Review #1, by datbenik513 Seamus in Tír na nÓg.

10th March 2009:
Wow! This was truly amazing.

First of all, because of your impeccable, almost poetic English. A gulp of ice-cold water in the Sahara!
Second, because I've had a healthy fascination with everything Irish for years and years.
Third, because - for apparent reasons - you've chosen Seamus; we don't see him too much.

Both his and Luna's characters are very much in place.

Accio "Oisin in Tir na nOg"! I will have to read it now, both in English, and if I can find it, in Gaelic as well.

A very touching story, coming from your very heart. Thanks for this wonderful experience!

10/10

Author's Response: Thank you so much for that. I don't know what to say. I'm just really delighted with this review and I'm glad you enjoyed the story.

This was an interesting story, very unusual, I liked it. Would I be right in saying your Irish (I am).

Author's Response: Yes, you would be right. *grin*

Thanks for the review. Glad you liked it.

OMG, That's so sweet!

I almost never see Seamus stories, but what makes this one even more unique is the message behind it and the great writing. Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review and the compliments. This was originally written as a present for an American online friend who likes mythology. Thanks again. I really appreciate it.

Review #4, by padfoot4ever Seamus in Tír na nÓg.

I used to love that story when I was a kid!

I guess you're Irish too, yeah??!

That was a really great story, well done! (",)

Author's Response: Yes, I am Irish and I liked legends when I was a kid too. My favourite was Deirdre of the Sorrows though. I don't know why. I think I just like tragedy.

Anyway, thanks for the review. Glad you liked it.

Review #5, by SilverThimble Seamus in Tír na nÓg.

30th December 2007:
hello!

wow. I must say, I'd never have thought of that. Very original idea you have there, and you carried it off well. I loved this sentence:"Tír na nÓg was the vague sort of dreamy world that she’d always seemed to inhabit mentally anyway." genius... ^_^ And you really got the Irish accent down--some people seem to think "top o' the morning" is in general use. I did think you could have stretched out the part where they're actually in Tir Na nOg a bit more, but it was a dream, so I understand the whole vagueness of it.

Anyway, it was very entertaining. Great job!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review. Glad you liked it.

I am Irish myself, so the accent was no problem. It was the one fanfic where I didn't have to worry about accents and expressions. And I agree with you: the "top o' the morning" thing is irritating.

Thanks again.

Review #6, by Iloenchen Seamus in Tír na nÓg.

29th December 2007:
This was an interesting story. I have to admit that I was a bit worried if I would understand the story in the beginning because I have never heard of Tir na nOg before, but you do an amazing job of explaining the legend during your story and giving me all the information I needed to understand this one-shot.

I like the fact that Seamus and Luna are the main characters of your story because I haven't read much about them yet. But I have to admit that I'm not sure if Luna wouldn't have the same doubts and problems with Tir na nOg than Seamus. Even if she always seems lost in her own world, I don't think that she would be happy in Tir na nOg. But that's just my opinion, and I understand that other people see her differently.

All in all, this was a great story, one that I think would even have the potential to become a short story or a novella if you elaborated it a bit.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I'm glad you feel that I explained things adequately. It was created as a gift for an online friend, who is American, so I was careful to explain anything specifically Irish.

Yeah, I take your point about Luna, but it is written from Seamus' point of view, so Luna's feelings have been a little glossed over. He believes that she is oblivious to the negatives, but whether she really is or not is pretty much up to interpretation. *grin*

Anyway, thanks again for reviewing, particularly for such a detailed and well thought out review. I really appreciate it.
