post the eighth

I am madly in love with Luna Lovegood.

Those of you who don't know much about the Harry Potter world, particularly Book the Sixth, may want to learn more about Luna first. Feel free to read this Wikipedia article for some sort of background on her.

So yeah, I think I've found the one for me. Luna has everything that I'm looking for in a woman. I'll back myself up with quotes from the book.

"You all right, Harry? You look funny," said Neville.
Harry started. "Sorry -- I --"
"Wrackspurt got you?" asked Luna sympathetically, peering at Harry through her enormous colored spectacles.
"I -- what?"
"A Wrackspurt...They're invisible. They float in through your ears and make your brain go fuzzy," she said. "I thought I felt one zooming around in here."
She flapped her hands at thin air, as though beating off large invisible moths.

As if that weren't enough, there's more...

"Nobody's ever asked me to a party before, as a friend! Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I dye mine, too?"

I can't find the bit in the book where she commentates on the Quidditch match, but that part just makes me love her even more.

I'm quite aware that it isn't a good idea to fall in love with fictional characters, but I really can't help myself. She's the one for me. I'm not sure that I'm going to be able to contain myself when she appears on-screen in Movie the Fifth. It's going to be awesome.

I just thought I'd share that with everyone. Enjoy.

- Optimistic.

Luna is awesome. She is my role model. But I can't be in love with her, as she and I are the same species. I can, however, make it known that I absolutely pine for Malcolm Reynolds of Firefly/Serenity fame. Oh baby oh baby.

Hee. See, this is why I will never get married. I have so many favorite male characters, my future Almost has too much to live up to. His brain would probably asplode. Bwahaaha!

I do find it odd that you are in love with a fictional character. Of course I myself was quite smitten with Vaughn from Alias until then went and killed him. I mean, who doesn't want a hot CIA spy? I'm glad you guys came to my talent show. Sorry you had to sit through a WHOLE HOUR beforehand. PS I'm blogging again. Remember that whole short attention span thing? Guess it comes and goes...
