blood magic by bettylane blood magic by bettylane
well I held you like a lover,
happy hands & your elbow
in the appropriate place
& we ignored our others,
happy plans for that delicate
look upon your face

well, I know I make you cry,
and I know sometimes you wanna die
but do you really feel alive without me?
if so, be free - if not, leave him for me
before one of us has accidental babies,
for we are in love

do you come
together ever with him?
& is he dark enough?
enough to see your light? & do you
brush your teeth before you kiss?
do you miss my smell?
and is he bold enough to take you on?
do you feel like you belong?
and does he drive you wild?
or just mildly free?

what about me?
what about me?

this is the preliminary drawing for orange crush. I did this, wasn't happy with it, and obviously went in another direction. but then I found the sketch a while ago & decided to color it anyway, and ended up liking it more. I did most of it with crappy sharpie markers & the background was done in GIMP.

Absolutely lovely! I immediatly recognized Severus Snape and Lily Evans. I can see the deep love he has for her, while she's somewhere else...

I like Lupin but I can't stand Tonks for the most part, so I wasn't too into them. I cried when everyone died, even Dobby! =P

aw, but she's tonks! ya whatever, but what do meaqn even dobby, his death was the most tragic of all! and hedwig! :cries:

bettylane Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010
oh yes, I was VERY sad when Hedwig died! I love birds of all kinds & always thought she was a beautiful companion for Harry, so it sucked that jk killed her off. :( I like Dobby in the books but hated him in the film, heh. he just got on my nerves every so often. but yes, his death was sad. I don't know why I don't like Tonks, I just think that Lupin was better by himself than with anyone, it didn't seem right for him to be "in love". :shrug:
