Review:Marzipan says:
Gina, this was awesome! I've never read a Vic/Scorpius - I've never even dreamed of such a thing. You have therefore rocked my world. People need to start writing more of this ship; I'm in love!

I love the way you've characterized all three here. Victorie is just wonderful; the dilemma she must have faced, having fallen out of love with Teddy yet still feeling obligated to him because of this mysterious illness, finding the same sort of passion she had with Teddy in Scorpius, then having to choose between the two. She's clearly such a strong person with a good heart, whatever mistakes she might have made in the past. This line just kills me:

She would never consider herself on a similar level to Mama or Grandmama, but she let him put her on a pedestal one last time.

Scorp, I see as a sort of spoiled player, whether you intended him to be or not. I find myself doubting whether he really loved Victorie or if it was all about him. Showing up at the cottage, a month after she had evidently chosen Teddy over Scorp just reeks of selfishness. If it was really about Vic he should have protested - fought for her - when she made her choice. Don't mosey over a month later to see if she's changed her mind. Men. Will admit to shouting at Vic responding with something harsh when he said he loved her before driving off. Vic was too lady-like to oblige.

I'd love to see you write more of this: what happened to Teddy? Do he and Vic manage to stick it out? Does he manage to stick it out? What other lives does Scorpius drive around destroying? I want to more about these people and their lives, and that is really the greatest accomplishment a writer can achieve, right? To write characters that your reader is truly invested in? You've certainly done it here, so kudos! xoxo

Author's Response: I've never ever heard of another Vic/Scor, so I haaad to totally write one. Older women/Younger men are quite rare in general though. Rose/Teddy gets so much love, on the flip side.

I've always wondered how those people who have to care for loved ones whose minds slipped away find the strength to do it. It's always been my own fear that something like that would happen to people I know so it was very interesting to write a character with that sort of heart.

That line's one of my favs as well :) I think most would sympathize with her situation and wouldn't blame her for her adultery, but it does prey on her mind. I could never be as strong as her, but I don't think she sees herself as very strong at all.

Scorpius, I pictured him as a bit of a romantic and spoiled, indeed. I think he did truly love Victoire, but I also think he's never had to make sacrifices and he is yet to fully grasp what love is. Victoire loved him back too in a way, but she won't ever be ever to fully see him as someone that isn't a replacement for Teddy.

Heheh, I love seeing my readers reactions and yours of Scorp is certainly one that will be sticking in my mind.

I have brief ideas of what happens surrounding this, but I think I also like the ambiguity of it all. Me and my happy endings say that Ted and Vic make the best of their lives and it is, indeed just "enough". I'm amused you say Scorpius goes around destroying lives 8D It certainly does seem so with the way I always portray him (I bet he goes through all the other Weasley women, that's what. There's too many; he won't ever run out!)

I'm so happy you like it and my characters really stuck with you. This review made my day :heart: THANK YOU~
