I love how you made your human version of Fawkes look like a Monk. The idea is totally genius and unique and ties into his personality perfectly! You are such an amazing and creative artist!
Thanks, I’m so glad you like the Fawkes picture! You are splendid, anon.
Your Fawkes is absolutely perfect! I know that you probably had a lot of people recommending that you draw him but I was one of them and your rendition is so much better than I could have ever imagined!
I’m so glad you like it! Thanks for the suggestion. :)
Italian anon again here, I just wanted to say that I exagerated a bit (just like people I was referring to). I know it's not just sitting on a broomstick and there's also training, but still. Only gym with specific exercise makes you look like that (and not even always). And I agree about James having sexual experiences with someone else, but sometimes it's crazy how some people picture him! Like "one girl every night" and "girls can never stay to sleep after sex". About love.. too complicated.
Oh no worries, I figured.
i saw this post on quidditch muscles a while ago since we're on the subject mybelovedcheshire. tumblr. com/post/ 31620659526/on-the-topic-of-quidditch-muscles
well that’s really excellent.
in case other people want to read it but are lazy and don’t want to take the spaces out of the url
To the anon asking how Quidditch would give a guy a great Ryan Gosling-esque body, it's probably not so much the actual sport of Quidditch that gives the boys muscle but probably training off the broom that is probably needed such as throwing around a Quaffle for the Chasers and Keepers, probably practicing baseball like swings for Beaters, and other drills to keep Seekers in shape and on the slimmer side. I don't know, just a thought.
These are good points.
I agree that Quidditch would be a lot more than sitting on a broom and would keep you in shape.
But then, also:
i'm assuming you make art in your art class. will we ever see any of it?
Erm, it’s possible I suppose but I’m not really thrilled with any of it. But then, I’m never thrilled with anything I do so maybe I’ll share some. :)
Your art is brilliant! Do you write fanfic?
I… have. But I’m not much of a writer. Oh well. :)
Unpopular opinion number 2: James wasn't a sex god who fucked everything that came close to him. I mean, he fell in love with Lily at 15 and he went to a private school in UK in the 70s, it's not Geordie Shore! He most likely just kissed some girls, maybe did some other stuff but having sex with every girl in Hogwarts.. Just NO!
Also agree with this. The idea of James sex-god Potter is not one I buy into.
However I do think he was popular and had his fair share of sexy experience. And while I’m not entirely opposed to the idea, I don’t think Lily was the only woman he ever had sex with. It was the time of the sexual revolution after all. And they were a bunch of teenagers in a magical castle with questionable adult supervision.
Number 1: Quidditch doesn't make your body look like Ryan Goslin's. Gym does that. I've read I don't even know how many fics where Ron/Harry/James/Sirius takes his shirt off and the girl in question is all "Oh my god I love Quidditch, look at those biceps and those pectorals and those abs and blablabla, I want to lick them all over". And even though I quite agree about licking some of them all over (ops!), come on! How's sitting on a broomstick going tho give you all that?
I still think it qualifies as a sport and there would be some physical exertion involved, but perhaps not to movie star creation levels.
On another note, how nice would it be if, A: Quidditch were real and B: it made guys look like Ryan Gosling. Licking justified.
Hi Meg! I'm the Italian anon who writes you sometimes (I'm also the one who suggested Hedwig and James and Lily fighting a while back and Percy and Annabeth when she gets hurt in the battle) and I have 2 unpopular opinions for you and I'm going to send them separately because they don't fit here.
Hello, Italian anon! You make good suggestions. Getting to those opinions now! :)
