Hello pookha!
I'm here to review your fic as requested. Dear Luna! She really is a treasure, isn't she? I definitely enjoyed your characterization of her. She had to say goodbye to Professor Dumbledore in her own, unique way. How very fitting! I also thought the Headmaster's appearance-without dialogue-was perfect. Nothing really needed to be said and I think he realized that Luna did not require any parting words of wisdom.

The symbolism of her dream...first falling and then growing wings, really spoke volumes. Luna has left the nest, so to speak and gained the ability to fly on her own. Dumbledore, I assume, helped foster her independence.

The only thing I wanted to comment on, is the ambiguity of Luna's sleepwalking. I wasn't quite sure until the very end that she had indeed strolled to the lake. Perhaps you would consider making this clearer at the beginning?

Thanks for sharing this piece with me, pookha. Please feel free to drop by my thread and request another review in the future. Take care!

Best,
celticbard

Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the characterisation.

Really, I wanted her sleepwalking to be ambiguous: was it just a dream or did she really fly with Fawkes?

I'm happy that I didn't go too heavy on the symbolism--that was my main concern here.
