Review #1, by datbenik513 Beauty in the Breakdown

17th November 2010:
You may probably know by now that Luna is one of my favourite characters in Potterverse and I'm prepared to read any tastefully written story about her.

This one, however, was completely different from everything I've ever read about her. I couldn't put it down and read it in one breath; in fact, I read it four or five time in a row, clinging on every word.

It's a beautiful ode to a beautiful mind that, on the contrary to all she'd been through, tries to find beauty in everything and everybody, and she's quite successful in that. A stunningly visual, emotional piece that made me reconsider quite a few things in my own life. Thank you for this once-in-a-lifetime reading experience.

Author's Response: thank you for this wonderful review!

The way Luna makes everyone smile in this story reminds me of my friend Louise. She's one of those people that make you laugh even if you think you'll never smile again.
love this story. great work

Author's Response: I'm glad it did, because that's exactly how I imagine Luna to be and the way I wanted to portray her in this story =) Thank you!

Review #4, by Girldetective85 Beauty in the Breakdown

24th October 2008:
Your writing is exquisite. I think you could pen a story about Argus Filch and make it poignant and moving. This was fantastic, as all of your work is. I don't ever once remember a story written in second person that I thoroughly enjoyed like this, no matter who it was written by; your writing makes me forget the POV and just focus on the story itself. You are incredibly talented. This look into Luna's mind was brilliant - you've kept her in character, yet we get a sense that she has matured, that she's somewhat subdued and affected by everything that has happened, that she is rapidly growing up. Part III was absolutely stunning. I got such a sense of closure from this story knowing that Luna moved on and concentrated on the beauty of life, which is something that's so attractive about her character. Gorgeous, gorgeous story. I can't praise your writing enough; it impresses me every single time. Please get published! 10/10

Author's Response: I don't know what to say or how to thank you for your lovely words and for your support.

Review #5, by serendip Beauty in the Breakdown

20th October 2008:
Seriously Steph, that was really just beautiful. I think that's the best word to describe it, especially with the title and Part III and all.

I loved the way you kept it so canon, because, being a canon stickler I get so annoyed when people portray Luna as something that's so not Luna. Your characterization here was beautiful, and sweet and so true! Especially the things about her friends, because we all know how much Luna admires her friends.

The only thing I'm not so fond of (that's not to say I don't like it, because I do!) is Part III. It's kind of hard to explain, but I don't think it's as sweet as Part I and II. But I still loved it. :)

Author's Response: Writing Luna is always such challenge, so it means a lot when you say that I managed to stick to canon! I, too, am a fan of canon. ^_^ Thank you (:

Review #6, by Onora Beauty in the Breakdown

4th October 2008:
Absolutely gorgeously written, and I really think you've captured the character's perfectly; all those little things that make up who they are. Luna, especially. And I'm completely in love with Rolf. :]

I don't know why, but my favourite line was, "You love Neville." So simple, yet so beautiful.
Looking forward to reading more of your work, my dear. =P

Author's Response: aw, thank you very much Onora! I'm very happy to hear you liked this piece (:
