It's Rosie from the blue vs bronze review battle! :)
This was so well-written! I've honestly never read a Viktor/Fleur story before, so this was definitely very refreshing.
You did an amazing job with the accents. I try to avoid writing Fleur and Krum as much as I can, because those accents are very difficult to write. But you put BOTH of their accents in the same story! For that, I congratulate you! :D
I loved the concept of this one-shot, and how Krum finally got over Hermione but by reading I know that he still cares about her, just not in the same way.
I also find it interesting that in Viktor's mind he's actually very well-spoken, but when he actually speaks he isn't. But I'm glad you wrote it that way. It's realistic; nobody thinks in an accent. I actually ran across a Krum story once, and they wrote it so that it seemed Krum thought in accent, which was really, really weird.
Anyway, I really enjoyed this. Lots of fluff and a good amount of romance- just the way I like it. I really love your writing style, it has a wonderful flow to it. Keep on writing! And sorry if I rambled...
Author's Response: Thank you! Honestly, I've never read one either - this was a present for maskedmuggle on the forums because I found a post where she said she'd like to see one, so... I wrote one :D
The accents killed me, gosh! They were so annoying! I kept forgetting to include them, or skipping the odd word or so... thanks! (I'm never doing it again, though - ever!)
I knew when I wrote it that I was always going to have to at least mention Hermione, so I actually planned out how her and Viktor's relationship would have gone, kinda thing. You know, when she'd have stopped liking him, when he'd have stopped liking her, etc. Plus, I'm a huge canon fan, so I couldn't have Hermione pining after him or anything (and I'm a secret romantic, so I couldn't have him pining after her either!)
Oh gosh no, I could never do that! That would break my brain! O.o To be honest, we don't know how fluidly he speaks in Bulgarian, so he could be very well-spoken in his mother tongue, just not in English :P Who knows?
Thank you so much - this review was really lovely!
