Simply amazing. Fantastic imagery and language. An original, and timless piece of writing.
Perfect in evey way.Author's Response: Thank you so much! :D Report Review

wow! loved it plot holes made it interestingAuthor's Response: Thanks! XD Report Review
This story is beautifully executed. I love your character work with Luna, and her unique perspective. I especially liked how you said that nothing surprised her, because everything could be observed and explained. I also enjoyed your explanation of the charm on the paintings.
I'm really glad you gave Sirius some company in the great beyond, at least for a little while. Thanks for the great read.Author's Response: Thank YOU! Writing Luna is always so much fun just because she does have such a different and unique outlook on life. Report Review
This is really unusual ... I'd dearly love to find out who painted that painting, and why!Author's Response: Ah, a mystery... Report Review

Of course I'll add an link of the oringinal site.
Looking forward for your reply.
Lots of thanks.

Amazing and very detailed story. ^_^ The characterization of Luna Lovegood was written extremely well.Author's Response: Thank you! Report Review
I am so glad I took the time to read this. It was beautiful, thank you for writing it. (: You have a way with words. Both characters were written flawlessly as well, and I appreciate that you put the two of them together. Very enjoyable.Author's Response: Thank you so much! ♥ Report Review
Wow, that was great! The characterizations, setting and overall all plot were very gripping I love it! *favorites*Author's Response: Thank you! :D Report Review
I think I shall favorite this story. I have such a tremendous crush on Luna Lovegood... her and Dagny Taggart from "Atlas Shrugged" are my two biggest fictional crushes ever. And you wrote Luna to a T.
I admit that I was at first expecting a Luna/Ron romance. But this story turned out better without the romance. There was something so... uncontrived about this story, something so completely perfect in the way Luna and Sirius became friends. All I can say is... wow! Great story!
Good news! Summer's here, and I'm writing again. I'll be updating "Dumbledore, Please Explain Your Twisted Logic!" more regularly, but not on this site, for obvious reasons. :D I hope that summer freetime has you writing as well.Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D I was actually originally going to write it as Ron/Luna, but then the friendship aspect of Luna's (potential) relationships popped into mind, and I couldn't resist.

I especially liked the ending if I had to choose. Normally endings are either abrupt and ill-written, or dragged out beyond belief. But yours was very well put together. I congratulation you. You made another happy reader!Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad I was able to pull off a successful ending! Report Review
I love it! i've always liked Luna... and the painting? genius! and nice language.Author's Response: Thank you! Report Review
its a good story
is there more to it?
i hope soAuthor's Response: Thank you! Unfortunately, that's all there is, but I'm so very glad that you enjoyed it! Report Review
Your POV on Luna is awesome!! Some authors don't know how to define or write about Luna, and the story itself was amazing. Love the last line before the paragraph ending as well->"I'd like that"...with her smiling admiringly...*sigh*i wish there was more though!! XD
LOVED it!!Author's Response: Thank you so much! :DD I'm always a little hesitant to write Luna, just because I'm afraid I won't be able to capture her - sometimes it feels like trying to cup sunlight in your palms, or something. Report Review
It's great. I mean... you've done it very well. Many authors don't know how to write about Luna, but you did it really well. And the idea was simply amazing. And beautiful. At first I thought that the dog could be Sirius, but then I decided it couldn't be. It think I was wrong XDD It's a cute friendship, Luna and Sirius :3 And your style... I like it so much. It's fresh and natural, but, at the same time, you created a fantastic atmosphere.
What can I say? That story is gonna be one of my favourites since now. And I think I'll have to read some of your stories.
Congratulations (and thank you, of course) for writing such a good fic =D

Very nice story! Your writing style was very natural and relaxed but with some great figurative language. Luna was characterized prerfectly, you didn't go overboard with her like some people do. I'm curious about one thing though. How did you come up with the idea for this story?Author's Response: Thank you so much! Luna is terrifying to write; I'm always afraid that I'll get her wrong! This story was done for the luna_exchange over at LiveJournal, and the persom for whom I wrote this asked for Luna gen and the stars. I snuck around the person's profile, and eventually discovered that her favorite character was Sirius. I didn't want to have Luna interact with an older Sirius (because young Sirius is so much more fun to write), and I didn't want to have Luna go back in time, since that was the most commonly used option. I've always been intrigued by the moving paintings at Hogwarts, so I thought, what could be better than having Luna go into a painting? She IS an artist, after all. Combine that with me looking out my window to find the precise afternoon which Luna describes at the beginning, and there's the fic! :D Report Review
I love Luna, this story really puts her views of the world. Well Done.Author's Response: Thank you very much! ♥ Report Review
You managed to put my three favorite characters into one story.
You're pretty awesome for that.
This one-shot is squee-worthy.
I really enjoyed how you put it together. Everyone stayed well in character, and that can be hard to do with someone eccentric like Luna.
The whole idea of the painting and going in it -- that was genius. XD
I'm going to add this to my favorites for sure.
Keep up the great work. :)
-AnnAuthor's Response: Hee, thanks, Ann! It's rather rare that you find a story with just Ron, Luna, and Sirius in it, isn't it? Hah - never thought about that before. Anyway, I'm glad you liked it! I was sooo terrified about characterizing all three of them, even though they all end up coming to me naturally in the end. XD Report Review
