"bookish, brave, & brightest."
faerie tale feet piece inspired by the brightest witch of her age.
we love this girl. she’s tough. she’s smart. she’s the brightest witch of her age. she reads. she saves harry and ron more times than they deserve. she’s fierce and loyal, kind and loving. she feels compassion and takes action. she rescues the helpless, she fights for the rights of the house elves because she can’t help but see injustice righted.
have a look at my research & painting process, and then below i tell you all the story icons i hid in the background!
here are some of the icons you’ll find in the background:
- a tooth (she’s got dentists for parents, after all. even if they don’t remember.)
- polyjuice potion (with a cat on the bottle, because, well, it kind of backfired once)
- the gryffindor shield
- the escape dragon from gringott’s
- feather quill pen & ink (not just wingardium leviosa, but you know how she loves to fill scrolls for homework)
- her otter patronus
- her time-turner necklace
- her cauldron
- the mirror that saved her from the basilisk
- the sorting hat (with raven; her almost-sorted-into house)
- knitted hats left around the common room
- the jar of blue flame to sneak into the library and get in some extra reading
anything else you can find?
