Snape's Final Moments by Murielle Snape's Final Moments by Murielle
Title kinda explains it all right? Yes, good. ok...1) No spoiler warnings cuz darnit...it has been a long time...if you haven't read HP7 yet....it isn't my fault.

2) What is it with pictures of Snape and turning into toadstools that sit on the top of my work queue? I drew this like...right after the book came out. D: Even though I thought it was a bit murf and wanted a better death scene for him.

3) I loved this when I sketched it...now....not so much. :/ That is what happens when you let things toadstool. The things you like start decaying and the things you don't like just fester. DON'T LET THINGS TOADSTOOL! D< EVAR. DON'T SIT ON THINGS! DO THEM! DO THEM! DONE! So yeah, it could be better and much to the worse, I know it. Sorry. I am tired of it. Oh, but I still think that outfit is smecxy and it will show up again.

/rant. *goes off into a corner of unpleasantness to beat her bad mood with a stick until it goes away*

Snape, that dumb snake and the incredibly disparaging bubble of doom all belong to JKRowlings

This is really nicely done - straight to faves! I like his frock, it's rather Robin Hood. But what's with the nails?? They're so long and pointy he could (should) have scratched Nagini to death! ;)

Thank you very much!

I have long nails and I guess it kinda just translates itself onto some characters when I draw them. XD

i sobbed my eyes out both when I read it, and when I saw it at the midnight premiere. He will ALWAYS be my lovely Severus, my favorite of the noble OotP.

His outfits are so fun to make up! XD

I don't think anyone involved was happy with THIS outcome.

Yeah, most of the time, people just draw him in his typical black robes, and you put him in kickass Headmaster robes.
And once again, Nagini has proven that she is the worst animal in all of nonexistence. :censored:

XD Black robes are cool and all, but no one wears the same thing ALL the time! I am glad you like these.

But it just makes you wonder...
What if Snape has, like, MULTIPLE Black robes and crap? yeesh, I'd hate to be his wardrobe; I'd go nuts.

I'll be interested in seeing how Hollywood attempts to make his death scene seem cool. I think it'll be a Sirius Black all over again. It looks silly no matter what you do to it, though you did a good job making it less so. I think J.K. could stand to watch a few horror movies. You finally finished it! I remember it when it was just a sketch/drawing.

D: I KNOW. It wouldn't be so bad if it were not for the silly BUBBLE. And yeah...it is done. Finally. Woot. *gets curtained*

I will say though, they are KINDA SORTA supposed to be KIDS books...so you can't have an awesome GORE-FEST like you and I would like to....though I am coming up with a fun idea...that I will have to run by you...elsewhere....>D

Okay, no gore fest, but die with dignity that's all I'm asking. Seriously, where's the dignity of a bubble and a window? Even Dumbledore's death left something to be desired.

Soaring off a tower? naw...that is ok. He gets points for landing spread eagle and not as a indescernable pile of mush with bits of bone and clothing sticking out oddly.

I thought she said something about him twitching when he hit the ground sort of like a bug... Maybe not. I haven't re-read any of them so memory is failing as I have a tendancy to block out things I don't like.

Oh my gosh... I read "The Elder Wand"(DH) several times to finally understand what was happening and now this came up and I suddenly feel sad that Snape, who was a gift of character for seven books in a row, recieved a horrible way to die... WE MISS YOU!!! D>

And ya know...this may sound odd or maybe OoC....but I really think that Snape was a slick dresser. Not much color palette, but good styyyyyle.

Well *I* like it... but I do agree about letting things sit for a long time; you just get sick of them. I'm the same way with writing; I have several half-finished things that I'll probably never complete because I'm bored with them :XD:

Who knows...I might end up liking it again after a month away from it. One never knows with me. XD

I am really bad about letting the colouring part kill my stuff, that is the place things die for me. I draw them, scan them and then they sit, and it goes sour. :s

I was very displeased with the whole Snape thing in the last book. Very much so. ;n;

Thanks for the fave! ;D And yup, I have gotten lazy and am thanking you in comments. >.>;

Me too. Snape was my favorite. -_-

You're quite welcome, my friend, and you don't need to apologize or anything. No thanking necessary when all I'm doing is telling the truth and enjoying wonderful artwork.
