Hi! Emily here with your review!
First of all, I think your summary was great, I was excited to read this story before I'd even clicked the link!
I really adore a love triangle, and between two sisters who were evidently very good friends, even more. I think it's really very interesting and your use of description really brings out the intensity of Victoire, Teddy and Dom's emotions.
I loved the obvious change in Vic's emotions, from being overly loved up and as happy as expected for someone who was about to be married, to vicious rage and anger at being betrayed by two people who she cared about the most.
I don't think I've ever read a story of betrayal that was ever quite so vivid or that grabbed my attention this much.
I haven't read a huge amount of Fics about Victoire, because she is quite often portrayed as self-centered and extremely attractive(and she knows it) and Dom's worst enemy. However, I love your characterisation of Victoire, and Dom, and I think they are much more realistic and how I would imagine them. Also, the plot gives a much better reason as to why Victoire will start to hate Dom, which makes a change from Dom hating Victoire.
You ask whether it works as a stand-alone, which it definitely does - though I'm now intrigued to read the prequel :P - however, I don't think the prequel is necessary for this story, it has a very good introduction and I don't feel like I'm missing information or anything.
All in all I'm extremely interested as to what actions Vic will take, and am excited to be introduced(hopefully) to the rest of the Weasleys.
Keep it up! And feel free to re-request anytime :')
Author's Response: Hey! Thanks a ton for reading and leaving such a sweet review!
Ah, summaries are my weak points so I am glad you think the summary was good!
I love love-triangles too, and adore writing them but I am always concerned with the emotional intensity so its good to know that you liked it.
I was afraid that everything happened a tad too fast, so again a relief that liked the change in Vic's feelings, and didnt think it was too quick.
Oh Merlin, really? It flatters me so much when you say that you've never read such a vivid and attention grabbing story of betrayal.
Well, I do agree with that. I have read one too many fics about Vic being the "mean" one and Dom hating her and so on. But I do feel that its not very plausible since after all they're sisters. I tried to do best with Dom & Vic's characters as well as I could, so I am glad you liked it.
It's a big relief to know that it stands alone well. I would love to know what you think of the prequel though, since it is from Dom's POV and takes place before Betrayal.
Well, as of now, I haven't planned another sequel to this (though I do think a trilogy would be nice) but if I do, I'll try to incorporate Vic's further actions and maybe introduce the other Weasleys.
It's a very tired phrase, but really, your review totally made my day!
