Hello dear, I'm here with your requested review!

I loved this first chapter for so many reasons! First, it was written impeccably. Everything flowed so well, the narrative just tied in together, the grammar and spelling were perfect.

Secondly, I loved the name you chose for the elder Nott. Thanatos is the Greek name for the demon that personified death and this name for a Death Eater is very fitting. He not only brought about the death of so many innocent people, he killed something within his son as well. The childhood innocence, the peace and serenity that he recalls so well from when he was little. There must have been a reason for his son to change sides and deep down inside he knows it.

I also loved that you didn't completely strip him of his humanity. The Death Eaters were people as well. They were parents, children, siblings, aunts and uncles. We saw this before in Narcissa and again here with this OC. In the end, a child is more important than the cause.

Andromeda's reaction was so raw and beautifully written, it made me feel her pain, in the few words she spoke. You brought to life this torn woman, widowed and left without her only child, left to care for a grandson too young to remember his parents.

All in all, I loved this first chapter and I can't wait to see what else you've got! Great job!

Author's Response: Hello! :)

I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed the chapter. The compliments on the writing style made me very happy, so thank you!

Ah, it's great to hear you picked up on the name. I was researching a first name for Mr. Nott and once I stumbled upon Thanatos it just felt right and I couldn't imagine him called anything else. I love your observation about killing something within his son, that's just a perfect way of putting what I was trying to convey with this chapter.

I definitely agree with Death Eaters needing to be dimensional and have softer sides as well! That was probably the most interesting part of getting into Nott's head for me. It's just too bad he couldn't have realized it sooner.

I'm really happy you enjoyed and were moved by Andromeda! She's such a tragic character, and had to deal with so much loss, so it's good to hear that she came across alright.

Thank you so much for this thoughtful review, it was really lovely!! :)
