Chaos theory; a nargle flaps its wings in China, and Luna responds differently to Harry during their conversation before the leaving feast.. AU starting near the end of OoTP. Harry/Luna/Hermione. N...
- Part poignant, part hilarious and 103% great. Poor Harry's confusion positively radiates off the page, and the hair thing was absolutely brilliant. It's the first time i see him go bald. Usually he gets the Haircut of Utter Desirability or just grow it out, but this was a first for me. Add in his description of apparating and you have a perfect comic situation.
Thanks for the wet wake-up call. All i can say is: Poor, poor Harry.
(#) Wonderbee31 2008-10-26 07:23:16 AMWell that was a cute moment there, and bald!Harry is interesting. Will really be curious as to how confused he'll be now, and how the two of them will get him to decide that he could be with both of them. More likely is Harry deciding to leave them both because he likes them, and he doesn't want to choose. Can't wait to see what goes down next.
- The pacing is spot on and the gradual development of their relationship (H/L/Hr) is good. Seems you want Tonks involved as close to Harry w/o being a lover, good as I think they click well as siblings here.
Lets see how thig oes as they figure out what to do about Dumbles, Voldy and his malitious Minions!

Looking forward to more.
(#) ubersnakelord 2008-10-26 12:59:54 PMGood story, good plot even only problem i see is that i am starting to get really bored with the Luna and Hermione situation, is it goind to be the major focus of the story? I mean all of it, you spent half of each chapter with the triangle
Author's responseHi ubersnakelord,
When I started writing this, I didn't know exactly where the story was going to go, and what it was going to be like. Originaly it was just a little drabble; 'What if Luna said somethign different at the end of Harry's fifth year?'
What I found was that I enjoyed exploring the interactions and motivations of the characters - trying to flesh them out from the cardboard cutouts I read in some other fics - while still trying to keep them as 'canon' as I can.
I guess this is a long way of saying, the relationship between the three is probably going to remain a fair focus of the story until things settle down. In story time, we're still only on about the 5th day, since I had the leaving feast occurring on Saturday night as I have no idea when canon set it.
(#) animemonster 2008-10-26 03:26:47 PMBald Harry ftw...I could see him looking something like a rather young, non-handicapped Charles Xavier with green eyes and a lightning bolt scar. Well at least Harry didn't splinch out anything important, and it doesn't seem as if the girls like him any less without his hair.
I'd love to see the animagus training that Minerva is going to do. Who's going to have what form? Who's going to have the ability to transform? I can't wait.
