I like the characterization of Narcissa. Her feelings for Voldemort were done well, as was her decision to go to Snape for help.
I thoughtit was excellant! Any mother would be upset over her child, if that child was in danger.
Narcissa seems to be the oposite of her husband, wanting to see her son suceed in life. rather than spend his life killing people.
Itis obvious that the Malfoys are a 'dysfunctional family. Everyone does their own thing. I guess being rich and wealthy in the Wizarding world does'nt amount to happiness.
