    Summary: Harry and Ginny resurrect Luna immmediately after her death and it's apparent their life will require some... adjustments (H/G/L implied).
    Link(s): First Part Second Part
    Author's Note: Written for the flamingnargle Not Quite Dead Yet challenge.

    This is one of the funniest one shots I've read lately. Luna is definitely in character. Near as I can tell it ISN'T H/G it is more H/L and L/G so I should be ok to post it here. Zombie love crackfic! I say 4/5, I would have liked more from this it's too short. What do yall think?

    Funny, but not all that funny. Well written, but a little strange. And way too short.
    3.8/5

    Yes it certainly is very short, but I think it is pretty sweet as well. If only for the fact that instead of wasting his time bringing back Sirius, Harry puts his necromantic powers to good use bringing back his girlfriend (and now deatheaters are good for something more than target practice!)

    4/5

    Cute. But too short. Some one-shots and drabbles are fine when this short, but there's too many interesting and compelling things introduced here to be this short and only scratch the surface. 3/5 seems too low, but 4/5 seems a little high. But Luna eating brains makes me round up.

    4/5

    That was exactly my reasoning. "Brains?"

    I found Luna funny, but not much else. Maybe if it was a little longer I would have liked it better because the general idea was funny, there just weren't a whole lot of moments that I found humorous.
    3/5

    O...K...

    Not BAD per say, but I dunno if I'd really call it good. Um, Decent for a drabble, and minorly funny.

    3/5
