I have never really gotten into reading Teddy and Victoire fanfics because they tend to be gushy and while there's nothing wrong with that, I do like to see a bit of a different take on characters (even if they're next generation characters) so I really enjoyed reading this fic. I thought that the way you portrayed Victoire's emotions was perfect. Through her, I could feel the loss that she felt for Teddy. I could feel her emptiness, her anger and her sorrow all at the same time. I've never been in a situation like the one that Victoire was in before but I could still relate because the way you portrayed her emotions was so strong.

As for Teddy, even though we only got to see him through Victoire's point of view, I didn't find myself hating him. I think that's what makes it so sad though. The fact that Teddy leaving was understandable. He didn't love her anymore and he wanted to move on and that's fine but so long as Victoire is willing to move on too. She clearly was not willing to move on, so the story become so much sadder. I expected to dislike Teddy and think that he was awful for leaving her but I didn't and I'm glad that I didn't because there's a sort of understanding that you can't force someone's emotions.

I felt really bad for Victoire though. When she turned to potions and alcohol to soothe her mind, I could really feel how emotional she was. It's not uncommon for people to drown their sorrows in alcohol and pain relievers just so that they don't feel the pain anymore but that didn't make the scene any less sadder.

Even though I have never been in a situation like Victoire's before, I could still relate to her. I think this is in part to do with how well you've characterized Victoire. In such a small amount of time, I felt like I knew her very well and I'm glad that I got that sense because it was important for me to be able to relate to her. I don't think I would have been able to get the right feel of the story if I didn't understand and relate to Victoire. On a personal level, that wasn't there, but on an emotional level, it was. I just wanted to hold her and comfort her and oh my, it made me so sad thinking about how she still isn't over Teddy.

I just wish she would let someone else know her pain. So many people like to keep their emotions bottled up but clearly it wasn't good for her. This was sad but so well written! Thanks for the read and great work!



Author's Response: Hey! Thank you for reading and reviewing!

I am glad you found this a good read! I am not a Teddy/Vic fan - I always like to see them broken up - so I enjoyed writing this ;) I am pleased you connected with Victoire though. And as for Teddy, yes he doesn't deserve hatred here - these things happen, people fall out love, it's not (entirely) his fault.
I am glad you could relate to Vic and felt sorry for her and that you wanted to comfort her. Thank you so much for the comments!
