Review:Secret Santa says:
I don't know why you are unsure about your writing. Sure, until now, I have only read fluff and drama from you but how could ever think that you are bad at angst? If that was something out of your comfort zone, then I am jealous.

I am jealous of your writing for a host of reasons, haha, but how can you write so well when you are out of your comfort zone? This was the same Beeezie writing that I have become accustomed to in the last week or so and it was just as phenomenally good as your other stuff. So please take that uncertainty and insecureness out of your mind, okay? Repeat after me: I am a good writer and absolutely rock at everything I write. That's your homework. Say it three times every day and then maybe you will start to believe it!

It's nice to read something about friends just being friends. You don't often get that, unless it is a more filler type chapter in a longer story in fanfiction. But this was lovely. It was Teddy obsessing over Victoire (I'll get to that in a moment) and being teased by his friends. It made me smile. Because it was so familiar. I could easily see myself with my friends discussing the exact same things and all of us teasing one of our poor friends for being lovesick. It's so relatable. That is yet another thing that I am jealous of in your writing.

Now. Teddy himself. I have just read three stories of yours in a row about Teddy/Victiore and I'm kind of absolutely adoring the ship. And how you write it. Teddy is officially one of the most adorable people in the world. He is just such a teenage boy. He so obviously likes a girl and then obsesses over it and weighs up the pros and cons and he doesn't want things to go wrong and he doesn't want his friends to tease him and he is worrying and keeps getting distracted by the girl and and... *takes a breath* he is just so gosh darn cute. I know I've said it before, but it needs to be said again.

You make me fall in love with your characters. And I love it. I only wish I had gotten around to reading your stories earlier. I have seen you around the common room and never really thought about it and I am kicking myself. It's so bad that there are authors that will never get read by me and SS this year has taught me that there are phenomenally good writers out there (like you!) and I promise to read them all.

You, Beeezie, inspire me.

Author's Response: It's actually funny, because writing angst really is out of my comfort zone unless I'm actually feeling depressed, but I've struggled a lot with depression in my life. I think that's part of why I sometimes find it difficult, because having to deal with depression has given me a thick skin and a sense of humor, so I have a hard time putting myself in the shoes of somebody who's just moping or being morbid. If I really let myself lapse into that, I'd be stuck in it for weeks.

ANYWAY. My life story is probably boring to you.

I'm really glad I've converted you into a Teddy/Victoire shipper, at least where my Teddy/Victoire are concerned! Splitting them up is a bit of a pet peeve of mine (to the extent that I now refuse to read fics about Teddy with any of the other next-gens), and I know that a lot of people seem to find them boring, but aghhh I love writing them. (Was that even a coherent thought?)

♥ Thank you so much. This really makes me feel happy.
