Look. Get your stuff published. I'm serious. Do it.
Author's Response: Haha thank you for your wonderful review.
*bows to HoH*
This was a nice first chapter. It's an easy but exciting read, especially since you ended it with a cliffie.
I like how Luna's sort of grownup, but she's also the dreamy person she is in the books.
Famos reminds me of Mundungus. He's certainly an unpleasant character.
Oh, no! What's wrong with Luna? Perhaps a certain golden-haired magic Muggle will know...
This was a very lovely chappie, even if it did end with an evil cliffie. Again, nice characterization of Luna.
Well, are you good or what?
See that over there? There goes my sceptism.
Who'd have thunk? Oh, right - you and poultrygeist did.
that is so sweet.. very colorable too!
Anyone to posess the cruelty, the hubris and the cowardice of Draco Malfoy and renounce it all earnestly and remorsefully years later is a sight to behold. One becoming sensitive and sweet to boot is a sight to behold even moreso.
Keep at it?
Great story! You made me seriously loathe Ron Weasley just now.
And that's saying something - in the books, he's just a couple of good deeds' short of a Mary Sue and you quite belieavably pointed out how he, without acting OOC at all, could have hurt and belittled one of my favorite characters into tears and dejection.
Aw, i loved it. It was a little bit of an odd pairing, but it was still really good.
Well the wizarding world has turned upside down!
This I like!
Wow. I'm kinda confuzeled right now.
Is that a good thing?
I very much liked the beginning, especially your descriptions of the drunkard --- ahaha -- and the tavern itself. :]
wow this chapter is intense .i love this story so keep on writing
Fabulous story! I can't wait to hear more!
A wonderful story! I love it! The passion, description, and emotion in the story is very strong. I can't wait for you to write more!
I really enjoyed reading this story! It's different, but very good. I can't wait for more chapters to read.
Why didn't mine go through?
Well, Druna is my pet ship... so naturally, I had to read the only Druna fanfic I've ever seen. And it was EXCELLENT!
Though I DO doubt your portrayal of Ron. Ron is too sweet for that... he never gave things up for reputation. He seems rather abusive...
All in all, this is good enough for my favorites! ...Though, I've never had another favorite...
Write more on this, or else!
Author's Response: Ron is under pressure from Percy.
Very lovely story, Marauder by Midnight (Beth). I have a couple of things to say.
First of all, I'm a bit confused with your present characterization of Luna. In canon, she's almost always dreamy, far away, and with a vague expression on her face. Why is she suddenly so like this? Is it because she assumes a false personality at school, and this is her true side? I understand that this is only the first 6 chapters, and there's a complicated background behind this fic, but why?
Also, I think you characterization of Draco as a not-so-redeemed but still in some sense good (so far) Death Eater. Draco IS a Death Eater, but I think that, after the defeat of Voldemort, the way you show he wants to clear his name, etc. is very nice.
What I found rather odd was that Draco would kidnap Luna, of all people. I understand she's a reporter, but, couldn't he just kidnap...I don't know, Rita Skeeter?
Good job so far! ~Kathy
Author's Response: My portrayal of Luna is there for a reason; as mentioned, Luna recently went through a very traumatic event where her husband Ron had attacked her dreamy character verbally when she had been attempting to do good. She realizes how much harm her dreamy character does and represses it, as you see in the story. However, sometimes that old character will slip out.
Draco not only kidnaps Luna for the story but also because his outside connection, as portrayed in the first chapter, thought Luna was asking too many questions about Draco.
So...Draco and Luna? I think that's the most interesting combination I've seen yet....I'm intrigued....
i love this story *new reader* plz update
Good chapter! Your characters have grown and changed immensely from canon, but convincingly. Ron's sad, but again, convincing. Luna's so serious, but with enough oddity and sweetness left to still be Luna. And Draco's different, but then, we don't know his whole story.
So, good job! I'm really looking forward to learning the Real Story.
I loved the names Luna had for the article title ;D They made me laugh.
I'm trying to think of something you could improve on, something that would make this story better, but I can't.
Your BETAs must be awesome :)
