May I first apologize for the time it has taken for me to stumble upon such a lovely fic. I have seen it here and there, and the name has intrigued me, but at first glance I thought it was only one chapter and wanted to wait to see if the story would keep being updated(I hate getting hooked on a story and then the author abandons it after a few posts) It was only after I investigated further that I noticed you had completed it with only one chapter. What a chapter it was!

I would like to say that I absolutely love the way you arranged the story. The chronology was just right in my opinion. It gave the reader a chance to adjust to the fact that Luna was going to die, and that she had excepted it. Luna has always been struck through with an inner confidence that others only dream of possessing. She embraces that quality so completely in every quality of her life, and you show that she embraces it in her death just as gracefully.

Your descriptions were distinct and wonderfully eloquent, painting vivid and brilliant imagery. I absolutely loved the intro, it was by far my favorite bit and one of the most beautiful death sequences I've ever read anywhere. This may seem a bit morbid, but that is exactly how I would picture Luna perishing, surrounded by beauty and wonder, content in her own awe. Bravo, darling, simply wonderful. A feast for the imagination.

The detail with Rolf Scamander was a nice historical touch, since Newt Scamander was the actual writer of Fantastic Beasts. I always like to see authors go to the trouble of researching the material they have in their fics. You have clearly done so, another plus :)

I got a nice warm glow from the scene with the swing set. It was a wonderful perception on human nature and the drastic change between childhood and maturity. It also did a great job of establishing Luna's carefree tenacity and intuitive regard. Rowling always made me believe that those observing Luna think her quite dim, but she sees exactly how they perceive her, and can just as easily use it against them. This girl is not dim, she is in fact, quite the contrary. You do a wonderful job of revealing how she portrays people; seeing all of their aspects and personality traits, in the blink of an eye. It is something of a gift in some people, this perception, and something Luna possesses in abundance.

I also enjoyed all of the eccentric creatures that surely graced the pages of the Quibbler coming to life in your story. That detail made this the perfect tribute to Luna in my opinion. My only question is, if it wasn't the harmless Slytherin mascot that bit her...What in the world was it? She did only catch sight of it's tail. Hmm...I suppose a little mystery is needed to complete this well-rounded work of artistry. Wow, sorry I took up so much space. I tend to ramble when I get excited.

Again, Bravo! I do hope that you continue to cultivate your wonderful talent :)
