The Calm Before by hilarity The Calm Before by hilarity
I guess there's no reason to explain that no, this is not Harry/Ginny. If you're here, hopefully you've figured it out by now. Maybe pass the word along to all the people who haven't. And please don't slut-shame Ginny. She isn't even in the damn picture.

This was a piece done for the lilyjames_fest at LiveJournal this past summer. The prompt was basically to make schmoop. So I made some because that is what I love.

So then it is James (and his sideburns) and Lily and Harry.

How can I not know who the blond in the oval top right photo might be? Dammit! Someone, help...?

Also... I, too, adore this picture to bits. It carries the feelings that all those really well-written fanfictions also have. Well done.

It's beautiful! Such a loving family and the toys on the floor are brilliant! Are those James' parents in the upper right? A bit of foreshadowing in the portrait on the upper left? I love your James/Lily (and baby Harry)! :heart:

You have no idea how much I love this. The style is gorgeous, you should do a room like this in the burrow, this is the style I always imagined the Weasley's would have.

YOUR LIVES WERE SACRED. YOUR MURDER, PROFANE. I MUST TAKE REVENGE. I MUST BECOME A CREATURE OF THE NIGHT. I MUST STRIKE FEAR INTO THE HEARTS OF THE DEATH EATERS.

I AM VENGEANCE.

dsgsdgkj I did think that was Ginny instead of Lily for a second (until I noticed the newspapers), curse them both for being redheaded! :shakefist: I'm also used to people not drawing dead people in my fandoms! Absolutely beautiful~ the details and soft coloring are so great! the poses and facial expressions are lovely too!

Everything about this is perfect. The pictures on the wall, Lily's clothes/facial expression/hair, the little figurines (or whatever they are) of the Marauders lying on the floor, and baby Harry are all so very well-done. I *adore* this piece.
