In Memoriam, SPOILER!

current mood: sad



Here are some of my older drawings, as a salute to Snape, sorry, Professor Snape.

I'll post more later, and maybe a new one as soon as I can draw one. I'm really sorry he had to go this way, I was very fond of him and his death really hurts. I hope he had a good time at Hogwarts, at least his house loved him for who he was and appreciate his taments and sense of humor. I hope they burry him at Hogwarts too.

Cheers, mate. To my favourite Potions master.

severus

In the end he turned out to be just as horribly epically tragic a personage as I'd expected. Poor Snape.

True, he even died for nothing because Voldemort and Albus were both wrong. Maybe it's a nice thought he was looking in Harry's Lily's eyes. (but JK Rowling couldn't have pushed the knife any deeper.)

I really love your artwork.
re-posting your art made me bawling all over again and grinning at the same time
(as did the whole "the Prince's tale" chapter)...

well, since HBP I had been sure that Snape will die - but it totally shocked me,
how unspectacular and (sort of) unnoticed his death by Nagini's poison had been.
worse: in the end his death had been unnecessary, because he hadn't been the master
of the wand.
T_T

I expected it too, and I sort of kept cool all the way trough his death until Harry dove into the pensieve, after that I just couldn't take it, it would have been more gentle to cut my heart out with Bella's knife. Poor Snape, I really liked him.

the only positive thing I get out of the book right now is that Snape is free now,
even though he deserved more and really happy years.

but after (DD) "After all this time ?" (SS) "Always." he just wouldn't be happy since Lily
is still dead, the memory of his betrayal would still be there and I dunno-what-horrid memories
he collected during the last years with the resurrected Voldemort will haunt him, too.

at least we have the fandom who will take good care of Sev with words and graphics...

What a sad life he led. Such a waste of a brilliant mind, he could have been so much more. Poor Snape.

Harry and Snoopy

I hope he had some good years at Hogwarts when Voldemort was in Albania and Harry far from his existence. I wish his Potions book wouldn't have been burned either. It's all terriby sad.

Oh dear yes, his book. :(

I apologize for commenting like this (anonymously), but I dont have an LJ.
I've been in love with you fanart for quite some time now and just want to tell you how grateful I am that you draw these pictures.
That dead Snape one was already one of my favourites but seeing it together with the others now makes me feel like crying all over again :´( Oh dear, they're all breaking my heart now, his bruise and how he's looking so earnest and concentrated building that snowman.
Your pictures always touch me.

Thanks Mnem <3

grumpy snape by snitchnip_chill



I'd say I'll miss the old bastard, but I know he's not gone -- he'll live on in the hearts and minds of fandom, as well as our fan works.

The snowman one utterly melted me, though. *hugs wee snape*

Such lovely art. The snowman is too cute, and Ron and Harry in front of the mirror cracks me up. Poor Snape.

I think Snape's death was the hardest for me to read, because i saw it coming. I knew as soon as Voldemort pulled him from the battle that he was going to kill him. And then i had to read and wait, and then watch it happen. And it just rips at me that his death was unnecessary! Not that the others were, but still. I hope someone, maybe Harry, went back for him and gave him a proper burial. I'm not sure where he'd like best, probably Hogwarts, but i hope he's finally found peace now. He can see Lily again, and Albus, and he can argue with James and Sirius to his hearts content~ I'm going to miss him so! TT____TT

I can't find the drawing you did of Snape watching Lily and James. I know you posted it, but I can't find it.

I'm feeling a bit bereft, too. Snape. . . I guessed both what would happen to him and why but it still hurts.

violet - quiet

I love that, despite how much Rowling has said that she detests Snape, she gave his past proper respect. That she did not take the easy way out by having him redeem himself in saving Harry, but making it clear that he has been redeeming himself his whole adult life and it has been incredibly painful.

Snape is finally made human in Harry's eyes.

♥ for your tribute.

i have to say that i have spent the last few hours surfing your gallery and your art is.......wonderful, although wonderful is a small word....i simply cannot find the words to describe it....it is so warm and each and every one of your pictures told me a story of their own....
it was like reading a fairy tale :)

Dear Snow Flakes,

those are very kind words. I wouldn't have made this fan art if it weren't for all the nice comments from other Potter fans. Thank you :)

Read entire journal!

I don't belong to LG, but I found your journal by chance and have clicked through every picture through the day. I've enjoyed every drawing, painting, and sketch, from the hilarious (and often wise) little comics to your tributes to the masters. I only wish all your work was consolidated in one place.

Thanks for making my day.
