#1: The Lovegood Quibbler Connection - Will this important?

Posted on 2005-08-03 19:10:45 by Gary G

My apologies if I haven't seen this before. . .

Is Luna just comic relief? I'd imagine it could be put
in by JK for that reason. We obviously know the comparison
of Quibbler to our own "junk" mags.

HOWEVER! She stood up and fought at the end - and actually
has made DADA progress.
She knows a lot of "strange" things that have turned out
to be true - albeit trivial - at times.

Thus, I would like to pose the question:
Do you think she will have a critical role?

Do you think her father actually knows or finds out things (maybe
not all of them 'right'), but might be significant in the end?
By significant, I don't necessarily mean "heroic", but something
that seems absurd turns out to be helpful . . .?

Remember she's a "wierdo" from the perspective of "normal kids".
But - Harry has shown maturity to be an unconditional friend, regardless
of what others think - an obvious sign of maturity that was
blatantly shown on commented on by JK.
Or, maybe that's all it's for. Maturity.

Yes, and yes. My current pet theory is that JKR is deliberately writing Luna in
such a way as to make her appear completely, well, Looney, to distract us from
the fact that Luna is providing us with solid clues. I don't have any exact
quotes in front of me but re-reading OotP immediately after finishing HBP
convinced me there's more to Luna than just comic relief.

However, when JKR has Luna humming &quot;Weasley is our King&quot; under her breath I
think it's just to give us a laugh.

I intend to go back and reexamine all the Luna passages soon, but I just picked
up GoF again....

I wouldn't be too surprised if the Quibbler accidently identifies one
or two horcruxes in book 7. If our heros have to research, get to and
destroy 5 horcruxes all by themselves they would require too many pages
to do so. There's got to be one or two which can be dealt with rather
quickly.

Well, you know - the whole point of that publication
is the &quot;off the wall&quot; stuff - but they take it very seriously.
So, who knows. . . .
You all may be right.
People just pass it off as, well, looney!

Imagine if/when it does turn out to be important.
Hermione is going to read it every day first thing - no matter
where she is. . .

Maybe Harry and Rob will learn to read . . .

Hundreds of owls descended upon the students as they ate breakfast. Some
carried letters from parents while others bore bright red envelopes that
Harry was certain were Howlers; letters that if unpoened would burst into
flames and release their screaming contents.

A full minute after the last of the owls flew in, Pigwidgn struggled
through one of the high windows out of breath and laboring under a
substantial load. Half flying and half falling, he managed to make it to
the Gryffindor table and mostly miss platter of toast. The orange
marmelade, however, did not fare nearly so well.

Agent P reached into the pocket of his robe and took out his sunglasses.
After putting them on and straighting the scarf that Mrs. Weasley had made
for him, he turned to Mrs. Weasley's youngest son who was just then untying
a tabloid from the small owl's foot. It was time to check the Quibbler and
the other 'Hot Sheets' for clues to Voldemort's whereabouts.

Luna is the one who tells Harry what he needs to hear when his friends
are failing him. She doesn't possess an ounce of tact so she says
what she thinks-- no matter how wacky it is. Yeah, she is one of my
favorite parts of the HP books.
