Do you imagine Hermione as Caucasian, black, or mixed? I am always curious to see how others see her.
lol to be 100% candid with you Anon I am not the world’s most visual person. (That is actually a huge understatement. I have the poorest facial recognition of anyone I know.) I mostly identify people in writing by their gestures or habits, or by indications in their dialogue. But if I had to answer this question, I honestly see her like this:
Yeah, so, obviously I’ve been a fan longer than the movies have been out, and this is apparently how they started portraying her in merchandise until Emma Watson started playing her. Crazy, right?
Anyway, I tend to describe her as having olive skin, freckles around the eyes, golden features; I emphasize things that glimmer and glow in the sun because that plays into how I characterize her. I’m super down with POC Hermione, though. I don’t love the way Joanne defended her casting decision (I’d have gone for something more like “okay, canon obviously indicates that I wrote her to be light-skinned, but good acting is good acting and being white isn’t at all important to who she is” vs “LOOK, BUSHY HAIR, SEE??!”) but I truly love the way people have come to portray her, however it is that they do it (and @upthehillart‘s POC Harry is a goddamn panty dropper so honestly thank god for more visually creative people)
