Luna's Letters





Dear Mum,

When I went into the Department of Mysteries, I found a mysterious curtained veil.

I didn't know what it was, but I heard your voice coming from it, and Neville heard his grandfather's voice too. And Harry heard his mum and dad's voices. And then I realized what it all meant. The veiled curtain and everything.

After all that followed, I knew that this was a gateway to you. I'm going to write these letters to you, even though you can't write back, and when I have the time I'll go again into the Department of Mysteries and send these letters to you through the curtained veil .I suppose I should tell you how I came here, to the Department of Mysteries

.It all started with Ginny Weasley..

.Love from Luna

Dear Mum,

,I thought my fourth year would be just the same as my previous ones, really. No friends, no clubs, just the same. I only had one friend - Ginny Weasley.

My life changed when I got on the Hogwarts Express for my fourth year.Ginny came into my compartment to sit with me, and she bought along Harry Potter and another boy named Neville Longbottom. Harry took the Qiubbler from me to read - you know, Daddy's magazine - and said it was funny, really, and I think he meant it was good. Then the Neville boy bought in his plant - it was called something like mimbulbus mimbletonia - and it sqiurted Stinksap all over us and Ginny and Harry had to clean it up. Then Harry's other best friends, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley came in to sit with us.

Hermione and Ron were a bit edgy at first, and Hermione very nearly made a joke about Daddy's magazine. Ron made a joke about a baboon's bottom - it was so very funny!

They're an odd group, really, Harry and Ron and Hermione. Harry's the bold, brave one, while Ron keeps making silly mistakes all the time, while Hermione's the clever one, trying to fix everything Ron does!

.I'll tell you more later on in another letter - paper is so scarce now, and something tells me Neville doesn't want to spend all of his on me

.Lots of Love


Dear Mum,

When Harry shouted out to whole school that Voldemort was back, I believed him. It was true, what he said about Voldemort. And something tells me we became friends from that moment on. I didn't just have Ginny for a friend now - I had Harry, and Hermione and Ron accepted me too

.Neville's a really nice boy too, you know. Everyone underestimates him, and just like me everyone calls him stupid, too

.Harry and I have a lot in common, really. We have seen death, and we were a couple of outcasts in my fourth year. Everyone thought us mad, until my fifth year.

.See you,


Dear Mum,

When Harry started a Defense Against the Dark Arts group, I was the first to join, along with Ginny and Neville. I never missed a meeting - a single meeting - me and Ginny and Neville were always there. It was so fun practicing. I can make a Patronus - it's a hare!

This secret defense club, which's name is Dumbledore's Army, was like having friends

.Hermione, after a few weeks, thought me a friend too. She invited me to the Three Broomsticks for a drink with Harry and some writer called Rita Skeeter. Really, mum, Rita's a horrible woman, but then, Ginny told me how clever Hermione's got Rita under her thumb. Rita insulted the Qiubbler, too, but Hermione made her pay for that, by forcing her to write an article on how Harry saw You-Know-Who return. And for free in the Qiubbler!



Dear Mum,

But then, I had to stop practicing and put my skills to use. Harry's godfather, Sirius Black (he's innocent, Mum) was stuck in the Department of Mysteries and we had to go rescue him. And that is how Ifound out about the veiled curtain - we saw it there in the Department of Mysteries.

A lot of things happened then, and in the end poor Sirius Black was killed, and Harry was devastated. I helped comfort him, and after that the five of them (Ginny, Harry, Hermione, Neville, and Ron) became my most trustiest and bestest friends.

Harry' had become really famous, because everyone saw that Voldemort had returned

.I also went on a holiday with Daddy to hunt Crumple-Horned Snorkacks!

Tell you more next time,


Dear Mum

,But after a year, skies darkened in my sixth year when Professor Dumbledore was killed and Professor Snape (he was the one who killed him) became Headmaster and Voldemort's Death Eaters became teachers. Neville, Ginny and I re-formed Dumbledore's Army and we hatched plans to throw back the Death Eaters, Alecto and Amycus Carrow. We all got hurt pretty badly, but we never gave up, no, not once. We vandalized the walls with messages like Dumbledore's Army and such.

But when I went home for christmas Death Eaters kidnapped me and Mr. Ollivander (you do know him, don't you? He's the wandmaker) along with a goblin called Griphook, and a Gryffindor Muggle-born named Dean Thomas. Then Harry rescued us.

In the end, there was a big battle, and, in the end of that Harry killed Voldemort. It was brilliant, really, and Harry was so much surrounded by people he started yearning for privacy.



Dear Mum,

Things are much better now. The war's ended, the Death Eaters in prison, and Professor McGonagall is Headmistress of Hogwarts, and Kingsley Shacklebolt is Minister for Magic.

Nobody calls me a Loony now, and everything's back to normal.

In this war, so many people have lost their loved ones. Ginny lost her brother, Harry lost his two friends, Lupin and Tonks, and so many more people have died.

I have found myself such good friends - oh, so good - and anything couldn't be better. I really miss you, Mum, and Daddy says he's sure you would be proud of me if you knew. But then, Harry told me something: The dead are never dead as long as we do not forget them. And I will never forget you, and I'll keep writing to you, even though you can't write back, and pass the letters through the veiled curtain

.Love from Your Loving and Remembering


P.S. I'm sure Ginny would've wanted to send a message to her brother, so will tell Fred Weasley hello from her? And hi from Harry to Sirius Black.
