Review #1, by secret cupid Stars and Galaxies

15th February 2016:
Oh this is so heartbreaking but in the most wonderful way!

I love tedromeda and I think you write them so wonderfully! The use of second person in this fic is really strong. The first time I read it through I wasn't sure who the you was in the second part because I was like, wait, ted died... But then you reveal that they're reunited after death and it was so perfect!

I feel like I don't see a lot of fics that write andromeda after ted and Remus and Dora die so I really appreciated that you focused on that part of her life. And of course, your writing was superb and flowed well!

Author's Response: Again, Ted/Andromeda ♥

I honestly love the two of them as a couple, but I have a terrible affliction in not being able to write happy couple-y stories without some form of heartbreak in there (or usually a lot), so this was my attempt at finding a halfway between the two. I'm glad that it worked, though!

Second person is probably my favourite narrative voice, particularly for stories like this one, and I'm really pleased that it worked and made sense to you once you reached the end :)

Thank you so much for leaving me these lovely reviews - you were a great Secret Cupid! ♥

Review #2, by wolfgirl17 Stars and Galaxies

1st December 2015:
Hello my dear Sian!

I noticed that this one-shot was a little low on love, so I thought I'd plaster it with my affection with my review for you on this fine evening.

This fic had such a bittersweet feeling to it. you made me all teary *sniffles* I think with this one you really captured the essence of what it is to love someone all your life. I've not read a Ted/Andromeda fic before and I'm so pleased this one was my first. It's so fluffy and wonderful yet so sad that it's just everything.

I adored the way you played on Andromeda's name and that to Ted she was his whole Universe. Love like that is hard to come by and it's nice to read about. This story is so sweet and such a delight. I don't know if I'll ever enjoy another Ted/Andromeda fic as much with this one being my first.

Keep up the positively fantastic work, lovely, and thank you for all the marvellous contributions you make to the archives. You're a gem.


Author's Response: Hi, Ellie!

Thank you for choosing this one-shot! I actually really enjoyed writing this one, but for some reason it doesn't seem to be very appealing to people who visit my page, so I'm glad that you wanted to read it at least!

Ted/Andromeda is fast becoming one of my favourite ships. I think they work so well together and even though it ends quite sadly, there's something really hopeful about them, too; like you said, it's bittersweet.

I'm really glad you liked the imagery taken from Andromeda's name, too - I kind of feel like I had to use it, because it was too apt for me not too.

I'm so glad that you enjoyed this little story and thank you so much for your wonderful review!

Review #3, by patronus_charm Stars and Galaxies

25th August 2014:
Okay, I am armed with a cup of tea and I can’t wait to read this! ♥ Thank you so much for writing this for me, it means so much and yeah, you are wonderful! :D

Ooh second person POV, it really worked so well here and you know how much I love it, I probably love it a little too much if I’m honest so thank you so much for that!

Okay, but seriously are you trying to break my heart? Just in the first few lines I was stabbed in it and had my feels crushed so much with this line ‘When you were dying, you thought of her.’ and this ‘Dora was expecting.’ I really loved how you wrote those two ships as their my favourites, and you wrote them so well. Ted’s emotions were so raw and pure and I really could sense his love for them, and how he just kept on clinging on and on but he couldn’t and the feels, the feels, I don’t think I’ll ever recover. :(

‘You aren’t just a star, ‘Dromeda,’ you told her, taking her hands in your own. ‘You’re a whole galaxy.’ *breaks down in tears forever and ever*

But wah their conversation, it was so them and so perfect and I loved it. ♥ Their sentences were so stilted and so poignant it seemed as if both of them knew what was about to happen but were holding themselves in, and it was just written so well. The way you ended it on I love you was perfect because I think those two will always love each forever and ever.

The theme of stars and galaxies and the infinite was really fantastic and fitted in with Andromeda’s name and their story was really great. The description and imagery with it was so beautiful too and just showed their love so well.

Whoo, Andromeda time! I didn’t expect that but I loved it so much. I really loved how you started with the same line though as it just shows how interlinked they are and perfect and though I keep on saying this, you just wrote them so well so thank you for that! ♥ The little mentions of Teddy were perfect and admittedly made me tear up a bit as I love the idea of him helping his grandmother through and he probably did that for a lot of other people too.

I have no words for the brief flashback of when she said she was leaving home, it was too sweet and moving and wonderful!

The ending, the ending, the ending! ♥ ♥ ♥ It made me want to cry so much as it was so poignant and had this weird solemn air but there was happiness there too and just so many different emotions it was really amazing. The closing line ‘The two of you were together, and the universe was yours again.’ If I could do :wub: I would as it just completed the story so well and really tied up their tale.

Thank you so much for writing this for me, it was amazing and I loved every bit of it! ♥


Author's Response: Kiana! ♥

How could I not write something for you, really? You're the first person I ever properly spoke to on here and you're amazing!

Yay for second person!

Okay, you know that I can't really write fluff very well so I was trying to write something that was kind of romantic and oops it turned out a lot more angsty and sad than I intended... so I'm not *trying* to break your feels, but sorry if I did!

I'm really glad that you liked the way that I wrote Andromeda and Ted together because it was kind of scary, knowing how much you love them and since you've written a great version of them yourself too! The speech was meant to seem stilted and a bit awkward but I'm glad you thought it worked!

I thought the theme of stars and galaxies fit so well with Andromeda's name and I'm glad you liked it, plus it meant I could get some fluffy lines in the story :P

Yay, Andromeda! I didn't expect to write about her either at the very beginning, but she just decided she wanted to pop up and I'm happy you liked her side of it though and Teddy helping her through her grief as well.

The ending! ♥ It was only brief but I'm SO happy that you liked that part as it was kind of my attempt to make things a bit happier and having them together again as they should be.

Thank you so much for this brilliant review, and I'm really happy you enjoyed it! ♥
