I used to wish Luna had ended up with Harry, but I will agree with a lot of fans that it's much more realistic that she ends up with someone else she most likely met outside of school. So, we have Rolf!
We may never know if he was ever at Hogwarts, but apparently he was most likely a Hufflepuff if he was, so I gave him a Hufflepuff scarf. I also gave him the Patronus of a wolf because the name Rolf means "honourable wolf." It also seems to mix well as an ironic pairing with Luna's hare Patronus. He also looks like Eoin Macken as one of the Newsies, but I think I just did that 'cause I'd just seen Newsies in New York before I did this and I often picture Eoin Macken when I think of Rolf. I don't know why.
I like Rolf, too. It's amazing how we can grow to love a character who we barely know anything about!
I like the idea of Rolf. From what little we know about him, he seems much more laid back than Luna, which I think suits her. They're just so lovely!
Agreed. I think it would be a little too pat if EVERYONE paired up with someone they knew in school. After all, the wizarding world's wide.
Plus, I think that J.K. has a point when she says that Luna and Neville's differences would keep them from a satisfying long-term relationship.
Luna and Rolf are kind of my dark horse ship...mainly because I like the idea of Luna finding a mate that shares her career and her interests, and because Rolf's such a tabula rasa. So if I want to imagine he looks like Christian Bale and calls Luna "moon-maiden", it can be so until J.K. says otherwise.
i have a whole storyline in my head for rolf/luna/neville/hannah and its like rowling says, they're too different. i think she'd fascinate him and she'd be very fond of him but in the end - and i say this with all respect to neville, hes awesome - he wouldnt be able to keep up with her.
bahahahahaha i think you just influenced my imagining of rolf way too much XD
Tehe. I like to think it as a habit they both have in common.
