Story Summary: Shortly after his sister’s death, Albus Dumbledore meets a mysterious young woman with a Time Turner, a secret mission, and a disarmingly comfortable relationship with death. Albus Dumbledore/Luna Lovegood, post DH.

Gioia’s Rec:
This is a very unique tale and an even more unique near-shipping, although calling it a romantic pairing requires quite a bit of squinting.  Written post-DH, this is a time-turner fic in which a young Albus, grieving his family’s recent tragedy, encounters Luna Lovegood on a mission so ambitious yet bizarre and seemingly flighty, it makes perfect sense as something Luna would’ve thought up.  Her encounters with Dumbledore in this fic offer some quality insight into both his character and hers, and left me feeling grieved for what a good influence she could’ve been on him if they really had met during that time in his life.  In fact, after reading this, I could much better understand why the actress, Evanna Lynch, expressed her interest in a Dumbledore/Luna ship, if not for the age difference.
