Review:Ardeith says:
I was so excited to see that you've returned to writing (after a well-deserved break!) and to this story.

I can't say I remember every detail ... beyond loving this story ... but this chapter got me write back into the middle of it.

OMG -- Circe's death. This will haunt me: "As the ancient witch writhed in a cold fire suspended in midair, cobalt flames reaching through her nose and open mouth to lick at the hollow interior of her skull"

And actually felt sorry for Greyback here and he has always been one of my most hated/feared characters from canon.

Loved Voldemort the grammarian! You write him and the hold on his followers so well. Love that Narcissa can see how he plays them. And love Bellatrix mimicking his gestures. They are truly a cult and he is their cult leader!

This chapter got me right back into the emotion of the story. I hate seeing the bond between Narcissa and Lucius fray after all they've been through. This was heartwrenching:

"I tried to focus on Lucius, yearning for a nod or smile or softening of his features, but found nothing but cold hardness. He was a statue, sitting proudly in his chair like it was a throne, and I remembered the similarities Id once seen between him and the Dark Lord. I wished I knew when he was pretending and which of us he was pretending to. Was he pretending here with Voldemort or at home with me?"

Author's Response: Ardeith! I'm so happy to see that you're back. I honestly don't deserve to have any readers left because of how ridiculously long it's been since my last update. So I very much appreciate seeing you here. :)

Greyback is one of my most-hated villains, too. I like how JKR made her villains different from each other - Umbridge, Voldemort, Quirrell, Snape, Draco, Bellatrix, etc. Greyback is on the more ignorant end of the scale, and because of his ignorance he has a scarily keen mindset when it comes to attacking people. He's so uneducated and such an outcast that he has no qualms whatsoever when it comes to destroying lives. He feels it's his only purpose.

Voldemort the grammarian, hehe. I decided to make him like that because from what we saw in CoS and HBP, he was a bit snarky and looked down on people - like how he looked down on Hagrid. So any opportunity to assert himself as the most intelligent person in the room would be pounced upon, I think.

Lucius and Narcissa's relationship is strained; though the worst certainly is yet to come. But we know that they'll make it through!

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!
