The pages of a book touched your fingertips as you skimmed through it. The sunlight illuminated the words giving them an almost soft angelic glow. Sitting outside in the courtyard in the shade of some trees, Luna was at your side lazily reading a book as well, looking mildly interested, casting small spells that made flowers appear on the ground next to you both of you, and once disappearing she would cast them again. It was a bright Wednesday afternoon and exam season had just ended.
Reading at your own leisure and not being forced to revise and look over old notes was refreshing and you quite enjoyed being able to have a book in your hand that you actually wanted to read.
Luna had just finished putting the charm of flowers again when she spoke up,
“Y/n” you looked up to find her looking whimsically at the flowers, “you know, I believe we’re all like flowers, just a little love, and care and we will bloom into magnificent beautiful things, but if flowers are neglected they wilt and die, never living up to their full potential” she finishes with a smile on her face.
“I think you’re right Luna, we have many parallels between us and nature” she looks at your hair and sees you have two twists on the sides tied up at the back, she picks a couple of the flowers she charmed and stuck them in your hair.
“There you go” you see her trying to fix them right into place.
“Thank you Luna” she gives you a soft closed-lip smile and leans her head on your shoulder,
“No problem y/l they look quite nice in your hair, also I think it’s about time we head to dinner” nodding you both stood up and made your way to dinner seeing Neville and Ginny on the way.
“Hey guys!” Neville said happily when seeing you and Luna walking towards the great hall,
“Hey Nev, and Ginny,” you said and Luna nodded her head towards them,
“Join us at our table for dinner will you?” Ginny said to you and Luna,
“Of course” Luna answered; you, Ginny, and Luna linked arms, Neville leading the way to the table.
The great hall looked as pretty as always with the shimmering candles at the ceiling and long house tables. The smell of cornish pasties, baked potato, and vegetables filled the atmosphere making your stomach rumble in hunger, the whirlwind of the final exam day had riled up so much anxiety you hardly touched your breakfast and went almost an entire day without eating if it weren’t for dinner.
“Gosh I was so nervous for today I hardly ate breakfast,” Ginny said almost speaking your thoughts as you sat down at the table.
“I was just thinking that exact same thing, how do you think you all did?” you said asking all of them.
“Well honestly, I know I did well in Herbology although a question about Bubotuber stumped me a bit until I remembered that incident with Hermione and what would happen if it came into contact with your skin undiluted,” he said with a small smile.
“Potions was the one that stumped me a bit,” said Ginny earnestly, “not my favorite subject in particular of course I just hope I didn’t completely bomb it” she imitated a bomb falling when she said that in the end and everyone laughed.
“Same here Gin, honestly I hope that Snape isn’t too prejudiced against Ravenclaw’s and I get a passing score, I completely messed up the boils potion even though we learned it in first year, I added the porcupine quills before taking it off the fire,” you told her and she smacked her hand across her forehead,
“Wait I did that too... nooooooooo" Luna put a sympathetic hand across Ginny’s back,
“It’s ok Gin, I’m sure you did good on the rest of them” Ginny forced a smile, and Luna continued,
“Honestly these tests aren’t a representation of your true smarts, just how well you can remember things, you are all very smart”
“Luna’s right you know, I crammed these past few weeks for potions, charms, and divination” Neville says and everyone agrees, you all proceed to load your plates up with food.
The Cornish pasties were as good as you remembered them being, Luna stirred and picked at her food,
“What’s wrong Luna?” you asked only loud enough for her to hear,
“Oh nothing, I’m just worried about you and Ginny that’s all”
“Aw Luna it’s alright, I bet we did fine please don’t worry about us,” you said and you couldn’t help but feel your heart swell at your friend’s kindness and worry for you and Ginny, giving her a slight side hug she melted into your shoulder and soon returned to eating her food.
“Y/n?” Ginny said and you looked up with a mouthful of baked potato and she laughed, “can we go to your dorm, me and Neville I mean, after dinner to listen to music and hang out?” swallowing the last bit of potato you answered,
“Of course! Luna and I were going to ask you anyway to see if you guys wanted to come since the exams are over and such” Neville and Ginny smiled and all of you finished your for up quickly.
They loved coming to your dorm since you had a muggle music player and were able to play cd’s of all of your favorite bands.
Once all of you were done and had the chocolate eclairs for dessert, you got up and upon exiting the great hall, you made eye contact with Cedric Diggory and he gave you a small smile, Luna observant as always of course noticed,
“He’s a nice boy isn’t he?” she said nonchalantly raising an eyebrow and your cheeks heated up,
“I-, um-, well..” you said not being able to get the words out when Ginny became frazzled,
“Who? what? where?, who are we talking about?” she said spinning around in circles catching a lot of people’s attention, including Cedrics, as she was trying to see what boy Luna was talking about.
"Ginny, please! You’re drawing more attention to us" you whisper shouted, becoming redder now and she laughed,
“Oh, sorry,” she said with a slight smile,
“It was Cedric, Ginny” Luna said and you hid your face in your hands as you finally made it out of the great hall.
“Ohhhh a Ravenclaw and a Hufflepuff” Neville said wiggling his eyebrows, he was always one to gossip with all of you.
Ginny and Luna laughed as you all made your way to the Ravenclaw dorm, once reaching the Raven, it asks you a riddle,
“Where do vanished objects go?” it says in an almost sing-song voice,
“Into nonbeing, which is to say, everything,” you said and all of you were able to gain access inside the dorm.
