Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail, never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.
“Nothing pleases me more than when somebody who was awe-inspired to be working with me realizes I’m just another schmuck that they’re bored of hanging out with on a set. I love that moment. I like it when that persistent illusion is smashed.”
30 Days of Women: Day 2: Favourite Supporting Female Character | Luna Lovegood — Harry Potter
Luna is a brilliant foil to the main three in so many ways. She appreciates Ron in a way few people do, she challenges Hermione’s complacent intelligence, and she understands Harry’s grief. She’s a delightfully interesting character as well — she’s a cloudcuckoolander who understands that she’s weird and doesn’t care. She genuinely cares about people just for the sake of caring for them and treats everyone with respect. Her perspective on things is fresh and really contrasts nicely with the other characters.
