She nodded, mopping her eyes, but in spite of herself, she half smiled.
"You'd better be in Slytherin," said Snape, encouraged that she had brightened a little.
"Slytherin?"
One of the boys sharing the compartment, who had shown no interest at all in Lily or Snape until that point, looked around at the word, and Harry, whose attention had been focused entirely on the two beside the window, saw his father: slight, black-haired like Snape, but with that indefinable air of hacing been well-cared-for, even adored, that Snape so conspicuously lacked.
"Who wants to be in Slytherin? I think I'd leave, wouldn't you?" James asked the boy lounfing on the seats opposite him, and with a jolt, Harry realized that is was Sirius. Sirius did not smile.
"My whole damily have been in Slytherin," he said.
"Blimey," said James, "and I thought you seemed all right!"


Ok, so I kept getting requests for Snape (of all people 8| I like him fine, I just don't really draw him much. Well, I don't like him, but he's interesting. Rat bastard- sorry that just came out of no where. XD)

So anyways, I decided that Snape as a child was much nicer than some of the others. Plus, I haven't seen anyone draw this one yet. :|

Anywho, James is all 'OMG! Slytherin sucks and Gryffs are lyke totally the s***!' He is a preppy bastard, but he's adorable all the same. He's such a spazoid.

Snape is all 'grrr, I don't like anyone talking to me, but Lily, like evah!' He is grumpy and not really all that better looking as a child.

And Lily's all 'what's up with this jackass?' about James. She's darling.

And Sirius is all 'Why is everything in my life so damn boring?' He's already a player, you know, just look at him lounging.

She nodded, mopping her eyes, but in spite of herself, she half smiled.

James looks like he has ADHD. Or on drugs, which is sad for a eleven year old. XD

It's been over 2 years since I first saw this, and it's still my favorite Harry Potter picture. I see it everyday on my computer desktop. I just decided to search this up again on May 2, and to let you know how much this picture means to me. I love it so much. :)

LOL I love your descriptions of the kids. Your right, James is a preppy bastard, he is definitely the sort of person who grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth. :D I adore how Lily is so loyal to Snape in all of his awkward moody Addams kid glory.

I wish JK Rowling would write a prequel of that era.

Really lovely! I like all four of them. Snape is a rat bastard, but one I feel sorry for. James was a rat bastard, but he grew up to be awesome same as Sirius. And Lily is a just a bamf.

Haha nice one mate! You're totally right James does look like a preppy little bastard. That eyebrow-raised full-toothed grin just screams out prick lol. Lily, on the other hand, looks adorable as does angsty little Severus in the corner. Sirius looks totally chill slouchin like he's all that and a bag of crisps. And OMG is that dialogue siriusly from the book? LMFAO at:

"My whole damily have been in Slytherin," he said.
"Blimey," said James, "and I thought you seemed all right!"

I could just about die right now! <3
Gah James looks so adorable in all his spaz-oidness. He's so easy to love. :P

And Lily's look right there begins the "That James Potter!" story :D

And I agree with you. Snape the rat-bastard, who wouldn't have minded Lily's spouse and son dying if he could have her. >:(

Basically, spot on! Love it!
