Very good one-shot!
Yes I think the violin suits Luna's personality while the piano suits Draco's.
I love stories that people are connected to music, and you did this beautifully. I wish it had been continued as more than an one-shot.

Such a lovely piece, I loved it. Made my heart swell, and I agree. The piano suits Draco perfectly

I don't read (and review) much but I really like your story. It gives me comfort and it just has this, idk, relaxing vibe (?) to it.

This actually brought me in tears

Interesting premise, and handled well! It always bugs me when people always dismiss pureblooded characters being able to play musical instruments as an impossibility, because music is something that transcends all boundaries (there have been mentions of wizarding music groups, yes?).
I like how you address Draco and Luna's physical similarities, while comparing those visuals with their contrasting personalities. The added contrast between piano and violin also seems fitting.
At first, I thought Draco was rather OOC, but tying in his POV explained his behavior and added a nice depth to the piece. It definitely makes the whole scenario feel plausible to me. The ending really sealed the deal for me, because the bittersweet ending reminded me of how I like my Draco/Luna interaction best: something special happens, but it ultimately comes to the end. These characters could definitely find solace in each other, but a relationship between them seems unlikely. It's a realistic look at a sweet moment between two under appreciated characters.
Nicely done! Congrats on the milestone!

This was beautiful. I have no criticism for such a poetic story. Favorited.

I have chills... CHILLS... I'm not usually a Druna fan, but... Gosh, this is just... Perfection 3

Are you a musician? Because that is how the musician I know gets the piano to talk; I think the proper expression is that 'their soul is in their fingertips' - a clever idea to express Draco's tortured soul in music.
I fought shy of reading this one, in case it might be shippy (and I have read some terrible Draco/Luna romances, believe me!) but met a beautiful melody.

Awwww this was lovely, very well written and made me feel very wistful imagining the scene. Keep up the good work.

Sorry for my late review, but anyway I'm here now.
One of the few Draco&Luna's decents stories. Their interaction is very nice. The environment is pretty melancholic, but also warm.
Congradulations for your story.

Absolutely beautiful :)

Ive never ever thought of anyone in HP playing an instrument and i must say that i think this suits them well. Thank you for reviewing my story and the constructive criticism, reading back my story i do agree that comparing James to a lollipop is rather daft but at the time i couldn't think of anything else, if im ever left with nothing to do i'll try and figure out how to edit it and i'll sort it.

This one created a sound picture in my mind with Draco's music sounding like the more dramatic side of Rachmaninov ("...Don't you love those big fat chords." Shine) or Liszt's Totentanz [Dance of Death]. I imagine Luna would sound somewhere between Beethoven and Paganini; by turns dramatic and soothing. I loved it.
