Hello again! After I finished my pending reviews and got caught up on some of my own writing I was psyched to see an update to this story!

I liked all the little tidbits in this chapter about how things work differently in different ministries/countries and particularly the little note about apparition. I had never considered that those things might affect the process (though it certainly makes sense - and perhaps explains the difficulty in long-distance apparition)!

As for your question, was Victoire too harsh? I don't know. I can understand where she's coming from and I can definitely understand her need to "shut the door" given the lengths Teddy has gone to.

At the same time, despite how Teddy's words sounded, I do feel for the guy. Victoire seems to have this viscerally negative reaction to the concerns and fears he had, which in mind are totally legitimate. Part of me feels like Teddy kind of did himself in by being honest enough to admit them, instead of pretending (so as not to sound creepy) that the fears don't exist. Victoire takes (in my mind) a very uncompromising approach about it - almost demanding respect for an important part of herself while refusing to respect a fundamental part of Teddy, despite a pre-existing long-term relationship. But hey, maybe I'm just being a guy, taking the guy's side. ..shrug.

Anyway, I thought regardless that you handled that aspect of the chapter well and I'm looking forward to seeing how this story keeps evolving!

Author's Response: Hello! :) I'm so happy to see you back!

I'm really pleased you liked those explanations as I find them so interesting. The wizards have everything so easy, and I can't resist making things like Apparition a little more difficult for them.

I really liked reading your reactions to the conversation with Teddy! I was hoping readers might be a little conflicted and be able to see both sides - yes, Teddy is annoying her, but Victoire isn't giving him much of a chance. I agree, she's not trying to accept him for who she is - I imagined her as being just very over the situation and not wanting to deal with the problems, while he's clinging on to what they had. I didn't even mean to spend this much time on their relationship, but once he decided to show up in Prague it was hard to avoid. :P

Thanks so much for following this story and for the brilliant review. I'm quite excited about the next chapter and hope to post it soon! :)
