Hey I'm back with another random review!
I really enjoyed this narrative, as it kept you guessing for a while as to who it was. I was pleased to find that it was Druella, as you don't often many stories about her. I really liked your characterization of her, especially the way she observed all of her surroundings as I found that really interesting! It was also nice the way she described Tonks as beautiful, as it showed that despite her being a half blood she wasn't shunned!
I loved the description of her being the white sheep and the black flock, it was a really clever pun! It was nice to see that there are some nice Black's out there, besides Sirius, and that the whole family isn't completly mental!
It was interested to see how her daughters have developed, especially Bellatrix! I liked how you showed that she wasn't born an evil fanatic it was more of a transition into becoming one. I liked the bit about Andromeda always being a star because in a way she was!
One CC is perhaps break up some of your longer paragraphs, as sometimes I lost my concentration which detracted from the flow.
Other than that it was a great story, and I really enjoyed Druella's story and her reflection on her life so far! Kiana :)
Author's Response: Hello again!
It was my intention to keep Druella's identity a secret at first, and I'm pleased that you enjoyed that aspect. Additionally, at the time I wanted to write someone who wasn't written about that much, and Druella seemed like a good option. Tonks, I think, would have been publicly disowned by Druella like the rest of the family did - I don't Druella would -ever- have admitted her true opinion about Tonks to anyone else but herself. So in a way, she was shunned, but at the same time, she wasn't. :)
Haha, thank you! It just came naturally to me; the phrase comes from the fact that white sheep are common. As the Blacks regard themselves as anything but common, it made sense for them to be a black flock, which is very rare. Of course the name had some part in it, but it was more about common vs. rare. And I have no idea why I just typed all that since you probably didn't want to read that. >.<
Well, I think most of them were nice! Sirius is obvious, but Andromeda married a Muggle-born, Narcissa saved Harry's life (for her son, but still) and Regulus eventually turned against Voldemort. ;)
I'll take note of that; as I said in my A/N, this one-shot is quite old and as such, my writing standard isn't as good as it is now. But I plan to eventually edit this, so I'll look at breaking up the longer paragraphs when I do that. :)
Thank you! I'm really happy that you enjoyed this one-shot! ♥
