Review:Eridanus says:
This was just so much more than brilliant. I'm in the process of a Dominique/Teddy/Victoire and I've been looking at a few others, but this is the best that I've come across. I loved your use of second person, it was perfect for the story and it really added to the mystery of the piece. Teddy's repetition of 'Dominique is dead' throughout the fic was very powerful, and to me at least it seemed as though he was trying to convince himself that it was true by saying it so often. I loved the power this fic gave me to interpret things any way I liked, the ambiguity of it all was to die for.

Victoire definitely seemed to be regretting what she did or at least wishing that she hadn't 'had' to. At first, as I'm sure it was intended, I thought that she was drinking because she missed her sister but it soon became clear that it was out because of the fear or guilt that she feels herself. The divine paragraph is amazing. I can just imagine her becoming slowly more unhinged as she speaks, It's wonderful. There really isn't much more I can say about this one-shot, apart from that it has me completely in awe and it's going straight to my favourites.

Author's Response: First, I have to high five you for writing your own Dom/Ted/Vic story - there seriously aren't enough of them, and I wish you the best of luck. Obviously, of course, I'm very, very flattered and humbled by this review. I'm relieved and ecstatic that you thought the second person fit, since it's not exactly a conventional choice (but then again, who cares about convention?). You're very, very close with that idea: Teddy knows that Dominique is dead; he didn't question it, but he suspected that something like this would happen. But of course, your interpretation is your own and I love seeing what everyone thinks about this piece.

Victoire didn't HAVE to do anything: she did it. She did not regret doing it - remember, she said that she's not sorry - but she is terrified of what she's done. In my view of things, Victoire was drinking not just to drown her own fear but also because that was the last thing Dominique had done - drink. This if where the divine speech came in, and I'm so happy you liked it; it's one of my favorites, too.

Honestly, this review is ridiculously humbling, and I can't thank you enough. But thank you so, so much.
