I've been working on this for a week solid. It is for something important but not as important as say ... my degree or maintaining a social life but w/ever. It is a redo of an older piece 3 years ago but this scene still stands as my favourite from the whole series.

I wish I could show you the high-res version but it would take longer to upload than I have years on this earth.

Enjoy! x

They were neither ghost nor truly flesh, he could see that. They resembled most closely the Riddle that had escaped from the diary, so long ago, and he had been memory made nearly solid. Less substantial than living bodies, but much more than ghosts, they moved towards him, and on each face there was the same loving smile.

James was exactly the same height as Harry. He was wearing the clothes in which he had died, and his hair was untidy and ruffled, and his glasses were a little lopsided, like Mr. Weasley’s.
Sirius was tall and handsome, and younger by far than Harry had seen him in life. He loped with an easy grace, his hands in his pockets and a grin on his face.

Lupin was younger too, and much less shabby, and his hair was thicker and darker. He looked happy to be back in this familiar place, scene of so many adolescent wanderings.

Lily’s smile was widest of all. She pushed her long hair back as she drew close to him, and her green eyes, so like his, searching his face hungrily as though she would never be able to look at him enough.

‘You’ve been so brave.’

He could not speak. His eyes feasted on her, and he thought that he would like to stand and look at her forever, and that would be enough.

action say more than words that why I :+fav:
But still I would like to say that the way you paint of Harry' s face is just perfect, He wasn't happy to dye but in that moment at list he wasn't alone.

You've perfectly captured how much a pussy HP's character is. My little sister is more manly while she does gymnastics.

Although Harry looks like he's straight out of the 70s, I LOVE THIS! It's astoundingly amazingly great!
