Hey! Here from review tag :)

So I actually kind of love this pairing, though you're right, the two of them aren't often put together. (Or perhaps that's just my love for Lucius/Narcissa blocking them out from my mind.) I really love the animalistic way in which you described them, and I thought your characterization was great, especially your portrayal of how Bellatrix gives her madness its own method, its own purpose. I love the way in which she so easily uses and abuses her new plaything, treating him in much the same way as her master does in the final canon volume. You can really see how far he's fallen, how powerless he's really become. I do pity him here.

It's really neat how you've threaded canon events in with Bellatrix's train of thought here. Her treatment of Draco is really interesting, and I can sense that she is enraged that so much of his father has taken over inside of him, leaving little of the values she prizes within herself. I also like how you've alluded to the distance we saw between Narcissa and Bellatrix in the scenes at Malfoy Manor, the clear separation between the wholly devoted sister and the more hesitant one.

This was really powerful, especially given its length. Great job! :)

Author's Response: Hey! You've got my Bellatrix spot on--she's a user and an abuser. She's also aloof and not one to be cozy with anyone--her lover, her sister or even her own son. I'm very glad that this received such praise from a clever writer such as yourself! :)
