Review:Amie says:
This was beautiful. I loved the connection between Beauty and the Beast and them. This is different than most of the Teddy/Victoire stories. Obviously because it's not a happy ending, but also because Victoire is so much more... I don't want to say shallow, because she's not necessarily shallow, but she has a low self-image almost, the way she needs all of the beauty potions.

And then there's Teddy, who is much more introspective than other stories portray him. It's a nice change from the typical Auror that he usually ends up as.

It really is a story of love, even though it didn't last. And I have a feeling that before this moment, they did try, at least a little, to put things to the way they were before. They're broken people, but they just don't fit together and make a whole.

I love your poetic language. I've tried writing, and it just doesn't work for me. I think I'll stick to reading your stuff :)

Author's Response: This story really ventures away from what's often seen about Teddy and Victoire, not only because it ends badly for them, but also in their portrayals. I wanted to explore different ways of looking at them, without the rose-coloured lenses and fairytale perfections - they're just real people, as is seen, for instance, in Victoire's low self-esteem and her need for all of those beauty potions. They make me wonder whether she uses them to make herself look prettier in Teddy's eyes, not understanding that he doesn't need her to be beautiful - he just needs her.

Thank you so much for your compliments! Gosh, I don't know how else to respond except to thank you - it means a lot that you like what I did with this story and my style of writing. It's wonderful to read and re-read your reviews, and I wish you the best of luck in writing - don't give up! ^_^
