First of all, Happy Slytherin Day!!

Second, OH MY MERLIN! I am utterly speechless. How can someone write like this? So beautiful, so evoking, so filled with flavours and perfumes, emotions and deep thoughts. How can this story have only 16 reviews?

This must be, surely is, the most beautiful Narcissa Post - Hogwarts story I have ever read and will ever read. I am hopelessly in love with it. The flow, it just streams so perfectly, so naturally. It's like every word was meant to be there and if only one of it was changed nothing would be the same.

How can I even start talking about Narcissa and Draco and Lucius when words don't seem to be enough to express my feelings. For sure she is the best Narcissa portrayal I have encountered yet. Everything about her from her deepest thoughts to her most visible emotions are so well kept in character that I can't possibly imagine her otherwise. Even Harry and Arthur who have become secondary or even tertiary characters in this piece are almost perfectly clipped from the books.

I loved how the tone of the story improved together with Narcissa's thoughts. From the dark, hopeless abyss we first read about her, she blossoms and gradually gains hope. The most eloquent paragraph for this is certainly the one when the grass and the food's smell fills her nostrils and her mind with hope of a better world, of a decent future. Your story has left me speechless. I guess that I can only say, and hope that you believe me when I tell you I loved it. It went straight to my heart and favourites :)

Author's Response: Wow, I am FLOORED by your review! I mean, people seem to like it, and I'm certainly proud of it, but really, it's the best you've read? Wow! :)

This was actually my first time writing Narcissa in depth, and I wanted to put a different spin on her by including a scene in which we don't know much about what the Malfoys are thinking. I see this imagined sequence of thoughts as the culmination of her taking the reins and saving what matters to her in the final battle. Despite all she's lost, she still has her family intact, and she still has a long life ahead of her. It sort of humbles her and makes her feel proud at the same time.

I'm so incredibly flattered by your review. It may be one of the best I've ever received. I'm sincerely glad that you enjoyed the story! :)
