Review of chapter "part four: oral history" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Remus bit his lip, recognizing this – this way of apologizing. This odd sidestepping of an admission of shame and guilt through admitting to another actual truth. That in genuinely complementing Luna, Narcissa was trying to show that she was sorry for whatever part she had in her imprisonment in Malfoy Manor during the War.

--->Yeah, I can see that being the Black style of apologizing. Also, I love that Luna teaches the little ones. So perfect, with her imagination.

“Yeah,” Teddy said brightly squirming a bit and settling more comfortably in his arms, not understanding any of the undercurrents in the air. “Ms. Luna’s the best. She tells us stories before nap time - of twins that had fire for hair,” his eyes went wide for a second and his hair changed orange without him seeming to realize it. “A dog that was really a man. And a man made out of shadows and secrets. And- “ he continued between yawns, “-and a lady who could change into anyone she wanted but was always somehow herself.” He laid his head against Remus shoulder and his eyes fluttered shut.
-----> Okay, now, first we have the Weasley twins. Then Sirius. Shadows & secrets? Hmm...Snape? And the lady who could change but stayed herself? Argh! I can't figure those out!! Tell me, please :)

EDIT: Yes, that made mucho sense! Thank you:)
Comments from author:
In another fic series I have Luna as taking over for Ollivander as a wandmaker, which I found very fun and fitting for her. But I see owning a daycare as an oddly good fit too.

Okay, Teddy ramble. In order now: Twins that had fire fire for hair - Weasley twins. A dog that was really a man - Sirius. Shadows and secrets - Snape. Lady who could change into anything and stayed herself - Dora.

I was going slightly metaphorical with the last one. As in she could change her appearance but she never changed who she was. Tonks was always distinctly Tonks. Even though she was a metamorphagous.

Am I making any sense?

Review of chapter "part seven: settled" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Luna's quiet place = Devon Coven= PERFECT. Love, love loooooove.

“You can smell differences?” Willow asked calmly.--- That is so neat! Yay for a werewolf daddy, heehee ;)

There must have been something in his expression because she flushed slightly and bit her lip looking down… before glancing back up through her eyelashes at him, making his heart beat faster.--- Aw :)

Sirius and Dora would have approved.--- this. just. perfect. ending.

Ummmmm, so smolder, you REALLY outdid yourself. I mean, I expected a quickie one-shot but you really took it farther. Your writing is incredibly and I am immediately rec'ing this story. Plus, I so have been in the mood for a cute romance, and this fit :) I like how you made the relationship progress gradually and through Remus' POV.

Thank you SO much for sharing!
Comments from author:
I told you as soon as you gave me the prompt that it sounded like you knew me because - honestly, this was utterly in my wheel house. I already have an entire crossover Post-Wizarding War series that heavily features Luna. And this story is most likely spawning another since my brain has a tendency to obsess. *laughs*

I am so so glad you liked it though. I was really hesitant to note you but in the end I figured - hey, what the hell. *snorts*

Thank you so much for your kind words and really taking the time to go through and pick out parts in each chapter that you liked in your reviews. I can't tell you how delighted it made me.

Review of chapter "part six: top hat wearing octopi" from (Recent Donor)Luna
He followed Luna’s slight, tilt of the head invitation inside – she never gave spoken invitations.
---nice! She's trained against vampires ;)

“She’s back in England again,” she stated.
--heehee. Sneaky Luna ;)

A simple unthinking gesture, but Rolf had gone still and stared at their joined hands – his eyes distant and his finger stroking over Luna’s knuckles with something close to reverence.
--Awwww :)

she was there wearing a brightly rainbow-colored patchwork skirt in quiet defiance to the other somber colored clothing surrounding her
--LOVE this. So Luna

So cute, her and Rolf's story :D
Comments from author:
I wanted to try to pull in the canon of her relationship with Rolf and not make him a bad guy. The arch of their relationship seemed to flow really naturally as I was writing.

And I'm delighted that I kept Luna in a characterization that seemed right to you. I really adore her - she's my absolute favorite of the Harry Potter verse.

Review of chapter "part three: reciprocating" from (Recent Donor)Luna
He nodded feeling a bit stunned but she wasn’t done talking. She flushed slightly looking down at her tea again. “It’s actually what made me feel so comfortable around you - the familiarity of the wolf under your skin. My first boyfriend - Oz - was right there when I was just starting magic.” A fond smile crept across her face, “He was always a calming influence on me. It seems to be a trait shared by a lot of werewolves,” she commented looking up at him shyly.

