Clicking into this, I was sure that it was going to be a Rolf/Luna. You surprised me, though, and I liked it! I can only imagine an old and shriveled, animal-loving wizard telling his grandson "Owning two huge reptiles beats a girlfriend any day." xD

I love how you included Tonks in this--I can totally see her as a friend of Rolf, Luna's future husband! Her characterization was perfect as well, she came off very Tonks-like while still giving heartfelt advice--which also came off as Tonks.

I loved Rolf's interactions with the animals, it read as so natural and second nature to him. And I love the name Porsaggio. :D

I thought the song lyrics fit the story perfectly, just to let you know. :) Overall, great piece!

Author's Response: You know, I tried really hard to add Luna at the end, because I do like her, but each time it kind of ruined the mood of the story, as well as the lyrics. And anyone who loved animals as much as Newt would surely have some animal/life advice for a struggling grandson.

Tonks was an unplanned (well, the entire story was unplanned for the most part) appearance. I hope I did her justice, because as the kind of writer that finds darker characters easier to write, she didn't come out too easily.

The fact you said that Rolf's interactions with the animals were natural is a huge compliment! For me, anyway. I think that writing that comes out easy and natural is a big part of making a mediocre story into a good one, so that's really, really pleasing. And thanks for mentioning the song lyrics, I was a little worried people would think they had no importance whatsoever. :D Thanks for the review!
