Best friends? - DeathlyHallows by ellaine Best friends? - DeathlyHallows by ellaine
As you see, you convinced me to finish the sketches (thank you very much - everyone who made the effort to write a few words). I wanted to start with the easier and more happy picture, but I'm not sure if it turned out really happy. Well, let's say - a happy moment in a sad story (I've been wondering if Lily was actually the only person who ever saw Severus smiling? EVER?;p).

Looking for the quote I've read the whole chapter for like the third time... I'm hopeless...;p. The Mirror of Erised will be done next, so stay tuned and enjoy this one for now.

Very nice. Actually in my head canon Lily is the only person who saw him smile and he is relaxed in her presence. In my stories Severus has big social problems. He is honest but blunt and tactless, which alienates him from just about everyone (including the nicer Slytherin students in his year). Lily is his only friend (I don't count the Death Eaters in training as "friends").

I just love them together. My favourite HP pairing.

Lovely picture. The colours are so perfectly seventies, too.

A wonderful piece of art and Severus is just perfect, just as I imagine him.And Lily's hair colour is nice not reddish as everyone do it. Love the sepia aspect.

This is my favourite kind of scene with Snape, when he is so relaxed and content :)

Why does Lily have brown eyes? Otherwise, good pic.

Because it's supposed to be a sepia photo :D It changes colours a bit, you know...

:eager: The colours, the style. When I remember something really good from my past I get this nice feeling --> get it from this pic, too, even if it's not my past. Love this picture! :clap:

Other people doubtless saw ironic smiles, cynical smiles, bitter smiles, malicious smiles, but Lily may be the only one to see a happy smile -- with the possible exception of his mother, when he was very young.
