Hm... what do I think? I am a bit confused to be perfectly honest. I love the idea of two Slytherins contemplating death and Thestrals. Blaise has a very good point, and I liked seeing that from him.

As for why Theo can see the Thestrals, that's where my understanding is lacking. So his mother killed her husbands, yes? But the death he saw was when his father killed his mother? I was confused by the memories because his father's and mother's parts kept intertwining and I struggled to grasp who was speaking. Am I completely off?

If I do understand correctly, I think it was a great concept. I really enjoyed it overall.

Author's Response: I don't blame you for being confused :P This is one of my stranger stories, I've got to say. I've no idea where it came from, really.

To understand this I think you've got to have a really good knowledge of the backgrounds of these two characters - Blaise with his murdering mother and her seven husbands (which is mentioned only briefly in canon) and the fact that Theodore Nott's mother died (which I'm not sure is mentioned in the books at all) and he was raised by his Death Eater father, and that he was the 'stringy Slytherin' mentioned in OotP who could see the thestrals, so the assumption is that he witnessed his mother's death.

If you don't know all that, this fic probably makes no sense whatsoever xD Sorry if I completely confused you, but thank you so much for reviewing and I'm glad you liked it all the same :)
