Oh wow. That was incredibly heart breaking - I can imagine it happening if Hermione had died in the final battle. Such a wonderful twist, that the letter was to Hermione. Beautiful.
awwwwwwwwwww this was such an interesting fanfic........i really enjoyed it
Awww. Though this isn't a pairing I usually ship, it was a very sweet fic. I liked to see both Ron and Luna stay IC and yet feel such a connection - Luna's healing really was rather touching. Plus, I love the way you wrote this, with bits of the letter as interludes. Brilliant!
Really interesting take on, what would happen if Hermione dies. Great little story.
I thought this was going to be dreadfully sad, but it was just right. I like how you ended it with him going to Hermione's grave. You stayed true to the way Jo has written the characters.
Ravensgryff, this was a fabulous story. I never shipped Ron/Luna, but the way this was written, it seemed totally plausible. I think that you portrayed his feelings very well. Their relationship wasn't too hurried, and Luna was finally seen as something other than a bumbling loon who says random things for the heck of it. Great job!
Ravensgryff, this was pretty good. I saw it in your banner, but I never really got a chance to read it until now. I have to say that it was kind of humorous, since Ron and Luna donít exactly get along, you know? But I really think you portrayed the characters quite well. I thought that the ending was really sweet. I like the way you wrote this; it seemed very real, but it was very sad how he misses Hermione. Such a shame to lose a friend or a loved one. Even though Iím not a Ron/Luna shipper, it is nice to see that sheís helping to heal his mental self because it cam be very hard to let go. Ron actually does have more emotional range than a teaspoon, as I can see. Great stuff! 10/10
I made "Squeeeee" noises when i'd finished reading this, it enjoyed it so much. You really did get Ron and Luna's personalities just about right, explained things without shoving them in our face, ect. This is definatly a ten.
Aww! This was beautiful and sad at the same time! I was a little confused by the italic writing. But when I read the last part, where he reveals that it's for Hermione, I understood. I almost cried reading this, though. It's sad but happy at the same time! I hate to see Hermione gone, but I like how Luna helped Ron heal. And I thought the letter to Hermione was wonderful and sweet. Great Job!~MALD
Beautiful story. You probably know my prefered ship ;-) but I thought I wanted to try something else, and I'm glad I did.
The characterization was wonderfully done. You did a really good job with Luna and Ron's feelings were spot on.
I like the idea that Ron is writing a letter and I have to admit that it made me cry when I realised it was for Hermione. I never cry when I read fan fics but this one really touched my heart.
I never thought I would like another Ron/Luna fic other than Harriet Evans' Dancing with Me, (I usually don't like Ron/OC fics) but this really made me change my mind.
I like the pace you've set here. The physical wounds does heal quicker than emotional ones, but those deep seated emotions can hinder one from wanting to be healed. You showed this perfectly.
Ron was hurt physically but the blow of Hermione's death was the one causing greater harm. I like how you showed Luna to slowly him him through this - and this was gradually shown as well... I love how they've started off: How Ron and Luna slowly became a friends and latter develop to something else.
The characterization were superb especially that of Luna's. The way she state the truth when least expected and how she'd go off-tangent.
The scene of Hermione's death was also touching I really loved the fact that you did not demean or made less on Ron's bond with Hermione just because this is a Ron/Luna fic.
Finally the ending. At first I thought Ron was writing a diary that fact that it was a farewell letter to Hermione makes it all the more poignant. Great fic totally believable and feels canon as well. ^_^
That's very good. I like how you depicted the battle where Hermione died. It was a good way to explain Ron's depression. Luna's well done too, not much like we've seen her but not OOC.
That was a very sweet story. IMO, Ron deserves all the happiness he can get.
