| Tom Riddle Minor chapter 1 . 6/10
I like it - very much. And I like and agree with the review of Filigranka (May 27 2013), going deeper than most in the insight of the idealised fanfic compared to the Real World. Yes, the story is a little sad, but also filled with the often inappreciated love of the everyday life together with your lifetime pal. And then, of course, we can all somewhere deep down hide the memory of a long forgotten night when we were sixteen. Why not?

the titular concept is great for tying up loose ends but doesnt make the most sense from the character's perspective and has a few unfortunate implications

Wow!it seems very interesting to take a look into Luna's mind about harry asking her !
| chai4anne chapter 1 . 12/9/2014
What an intriguing examination of Luna, and-in that one short paragraph about her husband-of a kind of love that writers rarely look at. Intelligent, poignant, lovely. I'm so glad I came across this!

Right in the feels, you bastard. Right in the bloody feels.

Well written - but oh soooo sad ...
| seidh chapter 1 . 6/8/2013
Beautiful. I can't determine which is more painful, Luna being leftover, or Luna accepting that she is a leftover. I loved the friendship between her and Harry in the books.

Very nice fic. Almost meta (or maybe meta put into pretty narrative voice?) - it depicts the way Rowling and many other authors treat their characters very well. So, so functional - she is a single and he is a single and I need a romance. I need a death and Remus and Tonks are hard to handle as a couple etc. It's probably proper way to write fiction, but your fic, by taking it and changing into part of the depicted world, something the character is aware about, makes it a little more unsettling.
Though I'm not sure if Luna's vision of love isn't a little idealised one (which suits her well, I supposed, and it definitely suits the tone and the topic of the fic). The love, love in real world, is very often the result of circumstances and I'm not sure where border between "choice" and "good circumstances" lies. It almost like Luna overanalyses it - somehow, I think, most people can find some "reasons, situations etc." - like she finds "grief over her father's recent death, and desire for a family of her own, that drew her to Rolf, and desire for companionship that drew him to her, more than any real spark among the two of them" - behind their love choices.
It's not the drawback of the fic, absolutely not. I find it much better, much deeper because of that - it raises question which cannot be answered easily, and is doing it almost off-handedly, hiding it in good story.

I love your insight into Luna's life.

This was a wee bit of a teary eye flick. Well done.

You are an absolutely amazing author. No wonder this story has so many reviews. It runs very deep. Perfect for Luna.

A surprisingly moving story very well written.

Believable and touching. I had been hoping for Harry to end up with Luna since the fifth book and was surprised that he went after Ginny instead.
