Review #1, by CassiePotter Remarkable

18th June 2013:
Hello!
I've never read any Dean/Luna stories before, and I really liked this! It's not a pairing I would come up with, and I don't think I'd be able to make it very convincing, but I think you did a fantastic job writing them together! Luna was written so well, and I really felt like I was inside her head. You captured the way she says everything so honestly, and is so comfortable in her own skin, and I think you took those qualities and did a really beautiful job putting them into the story when it's told from Luna's perspective. I think when you write in first person, a character's qualities get lost sometimes, because the narrator isn't going to describe themself like someone else would, so you have to show who they are through their tone of voice and the way they see things instead of outright descriptions. It's a lot more subtle, but I think you did a really wonderful job showing Luna's personality and how she thinks. She was really in canon, too! I loved how you wrote her feelings for Dean, and the day at Shell Cottage when she realized them. I could really picture it, and loved reading that whole memory. And then end was really lovely. I could imagine the two of them up in the Astronomy Tower, and Luna kissing Dean instead of telling him her feelings with words. This was a great one-shot and I'm really glad I picked it to read! 10/10

Author's Response: Hi Cassie! Thanks so much for coming to review this story! I always think it's just collecting dust at the bottom of my author page, but you came to give it some love! :)

I think a lot of people admire Luna for being comfortable with who she is, and I tried to capture that. It really was hard to get into her head and write in first person, but I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is a challenge, like you said, to show a character without having outside opinions on them. It works best with a very self-aware character, and I think that's definitely Luna :)

I like that memory too! I think they'd make a sweet couple, and I tried to squeeze as much fluff as I could into one chapter, haha. Thank you for the wonderful review, Cassie! It made my day! :D

4th December 2012:
This. is. amazing.

Wow.

Sorry, I'm still in shock from over-exposure to
awesomeness.

I've never read a Luna/Dean before, but I think I
officially ship them now! This was so fantastic!! I
really, really love that, as you said in the story,
here Luna isn't just "Loony Lovegood", she's a
woman, a friend, a lover... just WOW!

This is just written so perfectly and all the emotions
here are conveyed beautifully; this is a wonderfully
well-written piece and I ADORE IT!

10/10, absolutely perfect!!

Author's Response: Aww hi Jayde! I'm so excited you stopped by!

I'm glad I could be the one to introduce you to Luna/Dean. I have another one-shot up about them called For You, My Love (15+)...you should check it out if you want more of the ship! And shadowycorner has a great Dean/Luna story started too. Highly recommend it :)

I'm so happy you like Luna! To me, she did seem a bit different in this than she was in the books, but I'm happy you took that as a sign of maturity instead of just bad characterization :P I wanted to show a more feminine, relatable side to her.

Thanks again! This made my day! :)

It's Delia here from the review tag :)

So, this one shot was really good. I've never read Dean/Luna before, but I think you did a brilliant job. Also, I loved your characterization of Luna. She's such a difficult character to capture and I think you did it right.

There is a bit where I don't think during the kiss that Luna would've thought that, or that the kiss would've happened like that, but other than that, it was just about perfect.

Author's Response: Hey, thanks for coming by! This is my first ever story, and I like to think my writing has improved since then :) But I'm glad you liked Luna, because I was kind of apprehensive about writing her. And I get what you mean about the kiss; it was a little intense, wasn't it?

Thanks again for reviewing! I really appreciate your time :)

Nice story :D

I could hear Luna's voice in my head as I read... meaning that I think you did a good job on her character. I really like Luna but hasn't had the courage to write something with her in it (because I'm afraid that I would butcher her)... but this one is good. I can fell Luna's light and easygoing aura... It's just like her.

Luna and Dean... I've never considered that before, but it does sounds plausible, given the time they spent together in the Malfoy Manor, Shell Cottage, and afterward. I like how the relationships started from 'just another boy in the hallway'. :D

And thank you for reminding me that Dean is a great artist!

The flow's good and it's well written.

I enjoy reading it very much :D

Author's Response: Hi! Thank you SO much for this! Ohmygoodness I'm so glad you decided to review this story, since I haven't gotten too much feedback on it. This is so exciting!!

Sorry...I'm calm now, promise ;)

I'm so glad you like Luna! I was kind of afraid to write her too...she is definitely a challenge :) But it's really good to hear that my Luna has the carefree voice I was going for.

Luna/Dean is one of my favorite pairings ever...I just love the thought of them together. I'm glad it seems believable for you here :)

Thank you so much for the awesome review! You just made my day! :D

Review #7, by rj_sunshine Remarkable

20th December 2010:
Number 1: I've never read a Luna/Dean fic and this was outstanding

Number 2: I love the way you mapped out her feelings. it made me all warm because it felt so real

Number 3: I wanted to read more. Maybe you could write more?

Number 4: I don't understand why there hasn't been many other reviews because it was fabulous. I guess people are more wrapped up with other characters (guilty)

Number 5: I'm glad this caught my eye because it's the best one shot I've ever read (yes, even better than mine) Loved it, loved it, loved it, loved it. Now I'm a Luna/Dean believer 10/10, maybe an 11

Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I wasn't sure if many people would read this because Dean/Luna isn't exactly a popular ship, but I'm glad you decided to share your opinion with me.
I hadn't planned on adding to this, but now I'm actually considering it. Thanks so much for the review!
