Hey! Here from review swap :)

This was really sweet. I think you did a great job of characterizing both Luna and Rolf. Rolf is a perfect academic, trying to use the words he knows to describe something that isn't scientific or sensible in the least, and Luna is delightful in her casual dismissal of his need to fit in with everyone else. Also, you're the second person I've seen who has put Luna in a yellow wedding dress. Is that canon and I just missed it? Either way, it's quite fitting, or so I think. Very Luna.

I also really loved your description of Rolf's many mental photographs. You breathed life into so many happy moments in their marriage and in their lives as mother and father to their children, and I could clearly see his affection for her as he watched her toy with her own curiosity and explore it all.

I think the way you described their meeting was perfectly in character, too. It's sweet to imagine him blabbering on and then stopping to find that not only was she listening, but also that she had an opinion of her own to add to the conversation. It's like he was really able to see past her dreamy, carefree nature into the intelligent Ravenclaw that dwells inside her.

Great job! Thoroughly enjoyable and well written :)

Author's Response: I hope you get a cavity from how sweet you thought this was! :)

I wasn't even meaning to make him academic, academica (hee hee, couldn't help it) but now that I look at it, I guess I did!

I think Luna and her dad wore yellow to Bill and Fleur's wedding and said something about it. I can't remember exactly...or maybe it was just her dad who wore yellow... It is Luna though, isn't it?

I truly tried my best to make those little moments come alive and I'm so happy to hear that it came alive. I think of Rolf as this big burly man who blabbers on sometimes and needs Luna, funnily enough, to bring him back to earth. :)

Thank you for this awesome review!
