*dances* Thank you, honey! What lovely and thoughtful comments! I definitely see Harry's children being headstrong (like their parents) and leaping before looking. Couple that with them being very bright and it's a recipe for disaster. Good thing it all worked out for the best, with Severus ending up exactly where he needed to be. :) And yeah, Narcissa was a natural for this role. She had motivation and opportunity and I can see her being this devoted. Thanks again, bb!
