Hiya! Review tag.

I adored this! I don't quite know why, but something about it was just so quirky and imaginative and very satisfying to read. It was really funny, and I loved getting this view of the magical world from an outsider's eyes.

Neville and Luna were hilarious to read. I always liked them as a pairing in the films but I've never actually read any fic where they're together, so this was a nice new experience. Obviously they're quite different here to their canon selves! Haha, but I did kind of think it was in the realm of believable differences, you still kept the basis of each of their personalities in tact while working with the plot, so that was awesome, well done!

Some of my favourite quotes were:

He stuck out like a sore thumb in Branson for any number of reasons. The knit cardigan covering his button-down shirt, the British accent, the way he kept trying to order some girly drink called buttered beer... it all pointed to the fact that he wasnít from around these parts. Strictly speaking, not many people were actually from Branson, but this guy was in a class by himself.

"First we went to Norway, then Austria, Egypt, Gabon, Madagascar, Mumbai, Angkor Wat, Xinjiang, Uluru, Kauai... wait, maybe it was Xinjiang then Angkor Wat. Where were we looking for the Moon Frogs... Anyway, it's all kind of a blur. Seems like yesterday I was in South America, but now here I am."

It sounded like English, but Rick didn't have a clue what Neville was trying to say.

That was the great thing about Branson, as far as Rick was concerned. Everything always went according to plan.

Overall, well done! This was a super fun and quirky story that I really enjoyed :D

Author's Response: Hi, there!

I wrote this in such a hurry for the House Cup event that sometimes I forget it's there. I actually just went back and read it again so I'd remember what you were talking about.

I also really enjoyed the outsider's perspective when I was writing it. Rick has so little in common with Neville -- magical vs. muggle, American vs. Brit, etc. -- that it was really challenging in places to try to decide what he would and wouldn't pick up on.

I've always enjoyed the idea of Neville and Luna having a thing for some amount of time, even if the two of them didn't end up together. They both operate on totally different wavelengths.

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