Quodpot - Round 3
I am making the ill advised choice to read this without familiarity with Static, cause I live on the dangerou side when I HC.
Fank/Narcissa is such an intriguing ship! Was it assigned to you in the challenge, or did you choose it? I notice that this story is labeled as AU, but Static is not. I’m curious what parts of canon you kept.
Narcissa is a really interesting character to me. Family is very important to her, but your story makes me wonder how who she was would have changed if she hadn’t wound up with Malfoy. Whoever she was with I think her priority of her family would trump all else (as we saw demonstrated in Deathly Hallows), so if she married Frank, perhaps her blood elitism would take more of a backseat, if not be challenged altogether. The fact that she is worried about her mother labeling Frank as a blood traitor more than she is worried about him actually being one kind of hints at that for me.
Yes, Frank should totally tell Druella to stuff it in her bum. I’d pay money to see that.
This piece was surprisingly cute, but with undercurrents of darker things. The talk of Voldemort’s rise to power. The implication that things could get a lot worse for the couple once Druella meets Frank. The whole canon thing, not knowing how far you’ll go with AU for this. But in the midst of all that subtle angst, it is a very sweet moment.
I honestly never expected to adore this couple the way I do now! I was a little skeptical but so intrigued by it but your characterization is so wonderful and I want to read so much more of them! What a great, incredible series this is!
