Okay, here with my third review.

I just love how you create this sense of mystery in each of your chapters. We're sort of forced to imagine what's really going on and what it all means. I honestly think you don't need to worry about your plot at all, especially if you keeping writing like this. There are certainly parts of your writing that I think you could just as easily place in an Agatha Christie novel.

I think you've probably come to this conclusion by now, but I love how you write each of your characters. Like I said in my first review, I love how you don't just focus on the younger characters but you also give the older ones voices too. I find myself just as interested in their parts as the others, which is rather odd for me. I especially liked how we got to hear from Walburga a bit in this chapter- I like how she focuses on the 'issue' of Barty rather than the death of Cygnus. I especially like seeing the real difference in personality between Bellatrix and Narcissa.

I thinking the ending scene is incredibly powerful. It's mysterious enough to grab the attention of everyone, but there's also a sense of knowing sort of what's going to happen. Brilliantly done, as always.

If you'd like to re-request for the other chapters, then please just comment on my thread or send me a PM and I'd be happy to. I hope these reviews have been helpful to you in some way.

Author's Response: Hey there - thank you so much for the whole set of reviews, they've been so lovely and great to receive! :)

Thank you so much for that! I always try to keep things mysterious and not give things away - it's so hard! So tempting to just say what's going on and I have no sense of judging when something is enough of a clue or not... - so I'm so glad you like it! :) And to be compared to Agatha Christie is mind-blowing! :D :D

I actually really like exploring the older Black members as well as the ones we know better. Walburga has turned out to be surprisingly interesting, and I actually find myself starting to sort of empathise with her... it sounds terrible, I know! Haha, yeah, she definitely prefers to complain about Barty than mourn her dead brother, though why is something I'll let you decide ;) I have to be honest, I love creating conflict. So I always try to put clashing characters into situations where they have to talk to each other, or interact in some way, because it's so much fun to see the results! There's so many differences between them all - Bella and Narcissa, Sirius and Regulus, etc. It's just so exciting!

Gah, thank you so much! I was always a bit nervous about that one, because it was a real challenge to make it vague enough as it needed to be, without being too vague and just sounding odd, so I'm so happy you think it's alright! :)

Thank you so so much for these reviews - they've been so great to get, and I'll definitely try and nab another spot in your review thread! ;) And sorry for responding so late (I'm terrible at responding... it's so bad!)
