This is amazing! the way you write Narcissa Balck is perfect. I have listened to this on hp poadcast multiple times. Each time it gets better. "She would take his darkness, his secrets, his coldness and she would take his beauty, his passion, and his status," This line makes me shiver. Your writting is so beautiful. Great job on this!

Wow! This is the first time I read a story in which Narcissa is the main character...and I must say I am VERY impressed! Excellent job in portraying her! You have made me want to read more stories about her. (^_^)

Author's Response: We knew so little about her at the time this story was written. I'm happy I guessed right about some things.

Review #4, by N/A 

2nd October 2007:
I love this side of Narcissa. In the books, it was always made to seem as if she agreed 100% with the ways of her husband. As if she was just falling in line as a trophy wife, if you will, and nothing more. To see her, just as strong as Bellatrix was quite enjoyable.

However, my favorite parts of this chapter were in reference to Sirius. Rogue and radical, Sirius Black had never done things the way a true Black did. I don't think J.K. could've written it better. And this “So you have chosen your champion, mounted your horse and now you discover not a thoroughbred but a nag. You have earned your saddle sores gentleman. I have done what I could to stop it. Don’t expect me to help when this runaway mount carries you straight into the burning barn.” He had turned on his heel and left. made me giggle.

Wonderful job.


Author's Response: Glad you liked it. I do think Narcissa agreed with Lucius in theory, but I also think that the Blacks were even more militant than the Malfoys. Sirus' parents agreed with Voldemort, but we never hear of them "joining."

So far, this is my favorite chapter. Narcissa has always lived in her sister's shadow and in her husband's dim light. She was never her real own person. This showed that she has strength of her own. It may not be for herself, but it is her own. 10/10

Author's Response: Thank you. I think Rowling bore me out on Narcissa. She risked the displeasure of The Dark Lord to get Snape to protect Draco in HBP. I think she'd defy even Lucius to save her son.

22nd July 2005:
Wouldn't Voldemort be able to read Narcissa's thoughts about her never bowing to him? And wouldn't she get in trouble for it?

Author's Response: Legilimency isn't mind reading. Snape tells us that clearly. It's a sense or impression, pictures. It takes eye contact which Narcissa avoides disguised as timidity. It takes a conscious effort to pry into someone and why would Voldemort waste the effort for someone he sees as nothing more than arm candy?

8th May 2005:
brilliant, sheer brilliance. i love how narcissa is played up in this. ive always seen or read of her as just the trophy wife, like harry thought in the forth book. i can see the though dark compassion she has for unborn draco, if you remember how flustered malfoy was when harry insulted his mother. good job. x Ax2

Author's Response: Draco's devotion and the strength of Bellatrix made me think carefully about Narcissa before I wrote this. She is a Black. There has to be some of Sirius' arrogance and pride in her. I'm glad you liked it.

Review #18, by Strawcherry 

13th April 2005:
The last line said it all. "No, I am no Bella." Indeed she isn't. She's got more class than her sister could ever wish for, accepting her husband and the way he is. No, not only accepting it, she knows it, and uses it to her own advantage. Little do they know... The way you wrote her was different from what we usually see, she not the following, mindless, obedient wife, (you've shown us that before in 'Loss & Redemption'.) and I like that view of her very much. Beautiful.

Author's Response: Thanks for your sweet words. I can't see her as a mindless fool and I'm so glad that Rowling has born me out on this in HBP.

This was so haunting, and so Narcissa. You;ve done a great job of portraying Narcissa as a simple 'trophy' wife, but yet she has her own mind. Lovely descriptions too. Well done!

Author's Response: Narcissa knows the truth is that you are at your best advantage when others under estimate you. Thanks for the review.

you are such an amazing writer alpha. i think you could take any character in the world and make her your own. this is such a self-assured and confident portrait of narcissa. seeing the sisters together and comparing them, having her blatantly state that she is no bella is just incredible.

Author's Response: I always love your reviews. They are so meaningful. Thank you dear for your kindness and for taking the time to review.
