Oh dear, I loved this. Most definitely adding to favorites. By the way, you're right, the banner is lovely.

I loved your description. It was quite poignant without being overwhelming as description sometimes it. You provided just the right amount of energy and imagery to make me feel like I was at the beach with Victoire without making it boring. Nicely done. I liked the intended or unintended symbolism of the beach. It's just vast and never-ending and alone and I feel like that's how Victoire feels in the beginning. But then she finds Teddy (adorable!) and his ability to change helps her feel like she's not so alone and she doesn't have to change the expectations and weights on her shoulders without help.

I also loved how the title connected with your theme of Victoire not living up to her name. In her own eyes, she hasn't been victorious, but I give her props for being the first Weasley grandchild fresh out of the war. She held it together. She was strong. And she would still be Victoire even if she wasn't called that.

Fantastic story!
Happy writing,

Author's Response: Hey CB! Sorry for the late reply on this!!!

Thank you so much for your compliments and nice words! I'm really pleased it wasn't an overwhelming amount of details as I have a weird love affair it seems with putting in too much description. It's a good setting for this sort of story isn't it? The idea that the beach, the ocean is just so big, so never ending just shows how Victoire feels like her problems are just as vast and big and she so small that she can't overcome them. Teddy helps, but in the end, our happiness has to come from within and not from someone else. :P

If i were to write more of this it would show her falling more apart but also finding strength. This is just a little taste of what she goes through and how her name made her feel even more insignificant. Thank you so much for your lovely review! I really appreciated it!
