Main Questions:

1.Introduce yourself...
Hello, I'm RedPassion and some of you know me under the nickname Clarice. I'm 35 at the moment and I'm from Germany. Nice to meet you :)


2. Since when you used to draw?
I can't remember clearly... I think it was about 1999 or 2000? I started to draw portraits at first and then it went over to animes and cartoons.
Look for my development: 
IMPROVEMENT MEME by RedPassion


3. Are you good in your opinion?
Not at all. Cause the artist is not the right person to judge this, others should decide that for themselves. And you will always find a person, who is better than you so no matter if you are good or bad, you should always try to keep develop yourself and become better.
But I'm fine with what I'm capable of... X°D


4. With which medias you work?
For digital drawings I normally use Photoshop PSCS6+ GT (graphic tablet), except of that pencil and watercolours


5. Do you draw something for others?
Yes but for friends only! So... Sorry, but NO RESQUESTS! anymore. 

But I do Art-trades when I find some time, inspiration, like your style, etc. :)

Commissions I take too, in fact. At least when I have enough time for it too, of course.^^;
If you are interested check out this link: redpassion.deviantart.com/jour…


6. Would you like to be friend with me? Our would watch me back if I watch you?
It's nothing personal but I like to keep my friendlist short to not confuse myself and I just watch artist or people that I want to watch by myself, because to get a watch doesn't mean, that I'm forced to watch this person back or to be friends with, sry guys. I hope you can understand that :/


7. What is if I find your art on another account than yours?
If this happened and if its not posted from my DA Account (RedPassion/Clarice), my Tumblr (Clarice82/Clarice82art), Facebook (Clarice1682), Instagram without credits (clarice82art) or from my Animexx Account (Clarice) then please inform me about that. It would be also nice if you would report it to the helpdesk. Thank you.


8. What do you think about getting comments/feedback?
It means a lot to me ofc! Sure it does, who doesn't like feedback? I appreciate every single comment I get and I'm happy about constructive critics, new ideas, tips, ect. :)
Comments from trolls or spam-entries will be ignored, reported and hidden, also evil and provocative comments.


9. Is it normal that you don't replay to any comment or thank someone if he/she is going to watch you?
Actually I try to answer every comment, as good as possible but it can happen, that I don't find the time to answer you quickly. But feel free to ask me anything I forgot to write in my FAQs now. At least I will always say "Thank you" to your comment anyway.


10. Can people use your art for random stuff like forum decoration, signatures, avatrs ect?
No, because just it's on the internet doesn't make it yours and doesn't allow to use it, e.g. for own stories, fanfiction-covers, other made up OCs and so on... But feel free to ask me though, cause sometimes and depending on the artwork I make exception sometimes ;)


11. Do you draw hentais/erotic-art ect? :|
Yes I do, but just for myself or friends and in commissions.


12. Are you somewhere else except of DA?
Yes, would be strange if I'm not, right?

Harry Potter Questions and about Louis XVI:

A.  Who is Emily?
Emily is my original character. She was created between 2006-2007 in first based to be the friend and 'lover' of Louis XVI and dedicated to the anime series Lady Oscar/Rose of Versailles/La Rose de Versailles/Versailles no bara.
I used her in a RPG before the first drawings were done (fav.me/ds63xc, fav.me/ds8ioq) From this day forward, I drew more pictures of her and consolidated her position at the side of the last king of France. Because after I started my studies about him and when I realized, the truth behind the anime series, I needed to give him someone who would bring a bit of sunshine in his actually poor life. Even when it is only fictional. So yes with this, she was at first a special creation just for him and she will always be. These two are meant to be IMHO.

That was the first version of Emily, but now there exist another one. An alternative version, you can say.
It's right that they look actually the same and have the same name, but have slightly other personalities because of the different backgrounds and storylines. Let me explain the difference:

~*Roses of different Time*~:

