i am SO sorry for the extended delay in this but I am here now ^_^

ok, i really liked this. i don't think I have ever read a fic with no warnings before - in the spirit of the challenge, you did really well - it was a nice moment to handle, and you did it beautifully.

i like that you chose this moment to describe - and the artistic references gave it an extra dose of ownership. are you an artist? if not, you definitely know enough about the topic to write it convincingly.

you wanted to know about luna didn't you? i haven't looked at your request in a while, but i think that was the main concern. well, don't worry. i think you did a wonderful job with her. she is someone i have never attempted to get inside because i don't believe I can understand her well enough, but i think you can, in this moment anyway. the reasons you gave and the motivation was lovely, and i think it was a nice touch to reference her mother, as she does so in the books occasionally.

I particularly liked this line: Not to constrict, not to bond, but to connect, to bring together.

i think that captured the spirit of the piece beautifully.
overall, this was a lovely read. thank you for asking me to take a look at it and again, i am so sorry for taking so long to get here!

Author's Response: It's alright! I must say that the review was worth the wait (:

I chose this moment from the books to write about simply because I love the scene in DH to bits when Harry finds Luna's paintings. I thought it was very touching, and seeing as I always struggle with writing Luna, it seemed to be a perfect opportunity to work on her character. Plus I didn't think there was a risk of warnings so it seemed perfect, ahha!

I do paint, although not very well, but it's useful to write about something you know, I suppose. Most of this was based on the very little painting practice I've had - I'm more of a drawing or photographer person. Paint's a very difficult medium for me, just like keeping a fic 12+ and free of warnings was pretty difficult too, strangely. I'm usually a dark!fic person so this was quite refreshing.

Thank you very much (: Luna is a struggle to write well, so it's good to know that I didn't butcher her character in this.

Thank you very much for reviewing! Honestly, I didn't have to wait that long at all, no worries. Thank you very much indeed (:
