Wow.. I just. Wow. You just nailed both of these people perfectly, and Dolores was just so wrong. The premise of taking magic from Muggle-borns, Dolores violating Arabella's body and her mind, it was downright frightening. It really left me shaking, which means you really did an amazing, awesome job! :D It was just so intense, you really brought the reader literally in the room and the writing is so well done I could barely manage to pry my jaw off the floor.
Also, omg the dirty talk and Dolores showing Arabella what she wanted and how she wanted it.... guhhhhh! I love that Arabella's forceful character comes through this as well, I always felt that she was a real fighter and an underdog, so her voice comes through all of this in a great way too. She knows something's wrong, she knows she has the power to stop it.
The cats!! OMG, I felt like raising my fists and cheering at the end when the cats come to the rescue, that they were the ones all along who knew something was wrong. The way you brought each and every one of those cats personally to life (I loved their little scenes each and every time, the little quirks of their behavior, so perfect!), it was such an amazing ending and left me with a huge sigh of relief. There's just so much about this fic I can't possibly put into words, but you did an incredible job!
Wonderful, amazing and terrfic fic, mystery author! Thank you so so so much!
