I love your constant references to the Holocaust. It's very intriguing, seeing as I love history. I am a very sensitive person when it comes to writing or movies because I really put myself in one of the character's shoes. For this story, I chose James. I found myself heartbroken and when I was trying to sleep that night I couldn't help but burst into tears. You are an amazing writer. I love stories that I can get into deeply. Update ASAP.

Oh, I love the use of the French. I am in the midst of learning it and I get really excited when I recognize what your saying.

Author's Response: Those references to the Holocaust are, for the most part, unintentional; they\'re a direct consequence of what JKR wrote about purity of blood... Denuncing nazism is absolutely not the main purpose of this story, though I admit there are very strong similarities between Hitler\'s ideology and Voldemort\'s. I am sorry to learn I made you burst into tears -- though at the same time, I am very happy you were able to get into the story so deeply. I understand why you felt so sorry for James -- he\'s so cold and distant towards Marie-Antoinette that I had to write a few paragraphs in his point of view, to explain his behaviour. Yes, he is heartbroken.

I\'m glad you liked my using French, here and there :D. I am using my French origins in every story I write, though I\'m using them rather discreetly usually. This is THE story in which I constantly refer to France and French, seeing the main character is French (I am even translating this story into French). Good luck with learning it -- it is a truly beautiful language, but it\'s rather complicated sometimes...

Thanks for the review! I\'ll try to update fast, as I\'m FINALLY on holidays...
