Hmm, I have no clue about what is wrong with Victoire. It sounds like she might be ill in some way, though she's definitely not pregnant by the looks of things. Hopefully she isn't especially sick herself, that's the last thing she needs with all the excitement in her life. I really hope that Gwyneth will wake up, and I'm secretly hoping that Victoire or Van will adopt her! They do seem to have formed a bond, and Gwyneth definitely can't go back to her family even if they did show up - I'd be so angry if she did, but also I feel that Victoire and the WCPS wouldn't let that happen.
I love the idea of the WCPS, by the way! At first I was a little confused about what they were arguing about since they seemed to agree on Gwyneth not going back to her family, but the snottiness of the WCPS woman was definitely grating on Victoire. I was quite curious about the special hospital they had as well, and if it was established in recent years, and why they thought Gwyneth would get better treatment there. Either way, they really should be focusing on getting her to wake up at all, not squabbling over where she should live next! :P
Victoire is as great and relatable as always, I especially liked when her stomach was growling, and how grouchy she was when her family wasn't ready to greet her. You do a great job of making her seem very human, with her mood swings and occasional self-doubt, and even her having a messy office. :) And Emmaline was quite funny here, I liked seeing her five-year-old antics.
I'm so excited to see what happens next - both with Gwyneth, and of course the move to Paris! :D Wonderfully written, as usual! :)
Author's Response: A little spoiler about the sickness thing (because I'm worried about it myself) I might edit it out. I had an idea about it in the beginning, but I can't decide if I like it or not being in the story, so I may have to make a point across the story that I'll edit it out (if I come to that decision). I just feel so concerned and not at all sure of where I'm going with that plot, so we'll see about that. Hope that eases your mind a bit! If not, sorry!
Anyway, you have some spot on theories in this review! ;)
I was quite proud of coming up with the WCPS (even though all I had to do was slap a "W" on it and call it good xD). So I'm glad you liked that, but as for the confusion, you're right about the snottiness. For the hospital, you'll have to see about the recent bit, but I'm more so getting to a children's hospital where the program will be able to afford her hospice more (simply for the fact that her parents may or may not have to be responsible for this bill). As for the better well-being, that's what everyone says about their hospital, yeah? ;)
Yay for Victoire being so relatable! Especially since she's so moody sometimes, yeah? ;)
I promise to get on that chapter as soon as I can! I'll even message you to let you know when I've gotten to it!
Thank you so so so much for your time and patience with each wonderful review you've given me for each chapter you've gone through and read. I admire you so much, so I just love the fact that I get to answer a few of your questions of my story here! Thank you, as always, and I hope to see you for my return!
