- Interesting start. Since Bellatrix was at the Potters, did someone else attack the Longbottoms? Or are they all right?
Author's responseYou'll see soon enough. All I can say is that I've carefully considered the impact this would have on every canon character I plan on using.
- Interesting premise, Bella is cruel and still evil yet sympathietic. I wonder how she will raise him to be good and noble when she lacks those same qualities herself?
Author's responseHer character won't be the same when you see her next. Remember, she will have had almost fourteen years of time raising an innocent child. It changes you. She won't train him to be noble, really, she'll just teach him to be honest when it counts. I'm a bit worried about turning her character into a Mary-Sue, actually, so I'm relying on you reviewers to help me avoid that.
- Now that'a a very interesting change on canon, I like this Bellatrix in that she's seen that she's made an error and is taking steps to correct it. Now, if she can get rid of the dark mark before Tom returns...
Meanwhile, with her raising him, Harry is going to be a far stronger subject than what Dumbledore's plans produced and I don't think Dumbles will appreciate being so thwarted.
