Brilliant, and well worth the wait. Portrait!Snape was excellent, and I really liked Ron wearing his Weasley jumper!!

Goodness, it took a damn long time. *is embarrassed* I'm glad you enjoyed what finally came about! ^__^ I definitely had a lot of fun with drawing Snape and trying to get his face juuuussst right. And yeah, I was wondering if Ron would wear the jumper and then I thought, hey, it's cold in the castle.

*howls* I adore Snape!

What a great take on the prompt. Wonderful job. So much fun.
14th-Oct-2008 03:06 am (UTC)
Awww, thank you! Snape kept me greatly entertained and challenged since I wasn't really all that familiar with his voice, if you will. The prompt wouldn't let me get away with anything shorter. *sweatdrop* And thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed!

What a spectacular end to the fest!

Dear mods, with this extra art you are truly spoiling us!

14th-Oct-2008 03:07 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you so much! And as for spoiling, the mods really spoil me by letting me post so late in the game. I felt really bad about that! I swear, I gotta stop trying to take on big stories, at least for a little while. So glad you enjoyed!
12th-Oct-2008 04:26 pm (UTC)
That was really fun. I loved how you pictured every character!

Great job :)
14th-Oct-2008 03:14 am (UTC)
Thank you! I didn't have that much practice with Snape or Fawkes prior to this comic, although I always had a fuzzy image of what they looked like in my head. Glad you enjoyed!

Great story and lovely pics! I really liked the different colouring, depending on the mirror- or non-mirror-scenes. Snape and Fawkes were too cute!

Thank you for sharing!

Hee, thank you so much! I was rather excited when I came up with that idea with the coloring and I'm glad it worked out. And Snape and Fawkes were really fun to work with here.

I'm just grateful the mods didn't toss me out on my ear for being so late! XD So glad you enjoyed the comic!
12th-Oct-2008 04:32 pm (UTC)
Oh, I love this very much. It is brilliant and hilarious and just wonderful. :)
14th-Oct-2008 03:16 am (UTC)
Awww, thank you! I'm always happy to see something I've been stuck on for a long while finally come together. So glad you enjoyed!
12th-Oct-2008 04:34 pm (UTC)
Awesome! I love it! :) Your Snape is hilarious! I really liked the interaction between Draco, Ron, and Hermione. The idea of Fawkes keeping Snape company warms my heart. :)
14th-Oct-2008 03:20 am (UTC)
Awww, thank you so much! I'm really glad I didn't mess up Snape! I was a bit nervous because I really love that guy and I hardly ever do anything with him. Draco's interaction with Ron and Hermione was really fun to play out and I love how the relationship between Fawkes and Snape kept growing as I worked on this. So glad you enjoyed!
12th-Oct-2008 04:34 pm (UTC)
Oh, I love everything about this. ♥ The tale was wonderful and I love your creative use of Portrait!Snape.
14th-Oct-2008 03:22 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you! ^__^ I knew Snape would want a portrait down in the dungeons for peace/quiet as well as possible mentoring of future Slytherins so he'd be in a perfect place to hear Harry going to the room with the Mirror. Plus, it was really fun to torture him. XD
12th-Oct-2008 04:36 pm (UTC)
Absolutely wonderful! ♥♥♥♥
A delightful end to a wonderful fest. Thank you!
14th-Oct-2008 03:23 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you so much!!! I'm just really glad the mods were so gracious to let me slide in. *sweatdrop* I'm glad you enjoyed the comic!!!
12th-Oct-2008 04:37 pm (UTC)
*goes back to read again*

That was fabulous, hon! The difference between miserable!Harry at the beginning and frisky!Harry at the end is wonderful! And Draco's simple, "I'll do it." FTW!!! Bravo, hon! Perfect!
14th-Oct-2008 03:26 am (UTC)
Oh! *hugs* I'm so glad you enjoyed this! If you'd like to see the final final version I posted at rahly_furverted, it's over here.

And I'm really glad I didn't screw up that shift in Harry's state of mind. There was just so much to get through for him to get to Frisky!Harry that I was a bit daunted, truth be known! And yes. That "I'll do it." was something that actually survived from the first story draft. (I went through at least 3 of those.) *sweatdrop*
12th-Oct-2008 04:38 pm (UTC)
Absolutely brilliant!!

Your talent and humour are top notch!!!

Thanks for the morning giggle!!
14th-Oct-2008 03:27 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you so much! I always worry that my humor will not work out all that well so I'm very pleased it worked out for you! So glad you enjoyed the comic!
12th-Oct-2008 04:39 pm (UTC)
*ROFL* love it. especially love snape. and fawkes.
14th-Oct-2008 03:28 am (UTC)
Oh thank you! So glad you enjoyed the comic! I definitely had fun seeing the development of Snape's interaction with Fawkes as I worked on the comic!
12th-Oct-2008 04:39 pm (UTC)
I am FULL OF LOVE for this!!! Everything's perfect.
14th-Oct-2008 03:30 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you so much! I'm really glad you enjoyed it, although I was pressed for time to make it before this fest ended.

If you'd like to see the final final version I posted at rahly_furverted, it's over here. You don't have to comment again or anything. I just thought you'd like to see. ^__^

Again, I'm glad you liked!
12th-Oct-2008 04:39 pm (UTC)

I love you. God, that's perfect. I have a silly grin on my face now. And yay for Portrait!Snape. :D
14th-Oct-2008 03:31 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the comic!!! I have to admit, it was really fun to torture Snape! XD
