Very cute! I just love Teddy and Victoire. Great job as usual! :D :D :D
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it. ~Carole~
That was cute =) I liked it, never read one about them
Author's Response: Thank you. It's not my usual pairing, if I'm honest, but I like Next Gen and snarky Teddy. ~Carole~
I'm so glad you mentioned this was for the Puff drabble thing... I thought I was having deja vu or something. ;) I liked the drabble a lot, Carole, but this expanded version is just wonderful. I love all the magic... the gnomes and Teddy's antics at the table.
It was consistently funny but I was seriously pulling for them as well. Yes, Teddy was rude, but it was believable. People do rude things when they are hurt and angry.
Lovely one-shot. Probably the first that has made me want to read more T/V (though I do like the pairing).
One small crit... at the end there is a line about McGlaggan... "More fool him." I didn't understand this. Did you mean "more to fool him"? Again, this was such a small thing, and it is probably some cool Brit speak that just confused my American ears. ;) Hehe.
Lovely, lovely read.
Author's Response: Hi Lori. Thanks for the review. 'More fool him.' must be a Brit expression. It means that McLaggan is more of a fool because of certain actions/words so he's more of a fool. I think it's a Shakespearianism that's made its way into the common language, but don't quote me on that. I liked Teddy being rude because a) he is hurt and b) I get sick of reading stories where he's all gentle and even-tempered because I doubt Andromeda was placid and Tonks certainly wasn't (although she was sweet she was tempestuous). Thanks again ~Carole~
Since it's Christmas morning, I was looking for a quick (completed) Christmas story. Fortunately, your story popped up. Poor Teddy--unfortunate enough to dance with a witch wearing low-cut robes:D Then he had to listen to Fleur laugh politely just because she never really got British humor (I'm with her) and Percy laugh because something might be a joke. Transforming himself before leaving the dinner table was kind of rude but it was effective. I kept seeing the obnoxious Cormac from HBP. This was a great read for Christmas morning.
Author's Response: I like Cormac - he's so obnoxious that it's great fun to write him or his relations in the same mould - hee hee. Anyway, thank you for reading and reviewing. I agree Teddy was rude, but Victiore wasn't being kind, and I'm sure Molly would forgive him. ~Carole~
