What if Luna responded differently to Harry during their conversation before the leaving feast? AU set near the end of OoTP. Harry/Luna
- i love this story so far and yea that luna is a main character! glad minerva finally got her head out of her ass; what until dumbles finds out that his plans have been foiled evil smirk and nice change of pace to give moody a sense of humor. i found him to be very likable this time around.
Author's responseI like Luna. I always got a little twinge when I read her in JKR's canon, especally a couple of scenes in DH.
I like Minerva a lot, and in fics she's usually portrayed very kindly. Yet in canon, she dropped the ball a few times - not necessarily badly or intentionally, but I think enough that a hurting, grieving teenage Harry would lash out.
As for Dumbles.. let's just wait and see. I'm sure he must be getting a little frantic at not hearing back from his order members for so long...
I think Moody tends to come across a little one sided in fanfics, as though having him yell CONSTANT VIGILENCE and drink from a hip flask is his only part to play. Well, I'm going to try to add a little more to his (and other's) characters if I can - hopefuly without making them seem too OOC. I reckon Moody would get a kick out of people practicing is catchphrase, so that wsn't too hard to add.
- This is agreat story, areyou planning to make it Harry/Luna/Hermione,because that is the way it looks to be going
Author's responseWell, that certainly wasn't the intention when I started, and I don't know how the story is going to play out. I suppose I'm tending towards just Harry/Luna, but mostly that's due to trying to keep my story 'real'. Whatever else happens, I can't see myself inflicting Ron on her as a ship. Although I'm painting his good side so far, there's still some inner 'gitness' just waiting to burst out. Hopefully he won't let it out, but I know it's there.. :)
I did start a poll on my new yahoo group (Thoughts_of_Pudding), so if anyone has an opinion they're welcome to vote, or post a message about it.
- I... what to say...
Great fic, love the characterizations and sooo looking forward to the reaction from the manipulative one.
Looking forward to seeing where this goes.
Author's responseI'm looking forward to it too! I'm not completely sure what it's going to be until the characters start talking.
I'm enjoying working with the characterisations so far, and the story is writing itself. As for where it goes.. I've got a vague idea.
I think the real tricky part (for me at least) is what's going to happen when they eventually start running into Tom and/or his DE's.
Really enjoying story so far. Have always liked Luna and some of the most interesting fics I've read have been H/L. Looking forward to reading more.
Author's responseHey, good timing. I think this review arrived just as I was finishing off chapter 8.
Sadly, no Harry or Luna this chapter either, but next chapter for sure.. probably..
- I had to stop reading and say how much I liked Hermione's reaction to hearing Harry had to defeat Voldemort. Most fics I've read have Hermione just brushing it off and saying she isn't suprised. I really liked her reaction. Anyways, I off to read more now.
