I verbally proclaimed my love for JKR so many times when I first read this chapter. I think this is my second favorite chapter of the entire series, only being out done by the awesomeness that is Beyond the Veil in OotP. So um..yeah. I drew a lot.
Well I was going to do a sequential thing for the fox and
Oh yeah whatever Bella, "an auror" pfft. You just like to kill things that move.
I like how I draw poses RIGHT on top of others... O_x
You know what Bella was really thinking...
Oh Sirius, you're so easy to take pot shots at. You know.. being dead and all.
"Let go, Bella!" snarled Narcissa, and she drew a wand from beneath her cloak, holding it threateningly in the other's face.
Bella merely laughed.
"Cissy, your own sister? You wouldn't--"
Yes Bella, she would, especially when you're the obnoxious sister that came back from the DoM when the hot hubby did not.
Ok, and the whole saving Draco part too.And yeah yeah I know there was no smoke but I like drawing it so there.
Ah and here's the picture that everyone and their mom has drawn.
"Severus," she said in a strained whisper. "May I speak to you? It's urgent."
Alrighty kids, this is the house and room that I saw.
And now I went back and read the description and it's totally wrong. Uhhhh well whatever. Pretend it's right.
"Narcissa!" he said, in a squeaky voice. "And Bellatrix! How charming--"
The TEETH x)). I know. I'm sorry. But that's totally how I picture him.
"Wormtail will get us drinks, if you'd like them," said Snape. "And then he will return to his bedroom."
"I am not your servant!" he squeaked, avoiding Snape's eye.
L.O.L. How could anyone not love Snape? HE'S FRIGGIN HILARIOUS.
hahahaaa Yeah.. I miiight draw Snape too hot. OH WELL :D
"Yes, indeed, most admirable," Snape said in a bored voice. "Of course, you weren't a lot of use to him in prison, but the gesture was undoubtably fine --"
I DIED when I read that. DIED. AHAHAHAHA. All I could think was "SNAPE. WHAT ARE YOU DOING?? PRESSING THE CRAZY WOMAN'S BUTTONS AAHAHHAAHA?!@@q721!!!"
And Snape is just having a right jolly old time, isn't he?
Yes that's drawn on notebook paper. My Government notes actually.
Oh look a literal metaphor ha.
|Meh I never did add a background.. |
"Gesture!" she shrieked; in her fury she looked slightly mad.
"That was not my fault!" said Bellatrix, flushing. "The Dark Lord has, in the past, entrusted me with his most precious -- if Lucius hadn't --"
Narcissa's original retort was "The only thing my husband is guilty of is being one fine piece of ass!" but JKR unfortunately had to revise that.
No but seriously, I love this part for so many reasons.. the obvious one being that Narcissa has been patiently waiting in silent anguish for Bella to finish her off-topic blabbing and Snape-hating, but the second Bella starts to put blame on Lucius, whether he deserves it or not, Narcissa is right there with "STFU H0R" which made my inner Malfoylove fangirl do cartwheels of glee. The second reason this part makes me laugh is because it's actually Bella's fault that the kids got away in the DoM. She was being all uppity of course and had to go and disobey orders and shoot a spell at the kids, which Lucius had to deflect, which sent the spell into the prophecies, giving Harry the idea to "smash shelves" and therefore, escape. And I think it's possible that Narcissa has a good idea that if it was anyone's fault, it was probably her more-than-reckless sister's.
"I -- I think you are the only one who can help me, I have no where else to turn. Lucius is in jail and..."
She closed her eyes and two large tears seeped from beneath her eyelids.
Fangirls: *totally sympathyzing with the lack-of-Lucius angst*
"The Dark Lord has forbidden me to speak of it." Narcissa continued, her eyes still closed.
blah blah blah Snape says 'well y'best not be speakin!'--
Narcissa gasped as though he had doused her with cold water. Bellatrix looked satisfied for the first time since she entered the house.
Speaking of being in jail... let's check on the husbands. (Bella's like "Who..?") They seem to be in good mental health.
And so begins Narcissa's lil' conniption.
When Snape said nothing, Narcissa seemed to lose what little self-restraint she still possessed. Standing up, she staggered to Snape and seized the front of his robes. (hey.. vests are robes. hush you.) Her face close to his, her tears falling onto his chest, she gasped, "You could do it. You could do it instead of Draco, Severus. You would succeed, of course you would, and he would reward you beyond all of us --"
This part sort of makes me laugh, because I sort of imagine her voice getting higher and faster, and her mouth twitching with a desperate, mad half smile.. a total Black family crazy moment x). Snape's like 'Whoa whoa, hands and tears off the Armani.'
Oh oh and this is one of the parts that makes me wonder why people think that Voldemort is going to like, punish/kill Draco for not killing Dumbledore. Why would Narcissa first ask Snape to do it if Voldemort would kill Draco if he didn't do it himself? And Snape goes on to say "I think he intends me to do it in the end, but he is determined that Draco should try first." Voldemort just wants Dumbledore dead, he dosen't really care how. If Draco dies trying, then *oopsie* teehee, sorry Lucius, but if he survives, then why kill him off? Draco DID make himself useful and showed he is capable of acheiving something and didn't just curl up in a ball and cry or run away, Voldemort is going to keep him around. Never hurts to have a new, young servant. I mean, his original servants are all like, 40+ years old, after all xD.
Speaking of keeping their big mouth shut..
BELLA. STOP BEING SO FUNNY OMG. I can just hear Bella saying this like "Meh" over Narcissa's "UHHUHUHUGHHGGGHH..!"
Voldy: So Bella, feel like tossin' some sons into this here volcano today?
Bella: MMKAY :D *tosses son*
...Bella has very voluminous hair here.
"You should be proud!" said Bellatrix ruthlessly. "If I had sons, I would be glad to give them up to the service of the Dark Lord!"
Snape stooped, seized her by the arms, lifted her up, and steered her back onto the sofa. He poured her more wine and forced the glass into her hand.
Alright kids, you know why Snape agrees to make the vow? No, not because he's friggin in love with Narcissa (or Draco lmfao), but simply because he's *surprise* not a completely heartless bastard. A mother (one that he is aquainted with, nonetheless) comes to him because he happens to be the only person that can save her stupid son from dying. He knows that maybe, maybe he actually has the power to do something good for the sake of doing something good.
Ok this next one, I swear, is exactly how it looks in my head when I read this.
Bellatrix's mouth fell open. Snape lowered himself so that he was kneeling opposite Narcissa. Beneath Bellatrix's astonished gaze, they grasped right hands.
This is probably a big part of why I find Bellatrix so entertaining. Her mannerisms and expressions in my mind are just.. the most hilarious things ever.
And then the chapter ends.
Sooo...uhh... what happends after that?
