Review:Elphaba and Boyfriends says:
Hi Elphaba here with your requested review.

When I think "parody" I think of a story that mimics the style of another story or genre in a way that humorously pokes fun at the original.

There are many very funny moments in your story, so you definitely succeed in the humor department. This line made me laugh: "She was French enough to drink wine with deep fried food and English enough to eat deep fried food with wine."

The nipple rings also made me laugh. I had been expecting Victoire to have played a trick on him, but the third nipple ring was much better. :)

The story flows well, and you make good use of some common fanfic stereotypes of Teddy and Victoire like the overwrought description of Victoire and her possession of random abilities like the Heimlich maneuver.

Rather than categorizing this story as a drama, I would call it a romance. I would expect a drama parody to be over-the-top melodramatic, whereas your story seems to focus more on skewering romantic fics. In particular, I find a lot of humor in the descriptions of how hot Teddy is, the silly scenario that gets them into bed, and the focus on how they are destined to make pretty babies.

I think it works well overall as a romantic parody, and enjoyed it as a light, fluffy read. :)

Author's Response: Hi Elphaba :)
You write really nice reviews. I'm glad you got my digs at common stereotypes and plot lines. I'm also happy that you enjoyed the theme and had a good laugh :)
I guess it does have a great bit of that romantic element in it. But as long as it works well (?), I don't think it's an issue. I enjoy a dash of romance, myself.
The nipple ring idea just came to me while I was writing it, and I felt kinda pleased. It's nice that all these little things that I've added here and there have been appreciated so well :) Thanks a lot!
Glad you enjoyed it!
