Heart-wrenchingly beautiful. The pain of loss is palpable in your writing, and the anger at those around you carrying on, as though this isn't the most important thing in the world.

Great take on Narcissa, and all her upper-class prejudices. Your descriptions capture the essence of a mother, wanting the best for her child. I like that you show her gradually recognise that Harry is, in fact, right for Draco, and that they love each other, and finally accept that.
Thank you so much!! *hugs*

I'm so happy that my Narcissa rang true to you - at the end of the day, she would do anything, accept anyone, for the sake of her son, wouldn't she? (and, had he lived, she'd eventually made Lucius accept Harry too ;)
