* In ''Half-Blood Prince'', Harry asks Luna to accompany him to Slughorn's Christmas party, and Luna is thrilled. The scene is sad, funny, and heartwarming; it's very well done. And despite the various sideplots also being developed at the party, we still get to see Luna thoroughly enjoy herself.

* Throughout ''Half-Blood Prince'', Molly Weasley, convinced that Fleur Delacour was a vain, shallow, and snobby girl, was ''dead-set'' against Fleur and Bill's wedding. At the end of the book, Bill [[spoiler:is slashed by Fenrir Greyback, is horribly disfigured, and may have some werewolf-ish tendencies]]. Molly is devastated, upset that "he was going to be married." Fleur asks Molly what she meant by "''was''", and yells that she doesn't care if Bill looks different, all that it will prove is that her husband is brave. The scene ends with Molly offering Fleur her great-Aunt's tiara to wear in the wedding; Fleur thanks her coolly, and then the two collapse into a hug and cry hysterically.

** Another example during that scene, while the twins are showing off their Defence Against the Dark Arts wares, Fred and George talk about how surprised they were that so many people in the Ministry of Magic had trouble performing a Shield Charm, before remarking that none of them had a teacher like Harry. Yes, Fred and George - two students who were never seriously concerned with their studies - both respect Harry as a teacher.

* "It is high time your grandmother appreciated the grandson she has, rather than the one she thinks she ought to have." -- Minerva [=McGonagall=] to Neville Longbottom. Professor, you rock.

**This is added on with what happens next. McGonagall suggests that Neville takes up Charms, but Neville says his grandmother thinks it's a soft option
--> McGonagall: Take Charms, and I'll drop Augusta a line that just because she failed her Charms owl doesn't mean the subject is worthless.

*When Harry visits Fred and George's new shop, they insist on not charging him for anything in the store. Fitting, since Harry gave them his winnings from the Triwizard Tournament and that allowed them to open the shop, but really, throughout the series, they've always thought of him as part of their family.

* This conversation:
-->'''Harry:''' Thanks for walking me to the gate.
-->'''Luna:''' I rather enjoyed it. It was like having a friend.
-->'''Harry (surprised):''' ...I AM your friend, Luna.
-->'''Luna:''' That's nice.

* Luna says, "I enjoyed the [Dumbledore's Army] meetings too. It was like having friends." Later in the same scene, Harry tells a rude girl that all the people in his compartment are his friends. Luna says, "People expect you to have cooler friends than us." And Harry replies, "You are cool." Pretty much any scene where anyone is nice to the optimistic yet sadly abused Luna is heartwarming because she ''deserves'' to have kind friends. What makes it even better is that it's a CallBack to the previous book, when Harry had been resentful and humiliated by the mere sight of Cho seeing him sitting with people like Neville and Luna. It shows how much [[CharacterDevelopment Harry had grown up since then]].

* Early in the year, when the students are selecting their N.E.W.T. subjects, [=McGonagall=] tells Neville, not unkindly, that he doesn't have the required grade to continue Transfiguration past O.W.L. level, and goes so far as to ask him why he wants to continue it in the first place, given that he didn't particularly enjoy it in the past. Neville mutters something about his grandmother wanting him to do so, prompting [=McGonagall=] to respond thusly:
--> '''[=McGonagall=]:''' It's high time your grandmother learned to be proud of the grandson she's got, rather than the one she thinks she ought to have, particularly after [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix what happened at the Ministry]].

** McGonagall specifically asking for Hagrid's opinion on the matter, even if he doesn't think it's worth considering. His opinion is that, even if ''just one'' student wants to go to Hogwarts, the school should still be open, and everyone agrees on that.
