I read this a little bit ago and have only now been able to leave a review! :P

I think this has been said earlier but this was written so well and so not like it was a “Task One Challenge” that I can understand why you beat out the other stories! (And that stings my ‘Claw pride just a tad bit :P )

What I liked most about this was that Neville Longbottom had a character arc to him in just under 2500 words. He realized that he could actually do something, could overcome adversity in his own way and not mess it up. I think the one thing that he had troubling him growing up (pre-Nagini) was the fact that he’d mess up, fall on his face or utterly fail on anything not relating to Herbology. So for him to see that he could actually face a dragon and get his mission accomplished, I can see how that changed him.

I absolutely loved the fact that he tickled his dragon! That is so brilliant and speaks, at least to me, how he’ll handle his Auror duties in the future. He won’t be one of those men who “shoot first, ask questions later” but he’ll actually be working for the greatest good and not to show his own power and might.

And how adorable was it that Neville thought of his grammy in producing his Patronus? ♥ That was SUCH extra love. So was the ending with Ron! :)

Post-Hogwarts Neville has always interested me because I like seeing how he’s matured now that he’s found his own inner strength and I think you showcased that well here!


Author's Response: Hi there, Charlotte!

I love, love, love what you said about how Neville won't be one of those "shoot first, ask questions later" sort of people. I think that he tackles things differently than most. Where some would have seen the dragon and immediately thought to hurt it somehow in order to get past, Neville's first response was to tickle it. That says a lot about what I wanted to highlight in his personality. Just because it's a dragon doesn't mean it's not worthy of kind treatment; so rather than fight it, he just made it take a nice long nap. ^ ^

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!
