Chest Monster

So apparently it's Fan Art week or something?

Here's a scribble I thought of this morning. Harry's "Chest Monster" from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J K Rowling. The personification of his sudden and overwhelming passion for Ginny Weasley. Or monsterification.

It seems I imagine Harry's 'Chest' Monster as a wyvern? I hadn't ever given thought to the Chest Monster before I did this train-of-thought scribble, it just turned into this pseudo-mediaeval scenery... because Harry is sooooo noble and valiant and chivalrous. And the wyvern's red... I hesitated, but thought that if I made it green or something, it would just be cowardly. You know what I'm talking about. ;)

Picture one: When the Monster makes its first roaring appearance. Harry's noble conscience and general common sense battle it down. Note here that it's not Sir Harry's Lady Love Ginevra who's looking on, but a wrathful Ron, since Ron seems to be the biggest reason Harry doesn't want to act on his passions.

Picture two: somewhere at the back of my mind there's a quotation from the book about the dormant Monster sniffing the air hopefully when Harry learns that Ginny's single again.

Picture three: YAY. Whatever's going on inside Harry's ... chest when they finally get together.

The middle frame is my favorite. The dragon is absolutely adorable all curled up and tucked away and I think his tilted head due to curiosity about Ginny's relationship status is spot on. Good job!

Yeah, I was always too cynical about the creature being in his chest. Belly, I would have thought! *innocent whistle*

Yeah, soooo heroic. At least he messes up every now and then, and yells.
