Bah, you and your characters. I simply don't understand how you are able to write canon characters with such depth and believability. They scare the bajeezus out of me because I'm so afraid of screwing them up somehow - and it's easy to point fingers when you're reading and say, "that character is not behaving as they should." But... wizard-God, I just cannot even express how much I adore your characters. If I could eat your talent, I would (but I would save some for you so you could continue writing brilliant things like this).

Anyway, moving on from my character-love fest, I quite enjoyed this. It takes a lot of skill to start with a situation we've seen in the books/movies and turn it into something completely different. Instead of just drafting, "Luna and a grumpy old wand maker are stuck in a cellar the end," you've turned their story into just that: a story. A script? I love the idea. I love the originality of it, and I love how you've executed it. Uniqueness has a special place in my heart, simply because sometimes it's hard to find, and this is just... bah. /eats

I think your flow is really solid, even though you're jumping kind of back and forth between various moments. It's easy to see the fluidity of how they've come together and formed a relationship, which is super hard to do. I've seen a lot of instances of, "I don't know you but NOW WE ARE FRIENDS." Kind of like that dog in Up. If you've seen that movie.

I'm completely off topic now and if I continue any longer I'm afraid I'll be ranting about clown wigs or dust bunnies or things equally ridiculous.

SO. I loved this. I love you. You're a very accomplished writer, and I want to read your things all day long (but then I would die from lack of nourishment, and that wouldn't be good).

All my love,
Rin

Author's Response: Baww.

Thank you so much for this lovely revew and all of your compliments, Rin. I adore canon and so it really makes me happy to hear positive feedback concerning my characterization of them. :) I'm not even entirely sure where this idea came from, but I am very proud of this story. It is very reassuring to hear that the progression of their friendship was believable!!

Thank you bunches! You rock.
Melissa
