After reading your first two chapters, I felt like I had to keep following this story because of how well you write - the places, the characters, the story - I'm not normally one for such effusive praise, but I think it's great.

For me, one of the most powerful segments was the bit about Teddy. I was pretty skeptical about how quickly she had moved on in the last chapter, but you shut me up here. A big part of my job and one of my hobbies (aside from writing) is crafting language that creates a powerful image. In terms of that I don't think it gets much better than "...he was brilliant, but he would hold her back, keep her smiling from within a cage built with metal wrought from a place of love." AMAZING.

I also thought you did a spectacular job with the ghost scene. The thought and effort you put into the back-story for this setting was exceptional and it played out perfectly in this simultaneously enjoyable, but painful scene.

You also just keep on with the impressive characterization of Victoire as this imperfect, but independent and intellectual wanderer. It's truly special.

This is one of few Next-Gen stories I've ever read, but I think your writing and unique plot has made this a favorite for sure.

Author's Response: Hello! :)

I'm so glad you like this! I'm really honoured. This story is very fun to write, and knowing that somebody is enjoying it is very encouraging.

I'm pleased you liked the explanation about Teddy as well. In my mind, Victoire is so preoccupied with traveling and having fun that she's left a lot of her old life behind, emotionally... and Teddy is part of that. I'm really glad you liked the metaphor as well, and how it explained the situation. Thank you! :D

The ghost scene was tough to write, but I felt it was an important lesson for Victoire to learn. She is very interested in the past, and this story puts her in the position to learn about the past - both the positives and negatives.

It's great to know you like Victoire as well. She's a great character to write, and quite quirky but also relatable for me.

Thank you so much! :) I've loved getting your reviews on this, and it really is encouraging me to get writing on the next chapter. I really appreciate this! :D
