Chapter: Tea and Mysteries

Luna has always been one of my favorite characters, simply because of her quirkiness. As with any time I am reading a great story, my muse set off "OOO! Possibilities!" pokes at me while reading this. I love it when you are reading something and you start thinking of all kinds of possibilities for expanding it, or part of it. That is one of the things that make a wonderful story...hence the creation of fan fiction. I didn't notice any glaring clerical errors (punctuation, grammar, etc), so that's another plus for your writing. I do hope that the next part of this is validated soon, because I would love to know the rest of the story. Keep writing!

Hello Raven Daniels,

*Phew* My Luna's acceptable (so far)! I must admit, writing the ethereally quirky Ravenclaw was more than a little nerve-wracking. She is such an iconic character! She comes out with such random, madcap phrases, but is so deeply perceptive (and deeply dippy - at times), that tackling her characterisation was daunting. But it really HAD to be Luna for this fic - there's no one better suited for AU mayhem than she is! I just hope I continue to deliver her as relatively true to character as is within my means (I don't normally write her, but will continue to try my best to do her justice for all the die-hard Luna fans, 'cos I love her too!).

And thanks for the nod towards punctuation and grammar :) It's by no means perfect, but I always (rabidly) scan my fics (oh, SO many times) to see if I've made any horrific errors, which leads to me getting so sick of the sight of my own words, that I invariably give up in frustration & post it 'warts and all'. Still, it's a relief to know this chapter was okay (grammatically). IMHO, nothing ruins enjoyment of a fic quicker than lack of attention to detail.

Thanks very much for R & R-ing,

Kara's Aunty :o)

"Why, you ought be dead, Professor Dumbledore." A great way to end the chapter. I had a feeling that was going to happen. I like the style in which you wrote this, and I like the concept (I'm guessing this is canon Luna in a non-canon world... or something to that effect?) and the way you present it. I also think that your characterizations of Luna and Dumbledore are both "spot-on." I really enjoyed reading this fic, and I look forward to future chapters, even if it does take a while.

Hello Virgil,

It was a rather dramatic ending, wasn't it?

Naughty me!

I'm both relieved and thrilled that you found the Dumbledore & Luna characterisations realistic! Dumbledore was hard enough to tackle without adding Luna's outrageous quirkiness, but the idea for the fic appealed so much that I really had to try and tackle it ...

 I appreciate your patience and thoughtfulness regarding the next chapter - I'm juggling so many fics right now that it's difficult finding the time to allocate time for each one (which is entirely my own fault) - but I will try not to keep you waiting too long!

Thanks for R & R-ing,

M :)
