It's not over, I still have the books and will reread them as many times I want to. But it's hard to believe I just read the last book. The end. Of course I'm terribly emotional, for seven years Harry has had a very important part in my life and though it feels as if I just woke up from a very long dream I know they will never be really gone. I'll keep drawing the for the books, rereading and revisiting all the places, all those moments which are now treasured memories too.I loved Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, it was better than I could imagine, sometimes surprising, lovely, funny, terrifying, heartbreaking and once I just couldn't believe my eyes. I will reread it again, starting today, and probably again and again, to keep me going with the chapter drawings, to keep stepping back in that wonderful world. I'll probably draw a lot of those I'm mourning, I still can't believe the cruelties in their lives. But I'm very happy with the ending, it's the very best! :)I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry, it's over and I wish I could sit in the great hall and share this feeling with a lot of other fans, to mourn the dead and bring back memories. I hope in many years time I'll be just as fond of Harry as I am now, and as I have been for years. ♥
I agree about Dhm and the books in general, and about being sad it's over. The finality hasn't hit me, but the great thing about fiction is it doesn't have to be final. Not for readers with imaginations.But I'm glad you're going to keep drawing. There'd better be some Snape/Lily stuff ;-)
Oh, but there will be! ^_^ I'm still shocked about it all, as soon as I have more time again (busy job at the moment) I'll have to draw some parts of this book, to get over it, or to get back into it.
I agree about DH, rather. Oops!
I'm too stunned by it all, I must draw Snape again soon.
I adore the way you draw Snape! I look forward to seeing what you will post!*hugs* We are all so sad about Severus. :(
Yes, please.Can't believe... Everything.But you art really is beautiful. And I feel the need to mourn the dead too.
♥It's very hard to believe that that's the last book-release party I'll ever go to, that there's no more wondering about the next bit of canon, and of course mourning for the dead, both those that made an impact on Harry and those who were thrown in to be extra names, more dead, to add to the senselessness of war. But at the same time I do feel very satisfied that this book fit with the rest, that I could close it and say, yeah, that was Harry Potter to me.And now, of course, I can do whatever *I* want to with it, and that's wonderful in its own way, too, to have this forum of fandom to play in even after the rush has gone by.Knowing how I still love the books I loved at five, fifteen, and twenty-five, I think I'll still love these when I'm forty-five and seventy-five. ♥
:) I'll always love Harry Potter tooStill, the last book. It'll take some time to get over it, I'd grown used to waiting for the next one. *sigh*
I agree. DH was touching, moving and a fitting ending.I look forward to all of your art and, yes, the Snape stuff in particular. <3
*hugs back* thank you so much :)
I feel very much the same way. I'm already starting to read it again.I'm thrilled to hear you'll be drawing a lot! There were so many scenes I thought would make amazing works of art. :)
your feelings are doubtless echoed throughout fandom. i feel like harry, after sirius fell through the veil and fandom will be my mirror erised.