---->that makes sense

And I love Sirius and Dora mocking him, in his mind ;) heehee
Comments from author:
I know I'm in the minority, but I was always very fond of Willow and Oz's relationship - especially early on. Their was something sweet and accepting about it. On both sides. And I really see that here too with Remus and Willow.

As for Sirius and Dora - well, Tonks might not have been a Black but she was close enough and I see them as having basically the exact same sense of humor. *laughs* Which, in turn is very similar to Narcissa and Andromeda.

Review of chapter "part two: spires" from (Recent Donor)Luna
AH! I loved how you got him into Oxford!

efff, I love this story so much already.
Comments from author:
Thank ya kindly, Luna. *curtsies*

It was really the only way I could see clearly in my head to do it other than messing around with the sort of magic that adjusts peoples memories and that always felt a bit icky to me, personally.

It's making me so happy that you're liking it though.

Review of chapter "part one: still" from (Recent Donor)Luna

With a shaking hand he gently ran a finger across Teddy’s hair. As if somehow sensing him in his sleep, the hair turned pink. Bright joyful pink.

Just like his mother.

Oh, fuck.

He pulled his right hand quickly away, balled into a fist against his mouth to try and muffle the noise of his sudden sobbing.

--> Holy S, this was good.

And the final line 'would have'

DAMN homie, this is so excellent writing. Full of emotion. I almost cried (I rarely cry, so 'almost' is a high compliment ;)

Comments from author:
He he. *bounces happily*

Which, I admit, is probably not the appropriate response when someone tells you they almost cried *laughs*, but I am so glad you're liking it.

Can't wait to see how you like the other bits.

Review of chapter "part seven: settled" from tydepul
nicely written! loved the slow development of feelings between Remus and Willow. Andromeda and Narcissa and Luna were nice additions.
Comments from author:
Oh, thank you. I especially tried to give it that feel, a slow and steady pacing. And I had lots of fun with Andromeda, Narcissa, and Luna's characters so I'm delighted you enjoyed them as well. :)

Thanks for taking the time to leave a little feedback. I really appreciate it.

Review of chapter "part seven: settled" from (Current Donor)Sithspit
Beautiful and satisfying; like a good meal after being hungry, it was delicious all the way through and at the end you can sit back with a smile and say, "Damn, that hit the spot!"
Comments from author:
And I really can't describe to you how satisfying it was for me to be able to plop down a full complete fic. *laughs* With so many of my stories in progress, it felt really nice to be able to switch this thing over to complete. I might add more to this universe - I have a Luna-centric bit that is connected that I will be posting soon - but this, this is done. And that felt really nice.

Sorry, that little rant really had very little to do with your comment, Sithspit. It just really is something that makes me happy. *laughs*

I do thank you though, for reading my little story and taking the time to leave such a lovely and truly evocative review.

Review of chapter "part seven: settled" from irialonso
This is a really beautiful story, I like that you save Remus and I like your portrait of Narcissa, Luna and Andromeda. The pairing is perfect and really sweet.
Comments from author:
I really do find myself intrigued by the Black sisters, so it was fun to have a chance to explore that a bit. And you know I always love writing Luna. *laughs*

I'm glad that the pairing between Remus and Willow feels right to you. I wanted that to feel natural - not to rush it like I sometimes feel in lots of otherwise really really well done fanfics. Just, at the beginning more two people coming together in a comforting manner as friend over recognized grief and acceptance of the other person for who the were. Then later when they see each other again (after they have had time away to grieve, settle, and miss/think about the other person), slowly something can start to happen.

...went on a bit. Sorry, there. Thanks for taking the time to review, irialonso. I appreciate the feedback.

Review of chapter "part seven: settled" from ChaosLady
This is really good. I'll start tracking it.
Comments from author:
Probably won't continue this story per se, but I will be posting a connected Luna-centric story soon....and I really don't know if I'll do anything else with this universe in the future.

Thanks for reviewing though, ChaosLady. I'm glad you enjoyed my little fic.

Review of chapter "part seven: settled" from VillageOrchid
I liked your insight into the Wizarding world and Luna's day care. I thought that Willow's side of the equation could have used a little more insight and dramatization. But then, for Willow this is the beginning of something, while for Remus it is a foregone conclusion.
Comments from author:
I agree that I rather sidelined Willow a bit. I'm not sure why, but it felt really natural to write from Remus' POV and through his story and world, Willow was simply one of many people. Someone who was becoming important to him, yes - but still just part of -his- progressing lifestory that I was writing.

I'm particularly happy that you enjoyed Luna's day care. I had perhaps too much fun with that - with Luna's character in general really, but I tend to do that (she's my favorite).

Thanks for the feedback, VillageOrchid. I really appreciate it.
