Ely! This is a somewhat delayed review, and I must humbly apologize, but I am getting to it now and that's what truly matters. Right? (And before I forget -- thank you so much for the shout-out. It made me feel literally warm inside! ♥)
This fic has really, really made me want to read more about Teddy Lupin, and that's not something I can say about a lot of stories that I read, especially ones that feature next-generation characters. I love the way you've characterized him, and I feel it's probably very accurate to how someone would feel. I love the fact that Andromeda is still so focused on Remus and Tonks, and that Teddy is too -- it's a sad detail, but a very realistic and emotional one, and such a small thing really set the tone for your first chapter. I am duly impressed! :) There's such a family attitude here, what with Teddy caring for his grandmother, and going so often to see Harry and Ginny, that I just genuinely enjoy.
I'm really excited to see how you write the dinner between Teddy and his godparents, as well, because I've never seen you write Harry before! I'm really interested to see their take on the whole Teddy/Victoire pairing, as well, because in the books the only real perspective we ever get on that is Lily's. And the views of a ten-year-old girl don't necessarily match up with those of her parents. :P I hope you update really, really soon!
Great first chapter, Ely -- seriously! I'll be watching for when you post the next chapter, and as I've said, I hope it's soon, although I know you've got a lot of projects under your belt (which is so admirable -- I can't handle more than two!). And while I'm at it, once again, I adore your banner! Fantastic work, and I hope to see it popping back up before too long!
Author's Response: Rach! *blushes* I take slight reasoning for that right? I'm sorry, but it's fun to distract people even if it means waiting longer for lovely reviews such as this one! You are so amazing that I feel if I do not give you shout-outs then it's just not fair at all :3
I understand completely what you are saying, I'm not really a big Next Gen fan either so I'm so very glad you enjoyed this! You are making me blush so bad with all your kind words, I owe you so much!
I have never written Harry before, so I'm a little nervous that I'm going to mess it up but hopefully with the help of some lovely people, it'll turn out okay. *crosses fingers* One can hope, Right? I'll try and update as soon as I possibly can (Hopefully before I go away)
Your reviews always make my day Rach, honestly, and for you I will try and get my next chapter up very soon indeed! THANK YOU SO MUCH! *huggles*
