Reviews for The Curious Case of Luna Lovegood
Mad Elf chapter 50 . 9/27/2020
An excellent fic, with lots of interesting takes on things. It is definitely worth the effort of struggling through the crushing torrent of typos, punctuation errors, and malapropisms that floods through practically every paragraph.

(Seriously. You are a good writer, but you *really* need to engage the services of a good editor to back you up.)

Dropping this, honestly the way Harry and the other teachers just let Corner run his mouth in this chapter is completely unbelievable. Just lazy writing, really.

I had gotten done reading this story and I absolutely loved it. Out of most of the HP fanfics I read, this one had one of the more unique approaches to storytelling. I especially loved how Luna was depicted. But honestly, my absolute favorite part of this story is the nargles.

Thank you for bringing this story into the world.

Okay the impression Harry did using Molly's voice was down right funny! Sorry but i couldn't help but laugh a little, at that part. Also i like the idea of Harry as the DADA teacher-well he was teaching the DA how to use spells against Voldermort!-and i enjoy the interaction between Harry and Luna especially when she is playing a song at the piano, i said this before about Luna and it needs to be said again never underestimate her, she's full of surprises in her own way and i never liked her being bullied because she was different heck all of us are different and unique in our own ways!

Okay first of all i love Luna! Sure she's unusual but that's a part of who she is, not to also mention insightful and she's one of the girls i was hoping Harry would wind up with, and not Ginevra! I believe she'd been better for Harry, and the friendship they had was unique as it was beautiful in it's own way!

I've been reading this story for about three days now during my free time but I think this is the chapter where I throw in the towel. As the story progressed further and further I find it more and more difficult to keep track of what is going on. Is it really happening? Is it some kind of vision? Is this more Nargles crazyness?
The part of the story I really enjoyed was the first part. I could imagine Harry as a teacher quite easily. In fact I think it suits him. He and Luna fell in love a bit abrubtly for my tastes but I really enjoyed the pairing and how you wrote it.
After the riot at Hogwarts though I began to feel that the story was feeling more like a chore to me than an entertaining read. There were a lot of things that bothered me. For example how Michael Corner ever got to be Head Boy and why he was never made to change his behaviour after all he did. How Harry has to my knowledge not once eaten at the Teachers Table struck me as a bit weird. The fact that Pandora seemed like a raving madwoman and should certainly never have been allowed anywhere near Luna or any other child for that matter. The way you portrayed her she came of as dangerous toward her own daughter. It also seemed to me that despite Harry being a pretty good dueler he managed to lose almost every fight he got into during the story. Seriously he seemed very weak. I don't know if you did that to portray his enemies as strong and dangerous but since you kept beating on Harry like that I started feeling like he was really weak. There is more but I'm sure you get my pointThat's not to say I found nothing goid about the story though. I really enjoyed how Luna and Harry came together and the work you must've put into the prophecies is quite amazing.
The reveal of the Earth Mother this chapter was quite interestint. I always suspected her identity so I really enjoyed it. i wonder how she managed to get her knight to do her bidding though.
All in all I did enjoy some of this story so thank you very much for that and for writing this for us all.
PS: I know you kust have heard this a thousand times but your fanfiction could benefit from a beta reader I think.

Dear Marvolo666,
I just finished reading The Curious Case of Luna Lovegood, the longest fanfiction story I have ever read to date. I spent countless hours the past few days just taking the time to read it and enjoy the extraordinary and phenomenal tale that you wove for so many people.
Normally, I don't read stories that are so high in drama and conflict, but I love Luna and I love the way that you portrayed her in this story. As the plot thickened, clouded, and erupted all around me, all I could think about was, "It may be dark now, but the dawn is going to be amazing!" Trying to hold on in the storm of your plot was challenging, but unforgettably rewarding.
The romance between Harry and Luna is very realistic and well-paced. Harry & Luna is my favorite couple in fanfiction, and I was happy to see how you took it seriously and gave it development, depth, and plenty of emotion.
The plot...the plot is one of the most in-depth ideas that I have ever seen. It kept getting deeper, more intricate, and more heart-wrenching. I think the part that saddened me the most was the chapter Hogwarts: A Requiem. It really felt like my home as well. I lost it when Albus and Minerva were talking. I loved learning the secret of magic and when Harry became who he needed to in order to save Luna. I loved the actions and dialogue between Hermione and Ragnok in the Ministry of Magic. Even the morality that you describe in the final chapters is thought-provoking and so very true. It really made me take a step back and see what I am doing with my own life and resolved to become to continue growing and really cherish the relationships with other people.
I honestly have no criticisms about a story this grandiose and well-structured. Rather, I have things I would have done differently, but aren't a problem. The more noticeable is trying to make it apparent when something is a flashback or happening in the present. I was able to sort it out, but it was occassionally very disorienting when I started reading it. However, it was very effective at putting me into the mindset of Luna, where structure would be overrated anyway.
The second thing that I would have changed is that I would not have made Luna and Harry cast that spell on themselves in Xanadu in the penultimate chapter. I understand why you did it, and it is a very poignant moment and point to make, but I wish they could have retained that information. After all, Luna overcomes the temptation that she would have to use it in problematic ways in the chapter right before. Even so, it gives their mentor a good line to go out on.
This story was extraordinary in how much it captivated me. I have not felt so thoroughlly engrossed in any story, electronic or print, for a very long time. You truly rekindled my passion in reading again, and I now have the free will to go and read some other fantastic tales (until I find more extraordinary fanfiction). However, I will definitely be coming back again in the future. There is more than one reason I favorite a story you know! :)
I wish you the best of luck on your original novel. If you put as much dedication and passion into it as you did into this work, I have no doubt you will succeed. After all, the secret is imagination, right? And yes, Marvolo666, I do believe in magic! :)
All the best wishes to you! May we meet again on other pages and with other stories to tell! :)
Thank you for an unforgettable journey!

About halfway through, the premise of this is kind of neat, but Luna feels really overdone. And the editing/proofreading seems to not have happened. If it did this would be one of my preferred H/L stories because a lot of thought was put into it.

Thank you for this lovely story. I finally got to finish it. *hands you scones *
Guest chapter 48 . 11/11/2017
Nice fic sadly spoiled by bad execution. Really felt for this Luna but too many out of character moments from main canon cast to hold water.
Guest chapter 22 . 10/21/2017
While a sweet story idea and lovely in parts this is extremely poorly written at times. I love all the HarryxLuna fics on here, AO3, AFF etc, but this lacks much of the humor warmth of many.
Hope your feeling better anyway.

Don't you find your reply a little bit ironic?
