Celebrating 20 Years of Harry Potter with Illustrator @taryndraws

For more Harry Potter-inspired illustrations, follow @taryndraws on Instagram.

Like millions of others around the world, Taryn Knight (@taryndraws) first discovered the magical world of Harry Potter when she was a young girl, and hasn’t stopped loving it since. “I just kept reading them over and over,” she says of author J.K. Rowling’s book series. “Something just clicked. I was immediately obsessed.”

It wasn’t until Taryn, a Colorado-based freelance illustrator, was older that her love for all things witchcraft and wizardry began to manifest itself in her drawings. “I didn’t do a lot of art when I was first reading the books,” she says. “But once I started drawing regularly, my passion for Harry Potter began to creep in.”

Taryn, a self-proclaimed Hufflepuff, is excited about the celebration surrounding #HarryPotter20, the 20-year anniversary of the UK release of the first book in the series, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.” “It seems to be reigniting everyone’s love for the Potter world,” she says. “It feels a bit like that old familiar buzz of a new book release.”

Alive | Harry x Reader

Hey guys! I felt bad for not posting in a kajillion years, so i wrote this as a little apology!

Pairing: Harry Potter x Fem!Reader

Warnings: Angst.

You stood beside your brother, Draco, hands clasped in front of you and your head bowed as Bellatrix questioned the Granger girl about the sword the snatchers had discovered in their belongings. You flinched as Hermione let out another scream, your aunt mercilessly torturing her for answers. Draco grabbed your hand comfortingly from beside you, knowing you hated this. He did, too, but it was worse for him to watch his younger sister struggle through this. You turned your head into his shoulder, scrunching your eyes shut tightly as you tried to block out Hermione’s screams.

Shock jolted through you at the sound of someone casting a spell. Your head shot up, and your mouth dropped open at the sight of Ron Weasley and the now recognizable Harry Potter running to the rescue of their best friend. Your heart pumped at the sight of Harry, thrumming harshly against your ribcage - beating so loudly in your ears you feared he could hear it.

Ok but hear me out:
What we really need is a Harry Potter TV show.
Season 1 will be all about the founders, their youth, how they met each other how they founded Hogwarts and the drama with Salazar Slytherin.
Season 2 will be loads of additional characters during the first centuries of the school and just a lot of regular Hogwarts stuff BECAUSE WE ALL WANT MORE OF THAT. AND THEN
Season 3 will show all of our favourite professors attending Hogwarts and give us loads of information about their backgrounds and THEN FINALLY IN
Season 4 we will move on to THE MARAUDERS AGE. Young James. Young Sirius. Young Remus. Young Peter. Young Lily. Young everyone-we-love.
Just. Imagine.
