You left such a wonderful review on my one-shot, I'm going to try (and probably fail) to return the offer.

Wow. I don't read many stories from the different perspective of the war, but I'm glad I took the time to read through this.

History, in general, never really gives both sides of a warfare. Rowling, through Harry, told about a war against pure-blood supremacists that wished to see everyone else killed. Because of this, we generally visualize these people as blood-thirsty monsters. Your one-shot really opened my eyes to another perspective. Bravo!

Narcissa's description of these fellow Deatheaters is just perfect. They all, essentially, changed and shifted into individuals that contrast greatly with what they used to be. My favorite that she described is Evan Rosier. I really connected the most with him and his efforts to cause every beautiful witch to blush at his words. The fact that I actually related to a deatheater blew my mind.

Your writing style is wonderful in that you use just enough pathos to keep me invested in the story right to the end of it.

The descriptions kept me reading every word of the narrative.

The ending was just brilliant and left me in a depressed mood (don't worry, I need to go review some happy-fluffy works, so I'll get over it).

I'm adding this to my favorites

Author's Response: Hey there! Naww, don't worry about it - your story was gorgeous and it was totally deserved! :)

Gah, thank you so much! I really wanted to do something which showed the other side, with the idea that people still died and every death is bad, because I've seen so many stories about the losses the Order and them incurred, but not many (if any) about the other side, which to me seems a little one-sided. So yeah, I'm glad it worked ;)

I'm so happy you liked that - I kinda wanted to show that war changes people and often in ways you don't expect, which can just leave you completely blindsided, so I'm glad that came across! And yeah, Evan Rosier's pretty cool... I'm always half-tempted to write something else with him and the other Death Eater guys, but it never quite comes through...

Thank you so so much for the wonderful review, and all the compliments - it really was so lovely! And thank you for the swap - it was so great to do, I really enjoyed it! :)
