Yay another one of your great humour one-shots!

This was just brilliant! ♥ Every line of it had me chuckling away about the silliness of what Luna was daring to say and her thoughts were so spot on and so her. Iím just so happy to find a characterisation of Luna which doesnít drive me up the wall due to missing out the complete airiness and madness of her. I seriously do think your Luna may be my favourite so far.

The inclusion of all the things from canon such as the way Aurors used gum disease and the inclusion and mentions towards canon characters while incorporating new and original things was really great and was the thing which made it for me if Iím honest. Just the general mixture of madness had me chuckling away, and a little sad if Iím honest as Luna is still no closer to her Crumpled Horned Snorkacks.

Mortimer = ♥ I just have such a vivid image of him in my mind as you described him so well and he just sounds great. I think the fact that heís a muggle geography teacher combined with the fact that he bumps into Luna is the best thing. He was just so normal, even his name, and then for him to meet her and not get too freaked out by Dirigible Plums had me in hysterics. Then heís a squib who wears yellow socks, what could be more amazing?

I loved the fact that Luna had a job at Magical Menagerie too because it leads perfectly to her future career of being an explorer as she might get some sort of research opportunity there. That was a really great one-shot Kristin and I really hope that you write more humour things as you have a real talent for it!

Author's Response: Aw, Kiana, you are too sweet ♥

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you thought my portrayal stayed true to the Luna from the books. She's one of my favourite characters so I was initially nervous to write her because I didn't want to get it all wrong! Eee - your favourite so far?! ...Excuse me while I roll around on the floor and flail my arms excitedly. :p

I'm glad you liked the mix of canon and original things and Luna's perspective of them, and the idea of her working at the Magical Menagerie. It was the most logical place I could think of for Luna's first job after Hogwarts (in the challenge I wrote this for, I had to focus on Luna's first day at work).

I'm so glad you liked Mortimer too. He tries very hard to be normal, but yeah he's weird in a different way. And it's wonderful to hear that you thought I described him well! I had been wondering how that would turn out since I could only write the things Luna would notice, haha.

I'm so flattered you like my humour stories :) And I have indeed written other ones, maybe I'll toss one in your review thread sometime. Anyway, thanks so much for your wonderful review!
