Hi there! Here reviewing for the Blackout Bingo!

Wow, this was a really powerful piece of writing. I don't think I've got to this part in GoT yet but I like the way that you took inspiration from something like that and applied it to this situation - I think it worked very well, particularly with your choice of character and setting.

There aren't many stories that show Lucius as a character who's this vulnerable while the war is going on; I've seen a lot of him fighting and thoughts about his family, but I think this really took Lucius's character to a new level by giving him more depth and making him seem much more human. The Dementors are one of the worst things people could experience, and it makes perfect sense to me that they would be his breaking point, so to speak - after he comes back from prison, he never really seems like the man that he had been before. I always think that it would have been enough to cure him of his way of life if it hadn't been for the fear that he lived in with Voldemort's return.

I really felt sorry for him here, the way you showed him to be so vulnerable. It was horrible to read about him waiting for the Dementors, feeling like there was something wrong because they hadn't come yet, not wanting them to come and yet knowing that they would, eventually. And when they did your writing was very powerful and moving. I liked some of the chaos in his thoughts as he tried to escape from the effects of the Dementors, especially the references to Narcissa and Draco who I think would be the people he would use to try and cling on to some semblance of sanity.

Lovely writing, too - the imagery and description you used here was really effective. I enjoyed reading this!

Sian :)
