So this younger version of Narcissa with Draco seems to fit in very well with the image we see of Narcissa in book 7 during the final battle; seemingly right in the thick of things with the death eaters, but much more concerned with the safety of her family over anything else. You did a good job of portraying her strong maternal instincts and how that would be her driving force in the situation.

You mentioned the departures from canon, but aside from a couple details, it still didn't seem too far off from what was likely happening despite being AU. If Lucius was able to conjure a patronus, a peacock is certainly an interesting choice. It seems symbolic of his deep pride and boastful appearance, which would be a good metaphor.

The scene with the boggart was particularly effective; it provided us with a brief moment to gasp, before putting things back in the proper perspective.

Overall this was an insightful look at Narcissa's character and role as a mother.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading & reviewing!

I am glad you found this younger Narcissa close to canon, and liked the highlight of her maternal instincts.

Ah, I couldn't have explained the significance of the peacock patronus better. I thought along the same lines :)

I am glad you liked the boggart scene, it took me a few tries to get it just right with the flow xD

Thanks again! Glad you liked it!
