luna as a tattoo artist

just think about it:

- she gives ginny a stick and poke in their fourth year, the first tattoo she’s ever given anyone
- a tiny crescent moon on the inside of her forearm with magic color changing ink
- it tells ginny the weather, and glows when the weather is perfect for quidditch

- hagrid gleefully gets a tattoo from luna sometime in the fifth year
- on his inner ankle, a square of text tells him about the needs of the creatures around him
- he starts sitting with his ankle on his knee to more easily check it

- she gives harry a tattoo the summer before his eighth year
- a small horntail, but it moves from his chest to sit on his shoulder or cower in the crook of his elbow as it pleases
- it wakes him up from his bad dreams, and keeps him warm in the middle of the night

- she gives neville a tattoo before she was stolen into the malfoy’s manor
- it’s a ring encircling his middle finger
- the magic of it is simple, transforming into whatever word he needs to see most when he asks it

- seamus gets one not long after neville
- it’s a tiny bomb on his collar bone, ticking in time with dean’s heart

- hermione doesn’t want a tattoo at first, but as she grows closer with luna she asks for it very shyly in the middle of her eighth year
- it gently pulses with her heart on her shoulder blade, an hourglass on it’s side
- it will sometimes stand up and run sand, but only when hermione is very busy or stressed

- george asks for a tattoo that finishes his jokes, many years after the war, when he is an uncle and godfather
- luna refuses and instead gives him a non-magical tattoo, a china cup mended with gold over his heart

- draco, many years after luna is an established artist and healer, drops into her shop in diagon alley
- he asks her to fix his scar-slashed Mark, and she turns it into a sleeve of flowers, studded with snakes and turtles
- the flowers bloom with his moods, and shield him from hurting himself

my favorite thing ever is when people send me really long and detailed arguments about why my otp won’t work because they literally have no effect on me. like, honey, i know you’re trying, but there is nothing you can say that i haven’t already heard or that will change my mind. you will have to pry my otps from my cold, dead hands

After a while, exhausted and drained, Harry found himself sitting on a bench beside Luna. “I’d want some peace and quiet, if it were me,” she said. “I’d love some,” he replied. “I’ll distract them all,” she said. “Use your Cloak.” And before he could say a word she cried, “Oooh, look, a Blibbering Humdinger!” and pointed out of the window. Everyone who heard looked around, and Harry slid the Cloak up over himself, and got to his feet.

Don’t ask me why I ship it, because I’ll tell you it was fate, I’ll write poetry to the ship and wish for a better cannon on stray eyelashes and shooting stars, don’t ask my why I fell inlove with that ship (I don’t know how love works) I just know that it happens, that otp found me in the night, drew me in like a siren and made a believer out of me. They call my love for this otp “delusional”, “insane”, (“unrequited”) but this wont stop my feelings. This is my otp and I have a shipper heart. Honesty I Don’t think I stood a chance.

@hprarepairnet event: harry’s birthday celebration - harry potter & luna lovegood

“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.”

Harry Potter / Luna Lovegood  +  Fix You

Because she gets him the best; maybe even more than he gets himself.  Because she knows what he needs and gives him space.  Because she gives him time.  Because she doesn’t try to interfere and let him fix himself.  Because she’s just right there in the right place at the right time.  Because no one other than her knows what to do or what to say when he’s at his worst.  Because no one other than her can ground him like that.  Because she doesn’t even have to try.  She’s just like that.  She’s always been like that.

And he knows she has suffered the same loss, and has been alone, and weird, and bullied, just like him.  And he’s never wanted anyone to call bullshit on him because he’s well aware of it.  And he hates himself for that but doesn’t know how to stop it.  And he’s never wanted to fight with anyone but things just get worse and suddenly she calms him down like nobody could.  And he doesn’t even know why but he thinks he gets her, in some weird way no one understands.  And he cares for her.  He doesn’t need her to fix him; he just needs her.

silvermaze  asked:

Hello! Do you have any Lunarry morning after headcanons? :)

this is for the @hprarepairnet be mine challenge!

  • so.
  • it happened to be that harry and luna were both single on valentine’s day. 
  • and a few weeks earlier, they promised each other they would hang out while their very taken friends had sex for hours and went on over-done romantic dates by candlelight. 
  • harry tried not to be bitter.
  • luna could not be bitter if she tried.
  • they brought back muggle chinese take-out and watched muggle disney movies for hours at harry’s flat.
  • luna had never had the luxury to watch disney films, and well, harry knew she would love them.
  • they were quiet for a long time, until they weren’t.
  • eventually one thing happened after another, and harry’s nails were digging into luna’s back, and luna was moaning his name.
  • it happened quickly, and it was unexpected.
  • but it was natural.
  • and nothing had ever been so easy in his life.
  • he woke up the next morning and was surprised to see luna sleeping next to him.
  • he figured he had dreamed, or maybe she would leave while he was asleep and realize it was a mistake.
  • but to harry it was not a mistake.
  • he watched her sleep for awhile and played with her long blonde hair hesitantly between his fingertips.
  • she woke up softly and fluttered her eyelashes as she adjusted to the light.
  • she pulled the covers closer to her body and rolled over to gaze at him.
  • he expected a look of disgust or something, but instead, she smiled.
  • “there were so many nargles in the air last night, harry,” she told him quietly, “it makes sense that this happened.”
  • harry felt so relieved; he could not help but laugh.
  • he cupped his hand around her face and brushed her cheek with the pad of his thumb.
  • “is this, um, okay?” he asked hesitantly, “i understand if you want to forget about it or something.”
  • luna gave him a funny look but then softly replied, “harry, you were my first friend and will be my last, and sometimes, life goes in a full circle and friends become something more. where does it end, we’ll never know?”
  • and for once, harry understood her perfectly.
