Review #1, by maskedmuggle Cruel Spite, True Friends

12th June 2012:
Hello! :)

I found this to be a very unusual but really interesting story to read! It's such a different plot to any other I've read - I think it's rare for Luna to be involved in a plot that involves such spiteful girls! - and Ravenclaws nonetheless! I really liked how slowly the reader comes to realise what the Ravenclaws are doing to Luna, even though Luna herself doesn't quite realise it yet.. I felt so sorry for her out there in the cold - and I can't help but think there would have been serious consequences if she had been left there for any longer! But I loved it when Neville came along and when they both went in to the Cosy Hearth - Neville was so sweet as well, the ending was really lovely :)

The only suggestion I have is Luna's characterisation feels quite off in this - especially at the beginning and her dialogue with the other girls - I don't quite feel like it's very Luna.. and also where she wants to look really good for him.. though I guess that could've been the spells.. I really liked that common room riddle by the way! I wouldn't have got it but it makes some kind of logical sense, hehe. Anyway, a really interesting story - nicely written :) I rambled a lot in this review.. oh, but I also liked the little ending in your A/N about all the evil things that happened to the Ravenclaws after that :P Nice story :)

Author's Response: Many thanks. Your feedback is much appreciated. You're probably right about Luna's characterisation not being very good. I need to do more studying of the books. Glad you enjoyed it anyway. :)
