In the Bellatrix fic, I really liked your description of Andromeda. We never hear much about her in the books, so I had thought she was more of the plain child. However, I like your description of Bellatrix as the plain one. Using the tree sap reference really emphasizes how strange and wild she is. It really compares her to a tree: strong, unflinching, doesn't care.
In the Ginny fic, I liked how she was in a dream for most of it. That shows how she really wasn't in control of her actions in CoS. This, also is a new take. I had never thought of Ginny as loving Tom Riddle, but it makes sense. Love is a strong motivation.
In general, I like the overall sense of longing and loss, but I think it would have been better if you'd posted the fics separately. The two pieces have different tones, and it was a bit difficult transitioning.
This first chapter was absolutely amazing. Your interpretation of Bellatrix was unexpected, and I love how you didn't reveal their names right away.
On the other hand, I don't understand the second chapter...?
But your writing style is exquisite ^_^
I followed the first chapter, but I am afraid the second chapter is a bit too surreal for me.
i really lyk this story , they way u have painted bellatrix lestrange
