You really are a fantastic writer!

So, maybe I'm just burnt out from exams, but there are some parts of this story I didn't get.
1. When Teddy left to take his tour of the world, did vic and him break up? Or did they just take a break?
2. Does Teddy not like Victoire that way anymore? And what makes him like Iska so much that he would choose her over Victoire? He still seems to care about V, so why?
3. Why did Teddy stop writing to V while he was on his tour? I don't know if you did this on purpose, but will we ever find out more about what happened when he was away?
4. Also, will we ever get a full flashback of when Victoire "ran away" for those few days?
5. How evil is Iska really?

I really like this story and I look forward to reading what comes out next. I was especially touched by that bit about Victoire following Teddy to Bimas because she didn't know what else to do and because she wanted to be on the same level as him. This hits home for me because one of the main reasons I chose to go to the uni I attend is because of someone I followed here as well. I've known this person for most of my life. They're about to leave now to travel the world for a few years, which is rather Teddy-like. I love how you manage to get those emotions across! Confession: those lines made me cry.

I don't know if that makes much sense, but I'm basically saying that you're a brilliant writer and I can't wait to see what happens next. In the mean time, I will read this story several times over.


Author's Response: Hi Darly!

Thanks so much for the review. I'm sorry I've been slow in responding.

1. They were together when he left, he saw her off at the Platform and they wrote letters back and forth, at first. His last letter mentioned taking a 'break' until he was back and she had graduated. At some point that break evolved into a 'break-up'. That part's a little hazy for Vic.

2. Ah, the big question -- how DOES Teddy like Vic? It might take a novel to answer that, lucky I have one going :-) I can tell you the gillywater ain't helping.

3. A little insight on the time away - especially the catalyst for the 'take a break owl' - will be coming up. The story is starting to come together now, and I hope sufficiently enough to tie in all the missing information.

4. That's a lot of backstory to write in. I played with a flashback a little but decided it stalled the story too much. There will be reflection later on which will fill in some more.

5. Cant say :0 You'll have to decide.

I can't tell you how amazing it is to hear that you were touched by Victoire's emotions. Coming from someone with a similar real life experience, that means SO MUCH.

I'm so glad you took the time to review. You made my month! Smiling big now. Next chapter is in the queue (part of what took me so long to respond).

Take care!
