    Hal-Con Update

    So I just got out of the panel hosted by the NSBronies group and I got to admit that it was pretty good. The only downside being how much time that they had been given, though at the end I went up and shook hands with them and talked for a minute or two. Great job guys!

    A song to go with Celestia's Story Part Four

    A reviewer over on FF.Net pointed out that this song was playing in his head while he was reading the new chapter. After listening to it, I could not help but feel that it really does fit this chapter, but also the war between Celestia and the nobles. I just had to share it.

    Said war was only the start of what I like to call the "Century of Strife" which also included the civil unrest and uprisings/rebellions of the non-noble classes. Which were due to the aftershocks from Luna's fall and banishment as well as the war between Celestia and the nobles.

    Looking forward to this year's Hal-Con

    Another year, another chance to go to Hal-Con! Hopefully this year though they won't close down early because they fit too many people into the building (this year shouldn't have that problem though, not least because they're using all the levels of the convention center). Personally, I'm hoping to go to the Nova Scotia Bronies meeting and meeting some of them in person. Not to mention getting a lot of swag there! So any Nova Scotian Bronies that here this, I hope to see you there!

    Heading to Hal-Con

    So, I'll be heading to Hal-Con this weekend and I am pretty excited as I finally managed to get this weekend off. I want to see the FiM panel especially. I would like to know what other events for FiM might be happening around the Con though. Hopefully I'll be grabbing some nice swag there.

    Widening the Lens

    Now, people have been asking me about when I am going to post a new chapter of Widening the Lens. Now I am happy to report that I am putting together the new chapter and it should be up in the next two weeks if everything works out as I am hoping. On that bit, we'll be seeing things get a bit closer to the events at Hippocampus being resolved.

Harry Potter was a lonely boy who one day wished for a friend. Luna, trapped on the moon, wished for the same. And so their wishes are granted. How will the two deal with each other? And what about Nightmare Moon? Needless to say, their lives are going to change in both expected and unexpected ways...

I like this story.

Not bad, can't wait to see more:twilightsmile:

Love it, very well written.

Must have more!

And now we get to the good parts!

#6 · 154w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 5 ·

I was so prepared to not like this.  I mean, really.  I didn't want to.  But now I've looked at it, and it's utterly charming, and I want more.  I'll be tracking.

#7 · 154w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 5 ·

I am Loving this Story, this story is getting tracked.

#8 · 154w, 6d ago · 2 · · Chapter 5 ·

When I started reading I had a few mixed feelings about this, but I'm glad to say that this was acctually pretty good.  If you keep writing, I will keep reading.

*SPOILERS*

Please keep writing, I really want to see peoples reaction when they find out he can already do magic without a wand, and I REALLY want to see Draco scared s**tless by little Nightmare.

#9 · 154w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 5 ·

Oh my goodness. All of my money.

I loved the original series, but this... THIS! This is fantastic! The characterization, the dialogue... and that one thing they never touched upon in the actual books: how Harry managed to do all those things in the first book before he got his wand. They always say that the wand is what makes the wizard/witch able to preform magic, yet Harry could do that without one. WHY DID THEY NOT NOTICE THIS. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A PLOT POINT, but now... Now it shall be EXPLORED!!

With 20% more pony, of course.

-=SPOILER=-

Do I see a hint that this young human boy is influencing Nightmare in a positive way? That perhaps now that she has someone she cares about, selfishly or not, she might be "redeemed?" Perhaps leading to an alternate ponyverse where the elements were not needed on that night? Where twilight never went on her adventure and became good friends with the others? Where she stayed secluded and anti-social?

... this leaves me conflicted. on one ho-HAND I wish to see Nightmare redeemed, on the other, I want Twilight to have friends... There can be only one, and it saddens me.

-=END SPOILER=-

NONE THE LESS! Carry on, good sir or madam. I TRACK AND 5-STAR THIS WITH ALL MY BEING!

I wonder how Harry, Luna, and Nightmare will react when they find out that unicorns do exist in his world, I'm not sure how they'll react to them giving hairs for wand cores but oh ho ho will they have a FIT when they find out what's going on in the forbiddon forest.

GREATEST CROSSOVER EVAH

Great story man, I absolutely love it, I never thought I'd fall in love with a Harry Potter/Friendship is Magi crossover but this story proves anything is possible.

Love Nightmare Moon in the doll, reminds me of some of my fave anime's right there :pinkiehappy: I am really looking forward to chapter 7 and beyond.:heart:

I was thinking the same thing,

Dumbledore knows of nightmare moon and maybe even her history...

But YAY! New chapter! :yay:

#25 · 152w, 8h ago · · · Chapter 6 ·

I wonder why the connection with his wand feels distant? Could it have something to do with his exposure to Luna and her teaching him magic?

