I'm so glad you included the scene between Arthur and Lucius - that Arthur, while hating Lucius, could nevertheless see him as a fellow human being in his loss. I can't help feeling that Lucius would have acted very differently had the positions been reversed.
The other character moment that stood out was Regulus meeting Severus for the first time. I've not seen anything about them at that age before, and I loved the idea of Sirius' badmouthing Snape leading to Regulus admiring him. How galling Sirius would find that!
I am a little confused about Narcissa's death - is it significant, who killed her? I wasn't sure if I missed something there.
I would also have liked to know more exactly about what Lucius (or rather Severus) was planning to achieve with the essentia? Not that it ultimately mattered to the story, but you piqued my curiosity.
