leaving by gerre

©2010-2015 gerre
11-year-old Severus and his mum, waiting for the Knight Bus to take them to King's Cross Station that will take him to Hogwarts for the first time. I think this must have been one of the happiest moments in Snape's life.

This is my entry for the second challenge over at Spinner's End

Oh, his optimism is so heart-wrenching when you know quite well what will happen in the future!  I love your Eileen--she looks like such a sourpuss! :heart:

You're so great with all the little details in the backgrounds... reminds me how much I have to work on that.

haha, I actually have to real myself in when it comes to backgrounds. Sometimes the scene gets lost because I add too many details.

His expression is adorable!
So sweet, but so sad ... considering all that we know about what comes next :(
It makes you want to just reach right in and give him a hug ... not that he'd be too happy about that lol

thanks! yeah, poor little severus. I keep trying to find ways his life could have been better and people could have been nicer to him etc., even though I know it's pointless to do so.

I know, innit! It's his thought bubble juxtaposing his mother (which symbolizes his upbringing, homeliness, lonliness, and all) that makes it so. So simple, it's genius the way you put it together. Seriously, if someone having a bad day would happen to see this at the right moment, it might cause tears. I'm not even a Snape fan (at all) and I really like this. Le travail excellent, comme toujours.

I wasn't sure how else they would get to London, I doubt whether they would even own their own broomstick.

I'm sure he wasn't always so rotten, even though he's had such a rotten life. I feel like drawing other 'good' memories of snape now, though I can't immediately think of one...
