Luna Lovegood Character Connection

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jen at The Introverted Reader.

Well y’all, with less than a month to go until the release of the final movie, I’ve pretty much got Harry Potter on the brain. Luna Lovegood is one of the best characters of the series – more than a little insane, always good for a laugh…but also sometimes very insightful.

Luna Lovegood

This week, I decided to just share some of my favorite Luna Lovegood quotes from the books…at the bottom there is a video of some of her scenes from the movies. Make sure and let me know what your favorite Luna moments are!

Luna Lovegood
“The Aurors are part of the Rotfang Conspiracy, I thought everyone knew that. They’re working from within to bring down the Ministry of Magic using a combination of Dark magic and gum disease.”
******************

“Mistletoe,” said Luna dreamily, pointing at a large clump of white berries placed almost over Harry’s head. He jumped out from under it. “Good thinking,” said Luna seriously. “It’s often infested with nargles.”

******************

“Don’t worry. You’re just as sane as I am.”

******************

“I enjoyed the meetings, too. It was like having friends.”

******************
Luna LovegoodLuna took a deep breath and then said, without so much as a preliminary hello: “I believe He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is back, and I believe you fought him and escaped from him.”

“Er — right,” said Harry awkwardly. Luna was wearing what looked like a pair of orange radishes for earrings, a fact that Parvati and Lavender seemed to have noticed, as they were both giggling and pointing at her earlobes.

“You can laugh!” Luna said, her voice rising, apparently under the impression that Parvati and Lavender were laughing at what she had said rather than what she was wearing.”But people used to believe there were no such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or the Crumple-Horned Snorkack!”

What are your favorite Luna Lovegood quotes?

    We're so with you on this! Luna was one of our favorite characters in the series. Isn't it funny how sometimes the "craziest" people are the ones with the most insight to what's important in this world?

    Luna's amazing! She's definitely my favorite more minor character in the series. Love the video with Luna clips, but I wish it had the scene with the thestrals. 🙂

    Ah, Luna. I really like her character in the book too. I'm so excited for the movie, but sad at the same time for the last.

    I love Luna, she's so adorable and spacey and I so want to be her friend just to be around to hear what comes out of her mouth at any given moment:)

    Haha! I must admit that Luna has grown on me with every re-read … the first time I read her, she just seemed to be a rather weird one.

    I love this post because I love Luna Lovegood! She is one of my favorite characters of all time! I love how she is spacey and kind of bizare. But, at the same time, she can say some really profound things. I wish she would have been in the Harry Potter series even more because she totally kicks butt!
