Narcissa Malfoy, Bellatrix Lestrange: Silene Noctiflora

December 29, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Silene Noctiflora” is a Harry Potter fanfic starring Narcissa (not yet Malfoy) and Bellatrix (not yet Lestrange). It’s been written by Diabólica.

This story is told from eight-year-old Narcissa Black’s POV. She finds herself helping Bellatrix put a questionable plan into practice.

Most dark fics out there are mere exercises in exhibitionism (“Should it be dark? Then I’ll have this male character rape her, vomit on her, pee on her and everyone will sympathyse with him and think this fic is super dark, and I’ll look like a fanfiction superstar!”). Not this one; it’s a genuinely dark story. Yes, it does contain violence—hence the rating—but the author clearly didn’t write it just because she could. Most importantly: unlike many dark fic writers, Diabólica does *not* try to induce us readers to view the characers’ twisted actions as somewhat justifiable. Their misdeeds are what they are.

The fic is very well-written. I love little Narcissa’s voice. The plot and the characters are entirely believable; except for the magic, this could be a real story about real people and their real cruelty.
