And then there were tears.

I'd like to think that deep down bellatrix still held love for Sirius and it was the maddness that helped her cope. I like the mingling of voices in this so much. It just broke my heart because the voices (to me) seemed like the rational bellatrix (the pre-voldemort bellatrix). I find the black family dynamic so facinating and heartbreaking and I love it when people "get it right."

This was a pleasure to read. Call me a masochist but I love it when writers break my heart and make me feel. Major props for that. :)

I liked this; the flow of the thoughts in parenthesis definitely gave the piece a sort of rhythm, and the idea of them running on the beach was creative.

This is excellent. I loved it, it almost made me cry.

Wow... The litany of Bellatrix's thoughts running amok and yet in a strangely sensible fashion was what totally stunned me. In a good way. Usually, when I see a fic (even such a short one) with, ahem, rather long paragraphs and no promise of a dialogue in the near future to rest eyes on, I don't bother to read. The cadence of Bellatrix's thoughts was absolutely mesmerizing. Wonderful!

Wow.

That's really powerful.

I love the stream of consciousness thing, that's awesome.

This is fantastic )

I like this one! The writing style, with the dashes and parentheses, works really well here to convey Bellatrix's state of mind. I like how you made her a bit more human than how she's normally portrayed - I'd like to think she feels SOMETHING other than happiness after she kills her cousin.

i like it, personally , i think Bella doesn't feel reorse, but don't let that put you, off, it's just my opinion, i truly think it's a nice wee one-shot, it shows the madness within

heal my bleeding heart

Wow I love this, my two favourite characters :) I love it when writers give Bellatrix a bit more depth and you've done really well here. And I've never seen a fic about Bellatrix after she kills Sirius. Really good

This is wonderful! I honestly can't say it any better than that... You can feel the poor woman's grief with every word. I think you've done a great job, especially since JK Rowling doesn't give us much in the way of Bellatrix' thoughts. She seems very real, very 3d, which is a pleasant change. Oh, and I absolutely love the bits in brackets, nice touch!

I think you've gotten Bella dead on. Keep writing
