A new dark lord??????????!!!!!!!!!!?????!!!!! :o *lifts an eyebrow in shock* Lucius is twisted! Didn't he see what happened the last time? No way would Draco stand for Scorpio to become evil! Not after all that occurred before.
Anyways, great poem! It's nice to see what allegiance means to different people. :)
Author's Response: Lucius has his fantasies, but that's all they'll ever be. Hope he loves his grandson enough to offset the disappointment.
Author's Response: Somehow, I missed the review notice, but hopefully there's no time limit on appreciation. Thank you very much for reading (and enjoying!) the poem. :)
Lucius is SO FUNNY.
I really liked how it developed--he got more and more evil, until he climaxed with the war, then seemed to mellow..then he had high hopes for the evilness in his grandson. HA. So good.
Author's Response: Lucius is a product of nature and nurture. No one forced him down the path he chose, but he was highly encouraged and no doubt hoping similar encouragement would influence Scorpius. Thank you for liking the poem!
I am so busy, but if you keep publishing these poems advertising your story, I might give in and read it. ;) This was a great poem, rather creepy and sad at the same time.
There's a Who song that goes "No one knows what it's like to the bad man, to be the sad man, behind blue (or in this case gray) eyes." I don't think Lucius would consider his life sad, but that's good in a way, because if he sat around considering how wasted all his efforts have been, he might AK himself (which wouldn't make loads of readers sad, but Scorpius would cry).
I hope you will break down one day and read my Scorpius and Rose stories! Until then, I'm glad you read this poem! :)
I really liked this, and i usually don't like poetry but reading all of your stories i knew you must make it amazing :)
And it was, it really showed what his drive was that kept him encouraging and pushing Scorpius to join the Knights
Author's Response: Thank you! Lucius' dream won't come true, but that won't stop him from hoping and trying to make it a reality. I'd feel sorrier for him if I didn't pity Scorpius so much. :D
wow i don't usually read poetry but this is really good! It adds a layer to lucius' personality and character - i liked it a lot :)
Author's Response: Aw, thank you! Lucius has layer like an onion, and he sprouts little white hairs, :D.
As you know, I don't read poetry too often--it's one of the flaws in my personality--but I needed something quick to read this morning and since you're my role model I decided to try this entry. I must begrudgingly admit, I really enjoyed this poem. It quickly and accurately tells the story of Lucius Malfoy's life and explains a lot of his actions. Whatever decisions he's made can be traced back to his philosophy on life. While the conclusion could frighten some, we have to consider that Scorpius is not Draco. Scorpius is of age, intelligent, and very powerful. That alone could make him a fair match for his grandfather. Also consider that he seems to have Rose Weasley at his side. She's intelligent and powerful (remember, her Mum took our Bellatrix LeStrange in the Final Battle). I'm not worried as long as nothing extremely traumatic happens to Scorpius (like what's going to happen to Auntie Bellatrix in my story) to turn him to the Dark Side. If he goes that way, we're all damned. Excellent piece of writing, as always and even if it's poetry:D
Even if it's poetry.
You always manage to meld insight and humor in your reviews, and if you stopped reading my stuff I'd probably cry (and have no reviews on some of my poems :D).
I know you have faith in Scorpius, but I'm going to do my best to make readers worry. That's what keeps them coming back, worry and wondering what happens next. ;)
