Summary: If a rose is called by any other name, does it smell as sweet? To Scarlet never realized how much fear a name could provoke. Throughout her life, the name Tonks had become as familiar as her right arm. She is estatic when she receives her letter inviting her to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Despite her happiness, she is confused at the name on the letter. How could one name transform friends into enemies? Who is Scarlet Black? But more importantly, who is she?

This is what she wants to know.

this story great but I'm confused with the whole last name situation is black or lestrange ????

Author's Response: I apoligize for not being clear. Scarlet's real last name is Black, although the name on her letter was Lestrange. This will all be explained in following chapters.

Author's Response: Will do.


Daughter of the Dark Side by Lyra Lestrange
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 305]

Summary: Past Featured Story

Lindsey Tonks appears to be a normal, almost invisible Hogwarts student, but underneath her is someone far from normal. What the world doesn't know is that Lindsey is the daughter of two well-known imprisoned Death Eaters, and has an identity she must hide from the world. Underneath Lindsey is a girl named Lyra Lestrange, a girl who is meant to be a secret forever. But will it last forever?

*Begins in GoF and follows the series through DH.

**Will appeal to fans of the Black family! Prominent characters are Bellatrix, Tonks, Andromeda, Sirius, and (to an extent) Narcissa.

Part Four Synopsis:

It's the summer after Albus Dumbledore's death, and the whole world is falling to Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Broken-hearted Lyra, unable to return to Hogwarts, must go into hiding with her family. It doesn't last long, and eventually Lyra is faced with a choice: join or die. Lyra's decision comes with many surprises, including a new ally who follows her to the final battle of good versus evil. While Lyra's path may seem clear, she finds herself torn between two sides for the final time, and in the end, despite tragedy and loss, Lyra accomplishes the impossible...which defies all of the agreements she and her family ever made.

Three years later, the fic has been completely finished! Enjoy reading it without having to wait for new chapters. Thanks to those who patiently waited and faithfully reviewed!

awww this is wonderful i am really happy her secret is out because it will make the story interesting.
Sirius dying is sad even though i knew he would it still upsets me.
I LOVE this chapter please keep updating

Author's Response: Thank you! When I started this, I don't think I was going to let her secret out until the very end, but that didn't seem to make sense and this works so much better! You're right, the story will become more interesting. I hated having to kill off Sirius, but it has to happen :( He's one of my favorite characters and I wish Lyra had known him longer so there would have been more scenes with him. Anyway, glad you liked this one!

i like the fact that she is so much like bellatrix and constantly uses bellatrix's signiture curse when she is angry. And i am sensing that she is going to try and find out as much about her mother as she can but i still can not figure out what may happen in the end i have been thinking about it but i am completely stuck! I guess that i will just have to wait for another update. Fantastic writing by the way you always amaze me with each update.

Author's Response:

She is going to find out as much about her mother as she can--that's actually the main focus of part three :) When I started this story even I wasn't exactly sure where it would go and how the end would be, but it worked out--however, it's quite a long way off and a lot of things will unfold between now and then! Thanks for continuing to read this and thanks for the review!

wow! loved it ! i mean you managed to fit Lyra in soo well it was just amazing and really natural and i cant wait for people to react to her secret and everything.
PLEASE PLEASE update quickly i am eager to find out what happened.
Absolutely brilliant !

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really happy you thought she fit in well, because sometimes it's hard to fit her in among the rest of the characters. I submitted the next chapter...I can't remember how long ago, so it should be out quickly! By the way, I like your username.

OMG i love this chapter i love the whole scene with just the three of them it was brilliant !!!!!!

I must say i am impressed i have a fascination with Bellatrix and i love the way that you portrayed her in this chapter !!!! absolutely amazing please keep updating

Author's Response: Thank you! I also have a fascination with Bellatrix, which is why I decided to write about her. She is one of my all time favorite HP characters even though she is so evil! The next chapter is in the queue, so the wait shouldn't be long!

ha ha no it fits her character well

Author's Response: I think so, too. She's supposed to be a good split between dark and light at this point.

loved it especially the part with Snape you could tell that he was really trying to bring out the the Bellatrix in her.
I was wondering because Lyra keeps using the unforgivable curse will she have a change of heart and reunite with her parents ?

