'MURDER! MURDER IN THE BATHROOM! MURDER!'
The door banged open behind Harry and he looked up, terrified: Snape had burst into the room, his face livid. Pushing Harry roughly aside, he knelt over Malfoy, drew his wand and traced it over the deep wounds Harry's curse had made, muttering an incantation that sounded almost like song.
(HBP 24, p. 489 UK ed.)

For Spinners--End's Challenge #7 "The beauty within Snape".
I don't remember whose essay I once read (by whitehound? drinkingcocoa? ls269? Who knows?) which beautifully analysed this moment, with Snape lifting Harry's Sectumsempra sounding 'almost like song'. I think it's a fitting example of Snape's commission in saving the Hogwarts students.

Ink and watercolours over an unknown and horrid paper.

Snape:"if you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you're happy and you know clap your hands."
Draco: " sir....it..it's not working....

Did you just make a parody of "Murder Murder" from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde???

I don't know what you are talking about.

I haven't gotten to this part yet and I thought the quote was a parody, and now I see that it was probably peeves.

You must forgive my theatrical side.

P.s 
Wonderfull work.

The title of this fanart is taken from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and the quote you see above is from there.

Is there a musical of Dr Jeckill and Mr Hyde?

Yes it's riley good. I wrote that at like, one in the morning so in my sleepy haze I made a connection to summating that never should have bin connection. Sorry for my late nite DA browsing. I've officially made it a rule for myself to not post comments after midnight. Sweating a little...

I loved this scene! In book and also in the movie, it was really short, but the music and Snape's words made the scene so emotional. You did amazing job, captured the moment and expressions so great :heart:

I think Alan Rickman did a good job of fulfilling that description. It reminded me of listening to a Latin mass, the way he cast the spell.

I don't remember the movie scene, having watched it only in cinema, but thanks!

Woah. I'm not sure I've ever seen an illustration of this scene before, but this is amazing! The look of agony twisting Draco's face is impossible to ignore, but I can't stop looking back at Snape, his body curving round the frame the scene.

*flails*
