there are certain characters/families in the Harry Potter canon that are described as having fair or pale skin, the Potter line isn’t one of them. Harry and James both have canonically jet-black untidy hair but no canon ethnicity. Harry has “great skin”.
Just trying to get the message out there, I hope this helps someone
Holy shit I had no idea so many people needed this information - well you know where I am if you need me
also, if someone is having an anxiety or panic attack, ask before you touch them and ask what you can do to help.
