so you wrote this 15 or so years ago but I just read it and fell in love with it. you did a brilliant job of portraying the black family, the shifting loyalties of Andromeda and Sirius, the dynamic of the sisters, Ted and Andy's slow burn romance, and the influences of prejudice. thank you for putting this out there!

Recently I came to remember one fanfic that I loved when I first read it maybe 10 years ago. Today I stumbled upon it online and reread the whole story and I have to say, my opinion hasn't changed a bit. Made me laugh, cry and wish I was in love. 10/10
Also loved the way you bringed all these characters to life.

I say Andromeda should run away with Sirius. Also Bella's comment is enough to scare the living daylights out of anyone.
| WhoCares chapter 16 . 9/30
Helena Bonham Carter is the best thing that's ever happened to Bella.

Idk if you’re still reading comments on here (it’s been 15 years after all), but I just want to say that I was SHOOKETH by your prediction about Helena Bonham Carter playing Bellatrix

Omg that Christmas present Ted got her? Oh my heart, too adorable

I loved this! The Andy/Bella dynamic absolutely made this story.

Your classmates at the workshop and yourself seem to have a good insight on your writing. Reading the previous chapters I thought that maybe there were a bit too much sentences along the lines of "why did she miss defence classes ?" or "even though Ted ennoyed her, she almost liked him..." etc... and for me, this falls in the scope of not trusting your readers because they already know the pair is going to end up together, and the dilemma that Andromeda is dealing with (pure blood vs mudblood) is litteraly at the core of this story. So obviously she would have these mixed feelings about Ted.
Even though I didn't want to bother sending a message about this, because honestly it's such a small detail and the rest is well written, but your commentary at the beginning of this chapter made me think of it.

I’ve been reading this nonstop. I would just like to say that your writing is beautiful and I love dad’s character. I can’t believe they kissed! Well now I am off to read the rest of this amazing story. Ted

This fic was absolutely amazing. I never really thought much about Andromeda, but this..really makes one wonder about her. I enjoyed it alot, thank you for writing this beautiful piece.

I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read this story. I recently recommended it on a FB post asking for stories about the Black sisters. After doing so I started reading it again and just couldn’t put it down. The relationship you created between Bellatrix, Andromeda and Narcissa was so touching in their youth, then twisted and destroyed by madness, bigotry and hatred in the end. I loved Sirius (come on, who doesn’t?) and Ted in this but my all time favorite line was uttered by Frank, “You know her family is bat shit crazy right? No offense.” Always cracks me up. It’s been almost 15 years since this story was completed but it will always be one of my favorites and I’m sure I’ll read it many more times for many more years to come. Thank you for this gem.

I never thought I'd be so captivated by an Andromeda fanfic (I mean, I didn't even give it a second thought) but your story proved me so wrong! This is probably one of my favorite stories - definitely a top 3 - and I'm so glad you finished it. Most stories that keep me on my toes tend to leave me hanging, and they never intend to finish it. Not you! So thank you a million times for that, and for being so creative and writing a story I've read over about 3 times! Absolutely in love with this.

This fanfic is SO AWESOME. It made me think about Andromeda Tonks's life in a way I haven't before. I wish it went on for more than 31 chapters.
