Hi! I'm here for the review tag! :)

Aw, this was really good! What I love about this story is that it captures the essence of Narcissa's character! I don't necessarily think of her as a very good person, but the trait that separates her from many of the other Death Eaters is her strong love for her son (and for her husband too, I guess). Her love for Draco is what motivates her choices throughout the HP series, which is why this story is so interesting! It's also what made me sort of like her character in a way - especially in that moment in the forbidden forest when she no longer cares about who wins or who loses, as long as Draco is still alive. That's the same feeling I got from this one-shot. It was beautifully written with very vivid descriptions, and I don't have any criticism at all! Even though you say this is AU, I can imagine something simular to this happening in the original series!

I think that the part with the Boggart was the best part of this story. At first, I freaked out and thought no! He's dead! Draco's dead! And when he turned into Lucius I was confused for a moment before I realised what was going on. I think this shows an even more likable side to Narcissa, because it gives her a similarity to Mrs Weasley, who is most likely the most loving and caring mother in the series (perhaps there's a tie between her and Lily...) So yes, I guess that your story made me like Narcissa more, if that makes any sense, haha! ;)

Once again, you've impressed me with your great writing! Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Hey! Thanks a ton for your lovely review.

I am pleased you liked this story and found Narcissa portrayed well. Yeah, I tried to 'expand' on her love for Draco that we see in the books, in this story, and it's great to know that you got that feeling. I am flattered that you can connect this with the original series and that you found my descriptions vivid!

Ah I enjoyed writing the boggart part and I am glad you liked it too. Yes, Narcissa is a mother so I wanted to show that similarity between her and Molly. It's awesome to hear that you like Narcissa more after reading my story, and it made sense!

Thank you for all your kind words!
