I am usually an avid Teddy/Victoire shipper, but in this story, I think I rather disliked Teddy and found myself really rooting for Victoire and Sam instead! I really liked the way you characterized Victoire in this piece! I loved her sense of adventure and her bravery, and I think it tied in really well with the theme of travel. It was interesting the way you gave her red hair instead of the typical blonde, and she seemed really unique to a lot of Victoires I've seen in fanfic.

Another thing that I loved was how she gave people nicknames, like Condescending Alexander and Silent Sam. There was someone similar to Condescending Alexander in one of my classes last year, so I can definitely sympathize with Victoire. Silent Sam was another great character. At first, I thought he would be the more quiet, bookish type of person (especially with the name 'Silent Sam'), but I love how he has a sense of humor. Canadians are so rarely seen in fanfic (in fact, this may even be my first time seeing one in the HP fandom), so that definitely added another interesting element to Sam's character.

All in all, this was a very enjoyable read, and I loved your version of Victoire and all the other characters in this, even including the giant! :)

Author's Response: Hi! :)

I'm glad you liked the story, and thought it was a different take on Teddy/Vic. It's great to hear you liked Sam, I thought he was pretty great too. :) It's wonderful that you liked Victoire and her wandering spirit, and that she came across as unique, that's just how I wanted to show her.

Haha, I'm glad you liked the nicknames, it's definitely a secret thing Victoire likes to do. And Alex was just awful, wasn't he! To be honest he's based on a couple people I've met traveling, so I'm glad he came across as relatable. Yes, I imagined Sam as having a more quiet presence and sense of humour, and I couldn't resist making him a Canadian! :)

Thank you for this lovely review, it was a pleasure to receive and read! :D
