-maybe Hazel is the safest shade of green.
