Since her first appearance in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Luna Lovegood has been one of my favorite characters in the Harry Potter series. She’s super-smart but kind of spacey, and has a very unusual sense of style. I’d like to imagine that if I went to Hogwarts, Luna and I would be BFFs. She’s really rad! Unfortunately, a lot of her peers (*cough, cough* Ron!) were quick to judge her for her strangeness, but eventually everyone came to realize how special and brave she really is. So just in time for Luna’s birthday on February 13, we’re bringing you our top ten Luna Lovegood quotes.
- ”I’ve been able to see them ever since my first year here. Don’t worry. You’re just as sane as I am.” (Order of the Phoenix)
- “You can laugh! But people used to believe there were no such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or Crumple-Horned Snorkack!” (Order of the Phoenix)
- “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 very seriously. “It’s often infested with nargles.” (Order of the Phoenix)
- “I think they think I’m a bit odd, you know. Some people call me ‘Loony’ Lovegood, actually.” (Order of the Phoenix)
- “When you say ‘Sirius,’ are you talking about Stubby Boardman?” (Order of the Phoenix)
- “Oh, no, I’d love to go with you as friends! Nobody’s ever asked me to a party before, as a friend! Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I do mine too? (Half Blood Prince)
- “I don’t think you should be an Auror, Harry. The Aurors are a 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.” (Half Blood Prince)
- “I’ve never been to this part of the castle. Well, not awake. I sleepwalk, you see. That’s why I wear shoes to bed.” (Half Blood Prince)
- “Hello, Harry! Oh, I’ve interrupted a deep thought, haven’t I? I can see it growing smaller in your eyes.” (Deathly Hallows)
- “Oooh, look, a Blibbering Humdinger! (Deathly Hallows)
