Fic: The Trick Step (Luna, Pansy, Draco)  
Title: The Trick Step
Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: PG
Word Count: 17,000
Characters: Luna Lovegood, Pansy Parkinson, Draco Malfoy, and implied combinations thereof, including OT3 (though any hinted romance is not the focus of the story, because honestly, this is mostly gen)
Summary: The notes kept coming, and Luna kept finding them. Luna encounters a mystery that needs solving – one that takes her beyond anything she ever imagined.
Author’s Notes: Written for journeystory. This is supposed to be set vaguely during the fourth book, just before the Triwizard stuff. When it comes to any underlying romantic feelings, there's kind of an unplanned emphasis on Pansy/Luna, possibly unrequited, because Pansy really, really wanted to like Luna, and I couldn't stop her. The connection between hope and feathers belongs to Emily Dickinson. I recently read Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, and ever since, I've been really intrigued by how the transition between childhood and adulthood, and coming into oneself, is shown in stories. So I think Pansy is somewhat reflecting that here, especially in her attraction to Luna.
