|Reviews for as luminous as the moon, as blinding as the sun|

It's an interesting portrayal. It's realistic though, because it would be so easy for life to become horrible for little Lily Luna, because nobody's perfect, not even her, and they all expect her to be.

Oh, this is different, but I liked it. I liked that it was kind of a depresseed!Lily (not that that is a good thing or anything...).
I always like seeing next-gen characters dealing with the pressure of being the children of practically celebrities. I mean, it would be tough, wouldn't it?
I like the title of this too. No spelling or grammar mistakes. Great job!

I really, really like this. It's just what you would expect to happen, isn't it? Harry Potter's youngest, his precious daughter, starting her own rebellion in her fall from grace. A wonderful drabble. I loved Lily's thoughts, they were so angsty and...teenagery, you know? Great job :)

Love it! How ironic that both of our portrayals of Lily Luna are the same. This was a great piece of work, keep up the fantastic job!

I loved this! This is exactly how I picture Lily, because it would just happen? Wouldn't it? I'm sure Harry and Ginny would care, but she would just feel that they don't. You explained her feelings really really well, it was so lovely to read.

Oh my goodness, this is absolutely incredible. I adore reading Lily Luna fics and, in particular, unperfect!Lily and you have written her so well. She seems almost exactly like my headcanon of Lily and I think your writing has so much depth and is so beautiful it's unreal. For me, this is my favourite line: "Little Lily Luna Potter can't wear that mask and contain, or rather masquerade her emotions boiling over any longer." It is absolutely perfect and really, really well written. I also love the first and last lines, they're so fitting and you're really good at your endings. Fantastic! :)

This is just how I imagine Lily, with everything from her parents, brothers and cousins to live up to. It would be hard to be Harry Potter's daughter, especially his youngest, so I think you capture the things that come with that really well. Good job :)

Oh, poor poor Lily! I can well imagine Harry's children having one hell of a lot to live up to, and I think you showed that really well here. I loved the way you wrote her emotions, especially the part about her feeling suffocated, and the ending was just gorgeous. I'd love to see this continued and find out where here rebellion goes! Lovely fic, thanks for sharing :)

oh, wow, this was brilliant! you're clearly a very talented author and i loved the way you captured lily here. great job! :)

So beautiful. I love Lily!
These lines are especially wonderful;
"So she walks out of the house, tears threatening to spill, hair deliberately amiss. As expected, the media snap as many shots as they can of her, from every angle, in every way.
But photogenic little Lily Luna doesn't smile that blinding smile (the smile that's as blinding as the sun, or as luminous as the moon in the night sky) for them anymore.
It's the beginning of a rebellion."

Aww thats sad. Poor Lily. What happends next? I loved this. I liketnatbhef life isnt perfect, and that shes expected to be aomething shes not - really good :)
| glowing neon 10/15/12 . chapter 1
I loved this. I think you've captured very well the way that a teenager would respond to this sort of media attention day in and day out, especially in the line "A pawn to be taken out in a game of chess, nothing more, nothing less."
| dragonflybeach 10/15/12 . chapter 1
I can see Lily feeling this way. I can also imagine how her parents would be so caught up in their own lives that they miss what's going on in hers. Great job.
| owluvr 10/14/12 . chapter 1
Oh poor little Lily. You are pretty good with writing emotion-I actually felt bad for Lily Luna. I think that this could possibly be canon (which is always something I like). I really liked how you said that everyone expected her to be perfect, and they expected her to be this, and that, and I thought that that was very realistic. I also thought her reaction to it was very realistic-do what people do best-run away. Overall great job!

Wow, this was gorgeous. In all next-gen fics Lily Luna is perfect and gorgeous, but this drew me in from the first line just because it's so different from all the other stories. Honestly, I dislike next-gen with my whole heart because every one of them is the same: gay Albus and Rose/Scorpius, but this is just so asdjlffadfj. x)) I love your writing style, and your spelling and grammar were perfect-o.
"So when she gets home, she screams. She cries. She cries her heart out to her pillow. She cries her heart out to James, to Albus. To anyone at all that cares.
(her parents don't care about her.)" It shows a whole new side of Harry and Ginny, which pleases me also.
Great story. :)
