I'd like to start out by pointing out how completely delicious everything in this story sounded. I actually just had Indian food for dinner this evening hah so fanfiction matching my real life yay.
But really to the point of this review: this is one of my favourite representations of Neville and Hannah that I've ever read. I just... love it so much! ♥
I really like how you wrote Hannah's love of cooking into everything. The way you wrote out each step of her cooking process in the beginning showed her attention to detail and how involved she gets with her cooking - and I could understand her being slightly irritated when someone comes in to interrupt! (but of course then she likes the friendly company. And that scene with the silly jokes about fingers made me laugh!) Ahh, and I just loved when she mentions she feels as light as fluffy egg whites, and compares Neville's laugh to chocolate :D Such wonderful descriptive phrases that reinforce Hannah's love of cooking in such a beautiful way. I just loved it.
I really like how you wrote Hannah's personality and background as well, how she started out as a Healer and then quit, and is still figuring out things and trying to be an adult while she works at the Leaky Cauldron. I could really connect with her too, being in a similar 'what-am-I-doing' phase. But as you so wonderfully pointed out through this story: it doesn't matter in the long run, does it - as long as you've got chai, samosas, and a good friend - those are the important things! ;)
This story was PERFECT. I absolutely loved it!
