One of my fav next gen headcanons/plot bunnies is that Draco plays professional quidditch and all the Potter kids are massive fans of his and have huge posters of him in their rooms which only get more and more suggestive the older the kids get and Harry’s eyes linger on them longer and longer every time
We can all pinpoint the moment in the series where we said, “This isn’t a children’s book anymore. It’s become something much darker.” (For me, it was when Wormtail cut his hand off.) Yet I also think it’s beautiful how the series is structured so that as Harry grows up, it changes from a children’s book to a teen novel to something more adult. I love how Rowling was honest in saying that life can be dark and gruesome at times. She didn’t flinch, and she trusted her readers not to flinch either.
I was inspired to sketch some Auror!Potter today, so here’s the ones I started to post on new instagram of my concepts/headcanons of him :) @potterbyblvnk
I like to think Harry play with the snitch whenever he’s under pressure or just need to think. Last three ones are Harry with a modern auror training uniform, I guess :D I couldn’t decide the hairstyle - but more I paint him, more I prefer the man bun. Yep!
“I don’t think you should be an Auror, Harry,” said Luna unexpectedly. Everybody looked at her. “The Aurors are part of the Rotfang Conspiracy, I thought everyone knew that. They’re working to bring down the Ministry of Magic from within using a mixture of dark magic and gum disease.”
