|Reviews for What Luna Sees|

The comment about needing seven books for Luna to explain why Hermione didn't finish school on time was GREAT. It made me laugh

What a wonderful idea for a story, I liked it very much! A lot of grinning and laughing out loud.

A delightful and very funny story. I love Luna. She is such a refreshing and original character. I enjoy your take on her. Your description of her waking with a hangover is just delectable.

QAnother brilliant story

Another brilliant offering. Your Luna is the best I have read after JK's Luna.
Your descriptions of Luna's waking discomfort was very descriptive and funny. I loved your references to Magical Theory and Limitations of Magic: the last being particularly clever. You could nearly give JK a run for her money (now wouldn't that be nice) with your book titles and the names you give some of your characters.
Ginny was very restrained, not rising to Cho's bait... she did very well for a temperamental, easily riled redheaded witch.
You say that Hermione is more than a year older than Ginny and Luna, and she is just that much older than Luna, but she is 23 months older than Ginny...almost 2 years older.
I wonder what the legal age for drinking is in the wizarding world as Ginny is still only 17. Wonder if Mama Weasley knew where her youngest was and what she was doing. Probably not.
Another happy half hour of reading.

Nice touch! Go Neville. I loved this!

I laughed my ass off while reading this.

I always love the stories in with gossiping witches... it makes the characters more human

An interesting look inside Luna's head, to say the least. It's rather sad (but ultimately true to the series) how most of Luna's comments get completely ignored, as you have demonstrated here.
I have noticed what I'm fairly sure is the first case of word-misuse that I have seen in any of your stories, barring occasional contraction and homophone mishaps. Luna must have been lying isupine/i on the bed, originally, or else she could not have wiped her face or sat up in one motion. I guess we could blame her descriptive mishap on her hangover.
The other thing that surprised me a bit is how outright imean/i Ginny is when she gets alcohol in her. I suppose this could be foreshadowing the events in Hunters and Prey a bit, but it calls into question exactly how much of that ordeal was her fault regardless of evil plots.

Cute story-I thought the end felt kind of random but it was very engaging.

Thanks for the best laughs I've had in a long time, Neil. This story was so funny I think I was giggling after every other paragraph! I've just got to say that I am glad I've never been that hungover. Poor Luna! It was so interesting reading about the events from Luna's p.o.v., and I think I have a much better understanding of her thought processes now. I'd guess R.M.B. would really like your Luna in this! :) I also really got a kick out of the comments from the drunk sots at the Leaky Cauldron...once I deciphered them, that is! I know it's not nice to laugh at others, but they just take the prize. :) Loved the girl talk as well, and was surprised that Neville had more votes than Harry. I can totally understand why that is, however, since he was there all year & so many would've looked up to him as their leader, and Harry was gone hunting horcruxes. (Out of sight, out of mind.) I almost think someone should tell him he actually got more votes than Harry - just think of the ego boost that would give him! :) Maybe then he'd lose Romilda and date a girl who deserves him?
'...are we going the simply stand here?' [...to simply...]
Great story, once again!
| PrincessSkywalkerOrgana 11/26/11 . chapter 1
except I think ginny was a bit of a jerk here. In that she kept rubbing in the fact that she had Harry.
| Sirip 11/23/11 . chapter 1
super like! Such a fun story and Luna is spot on!
| red-jacobson 11/22/11 . chapter 1
You know, I really can't believe that this story hasn't gotten any reviews yet! I thought it was a cute story, although I'm not thrilled that you left it with the canon pairings, because I like Luna with Harry a lot better than Ginny, but then, I'm no fan of the Weasley's at all!
I'm sorry to see that it's marked complete, because there are lots of places you can take the story if you chose.
Anyway, thanks for writing, and I'll take a look at your other stories when I get the chance

Very nice especially Luna's descrption of her hangover. Nice way to reunite all DA female members and, surprise! Neville won the popular vote! Thank you for a cute, short story!
