I LOVE THIS STORY! i haven't read all of your stories but the ones i have read, i love!
this one's hiliarious! i love how Luna tricked Harry and your own account of the date in Madam Puddifoot's!
Author's Response: Thank you! Cho might not really be that bad, but I enjoy thinking she is, LOL. Harry does seem the type who would have to be manouevered into romance by a girl, doesn't he? ^_^
thats cute!!! never really liked the ship but this is a good story
Author's Response: Thank you for reading a pairing you don't usually- made my day! ^_^
Very cute! And very well written. I really like the spin on things, and the little deception by Luna. It's not something one would normally she would do, but it works out well in the end. I'm glad you wrote it, and that I happened upon it. Bravo!
Author's Response: I agree absolutely that it was 'a crime of opportunity', Luna's deception of Harry, not premeditated, LOL. Shows she can be bold enough for a Gryffindor, though, and I'm so glad you enjoyed it! ^_^
That is soo sweet i love it!! This is the first Harry+Luna I've encountered and it's totally believeable. You could really make this into another story, it has really good potential ! btw: i liked the first part it really elaborated the story that was uncannily like JKR. 10/10
Author's Response: If only JKR had made Harry continue to see Luna in a different light, the way he did at the end of OotP! When he started cringing and squirming with pity in HBP, it made me really upset, until I remembered....he is a teenaged boy, and they're fickle creatures, poor things, LOL. So glad you liked it! Thanks!
That's really good! -_^ You shold really write a sequle. (sorry i think tha's misspeled)I love Harry/Luna ships!
Author's Response: Spelling, schmelling, who cares about petty details when lovely reviews are given? :D Not me. Thanks for the compliment and for wanting more! ^_^
bravo! it's great to see scenes 'rewrote' from another chara's pov... and i love harry's decriptions of the cho kiss! and the whole second half with luna was bloody brilliant! i could so see luna tricking him! and the kissing! *fanning self* oh, and i rate in chocolate frogs. ^-~
Author's Response: Mmmm....chocolate frogs....much tastier than stars, LOL! I'm so glad you could "see" it and you enjoyed the kissing. Harry needs a good snog- from the right girl, heh. Thanks!
I really like this story, Luna is so evil!! Yet so smart...I should really try that...hmm...oh well. I really love how you find out she played a trick on him, and you get tot here Cho's version of what happned in Madam Puddifoot's Shop. It's a nice twist. I will readf the other chapeters later! Awesome Job. Tinka Blinka
Author's Response: I prefer to call her clever, lol. A Ravenclaw should be able to think up such a strategm to get her man, lol. Glad you liked Cho's viewpoint. She was good for a snicker! Thanks! ^_^
Great! You portrayed Cho very well in this, and I liked the bit of Harry/Luna. Your descriptions are just lovely, and this was all very realistic. It's nice to read something where someone can really put a spin on things. I didn't really think that Harry/Luna was convincing, but you kind of gave me new insight into it. yeah, the saving people thing from hArry was funny. Typical, in a humourous kind of way (for me anyway). Good job! 9/10!
Author's Response: It was all about Cho, wasn't it? Did she even like Harry, or did she just want the "details" about Cedric, like if he'd declared everlasting devotion to her beauty with his dying breath. To bring it up on Valentine's Day, too! It was a lot of fun, writing her, and Luna using Harry's heroic tendencies to her advantage. I say if reality is depressing, give it a spin! ^_^ Glass half full and all that. Thanks!
I enjoyed this very much! I'm a fan of Harry/Luna, so it was nice to see a refreshing take on it. I thought you did an excellent job with Cho. She seemed very emotional at times and self-absorbed, and also flaky. Which is pretty much exactly how I see her! I was proud to see Luna taking things into her own hands! I would never have expected her to be so sneaky, since she's usually very direct. And for her to capitalize on Harry's 'saving people' thing! Wow! I'm sorry Snape interrupted them, but I suppose it had to happen! And I'm even more glad that Luna's not sorry! My only suggestion is that you mention in the summary that it is AU, because we can be pretty sure this didn't happen in canon. Otherwise, excellent!
