Ginny for me. She's my fave female character in HP with no contest. I basically love how she's honest, blunt, snarky, confident, hot headed, so strong ( I mean she was basically mind raped as an 11 yr old and she overcame it) and she's so relatable and she's like so many of my friends and basically I think she rocks.

I do like Luna but she's only ever just been there for me .. I honestly find her to be more of a caricature than anything else. She didn't come alive to me as I read and she's just so ...one dimensional with no faults in text (though I certainly think she has many). Her character never grows and she has no arc, so she's just there for no purpose really. Her vagueness and dreaminess also really annoys me at times. So basically, I can take or leave her ..I don't really care about her whatsoever, whether she lived or died, what she was doing 19 ys later etc I just didn't really think she was developed and that JKR really tried to hard and wanted me to think, she's endearing but I was like uh she can be creepy as hell. And she's just very boring.I know a lot of people find her interesting and ginny boring but for me that's the opposite.I think if I could relate to her,I'd probably like her alot more.
 
I also think Luna's character wasn't really developed that much. I mean, whenever I think of her character, I think of her as a sweet naive girl who's nice to everyone and has intelligence hidden beneath her naivete. While every single character in the Harry Potter series has faults, I can't think of a fault in Luna except that her concentration seems to wander in the most serious of situations. But that's not really a fault, is it? She seems almost like a white character, and I don't believe that anyone can be perfect. Maybe it's because Luna appeared in the 5th book, while the rest of the female characters all appeared since the 1st book (though Ginny only had a real part since the 2nd book).
 
I like Luna's character a lot, because she was one of those few who supported Harry while everyone else turned their backs on him, and she was also an active member in the DA, but as I said before, I like Ginny more.
 
My favorite female character is actually one is isn't a main character at all. I like Lily Evans/Potter the best; don't know why I like her most out of all the femalesStar, but I do.

Even though I am not fan of Stump's ideas, i seriously can't find anything wrong with what stump had written. The member hadn't broken any IF rules had she??
 
 
Nope, not that I know of! It was just that Luna is my most favorite character, and her words made me a bit angry becaue of the swear (I can't tolerate swears)...but that is my fault, I have a bad temper...so forgive me!EmbarrassedEmbarrassedEmbarrassed
