Please write more stories about Nott, you describe the character so well! I've already read this one two times and i really enjoyed it!

When I read this I got a very strong Elmore Leonard vibe, and I really can't think of a higher compliment than that.

Oh, well, I thought Theodore might rise above the history of superiority that his pater instilled in him, but he is just as sly and manipulative and unpleasant as his father and the Malfoys and the Parkinsons.
He may be even worse than his father because his allegiance is wholly to himself and the betterment of the family's position in pureblood society by increasing the wealth contained in his coffers. I don't think he is silly enough to align himself to another megalomaniac as his father did because he is enough of one to feel he does not need anyone to tell him how superior he is.
Theodore Nott features heavily in one of my stories too, but his family history is very different to the one you depict here.
Very interesting story.

Epic. I'm just going to accept this as canon in my own writings. Epic, I say.

Another story in which we see more of Nott! Very interesting, very well-written. I always like your stories and how they fill the gaps I've wondered about, and those I didn't even think of!
But this story doesn't seem completely compatible with your earlier Nott: Pencil portrait mystery. You mentioned there, twice, that his mother died when he was eight. Also I liked Nott better there, he didn't appear so evil then, nicer somehow.
Finally, I just saw you have posted your FIFTIETH story, about Luna. Congratulations, and thank you for keeping up writing. A toast to the next fifty! (I hope, although it would also be great to have an update on an unfinished series)

Very, very interesting story. Awesome characterisation. Thornton and Theodore are very 'Victorian' when it comes to love and business. A part of me is impressed with it, mostly I dont like such an aproach to life.

A wonderful introductory chapter. I'm looking forward to the rest of this story. You portray the Nott men just as I've always thought they would be. I'm a little surprised at Theodore's choice of Pansy Parkinson as his fiancée, but I understand why he's cultivating her as a business venture rather than romantically. Well done.

The Notts aren't the nicest of people are they? However, even whilst cold, calculating and power hungry they do appear to have some standards, even if most decent people wouldn't actually find much of merit in them. Both father and son are relentless in the pursuit of wealth and maintaining the standards they have been taught to live by and to preserve the position, history and bloodline of the Nott name.
It's seems poor silly Pansy is to be yet another of their manipulated dupes, although she herself is certainly no angel. In some ways the Notts are worse than the Malfoys, as they are more intelligent, devious and capable in what they do than Lucius and Draco. They would be far more dangerous enemies and Harry was lucky that the younger Nott stayed fairly 'neutral' in the fight against Tom Riddle.
Thank you for casting some light on the family, it's history and shared morals, (or more accurately lack of them). This was, as usual, an excellent short story and very much up to the high standards I and many others have come to expect from you.

Though I may not particularly like the subject matter of your stories, you never disappoint in the execution. I always enjoy your writing.

Well, it seems obvious what will happen in the future to young Mr. Parkinson. Potions accident at Hogwarts would be my guess. Evil never really leaves; it just changes its face and hands.
I like that the goblins are running Azkaban now, but I don't believe they're doing it for free. The Ministry may not be paying, but the money is coming from somewhere. I'll have to think on that. There haven't been any clues in your previous stories, have there?
So, Pansy wears a glamour rather than plucking her eyebrows. Wouldn't there be some kind of magical depilatory that would work better? I'm sure Lavender knows of one.
Was Theodore's mother's death really a tragic accident? The timing is suspicious. Would the effects of the Imperious curse be detectable after dying? It could easily be used to place someone in a situation that would be extremely dangerous to them. Does this thought cross Theo's mind, or is he still too young and naive at that point?
