The Winner...-Deathly Hallows by ellaine The Winner...-Deathly Hallows by ellaine
...takes it all

The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
It's simple and it's plain
Why should I complain.

The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all

I don't wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You've come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence
But you see
The winner takes it all

ABBA - The Winner Takes It All

Somehow I couldn't just get this song out of my mind when I was drawing it... And well, did I say lately that I won't be doing any HP related art? Did I? Really?:D
Looks like it's just stronger than me. But I was waiting so long for this to happen in the books that I simply couldn't miss the opportunity to draw Lily and Severus at last according to canon:D

Whenever I draw Snape, people say, he's handsome *scratches head*. And I try so hard...

And trying out a new technique of which I'm quite fond. Hope you will like it too.

He is handsome, but I don't mind it. You've definitely made his nose big enough. Love that tragic, questioning look on his face. Lovely.
