Review #1, by MrsJaydeMalfoy Elastic Heart

6th March 2016:
Hello there dear! I'm here for the HPFF review-a-thon!

I've been meaning to stop by and review this since I read it for the Writer's Duel, and I figured now, when it can help HPFF's fundraiser, was as good a time as any!

I really enjoyed this snapshot into young Narcissa's mind! I definitely got the feeling here that's she's kind of torn between the two extremes - she's not as 'gung-ho' over Voldemort as Bellatrix is, but she doesn't approve of Andromeda's choice of boyfriend, either. I think sisters tend to be that way - one of them a mix of the other two, so that was a very realistic portrayal and I really liked it!

I think that most people tend to lump Narcissa in with the 'bad' crowd, if that makes any sense, so it's really nice here to see you giving her a different set of thoughts and beliefs, and really exploring her character. The ability to get into her mindset so well just shows how truly talented you are!

All in all, this was a wonderful one-shot, dear, thank you so much for writing it and participating the Writer's Duel! Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed it

Review #2, by nott theodore Elastic Heart

5th March 2016:
Hi there! I'm here reviewing for the Fundraiser, and since I got the chance to read the Birthday Writer's Duel stories but not review them, it's great to leave you some comments on this!

I loved seeing what you'd decided to write about for this prompt - it was so great to see the variety in the entries, and the fact that you chose Narcissa was so original. We don't see many stories about her at all, and even fewer that show her as a teenage girl. I always imagined her kind of stuck between her sisters at this point, so I love that you've written about the way that she's getting the letters from Bellatrix and still communicating with Andromeda. It can't be easy for any fifteen year old to be stuck in the middle of her family and be mediating between people she loves, especially when she knows that her duty to her family lies on the same path as Bellatrix.

I thought the way that you wrote the relationship between the two sisters that we see here well - it was great to see Narcissa trying to talk to her from the point of view of someone who's still close to the family, but then Andromeda standing up to her - perhaps more easily than she would to Bellatrix - over her beliefs. It was great to see Andromeda characterised that way, too - she's much bolder than we normally see her. The ending was interesting, too - I liked the fact that you reminded us that she's still a normal teenage girl and has ordinary problems too.

This was a great story, and thank you for entering the Birthday Writer's Duel!
