this just makes me want to flip a table it’s so perfect
it took me 20 seconds to realise this was not a fucking photo.
I fucking know *flips table*
My mum broke her wrist and didnt want to go to her dinner party with an ugly cast so I broke out some brushes and painted Van Gogh’s ” Starry night ” on it for her.
What you don’t seem to realized is that there are many different levels of intelligence. Wasn’t Luna the one that found a way to get to the ministry? Wasn’t Luna the one to always comfort Harry- the one who understood him in ways that no one else could? You don’t have to have Book smarts to be considered smart. It’s clear that Luna has very high levels of interpersonal intelligence. To be honest I don’t even know where this is coming from- we never see her in a classroom, we don’t see her grades- wtf are you talking about? Because she believes in things other people don’t? Do we have proof that those things don’t exist!? This was one of the most important themes in the book- Voldemort, the chamber of secrets, the room of requirement, horcruxes, Ravenclaw’s diadem, THE DEATHLY HALLOWS….. people didn’t believe they existed but eventually they were proven wrong. So why should Luna be considered stupid just because she chooses to believe!? And I can’t… because she doesn’t try to make friends!? Really? Fucking REALLY!? WHY would you try to be friends with people who treat you like crap? Who bully you and call you names just because you’re different? No one needs friends like that. And Luna didn’t need people like that in her life and she knew that. Didn’t she eventually find the friends that she deserved? The ones that accepted her quirks and differences and didn’t try and make her change? Frankly, I’m ashamed of you. You’re showing levels of narrow-minded ignorance a Ravenclaw shouldn’t possess.
Fuck, being a Ravenclaw does NOT mean being academically brilliant and overly logical and having a stick up your ass. It means being open to new ideas and alternatives and being willing to think outside of the box; it means accepting that you do not know everything but nonetheless choosing to follow your own path and learn for the sake of learning. It means not judging others for their eccentricities because there are so many different types of intelligence. While it makes logical sense that Ravenclaws would be good at academics and smart, being smart has multiple facets. Two brilliant people could disagree with one another on everything just because their modes of thought and the way they process information is completely different. Luna was different, and the way she processed reality may seem funny, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that she passionately searched for information about things she was interested in, even if that thing is a crumple horned snorkack. Being a Ravenclaw means accepting the world for being a strange and marvelous as it is, and seizing it to learn all of its intricacies. Luna is more a Ravenclaw than you will ever be.
Can we also bring up the fact that one of the magical creatures she “made up” was found to be true, but only certain people could see it so they thought she was insane?
If the thestral was real, who’s to say the other things weren’t?
I knew when the answer opened with those gifs that someone was going to get schooled.
Are we never going to talk about how the “password” to the Ravenclaw tower is a RIDDLE?
A Ravenclaw who is strictly logical will LITERALLY BE UNABLE TO GET TO THEIR DORM. A Ravenclaw who has book-smarts and cannot think outside the box and take the weird answer WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE A RAVENCLAW. “Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?” “Where do Vanished objects go?”
TO BE A RAVENCLAW YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THE ANSWER THAT ISN’T GIVEN, TO TAKE THE WEIRD OPTION AND FLIGHT OF FANCY AND MAKE SENSE OF IT. BECAUSE THAT’S THE KIND OF RIDDLE RAVENCLAWS LIVE ON. THE KIND OF RIDDLE THAT ACTS AS A KEY TO GET INTO THEIR DAMN DORM.
AND WHAT’S MORE, YOU KNOW WHO WAS THE SHITTIEST TO LUNA, AS FAR AS WE CAN TELL FROM THE BOOKS? OTHER. RAVENCLAWS. RAVENCLAWS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO COULD HAVE GOTTEN INTO HER DORM AND TAKE THINGS. RAVENCLAWS HAD TO HAVE A BIG FUCKING HAND IN TORMENTING LUNA. WHY THE FUCK SHOULD SHE MAKE FRIENDS WITH THOSE PEOPLE?
this post is so great because it demonstrates exactly how luna got bullied for being different and also how she got a badass posse of friends to save the goddamn world with
We also have to consider the facts that Luna Lovegood holds characteristics that people who are historically deemed as “Masterminds” actually hold. Surely, everyone has their downside but here we go. Albert Einstein, he had enough INTELLIGENCE to learn how to bend and work with nuclear power. He knew how to even create it to make the most scariest weapon known to man in our lifetimes. But he had ADD, and he also went against the idea of using nuclear weapons for war.
Nikola Tesla, was an inventor, both an electrical and mechanical engineer, physicist, futurist. But Tesla was considered one the most maddest of scientists. We’re talking a man who kept all of his equations in his head, and any book he’d ever read. He was considered so (crazy) intelligent, when he suggested he could build a machine that could divide the Earth into two, no one stepped up to ask him to prove it. Because they knew he WOULD and then we’d all die.
Luna Lovegood is that kind of intellectual being that the idea of “Schooling” is just hard for her. It’s so hard for her because she has to stoop to other people’s levels to prove things she knows are true. She isn’t STUPID she’s very smart. Instead of sitting in the corner crying over what she knows is real. She just does the one thing a book series like Harry Potter wants us to do.. It’s called BELIEVING IN YOURSELF. She believes in herself and she can live through that..
I have taken multiple tests, I am considered a Ravenclaw, I share a lot of characteristics with Luna Lovegood. I am rather unique and somethings I say should be kept inside but I don’t have that off switch. I have been considered stupid by my other peers who are “smarter”. I was sent back a year in grade 3 because I suffer discalcula(I can’t do mathematical equations well..). I believe in things that many consider imaginary, like ghosts and the fact people have souls. But bullies have never stopped me from believing in myself. When I found Luna Lovegood in the books and movies I was so happy that she was considered a Ravenclaw. She’s also my favourite character aside from Sirius.

This is deep, man
one of the greatest piece of information taught to me in life was from a fucking deranged talking baboon
#the fact that they made us all love him BEFORE he was Captain America
The fact that she is running towards the grenade too. Sobs.
