Rowling debunked a rumor about a Neville and Luna pairing, she specifically said that they would not get together in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: I see Neville and Luna as very different kinds of people and while they share a certain isolation within Hogwarts, I don't think that's enough to foster true love - friendship, perhaps, although I think that Neville would always find Luna's wilder flights of fancy alarming.
However, what'll happen to them in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a whole other story! While this quote might appear to be the downfall of a very fun ship, I think it's possible that they will end up together. Ron and Hermione are two completely different people, yet Jo stuck them together. James and Lily were polar opposites, yet they ended up together.
Remember the saying "opposites attract"? I think it applies. Jo says that the isolation they share isn't enough to foster true love, and I agree. If that was all we had to go on, this would be a very feeble theory indeed. However, by the end of Half-Blood Prince, they share much more than isolation. They have fought in the Ministry together, then in the Hogwarts battle together. They've been through thick and thin. They share much more than isolation now. Luna's mother died when Luna was ten years old.
I think it would be really sweet if they found solace in each other. They can understand each other much better thanks to this shared characteristic. I'm sure that Ron also finds Hermione alarming at times more specifically, at times of testsand Harry finds Ginny alarming when she's mad Bat-Bogey Hex, anyone? Most couples are alarmed by each other now and then. Weasley cowers in front of Mrs. So now that we've seen that this quote isn't reason to lose all hope, let's continue with the rest of the essay!
Indeed, I myself always pictured Harry with Luna, it seemed like they had a connection after that conversation at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. They are both unpopular, and it's common for unpopular people to find each other and connect, as most of the popular people shun them and they can relate to each other.
I'm fairly sure that if Neville and Luna do end up liking each other, they at least won't be as stubborn as Ron and Hermione about getting together!
So, let's start doing what all great shipping articles do: While we are missing those aforementioned anvil-sized hints, I think we've quite a bit to go on.
Luna turned her pale eyes upon him instead. No, don't close the window yet, I promise this'll be good!
In the first excerpt, Harry and Ginny stumble upon Neville, all alone, looking at Luna, but too scared to go in. This whole scenario screams that something is going on underneath the surface! First, when has Neville ever been alone on the train? He's always with the Trio, with Hermione, with Dean and Seamus, but never alone.

Why is he alone now? So, it could be concluded that he purposely split from his friends, in order to gaze at Luna.
We know that in Potterverse guys are notoriously too cowardly to approach the girls promptly, thus, Neville is also too shy to talk to Luna. Why do you think he "mumbles" something about not wanting to disturb her?

Why not just say, "I'd rather not disturb her" or something to that effect? The next little excerpt once again illustrates Neville's shyness in front of Luna. We've never known Neville to say something of that sort, but it appears Luna really throws him off. We know that in the movies or on TV, when they want to show how head-over-heels someone is, the person always forgets his or her name. It's even present elsewhere in the Harry Potter series. In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Ginny not only never utters her name to introduce herself to Harry, she practically forgets how to talk when Harry's around.
The third excerpt shows that Luna is also interested in Neville at least a little. She pauses in reading the Quibbler, something she appears to be quite engrossed in, to look at Neville.
The last excerpt once again shows that Luna is interested in Neville. When Hermione insults her or her father, to be more exactLuna immediately has to save face in front of Neville, the boy she fancies!
She finally loses that dreamy quality, something we've very rarely seen her do, and defends herself. It is true that Luna claims not to know who Neville is. However, this does not rule out the possibility of a crush. Girls, how many of you have seen a guy, and just started crushing on him without even knowing his name?
My friends have done it time and time again. Or, Luna could just be saying she doesn't know much about who Neville is, even if she does know his name. So the ship isn't ruled out, and from that one chapter, it's possible that the two could at least be crushing on each other somewhat, though from afar.
I therefore award ten points to Mr Neville Longbottom.
Quotes by and about Luna Lovegood – The Harry Potter Lexicon
Tell me, boy, does anything penetrate that thick skull of yours? What do I have to do to make you understand, Longbottom? He looked as though he was on the verge of tears. Perhaps that will encourage you to do it properly. Snape moved away, leaving Neville breathless with fear.
I would advise you not to entrust him with anything difficult. Not unless Miss Granger is hissing instructions in his ear. A tall one with a stuffed vulture on top. And a long dress… green, normally… and sometimes a fox-fur scarf. Let me see… five points to Gryffindor for every person to tackle the Boggart — ten for Neville because he did it twice — and five each to Hermione and Harry. Come clap this loon in irons, he is trying to force entry to the chambers within!
Neville Longbottom, trembling from head to fluffy-slippered toes, raised his hand slowly in the air. PA13 On receiving a Howler: It sounded amazing, though.
There was a faint note of pride in his voice that Harry had rarely heard there before. GF15 On the egg: GF21 Just then, Neville caused a slight diversion by turning into a large canary. My Great Uncle Algie got it for me in Assyria.
Quotes by and about Neville Longbottom
He climbed into bed and pulled the covers up to his chin, looking owlishly over them at Seamus. Neville speaks most highly of you. Longbottom, sounding slightly weary. He was improving so fast it was unnerving and when Harry taught them the Shield Charm, a means of deflecting minor jinxes so that they rebounded upon the attacker, only Hermione mastered the charm faster than Neville.
Harry flung himself sideways as Neville took aim again and shouted:
