Art: If Regulus Black were a Tarot Card...  
Okay, so I finished the drawing.

Remember those drawings of Bella and Narcissa? Well, this is where it started, really. I've seen a couple people who have done Harry Potter tarot decks, and I was always a little put off by where they put who in the decks. I realize that a lot of it's interpretation, but you don't necessarily have to pair up cards (like The Empress and The Emperor), and I suppose a lot has to do with fanon. Also, notice the pretty hands! (Full view is best)


I always felt that Regulus represented The Fool best. Because the fool isn't necessarily foolish; what he does is he trusts. At the beginning of the story (because that's what the Major Arcana and the order they're in represents), The Fool (0) trusts bad or misleading advice and guidance. By the end what he's trusting is his own knowledge and what he's learned about the world. In both cases he moves unhesitatingly forward, first out of ignorance and then out of enlightenment.

Although the Fool traditionally carries a satchel of his things for traveling, these things seemed all the Regulus needed for his journey.

The juxtaposition of the locket and the death eater mask against his heart is just wonderful.

Glad you've finished this! It represents Regulus so well. ;_;