It was beautiful inside, the blue stained glass windows matched perfectly with the dark wood. Books lined the walls and comfortable seating areas were all around the common room. Comfortable brown couches with silver accents filled the room along with some bean bags that lay strewn on the floor, they were currently occupied by some of your fellow housemates. It smelled like sandalwood and vanilla and that scent always brought you such nostalgia to first yea when you first entered the common room. Memories of those years filled you up as you and Luna headed to lead the way to the girl’s dorm. Your three other dorm mates were out, either in the common room or still at dinner.
“I love this dormitory and common room,” Neville said and Ginny agreed.
“100%, it’s so pretty and I almost like it more than the Gryffindor one, that one is always so rowdy with the boys talking about quidditch and whatnot, as well as my brothers using first years as test dummies for their joke shop treats, its never quiet in there” everyone agreed, every time you had gone in there either Fred or George tried to coax you into trying some bright colored thing that was sure to leave you with a stomachache after.
Walking over to your stereo, you picked out ′Abbey Road′ by The Beatles, and ′Come Together′ came on as the first track.
Sitting back down on your bed where all of them were you sang along with the song, Luna was simply closing her eyes and swaying side to side with the music. A couple more songs passed and you were all gossiping about Cedric and the look you gave each other in the great hall.
“You know y/n, I heard he gets it everywhere" said Ginny, and Neville slapped his mouth shut in laughter,
“Seriously!? Him? No way where’d you hear that from” Luna softly rolled her eyes and gave out a small laugh,
“Of course you boys don’t talk about this much, but trust me, I don’t gossip much and even I know the inner workings of Cedrics getting around”
“Ohhh Luna has been getting the hot gossip huh?” you say and she gives you a sly smile,
"Maybe..." you all laugh and your banter continues.
“Oh Luna, what’s the new issues on the Quibbler your dad is working on? do you know?” you asked and Neville nodded along looking interested as well.
“Well, father told me there was another sighting of a Crumple-HornedSnorkack, which is absolutely marvelous, I cannot wait to read it so I think there will be an issue on that, the rest I’m not sure yet,” she says and everyone nods.
Having exhausted most topics of conversation and the CD almost being over you all stood up ready to goof around and dance, switching the music and putting on a CD you made with all of your favorite songs, the first song that came on was ′See You Again′ by Tyler the Creator ft. Kali Uchis.
Neville and Ginny got ready to lip-sync to the song as did you and Luna. When it got to the chorus you and Luna held hands as she spun you around,
"Can I get a kiss? And can you make it last forever? I said I’m about to go to war, and I don’t know if imma see you again" you both said in synchrony, Neville and Ginny doing their own thing in the corner which involved Ginny on top go your desk and Neville singing to her at the bottom with a knee bent in fake proposal. Swaying side to side with Luna you both couldn’t stop laughing as you spun around your dorm and she made some dramatic arm movements as she sang.
Coming to the end of the song you and Luna were laying down on the floor along with Neville and Ginny, that was until ′Space Girl′ by Frances Forever came on and that song always reminded all of you three of Luna. You all grabbed Luna and sat her down on the trunk that was in front of her bed and began to serenade her, you flickered off the candles with your wand and conjured up what looked like the entire galaxy on the ceiling.
Luna smiled and covered her face with her hands as the first verse came on,
"Space girl, show me the stars" you sang along and Ginny took over,
"You know the galaxies of my heart" all three of you got on your knees in front of Luna and sang the pre-chorus,
"Girl, are you a cancer cause you make me cry, when we kiss or dance in the sky, we’re dancing in the sky" all of you dramatically fall to the floor only to stand back up the next verse comes in.
"Space girl I saw a lunar eclipse" you sang and you stood Luna up to dance with everyone, ”looked like how I feel bout your lips" you held Luna’s hand and Ginny came to her other side and and sang along with you,
"Space Girl, the only way that we’d end, was if you were sucked into a black hole! But I’d still spend my days dreaming you" Neville sang the little ′Oooo Ooo’ that came after the next couple of verses making all of you burst into laughter.
The dorm room was lit up by the small galaxy you conjured up on the ceiling, the soft blue and white glow of it illuminating your faces as you goofed around and sang to Luna. The ending of the song came and you all said this part, even Luna herself,
"I hope you play, this song someday, and think of Earth Girl, who loves Space Girl" everyone was so happy and in such a light mood for the rest of the evening as you danced and sang along to different songs. You were so grateful in these moments to have such an incredible and funny friend like Luna and you couldn’t help but feel warm and fuzzy inside as you made more memories with your friends that were going to last a lifetime.

That night when everyone left and you were about to fall asleep Luna stops by your bed as you were finishing putting your hair in a ponytail to go to sleep.
“I think it’s quite funny I remind everyone of space girl when I see myself as more of earth girl, because you know, I love nature and just mystical and magical things on this earth,” she says as you’re braiding her blonde hair, which has become a nightly routine and you do it every night before she goes to sleep.
“Luna, personally I think you’re everyone’s space girl, you are so out of this world and just incredible and magical in you’re own way, personally I have never met another person as special as you Lovegood, so I think you can stay as our space girl” you finished off the braid with a hair tie and Luna turned around and smiled.
“You really think so?”
“I know so”
“Well,” she said not being able to contain the smile on her face,“I love you and goodnight y/n” she gave you a tight hug and when she was in bed and turned off the light you said,
“Goodnight space girl"
