I really liked this one-shot :D It was so sweet.

I have not read a Bill/Fleur fic before and really enjoyed this little insight into their relationship. In such a short space you have depicted a lot about their relationship and how strong it is. I absolutely love this line 'It is just us; it could have been just us until the end of the world and I would have been happy.' Just so lovely :)

I really like the whole theme of this fic, and I loved the description at the start and this line at the end of the description- 'These things were neither good nor bad. They were simply mine, and I loved them for their good qualities and their imperfections alike.' Love that it shows that things to not have to be perfect to be lovable.

I really liked the part about Fleur making tea and the idea that pregnancy makes magic unpredictable - especially as it can make so many things unpredictable!

I loved the connection between the first and last sections, how they started with the same line but one describing what she loved about Shell Cottage and one describing what she loved about Bill. This was such a lovely touch and I found it rounded off the story perfectly.

It was a really enjoyable read. The descriptions and character interactions were great and well balanced. It flowed really well and was an easy read. All in all, I loved it!

Author's Response: I'm so happy you liked this! I never gave much thought to the Bill/Fleur thing before writing a one-shot about them over a year ago, but now they're one of my favorite canon pairings. I think they're both incredibly strong characters, and they really do love each other, in a very realistic way, which is something that's not done a lot -- and certainly not for the age group J.K. Rowling is writing for. I think it is so impressive that she's shown real, honest, actual love to people of that age, because they don't get it a lot. (Sorry for the rambling -- I have LOADS of opinions on books and writing, and more often than not, I probably shouldn't be encouraged to share them for fear of boring everyone in a ten-mile radius.)

When I write one-shots, I want people to get a sense of completion in the story despite it being only one chapter; that often means I use repetition like that to bring the story full circle. Thank you for complimenting it! ♥ And to comment on something else you touched on, love is NOT perfect, and going with what I said above, it's important for people to know as they grow up that when they fall in love, it won't be sunshine and roses forever. Real love and commitment takes effort on both halves of the relationship, and you have to work at it. But it can be done -- and is done everyday. There are countless examples of real love that have their ups and downs, but give me that any day over a fairy tale, sweep-me-off-my-feet love.

I'm very sorry for all the tangents I'm swinging into in this response to you! Truly, thank you so much for reviewing -- it's made me very happy, reading over this again and seeing you say such lovely things about a story I wrote. It means so much to me that people voluntarily read my stories, and I can't say that enough! ♥
