Going to Hogwarts while Harry, Ron, and Hermione caused chaos (and saved the wizarding world) was probably the worst. Simple activities like going to a Qudditch game or even taking your History of Magic final turned into yet another drama about Harry Potter. It's these feelings that one artist is turning into hilarious comics.

Based in Brussels, artist Emily McGovern, has a comic series called "My Life as a Background Slytherin." In it, she details what it must've been like to go to Hogwarts at the same time as Harry Potter. Remember when Hermione set fire to Snape's cloak in the first book? Emily's character in the comic spots her doing it! Those "Potter Stinks" badges? Totally Emily's idea as a background Slytherin. McGovern shows off her comics on her Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook pages, and while people love them there, they are also going viral on Reddit.

See some of our favorites below and be sure to follow her to read more of her comics. You might even find two that document life as a background Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff student!
