    Summary: Alone in the Manor in the wake of her husband’s arrest, Narcissa Malfoy finds that she does not know what to do with her hands. Oneshot, 2,845 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Some people have difficulty seeing the humanity in the Malfoys, but this quiet little fic does the job splendidly. It neither belittles Narcissa nor ignores her, but instead takes this little-seen character and breaths a lonely life into her. Yet there is a strength in this Narcissa, a feeling that she is only bending to the wind, not breaking in it. It’s a puzzle to figure out from exactly where her actions are coming from, but that seems to me quite fitting for a woman under such tight control, and intentional from an author of the same. In her upset, Narcissa remains aristocratic, and we are reminded that not all evil is total and that Death Eaters have something to lose in this war as well.

    Why You Might Not Care: This is a tight little character piece about Narcissa Malfoy, and if neither of those things tickle your fancy, you’ll probably be bored. If you — like me — love a thoughtful, well written piece and damn the subject matter, then you will enjoy it.
