Luna Lovegood headcanon ~

During the summers of her Hogwarts years, Luna and her father traveled magical realms. Luna visited Neverland, Wonderland, Narnia, Oz, Halloween town, and several other places. 

Her favorite was Wonderland, because she befriended the Mad Hatter. He made her feel at home, and a little less.. Mad. Oz was a close second. Glinda had been thrilled to meet another good witch, and Luna was amazed at Glinda’s magic. Neverland was always fun. Luna loved flying without the need for a broom. In fact, she has a tiny bottle of pixie dust she carries with her, in case of emergencies. Narnia was full of amazing creatures she’d never seen before. The best part was they could talk! Halloween town was terrifying, yet thrilling. Jack had been a wonderful host.

However, when the war began, Luna and her father couldnt take these trips any more. There wasnt time. Luna missed it terribly. She wanted to go back, see Aslan, Peter, the Hatter, Glinda, and all her magical friends. 

After the war was won, Luna knew she couldnt go back just yet. She was needed there, to help the Wizarding world recuperate. Though she would return soon. She woudln’t be able to stay away for long.

Luna: “I’ve been thinking… Why is a raven like a writing desk?”

You know, on top of all the ugly racism, this uproar over the televised NBC production of The Wiz is pathetic in a couple of other ways:

1. These geekboys are calling themselves Oz fans, yet they’re apparently under the mistaken impression that The Wiz is a remake of the 1939 film. Jokers wanna act like they’re experts on the Oz canon when they don’t even know it was a book first.

2. On top of that, they’re banging on about fidelity to the source material, evidently unaware that The Wiz actually sticks much closer to L Frank Baum’s novel than the 1939 film does, both in terms of its overall plot and in terms of the specific details of the setting. Meanwhile, the race of most of the principle characters is never specified, so portraying them as black can hardly be regarded as diverging from the text. By their own professed standards (i.e., fidelity to the source material über alles), The Wiz is the superior adaptation.

Cecelia was in the air. She was flying, flying, flying. And then she was falling. She held tightly to her dog, her eyes shut tight. Suddenly there was a crash, jolting the whole house. Silence.

Cecelia opened her eyes slowly, adjusting to the light. She stood on shaky feet, making her way to the door.
