you got your character's name from a '
'great and terrible beauty' correct?
love the story!
AWW! It's so good yet so sad at the same time. :) I love how Luna was in the story. It is so sad how you feel the character's pain. It's so powerful.
Sorry that this is so very late.
I thought that this was a very sentimental and poignant story. Often we do not realize the gravity of our actions when we are young and end up regretting things. It is lucky that Jemina has a grandmother that is willing to share with her the life lessons she has learned. I also like how you tied Luna into this, she is one of my favorite characters.
Minor quibbles, you switch from "Mom" to "Mum" and have a "had" where there should be a "was" but overall I think this is great!
Great story, but the beginning didn't really catch my attention. Good job in description!
Aw, Luna. Love.
Hey-did you get Jemina's name from "A Great and Terrible Beauty'? Love that book. :-)
Author's Response: That is exactly where I got her name.
Gemma Doyle is a character in the book A Great and Terrible Beauty, did you know that? No time now, but I would like to read your story later!
Short and sweet. Okay, not sweet exactly, but a very good story. You did use "mOm" once and "mUm" once, too, but that's really a small thing. I would've liked a bit more background information, perhaps, on the relationship between the girl and her grandmother as well as between Lana and Luna. I like the emotions of the old woman who hasn't fogiven herself for something she did so long ago mixed with the emotions of Jemina.
Awww, that's really sad. But where was Ginny in all this? Didn't she defend Luna? And why hadn't she seen Luna for that long, then? Great story.
