Chapter: Courage Shines

I knew she'd have to go through a conflict just like Draco, and she really changed the course of the story. You gave us a great look into her decision. Wonderful job!

Author's Response: Thank you! Her character is funny that way, because she kind of was the catalyst for them winning the war, and yet she gets almost no credit whatsoever. It really would have been quite simple for You-Know-Who to just kill Harry again and be done with it, but by lying she gave Harry another chance and effectively won the war for the other side. Thanks for the review!

Chapter: Courage Shines

That was truly amazing -- it felt just like I always imagined Narcissa; there was not a trace of OoCB -- and oh my god, I was gripping my computer and my knuckles were turning white. I saw and though that it would be boring, short, and shallow -- no, that was probably one of the best short stories I've ever read in my life! Just brilliant!

Author's Response: Oh wow, thank you! I'm really glad you liked it! :D

Chapter: Courage Shines

This story is an interesting concept, and I think you did a great job of showing exactly why Narcissa made that choice. I think it's an interesting choice, and as with many other things in canon, ultimately it comes down to love.

My favourite line is definitely this - Maybe I had more in common with them than I thought. I think that's really an idea that could go both ways, and it's often something that comes up in war, when those fighting recognise that their enemies are simply human. And I loved how you connected it through Tonks, and through the idea of having a son for whom you would die.

I thought the idea that Narcissa hated dead bodies and almost seems repulsed by death is very interesting. In general I think she's an interesting character, because as far as we know, though she had ties with the Death Eaters, she never joined like Bellatrix did, and I think in this story you really show why not. Because I think Narcissa has experienced love in a way her eldest sister never has, which is why I think the idea of death repulses her. This line was great - Maybe I had more in common with them than I thought.

Somehow I think this story would have worked even better in present tense (not that I imagine you'll change it because that takes a considerable amount of time), just because of the immediacy of Narcissa's thoughts, although that is just m opinion.

Anyway, it was an enjoyable read, and you really fitted it around canon very well.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I loved that line too when I wrote it. I agree with what you've said about Narcissa, Bellatrix feels very blasé about death because she's never had anyone who she truly cares about, and can't even imagine what it would feel like to lose someone close to her because it's simply not a possibility. However, Narcissa has a family she loves and can't imagine losing, so that combined with her sister's cavalierness about death and such is what gave her a bit of a phobia of death, corpses and such. Thanks so much for the review, I'm glad you liked it!
