Review:Violet Gryfindor says:
Oh you are unfair! I don't like Teddy/Victoire normally, but this is so cute and touching that it tempts meto like that ship. You make them so perfect for each other, through thick and thin. I love how you make Victoire like her mother in that way, remaining furiously loyal and loving even when she learns that he is "marked" by lycanthropy. Even though Teddy isn't physically marked as Bill was, that parallel is still very meaningful and adds depth to your characterization of Victoire.

The structure of this is fantastic - so simple, but that's what makes it moving for me I can hear that child-like voice at the beginning change to the woman at the end - your language and imagery mature throughout this story, and that would be something too many authors would forget to take into account (I certainly would!).

There are a great many wonderful little details you included that I could also discuss, but I'll just say in conclusion that this one-shot was beautifully written - it's an album of snapshots of Victoire's life, artfully arranged - and it made me tear up to read. Fluff doesn't get me this way, so I don't know whether to thank you or not. I'll go with yes. ;) Excellent work!

Author's Response: Susan! :)

Oh, I'm so glad you liked it :) I am usually very annoyed by Next-Gen, seeing as it tends to be very cliche-filled, but I got a little bunny for the graveyard scene and just had to write this. I really wanted to draw in elements of the Bill/Fleur and Remus/Tonks werewolf conflict and I'm so glad that worked for you. I also wanted to change the typical characterization of Victoire that I've seen; here she is a little more careful and unsure, whereas typically I find her portrayed as vivacious and wild compared to her sister.

It is quite simple, and I'm happy to see that the effect came across well. I'm honestly not sure if I did the shifting maturity on purpose. I'd like to think I did, but regardless, I'm pleased that you were impressed by it :)

Oh, dear, my fluff made you tear up! Well, I'll take that as a compliment. I'm so, so happy that you liked it. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing! :)
