A Litttle Light Reading by sycamoreleaf A Litttle Light Reading by sycamoreleaf

It is with shame that after watching the "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows p2" movie... I've come down with a pretty bad case of HP nostalgia... :( Alas, that meant that I had seven wonderful books waiting for me on the very top shelf waiting to be re-read as well as endless supplies of fanfiction and oh, we must not forget the movies :D

My parents are probably considering getting me professional help...

But my possible removal from my home by the men in white coats aside, it has struck me that despite my apparent obsession love for Harry Potter has been going on for like, over ten years of my life, I have yet to draw even one single fanart of it. Shame on me... Which is why after being particularly motivated by Alan Rickman's simply spectacular performance (that man is so awesome... and twice as more for making my favorite charter in the books even more awesome!) here's Professor Severus Snape (design shamelessly adapted from ~yukipon's phenomenal works ... yes well... ahem... the art IS colossal... ehem... wile reading in the teacher's lounge.

The scene is inspired by a most beautiful work of fanfiction called "A Little Light Reading" written by Dullastacks - in which Professor Snape finds a jolly little books called Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone llamas to whoever guesses what chapter he's probably at right about now ;) , but story which most sadly is no longer on the internet :( (if anyone can find a copy of it though, do feel free to share)

And yes, those are Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff banners behind him... I meant it as a joke ^^;

Mad girl, off to devour more Harry Potter-related awesomness, over and out.

Great piece! I feel good when I look at it, not nostalgic or sad, rather cheerful:-)
