(#) Cocoa_girl 2009-03-10Are you going to make this a Harry/ Daphne story?
My recommendation for Harry's animagus form is a Coatl. A snake with wings that can change into a any common animal. Coatls have the amazing ability to change on the outside but not the inner personality. I would also think that with Harry ability with occlumancy and putting up 2 minds having one form that can change into 2 completely different forms would reflect that. And naturally Harry also gets the form because he speaks Parceltongue.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”
Coatl. These highly intelligent and magical creatures were once quite common in all temperate and tropical areas of the world. They have many magical talents, including shapeshifting, invisibility, invulnerability to fire and a variety of powerful psychic abilities. When their fangs and scales were found to be quite powerful potions ingredients, the Coatl proceeded to change themselves into non-magical animals and live as if they were not in fact, Coatl simply to protect their species. Their bite is highly toxic, and they can travel long distances magically in a way quite similar to that of Phoenixes and house elves. A name for this method of travel has yet to be decided upon.The number of Coatl in the world is completely a mystery as one has not been sighted in its natural form in several centuries.”
If you deem that to much of a magical animal, then a bird some kind. And as for Daphne then a black panther. Not very unique I know but we don't really know this Daphne very well.
(#) archangelm 2009-03-11Nice start, can't wait for the next update. What's the story on Umbridge & the DA? I like the theory behind Harry being a magical snake animagus, 'coz face it - this is Harry and normal doesn't apply to him. Will this definitely be a Harry-Daphne story? I hope so, can't stand Ginny.
(#) novastorm76 2009-03-11Is the snake supposed to speak parsel? Because it is not in italics.
As for the animagus form: I recommend a large black jaguar; Harry wants to stay in the background and he is fairly powerful, perhaps give him a magical ability to blend into the shadows or something and have the strength and eyesight reflect back to his human shape.
