Luna's outrageous courage would earn her a spot in Gryffindor, did she want it. Of course, given that she actually looks before she leaps, she makes a better Ravenclaw.

We've all had questions about the house system and its sorting into houses according to character traits. Most of us have also read fics about the problems the blood-purists have due to marrying only their own kind. What I haven't yet seen is a story examining the social inbreeding that occurs when the two are combined. Just rambling a bit.

Luna would make a wise Mistress of Death. She has nothing left to lose and she always did love Harry, in her own way. She would have to, in order to take up such a burden.

Kokopelli replied:

Luna is a Peverel, and in part sees this as a duty - and in part sees this as a mercy - Harry never wanted the job, or the solitude that comes with the job. She also thinks that there are so many other options than black, even if it is easy to accessorize.  Luna sees the job as a tool that will let her make a difference.

This was a nice little moment in time here, and glad to see more of your writings. The character voices came through clearly, and do hope to see a follow up someday.

Greatly enjoyed this.

Excellent idea to send Lily back and have her 'influence' Dumbledore. After all, he's the cause of all the problems; Riddle is only one of the results.

Kokopelli replied:

I think in many ways Dumbledore influenced Riddle in the way he turned out.

Thanks for this very atmospheric glimpse of the downside of controlling death. Harry's tiredness came through very well, your Luna was pitch perfect, and using Lily Luna's service to get them together was inspired. It does leave me wondering whether Harry will return at some earlier point so he could affect positive change, knowing what happened previously.

Kokopelli replied:

That is so down-stream in an alternate time line that I can't see it from here.

Nice fragment. Little correction: Pretty sure Nightmares of Future Past is by Viridian, not JBern.

Kokopelli replied:

I do beta work for both - you'd think I have that down by now!

It's lovely to see this update -- thanks for another fun fragment! Thanks too for the Last Peverell recommendation. I'm about to spend a long weekend elsewhere, and those 260k+ words will be a welcome diversion from the boredom of an airplane.

Kokopelli replied:

Great story (Last Peverel) - needs a decent beta, but I'm enjoying it.

Oh, yeah, that's getting very interesting. I suspect Lily is going back to take over Ariana's position and alter a lot of things before they go too far. This definitely is going to get very interesting, however much you do have written.

Kokopelli replied:

Close, but no cigar - Lily is going back to 1925 and stepping into the shoes of Lycoris Black.

Evan Mayerle posted a comment on Thursday 5th March 2020 2:25pm

This is definitely a rpomising start and I look forward to seeing where you take this. I quite imagine that a Harry that's "clued in" could change a lot of things when sent back to his earlier self. Just how far back is an open question and I can see arguments for several different times in his early life. One variant I haven't seen much of is his returning to before October 31, 1981; there's a lot of capacity for change at that point but a lot of room for negative change.

Kokopelli replied:

Harry's not going back - neither is Luna (properly speaking).  Lily's going back.

Cool update. Sorry haven't reviewed until now. Since this site isn't that used that much by authors any more I only check it out every 3 or 4 months. Sorry. Great update. Awaiting more.

I know you're not really writing anymore, which is a loss for fanfic readers worldwide, as I think this is the beginning for a potentially fantastic story. Any time you want to add to it, I'll be here to read it!

Kokopelli replied:

Thanks for your kind words.  I've not stopped completely.  The first time I stopped writing it was because my children were all teens and needed more of my time than the fanfic world needed.  The children are grown and past college age, so that's no longer an issue.  I'm now spending a good amount of time caring for my aging mother-in-law who moved into an assisted living facility with dementia.  I still poke at this story - the next chapter is an installment with Susan and Hermione.

Yep, it's official. Someone gave "May you have an interesting life" to Harry as a birth blessing, the rotten (or stupid) sods. Harry's "saving people thing" is alive and well, no surprise. It's nice to see Ginny as more than just a hopeless fangirl, kudos on that.

I also am glad that Tim Joy continues to operate this site (thank you Mr. Joy), for fair use doctrine on copyrighted works, and fanfic authors like yourself who have used their hard-won free time to write stories that help make life more interesting.

Kokopelli replied:

I still hear from Tim from time to time, but he's stopped writing. I hope that's temporary. Thanks for the review.

Quite entertaining and very good in the 'AU split naturally grows as the tree grows' kind of way :)

Thanks!

Kokopelli replied:

The whole point of fan fiction is to deal with the "what if" rather than grinding away and retelling JKRs story.  I suppose it might be challenging to do the entire canon from another character's perspective, maybe Luna, Susan or Draco, but I'm not at all interested in that task.  Thanks for the review.

Thanks I needed that right now your always good fun to read.

Great to hear from you again. I enjoyed the chapter. I am also thankful that Tim still operates the site. Thanks for writing. W.
