Congratulations, you have just accomplished something that few people have ever accomplished. A) you made me slow down in the queue and actually READ while I was validating and B) You made me log out of my staff account and onto my actual account to review.

This, this was magnificent! It was so well written, and I could actually imagine myself there. And a fic set in India! So very authentic. There are some things that I loved about this. The first thing was Luna and Rolf and the way they ended up in India, going through customs and all. Luna was so beautifully done! I have never actually read a story featuring Luna and Rolf, so this was quite exciting.

And to go to India to look for Stubby Boardman! I just love it. How funny is that? This plot is original and well thought out, and I really think you have a gem here that is 100% unique.

And to the reason that I clicked on the story in the first place to validate it- the title. The Beatles song. I LOVE the Beatles, and my first thought on EARTH did someone take I am the Walrus and turn it into a plausible, well thought out songfic? And somehow, you DID IT! And it was amazing. Ahhh Lennon/McCartney

Author's Response: LovlyRita, When I posted this I was secretly hoping you would notice my shameless advertising on the forums and check it out (who better to appreciate a Beatles story than "LovlyRita"? ;) ), but I never imagined you would be the one to validate it, let alone immediately review it! I am truly stunned and honored by this review, and feel I can't thank you enough.

I'm so glad you thought that the Indianess was authentic. I have spent SO much time researching India, on top of planning out how the Indian Wizarding world would be different from England. I am very relieved that my hard work has paid off. Plus your comments about Luna made my day. She's such a tricky character to write, and one of my favorites, I really wanted to do her justice.

And YES! the Beatles time in India was a huge part of the inspiration behind this. I was so worried that no one would pick up on that, so you can imagine my delight that the first person who reviewed got it! When I signed up for the challenge and was assigned this song with Luna/Rolf as the pairing, the idea came to me like a lightning bolt. I don't think I could have come up with anything for this song with a different pairing. Since a lot of the lyrics don't really tie into the plot as a whole, just random details in the narrative (Mainly it's just the chorus that really reflects the plot), I wanted to add strength to the piece by drawing in other forms of Beatles inspiration. Choosing India as the setting just seemed extra perfect as the Beatles were there right around the time they recorded Magical Mystery Tour.

Okay, this response is threatening to become longer than the review so I should finish up. I am absolutely thrilled that you liked it so much, and if it ends up on story seekers, that would absolutely make my HPFF life. Honestly. :) I'm honored that you would even consider it. Thank you so much. :)
