Haha what if Hogwarts had a yearbook? Maybe it would look a little like this. Okay, before I start naming people not ALL characters are included. Why? Two reasons: One, I don't have pictures of everyone. Two, I was running out of space.
Characters are in no particular order as I did not list them alphabetically, however, I did put the trio first because, wel, the stories do revolve around them. And Ginny is next to Ron because they're related. The second row is kind of just scattered. Haha Draco next to TWO Weasley's! And not to mention Neville to top it off. The last row is about as random as can get and it wasn't until I finished that I realized everyone in it represents a different house. How cool is that? Yes, Cho and Cedric are next to each other...how sweet.
As for who's included I tried to include all the important students. Not the random ones who don't really play an integral part in the story like the Patil twins, Seamus Finigan, etc etc... This NOT based on the characters I like best. If it was, Lavender Brown certainley would not be there for I loathe her in every way possible. How the hell is she even a Gryffindor???
My intention was for all the backgrounds to be the same and to be solid. However, the task was ever so regrettably impossible because not all of them had the same colored bg's. Harry, Hermione, and Neville pretty much broke the pattern. As did stupid Lavender with her unecessarily way-too-zoomed photo. And Cedric with his bizarre swirling background.
And finally, the question you've all been waiting for me to answer: WHAT THE HELL IS TOM RIDDLE DOING THERE???
Well, funny story... just kidding. Okay, the only reason I put him there was because there was literaly no other choice. The same case with Lavender (although I'd take Tom over her anyday!). Without him the last row would have been uneven and that just looks sloppy. Plus, I'm a perfectionist and that empty black spot was taunting me so I had to fill it with someone and a teacher would be totally out of place there so, as you can see, the closest thing was a picture of young oh-so-handsome Tom.
Other than that, hope you all like it!
