Hello from the review tag!

So I've been steadily reviewing my way through Post Scriptum, so I thought I'd give something else written by you a shot!

I've mentioned how much I love your description before, and I think you mentioned back that you sometimes go overboard with it. I still love the descriptive bits in this - they were very vivid and visual, but at least in the first paragraph, I thought it was just a smidgen excessive. Perhaps because all the things that were described all revolved around visual stimuli, rather than other senses (I think that might be the case - but this may just be me being incredibly narrow and only seeing description visually) as well?

Can I just say that I adore the way you've written these two? They are a seriously underrated couple, partly because there was no romance between them in the books, and partly because a lot of the fans want to ship Neville with Luna, but I think you've written them beautifully here. Something that's often missing in romance fanfics is that sometimes, romance can be seriously ordinary. You don't always have to go slay a metaphorical dragon, or play hard to get or whatever. And I think, especially after the craziness of war that both of them went through, giving Neville and Hannah a normal romance is just a nice way of showing things going back to normal.

And that last paragraph with the little box - I think I screamed in delight. I'm just a sucker for weddings like that!

Author's Response: Hi there! Nice to see you again!

I'm afraid my muse is to blame for going description-overload with this one-shot. I really wanted it to be muted and personal and very much about Hannah's senses and perceptions. While I don't think I will go back and take any of the imagery out of this piece, I will definitely take your advice about looking for ways to insert non-visual imagery into my other work. That's a really excellent suggestion and I hadn't thought much about it before.

I kind of get the Neville/Luna ship, but I do see Neville as wanting to settle down after his little bit of heroism in the war, and Hannah seems like the kind of nice, normal girl who would be perfect for that. It's great that you liked their normalcy and the way I cast a little bit of brief, faint light on their romance here. I really had fun trying them out.

Thanks so much for this lovely review :)
