H/G Book 7 kiss


First of all, thanks so much to madeof_stars, hill_, and lunalovepotter for being so wonderful to leave me Valentine's day gifts on my profile. It's a silver lining to a very dark cloud today.

No, it actually has nothing to do with Valentine's Day.

I just found out that a member of my flist died last night. Jenny (or mr_yer_on_fire as we knew her on LJ) passed away at 19. I don't know the reason yet, and I'm afraid to ask. She was funny and sweet - an absolute die-hard MuggleCast fangirl who squeed with me when I got mentioned on the show only a week or so ago - and I've been scrolling through her LJ looking for something, any indication that this was not just some random, inexplicable accident that took her away at such a young age.

I don't know what to do or say.

Just... @#$%.

H/G Book 7 kiss

Art for Jenny.

Some of us lost an LJ friend today, so I did what I normally do, and I consoled myself with doing art. The latest commission I'm working on is doing a number on my wrists, so I mustered up the courage to do some watercolor again - this time, using the paper gifted to me by eliathanis and doing detail work with watercolor pencils gifted to me by madeof_stars. Kind of a collaborative piece, really, if you think about it.

I started drawing it before I knew about what happened to mr_yer_on_fire, but I expedited the painting of it because I liked the thought putting up a picture of Fawkes in memory of Jenny. And of course, there is Harry and Ginny, whose friendship is just starting, and for those of us single on Valentine's Day, it's friendships that count. :)

Title: "It's All Right"
Medium: Watercolor
Rating: G
Characters: Harry, Ginny, Fawkes
Summary: A combination of what happens in the text and the blocking from the film.

"It's all right," said Harry, holding up the diary, and showing Ginny the fang hole, "Riddle's finished." - Chamber of Secrets, Chapter 17
