Create a life that you are genuinely proud to be the one living.  One that does not just look good on the outside, but also feels right on the inside.

Most often times the road to success will be a lonely one. But remember that you are connected to the universe and that it is going to support you on your journey.

900 Nifflers
  • Harry: Draco, there are about 900 Nifflers in our garden.
  • Draco: That is... oddly specific.
  • Harry: Draco, why are there so many Nifflers in our garden?
  • Draco: I lost something.
  • Harry: Oh?
  • Draco: Something shiny.
  • Harry: Oh??
  • Draco: And round.
  • Harry: Oh???
  • Draco: Something I wanted to give to you.
  • Harry: OH!
  • Draco: I've been holding on to it for quite some time now.
  • Harry: OH!!
  • Draco: I was waiting for the right moment.
  • Harry: OH!!!
  • Draco: Yes, because I suspected you would throw a fit.
  • Harry: What? Why would I throw a fit over an engagement ring?
  • Draco: Engagement ring? I was talking about your sunglasses!
  • Harry:
  • Harry: What?
  • Draco: Um... also, I broke them.

What an absolutely stunning piece by @luciasatalina 

I literally cannot express in words my joy every time I look at this portrait, how the expression seems to subtly shift each time you meet her gaze, which is extraordinarily consistent with Kei’s character. She was an absolute joy to work with, even when basically all I did was throw reference material at her and say GO WILD DO WHAT YOU WANT.

And the result of what she wanted was this beautiful work. everyone should go follow and lavish praise on her, could not recommend more highly. Thank you <3
