Missing TDA and HPFF brought me back to your author's page--it's one of the only places I can see amazing banners AND read amazing stories. The title of this story is what got me, I confess. I love ABBA and I think you used 'Knowing me, knowing you" very well in this piece of writing. I've never thought of Teddy's character like this, and it's very interesting to do so. Kudos on making readers think outside the box with the Teddy/Vic pairing. This is such a refreshing story--usually I find Teddy/Victoire ships very cliche. Keep up the great work! I'd love to see you write another piece with another ABBA song--what about 'Our Last Summer" or "I have a dream"? Or...oh! What about "One of Us?" I noticed you have an ABBA theme going on in some of your stories, so perhaps one more might not be so out of the question?? /hopeful
Anyway, thank you for providing me with another great read. I check HPFF infrequently, but when I do usually you have a new story or chapter up so it's a real treat for me. You are an incredible writer and one of my greatest writing and graphic making role models, so thank you for everything. :)

Author's Response: Bea! It's great to hear from you! *blushes* Thank you so much for your lovely compliments on both my graphics and stories. ^_^

I'm glad to hear that the ABBA-inspired next-gen stories are working out so well! I'm still rather uncertain about this story, as it's so much drearier and more depressing than the others in this "series", but it's great that the song works with this story. It's harder to write an angsty ABBA-inspired story, as even their sadder songs are so upbeat. I usually go with whatever gives me inspiration at a given moment - a song and plot bunny mixing at the right moment. "One of Us" is definitely part of the "Winner Takes All" soundtrack, though. ;)

I said in a previous review response that I have issues with the popularity of the Teddoire pairing, especially with how it's usually portrayed as fairy-tale like, even moreso than Scorose, which at least has family tensions behind it. This story probably goes too far toward the other extreme, making their story too pessimistic, but it's good to hear that it's a refreshing look at the ship. :)
