Review:TenthWeasley says:
Here for the review battle! I was just browsing the filled requests at TDA (which is something odd I like doing) and I recognized your banner, so I thought I might as well give the story a shot while I was here. :)

I can honestly say that I've never read the story with a premise like this, but speaking as someone who's only ever had a handful of dates and no proper boyfriend, I can somewhat empathize with the idea of a spinster! You're right, too, that there aren't very many stories centered around Victoire, and even fewer that don't have a Teddy Lupin element to them. That's not a bad thing, of course, but as someone who doesn't generally choose to read a lot of next gen in the first place, it's nice to have something more refreshing.

I liked the way you styled this first chapter, as sort of introduction to Victoire from the perspective of an omniscient narrator. I've read a lot of stories where the narrator speaks directly to the reader, and sometimes that's difficult to pull off, but I didn't see a problem with it here. :) She seems really spunky and lively, if perhaps a touch obnoxious -- but that's not a slight against your writing. You're working with an understandably obnoxious characterization!

That IQ line is brilliant, too -- I love Sherlock and that was a nice reference. It'll be neat to read more of her voice, too, as that'll really pave the way for her personality and your writing to shine! This was a fairly short introduction, but I don't think it needed to be any longer. And now your readers are all geared up to hear more from your characters!

I enjoyed this -- isn't it nice how things work out sometimes, my seeing this banner on TDA only an hour earlier? Always glad to leave a review!

Author's Response: I can't believe I'm responding to this so late but hello! I like to browse the completed requests as well, I have nothing to do sometimes so I go and look at the pretty stuff that everyone else makes.

The idea of ending up as a spinster is very closely related to me as well. I have yet to go on an actual date with someone. I think I scare away all of the males because I'm a blunt sort of person who's not a pushover. That and the fact that my personality isn't exactly top notch and I'm not the prettiest flower out there probably contributes to the fact that I will mostly live with lots of cats. But enough of my waffling.

I never knew how much fun it would be to write crabby characters who practically spit fire. I am proud to say that I am contributing to the Victoire Weasley stories where there's no Teddy.

I've always found stories where the narrator is speaking directly to the reader really fun to read. I wanted to try writing this way and it means a lot to me that I've managed to pull it off.

Anyway, I'm glad that you enjoyed the first chapter and thank you for the feedback and for reviewing!
