Hello there! I saw the link to your story on the forums and decided to come and read and review :)

So I really enjoyed the idea of exploring the concept of naming and its significance and its symbolism and everything. I think you've really drawn out Victoire's conflict very well, of the tremendous weight she must be feeling, attached to her name. And she wasn't even alive when the whole war happened.

I think you've got an eye for detail; there were some very lovely descriptions, which brought both the character and the scene to life in my head e.g. the heat, the sea, the way her skin blisters, the way Teddy rolls his shoulders...these were all such lovely descriptions, and there's something quite delicate about your writing.

I love the moment when Teddy appears, how they stand next to each other and there is minimal dialogue between them, as though they are completely comfortable with each other's presences. It's such a warm moment, full of hope, which was quite a nice change from the despair Victoire was feeling at the beginning of the story. And Teddy, rolling a lock of her hair between his fingers - gah, that was just too wonderful :D I love the moment of hope this fic ends on!

Well, I've really enjoyed this story, I'm glad I clicked the link and came to read! I'm usually not too big a fan of next gen, or even of common ships like Teddy/Victoire, but this was a really beautifully written piece. It would be great if you choose to develop this further and explore the arc of their relationship in a short story, or something longer!

Lovely writing :)

Author's Response: Hey!! Thank you so much for your lovely review on this! and it was my first one!!

I'm really pleased you enjoyed one of the things that i was exploring here. It wasn't even intentional at first but as I was writing and trying to feel what Victoire was i realized that she might have been just as damaged as the war victims simply because of her name, when she was born, and the pressures that she might have faced. It's not something i think a lot of people explore with her so it was great to just explore something new.

Next-Gen and major pairings aren't my favourite either. I like minor characters and that is typically what i write. It was a surprise to me as well when I had a muse to write something about them.

I'm really pleased that you liked this story! Thank you so much for your absolutely wonderful review! It made my day for sure!
