Beautiful, very beautiful. The narration flows really perfectly, the characters are so deeply canon. All the characters are really canon and fit the time and situation. Their interaction, Draco and Narcissa are breaking my heart. Harry and Narcissa the gradual recognition... is just so wonderful and sweet and believable.
Lucius, oh god, Lucius... I never really like him... but the way his family remember him are just so true. I can just feel their pain.

it's really as if they remembered two different men, her husband and Draco's father.

that line won me over.

Thank you so much for this wonderful reviw, it means so much to me that my characters rang true to you!

Narcissa and Harry still have a long way to go (and she'll be one hell of a mother-in-law ;), but I think Draco will not allow them to back down again...
