I'm so excited 'cause I finally got my Snapely_holidays gift, and it's ART!!!!!!


And it's SNACK! And she chose the prompt where Sirius goes to Snape's house the summr after GoF!

*_* I'm completely starstruck.

Okay, so not only did I get art, but I got a ROCKSTAR artist, and it's Snack, and it's amazingly gorgeous, and there's a full story in one drawing! And just about as passionate kiss as there can be without actively participating in it!

Go take a look!!!

And now I sit for half an hour with a bag over my head in hopes that my hair will turn a really pretty dark, dark brown in the meantime. :D

Well, or at least cover up the horrible bleached with dark roots mess I have going on right now. -_-

I really need to get it cut today, but I will wait until this afternoon so I can do the post office run and haircut at the same time.

Is there anyone on my flist who can interpret dreams? I had a really bad dream last night, and I'd really like to see if I can do anything about it so it doesn't come back to haunt me again.

weird dream )

I hate dreams like that.

I mean, I know I'm insecure, but Jeez!

Mmmmm... Beltane

Can you smell the fires already? Celebrate the coming of Summer? A time of Rebirth?

Phoenixes, Rebirth, Living and praying for a good summer!

It's time to sign up for

Okay, seriously folks, we need artists and just a few more spots for writers!. I'm not running the show, but it was amazing last year, and I'm looking forward to it this year.

It's Harry/Draco/Snape. Solo, or in any combination of pairs or all three - up to you! The fest has a Beltane theme, but other than that, it's pretty open. Canon, AU, Epiloge compliant or without that weird alternative reality last chapter of the book.

Ratings anywhere from G to OMGYOUDIDN'TGOTHERE!(Nc-17!!!XXX)

Lots of fun, and a long time to get things done. :D

You've got to read this! It's wonderful and amazing, and I can't beleive that it hasn't been plastered all over my flist yet!!

Well, other than the fact that it's not technically slash.

But it's NEVILLE! and SNAPE!!

Need I say more?!

You must go and read!

The Closing of the Year
littleblackbow: (sirius loves harry)

Okay, so you guys might or might not know that I signed up to pinch hit for the HP Art Project.

I ended up getting two chapters. Book 2, Chapter 2 (in which Dobby gets Harry in trouble with the Dursleys, Harry gets that warning letter from the ministry, and he gets bars on his windows)

And I also got...


One of my favorite chapters... the one where Sirius tells Harry about the family tree. We meet Kreacher, they clean house, we meet the portrait of Walburga Black, etc.

It's a real challenge to get an entire chapter into one drawing. I really struggled with things like getting Harry the right age, and making sure it was canon enough, plus drawing what I remember in my mind's eye from reading the books rather than going with movie canon. The younger Harry was really difficult 'cause I'm so used to drawing him older now, it's hard to imagine him young like that.

Sirius is always a piece of cake for me. Oh, wait. If he's a piece of cake, maybe I should eat him. Or should I "have" him? Oh, how I'd love to HAVE my CAKE and EAT it too!!

Anyway, this is the post to share those two artses!!

And if you like it, please comment, rec, or something 'cause I think they're great, and I always feel horrible when I'm super-proud of something and everyone else thinks it's trash. -_-

Two chapter illustrations under cut )
littleblackbow: (yayz!)
Commissions: work in progress

I'm getting there. Finally, now that all of the holiday stuff is done, I can get back to work. I just have two exchanges that I'm working on now, so I've got some time to work on commissions here and there.

Getting to the oldest ones first (and yes, that would be TERMINUS), I'm gonna get the ones for [insanejournal.com profile] bethbethbeth and [insanejournal.com profile] gatewaygirl finished first, then move on to [insanejournal.com profile] ravenna_c_tan, [insanejournal.com profile] femmequixotic, and [insanejournal.com profile] djinnj (got one of Djinnj's done already - yay)

So, the first one is finished - and [insanejournal.com profile] bethbethbeth has given me permission to share! :D

Of course, I'm picturing her in my mind saying "HA-HA, it's MINE!!!" to everyone who looks at this, so just be wary of that.


Artist: [insanejournal.com profile] littleblackbow
Medium: Watercolor
Characters: Harry and Snape
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Artist Notes: Honestly, I think it's one of my best watercolors so far. ^_^
