I loved this! I'm usually not a HUGE fan of Teddy/Victoire because they seem to get played out in the same exact way every single time, but this had a freshness to it. They have personalities similar to what we would imagine (and what most writers do give them) but it wasn't shoved down my throat, which I love. You didn't have to have a paragraph explaining how shy yet caring Victoire is or how romantic but frightened Teddy is, we were just able to gather that, which is great in a story. I like seeing the characters in action and acting on their actual traits instead of having to be told about them.

The imagery was great. I got goosebumps during the graveyard scene! I'm an obsessive Harry Potter fan and while I knew what had happened to both of them, I never put together how Teddy and Victoire both had fathers who were victims of a werewolf. I also loved that he wasn't afraid to cry in front of her.

The flow of this story was great. You wrote just the perfect amount for each age. I really like how you started out with them meeting on the train when she was 11. Most next gen stories don't go into detail about how they met, and I'm also guilty of just assuming they'd known each other since they were babies because of the closeness of all the families. I never took into consideration that they actually never met until Hogwarts which is beyond endearing for some reason.

I thought this was a very sweet one-shot and refreshing to read such a different Teddy/Victoire than the rest. Great job and I hope this was helpful!

Author's Response: Hi there! Thanks for reviewing so quickly! :)

I'm so happy that you liked this even without being hugely into T/V, and I'm also pleased that you felt that I effectively "showed" rather than "told" about their characters. It's a serious pet peeve of mine when people just tell me everything and then "really" start the story, and I'm happy that you think so too!

I'm glad that you liked the graveyard scene, as it was the bunny that sparked this fic, and I'm pleased that you liked how I had their characters "meet". I thought little eleven-year-old Victoire was pretty adorable :)

Thanks again for such a kind review! I had kind of a rough, stressful day, and coming home to such a thoughtful review was really nice. I definitely appreciate your comments!
