Lily and Severus by DeficientAtLife Lily and Severus by DeficientAtLife
Okay. It's harder to step away from Fanart than I thought.

But I figured, why not. I've never put up a Harry Potter piece before, and I've got tons of original stuff planned out, so a little fanart here and there can't hurt. Besides, it's technically a gift for my dear friend, Katie, who is so obsessed with the books that if JK Rowling had pulled a Robert Jordan and died before completing the last book, then Katie would have been the obvious choice to finish it.

She definitely wouldn't have killed Fred, that's for sure.

I am quite pleased with how this turned out. I got a little lazy with the shading by the end, because I was determined to submit this before going to bed, but I still think it looks all right.

Oh, and this is not necessarily a romantic thing, at least on Lily's part. If you'd like to interperet it as that, be my guest, but it's also just an indepth, and happy conversation between childhood friends at Hogwarts, before it all went to hell. I think we can all relate to that in some way... Maybe not the Hogwarts part. The Snape chapter in the seventh book was my absolute favorite.

Yes, I'm a closet Harry Potter fan, sue me.

I like how this focuses on their friendship when it was good and happy. Dammit, I wish they hadn't stopped being friends.

Love it! Lily's entire outfit is cute. Even though it's not exactly how the Hogwarts uniform looks, I'd definitely wear it. ^^ I love the vines and Sev's hair! Great job!

Me too. She must have made him very happy for him to love her so dearly.
I would really love for JK to write some of their happier times together. Lily was his friend for a reason, and not just because he was the on;y wizard she knew at the time.

You're quite welcome. I like the details of the Slytherin emblem on Sev and the Gryffindor emblem on Lily the most, I think. Most people just include the ties.

Hey, thanks for noticing. I think I wanted to stress how odd it would look to other students who saw them there, by making them contrast as much as possible.
