    Platform Nine and Five-Sixteenths

    Platform Nine and Five-Sixteenths by MTFierce

    Summary: “Exceptionally Brilliant” Oneshot, 1,800 Words.

    Why You Should Care: An “Exceptionally Brilliant”, “Rather Creative” character piece on Luna that occasionally “Needs Direction”.  For people who never quite understood why Luna is in Ravenclaw, I think you’ll find quite some of that answer here.  I love the shifting focus of this piece, the way it free-flow follows thoughts and threads until they connect with other interesting ideas.  The form of this is very true to Luna’s character, I think, and I particularly enjoyed Luna’s thoughts on language and the importance of using the right word to capture the right idea.  This fic wanders and meanders, but in a wonderful Luna-type way.

    Why You Might Not Care: This fic wanders and meanders.  The punctuation and sentence composition is sometimes needlessly excessive and occasionally confusing.  Despite containing a lot of variation, the use of sentences that are either unusually choppy or complex inhibits the flow of this piece and sometimes feels distinctly un-Luna.  It also contains not-quite subtle hints of Neville/Ginny and Harry/Luna.
