I love this...have never seen Harry being described so spot on and faithful to the young man we have learned to love in the books (I always think he is the one more difficult to get right)... and Draco being so very true to his canon self too. Using Narcissa's POV is fresh and very interesting to read - you have managed to make her so human - her intelligence, her way of caring and her prejudices, and her love for her family (her son, her husband, even Harry) comes through very powerfully without the text ever saying it out loud, and the fact that you convey everything through one event makes it very awe-inspring... your writing skill is remarkable! :)

Thanks for sharing... I am very much looking forward to knowing who is behind this one! :D

*hugs you* Thank you so much for this wonderful review, it means so much to me - I'm so happy you liked my fic!

For me, Harry's definitely the more difficult one to write! Despite all his straightforwardness and somewhat bumbling manners, he's definitely not a "simple" character (we wouldn't love him that much if he were, now would we? :)

I love the Malfoys! They're arrogant and mean and everything, but they're such a, well, real family - and once someone is accepted into this family (although it might take quite a while), they'll fully accept them, fight and stand up for them (yet Harry might have to realise that Narcissa'S still one hell of a mother-in-law ;))

♥!
