| 30CK chapter 1 . 2/3/2012
I've read this a number of times, and it's a very strange ficlet. Every time I rediscover it and reread it, I walk away both unfulfilled and paradoxially satisfied. It's an okay story - really it is - but it's...strange. It seems more like a mismash of two different stories, really. On one hand, you have Luna's Boggart, and on a completely different tangeant, you have Harry doing his own thing and then being married to Luna and for some reason there's Tangoing Yhdaks. It just doesn't fit together.
And while I suppose you could make the argument with Luna being, well, Luna, something not quite fitting is rather fitting - and I would have to give you that point. But still, it seems like you were trying to go for two very different things inside one short-story-world.
I wish there were more Luna-boggart stories like this one (at least, the Boggart part of this one); her form is uniquely fascinating and absolutely fitting. Harry Potter fears the embodiment of Fear; Luna Lovegood fears that which brings about that Fear. The way you described it is wonderfully paradoxial, and both intriguing and disturbing.
There needs to be more Luna-boggart stories, and Luna-veratiserum stories. More Luna-centric stories in general, methinks. Perhaps I'm due to pump out a few...

This was pretty funny, and I do think that you captured Harry and Luna's adult selves quite well (although I think I remember reading somewhere that Harry was accepted into the Auror's office shortly after Riddle's demise, which makes sense, good PR for the Ministry having the Boy Who Lived working for them).
And I love Snorky, too. I could see Harry grudgingly allowing Luna to call him that, you can't exactly stop her, can you?

I love it... Luna as an adult is so believable!

This was an awesome little story & completely get Luna & Harry together both as teens & adults..that's why they are my favorite pair.
Very well done.
I'll add this to my favs & community.

I always pictured Luna's boggart would be something like death of imagination or no belief or something. Really interessting story

... xD Cliche? Srsly? /Where/ did you find this cliche, exactly?
I /really/ need to read more Luna fanfiction if this was cliche... Love it, Lol.

This is great! You write everyone In Character. Nothing as a bogart. Tangoing Yhadks as xes. Great idea!
Harry/Luna is a cool pairing. The quirky Ravenclaw and the Chosen Gryffindor.

That was an amazing story. Im a HUGE fan of HarryxLuna and I think you captured both aspects really well. Your a really great writer.
One qualm I had at first was that I wasnt sure I would like the story anymore when it suddenly changed to them as adults, but it was stil really good and they were still the same people, which was great :D

I'll admit some of Luna's comments confused me, but that was a bit expected. I like the explanation of her bogart/worst fear.
| All The Pretty Horses chapter 1 . 1/8/2009
That was really good. Luna has always kind of fascinated me and I like her a lot. They way you portrayed her as an adult was great.
