Luna Lovegood

you're the very essence

of dreams&magic

and when people see you,

they see d-r-i-f-t-y cloudy d-a-y-s

"oh that luna lovegood?

she's just luna lovegood"

X

you're brave

(but you aren't courageous)

you're cheerful

(but no one can be cheerful all the time)

you're sunshine

(but before the clouds part they have to exist)

you're perfect

(but you aren't)

X

because 'that luna lovegood'

is just that

a daydreamer, a friend
comic relief

and a comforter

X

and when hermione's crying&crying&crying&crying over ron

you're the one who wraps you arms around her and holds her tight

and you tell her don't worry hermione don't cry he'll come round

you say, tell me hermione, what're you worried about

and she tells you, she tells you how ron laughs and hates and oh lavendar, that idiot –

and you sit with her and listen, listen, listen

until she's out of words and then you promisepromisepromise

that ron loves her

and you say your words, your logical, logical words,

until she's smiling again

X

and when ginny's out of her mind with stress the next year

about her parents and brothers and friends andharry

of the carrows and hatred and hogwarts

you take her aside and tell her it's okay you have us we're all going to be fine

and she lists you her worries and you diffuse them, bit by bit

and you say your words, your sweet, sweet words,

and – finally – she smiles

and she walks off happy again

X

((but hermione's the logical one

and ginny's the sweet one))

((and you're just loony, no luna lovegood))

X

and no one sees you

quietly wishing

for a silly (funny) tall (stately) reckless (courageous)

boy
with handknit cardigans

and a deadlydeadly secret

(that you've had figured out for years, by the way)

with his eyes that see right into you

X

N E V I L L E L O N G B O T T O M

shhh don't say it

maybe if you don't say it it'll go away

X

and maybe

oh, maybe/maybe/maybe

he sees more than the drifty dream clouds

he sees more than just luna lovegood,

he sees the real person hiding

(because no one can be dreamy always)

X

oh, you dream, all right

you dream and dream and dream, till you forget what reality is

but in the back of your mind you know

reality is pain

reality is death

reality is your mother, collapsing in a pile of ashes

reality is your father, never the same again

reality is scary.

X

and you love those dreams,

you love your world,

and you wouldn't lose it for a n y t h i n g

X

but you're real too, you're real too
u n d e r n e a t h

X

you have terribly real dreams

of a boy (in a cardigan?) whisking you away

and loving you forever

and perhaps you'll have little girls

and perhaps you'll name them Hope (your mother) and Alice (his secret)

X

but no one sees because you're just loony lovegood

X

so you watch and you wish

but neville falls for another girl

with pigtails and a dimply grin

so gloriously normal

and he asks you to be in the wedding

('cuz I love you, Luna, you're like my sister)

and you

c

r

a

s

h

to the ground

X

but you can't show it

because you're l u n a l o v e g o o d

X

and you marry rolf scamander

because he's dreamy as you, and he's what everyone would expect

and you have two boys

and you name them dreamy names like everyone knew you would

X

and then you're Luna and Rolf and Lorcan and Lysander

and you're happy (honest I am)

but deep in your heart are the quiet whispers

X

of a boy
X

with a cardigan
X

and hours lost

X

helping others

X

and how

X

it

X

could

X

have

X

been..
