Review of chapter "Only She Can Bear" from SongBirdie
I loved this. Luna is my favorite Harry Potter character, and you wrote a clear, lyrical, intense story. Bravo! :D

Review of chapter "Only She Can Bear" from (Current Donor)Katrina
Thank you for sharing this story. I felt lost for Luna, hoped she'd make it to her friends, and was glad she did. I think the headmaster could have handled anything she brought his way, but it's funny how student's think, sometimes. Nicely done.

So nice how I didn't get this one. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing. I'm terribly glad you enjoyed it, I had a surprising amount of fun writing it considering the subject matter.

Review of chapter "Only She Can Bear" from SlowMercury
I like this story quite a bit -- now I wonder how it's changing the Potterverse. If the Golden Trio, Neville and Ginny are wrapped up in trying to keep Slayer!Luna alive, they've got a whole different set of fish to fry than the canon Half Blood Price group. For one thing, Harry wouldn't have enough time to stalk Draco and ace Potions, and I imagine all five of them will be improving their medical magic in leaps and bounds.

I loved some of your ideas -- how Luna couldn't believe she alone was important enough to get Giles from Rome to England (I bet she's wrong about not being the only Slayer around; Giles almost certainly would have told her if she had backup closer at hand); how even bleeding to death, Luna has that characteristic dreamy quality, and considers the kindnesses of Neville and Harry compared to Ron's lack of tact (and how it could be used as a weapon); I like how Luna is comforted by being considered a provisional member of the centaur herd.

I do hope you continue this, although I know that it is fully complete as a standalone. Very nice work.

Thank you so much! I loved writing it.

You bring up stuff I didn't actually consider. In this 'verse, Harry could excel at both Potions and medi-magic in his own right, while only using the Half-Blood Prince's book as a guide rather than becoming as obsessed about everything as he did.

And Hermione will be too busy helping him to ignore or dismiss anything he thinks about, let alone moon over Ron. And, here, Ginny's actually a part of the group, so there's a reason for Harry to get to know her well enough to begin to have feelings for her.

And last, but certainly not least, Neville will become even more of a great wizard in his own right without the spectre of the Death Eaters clouding everything.

So many changes and all of them worthwhile and good, thank you so much!

Review of chapter "Only She Can Bear" from periskyye
I really, really liked this one. I think you captured the Luna from the books exactly how she would be as a Slayer. Thanks for writing!
Comments from author:
Thank you so much. You know, it's funny. For all that Luna in the books is the personality I think of most, Luna in the movies affects my characterization of her just as much. I love both so very dearly.
