Wow, that was great. I love Luna as a character and sometimes find she can be painfully OOC, viewed as someone who doesn't have proper feelings. I love how she comes to the reolution that she is happy no matter what, it was so sweet, I almost cried. You have protrayed her outlook on life very realisticly, and throughout the fic you show us that nothing brings her down, and when Ginny makes her realise this, realizes her place among her freinds, it concludes the whole story perfectly. If this had come at the beginning, we would just think "Ah yes, but we knew that already". But the way you have written means we see how Luna always looked on life, and death, positively. And when Ginny says it at the end, it has real meaning. This review makes little sense, I know, I really shouldn't write reviews when I'm tired. But anyway, great story, perfect characterization, Lovely!
PS. I used an excerpt in our class, I couldn't help it
Ooh, I love that song ^^
It does go along with Luna very well. I never thought of it =)
I saw your excerpts over at the boards and thought i'd pop over and read the whole fic, and i'm glad i did.
This was a really lovely and heart-warming peice of writing. You write Luna really well and the bit with her and her mum was wonderful!
I reallt like your style.
"I always have faith in my heart. It's all I need to get me through ..."
Using that as a last line, was a good idea. It really finished it of perfectly and is my favourite line out of the whole fic.
Keep up the good work! This was fab!
This is a beautiful story. You wrote Luna absolutely perfectly, and the song does fit her very well. I could definitely see Luna being "friends" with the deer. The flashback was both sweet and sad. I think you are a great writer, and this was a wonderful, touching story.

That's so wierd! I thought I was the only one who thought that song related to Luna! Gerat fic, I loved it!
Author's Response: Oh, thank-you! Don't worry, you're definitely not the only one! ;D
yay! i love how you portray luna......a deep thinker. no one can quite get the kookiness that jk makes her to be so we get he otherr side of her!
Awwww! This was so brilliant! It was so sad though! i cried! (mostly because of this story, but partly because i'm listening to Mockingbird by Eminem. I know it's old, but it just came up on my ipod and i had to listen to it.) anyway, now that i'm done rambling on how much of a sap i am *awkward cough* Brilliant story! This was really, really well written! I love your writing style! But i've never heard that song! I'll have to check it out! 11/10 most definately for this cute little one-shot!
