When you're going to boss someone around, it's more socially acceptable if you say please.

^ You tell him Narcissa!

This story is so cool. Sorry my reviews for this are horrid, I just get so excited because the imagery just makes everything so real. I feel like I'm in a forest in my room right now and I'm a little afraid to look into my mirror.

I'm afraid of mirrors, which is weird, I know. But I tend to...err.break them...a lot. And you know what they say 'break a mirror and get seven years of bad luck'. So I stay away from them!

Author's Response: Your reviews aren't horrid! They're amazing. :hug:

I don't like mirrors at night. They freak me out because I always think I'm going to see someone in it behind me like some horror movie, or I'm going to be distorted or something. -is weird-

So pleased you liked the imagery and that you're enjoying Narcissa teaching Lucius manners!! ^ ^

Quite the amazing chapter! :) I can't wait to find out what she saw in the mirror. It shall be quite interesting!

Author's Response: I have a thing with writing about mirrors. I don't think I can write a single story without it involving something reflective. It's one of my many tropes. :) Thank you for reading and reviewing. ^ ^ It makes my day so much brighter whenever I go back to read these.

Ooh, getting to more about the legends. Narcissa's attitude toward them is perfect--skeptical, of course, but it seems like she's trying to accept that they could actually be somewhat valid. The connection with the wolves is really cool; and the magic of the house is just so enchanting.

The Mirror of Erised is certainly an interesting twist; I'm about jumping up and down right now to read what happens next. I love that this whole story has the fairy tale aspect but also the dark, creepy aspect. That reels me in even more, I think. Spectacular chapter. Spectacular everything, in fact. I'm running out of ways to express how in love I am with this story and your excellent writing!

Author's Response: The wolves will come into play later - I haven't written it yet, but trust me, they do have a meaning.

This story, like you said, is fairy tale but also creepy. Which was done on purpose, because essentially, this is the story of how Lucius and Narcissa became Death Eaters, told in an unconventional way. I think that the road to becoming Voldemort's minion is an ugly and twisted one, and I want to capture every bump and dark shadow along the way. This story will only get creepier as it unravels.

I have a fascination with mirrors - I've always been interested in the idea of a parallel universe, and things happening beyond the mirror. That comes out especially in this story, since this story is a parallel universe itself.

Review #4, by TenthWeasley

This is probably my favorite chapter to date as far as your imagery goes -- I know I say it a lot, but the way that you are able to describe things truly amazes me, more than I can ever say to a full extent. You have a very Gothic style of writing - one look at this story and it conjures images of castles and shadows and candles, cobwebs and ethereal things. It's a lovely thing to think of and see, and I think this is why I enjoy it so much. It's just GOOD.

I love how Narcissa's personality is developing, as well -- she's not as much of a damsel in distress as one might have surmised, and even less so in this chapter. And she even has a sense of humour! (Pushing Lucius down a flight of stairs, running him into a wall -- poor guy.)

I think the most fascinating thing, though, was Lucius's bedroom, because it shows a lot about HIS character. You're slowly making him into more man than beast, and with how creepy you've made him look, that's an admirable feat. All he wants is what he can't have, and that says a lot about him. Having trees in his bedroom was a brilliant idea. I was all set for carved ebony and dreariness, but you've turned that notion on its head, and I couldn't be more glad.

And the curtains? Sheer brilliance. Dementor's skin -- that is so amazing that you could think of that.

This whole chapter was so great. I think I must have skipped some, because it was over too fast. And what does Narcissa see in the mirror?? I HAVE TO KNOW. (Genius idea, that, by the way.)

Sarah, I really wish I could tell you HOW much I love this story. It's so... YOU. (Stealing your words here!) I could look at this any day and know it was you who'd written it, and I love that about it, that you wrote so much of yourself here. I absolutely cannot wait for updates.


Love you! Fantastic chapter, but I expected no less.

Author's Response: You see ME in the story?

-glances around to find it-

I shall take your word for it. ^_^

So, there is no way that I can coherently respond to this review, so I'm just going to remind you, once again, how amazingly awesome you are. You are the best reviewer ever, and you make me feel as if I'm writing something that matters.

Another impressive chapter. It's very entertaining to watch Narcissa teach Lucius about courtesy, and I'm curious to see what will be made of the pond mirror. As always, your imagery is fascinating. Great work!

Author's Response: Thank you once again for reading and reviewing. I'm glad that you like the imagery I used! I wish I could describe in my responses how much I value your reviews, and how encouraging they are, but I always seem to draw a blank. But thank you, so very much, for continuing to read and review and make my day.
