Bellatrix smiles often: a too-wide slash of red on her pale face that unnerves people. The smile turns vicious when she fucks Andromeda, dark eyes narrowing even as her lips stretch behind the frizz of wild black hair.
Narcissa rarely smiles. She communicates with arched eyebrows, approving nods; presses of her lips or fingertips. When she fucks Andromeda, her pouting lips draw back into a snarl. Afterwards, Narcissa gives a smile as wide and uncomplicated as her sprawl when she collapses beside her sister.
Andromeda’s smile is enigmatic. The middle child, keeper of secrets, always has a reason to smile.
