    Tea With The Dark Lord

    Tea with the Dark Lord by Cranberry_Crash

    Summary: Luna Lovegood is good at telling stories. Oneshot, 1,667 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Luna is already a difficult character to write, but lowering her into the middle of a war and showing the appropriate effects without changing who she is completely — that is a task for only the best of authors. Cranberry_crash does an excellent job, and the supporting characters are executed just as well, coming across powerfully even in cameos of a line or two. This is a delightful read that maintains Luna’s airy quality while giving her the subtle edge that even she would obtain in such times, and ultimately brings you hope and a smile — exactly as Luna would have wanted.

    Why You Might Not Care: The scene for which the piece is named has a surreal quality that makes you wonder if the characters actually would have done this; but then, with a character such as Luna, perhaps such a quality is exactly what it should have. It’s an excellent work, and why are you still reading this rec? You could be absorbing good fic.

      It is rather wonderful. It makes me want to go and read the seventh book again, and leaves a feeling of nostalgia in my stomach. I think I’m going to go reread that scene where Harry defeats the Dark Lord. =) Thank you for this rec!
