I loved reading this chapter - getting to see the contrast between teenager Fleur and adult, married Fleur.

I think you write Fleur exceptionally well. Not that I have much to compare it to but I really like getting this "insider" view of her character. I love how concerned she is about appearing perfect - the poised look she forced herself into, her checklist of her accessories for the ball - but with Roger at the end, she lets loose a bit and just feels. I love how she knows she's beautiful - it's hard not to acknowledge the Veela in her but I don't find her conceited like those gossiping girls seem to say. She just doesn't come across that way in this story, at least. Though I did find it a bit amusing when she asked Roger to the dance and then said for a human boy - he would do. It kind of seemed like Roger was more of an after-thought, you know? Which he obviously isn't as evidenced by her concern about how he will act around her at brunch. It was interesting.

I also found it interesting how Fleur loves her silence and being alone (except currently where she's overwhelmed by memories) but she's married into such a large family that seems so boisterous, loud and overbearing. Just an observation. :)

Great chapter! Can't wait to read the ending.

Author's Response: I'm really happy to see that I did Fleur justice. I wanted to give her character some depth, as she was treated fairly lightly in canon and I think there's more under the surface there. You're right that she's not totally conceited but not totally willing to lower herself to be like the others around her, either. As you can see, she feels a lot of contradictory things, and her dilemma about Roger's visit is no exception.

Yes, poor Fleur does like her alone time, and it must be tough being a Weasley if you do :)

Glad you liked it :) Thanks for the review!