The story of Emily 1 (the original) begins 2005/2006 at an university in Berlin. She's 23 years old and studies history and art, her speciality is the French history. Her best friend and student/room mate is Isabelle Thiery (21 years) who goes with her trough thick and thin.
So the story really starts after an invention of an other student they are friends with, who offers them to get the chance to go back in time. After some preparations they both find themselves in 1773 at Versailles, dressed properly of course and try to integrate themselves as personal painter for the Dauphine (Crown Princess)Marie-Antoinette.
The Dauphine is also the one who ordered that Emi and Isa should stay with Oscar and her family. So the girls get to know the bodyguard of the Dauphine and her best friend André. Isa become very good friend with André so Oscars thinks firstly they would make a good match and tried to set them up. But Isa noticed very fast that André is in love with Oscar and isn't interested in him at all but in Girodelle!
In this time Emily get also the chance to talk a lot to Dauphin (Crown prince) Louis, the future king of France (Louis XVI.), but after 3 month they have to go back to their century. Some last preparations follow cause she (Emily) wants to go back and then forever.
So finally Emi and Isa come back in May 1774 and Louis help them to get their place/position back at the court after they had left, while MA isn't amused about that red-haired woman at all.
(In this story it's Emily's natural hair colour is red, even if it's not possible with such an intense red, but she wouldn't have had the chance to dye her hair again back in the 18th century)
Because of her knowledge about this period, Louis and the problems of the court, she can give some advice to the new crowned king to improve the financial situation. She's the first woman he met, that understand his politics and is smart enough to be a real help for him. While the Queen of France is trying to get rid of her because (she is jealous but not cause she loves the king), she's afraid of her position as a queen,leader and fashion idol, even as the one of a ´mistress´ to the king, especially cause they still didn't really fulfil the marriage. Marie-Antoinette hated it to play second fiddle! Though they did try it just once in Compiégne like they really did in history in 1773 ),But Louis keeps Emily as close as possible at side and at least give her the position of the governess when his first child Marie Thererse was born (after her for Louis Joseph and Louis Charles too). So she overlooked and cared for his children and becomes something like a mother to them, because MA wasn't around very much to care for her own children and more for her free time, her Hamlet (Hameau de la reine) and her so great friends. (incl. of course of von Fersen she met again and got him as her lover in/after 1781).
Louis´ children are the reason for the first shy kiss of Louis and Emily after 15 years of (deep friendship) her second arrival in his time. She, ofc, have loved him a long time before this and just tried to be a good (best and only) friend he ever had, while he loved her as well but hold it back, too. Because he knew, or at least was sure, that it would be simply impossible for him to get the chance that she could feel the same for him, when already his own wife didn't returned his feelings once and just accepted him because he was the king and she had to married him cause of politics.
But even Emily tried to not let this go too far (even if the rumours already started years ago and were still around them), in order to protect his image of the only King that never ever had any mistress, she can't withstand him finally when they really kissed and he begged her to stay, after she wanted to leave him because she thought she couldn't stand these one side love anymore. 
But he needs her more than a friend. He also admit that he loves her with all his heart and that he don't want to know about a life without her by his side. Because after they kissed she feel terrible to lose her control that way, to destroy his  position and still decided to leave Versailles, him and the children then forever for the greater good. But of course she couldn't. Not after she really have to realized that her dream came true, after all these years of wishing and hoping. (even if her dream to be with him already became true at all)
In the following years they have to hide everything even when everybody was aware of this special relationship between them, but it would have been too dire for him if she would have been officially his mistress. Emily does her best not to get pregnant, but fails here again. She tells no one about the unborn child, not even her best friend Isabelle that still lives at Versailles, too.
So she's loosing the child and the ability to get pregnant ever again by an accident and this is also the moment when Louis gets that information about it and her. But with this she's caring even more for his children and can stave off the death of his (their) son Joseph for some time. Only two month after his normal death he fells off his pony and get crashed his neck-bones by it. As a murderer of the new Dauphin, the only way to save her life, is to send her to ´exile´. From there she tries to help Louis together with Oscar, André and Alain which are on the side of the folk since the Revolution starts. After more failed action of Emily and even through the help of her friends she doesn´t arrives to get him and the children safe again. All the 'wonderful' mistakes/situations of the Revolution happens anyway. But Oscar and Co. tries everything to get her close to Louis as often as it is possible. Although they manage to get her into the Temple (his prison during his last month before death) she can't help him much and in the end she has to watch his execution where she nearly breaks. Only the task to protect the remained children give her the strength to go on. With the help of her new friends she can't help Therese that will be later known as the duchesse d'Angoulême, but they can rescue Charles. The whole group of Emily, Charles, Isabelle, Oscar, André and Alain go to the country side where they life together until the former prince is about 18 years old. Emi is now 48 and dies at home during her sleep and after she won't be in that world without Louis anymore, now where Charles is an adult, while Lady Oscar and André along with their two children get killed by the soldiers of Napoléon. Charles shares their fate and dies 10 years later than in the real path of history. The only one who survive are Isabelle and Alain with their three children.

