I love how simple this is and yet it's very striking. I loved the repetition of this line in the beginning and the end:
"He'd always loved clementines - so small, so sweet, and so satisfying in their delicate taste."
It tied the whole story together nicely and made it all very poetic. It's such a clever little line that stays with you even after you read it.
Lucius/Narcissa is something like a guilty pleasure for me and this is probably one of the best-written ones I've read by far. I loved how candid this is, and cute, but not horribly cute... it's just perfectly balanced. Lovely, lovely story.
Thank you for this really sweet and wonderful piece!

Lucius/Narcissa are my guilty pleasure, I love them so much.
I like clementines too. Funny, I'd never thought my favourite fruit would coincide with one of my favourite couples. But hey, it's a welcomed surprise. Haha.
I absolutely adore every single thing about this, I really do. I love the characters, the way it has been written and all of the lovely little lines that make me feel warm inside.
'He'd always loved clementines - so small, so sweet, and so satisfying in their delicate taste.' That has to be my favourite, I must say. I like its ironic touch.
I really cannot believe, however, that this only has two reviews so far. It makes me want to spam the hell out of it until there's about 149084. But I doubt that's allowed, the nasty TOS and all ;)
But anyway, I'd best stop. I have a tendency to ramble, and that never does anyone any good, haha.
So yes, this is definitely favourited and rated ten out of ten :)