Author's Response: Thanks! I can't say much about your second comment other than you'll see her struggle with dark and light throughout the whole story! We definitely haven't seen the last of her parents, but what Lyra will do when she meets them again is...well, there's quite a twist involved...

Author's Response: I know it was surprising, but I'm happy you thought it was a good twist! I promise to update soon! Stay tuned to see what happens with this :)

ha ha thanks the user name represents my obsession with Bellatrix i absolutely love her character.

Author's Response: So do I! She's evil and killed Sirius, but I became obsessed with her after the 5th movie, during which Helena Bonham Carter portrayed her excellently!

Reviewer: bellatrix-black-lestrange Signed
Date: 07/15/09 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue

i no i no Helena is amazing ! i'm so glad that she got to play her in the end

Author's Response: Me too! She is absolutely perfect! She did just as well in HBP.

yea ! : ) just what i've been waiting for i'm glad that you didn't make it mushy between them, i mean like them falling for each other and that because i really don't see Lyra doing that. I hope the updates are not too long but school comes first and i no what you mean about the work.

Author's Response: I've actually submitted the next chapter already, since it's a weekend, so I hope that won't take too long to get out. You're right about Lyra not wanting to fall for anyone, so she's being really resistant right now. It's not mushy...yet...but I think you may be surprised at what will happen. Hopefully that's a good thing :)

oh no major cliffhanger, quick! update i'm hanging on the edge here!
Love it and the way you have shown Bellatrix in a more softer light but not to much wouldn't want to ruin her born a death eater reputation!
(excuse my constant use of exclamation marks i've been doing it a lot lately force of habit)

Author's Response: Thanks! I really do believe Bella can have a soft side. This will be shown more, although she won't be too soft by any means, because I get what you're saying--she was born a Death Eater.

wow this is fantastic but hurry i'll keep looking for the next chapter i can't wait until bella gets out will lyra meet her ?

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm preparing the next chapter for submission right now. I can't answer your question yet, but I will say that you'll find out soon!

wow! you did update fast i mean i was just reviewing for the previous chapter like 5 minutes ago.
They definitely get better as they go along although i wish that Bella was closer to her sisters a little longer.

Author's Response: I was just as surprised! Usually it takes a week or two for a chapter to be validated but this one was approved after being in the queue for about two hours or so. I wish Bella could have been closer to them longer, too, but when Andromeda got with Ted it had to end between her and Bella. Although, as you know, she is still close to Narcissa. She drifted apart from them during the years she dated Rodolphus, but she stuck with Narcissa and would have stuck with Andromeda if it hadn't been for Ted.

yeaaaaa finally she has met narcissa good i have been waiting for this i like her constant use of using the unforgivable curse very good

Author's Response: Thanks! Many people don't like how she uses a lot of Crucios but I kind of like it because I think it rounds out the story well...I mean, she has to have some dark and some light in her. I don't feel so crazy now that I know I'm not the only one who likes this part of the story (I swear I'm not twisted!).

ahhhhh yes tonks and lupin love the chapter but i cant help but think that half of Lyra is ok with Remus yet the Lestrange in her says its wrong i dont maybe its just me.
Great story update soon i want to see what happens next

Author's Response:

Yes, the Remus and Tonks chapter :) You will find out what Lyra thinks of Remus (most of it will come later on) but for now I can say that she thinks he's a good man but absolutely wrong for her cousin because of his werewolf condition! I plan on updating soon!

wow very unexpected but good, i cant wait for the Nott problem to come it is intriguing. I was hoping that Lyra would embrace the dark side more instead of trying to challenge the anger in another way but i may be wrong. Please update soon

Author's Response: Lyra's dark side hasn't faded entirely. You'll see more of Nott in the next chapter! Hopefully it will be out soon. Thanks for the review!
