Review:Calypso says:
Hehe Bellatrix is evil but she's so much fun!
I loved the way you wrote her, quite like we see her in the books but a little less far down that path (pre-Azkaban I spose.) I thought the idea of her mocking Voldemort in front of Lucius and Rodolphus and the others but in fact being desperate to join him was great! And I thought you got the young-Death-Eater-competitive-angst spot on- although Bella certainly seems to know how to keep them in check!
I'd love to see her relationship with her parents explored more- especially the idea that she and her father have things in common which you seemed to suggest. Also thought how interesting it is that Andromeda and Bellatrix are both trying to escape, but are doing so in such different ways- I can't wait to hear Narcissa!
Thankyou for posting, so far you've written these characters in a such a gorgeous way!

Author's Response: Haha yes. I had a bit of a struggle trying to write Bellatrix because she's such a difficult character to empathize with, y'know? But I am so so so happy that you liked her and the interactions among her and the young Death Eaters. I was pretty nervous about their "competitive angst", as you've quite succinctly dubbed it (:
Her father doesn't really play much of a role in this story, unfortunately, but I definitely think she takes after him more than her mother. In my head-canon, at least hehe.
And I am legitimately overjoyed that you made the connection between Andromeda and Bellatrix's individual yearnings to escape - mostly because this story is basically my sad attempt to explore the similarities between the three Black sisters, even while highlighting their differences. The Narcissa chapter should be out soon!
Thank you so much for this review! Sorry for rambling on like this, but it just really means a lot to me that you liked this enough to review both chapters (: Thank you thank you thank you
