This is one, by far, of my favorite work of yours. Of all pairings this one works the best, and how you have made them come alive is wonderful. You have a mastery in political intrigue, and in this story you have manage it to once again, make it shine. Beautiful.

Oh the flying was so adorable! I'm glad these two get some fluff in between the harder moments. And it was quite a different take on Hermione's reaction - which was so refreshing! I loved it.
I absolutely adore your take on Narcissa's character - that's very close to how I personally perceive her, so for me the characterization is perfect (obv this applies to Draco and Hermione too, but in this chapter Narcissa stood out the most, I think). I guess what I like the most about her support to the cause is the surety of it (I'm not sure that makes sense? lol sorry). What I'm saying is, I feel like she would lie to anyone's face and dare them question the truth of her words. It's a sort of strengh different to the most common, defiant one, I guess.
All in all, wonderful chapter as always - every one of your updates never fails to cheer me up xox

I don't really get this whole person in the horrid office thing. Why did draco hug her tight? Why does hermione resent whoever it is walking inside the office? When did that person get inside the office because i thought the way in was through the tapestry? Can you please explain because I'm lost. Thank you 3

While I still vehemently disagree with you about how Hermione would choose to dispose of a body ( ;) ), this story continues to amaze and delight me. I think I can see the resolution (Minister of Magic Draco, after a few more convenient deaths/disappearances), I am tremendously enjoying the journey.
And I can't wait to see how those who Fled to France respond to that...

Narcissa continues to be something of an enigma and I love it. I wouldn't say Hermione is in a good position, but I am glad she's finding unexpected support. I could feel her frustration with having to listen to Dolohov condescend to her, and I'm glad Draco could remind her that her willingness to do all this is what makes her so brilliant. Thanks for updating!
