Bahhh this was so sad!

I'm always so torn with the Malfoys. There are a so many different things that they could have been before the war. Loving couple, together because of honor, neglectful spouses. Then after the war ended the possibilities become endless. I'm always interested in how the family actually recovered, but this was such a different side to it. Because they didn't actually really recover, and Lucius will never have the opportunity now. Now that I'm saying he completely deserves it, because he did so many terrible things.

I love that he realized that he owed her an apology at the end of this. That he took away so much from is family, and wanted to make sure she knew that he truly was sorry.

I liked your choice to have Draco in Paris. It stops us from having to turn this into something much different with the addition of him, but you still put him somewhere and acknowledged him so we aren't left thinking, "what about Draco?"

You did a really nice job showing what the suffering has done to Narcissa. The once feared, powerful woman seems so much like a ghost just waiting for it all to be over. Her treatment toward the house elf really showed that she just no longer has the strength to waste or even care. I liked that you didn't have her being nice because she's changing, but simply because anger is too exhausting. It was a really great detail.

This was a well written, sad little read :(! I'm happy I chose it!

Author's Response: Hi there! Thanks for reading & reviewing!

You're absolutely right. The Malfoys have a lot of dimensions that can be explored, and this is just one of the many that I did. And yeah, Lucius did a lot of terrible things, but I feel he could have been a better man if he wanted to, later on in life.

I thought that even a man like Lucius would ultimately repent his actions, and thus the apology.

Yeah I hate when it happens in stories that you are left wondering "what happened to this person though, where is he, etc etc" so I try not to leave out small details, and insert them somehow. And Draco seems the type to me who wouldn't want to stay where he endured so much and saw so much, so he went to Paris :)

I am flattered that you think I showed Narcissa and her suffering well - I really worked hard on it - and that you interpreted everything so well and right, and noticed all the little details. It makes me really happy when my readers see things the way I want them to, and you did just that :)

I am glad this made a good read. Thanks!
