I would like to lodge a complaint: You seem to be one of those people who thinks Lucius cares nothing for his family. My apologies if you aren't.

Author's Response: Thank you for the critique!! :)

I can see how you might get that impression, and allow me to assure that I don't believe Lucius completely stone-hearted. I do believe that he cares deeply for his family, although I think he has an odd way of expressing it at times. He wants to toughen Draco up, to bring him to an impossible standard, and Lucius makes bad choices because, due to his cowardice and thirst for power, he made bad choices in the past that he must still pay the consequences for.

But remember--this is about how Draco perceives him. I think that he more than anything wants to please his father, but he has a healthy respect and fear of his father--as well he should, for Lucius certainly is capable of some horrific things. I think it's possible that at times Lucius could have, if not been outright cruel, at the very least outstepped the boundaries that he should as a parent follow, in the hopes of improving Draco. Draco, however, would probably not completely understand the true motives behind his father's actions.

Again, I apologize for any ambiguities on the subject and hope that clarified some things. Lucius will not play a major role in this story, and I hope you'll continue reading. I plan to update with the next chapter very soon--I've been pretty negligent to this story the last couple of months since I've been very busy, but I have a little more down-time now and hope to give the story the attention it deserves!

Thank you again for your feedback.
