This reads like a lovely poetic narrative (which I might have also said in my review for Shadow - I'm not being redundant, you're being awesome).

Weaving in the imagery of a mirror and the passsage of her soul is brilliant. I think it resonates quite well as a symbol for death and the soul. I was a bit taken aback (no idea why) that once her parents found out about her dying episodes they almost put it on display for other people. I was so fascinated by the scene with her being burnt. Having Lucius there was an excellent touch.

The idea that Draco might have gotten this gift of sorts is another fascinating idea. It's nice to think that Andromeda was keeping track of Narcissa after their estrangement.

Their reunion, so many years after the war, was so full of feels I nearly cried! I love the idea that they were reuinited after so long. ^_^

Narcissa's final death was heart wrenching. It was absolutely beautiful to read.

Author's Response: Hi Rose! :)

Ah thanks very much! :) I love writing in this sort of poetic style, it comes a great deal easier than writing narrative and dialogue sometimes, so I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

I was always interested in the superstition of the soul being trapped in the mirror and thought the symbol fit well considering the background of Narcissa's name. :) I'm so glad you liked that and how it represented death. I felt like Andy would still care about her family and be worried about them even after all the troubles, and would still love her sister from a distant perspective. I loved writing the burning scene since witch burnings are quite fascinating to me, and it was a frightening and rather creepy way to show off her power which fit with the original poem as well.

Ah well I'm glad it gave off feels, even if they were sad ones! :( I felt like it was right for them to have a happy (ish) ending and to have each other for support in the end.

Thanks so much for a beautiful review! :) It was so lovely and I really enjoyed swapping with you as always! :D
