Hi there!

Awkward confession: I actually read this a few days ago but didn't review because I'm a rather lazy person. But hey, the House Cup has given me an excuse to write a lot of reviews, so I'm back again!

I really love how you've characterized Luna here. There are so many little elements you've added - like her packing a hammock to see dragons, mistaking that lovey-dovey feeling for having too much to drink, and the fact that her first thought upon meeting Rolf involved his singing voice - that help give Luna her very distinctive characterization - I feel like she's one of the hardest characters to write about from her own POV, just because she's such an off-the-wall person that it's difficult to manufacture that kind of randomness, but you do a really excellent job with it.

I love that not only are Luna and Rolf in this story, but Charlie is as well. We don't see much of Charlie in the series, but he seems like he'd be a really fun character, and you portray that here. He definitely knows what he's doing, but he's still got that Weasley sense of humour going on as well.

I love the detail you go into regarding the dragons - instead of just focusing on Luna and Rolf's interaction, you also draw attention to all the awesome things going on with the dragons as well. It weaves in really nicely with the Luna/Rolf storyline, and just makes it that much more enjoyable to read.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading and reviewing this! Great job! :)

Author's Response: Hey, I've been here for a couple years and I still feel like, "Oh! Really?!" when people say that they've read something of mine but just haven't been by to review. I'm glad the House Cup gave you a chance to do so because I love getting feedback from reviewers!

Luna was really tough. I tried to play up some subtle quirks without going overboard on it. I could see adding a few more if I expand this. It's great that you noticed the few little quirks I included and felt like they fit Luna well.

Charlie is really fun and I loved writing him because he clearly just has a blast at his job. The Weasleys seem to have the best careers out of nearly everyone in the wizarding world!

I'm a big fan of details and imagery and the setting was just really fun for me to explore, and I'm pleased that you liked exploring it, too.

Thanks for your lovely review!
