Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, Parvati and Padma Patil of Hogwarts, as they SHOULD have appeared at the Yule Ball ❄️ The Yule Ball scene in Harry Potter and the Goblet or Fire was our girls’ time to shine, but alas, they had to wear those vile orange and pink lengha things. They deserved so much better, so here is my version. According to the Goblet or Fire book, Parvati wore “robes of shocking pink,” and Padma wore “robes of bright turquoise” ….not those tragic, afterthought-looking outfits we ultimately saw on screen. ALSO JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE TWINS DOESN’T MEAN THEY NEED TO WEAR THE SAME DAMN OUTFIT #justiceforthepatilsisters #foreversalty

Krishna is often depicted as romancing gopis (female cowherds), but consider……….Krishna and gopa boyfriends. 

(In all seriousness, however, Krishna–since he is an incarnation of Vishnu–is canonically pansexual and often genderfluid.) 

Edit: The name of the plant is the Parijatha, otherwise known as “Night Flowering Jasmine” in English. It’s Krishna’s favorite flower!
