Hadn't read any Dean/Luna until now but I TOTALLY SHIP THEM NOW. AAH I LOVE THEM. See I've brought this nice flag for the ship and a fancy new oar, glad to be aboard.

I really liked Dean's voice in this, and appreciated the background of his time as a fugitive and his capture by the Snatchers. What a miserable experience :( but you really conveyed the fear in the time of war, the uncertainty and the distrust of everyone else. I really liked the line about "living had become work" - although Dean wasn't at Hogwarts taking exams like everyone else, he was dealing with much harder, real things. The beginning of this chapter is so chilling, well done.

The second section was very subtle. I love missing moments a lot, and it was great to see the other side of the story as Harry and co. are upstairs.

And the third part wahhh. Poor Dean, that is a lot to go through, and to see ahead in your future (especially when the future is so uncertain in a time like that) and to think what everyone else is going through at Hogwarts. Aw I wanted to hug him. So I was really happy when Luna walked in because she's the sort of person who I think can always make a sad person feel better (case in point Harry in OotP.) She has such a sweet way of saying things and connecting with people - despite (or maybe because of?) her eccentricities she really understands people, and is exactly what Dean needed at this point. ♥ ♥ ♥

this part, I supposed social ladders had a way of crashing to the ground in desperate times. -- this is so true. Really liked that line.

I could really gush on and on about this but my internet always cuts out at the same time every day and it's about to, so I'm going to post this really quickly. but I LOVEDDD this, Maggie, this is both a sad and very heartwarming story. Love Dean/Luna so much. Great work!!

Author's Response: Hi Kristin! You are great, as you well know :) It's an honor to have you aboard the Dean/Luna ship!

Thank you so much for the feedback about the beginning. I wasn't sure how to strike the right tone with it, because I've never really done anything too action-y before. But I did feel that Dean's time on the run needed to be addressed in some way. I always saw him as stoic and thoughtful (especially during this dark period of the books), and I tried to bring that part of his personality out while describing his harrowing experience. Glad you enjoyed it!

I felt that the story needed some grounding, so I added the second scene to give readers something familiar. And the third part is definitely my favorite :) Romance is my comfort zone for sure. Luna does have a way about her that makes it really easy for her to connect, and I loved showing that first connection between her and Dean. I also wanted to show a vulnerable, emotional side to her that doesn't really come across in the books.

Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm so so happy you came by, and so proud to have converted you to the Dean/Luna life :) Thanks again, Kristin!
