Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Missingviolet
Oh my!
this is incredibily sad. very very sad!
wonderful character study!
i never knew much about these sisters three, except one of them killed sirius black.
makes sense now, now much she would hate black for destroying her sister.
anyways, as usual everything is beautifully written.
u really should publish something one day!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from LeaFairy
Oh, this was fantastic! I really loved reading about the lives of the Black sisters. Very interesting that Narcissa had a crush on James Potter too... And I could totally see Sirius' reading her diary to James, the little shit! lol.

I also loved the part when Andromeda was kicked out and Narcissa gave her her own money. Nicely done. And the first meeting between the last remaining sisters back in the garden at the end was brilliant. And aww, about Teddy changing his looks to look like his aunt. How cute.

As for the Draco/Harry bit, well they aren't a pairing I really like, but that's more because I'm a HUGE Hermione fan, and when reading HP fics I usually only read stories about her. *shrugs*

Anyhoo, this was really great and I definitely look forward to reading more from this world/verse/series! Thanks so much for writing!!

***Also for some weird reason when I was reading the Bella parts I kept thinking - "She sounds a lot like Faith, like Faith could totally be her daughter" - *shakes head* Weird I know.

I'm so glad that you liked this! I adore your reviews because they're so detailed= they make a happy author.

Trying to figure out the interplays in sibling relationships is always interesting. Sometimes fascinating, but never dull. I think that for Narcissa, she would have always been the one Black that always stood out a bit- so she would have been able to keep her love for Andromeda from turning into hate. Bella could never have forgiven her best friend the betrayal of their way of life.

I don't know what it is with me lately, but I seem to *adore* Draco/Harry. I'll be honest, I'm sort of terrified I won't be able to do them justice- but fingers crossed.

Stick around, because I'm definitely going to love playing in this verse. Lots of unusual pairings that I can hopefully convert you to.

Bellatrix and Faith- it's insane but true. THose two could definitely be related.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)MyTia
Good story! In the books we meet the Black-Sisters as adults, with not much background to their childhood. This is a nice view into that, with the interactions of them making them more "real".

I like the changes from canon, too - it all comes together :)
Comments from author:
Thank you for reviewing!
1)I always like exploring relationships between siblings, they can be so complex and twisted.
2)We all have had our roads to travel to get to the points where we're at now. I was just interested in trying to explain the Black sister's paths.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Auntie always had such lovely things, probably a byproduct of wanting a daughter her whole life but being saddled with her two louts of sons- Reggie the creep and Sirius the bastard. This was probably a main reason why the girls were always so warmly welcomed at their aunt’s home.--- ahhh ahahahahhaa

because Dolphus was a poof and Bella knew that he would never force her to do anything sexual . Bella was determined to save herself for the man that made her feel , think. Bella wanted a great passion, somebody to match her intelligence and temper- she wanted to feel love.--- sooo interesting. Never would have thought of her hubby like that but the need for passion totally fits

Cissa’s crush on James and what Sirius did – love it. Love that little bit because yeah, I imagine James did visit and Sirius totally would have pulled that jerk move.

Well, suffice it to say that Andromeda Black lost her virginity to Theodore Tonks behind the rosebushes- and we’ll leave that unfortunate business there.—oh, hahaha, too funny/cute!

How Cissa & Bella reacted to Andi/Tom—love how you so easily described their reactions in just a couple sentences. Loved what Cissa did.

Cissa’s reaction to Lucius joining in the fight and her vow- beautiful and sad.

Loved Cissa & Andi reconnecting at the end… and HP/Draco at the end? Well, icky for me but interesting nontheless.

A beautiful and truly unique tale. Thank you for sharing, I absolutly adore it.

Comments from author:
I can just imagine Walburga being nice to the girls in spite of her burgeoning insanity. SHe would have likely clung to old pureblood traditions and tried in her own ways to bring the girls up the best she could.

Well, the thing with Bella and Rodolphus is that we all know how deeply and psychotically she is in love with Riddle. She went to prison for more than a decade for him, she was his most fanatically devoted follower- that's not pure loyalty, that's the most obsessive kind of love there is. Even Rowling said so. There are a *lot* of speculations that she's actually sleeping with him.

Can't you imagine young Sirius doing such an assholish thing like that? While everyone likes to fawn about him being super pretty when young, we have to remember that he was also pretty much a douche before Azkaban. He was conceited, arrogant- he was only loyal to *his* circle of friends and the rest of the population were pretty underneath his notice. He didn't even realize the trouble that his poor brother had gotten into until Regulus was dead. It's freaking insane to me that he didn't try to repair his relationship with his brother in more ways, I always felt like he traded Reggie in for James and Remus. He should have made more of an effort. *Touchy subject for me*

I think that Cissa, despite being the youngest and the weirdest- would have totally tried to find a way to help her sister. Both Bella and Cissa loved Andi, but Bella could never forgive her sibling the betrayal of everything they stood for and Cissa could.

Draco was always the light of his mother's eye. HBP- that woman does everything she can to save him.

I'm so happy you liked it and I always adore your reviews, they're fabulous with detail!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)Joyful
I love it!

You might want to put a little note in the beginning that you changed Ted Tonks, 'cause in the books he's a muggleborn wizard--a Hufflepuff, I think--not a muggle. Nymphadora is a Hufflepuff, that I know for sure.

Love it though.

More HP stuff is always good.
Comments from author:
I think that for the purebloods, the fact that he was a muggleborn was hardly better than him being a muggle. My thoughts will make more sense as the story goes on.
I pwomise.

I'm just replying to your email right now, let me know if it goes through- my university email has been super shitty lately.
