After drawing this, I had this little dream the other night: when Severus Snape dies, his life sort of "resets". He wakes up to this little girl, and while he doesn't understand exactly what's going on, he knows this life is his, she's his daughter, and that someone he's waited all his life for is in the kitchen downstairs. When I told Kit about the dream, she said I had to draw it. I figured us Snape lovers can use all the sweet fanart we can get right about now. Ice the wound.

I realized after drawing the room that his new life is clearly Muggle. Which is just fine, except that it's hard to imagine Snape dressed in anything other than that button-heavy waistcoast, especially anything you'd call pajamas. Can't beat a cotton pullover, though.

The cat is my cat, General Sterling Price, who forms a perfect circle when sleeping. I feel like Snape would've been a happier man if he'd had a cat or a dog. Even a turtle. Anything that would be happy to see him, you know?

For once I didn't use brushes! I might finally have enough little pattern doodles to make my own brush set, if I knew how.
