*Glances at the clock (11:36 PM)*
Well, this seems like a good time to make this really long post.
So anyway, I have this headcanon that, in 1912, a Muggle boy received a letter from Hogwarts. The boy had grown up on a farm and lived a relatively simple life. But he had always been able to do strange things. He can make the animals walk around, as if they were human. And he can make his drawings move across the page.
And so the boy says farewell to his brother, Roy, (of whom he’s very close to), the rest of his siblings, and his parents. And he sets off on an amazing adventure. He’s sorted into Ravenclaw and spends seven grand years at Hogwarts. And in that time, his magical artistic skills excel. He amazes all of the other students in his class by drawing something and having it come to life on the parchment. It truly was some of the most advanced magic that Hogwarts had ever seen. As such, the boy graduates from Hogwarts at the top of his class.
He’s offered multiple jobs but he turned them all down in order to pursue his passion. Some of his friends claim that he’s completely mental. But he knows what he’s doing. He has a plan, a goal, a dream…
He meets a lovely young witch and the two marry in 1925. Several years later, in 1928, the man pours all of his magical talent into his latest creation. Using very advanced magic, he’s able to make a drawing of a mouse come to life to accompanying music.
He wants to name the mouse Mortimer but his wife insists that it’s too pompous and suggests that he use the name Mickey instead…
