This just became my favorite Bellamort oneshot. Amazing job, I was blown away by your specific writing style, it's almost poetic. As for the relationship between these two, this piece defines it perfectly, more so than the fics where Voldemort hurts her. I always believed Bella was a bit darker than him xD

It is very romantic !
| Glass Dragon chapter 1 . 12/1/2011
I think you may have just now grasped the essence of Bellatrix. And for that I thank you.

This is perfect! I really love the way you capture the characters: very original.
It works well as a one shot, but I would like to see more of the story!
| Helen Young chapter 1 . 8/16/2011
This is really great. Intense love i suppose would tramp torture any day. With the combination of Bella's Love and Tom's Hate i believe they can accomplish great things. Great story. Love.

Dark, and extremely well-written! I loved it.
| paintedseagull chapter 1 . 8/5/2011
I am honestly at a bit of a loss for words to describe this. This is a very unique portrayal of these two. You truly catch the way his body and details ripping his soul literally mutilated him. I have never read about a vulnerable and human Voldemort. It is very eye opening and quite emotional. You really make the reader squirm a bit as they raw suffering and Bellatrix administering it.
| Mocharaid chapter 1 . 7/31/2011
All I can say to this is: Wow! :o I would love for this be made into a full multi-chaptered story! (I think I've said that about one of your Doctor Who oneshots too :P)
| LadyTaiyo chapter 1 . 7/30/2011
So well done and so sexy, one of the best stories I've ever read. : )
| Fenikkusuken chapter 1 . 7/30/2011
Very nice. Perfectly dark, highly disturbing and utterly twisted. I think you nailed the heart of their relationship with unerring accuracy.
| Greyella chapter 1 . 7/29/2011
What complex dark magic you delve into...fabulously written, and perfectly dark.
| LisbethsGirlfriend chapter 1 . 7/29/2011
This was beautifully written. Oh, Bellatrix, torture me 3

ZOMG U POSTED IT!
I am so, SO in love with this story... Its totally, uniquely, and wonderfully YOU... It highlights more than just the characters, but also a black dynamic, and intriguing take on a very different kind of sensuality.
I admit that I can't make a great assessment of things like characterization or canon-ishness, because I'm woefully inadequate when it comes to my HP canon knowledge, but, I also have a unique insight to offer in that I am reading this as a story in itself.
Its darkly beautiful, and sinfully delicious, twisted and scratches the kink-itch without being simply overt or pornographic for pornography's sake.
This is what I've personally deemed emotional!porn, or maybe, cerebral!porn. Being that you've done this so many times with respect to other fandoms, (specifically speaking, DW fandom), I can assert that you have this down to an ART.
A dark and twisted, yet strangely and genuinely unique ART.
The descriptions are amazing, and your atmosphere is superb. In those regards, you have no rival, in my humble opinion.
I've personally seen you make some rather... different... plot ideas WORK, simply because your execution is so flawless. Despite the fact that you write FANfiction, you build gothic worlds and deranged and yet consistent and in-fic believably motivated characters, that draw a reader in and hold them hostage to the perverse delights you offer up.
I'm so happy to see you posting some of the ideas that run through your mind, and I feel privileged and honored to be able to creep into this fandom's bushes and grab a peak inside through the wonderful stained-glass filter of your writing talents, that colors my perceptions in such a vivid way.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
I aspire to be able to paint such vivid portraits that don't fall flat and feel cliche, which, none of YOUR fiction ever finds itself in those awkward realms.
With respect and love, your (pretentiously named) friend,
| Janeway142 chapter 1 . 7/29/2011
Wow, this is such a lovely piece of work. I mean it is actually very beautiful. Expessions, feelings, pain and love...I was really moved by your character representations. Bellatrix was very believable, so well crafted, she was perfect. And Voldemort, although I didn't like the long hair verses the short hair (just my personal preference in men so you should take that comment with a lick of salt), I loved everything else. His urging Bellatrix to show her true powers and then enduring it, I was really moved when she kissed his face and he began to cry because of the pain. I absolutly love this story and hope you continue doing Bellamort pieces because truly have a talent for writing and I would enjoy seeing new pieces from you.
All the best,
| Rex768 chapter 1 . 7/29/2011
This is really exactly how I imagine their relationship to be, even in the canon. I bet this is what JK couldnt put in the books...its perfect as a one shot.
but a couple more chapters wouldnt go amiss ;)
