HP: An End Has A Start by Dunland HP: An End Has A Start by Dunland
This is supposed to be set after Sirius discovers that James, his best friend and "foster brother," has been murdered along with Lily in Godric's Hollow. Sort of a last goodbye before he goes off to get framed and imprisoned for the betrayal that led to their death. ;)

Could I be any worse at drawing glasses? I doubt it.

So. This makes me almost cry so bad. I've recently developed an obsession with James. Mostly because of this slashly RP I'm doing with a James. I play Sev. Don't ask. It's actually pretty damn realistic...but that's not the point. So I've grown remarkably fond of him over the course of it and I swear to god. I'm rereading the books and unfortunately...I was on the 3rd one. I almost cried like a billion times. Particularly when they were explaining Sirius' back story. It's so hard to just not feel horrible everyone involved.

James died. That kills me enough...on it's own. I love him so much that just thinking about it...ohmigod. So if that's not enough.

You move on to Sirius...and I can't even imagine...what it would be like to lose someone that you're so close to. When I picture Sirius/James relationship. It's otherworldly. They're closer than brothers to me. And for Sirius to find him dead. Baww. And for Sirius to be blamed for it. BAWW. And for Sirius to go to prison for 12 years for it?! D:

Then there is Remus...who not only lost his best friend...but is lead to believe that his 'other' best friend did it. Plus he thought he lost Peter too. Remus...he just lost everyone he had -whine-. The three people who made his crappy life incredible...and in one stroke they were all gone. I can't even imagine the misery he went through.

I know I'm stating obvious things that everyone realized on their own...but it's like...these simple facts have been rolling through my head for a week or two now and every time I just feel like crrrrying.

And your picture is a BEAUTIFUL depiction of it all. There's so much emotion...and ahh. I can't even put into words how much I love it. I'm just going to pretend James is sleeping though. That way, I don't burst into tears. Because I'm probably going to otherwise.

Anyways. I'm sorry for rambling. I know this picture is old and you probably don't care...but I do :D

Oh, this is so sad, yet so beautiful. I was speechless for a while. I always thought that the story of the Marauders was kind off tragic; in a way that, at the end of the HP-series, no Marauder is left. They're all dead. And they all died, with the exeption of Peter, at a "turning point" in their lives. James and Remus only had their sons for a short time and Sirius may have finally got cleared for everything.
Maybe I think too much with this xD.

Beautiful drawing by the way ^^.

Aw, thank you so much! :aww: I've also always thought the same thing as you about the Mauraders and the tragedy in the fact that not a single one of them is left alive at the end of the series. I'd say that Peter, too, died at a turning point, though, seeing as what killed him was essentially his attempt to do what was right rather than save his own skin for once. Well, maybe not a turning point as much as an unexpected act of kindness... For a given value of "kind," anyway. ;P

Thank you! I have a certain fondness for the bastard as well, and noses are just plain fun to draw. :D

And lol, thanks for clearing that up for me, because I just plain don't remember any more. I always just assumed James had glasses, and it would be natural if his followed the seventies fashion. Harry's awful round glasses were all the rage in the early nineties, after all. :XD:

Actually, now that I think about it I can't remember whether it was actually ever specified in the books that James even wore glasses at all. Maybe it's just been generally assumed that he did because of the constant mentions of Harry's likeness to him... :XD: But, anyway, thank you so much!

This is so heart-wrenching! The thought makes me want to cry. You've drawn this with so much realism! I can very well imagine Sirius' shocked and reluctant acceptance that we see on his face as he leans down trembling to give James a shaky good-bye kiss.

Oh my… This drawing is so very beautiful and so very sad it actually hurts. Amazing work. I love their faces, and even though we know that Sirius, as you said, thinks it kind of sucks, in a way they both look so peaceful to me. While at the same time Sirius does look sad to me as well. The poor this... This is just absolutely amazing, I love it. Love the colors.

Sirius "Kinda thinks that sucks"
That made me laugh so hard I couldn't reply to it for a while.
That was possibly the most simple and amazing way I've ever heard that said.

OMG, Such a powerful scene to draw, actually I don't think that anyone else has drawn this scene, it must have been such a desperation moment for Sirius, and you have depicted his grief beautifully... Thumbs up and a trip to my favorites..

Huh, I honestly can't recall if I've seen this scene drawn before, so I couldn't say, but as I was scanning my brain for ideas and thought about this unseen scene from the books I couldn't not draw it.

Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! :)

Thank you! :) The glasses aren't awful, but they aren't in perspective, and they sit on his face a bit awkwardly, but let's just pretend they're ... distorted by magic? :O_o:
