Headcanon accepted! Harry Potter actors Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) and Robbie Jarvis (James Potter) are dating in the muggle world. Yesterday, Evanna posted a photo of the pair for Robbie's 29th birthday, referring to him in the caption as a "little babe":
She talks about their relationship in other photos, even referring to him as her "boyf". The pair spends quite a bit of time together, doing activities that look like great date material:
It's only a matter of time before Luna/James fanfiction becomes a thing, though I suppose there will have to be some time travel involved. Maybe Luna sees him in the Mirror of Erised and through the magic of non-canon imagination, he steps out to greet her. Though if Luna ends up with James, would Harry cease to exist? Be careful fic writers; with great power comes great responsibility.
It's unclear whether she means "hey, sorry, I wish I hadn't killed him" or "hey, what a bummer, it makes me sad too," but JK Rowling has started a new tradition of apologizing for character deaths with the one and only Fred Weasley.
After an initial tweet said she was sorry about Fred, one fan asked about Tonks and Lupin. Rowling replied, "I thought I might apologise for one death per anniversary. Fred was the worst for me, so I started with him." I'll just be sitting here waiting on apologies for Hedwig and Dobby.
Another fan sought inspiration from the author, who provided a few lovely and humbling images that may get you through a future rough day:
D'aww. That cute little sloth makes up for Fred...a little.
