I understand where you're coming from I also started my long abandoned fic from scratch. This is a good start. I know want to know who this person is and what is the secret he's holding. Nice work with the description at the beginning of the fic. Cheers!
Oh Minna I absolutely love the set up here. I know all we get in the books is that he must have upset the Death Eaters, somehow, to justify his death, but this is such an intriguing premise. I can't wait to see where you take this.
