A Litttle Light Reading by sycamoreleaf A Litttle Light Reading by sycamoreleaf
SHE IS ALIVE!

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.

I haven't read that fanfic but you make me wish I had D:
Snape.. just... Snape *considers making a mad dash for it just in case I could manage to hug/snog/molest him before he reaches his wand*
....
Don't worry about the men in white, they'll be too busy carting me off to nab you ^^;

Your art is beautiful--I love the diamond pane window and creeping ivy. Also the colors and shadows and expression on his face. Poor Snape--I think that in his adult life only books gave him pleasure! :+fav:

When someone told me there was fanart for this I was shocked, and so far beyond touched that someone took the time to create an illustration I don't even have the words for it. This is absolutely amazing. I had to make an account just so I could say thank you.

... and now, I am in the need of a new life, for mine has just ended... from an overdose of happiness... :faint:

*after being resurrected*

Thank you ever so much! You have no idea how much this means to a poor old lass such as myself, especially when coming from such a wonderful author such as yourself :heart: Thank you for A Little Light Reading as well as many other works, but especially for A Little Light Reading. It was a fic I would gladly read again and again and a story which stupid me never got to save on her hard-drive in order for it to be read again

Thank you again and know that you were most welcome! People who write stories such as yours deserve it :thumbsup:

Believe me, those who write are more grateful for the people who read than vice versa. Without you, we'd be shouting into open air.

I can only hope that people who read my novel will be as receptive and wonderful as those who read my fanfics. I love fanfic readers; they're amazing.

The amount of BOSSNESS in this picture is over 9000, by any criteria ever conceived.

Also, the nod to Little light reading is awesome, since that story is awesome and what goes on inside the minds of any Snape fan in the universe as they re-read the books. I enjoyed it and I'm not that much of a fan of Snape as the person who made this (fangirl much?).

Also, I hope the Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff banners are in indication of Snape making the Slytherin choice and hiding in a plce where no one would go looking for him. Seriously, who would think that the head of the Slytherin house would be found anywhere where the Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw gather? No one, that is who!

Also, I guess I should say you rock at painting/colouring/shading/ backgrounds/expressions/details/smirks/pale complexions/Snape/fangirlisms/assorted other art terms I am unaware of, since I'm certain you do rock at all of these things and more, but can't tell, since I'm such a dunce when it comes to these things.

And you're quite right - it's been quite a while, hasn't it? :) On my part it was a lot of university-induces stress and post-finals coma followed by a pretty long recuperation... a.k.a. the usuals ;P

How about you?
