Black Dawn by voldiegirl
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: It has been five years since the Second Wizarding War, and Scarlet Black is still trying to piece her life back together. Working as a columnist by day and helping select Death Eaters get their lives back on track, she lives each day with the hope of a better tomorrow.

Then, when an old enemy she helped put behind bars escape, Scarlet is tossed into a whirlwind of events that put her out of harm's way and into the reach of the one who still blames her for his brother's death-Charlie Weasley.

What happened during the past five years? Can two enemies work together for their own survival? Will there finally be a day when Scarlet can stop running?

She knows her past, but the future is another subject altogether...

*This is the sequel to "The Secret Life of Scarlet Black".

I really enjoy all of your writing and I absolutely loved this last chapter! I can really feel the emotions Scarlet is feeling for Charlie and over her loss of Fred - that is the mark of a great writer!

Now, there is one thing I am confused on.
Early in the story it seemed as if (the baby) Fred was the child of Scarlet. At least, that's what I assumed, considering that she told Molly she was pregnant, and that she was supposed to be living with George after the baby. I didn't know the baby wasn't hers until the miscarriage chapter (I actually wasn't quite sure what you were saying about the miscarriage. Did she still have a baby? What happened?), and even then for some reason I thought the baby was hers. It wasn't until this chapter, Chapter 10, that I realized the baby wasn't hers, but George and Angelina's. That confused me and I think could be cleared up a bit.

Also, we never learned Angelina was George's wife up until this point. Now, I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, but I had no idea they were married and had a child either. I knew George had married someone, as stated in one of the first chapters, but I never saw that it was Angelina. Perhaps that could be cleared up on too.

Another thing is that I find it hard to believe Scarlet had never noticed that her column had been written under a pen name until she went to Romania. Had she never had the urge to see her column in the paper before, or is there some reason to why she hadn't read it?

Those are just little things a fan like myself had picked up as I read. I love your work, keep doing what you're doing! I look forward to reading more chapters in your series!

Author's Response: Thanks! Okay, so the confusion was intentional (sorry, though). The reason it is never stated that Fred and Angelina were married and that Fred was there is because Scarlet herself at the time was refusing to admit and believe it. In her mind, she should be in Angelina's place and Fred should be hers, but since this isn't reality, nothing can really be stated directly. I will try to go back and clear things up a tad bit more on that front. I did not catch the whole pen name issue until you mentioned it. In my head, I thought I had written that she started using a pen name once she arrived in Romania, so I'd like to apologize for that as well.
