Team Luna (Tournament of Heroines)

Luna Lovegood

Luna Lovegood is one of the most memorable Harry Potter characters. Her appearance may be brief when compared with the trio, Dumbledore, and lots other characters, but she makes an big impression. So when the opportunity came up to represent Luna in The YA sisterhood's Tournament of Heroines I jumped. Because when I first met Luna Lovegood--I kinda wanted to be her. Actually sometimes I still do.
The key to Luna is that she has that unbelievably rare quality of actually not giving a damn what anyone else thinks of her. Now, if we as adults say honestly how many people we've known like that I think very many of us would say uh none! And Luna's like that. She doesn't actually care. She's so comfortable with being different. She's fearless.
-JK Rowling
I want Luna to win this tournament because she's a different kind of heroine.

There are so many reasons Luna should win. I've got a lot of thoughts swirling around in my head. But I want to hear from everyone who loves Luna! What does she represent to you? Why should she win? What did you think when you first met our "looney" friend? Has she inspired you?

I'm trying to assemble a TEAM LUNA because if there's one thing we learned from Harry Potter--we can do anything with the help of our friends. If anyone has some mad photoshop skills and wants to help Luna out let me know! (I have photoshop skills but no photoshop anymore. Tis a very sad state of existence)

Her first match is Dec. 9 vs Sophie (another lovely YA heroine). Stay tuned for more!

(Why did this disappear into drafts? I swear I published it once already!)
