The Scales of Balance

willow-treeSummary: When Lucius Malfoy and Severus Snape return to Britain ten years after the war, after waiting for the public fervor to die down, they found out that the young witch that they grew to like has become reclusive and broken. This leads them to try and win her over and help her regain her confidence after they discover that it was her two best friends who caused her to be in this state. When Ginny Potter and her four children get thrown into the mix of people hurt by Harry and Ron, the Order finds themselves trying to track down the cause of their hatred; a dark curse from the Lestrange Vault. All the while, the threesome has to realize that being a family doesn’t necessary mean just two people.

Status: Meh

Opinion: This fanfiction started off well, with detailed information about the characters and why the situation seemed so bleak when the two wizards arrived. However, as the story progressed, there were a lot of explanations that seemed to be skipped or basic relationship building needs that were skipped. The fact that Hermione was broken, yet sexually deviant seemed to be a huge contradiction. The relationship between Snape/Hermione and Lucius/Ginny were too quick and lacked basic emotions. The best relationship build was between Hermione/Lucius in the end. The writing was a little stilted and it often was difficult to determine exactly where the characters were or how they were feeling. Ginny’s deception was not very obvious either and threw me out of the story as it didn’t seem to fit properly.