#26 · 151w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Woah.. Luna and Harry have more in common than I thought o_o;;

#27 · 151w, 3d ago · 3 · · Chapter 6 ·

Lol, I can see some foalish Sytherin, Namely Draco disarm Harry in a wizard duel only to see Harry using his hands for magic :rainbowlaugh:. Can't wait for that :pinkiehappy:

#28 · 150w, 5d ago · 4 · · Chapter 7 ·

is it just me or is harry starting to act more like a ravenclaw then a gryffindor:moustache: oh but i luv how this is going keep up the good work.

ps. nightmare moon is starting to become good that's just adorable

#29 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 7 ·

To be frank Harry should count himself lucky that none of the wisarding world are too observent. If the Gobblins can pick up on his inneractions with Luna others can aswell yet noone else seems to yet by all rights Bill should have. Nightmare can hide in plain sight given her form of inneracting with the world, though granted she should be more carefull given that even the toyshop owner said that living toys with her level of inteligence are quite the rarity.

That all said I like where this fic is heading though I have to wonder just how big the ripple effects will be here. Dung is for the time being out of commision for Dumbledore, Harry knows a deal more about magic in geniral, and may be less easily swayed to the wisarding worlds ways given that Luna and Nightmare came to him befor hand. Also something tells me that whatever plans Nightmare has for that crystal can't be enitirly benighne.

#30 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 7 ·

An interesting read to be sure, not too many spelling errors, tracking for now :twilightsmile:

#32 · 150w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 7 ·

Loved this Chapter.

I want to compliment on your amazing character portrayal, it feels like I'm reading about people and not fictional characters. The interactions, emotional and character development and the new way of viewing the Magical World are what sets this story apart from so many other crossover stories.

This chapter was just pitch perfect and I eagerly look forward to the next chapter, I really hope this fic goes on for a long time. It's something I really enjoy reading and re-reading.:heart:

#38 · 147w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 8 ·

Excellent chapter! And now we're heading for Hogwarts!:yay:

#39 · 147w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 8 ·

Man I loved this chapter. There are a few times when you put her when it should be she but other than that this chapter was perfect. Like this story is perfect :heart:.

If there is one thing I enjoy it's the sensibility you have given Luna. She is reasonable, diplomatic about meat eating, a good teacher and actually teaches things Harry Potter will need to know, like Mundane/Muggle studies. I always did wonder how Wizards filled out their Tax forms/tax returns.

Nightmare although not featuring as prominently as Luna is still full of personality and amusing little quirks you are adding over time. I enjoy reading every chapter of this story and when you put something into your story, you don't let it fall by the wayside. Like the Magical Trunk, I was a teensy bit worried you'd go and forget to mention it again. But I am happy to see I was wrong and pleasantly surprised by it.

Harry continues to evolve, moulded by Luna and Nightmare's friendship, I can easily imagine how very different the events of book one might play out. I hope this story goes on through all the books. Granted this story would probably be well over a 100 chapters long. But at the current pace of updates and new chapters, and the level of detail and story put into each new chapter. I am very happy to wait for new chapters since they're a joy to read. This crossover is just so well executed I want to rant and rave about it's awesomeness into the night.

Keep up the good work leferts :heart:

#40 · 147w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 8 ·

I'm looking forward to seeing how this different Harry interacts (or doesn't) with the Hogwarts crowd.

#41 · 147w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 8 ·

I don't usually read Harry Potter fanfiction. But when I do, it's this story.

#42 · 147w, 1d ago · · · Chapter 8 ·

>>53953 "on one ho-HAND I wish to see Nightmare redeemed, on the other, I want Twilight to have friends... There can be only one, and it saddens me."

Why should it be only one there?

Celestia doesn't know she's being redeemed now.

So she'll send Twilight to Ponyville anyway.

Luna is best pony.......Harry Potter is best wizard......This story is...........AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRR

The term GENIUS doesn't describe how smartly this is written. A very, very enjoyable story. I'm loving every single update. A pleasure to read, and an enjoyable story overall. :twilightsmile:

#49 · 144w, 6d ago · 3 · · Chapter 9 ·

A Harry Potter fic focusing on Tonks while in school? As a possible Harry mentor? And semipowerful!Harry?

Heck, this story would be great even without the ponies.

Nox
#50 · 144w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 9 ·

I'm liking this so far, but...I just have to address my few small fears here.

This isn't going to be another Harry Potter fic where Dumbledore is seen as a manipulative controlling jerk and gets his plans shoved in his face because of it, or Ron a dumb, narrow-minded kid who never makes friends with Harry, is it?

I know you haven't really indicated these things YET, but...with Nightmares response to  Dumbledore's machinations in Harries life, and how Ron has been shoved to the side a little bit, I feel I must ask these things NOW before they actually would show up if they ever did, to potentially nip this in the bud. I've enjoyed the whole story so far, please don't ruin it with those overdone bits of character bashing.
