Thank you, Severus by jesterry Thank you, Severus by jesterry
For #Spinners--End Thank you, Severus challenge.

So when I saw 2 Snape DDs at one day:


I felt like I was missing smth important - and yay, really, January 9 is his birthday :w00t:, and knowing my love for birthday presents - here we are :aww:

Though once again, I suck at making happy presents... :tears:
This is the very "thank you"moment in the book that struck me to the bones, with Dumbledore's "Thanks for healing me, Sev, now you've got to kill me".

I'm not sure it was the right hand that got cursed, but oh, whatever.
Strange sense of gratitude is strange :altermind:

AKA, the only time Dumbledore was nice to Snape. Look I love the awesome old kook, I do. But even though Snape's an arse, why did Dumbledore treat him so bad?

what a wonderful painting! I love the emotions in it!
I love the scene in the book as much as the silver doe scene and it makes me always crying, because you can see how much Snape cares for Dumbledore. He hadn't only loved lily - he had loved Albus, too. In a different way of course - like a father figure. And then Albus askes him for to be killed. And Snape gets desperad because of his soul, but at last, he nods and Albus is thankfull. That's the "I trust Severus Snape completly". They are so close to each other in that scene... When I was reading it the fist time I thought really Dumbledore aked him to tear his soul apart. But after reading ist again and again, I've changed my mind. I think Dumbledore is telling him "Severus, we both know you have gone through the darkness oft quiltiness and I understand, what it means, because I have gone there too (Voldemort/lily - Grindelwald/Ariana. An I'm asking you to do that for me, because you are the only one who is able to understand me and has the power to do this (Severus says Harry in the Halfbloodprince that harrys hasn't that power for a unforgiveable!) . And you won't tear your soul apart because you wouldn't kill me out of hate but of love (the splittet soul in a horkrux can be repared by remorse. there is no need for remorse when you only fulfill a last will of a dying man) ." And Severus goes with him, because he understands and his love for Dumbledore is greater than his own sorrows. That's the point, where their friendship starts to go beyond Death an become eternity.

Snape's expression :(
MariaPereira Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012
I'm so amazed by this. He's my favourite character from HP (which is my favourite thing ever!, so you see how important to me he is.)
You touched in the deepest part of my heart when I saw he's face.. so many feelings in his concealing heart, full of sorrow and sadness!! I'm deeply in love with this! Thank you :heart:

You makes me grin broadly...Sure you've nearly missed an important event ( ;) ) but see, you didn't. So great to see your concept and your painting: an excellent idea for the challenge and I especially love their expressions and the colors.

And thanks for the feature in your artist's comment, too!

:iconsniffleplz: omg, it's beautiful Jezzy. I just started reading the books and Snape has already become my favorite character. Sigh, too bad he dies...
I love this part in the movie though, it was really touching and yet horribly cruel. Great depiction.

Wow, awesome use of color and expression here. Glad you were inspired!! :nod:

Beautiful! <3 Severus Snape has always been one of my favourite Harry Potter characters... his depth and complexity astounds me
Gryffgirl Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012
This one is wonderful! I really like Severus' expression (lol--not too much ever surprised him) and the the purple tones. A lot of Snape art uses the stark black, white and grey which is appropriate to the character, but surprisingly the dark violet works! :D

This is beautiful and a great birthday present :heart:
I like Severus. He has always been an interesting character. Killing Dumbledore would mean killing the only person who believed in him, even though he would die anyway. It's sad :<
