Dear Harry Potter fanfic authors, let's talk color theory, shall we?

Harry Potter has green eyes (just like his mother).

And you so love putting him in green.

To bring out the color of his eyes.

Only that don't work.

Really.

Want to bring out the color of his eyes? Put him in red (for traditional color theory) or magenta. Magenta is the true complement, but red is close enough. You see, contrast makes colors more noticeable, makes them "pop." If Harry is flushed (with arousal, embarrassment, too much niacin), if he's sunburnt, hell, if he's gone and painted his face red to support Gryffindor, his eyes are going to look really really green.

Really.
