Best 'Luna' Moment
Oh wow, this is a loaded question. It seems like every moment Lunar was in could fit the bill here! From the moment she was introduced she had no problem being memorable - she's such a surprising and endearing character, it's really impossible not to love her!
I think my favorite Luna moment is from way at the end of Deathly Hallows, and unfortunately wasn't in the film. It's when things are getting really bleak for Harry and co. and he, Ron and Hermione are trying to navigate the battle of Hogwarts under the Invisibility Cloak. Suddenly, they're faced with TONS of Dementors and Harry can not, for the life of him conjure up a Patronus. That's when Luna, Ernie and Seamus swoop in to save the day:
And then a silver hare, a boar, and a 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 their 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..."There was a silver spark, then a wavering light, and then, with the greatest effort it had ever cost him, the stag burst from the end of Harry's wand..

The way Luna encourages Harry warms my heart in a way that I truly cannot describe. ♥ The simplicity of her words just cut through everything else going on. She reaches Harry in a way I'm not sure anyone else could have quite managed, especially with so few words. I know some people knock Luna for being odd
Gif has nothing to do with my moment this week but...Luna + Patronus = close enough?
