My first reaction was "awww, isn't that sweet!", and it is a sweet romantic story, but there's something more to it than that. The way that you portray the seasons adds another dimension to the story - they're very symbolic. She can only accept him in the spring, a time of rebirth and blooming. It ties back to your use of "blooming" to describe Roxanne's grin. She's like a flower, especially in the winter when she's muffled and seeking warmth, and only in the spring is she ready to take on that new life. It's brilliant.

It's interesting that you choose Roxanne, as it could be any girl in this, and any boy for that matter. Not that it's a criticism at all, just an observation. I can't see anything to criticise at all, though that doesn't surprise me, coming from you. This makes me want to read more of your work, and hopefully I'll be able to dive into something. :D

This was excellent, and a great entry for the challenge!

Author's Response: Gah, thank you so much! Every review from you just makes me want to melt, I swear. :)

The seasons! I was wondering if anyone would catch that! Honestly, I didn't plan it that way. It just so happened that I started in fall and ended in spring, and I think it worked quite well. Anyway, thanks so much for commenting on that. I was starting to wonder if it was all in my head of not. :D

Roxanne! I have never, ever thought of Roxanne as someone who would go well with Teddy (and, no, I don't say his name ONCE in this entire thing :P), but this was originally for the Ship Exchange challenge over on the Seeker. I ended up liking it more than I thought I would and posting it on my own account instead of the Seeker's. Anyway, that's why it's Teddy/Roxanne. I think if I hadn't gotten that pairing, I would have gone with something more along the lines of Teddy/Dominique or Teddy/Victoire. Either way, I'm glad you like her!

Again, thank you for the lovely review. It really does warm the heart.
