30 Day Harry Potter Challenge - Day 15: Who would be your best friends at hogwarts. (three only)
Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, and Dean Thomas. Or maybe Seamus. It depends if those three would actually get along or not. But I love Luna for her oddness, I think we’d compliment each other. I love Neville for his awkwardness (we’re so alike!) plus he’s tall, like me. And I don’t know what it is about Dean, but I just like him. Seriously, in every movie, whenever he shows up, my sister and I go “Dean!” He’s just always there, in like every scene, being awesome. And attractive. :)
30 Day Harry Potter Challenge - Day 12: Fave ship.
Ahh. This is a complicated answer. I’m tempted to say Harry/anyone but Ginny, because we are given absolutely no reason to like her, the relationship is completely shallow and unfounded, and I don’t really understand why he likes her. It’s just weird. BUT, that doesn’t really count as my ship, I just needed to say that.
My real favorite ship, and I’m sorry to all the Neville/Luna shippers, is: Luna/Nobody.
Why? you ask? Well.
1) Luna and Neville could never work. They’re friends, but Neville ends up with Hannah Abbott, and I think they make a nice pair. That’s the kind of person Neville is, so that’s the kind of person Neville needs.
2) I really like the IDEA of Luna/Harry, honestly I do. She makes him happy, in a weird sort of confusing way, which comes across to me as rather sweet. She’s always there for him, when he needs her. See earlier post about Luna for a sweet Harry/Luna moment.
But anyway, I don’t ship Luna/Harry because I know it wouldn’t work. He under-appreciates her, they’re completely different, and so forth. Which brings me to…
3) Luna is such a unique spirit, that I can’t ever imagine there being another person quite like her enough to make her happy. She’s never had real friends before DA, and afterwards when she did, she was content to keep it like that. To have friends. She’s so young in her nature, and yet so mature. She knows what will make her happy, and she’s found it. All she needs is friends. I can’t ever see her getting married, unless some kind of Quibbler-reading Dirigible Plum growing wizard appeared somewhere on the face of the earth. Or maybe she’d marry a muggle. I could maybe see that.
Either way, my favorite ship is still Luna/Nobody. It’s like I have this vision of who Luna is, and who Luna is would never settle down with somebody. I don’t know.
30 Day Harry Potter Challenge - Day 7: Fave female character and why.
Luna Lovegood! She is the most original, fearless, creative character in the whole series. Everything she does just makes me happy inside, makes me laugh, or sometimes just simply marvel at the strangeness.
She leaves the other characters with the same kind of feeling of happiness, too. Possibly my favorite part in the entire 7th book (which was left out of the movie-boooo) is right after Harry’s just seen all these dead bodies of his friends, and dementors are closing in on him and Ron, Hermione, Seamus, Ernie, and Luna, and he can’t make a patronus. He doesn’t have a happy thought left. And Luna comes up to him, and the scene goes as thus:
"That’s right," said Luna encouragingly, as if they were back in the Room of Requirement and this was simply spell practice for the D.A. "That’s right, Harry… come on, think of something happy…"
"Something happy?" he said, his voice cracked.
"We’re all still here," she whispered, "we’re still fighting. Come on, now…"
And then he can do it, because of Luna. She may say all the wrong things so many times, but when it counts, she said the right things. She lifts people up. She’s the unsung hero. She’s “Loony”, but that’s part of the reason why she’s wonderful.
"I can see them to, you know. You’re just as sane as I am."
