Sorry, I meant "scenario" in a non-technical sense.

Yes, I was just curious since the transformation of the Star Bear into the Moon Bear (after Sedenya had ridden it, as the story goes...) and the transformation of the Hoar Heron (it flew to the Moon IIRC) seem to be two positive examples of effective Lunar conversion of immortal entities. Are there examples - printed, written, or simply as discussions of ideas - of failed conversions?

Apologies if I am being dense, but the impression I got from the things I'd read was that conversion/transformation did work on immortal entities regularly (even if not infallibly).
