Ooh, intriguing. I can't quite decide what Cissa's motivations are. Equal parts attraction and wanting family approbation, I suppose. Love the contrast between Bella and Andy. You take JKR's faint suggestion of irony and built it into am uch stronger picture. Thanks.

A well written little story! I never thought how powerful "I do" could be. You demonstated that very well in your story. Good job!

Beautiful!! And so very clever...your hook was perfect, and incredibly intriguing. The Black sisters are such an interesting trio, and your character study was wonderfully insightful. Well done!

It's rare to see fics from Narcissa's PoV--this is a great one. I'm not sure that Bella signed her fate with Voldie by marrying Lestrange, but the premise is a really interesting one.

Yay for seeing another one of your fics up! <3

Oh, that was terrific, Arya. :) Not much more to say - very well written.

Wow, Arya, you rock!

I love it when a fic throws open one of those cool inter-character dynamics that you just know JKR loved when she created it, but hasn't been able to fully explore it (as of yet). And the Black sisters is a wonderful example of this. You highlight the sureness of Bellatrix and contrast it with a well implied sureness in Andromeda, in order to leave Narcissa in that most fundamental of human condition, which is being torn in two directions.

Who doesn't feel like that sometimes? And that's part of the draw appeal of this one-shot. Appealing to something in the reader.

And then, of course, it's just so annoyingly clever (annoying in the sense that I wish I could be that clever). The two words hook just had me instantly.

And finally, I loved your tactile descriptions of Narcissa. The way you have her finger her robes and the subtle way you show her weakness through her attachment to material items. I like the smile, too.

So yes, a clever, insightful and beautifully written story. Thank you!
