Hmmm... I really like this. It was an interesting way to write the scene where Voldemort asks Bella to hide something for him. And it was more interesting how he didn't boss her around. But I suppose if he did do that, then she wouldn't be such a loyal follower. I like how you almost touch on romance there with the dance scene though. Even though while we know Bellatrix loves the Dark Lord we also know that he is incapable of love...

The ending was very curious, as well. I found it amusing that, while talking to Bella, Voldemort says "our descendants" when neither of them have children. He's the last of his lineage and she only has her sister's son for a descendant, and she kills her niece, Tonks. I wonder if Voldemort is just playing her or if he really thinks they'll "be together."

Well, as I said this was very interesting and thought provoking and I did very much enjoy it. I was literally, like, leaning in, glued to the screen the entire time as I was reading it, haha.

Author's Response: Hello again!

I always figured that while Voldemort probably didn't have true feelings for Bellatrix, he would treat her a little differently than most of the other Death Eaters. I conceptualized that by having him toy with her feelings in a way that would seem romantic to her but is all part of the ultimate end for him, if that makes sense. He's surely spent time researching his followers and knows what to do to unravel each of them.

You got it--again, just playing with her. Bellatrix probably did believe that she'd eventually have a future with him, whether that meant children (likely not, knowing her) or just an army of loyal followers (much better! hah.).

I'm glad this pulled you in, and that you liked it! Thanks for another fantastic review :)
