Wow, this was amazing. All the letters, the reluctant demeanour of our mystery character, Viktor fullfilling the firm determination of his youth. The newspaper articles in particular had a completely authentic tone. I don't want to give anything away, but there were definitely unexpected surprises, beautifully handled. The description of the mask (a small part I realise) was delightfully chilling. Of course as a proud Death Eater, I don't Agree with Viktor, or indeed with anyone here, but... wow. Yes, I was very impressed by the plot, the language, the characterisation, the distinctness of each character, and the development of our mystery character! Very well done, O mystery author! Thank you for such a beautiful work.
