Review #1, by UnluckyStar57 Friends...friends...friends...

12th January 2016:
Hi there! I'm here for the January BvB Review Battle. :)

I love that you've chosen to write a scene with Luna that shows her quirks as well as her friends' reactions to them. She is a rather odd character, and you did a wonderful job of preserving her oddness throughout the story. Also, the motif of friendship present in the ring echoes the books very nicely.

Even though everyone is all grown up now, they still react to one another in the same way. I like that Ron is still sort of skeptical of Luna's quirkiness, and the implied former relationship between Luna and Neville is very sweet. They have been separated for what seems like a good bit of time, but they are all able to pick right up where they left off.

It's very cool that you created a new way to keep in touch in the Wizarding World. Mostly you see modified Muggle technology, but the rings are very unique! The mechanism that shows each person when their friends are in danger is a smart addition on Luna's part--actually, that sort of echoes Molly Weasley's clock, so Luna kind of reminds me of her as well.

And of course, Luna was the one who brought the five of them together, in a way. So it makes sense that she wants to preserve their friendship in this way, which recalls her painting to mind. I really love that she wanted them to keep in touch!

Great job on this! It was a very short and sweet piece, and the characters are quite well-written!


Author's Response: Thanks for the nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed this bit of fluff. Luna is the character that I tend to specialize in, and I think I have the best feel for, so I tend to write her a lot.

I did mean for her to have a past relationship with Neville that was long ago. I loved the scene in DH with her bedroom and knew that if they were split apart that she'd want some way to keep in touch.

Glad you liked, and thank you.
