Chapter: Chapter 2 - Methode Champenoise

I can sense that relationship going downhill quickly. Dominique might have thought she liked being bullied but once she was handled more gently she decided she liked that more.

Chapter: Chapter 1 -Le Vin du Diable

I got the understanding that Myles and Dominique didn't feel that close to each other. I was surprised that Dominique kissed Mags first. I can see where D would be attracted to a woman since her relationship with Myles seems so dismal.

Author's Response: Mags has overwhelmed her with her personality, so she's shocked out of her orbit. (Also that kissing the shoulder thing is based on something I did once - ooops!) Hmm, it's not because she's got such a dismal relationship with Myles that she's attracted to Mags, but because .... she's attracted to Mags. Basically, Myles is an a*se, who she stuck with because she thought it was the right thing to do, but it's clearly not.
,br> Thank you for the review ~Carole

Hey dudette, this story is fan-fricking-tastic. Please write more fanfic( preferably Rose/Scorpius(please!:,())
Your are a amazazing author!:)

Author's Response: Uhm, thanks. Sadly I don't ship Scorpius/Rose, so you might have to try someone else for that - Sorry. Glad you liked this story, though. ~Carole~

Chapter: Chapter 3 - Prestige cuvee

Eeeep sorry I took a while getting to this! I kind of decided to have an early night when my sister stole the laptop from me... anyway, YAY to Dominique dumping Myles. He had it coming to him. Though I'm wondering how awkward things would have been at Dominique's work (unless she quit?), but with the constraints of the word limit, you probably didn't have room for that, lol.

And poor Dominique! I can imagine how strange it must have been for her to be told that Mags was leaving and then find out that she's not. By the way, I so loled when Mags said "gotten". Seriously, I had to actually scroll to the top of the page to check the author, lol! But she *is* American, so she would say that.

This is honestly a terrible review, but your story is excellent. I think things were a little rushed at the end (Dominique breaking up with Myles, and then her finding Mags and everything), but like I said, I'm guessing it's more because of word count restraints than anything.

Well done, though! This story deserves far more reviews, imo.

Author's Response: Yes, twas the word constraint that stopped me. I was about 8 words short of 10k in the end *sigh*. Okay, if you read Stars of Carousels (which I know you have ;) ) you might remember Dominiques profession from there. She's working as a chef. I make an oblique reference to her liking cooking in all this, and also references throughout that she could be on the verge of quitting the job, so I sort of thought that was enough, although I did have to cut an entire section in the coffee shop where she explains to Mags about cooking and spending time with both grandmothers in their kitchens :( . Sigh* word counts get me every time. I might re write some bits when the challenge is over ... if I have the energy.

Thank you very much for the review and all your others. It's very much appreciated. ~Carole~

Chapter: Chapter 2 - Methode Champenoise

:O

Myles is one b@stard. UGHHHHHH. How horrible for Dominique :( Especially considering how they work together -- Daphne's right in that it makes things difficult for people. And I hate that Myles tries to justify himself by saying that Dominique likes it rough, because it's just... UGH.

And I do feel sorry for Mags -- she didn't know Dominique was attached, after all, though I do think Mags overreacted a bit. It'll be interesting seeing what happens next :) You've created some great dynamics between Mags and Dominique so far, Croll, and I just love Mags as a character -- and Dominique (I so get what they're saying about editing, since it's virtually the same as betaing and everything).

It's a shame this doesn't have more reviews, because I think it's fab. In fact, I'm off to do some QSQ nomming before prom :)

Author's Response: EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! thank youuuuuu. I do like Mags as well because I think she's a sort of hybrid version of what I am and what i'd like to be. OOOPs, self insertion in a fic - hahahahahah. Nah, she's much more glamorous and has better clothes and make-up - sadly. Myles is a git, but you knew that from Stars or Carousels - sigh. Hmm, she did overreact a little, but the reason for that is explained in the last chapter.

Thank you very much and I hope you have a great time at your Prom!!!! ~Carole~

Chapter: Chapter 2 - Methode Champenoise

This is certainly not the sort of story I come across in my usual stamping grounds, but it is intriguing and very well written.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for taking a chance on the story as it's not your usual sort of thing. I very much appreciate the review as well. ~Carole~

Chapter: Chapter 1 -Le Vin du Diable

Hellooooooooo

Why this has no reviews is a mystery and a half *sigh* This was fab, Croll. I was hoping for a prequel (that is what this is, right?) of Stars or Carousels, and I think you've given Dominique a really interesting backstory here. I knew about Myles being rough and everything with Dominique, but it was still shocking and horrible to see how he treated her :( Particularly this bit:

But as she peered closer, she could see a faint pattern of blue on her arms and the red marks on her breast. A love bite, he’d said last night, but it was one that broke the skin.


Such a powerful and harsh image.

I also LOVE Mags. Yay to her being a writer :D I liked that Dominique didn't let herself be intimidated by her or anything, and Mags, also, ended up warming to Dominique,

Anyway, this is a rather useless review, but I blame the lack of fanfic during my exam period for that. D: Wonderful start, Carole, and I look forward to the rest :)

Author's Response: May I worship you, O Bebe avec la tete de grand (um, I know that says you have a big head, but I don;t know what brains is en francais). Thank you so much for reviewing and getting this off the zero *sigh*. Yes, it is the prequel to Stars or Carousels (I should probably mention that somewhere) and Swans and whichever one i write post Stars and pre-Swans -( hahahah - ideas whirring now. )

*sigh* originally Mags was going to write poetry as well, but I had to cut them from the story as the word count was excessive, but versions of the poems are on tumblr somewhere :)

Thank you again. ~Carole~xxxxx
