[FIC] Of Vials Blue and Shades of Grey (Lucius/Narcissa, Lucius/Tonks, others)

Belatedly x-posted - apologies if you see this more than once.

Title: Of Vials Blue and Shades of Grey (NC17, 13K)
Author: deslea

Pairings: Lucius Malfoy/Narcissa Malfoy, Lucius Malfoy/Nymphadora Tonks, Nymphadora Tonks/Remus Lupin, Draco Malfoy/Astoria Greengrass
Summary: Narcissa knows there is another woman - but when she learns who and why, she must make hard choices to bring them all through a hell of someone else's making. A journey of silent dignity and selflessness. Narcissa's perspective on The Blue Vial. (You can read this on its own, but if you're going to read both, it's probably better to read Blue Vial first).
Warnings and Keywords: Angst, infidelity, wives and mistresses, off-camera rape, Pureblood society, Stockholm Syndrome, tormented ambiguous Lucius, stoically dignified Narcissa, character death, identification/sympathy with abuser, mention of cutting as a metaphor.
Thanks: To orlando_switch, who was a sounding board during The Blue Vial, and without whom this companion story would never have happened.

His other woman, whoever she was, was not a source of joy for him. She didn't know much else, but she knew that. It was etched into the slump of his shoulders as he sat morosely in his chair. It was outlined in the sloping lines of his back, silhouetted as he stared out the window of his bedchamber long after he thought she had gone to sleep. It was shadows beneath his ribs and deeper ones beneath his eyes.
