Amanda! I'm not going to lie, I think this might be my favorite story that you've written so far. There's something quiet and beautiful in the way this story is told. I love how Victoire ages throughout the story - how you start each section with her age. I think it's a clever way to pass the time and allow us to see how her thoughts and actions mirror that maturity.

Our first introduction of Teddy is sweet. That smile that kind of freezes Victoire in her place - and it isn't just that first time either, but throughout their friendship and their relationship, it seems she is kind of taken aback whenever he smiles at her. It's precious.

I think the personality you've given Victoire in this - a studious, quiet Ravenclaw is something I haven't seen before. I feel like I've usually seen her portrayed as more outgoing and popular. But I like this characterization. I think she meshes very well with the Teddy that you've written. And their first kiss! I love first kisses. :)

I like how the next section fits in with what canon we do know. It's a definite change in Victoire's personality, to kiss him back - but I'm happy he brings that out in her. And oh my gosh, their 'I love you's' are so sweet! And that last name about feeling victorious - I loved that because of her name, obviously.

I think the next part is my absolute favorite. That Teddy thinks of his father's affliction as a sin and wondering if it will affect him. Then Victoire still standing by his side, still loyal to him, reminiscent of her mother when Bill was attacked by Greyback. Very nice touch.

When Teddy proposed and Victoire felt like a princess - I kind of squee'd a bit. I am always happy when a woman feels so loved and cherished and the way you've written the two of them, have me totally shipping this pair (but don't tell anyone else I said that...)

I love how Victoire sees them at the end, untainted and perfect. I know that was Teddy's biggest concern and Victoire has such a big heart and an unbending loyalty, that she makes the perfect match for him - to help soothe his worries and realize how loved he is.

THIS IS SUCH A CUTE STORY and like I said, it's definitely my favorite of yours so far. You're definitely doing a wonderful job experimenting with writing the fluff. Nicely done!

Author's Response: OhohOH! MISSY! This is so sweet :)

Oh, I'm so glad you liked it. I really am not sure where the idea to split the thing by age came from. It was one of those stories that just wouldn't stop when it started, like a dam broke in my head and poured the words out.

They are sweet, aren't they? I, too, agree that I usually see Victoire written as boisterous and outgoing and I wanted to do something different with her here. I wasn't sure if I saw a son of Remus being interested in a girl who was the life of every party (not that Tonks was quiet or anything, haha).

I tried to write a good mix of fluff and angst here. The graveyard scene was actually the bunny that launched the whole thing. I loved the commonality they had with werewolves and I wanted to construct a plot around that.

Oh, go ahead, ship them. I can no longer claim to hate Next-Gen either, I suppose ;)

Thank you so much for such a kind review!

Amanda
