REVIEW TAG!

Oh, wow! This was fantastic! Short, yet so eloquent! I'd always wished to read about Neville, Luna, and Ginny's attempt to steal the Sword of Gryffindor! And yay! This was really nice!

I think you did really well capturing each of the protagonist's personalities. I could see the bravery in Neville, yet still sense some of his hesitance - like he hadn't quite grown comfortable with being a total badass yet, but was still getting there! Those aspects of Ginny's personality, where she's so loyal and supportive of her friends also really shone through. And can I just say that I adored your Luna? She's one of my favourite characters, and I've read stories where her unique brand of Luna-ness is portrayed as being dreamy and weird, but without those flashes of intelligence and insight that only Luna has. I'm really glad that this Luna didn't have that - the Sleeping Draught thingo being a case in point.

So yes, this was wonderful, and I can't wait to read more of your stuff!

Author's Response: Hullo! First of all, thank you very much for taking the time and stopping by my story. I am very happy to see you here!

I'm pleased you liked how I portrayed the characters. Characterization is definitely one of the more important aspects of a story to me. I always strive to capture the essence of the characters as close to their originals as I can. So hearing that I did it well is music to my ears :D

Having undergone some personal alterations to my personality from the time I was young, I have realized that in truth we don't change 100%. So naturally, I couldn't see Neville changing completely either. I imagined that despite being a lot braver, more determined to do what's right, he would still retain that hesitation that characterized him in the past every time he had to do something against the laws.

Luna was a major worry for me because of her personality. She is SO original and stands out in such a wonderful way in the books that I was terrified of ruining her. I'm glad I didn't :D

I'd like to thank you again for taking the time to review this!
