It's your SS here from the Slytherin Common Room!

wow! I've never read a story about the beginnings of Bella and Rudolphus. All the same I loved it. One part that I enjoyed was that Lucius was seemingly his "mentor" throughout the whole thing, yet he seemed to be having issues of his own. Not to mention a little Sirius and I'm guessing the friends are Lupin or Petigrew or James. I never would have thought of adding them into the equation, but the way you placed them made it work.

I'm used to the evil, sinister, Voldemort loving Bella that JKR produces, and usually when someone goes out of character, like you did with her being nice and lovy, it doesn't work. But the way you wrote it made it seem natural. I almost forgot she turns out evil in the end of it all.

I had been confused about the 4 in the afternoon reference, but that too came out perfectly at the end.

All in all I loved it and now I'll be reading a lot more Bella/Rud stories.

Author's Response: Hey kjodraco!

Yeah, it is a rather unusual pairing in that it's not written about so often especially in this context. I tried to maintain some of her, um, well-known qualities in this fic, while still trying to make her seem almost pleasant. Though, like in canon, Lucius can't really stand her :p. I also wanted to give Rodolphus a bit more play because he always seems to be left out, I really loved writing him.

Haha, yeah, Lucius was having issues, I just thought he was hilarious in this fic but I'm glad you caught the irony there.

Sirius' friends were indeed the rest of the Marauders, I thought it would've been nice to include them :)

I'm really glad you loved it, it doesn't get many reads because of the pairing. I thought the reference in the end was a nice touch, it was actually one of the first things that came to mind when I was writing this.

Thanks a lot and Merry Christmas!!
Lia.
