What I think is very interesting is how hard Bellatrix tried to please her father in this chapter. It makes me think that Bellatrix's behavior here is almost like what she will do in the future, try to please Voldemort.

Her naive indignance at Muggleborns and the likes was well written because her shock was genuine; it was as if the thought that Muggleborns could think that they were equal was SO appalling that it was so shocking a thought.

Although we know that Bellatrix really got crazy later on in her life, this chapter sort of set up the foundation for her character later on because we see her strong foundation in her beliefs and the beginnings of the pureblood-supremicist attitude.

Great job, can't wait for the next update! (:

Author's Response: I'm SO happy you picked up on how hard Bellatrix is trying to please her father! I think her need to get that sort of approval would have started long before Voldemort, though she's very selective of just who she wants to please.

I don't think there would ever have been a time where Bella *didn't* think Muggleborns were disgusting creatures. It's just like years ago in America when people though it was okay to own another human being, then thought it was okay to give those people less rights once they were free. Of course there were those that questioned slavery, but so many people just went with it because that's how it was. Then there's still the people who fully supported it and still insisted that anyone who wasn't white didn't deserve to be looked at as equals. Bellatrix falls under the latter for me. Not only was she raised to fully support the ideas of Mudbloods being worthless, but she relishes in it. It isn't something that she just accepts, but enjoys.

Wow. I don't even know how I got on that ramble, hahaha. Thank you so much for reading this second chapter and your lovely review on it ♥ I know it's so much different from the first, but I wanted to take us back to a little glimpse of how this all started.
