Hi Aph!

Thanks for doing a review swap with me. :D

I love the connection between Barty and Regulus - it's hard to tell who is more enamored with the other when they're together. In preivous chapters, it seemed that Barty was quite enamored with Regulus but here the concern and desire to impress feels quite mutual.

Bellatrix's appearance in this chapter is brilliant. I can imagine this exposure to Barty here influenced their quest to go out and torture the Longbottoms. She comes across with an amount of dangerous seduction that few other characters in HP could do.

Every scene with Pollux and Orion seem to wend deeper into strange family connections. I was surprised that Orion was so outspoken towards Pollux here. I did love this line: “You would risk everything on something as whimsical as hope?”

Of course they'd have some demented children's stories as heirlooms. bleck. Ah! I'm dying to know what is in the vial.

Congrats on your diadem for this story - it is very much deserved!!!


Author's Response: Hey Rose! :) So great to see you stopping by - I really must remember to go back and get to True Romance, as well! ;)

Thanks - I'm so glad you liked that little bit! It was an odd section to write, if only because the tone and general feel felt so out of place in the rest of it, haha, so I was a bit unsure about it. I did try to make it seem natural and less one-sided than it maybe has done before, so I'm glad some of that seemed to come through!

Gah, thank you so much! :) Honestly, she's one of my favourite characters to write, lol. There's just so much you can do with her that you can't with other characters and I love that. Ooh, maybe - I didn't really think about that, tbh, but yeah the exposure will certainly have helped with the whole eventual-Death-Eater thing!

Ah, I'm so happy that came through! I really like playing up the family-oriented element, coz it's so fun to include and allows for things to be a little more personal and a little more spiteful, you know? Haha, Orion is one of the characters I've grown to love, oddly enough - and he is a bit more like Sirius than is obvious ;)

Yeah, haha, weird freaky children's stories in the library... :P Ooh, the vial - yeah the vial is important. Really important ;) but I can't tell you anything about it (obviously! :P)!

Thank you so so much for the review! I really enjoyed swapping with you (as always!) and thanks so much again for the congrats on the Diadem! I was so happy to see this do so well - it's kinda become something I'm actually kinda proud of :)
