Finding Fantastic Beasts

Today I took some time off from writing an essay on how Africa is 'created' through photography to reread 'Making Money' by Terry Pratchett.  Gladys and the Chairman with his 'rubber bone'...  I love all the little links and references to his other books as well, like the joke shops that features in the Tiffany Aching series and the fact that it was Vimes that gave the first golem.

I also got my latest fic back from its beta, the lovely raisinous-fiend, and attempted to add some pictures to it.  I don't think the image quality is particularly fantastic, but at least it looks colourful.  So, storytime:

Title: Finding Fantastic Beasts
Rating: PG (for a little mild swearing and insinuation, if you squint)
Length: 2,060 words
Disclaimer: Harry Potter et al belongs to JK Rowling, including the Diricawl, which is mentioned in 'Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them', although we know it better as the dodo.  The Apsarute really doesn't exist...as far as I know.
Author Note: With thanks to the raisinous-fiend for beta-ing.  This is technically a sort-of sequel to Keeping Childhood's Creatures, but both can be read seperately.  Heh, and there is indeed a Mauritian beer called Phoenix. 

Summary: Luna Lovegood meets Rolf Scamander in a bar in Mauritius and he tells her that she's narrow-minded.
