Review #1, by marauderfan First Year

22nd July 2017:
okay so I guess this is kind of a backwards transfer, but I figured I may as well copy this one here as well since I was transferring reviews :P

MY DEAR RENEE ♥ I hope you are having a wonderful Winter Solstice today.

Ah! I love this ship! Never in 1000 years would have thought of it on my own, so thank you for drawing my attention to this idea and I can TOTALLY see it. I LOVE THIS. They both are very weird people, and in this story it's such a compatible weirdness and they are just the cutest. I think what makes it work so well is they're already established in canon as being very passionate about the particular things that are important to them - Colin about photography, and Luna about... well, belief I guess, and magical creatures. Although they are interested in such different topics, I think there's a lot of compatibility there in terms of personality and I'm so glad you're exploring that with this story. Even something as small as the fact that they both kick off their shoes for the train ride and they both just kind of accept one another's weirdness right from the beginning. Aw. I can't wait to read more.

As always, your writing is beautiful. That last paragraph is such a gorgeous image!

Sorry this is a short review but I'm about to be late for work :P

Happy Hanukkah!

Review #2, by Marshal/Scooterbug8515 First Year

28th April 2017:
Aww Colin! He is so cute! You get his personality down to a T in my opinion! I just love him and want to squish him! Also, a Luna/Colin story? *blinks* I have never seen such a thing but it is an interesting thought and idea. Luna is such a sweet and patient person so she would never be annoyed by Colin and well Colin is Colin and sweet himself.

I love how you captured the innocence in this moment. There isn't anything heavy like love just that he thinks her picture is nice to look at. Thank you you kept Colin right for his age. So many people fail to do that so that makes me happy.

Also I love that Katie is the one that helps Colin learn that there is a way to develope film so that it moves without a magic camera. That is sweet of her and shows a trait of her that we don't see which is that she is a shutter bug herself. This is a good start to what I am sure will be an interesting story with a very unique and interesting ship. What gave you the idea of doing Colin and Luna together? The idea is certainly cute!

Author's Response: Hello! I'm usually terrible at responding to reviews, but your question about the idea for this ship get me excited =)

I got the idea when brainstorming for a rare pair challenge, but it was not assigned. Actually, the first thing I thought of for this story was the title. And it grew from there but I don't want to say more because spoilers ;)

I'm so happy you think Colin is in character. I really do think they're an excellent match, for the reasons you say and others.

I like writing kids and I work with kids, so i always try to be developmentally accurate. personal pet peeve ;)

Aw, yes, Katie! I love her and she's not in many stories. It was fun to indulge myself and include her in this one.

Thanks for the lovely review!

Review #3, by ABlack First Year

28th April 2017:
I’ve read many an HP fic, but never a Luna/Colin one. Right from the get-go, you capture Luna and her slightly bewildering disposition so well! It’s obvious to see that there’s an immediate connection between the two.

And the toe wiggling? You had me grinning there. I could readily see it all in my mind.

Now I’ve always been curious about the moving pictures in HP. If it was based on a potion, you’d think it would be available at Diagon Alley or Hogsmeade, yet we never see it. Also, you’d think Harry or Hermione would have shown an interest in it, seeing as they were Muggle-raised/Muggleborn.

Also, how old is Colin in this piece? Would he be able to whip up a potion like that or would it be beyond his skills? Would he even have all the necessary ingredients in his potions kit? I would have loved to have seen him struggle a bit brewing it, or worse yet, having to figure out how to obtain any components he was missing.

Ah, but then he sees Luna’s photo and wow … what an incredible description. I love this: “Her fingers twirl in hair the color of sunshine, or perhaps moonlight.” Really lovely turn of a phrase – you paint such a vivid picture with such few words. Little wonder he can’t look away.

Ugh! Such a good start. It really makes me want to read more of this ship!

Review #4, by krazyboutharryginny First Year

13th April 2017:

Aw, this was so sweet! I haven't read much about Colin Creevey, and I definitely have never read any Colin/Luna fics. But honestly you made it very believable! This story was so short but I was smiling pretty much the entire time.

I really loved the scene with Alicia Bell talking to Colin about photography. I just always like scenes where an older student is genuinely kind to a younger student, and also Colin was so excited about the potion and it was so cute.

And aw, that last paragraph is so wonderful. It created such a vivid mental picture and you used such gorgeous language.

Honestly your language use throughout this whole piece is really great. Everything about this story, aside from being very sweet, was kind of... I'm not sure how to describe it besides maybe playful? It was just very light and had kind of a dreamy quality to it.

Even though this was short it was really enjoyable and managed to make me feel all gooey and sappy about a pairing that I'd never even considered before, so kudos to you! And I think you did a really good job with Colin.

Fantastic work!

Review #5, by dirtydeedsdonedirtcheap First Year

13th April 2017:
Her hair is the color of sunshine.

Uh!!! Way to make me melt. I am a puddle. This was magnificent. I love how innocent they are here. First of all Colin and his camera, gushing, makes me swoon. I just loved the initial interaction. You captured Luna's character, her entire heart and soul in the beginning and in the end. It was just all so very innocent. The shoes off, the way they're relaxed around each other, the way he isn't put off by the fact that she has her magazine upside down. Normally I'd find it strange if someone asked if they could take my picture. If he asked someone else like Hermione or Ginny I'd be a bit put off and expect them to say no. But Luna is that breath of fresh air that is willing to go head first into the unknown and make someone's day. Then you switch to him taking photos of really his favorite subject, Harry, and everything sounds whimsical. It sounds nice the way he's there snapping away and yeah maybe Oliver doesn't want him there but he didn't say an outright no. Then when Bell came into the picture, well the story, and said he could make his photos come alive! It's just a sweet gesture that a sweet boy deserves. The end was my favorite though. In so few words you were able to capture the essence of Luna. I think he would look at that photo fondly. The pure perfection of a girl who isn't perfect and isn't trying to be. Ah, excellent job!

Review #6, by Secret Valenpuff First Year

28th February 2017:
This story has no reviews or love that I can see! So your Secret Valenpuff is here to fix that!

First up, I freaking love Colin.

I have never ever thought of them as a pairing before (who has?!) but now that it has come to my attention, I ship them so hard. They seem like cute little outcasts (I don't actually know if Colin is, but that's kind of how I see him) who could be the best of friends. There would never be a dull moment between them!

I love that Colin chooses to ignore implied social warnings. He's an opportunist, if nothing else.

Renee, this is cute! I'd love to see more of them actually interacting, because instead all I'm thinking about is Colin following her around like a little puppy dog (which is still adorable)

The first letter to spell out the last word in the sentence is: L

Love Valenpuff ♥

Author's Response: Well I'm definitely just now seeing these reviews but thank you so much Bianca! Er. secret unknown Valenpuff person. :P

I really want to finish this story bcs I ship them so hard too! I agree with you that they have this mutual oddity about them that can't be anything but fascinating, you know?

All the letter hints here would've been quite helpful haha

Thank you so much again *hug*
xoxo Renee
