Review:Elphaba and Boyfriends says:
Hi, Elphaba here again!

Right away, I think your portrayal of Bellatrix is spot-on. "But, more likely, she stayed late at the hospital to save a few extra lives or some other worthless endeavor." She may love her sisters and possess a sharp wit, but she's also a bit evil. :)

I especially appreciated the section where she breaks into the cluster of men: "'Are you certain you can't be persuaded to share?' I purr, a sickly sweet smile on my face." I'd want to grab them by the balls, too, if they were to mock me the way they mock her.

I love that you reveal her motivation for joining Voldemort in this chapter, and that it isn't just because she's in love with him (gag). Wanting to escape her life and the role that has been prescribed for her makes perfect sense to me. She and Andromeda both seem to want to escape, but have vastly different ways of going about it!

Great job so far!

Author's Response: It makes me really ridiculously happy that no one has yet reviewed to say, "Wow, your Bellatrix sucks!" I was incredibly nervous about writing her and I've always thought she was one of the more complex, difficult characters that J.K. Rowling wrote. So it really means a lot to me that you like my Bellatrix. Seriously. You're awesome.
I didn't want to make her in love with Voldemort because that's never seemed right to me...it's always seemed like something far greater and crazier than love. Closer to unhealthy devotion :P I'm glad you could understand her motivation, anyway.
Thank you! :D You are the greatest for reading and reviewing all these.
