Gabby, I am so, so, so sorry it's taken me so long to readcand review this chapter! I've been insanely busy with a play the last two weeks, and the show just ended on Friday. Now that you know my excuse, onto the chapter!
I loved being able to see Draco's side of things, because he's so torn. The way he isn't sure what he feels leaves him almost vulnerable,but he still maintains that arrogant Malfoy "charm". I LOVED Bellatrix. She was perfectly nasty.
Astoria's conversation with her father was awesome. It's weird to read how businesslike their interaction is when they're talking about her marriage and her future. Even though she's talking with her own father, she seems almost afraid of him. I like that she decides to run away to the Zabini estate, despite the fact that he isn't really her friend yet. It shows that she has nowhere else to go.
This was an awesome chapter, and I can't wait for more! I'm working on the next chapter of LMT, and I've also started a novel! But I won't post that until after LMT is over. 10/10
Author's Response: Hello!
Oh, that is so understandable! Real life sinks its hideous teeth into us all, sometimes. But how did your play go? That sounds alot more interesting than what I've been doing these past few days, hahahaa.
Gasp! I think a vulnerable Malfoy is scarier than a calm one, to be honest and that "charm" of his just gets all the worse, trust me. I have loose story-lines in my mind and he's going to get just alot nastier but I don't know how to execute them just yet. :( But Bellatrix had to arrive sooner or later and I am no fan of hers but I tried to keep her nastiness and long-ago haughtiness the same as from the actual books.
Astoria's conversation with her father was difficult to write because who talks to their own child that way? The Greengrass family are horrible people and everything goes down to business, business, business. There is no free will in that house. Astoria, in my honest opinion, may be afraid of her father and for a good reason, he's not a pleasant man by any degree. Hahhaaa, I wanted her running to Zabini's home to be really desperate but originally, she doesn't go there. She actually goes to another family member's house but becuase I had given you all no notice of more of their family, that would have been silly on my part. Thanks for reading, you're awesome!
Can't wait for LMT and you're doing a novel?! Ooh, I can't even wait for it, what's it going to be about?! Oh! I forgot to mention but "Albus Potter and the Dark Lord's Prince" has a fresh chapter up. There's plenty for you to read adn I'll be looking forward to our next chat!
