Yay I get the fiftieth review :D

Thereís something really beautiful about this story, and I always think that when a new chapterís posted but Iíve never gotten around to saying it. I think itís the real depiction of peopleís lives in that time and the fact itís set in France, as stories in other countries are always fun to read. Itís just got something really lovely about it and that was my chance to fan girl over it :í)

That flashback was heart-breaking, and my heart really went out to Camille. Even though she was recruited later, it probably left scars on her. At first I was yelling insults and Xavier for leaving Camille for another girl, but when he justified it with saying it was to do with the resistance it made it slightly better. It still made me have tears in my eyes over what happened to her.

Ah I figured out why I love this story so much, I think itís all the little French things and how authentic it all is. I got far too excited about Astrid writing the date on the board and just saying Mardi 2 Novembre made it authentic, thatís what it is. I can see youíve really put thought into this story and itís such a joy to read.

I thought you really caught the range of emotions Astrid may have been feeling really well. There was the joy of teaching, which was really lovely to see that she could still enjoy things during the war, and then the sadness of being away from her home and family. I really liked the spontaneity she felt when strolling down the streets of Paris and it was lovely to see she could still be carefree in a time like this.

I like the encounter Astrid had with Maximilian SchrŲder. It was nice to see that some of the Nazis could still be humane and reasonable. Even though that is really rare, I think it was important to include to show an accurate reflection of the war and I really loved it. I have a feeling weíre going to bump into him later on.

Eep the Camille and Xavier scene ♥ I was hoping that we would learn more about their relationship but I wasnít expecting to hear more about it then same chapter, so yay for that! I liked how you showed that even though they were in love, they were still had their differences. I think it was the part about Camille not wanting to have children yet and Xavier being surprised about it. It showed that even though they dated they still didnít reveal everything.

The final scene was perfect ♥ the only thing Iím annoyed about is the massive cliff-hanger you left us on. Is Xavier alright? Are they going to get caught? Will Xavier and Camille ever be together again? All these questions which probably wonít be answered for a while. Good luck with your exams though Val, and Iím glad that thereís a chance of updates on this story :D Another amazing chapter!

Wow that turned into a massive review!

Author's Response: Fifty reviews already, I could almost shed a tear. Thank you for sticking to this since the beginning!

I know I shouldn't be picking favourites, but I think I've got a special soft spot for Camille. This scene was so difficult to write: I really ship her Xavier with every fibre of my body, and writing them apart makes me so sad. I totally join you in screaming at Xavier though -- the poor guy just couldn't come up with another excuse to leave, could he?

I knew you would pick up on the French! When I write this, the French comes really spontaneously and sometimes I switch to French without realising...

Ah, I'm so glad you liked Astrid. It's the first time I felt like I'd properly dealt with her character, so your compliments are even more appreciated! As for Maximilian, yes, we will indeed be bumping into him later.

So I'm going to go back on my tangent about Camille and Xavier , but you are completely correct about their relationship and I love you so much for understanding it. And for shipping them together, of course!

I felt so guilty about the final scene, I'm sorry... I swear I'll be posting a new chapter as soon as I can, which hopefully will answer a few of your questions.

Thank you so, so much for being this supportive ♥
