Well, I liked that little fluffy thing you put in at the end :)
got me all smiling and stuff :P

Author's Response: No, thank you for the review and the positive feedback! This story gets ignored sometimes so I'm glad it got you smiling! I couldn't resist the fluffiness at the end, it's in my nature to put some in :). Thank you, Thank you, Thank YOU! And you're welcome.

Review #2, by Fleur Delacour Potter The Wrackspurt Detector and The Magic of Dirigible Plums

13th March 2011:
I find that your characterization of Luna was well-done. I like how Pamela is intrigued by Luna, but stops talking to her when her friends come back. It's hard to admit it, but a lot of people are like Pamela is that sense. She's definitely not a Mary Sue. Nice job! I like the fluffy bit at the end :)

Author's Response: Hey!

I'm so glad Luna's characterisation here is getting good feedback! I was also super worried about the fluffy bit! I was shaking in my boots (not literally) when I was posting this story to the archives!

Pamela was a character that came along while I was thinking about how people are different people around different people (does that make sense?) After reading the HP books and seeing how much Luna is discriminated against, I figured, not everyone is mean, they just go along with it. So, Pamela is my outlet for that feeling.

Thank you so much for the compliments and the review!

Review #3, by marinahill The Wrackspurt Detector and The Magic of Dirigible Plums

Aw, that was really really sweet! I loved the build-up to the end where Neville tells Luna it's actually a remembrall. I liked even more that after he takes a sweet he starts thinking the same as Luna. I think you captured Luna's character really well here, which is a great compliment because she's a terribly difficult character to write. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! Luna is one of my favorite characters...well my favorite character actually. Anyways, I'm just really glad she came out alright, she's a bit complex, and I wasn't sure she'd come out realistic. The whole concept of remembralls reminded me of wrackspurts, so I really wanted to incorporate that. Thanks for the review!

Review #4, by comet855 The Wrackspurt Detector and The Magic of Dirigible Plums

4th January 2011:
That was really cute :) I had no idea about the rememberall until Pamela mentioned Neville. That was a very clever idea, and sounds like exactly the thing Mr. Lovegood would do, it reminds me of the Crumple-Horned Snorkack/ Erumpent horn, though not as dangerous :)

Author's Response: Yeah, I was just rereading that part of Deathly Hallows when I was writing this! I thought that Mr. Lovegood's confusion on magical artifacts could've affected Luna's childhood...a lot.
Thanks for the review. :)

Review #5, by magicmuggle01 The Wrackspurt Detector and The Magic of Dirigible Plums

29th December 2010:
Longbottom and Luna, what a pair they would make. Two people who are maybe two of the most scatterbrained people that I know. A perfect match made in heaven. Perfect score of 10/10. Please update when you can.

Author's Response: Haha, I basically adore any pairing that isn't Luna/Rolf Scamander. I detest the idea of her marrying someone who isn't a part of the books. Though it is suggested that Rolf's grandmother or other was an author of one of the school text books... Anyways, I'm not sure I'll be updating this. I liked the way I ended it. But I'm so glad you liked it! This plot bunny just popped into my head suddenly! It was so much fun to write!

Review #6, by xLauriePotter The Wrackspurt Detector and The Magic of Dirigible Plums

Hello, Laurie here.

First of all, Thank you for participating in the challenge!

I like what you did with this, I thought this one was a tricky one but you have managed to pull it off well.
Despite your reluctance to add in ďromanceĒ I like the brief conversation between Neville/Luna, Iím normally all for canon but Iím all for Neville/Luna, theyíre adorable!

I think you wrote Luna pretty well, I can understand sheís a funny character to write but you seemed to manage.

I think you could of maybe done something a little different with Pamela, she seemed kind of odd. But iím not sure if this was your intention so..

Overall, I think it was well written.
Iíll get back to you about compí details.

Author's Response: Hey Laurie!

I'm really glad I joined your challenge. This fic was me just having fun with my writing instead of having a plan for it.

I'm glad you like the Neville/Luna part I added in, I couldn't help myself. I love writing Luna, she's my favorite character, at least at this point in my life.

My Pamela character wasn't supposed to happen originally. I was planning on having Luna be in isolation for the duration of the holidays, but I found that boring so I added someone. I wanted to add in someone younger, who was too innocent to understand the whole concept of the status quo, but still was a part of it nonetheless. I think Pamela managed to be part of that. However, she did come off stranger than I planned for her to be, but I can't help but like her that way. My obsession with the quirkiness obstructs my writing ability.

Thanks for leaving the review, you got to reviewing it a bit quicker than I thought you were going to. It really brightened up my day. I imagine you'll PM me on the forums about the details. Thanks so much.