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it! Since Harry/Luna is an alternate pairing, every story that has them in a romantic situation is AU, to be literal. The dread letters have a connontation that a writer changed what happened in canon drastically, though, and since I kept to the book's account of the Valentine's date, prior kiss, and Skeeter meeting, just gave my fictional account of thoughts, conversations, and the scene with Luna afterwards, I didn't want to prejudice potential readers. I did double check my summary after your review, and added a bold emphasis to the sentence.....Humour and Romance in a story that started with canon and went What if? so thanks for the feedback! ^_^
A good story! i did not believe harry and luna were even possible in the remotest way until i read your fic.Ok as usual my review is split what i liked- Everything. A good story. Also i like the fact that you began with cho's pint of viw. A good original version of a pairing i did not beleive possible what i did not like- nothing. I liked yuour whole story Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Awwww....thanks so much! I thought OotP, at the end, was very much nudging readers into thinking Harry/Luna. She does understand what he's been through. Unless Jo has some 'and after Voldemort was defeated Harry and Ginny married and lived Weasley ever after' ending, fanfiction writers can continue to hope, lol. ^_^
A very interesting story. Very 'twisty'. I liked the way it got out that Luna was only acting. And Harry with his tendency to 'save people'. You could always rely on that. Luna is the best. I also liked that you let us on what Cho was thinking. Good job.
Author's Response: Thank you! I don't know why Jo went from strongly hinting Harry/Luna at the end of OotP (she was the only one he could talk to about Sirius, she made him feel better) to having him be squirmy embarrassed to be around her and out of the blue rivited to the way Ginny's hair was "dancing" (conga, samba, disco?) but I still hope the HBP text influenced Harry in a similar manner to Riddle's diary, and he won't turn out to be a silly boy, after all, sigh.
Woohoo! I never would have thoght Luna had it in her--false pretenses, indeed... You write her as quite forward, Slytherin-ish, almost...but I can also see that behavior meshing with her bluntness and straightforwardness. The ending ("I'm not sorry") was deliciously snarky, but still very Luna--great!
Maybe I'm just a huge Snape fan, but I love the fact that you didn't even have to mention his name for us to all know precisely who you meant there! How fitting for him to be the one to spoil Harry's first decent kiss.
Cho was very in-character (in my opinion), eyeballing pretty dress robes and musing about the other guys she could be with instead....so rude of her! A fun interpretation of Potty/Loony--thanks for a good read :)
Author's Response: If I didn't heart you for the fab review, I'd do it for being a huge Snape fan! He's a great character, and I hope Jo doesn't vindicate him a la Darth Vader, that she has Harry find out that people can be snarky and flawed, yet honourable, and not "only nice people are good". Eh, off the topic, heh, but thanks again for a good review!
yay! i loved it!
Author's Response: Cool! ^_^ (couldn't resist, lol) Thanks so much!
I liked it, but I thought Luna was slightly OOC. The ending was good "No, because I'm not sorry at all." I liked that part. I like how you did Cho and Harry's feelings in Madam Puddifoot's too.
Author's Response: I love your name! ^_^ I wanted to do a 'what if?' story. What if Luna had taken a chance. Being a Ravenclaw, she's certainly clever enough to think of a way to get Harry alone, even if in canon I don't think Jo will ever let her be bold romantically- although a girl who will wear a lion's head for a hat and sees thestrals should be up to the task! Thanks for the feedback!
Well the end was kinda confusing, but still adorably fluffy. GOod job! *goes to read other stories by YOU*
Author's Response: Thank you for wanting to read other stories! I went back and edited the last line to add the English translation.....“Amor vincit omnia...Love conquers all...” (I hope that ends the confusion! ^_^
It's been a while since I've read anything so light, sweet, and innocent as this story! Glad to see you posting here and Congratulations on being a featured writer on the main page! I'm proud of you!
Author's Response: Aren't you the sweetest person ever! Thanks so much! ^_^
