Whew! I've been on a Detox marathon for the past couple of nights and you leave THIS as the last chapter. Oh dear, I'm not sure how I'll survive until the next update!

That was probably the best fight scene I've read on this site. Your characterization of Narcissa is so perfect - she's probably my favourite character. Calm, cool and collected, as well as resourceful and deadly. What a woman.

I especially love the line where Narcissa said that if Bellatrix had received that particular heirloom, she would have burned down the whole island.

I love the way you portray Draco as toeing the line. Alcoholic, unstable and with a truly deadly temper, he's also powerful and you've included these redeeming factors that are impossible to ignore. His dedication to his family, his determination and love for his family (and Astoria of course) make him impossible to dismiss as corrupted, without letting us forget his fatal flaws.

But back to my outrage... how could you leave us with a cliffhanger like that? I'll have gone mad by the next update, I really will.

Please continue to be fantastic.

Author's Response: Hi, there!

Sorry about the cliffhanger. Originally, this chapter was supposed to have extended to cover Draco's big showdown with Gamp and the others, but it was already getting long and I had to cut it off somewhere. I'm working on the next one, which should be a doozy!

I'm really glad that you liked the fight scene. They're some of my favorite things to write! I think Narcissa has survived far too much by this point to get flustered in the face of a bunch of rank amateurs like Flint and Goyle. Once she feels like Draco and Lucius have the situation under control for a moment, she digs into her bag of old Black family relics and unleashes a dose of nasty on the conspirators.

Draco has been riding the ragged edge for the past couple of chapters, but things have started to come together in his head at this point. If only he can keep that head attached to his shoulders, he should be in good shape.

I promise to try to turn the next chapter around a bit more quickly, although I feel like work is about to throw me a major curve. We shall see...

Thanks for reading and reviewing!
