Best odd thing/ incident/ person from Harry Potter (Dumbledore's chamber pot incident, the mad knight etc.)
I absolutely adore Luna. She has this very amazing ability to just genuinely not give a flying f**k about what anyone thinks of her. She is loyal, true to herself and her friends, incredibly intelligent and funny. There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this character.
“Hello' said a vague and dreamy voice from behind them. Harry looked up: Luna Lovegood had drifted over from the Ravenclaw table. Many people were staring at her and few people openly laughing and pointing; she had managed to procure a hat shaped like a life-size lion's head, which was perched precariously on her head.
'I'm supporting Gryffindor' said Luna, pointing unnecessarily at her hat. "Look what it does...'
She reached up and tapped the hat with her wand. It opened its mouth wide and gave an extremely realistic roar that made everyone in the vicinity jump.
'It's good, isn't it?' said Luna happily. 'I wanted to have it chewing up a serpent to represent Slytherin, you know, but there wasn't time. Anyway...good luck, Ronald!”
|'You're just as sane as I am.'|
During my reading of the Harry Potter books I looked forward to the lines given to Luna. They were always insightful but in the most bizarre of ways! She is always open to giving out advice even if it always a little unbelievable. Luna is the only one that can initially sympathise with Harry upon seeing the thestrals and I just loved the way their relationship developed throughout Order of the Phoenix.
“I don't think you should be an Auror, Harry," said Luna unexpectedly. Everybody looked at her. "The Aurors are part of the Rotfang Conspiracy, I thought everyone knew that. They're working to bring down the Ministry of Magic from within using a mixture of dark magic and gum disease.”
