Albus and Scorpius, around 5th year


One thing I didn't like about the end of the book is that there still seem to be so much rivalry and bad feelings between Griffindor house and Slytherin house. After Dumbledore's speech in OotP about inter-house unity I really wanted the houses to mix a bit more. Assuming Albus did end up in Griffindor and Scorpius in Slytherin, I wanted to draw some A/S, a pairing which I'm starting to quite like.  I'd love it if Scorpius was more noble and compassionate than Draco, and Albus just a bit less couragous than Harry.

... I am so glad I wasn't the only one thinking that pairing would be interesting. XD

Gorgeous art, as always. I love the way you've drawn the hair, and the ties! (Especially the Slytherin one.)

Haha, it's basically second generation H/D.

Thanks for looking!

[HP] Sev/Lilly - Always

They're The Harry/Draco Next Generation!

I think you are right about the epilogue and the house rivalry (specially the hate to the slytherins), twenty points from JoKR! D:

I love how you imagine their personalities, Scorpius more noble and Albus less couragous, they can fix the mistakes of their fathers!

First time here, I'm a lurker beacuse my english sucks xD (I'm Spanish) GORGEOUS art as always, really! Great job!

Although their kids resemble the parents in appearance, it'd be so fun if their personalities had striking differences.

Your English doesn't suck! Es muy bueno! (sorry if that's wrong!) Thanks for looking!

This is awesome. :D I'm getting to love this pairing now, too - one of the few good things to come out of the epilogue, imo.

And very agreed about the House rivalries . . . really, I want to write/read fic where they finally get over that crap now that Voldemort's gone. I might undertake an A/S fic under that pretext, actually. :)

Posted at: July 28th, 2007 10:27 pm (UTC)

Please do! I need to look for some A/S fics actually..

Thank you!

Eeeeee, that's gorgeous!

And I totally agree with you re: house loyalty -- I was so pissed that JKR had the entire Slytherin house clear out before that final battle. I mean, WTF?

Posted at: July 28th, 2007 10:29 pm (UTC)

I know! I mean, is there really not one single Slytherin who is capable of some good? :(

Albus Severus

I love this! I especially like the fact that you haven't given Albus any glasses -- he looks like Harry, but he's not a Harry clone, as most people seem to want to think.

♥♥♥ Excellent job.

Thank you! I've always imagined Albus not to have glasses :)

Good to see the next generation continues a long venerated tradition between the Potter and the Malfoy families.

Haha, well Harry did save Draco's life - he can't get rid of the Potters that easily.

Thanks for looking!

Through a long series of linking, I managed to stumble across this picture. I guess you could say I was lurking, and I'm squeeing non stop, now. Just the way you drew the arch of Scorpius' neck...urgh, it gives me shivers. Gorgeous picture!

Thanks so much! I'm glad you like Scorpius' neck :P

This piece is just gorgeous. I love the way that Scorpius's stance is so relaxed and really well drawn. The lead up to a kiss is always the thing that makes it sexier. It's like your picture is moving in slow motion. I keep expecting to see the kiss. I agree with your musings on Albus and Scorpius.
For some reason, I always seem to picture a similar pose to this one in my head when I imagine a kiss, no matter what pairing it is.

I'm really glad you like it - and I agree with you about the lead up to a kiss being sexier. Leaves more to the imagination ;)

Thanks for taking the time to review!

Oh, this is lovely -- really evocative of many possible stories about the two of them.

After looking at your gorgeous James & Sirius illustration earlier I've been poking around in your great fanart and making high-pitched exclamations as I bookmark nearly everything. :D I didn't want to flood you with comments, but I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your work.
