My submission to the Artorder Challenge.
For my inspiration I chose Morgan le Fay as she is characterized in “The Mists of Avalon”., and chose to show her as she is leaving and renouncing Avalon after her falling-out with The Lady of the Lake.

"Too many books?" I believe the phrase you’re looking for is "not enough bookshelves".
The American Revolution
In celebration of America’s founding, we trace the nation’s Revolutionary War from its beginning, on the Lexington Green to its end, agreed upon in the Treaty of Paris. Our authors revisit the battlefields at Trenton, Saratoga, Yorktown, and elsewhere, surveying military turning points and colonial-era politics, to provide a sweeping study of the birth of America.

remember all their faces
remember all their voices
everything is different
the second time around
#can we just stop and appreciate Harry’s face in this scene? #I mean, he’s literally waiting for someone to say something about Hermione’s blood status #she’s the only Muggleborn in the slug club full of purebloods and well known people #and Harry’s there just like “say something I dare you” #and if you look at her face, you can see the actual hesitation and somewhat fear of what will happen next after telling of her parents occupation #Harry truly is acting like Hermione’s big brother, which I absolutely love #i just adore this scene
I love that Neville looks genuinely interested in what hermione’s talking about.
Harry: I wish a motherfucka would talk shit right now
Say something, make my day
Nevile looks like he’s just made a private mental note in flaming red ink: WHATEVER THE HELL A DENTIST IS, DON’T MESS WITH ONE.
#this is a harry potter blog #seriously any profession that turns out a kid like hermione #must be utterly terrifying #neville finds out it involves rearranging people’s teeth with wires and drills #and drugs and scrapy knives #and is like AHA #I KNEW IT#I KNEW THEY WERE TERRIFYING #hermione granger: horrifying storm of a girl since day one #(so do the muggles have to be hunted down for that or does the government assign you targets) he asks her one day #she squints at him for a long time #’they volunteer’ she says eventually #neville shivers #muggles are HARDCORE
