I adore this part. Narcissa lies to Voldemort, the one person who is meant to be one of the masters of occlumency and lies. She wasn’t trained well in occlumency as she had Bellatrix teach Draco instead of doing it herself, so she didn’t have the confidence in it. She did it out of love, and this is probably the one way to lie to Voldemort without him figuring it out, lying to protect your loved ones, as Snape had proved time and time again.
This shows what a strong witch that Narcissa is. It shows that someone who is more of a background character can change the entire events by something so small and great by being brave.
Seriously, I should be asleep. I’m so tired and need to sleep because I’m up in 6 hours and so far this week I’ve had about 9 hours sleep cumulatively. And i have to make my way to Liverpool Street with 2 cases during rush hour and I have one change at moorgate and it’s all stairs from one line to another. Annoying.
But I’m seeing Fran tomorrow and catching up on all her antics since she finished her PhD. Have so missed her! Fray-Jay will be reunited before we embark on our international escapades! So excited but so nervous, I am not a fan of flying :(
I’ve been up for nearly 20 hours. Why am I not sleeping??
