I thought this was a really unusual story, definitely, but it was also very engrossing to read! From the start I thought it was incredibly bizarre to see Neville so incredibly drunk.. and then to find out the blond girl was Luna? She seemed a bit too crazy to be Luna, to be honest :P

I liked how Neville was drunkenly recounting his holiday travels to a complete muggle and not realising all the magical details he was giving away - of course leading Rick to think he was absolutely crazy. I do think that all that stuff about Neville getting so much more attention from women now is also very realistic and believable, and I can believe that Neville would start to question it all. Anyway, I really liked Rick's characterisation - he seems like such a nice, easygoing muggle and I liked how he took the time to speak to Neville.. pity he doesn't remember too much of it! So yeah, I did think this was a very bizarre story, but at the same time it was also lots of fun to read! :)

Author's Response: Hi, there!

This was a fun story to write and I definitely exaggerated Neville and Luna's personalities a little for effect. That said, if the two of them were traveling around the world, trying to move past the all of the stress and depression from the war so that they could get on with their lives, I could see them getting a bit wilder than they were in the books.

Neville and Rick were two people who were destined not to connect on any level. The chasm was simply too wide. That's a good thing for Neville, since he pretty much smashed the Statute of Secrecy to bits. Rick was loosely based on several of my uncles. OK, maybe not *that* loosely. ;)

I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
