This is the fourth in a series of portraits featuring Jimmy, Sheen, Carl, Cindy, and Libby as wizards and witches in the not-too-distant future of the Harry Potter world (and my gift to my secret santa, ~Katia711). Since they live in America and not the UK, they attend Hogwarts U., a branch of Hogwarts founded in the U.S. shortly before the Salem Witch Trials (it’s on the fanon wiki, which exists for exactly this sort of nonsense). The characters are in their 3rd year in these pics, so that makes them about 13(ish?) years old.
Sorting Hat Says: HUFFLEPUFF! Libby is a shoe-in for this house. She has great people skills, is loyal to her friends, and tackles problems with a no-nonsense attitude. She’s chill, fun, and comfortable in her own skin…though she does have a bit of a weakness for the latest fads and inter-house gossip. But then again, who wouldn’t, when there’s such interesting stuff going on!
Wand: Pear with Unicorn Hair core, 9 inches, slightly springy
Pet: White Cat
Family Background: Like Cindy, Libby comes from a pure-blood family, but none of her relatives really give a crap about that status. Both of her parents are magical entertainers.
Best Subject: Charms. Libby is an average student who doesn’t really stress too much about grades or class rankings. However, she is quite adept at utilitarian magic, and knows a useful charm for just about every situation. Of the five of them, Libby is also the best at Defense Against the Dark Arts, mostly because Carl gets scared, Sheen doesn’t pay attention, Cindy looks for shortcuts, and Jimmy gets too caught up in the theory.
Hobbies and Extracurriculars: Libby has a busy schedule. She adores music, and she performs with both the Frog Choir and the Hogwarts U. Orchestra. She keeps tabs on all her favorite magical celebrities and loves doling out commentary on the latest songs, plays, fashion trends, and the like. She wants to learn Mermish so that she can communicate with the merfolk, who share her love of music.
Libby has friends from every house, but her best friend is Cindy, and they spend most of their social time together. They were already close before coming to Hogwarts U., so it was difficult for them when they were sorted into different houses. To demonstrate their loyalty to each other, Libby wears Slytherin colors in the form of green hair bands, green earrings, and a silver and green broach. Cindy, for her part, wears Hufflepuff-yellow earrings and a yellow and black striped hair-tie. She also enjoys hanging out with Sheen, who she finds cute…in a geeky, hyperactive sort of way ;)
At her worst, Libby is: Superficial, bossy, and frivolous. Every once in awhile she lets her desire for attention get the better of her, and when that happens she’s been known to let a secret slip or start an unfounded rumor. Like Cindy, she craves fame, although of a slightly different kind than her friend.
At her best, Libby is: Fun-loving, levelheaded, and supportive. When everyone else is flying off the handle, Libby keeps it together. She’s secure in who she is and is generally honest and up-front about her thoughts and feelings. In times of danger, she’s reliable and ready to do whatever it takes to help her friends.
Random Fact: Libby once back-sassed a Grindylow so magnificently that it retreated to the water in terror.
