Reviews for Three for a funeral
Whyhow chapter 1 . 7/29/2017
Magpies and circles... As a Terry Pratchett reference, which I immediately thought of even before the author's note, something even worse than they know is going on. I checked the magpie rhymes with Carpe Jugulum, and Luna starts with Nanny Ogg's rhyme for the first three lines (maybe four, since I'm not sure we hear either of their fourth verses), five through seven don't match either rhyme, and the line at the end seems to be in reference to Agnes' rhyme. Is this a version you encountered elsewhere, or was it invented (at least in part) for this story?

Great, I especially love Hermione's fear of what Luna sees is true.

very nice:)

i prefer the rhyme that goes

one for sorrow

two for joy

three for a girl

four for a boy

five for silver

six for gold

seven for a secret, never to be told.

and pratchett references are always appreciated!

lovely story. You look into the character of luna very well and hermoine too.

”One world might end tonight, perhaps. But there are plenty, you know.” She looked out through the window again. ”Sometimes I think it should have ended a long time ago,”

I particularly like that line, it is very luna-like to say something profound like that, and true as well. The magpie poem fits in really well with the story too.

(and thanks for reviewing me!)

Stark, and very effective.

Oh. Beautiful. It's really truly a beautiful story, and I like the bond Luna and Hermione share, even in the face of tragedy.

Her voice was hoarse and terrible - what are you hinting at here? Is Luna a Seer? I loved the magpie rhyme, and this is a thought-provoking look at Luna and Hermione's friendship.

A weird and eerie little ficlet, with another beautiful image of Luna and Hermione's attitude towards her. It would be interesting to find out which magpie-rhymes ARE the ones known by the magpies themselves, don't you think?
