Cape (Detail)
Emile Pingat
1895
This beautifully constructed Pingat cape gains a rich and elegant appearance from its use of coordinating black beadwork embroidery on alternating flat and pleated panels of contrasting materials. That elegance can particularly be seen in the front where the embroidery on the two flannel panels line up to create a larger cohesive design oriented horizontally, as opposed to the other panels which are vertically oriented.

A quick drawing of the Potter family, because of this and this.

Yes.

YAAASSSS
this is the best thing I’ve read all week, I’ve been freaking out about this for like an hour. My new favorite headcanon

This is interesting, I never really realized that I too go by the “white unless otherwise specified” mindset. But I really don’t see why this would be anyone’s new favorite anything. It’s literally the same story with different colored skin

Well that’s a brand new offensive way to repeat the “skin colour doesn’t matter” mindset. No, it’s not just the same story with different colour skin as skin colour affects the way people are perceived and changes historical and societal context. If Harry were portrayed as mixed race then that adds several different layers to the story. He’d have to come to terms with being a wizard and being mixed race, which is a very different experience from being white and having the privileges that come with being white. Just like if Harry were a cis girl, that would alter her experience etc.
In real life there aren’t many children’s books written about children of colour or mixed race children for that matter. Protagonists of children’s books are overwhelmingly white and male. Having Harry be mixed race and having the series be as pppular as it is would drastically alter the world of children’s literature. Not to mention, England has a significant population of mixed race people and mixed race kids deserve to see themselves represented. That’s why it would be someone’s new favourite thing.
