Review:What Nee Style! says:
Merry Christmas from your Ravenclaw Secret Santa! I know that you said reviews aren't at the top of your list, but I'm always looking for an excuse to read and review more fan fiction. A few of your one-shots caught my eye, and I couldn't resist reviewing them. And already I'm very glad that I did!

I loved the way you've written all your characters in this story. I actually don't think I've truly read a Rolf-centric story before, but you have set the bar very high with this one! He's extremely likable, and I felt so bad for him, especially in the first section -- but he's got a very competent way to deal with his heartbreak. It's so fitting for a Scamander to escape the world's troubles by seeking out the company of animals. And I was extremely impressed with the way you wrote Tonks, especially, and that's mostly because though she only had a small part in this story, it's one of the more in-canon portrayals I've read of her lately. No one ever writes Tonks as being clumsy, for some reason! I don't know why that trait gets overlooked, but there it is.

I love the name Porsaggio for the lizard, too -- I'm always really terrible at coming up with names, and therefore envious of people who seem to pick them with ease. And again, it just really does suit him to use animals to get over Gail's rejection (though from the way you've written him, I can't think why anyone would reject poor Rolf!). The ending of this story was great in that vein, as well, with the positive note we get, with Rolf going to look at the magical alligator. Reptiles over girls indeed!

This was a great story, and if I may say so, it went by entirely too fast. I'm already looking forward to sitting down and writing another review for you! Brilliant work!

Author's Response: Thank you once again! As you can see, I tend to gravitate towards minor characters when it comes to writing. And Rolf was fun, and I got some magical animals in and whatnot, but I also liked Tonks here. I hadn't expected to include her, but things worked out and I was glad I got her in. She's one of the characters I hope to write more of in the future. And she is so clumsy! JKR worked that in there ALL the time, and I agree people overlook that fact often.

I have no idea where Porsaggio's name came from-- I think it had something to do with the color purple-- but I found it and it was love at first sight. :P I don't consider myself particularly talented at naming, but for this story, I was definitely pleased with the outcome.

Thank you for the kind review! I'm really enjoying them. Happy holidays!!!