~*The Beauty and the Bat*~:

The story of Emily 2 (the version of 2011) begins in September 1993 where she is 28 and the Muggle aunt of Lavender Brown who has no clue about the magical world. Although her mother was German and her father English she's now living in France where she works as a historian and an expert for the life of the royals of the Château de Versailles. She visits her sister in England and want to bring her niece to the Hogwarts Express, but because she has to carry one of Lavender suitcases inside the train, she's still there when the trains starts. And after Remus Lupin discovers her, he's not sure what to do with her, so he sent her later to the castle. Emily has to stay the whole year, cause the Ministry of Magic sees of the possibility that Sirius Black tries to kill or use her in order to get nearer to Harry Potter and so she has to stay with Severus Snape down in the dungeons, cause he should protect her and has an extra room in his flat. (Actually all of this is a secret plan of Dumbledore to bring her close to Snape and to seal his loyalty to the good side)
And he isn´t amused, playing bodyguard for this bloody boring and mulish woman, who reminds him a bit of Lily at first sight because of her red hair, but he learns quickly that she's totally different. Most of all because Emily has this ´precious gift´ to see behind his big dark wall and his lies. She's not afraid of him, nor does his sarcasm impress her, on the contrary she strikes back and he's getting even more furious when he looses some of their word fights. No one ever dared to act like her before and he hates her for her patience, her cheekiness and that he can't get rid of her. Besides that Emily, who becomes close friends with Lupin, likes Snape honestly and well, after a half year she also fell in love with him. But he doesn't make it easy for her and the next following 1 1/2 years are full of ups and downs. Some peaceful weeks and some very hard arguments, between hidden feelings, dangerous situations and confusion from his side because he still insist that he loves Lily and is not falling for Emily. After she was a new professor for Muggle history at Hogwarts during the fourth year of HP, she's willing to leave all behind and go back to her Muggle life in France when Severus tells her that he has the same feelings but refuse a relationship. Before she can really leave he holds her back. Only a month after they came together without anyone knowing, Voldemort is back and the potionsmaster tries again to end their affair to protect her from the Death Eaters. He don't want to loose her like Lily but again she's too stubborn and with a lil support of Dumbledore and the Order of the Phoenix, Snape gives up. When Hogwarts gets under the control of Dolores Umbridge he has to smuggle her out of the castle and she has to stay with the Weaslys. She can come back, too after Dumbledore returns to Hogwarts, for another year, but Snape is secretly preparing everything to hide her another time. He knows that when he killed the headmaster, she wouldn't be save there anymore, so he pretends to kill her, too and bring her to the Prince mansion. For a year she stays there and her only company is her house-elf Tink, who was a present from Dumbledore in 1993. Severus cannot visit her often and he prepares everything for the case of his death, that someone from the Order can find her. In fact it's Remus, who survived the war, that is able to find the hidden house and has to tell her, that her love died in battle.
This is too much for Emily and she nearly can't stand the pain of her loss, but is willing to see him one last time. What both of them didn't knew that they salvaged him alive from the shrieking shack and treat him now at St. Mungo Hosptital. After his trial he's set free again and return with Emily to their mansion that is renovated by them in the following years. Finally able to make their relationship official he propose to her during their holidays in France. And again he thinks it is better for her, when they don't stay together, so he calls everything off and is so close of loosing her forever. But finally they marry on August the 7th in 2000 in Versailles. He opens his own potions shop in Diagon Alley only some month before their first son Septimus Severus Snape is born on September the 23th 2002, only two years after that Eileen Emily Snape is born on March the 22th 2004. He will be sorted in Gryffindor and becomes best friends with Albus Severus Potter, while Eileen is following her fathers path and is sorted in Slytherin. Whatelse this family is awaiting stands in the stars ;)
(We do know that the birth dates of Septimus and Eileen don't fit with the given birth dates of the other children in the proluge of the seventh book. But well we didn't let die Severus, Remus, Nymphadora or Fred die. Also we made Snape and all of the Marauders elder to fit them better with the age of their movie actors. They weren't born in 1960 but in 1942 - In all of these cases we allowed ourselves to stray from the books.)

~*Curriculum vitae*~

Another storyline I started to create with another past friend of mine.

