Long Live Harry Potter! ~8-)
What about sirius? WHere is SIRUS?
wouldnt they like die like sirius? but it was lovely!
i love your story please write more maybe on e about harry ginny and ron and hermione
i really enjoyed harry watching his motheres life and learning more about the parents he never really knew
this story is amazing im a total harry potter fan i read every detail and i think you got lunas charater very well
what happens next? Can't wait to find out. This story is really interesting and vivid, and seems in character. The only thing is I'm unsure if Luna and Harry would just go under the veil like that, knowing that apparently the veil is Death...But I think when you're close to the veil, you kind of stop thinking straight so I guess it could make sense.
The rest of my review that got cut in half:
This is your first story? O.o wow.
There were so many things that I loved about this! I was drawn in by your summary, I’ve always Ben curious about Harry/Luna as a ship, and even though I then saw your point about this NOT being a romance fic, I still really wanted to read it.
Harry and Luna. My two least favourite characters in some ways. Their characters are so complex and the interaction between them both is SO difficult to write but actually I think you did a really awesome job! The interaction and conversation between them was believable and in character and was so witty it never got boring, it was great. I also really loved your Luna characterisation. A lot of people think they can write Luna just by putting in random references to a mythical magical beast but you didn’t do this, when you DID use a random mythical beast you used it well and it fitted in, so congrats on that!
Harry was surprisingly well written as well. I’m always wary of anybody by JKR writing harry because I feel that she is the only person who is truly able to understand his character, but actually I think you got him pretty close. Your remarks about remembering Moody, the thoughts about becoming a father and the mention of how he hoped the article would not be about his new job were just so wonderfully IC
Author's Response: Wow, long review! (My favorite kind....) I reworked the dialogue a lot, it was really hard to balance because, as you said, they're really the most complex characters--well, I think so--and I had to keep pretending to actually BE each of them before I got anything right. I was worried to death about the 'random mythical beast' :) 'cuz I have no idea about anything except for Blibbering Humdingers, the Crumple Horned Snorkack, and Nargles. So I was forced to make one up--I was going to use the Snorkack at first, but I think it's so overused; plus Luna has an affinity for all magical creatures! You really think I did okay on Harry's character? * blushes at compliment * Thank you!! I know Harry's really modest and a little quiet, and he'd say know he's not--but that's just him being more modest. :P I wasn't very certain at all if I made him mature enough while keeping his personality straight, but I thought he'd probably be unsure about his future as a father, especially with no point of reference (such as from his own father or Sirius) and I think that's one reason he'd have gone through the veil anyway, to ask for advice. I just tried my hardest, and I'm glad Harry and Luna seem like themselves. I feel all happy and pleased now, thank you for reviewing! :)
Love the Santa story! What a cute idea! :) Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: I love that story. My mom always told it when I was little, and now that my siblings and I are all grown up (almost!) she tells it to my cousins and they are soooo cute and excited to hear it. :) I wanted to share it, it feels like a very James-ish activity.
I liked all of it! Especially the part where they realized they weren't ready to die yet, All those memories of Lily's were awesome!!!
Author's Response: Yes, I could never have killed Harry and Luna--that'd be the most depressing story ever. :( Plus I'd have had to put at least eighty warnings on the story.... I think Lily's memories are my favorites so far. I'm kind of building off of her timeline for all the others; hope that doesn't give anything away!! Thank you for reviewing. :)
i love this story! I love harry and luna together, you can tell they're good friends! great plot, and update soon! :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm having some issues with the next two chapters though--there's a lot to consider! But I'm glad you like it, Harry and Luna have such a nice relationship in the books, friendly and interesting, so it's really neat to write for. :)
I only have one word for you: brilliant. I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Brilliant? Really? :D :D Thanks thanks and thanks again, I'll be putting up Chapter 3 asap!
I really like this chapter. I like to the part where you have memories of Harry growing up and being born. The memories are a good idea. I wonder what you will come up for Luna if you do put some memories of her mom in it. I Can't wait to see what you come up with! (I would love to see how Luna's mother met up with her dad :D)
Author's Response: I'm dying to give away the whole story right now... but of course, I won't. :) The memories are something I was on the fence about, it was just--is there more I can do with this? But when it come down to it, I like the simplicity of it (I hope it's simple, anyway!). Thank you for reviewing, glad you like the story!
WAIT?!? What?! Are they dead? Um....post soon! Now I'm hooked!
Author's Response: Hmm... are they dead? I guess you'll just have to wait and see! :) Chapter 2 is in the queue! (hey, that rhymes!)
ohhh i like it keep going
Author's Response: Thank you very much :) I'm writing chapter 2 today!!
