The girl beside the window looked up. She… gave off an aura of distinct dottiness. (OP10)

Luna Lovegood, by Lisa Villella

Luna watched them over her upside-down magazine, which was called The Quibbler. She did not seem to need to blink as much as normal humans. (OP10)

Moonchild, by Ani Bester

“I don’t know where she came from but I really like Luna – really fun to write. She’s slightly out of step in many ways but she’s the anti-Hermione. Hermione’s so logical and inflexible in so many ways and Luna is likely to believe ten impossible things before breakfast.”

–J.K. Rowling (June 2003)


Luna's Patronus, by Behindtheveil

“Well, my dad is very supportive of any anti-Ministry action!” said Luna Lovegood proudly…. “He’s always saying he’d believe anything of Fudge; I mean, the number of goblins Fudge has had assassinated! And of course he uses the Department of Mysteries to develop terrible poisons, which he secretly feeds to anybody who disagrees with him. And then there’s his Umgubular Slashkilter —” (OP18)

Rita stared at her. So did Harry. Luna, on the other hand, sang ‘Weasley is our King’ dreamily under her breath and stirred her drink with a cocktail onion on a stick. (OP25)

Loony Luna, by Mudblood428

“One of the ways in which I tried to show that Harry has done a lot of growing up — in ‘Phoenix,’ remember when Cho comes into the compartment, and he thinks, ‘I wish I could have been discovered sitting with better people,’ basically? He’s with Luna and Neville. So literally the identical thing happens in ‘Prince,’ and he’s with Luna and Neville again, but this time, he has grown up, and as far as he’s concerned he is with two of the coolest people on the train.”

–J.K. Rowling (July 2005)


Luna Lovegood, by Jeni Malament

“Oh… well…” she shrugged. “I think they think I’m a bit odd, you know. Some people call me ‘Loony’ Lovegood, actually.” (OP38)

Luna, by Dunland

(by Dunland)

Luna… walked away from [Harry] and, as he watched her go, he found that the terrible weight in his stomach seemed to have lessened slightly. (OP38)

Luna Lovegood, by lberghol

Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same: Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends… friends… friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna. (DH21)

Luna's Sunflower Dress, by Roby-boh

“I like this song,” said Luna, swaying in time to the waltzlike tune, and a few seconds later she stood up and glided onto the dance floor, where she revolved on the spot, quite alone, eyes closed and waving her arms. “She’s great, isn’t she?” said Ron admiringly. “Always good value.” (DH8)

Luna, by Chantelle

“Yes,” said Luna simply, “my mother. She was a quite extraordinary witch, you know, but she did like to experiment and one of her spells went rather badly wrong one day. I was nine.”
“I’m sorry,” Harry mumbled.
“Yes, it was rather horrible,” said Luna conversationally. “I still feel very sad about it sometimes. But I’ve still got Dad. And anyway, it’s not as though I’ll never see Mum again, is it?”

Luna Lovegood, by Heather Campbell

“Then she’ll be in Azkaban, I expect,” said Ron. “Whether she survives the place, though… Loads don’t…”

“She will,” said Harry…. “She’s tough, Luna, much tougher than you’d think. She’s probably teaching all the inmates about Wrackspurts and Nargles.” (DH22)

Luna, by Runcible

And then a silver hare, a boar, and fox soared past Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s heads: the dementors fell back before the creatures’ approach. Three more people had arrived out of the darkness to stand beside them, their wands outstretched, continuing to cast Patronuses: Luna, Ernie, and Seamus. “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….” (DH32)

Life, by gerre

(by gerre)

“[Luna] ended up marrying (rather later than Harry & co) a fellow naturalist and grandson of the great Newt Scamander (Rolf)!”

–J.K. Rowling (July 2007)


Luna and Family, by Cambryn

(by Cambryn)

“Luna… became a great naturalist, though I don’t know whether she ever found any Crumple-horned Snorkacks.”

–J.K. Rowling (October 2007)


Luna with Gryffindor Lion, by Felicia Cano

“It’s all right,” said a dreamy voice from beside Harry as Ron vanished into the coach’s dark interior. “You’re not going mad or anything…. You’re just as sane as I am.” (OP10)

    Oh my God, I cannot tell you how happy this page makes me! Luna is my absolute favorite character, bar none, and every time there’s a new character portrait up I was wishing it’d be hers. Thank you for this – it made me tear up, because there are some truly beautiful moments in the series with Luna, and you’ve highlighted them very well. And the artwork is beautiful.

    Funny enough, I used many of the same quotes in my essay on why I love Luna: I truly think she is one of Jo’s most inspired creations.

    This just made my week, thanks for posting this!

  2. Luna is a delight! Her matrix for her world view is set in possibilities. That’s why she is a Ravenclaw. I am amazed and honored to see the depth of artwork that have so many variations of Luna’s character. Dunland and Chantelle capture her mysticism while Jeni Malament and Mudblood428 capture that distinct dottiness. All of the artists do a fine job of distilling a Luna moment. Great quotes. Thank you gor giving Luna her voice. As always, Josie, ya did good.

  3. Such a well-put-together compendium; you’ve really matched art and quotation very well to give us a good picture of Luna’s personality. Thanks! A delight to look at.

  4. I love Jeni’s so much ^-^

  5. Love this.

  6. Thanks Josie, I love Luna. I still think she and Neville should have ended up together.

  7. Thanks for posting, and I hope you continue to add more as your time allows.
    Regarding the quote about Luna as the anti-Hermione: is is true on so many levels and she is very smart too. I love the irony that Luna is in Ravenclaw, but Hermione is in Griffendor. She’s just so unique – I just love her!

  8. A favorite scene since reading the first time in DH, is Luna encouraging the trio against the dementors. “That’s right, Harry… Come on … we’re all still here…” It’s beautiful. She really added to the success of the final confrontation.

  9. Josie, I couldn’t find anywhere else to post this.
    What if DD only let Snape teach Harry occlumency so he could see the years’ memory of Lily?

  10. OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you SOOOOO MUCH FOR THIS EPICAL LUNA PAGE OF AWESOMENESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You just made my day! Possibly my entire week! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
