Review:Alopex says:
I don't normally get too excited by Next-Gen, but I have to admit it has grown on me, thanks to a couple of funny, well-written stories I've read. This is another example of a Next-Gen story that I really enjoyed.

There was something about this story that seemed a bit different from your other writing. I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe it's because it's not dark and serious at all, but I think it has more to do with the flow. It has a flowy, dream-like quality that I really enjoy. You get that sometimes when you're writing about Luna, so maybe it fits to have it when writing about Lysander, but it just feels a bit different. It is something I could see myself writing, at least style-wise. :P

I liked the descriptions of all the accidents that Lysander has had with magical creatures, but even so he feels the familial pressure to continue with his studies in that area. Poor kid, trying to live up to well-known parents.

Anyway, it was a fun story with fantastic flow and little details.

There is one tiny thing I thought I'd bring up. Tons of people do write the Scamander twins along with all the Weasley-Potter cousins, but JKR has said (or so I hear) Luna had her children a bit later. Later, anyway, than the oldest cousins. There are so many of them, there's no real reason why you can't write some of them as the same age as the Scamander twins.

Author's Response: I actually knew that about Luna's kids, but I wanted to make it about one of the Weasley clan anyway. I personally always picture Luna being 8-10 years older even than Rolf and in her mid-thirties before having kids.

I'm glad that you think it has a flowy, dreamy quality, because I tried to tie it to Luna that way. I don't write next-gen all that often, so it feels weird to me, too.

As you know, romance isn't particularly my strong suit either, so it was fun to write a fairly light-hearted next-gen romance.

Thanks again for the reviews, and I'm slowly answering them.
