I don't know what to say. You understand Luna so well. I always liked Luna because she was so dreamy, carefree, everything felt lighter once she entered the picture. And you really managed to capture that, the very essence of Luna.

The pace of it was sweet and mellow, though so, so sad as the reader knew what was coming. Still it wasn't tragic, you know? One feels okay with her death, even though it's upsetting. Why? I guess it's because she's content with it, she understands that death is inevitable, and she knows she's got nothing to regret. By your writing, all this really transferred to the reader. I swear I felt it. This was a lovely read. And the reverse chronology worked well with me. It was different from the usual, therefore good. Just...wonderful job, Jane. :)

Author's Response: To be perfectly honest, I don't quite know what to say either! You're too nice to me, Lol. I think not writing this is first person was probably the best decision I could have made, because doing this from Luna's POV would've been so much harder. Striking that balance of carefree innocence and that innate knowledge she seems to have would have been extremely difficult.

I know, I had to choose a character to kill off for this, but I decided to put a sort of bittersweet twist on it, rather than go for outright depression. Luna is just one in a million and I felt like her death couldn't just be like any other and spending her day panicking just wasn't her. I adore her.

You're actually leaving me with no words here. I'm so pleased that the story managed to speak to you in this way and that you liked the swing scene. I think everyone has sort of recognised it as a Luna thing. There's no need to explain why she's there, she just is and it's because she's her. I'm glad you enjoyed the chronology and I hope it helped you out with yours in some way!
