I know you've written tons since this but I wanted to read the ending because I was getting a bit attached to your Drakey-poo.

So you've made Bella actually useful for something other than mindless destruction... and kept her in Helena-Bonham-Carter-ish character... though you've moved more into book-canon when it comes to characterisation since she walked into this fic wearing that dress from the ending of the OotP film, so well done.

Cissy is lovely in this chapter especially. You can really link her to the woman at the start of HBP, and it's really cool and stuff. Her dialogue specifically stood out to me as being pretty damn awesome, so I don't know if I'm just picky or what.

And Draco himself is just Draco. Scared, with a newfound healthy survival instinct, and a little bit silly. I love your Draco and I can't wait to see where you'll take Detox.

Author's Response: Hello, again!

That's quite alright. I kind of like having a complete set of your reviews on this story. I'm OCD like that.

Bella was useful, I suppose, in a very cruel, twisted way. I found it interesting to start to draw major distinctions between her approach to the situation and Narcissa's, keeping in mind what will happen at the end of this summer at Spinner's End.

One thing about writing a multi-chaptered story is that sometimes you don't end up precisely where you thought you were going to when you started writing. I meant for this to be a "Draco story", but it also become partly a "Narcissa story" along the way. Her actions at the beginning of HBP and the end of DH made an impression on me. Perhaps more than they should have, but at any rate I felt the need to explore her character more in this story.

I really need to get back to Detox. I have a lot of ideas for that one and I'm struggling a bit to figure out how to sequence them.

Thanks again. These reviews make my day because like I said, you're honest about what you don't like. Good stuff.
