|Reviews for Nott: Father and Son|
| pettybureaucrat chapter 1 . 4/30
I'd never read this one before, and it's really fascinating. You always make your characters both complex and simple. Theo obviously does not 'love' Pansy, but she is attractive enough and rich enough for him to put up with her and improve his family's standing and wealth.
I liked Theo's observation about Pansy's figure. JKR wrote about her as 'hard faced' if I remember correctly, but seemed to imply the she had other charms that attracted Draco.
I'd love to read more about these two if you ever feel inclined. Perhaps Harry will investigate the fate of the three witnesses against Grimley. Feel free to use this plot bunny if you're interested.

Wow. The Notts are true Slytherins. :)

Oh, the cunning of the Nott's, and yet, there is a sincere connection between father and son that seems almost paradoxical.

Oh, this is a wonderful tale. I'm so sorry that I've not looked thru your short stories as of late.
I'd post with the username that I have, but don't care to make the NSA's work easier. They can group all of my comments by ip rather than by username. Isn't that wonderful, eh?

Theodore may have escaped being part of the Pure Blood movement, but he hasn't escaped his
father, he gives me the freezing chills. I wonder if Theodore will become his own man after his father dies? I really hope so. My heart bleeds for his mother. I think there was more to her death, than was said. Interesting. But did he have no other choice than Pansy?

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)
