Review:Secret Santa says:
Hey, it's your secret santa with part of your gift!

I really loved this one-shot! Ted/Andromeda is one of my favourite pairings, and you created a really unusual perspective on it this time! The fact that Ted was at first interested in Bellatrix was completely unexpected, but I loved it! And the fact that Andromeda caught him... win!

Ted's group of friends are really well characterised just in that brief snippet, and I especially love Doreen (probably because she's a tall girl, and we're completely under-represented :P). Her distaste for Bellatrix was brilliant as well-- I bet Ted's friends must have thought he was crazy for liking Andromeda, and I'm sure Bellatrix is even worse! Your Death-Eater characterisation was god as well, and I liked your allusions to the pureblood mania-- not over done, but still there, which was good.

Overall, I think your spelling and grammar was really good. I would put this on my favourites, but I don't want to ruin the surprise of who I am, so I'll put it off for a bit longer!

10/10

Author's Response: Hey there, Secret Santa! :)
I love Ted/Andromeda as well - there isn't nearly enough of it on the archives, in my opinion - and I wanted to do something different from the stuff I've read. A lot of it is either something really dark, or really light and Romeo/Juliet kinda thing, so I thought I'd try something lighter, but not quite so doomed-romance-y.
Oh, I had so much fun writing Ted's friends! Doreen is probably my favourite too, lol, although Crispin was quite fun. I've always wondered how Ted's friends would react to him dating Andromeda - we know hers would have hated it - but no one ever seemed to address it.
Ah, the Slytherins. They were fun to write. I always feel a bit naughty when typing 'mudblood', if I'm honest, lol, as though I'm doing something wrong.

What! Not even a clue? ;)
Thanks for the lovely review!
