Hey! -BookDinosaur- here with your requested review! And no, I'm not sick of your writing. I love reading your writing. :P

I really liked this short story, I think that you portrayed Nott really well. You managed to give him a sense of loyalty and awe for Voldemort, (as opposed to just telling us he was loyal to and loved Voldemort, like most authours do) and he really believed that what he did was right, which was very realistic. Also, his conflicting feelings for his son was just so well written. I could really see him telling me the story, hear his voice in my ear, you just brought him to life in my mind.

I love that you are writing about a minor character, on the Dark side, during the aftermath of the fight. It's a really refreshing idea, and lots of authors have trouble developing a minor character with canon guidelines but their own personalities. I'm glad to say you've done that exactly right. ;D

As a companion piece to The Girl From Slytherin, I think it works really well, although it does give some spoilers... Generally, though, it complements The Girl From Slytherin really well.

All in all, a really great short story I really enjoyed reading.

Author's Response: Hi! Aw, you're too sweet! :)

I'm glad you liked this story and Nott, and that it seemed to "show" his personality and motivations. I'm glad you liked his conflicted feelings for his sons, since it really gives him some more humanity.

I really enjoyed writing him, and imagining how DE post-battle would feel. At the time of writing this, I had way too many conflicting ideas for the future of GfS, and felt like I needed to get them down! Even though this moment is really far away in GfS, it's great to hear that it complements it well!

Thank you so much for another awesome review!! :)
