Nice story; you just seem to be getting better and better!
I like how you've fleshed out Marlene's character and made her appealing to Travers. Travers, on his part is a complex minded jerk... er guy, I mean.
It shows what fear- fear of Voldermort does to people. It ruins lives and it appears at the end that Travers would rather be dead than lead this useless, dummy life.
Author's Response: *huggles Maria* I'm glad that you enjoyed my take on Marlene. I used a lot of creative license with her since not much is known about her in canon. As for Travers(again - not much canon information on him), yes he is a jerk and he realised to late his true feelings for Marlene. Thanks for the review, dahling! ~Stacy~
Stacical! *tackles* First off, I'm so sorry it took me this long to get to your awesome fic. I still maintain what I said before. This is the best fic you've written so far.
the whole fic was superb, awesomely written, brilliantly described and amazingly heartfelt (in a way that leaves you very sad at the end). You really gave a face and life to all those poor Death Eaters who must have lost so much in the course of their duty.
Marlene is also splendidly done. She is very believable, a very good and fleshed out character. And I love the whole theme of love or loyalties you presented.
Keep up the great work love, you are getting better and better every day. :) *huggles*=Sammy
Author's Response: *tacklsesquish* Not only do you help me brainstorm but you also leave a review! *huggles* I have to agree that this is the best thing I've written thus far, quite honestly it's my fave out of my works (though it pales in comparison to all of your works and most other fics that are out there). ~Stacy~
Wow that was really cool. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks! ~Stacy~
Sad. You capture his torment, his surprise that he could fall in love and yet his fear leads him in effect destroy his own soul.
Author's Response: I'm really glad you liked it and love the analysis you've given. It is spot on with what I was attempting to convey and I'm glad it read that way for you. :-D ~Stacy~
