Miss Gaunt

Pregnant and desperate, Merope considers pawning her only valuable possession - the priceless family heirloom, Slytherin's locket.

Part of why I like the later Potter books is to get a grasp of Voldemort's past. I was enraptured by the plight of Merope, and though she isn't the quintessential strong, empowering female character, her situation is something I think many people can relate to, and I think every woman can understand her hopelessness and despair that came of a love that was never meant to be.

Merope was such a sad character, the world was set up ageist her since she was born. 
Beautiful interoperation of her, I find she's a heard character for many artist to tackle because artist ether draw as looking pretty, or ugly.

this is absolutely amazing . Mérope is so tragic , she is one of my fav characters ! Great art !
hmm ive definitely looked through your art before, i recognise this. ah well. this is amazing but way too pretty for merope, it looks nothing like her. she is supposed to be the physical product of inbreeding.

oh wow, this is absolutely beauitful! Merope doesn't get enough love in the HP fandom in my opinion. She is the villain's mother, after all!

Did you know the reason Voldemort can't love is because he was conceived under a love potion?

This is lovely and interesting since I don't often see Merope in the fanart or in fanfiction. Well done.

Gorgeous. Merope is someone who's quite important but never really given enough attention.
