Hello there!

You know, even though I don't usually read Next Gen, I still hear things about the cliches of this time period and I was very glad that you had not gone for the more typical version of the Dominque/Teddy/Victoire love triangle.

I really liked how you wrote this piece because it was easy to sense that the friendship, the relationship, between Dominque and Teddy had grown and deepened over the past few years. It wasn't under the shadows of Victoire and her relationship with Teddy. Instead, it was something of its own and the feelings they have for each other seemed more real because of this. Victoire won't have much to complain about because not only was she the one to break up with Teddy but it's been several years since they were a couple.

Their relationship seemed very cute and fun. It was very interesting to learn that Teddy liked to take Dominique on "surprises" all the time and I liked how he continued with the tradition to ask a very important question. My one (silly) concern is this: if Dominique had not returned his affections, the Portkey back home would have been very awkward, because that would have been their only way back home. They would not have been able to avoid each other immediately after the problem arose in his declaration of his affections. But luckily that didn't turn out to be a problem. :)

In fact, I liked how you made it clearer that this wouldn't be a problem with your hints of both of their feelings before the big revelation. They definitely helped in making the end of the story more enjoyable and more believable.

All in all, this was a cute one-shot. It's kind of funny that Dominique would be okay with him just watching her as she read - I would have found that awkward myself. :P Good work! :D

Author's Response: Hey! Thanks for reading and reviewing.

I am glad that you found my Dom/Teddy away from cliche.

I am pleased you could feel the relationship between Dom/Teddy. Yes, Vic can't have much to complain =)

Its good to know that you liked the little things in the story like Teddy continuing with the surprise tradition to ask her out. It was a cute thing in my mind so glad it paid off =) Haha yes the portkey back home would have been awkward though in my defines I think Teddy kind of sensed that Dom had feelings for him and then made his move xP

I wanted to show that they both felt the same before they moved on to the big step, haha. Glad it helped it make believable and enjoyable for you.

Haha my boyfriend loves watching me read and somehow I don't mind so I put that bit of me in Dominique too. Glad you liked this, thank you!
