Review: Whimsical Diva says:
You write the Malfoys ridiculously in character. One of the reasons why I generally stay away from Dramiones is because the Malfoys are as often as not portrayed as this caricaturish deranged lot who are uncaring and cruel.

But in this fic, Lucius, Naricca and Draco, all the three of them are so staggeringly real. They are so incredibly self-centred (the reason they want Rose is because they see her as their only heir), and this works so well for the plot, because it lends so much of plausibility.

I am a canon freak (which is odd, givent he fact that barring James/Lily and Authur/Molly, I pretty much loathe all canon pairings. Harry/Ginny especially (I mean, can there be a couple with any less chemistry than Harry/Ginny)), so Harry-Luna should have bothered me greatly. But I lapped up the ship without any qualms in this fic. Lots of writers have difficulty in writing Luna; she is either too eccentric, or she is too sane that she is OOC. But I think she is very nearly in character in this story. :)

Your grasp of concepts like parenthood, family etcetera are astonishing and magisterial. And your writing does so much justice to the plot and the characters; the story tugs at your heartstrings and the nuances of every relationship, every character is brought out so beautifully.

Author's Response: Bloody hell, you made me blush! Lol, thank you so much for this wonderful review.

I will admit that it is extremely hard to write Luna's character. At first, I was going to write a section from her perspective. But then I realised it would be near impossible to actually do that, because I have - and so does everyone else - no idea what goes on in that head of hers.

If you go on Wikipedia and look at the black family tree, you'll see that a Septimus Weasley and Cedrella Black are married. These are assumed to be Arthur's parents. And if that is true, then Harry and Ginny are actually third cousins. I shudder at the pairing, I really do.

I'm glad you think that I've written the Malfoys in character. Don't forget that Draco does have more of a reason to accept Rose than his mother or father. He does care, just because she's his child. Other than that, you've hit the nail on the head.

I'm thrilled you like this story and again, thank you for the review.
