    Don’t Blink

    Don’t Blink by Sugar Fey

    Summary: “When Luna was younger, her father told her to keep her eyes open.” Drabble, 668 Words.

    Why You Should Care: I feel this really gets across the sense of uselessness, of anxiety, and of tension that must have been what it was like to be at Hogwarts during Deathly Hallows, and Sugar Fey wraps it up nice and tightly with a chilling, precise ending that links right in with canon and Luna’s character beautifully.  It somehow manages to retain the feel of being stylized, even though it’s not really at all.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s Luna, but that doesn’t usually turn people off.  This one’s short and sweet, so it won’t take you much time to check it out.  There is a sort of preamble at the beginning that doesn’t really fit with the story, but I’m not sure it’s actually a part of a story.  I think it just might be a preamble.  To be fair, it’s unclear what the purpose of it is.

      Oh, lovely rec, though I quite honestly could have done without the preamble as well.