The idea for the alternative version of Emily came in a narrow sense from :iconkozmotispitchiner:, cause she brought me to the idea - What would be if... So of Emily would met Snape... Cause she love my darling girl. :) So the story around them was (more or less) born. ;) I liked it and now I'm so in love with it :D


B. Why is Emily and their children drawn in anime style while Snape is drawn more realistic? 
At first these two are some kind of people from two totally different worlds and I wanted to make that even more clearer in my drawings. But in the end they should harmonize together, despite how different they are by personalities. I'm aware that not everybody shares my opinion that they match good together, but that is in this case, sorry to say that, not important to me. I like the way they look together and I draw Emily&Snape mostly for me and my friend and not to please others. In the end it's just purely a matter of taste.
Second: Severus is more realistic because this character doesn't belong to me (sadly :( ). He is portrayed by the actor Alan Rickman, who I love very much, and so he's the Snape I always imagine, when I think of him.
On the contrary side, Emily is my OC as the kids are in some way. They are all made up and they are not modelled on some real existing person. Of course I have my photomanipulations with Bonnie Wright (the actress of Ginny Weasly) but she isn't Emily 100%! I always have to change some anatomic features to fit her into my imagination of Emily. When Bonnie for example looks sad than it isn't always the way Emily would look like in the same situation. So for Severus I always use a photo of Alan for reference, because he played Snape and when he looks like this when he's smiling than Snape would look like this, too. I can't use a photo of Bonnie and use it one to one for a drawn picture. So I prefer to draw Emi as I always did and know this way exactly how she has to look like. The same goes for the children.
Btw no one ever mentioned it on my drawings of e.g Alice&Tarrant (Alice in Wonderland 2011) before too.:roll:
Another critic was how I 'colour' Emily's hair in my black and white pictures. Yes she has the red hair and I know that normally it should be in a tone of grey, cause letting it white would imply blonde, white or silver hair. But some of them would turn out too dark with both of them having black clothes. On the other side, I'm just too lazy. Cause my problem is, that I can't draw them in grey so that they look good, I would have to do it first in red colour and then turn it into grey, that is too much work for so simple deviations. And I simply like it, the way it is. At least this prevents comments of Emily being Lily.
C. Why do Lavander and Emily have the same family name when they are only niece and aunt? 
Lavender Brown (real HP chara and later girlfriend of Ron Weasley) is the niece of Emily cause we(me) gave Emily an older sister named Catherine which we dedicated to be Lavenders mother in that case, which is actually unknown. When Cathie once met her husband then it appear that they both have the same family-name - Brown. This is what most people would call an "unhappy coincidence". ;P With that it is no surprise that Emily and Lavender, who have the lil nickname "Didi" by Emily in our storyline, have also the same familyname. ;)
D. Why is Eileen blond when her father has black hair and her mothers is red? 
Eileen is blond cause Emily is actually blond too, she have just dyed red hair, cause such a hair colour can´t be natural ;) XD I know what I´m talking about cause i´m a coiffure XD And its not predetermined that you have the same hair colour like your parents always. Me, I´m actually blond as well and my parents are both dark hair... I look e.g more like my uncle than to someone else out of my family. And Emilys sister and niece (Lavender Brown) are blond as well;)
E. How can you say that Emily isn't a Mary Sue or a self-insert character when she looks totally like you? 
At first I'm not looking exactly like her (nor would I wear everything of her clothes) and second, it was more that I designed Emily first with the red hair (I always loved that hair colour) and then became myself more and more like her by dying my hair and let it grow long. Finally I wanted to cosplay her and so it is necessary to look like the character, isn't it?
F. Why is :iconkozmotispitchiner: always there to play the white knight whenever there is a bigger discussion? 
Because the story of Emily and Snape is not only my idea and fanfiction. It's an RPG of her and me so she is also to blame for all of this ;P *just kidding*. She's the one who infected me with HP and plays the part of Severus Snape in story as she is my cosplay partner. We both created this plot and envelope it more and more. We're close friends and stay always in contact to talk about everything we want to do in our RPG and so she has the right, too, to defend our creation!
G. Why do you hate Lily Evans (all Potters) so much and declare her as b****?

Well I was asked that question often and actually it explains itself if you have read the books, but ok.
I try to explain this in detail ( I built up my mind on the basic of these few moments that were described in the book. And Yes I think that these are more or less a mirror of Lilys or the other characters general behaviour.):::: redpassion.deviantart.com/jour… (I'm sorry but I had to split my explanation of hating Lily cause anyway my entry would have been to long^^; so please click on the link)

13. Why do I love Louis XVI so much?
A question I was asked so often... So now I try to explain that as well...

Why a man, who was presented, by the flow of time, as incapable, humdrum, boring and unimportant but also as good-nature and proper resp. as a debtor for the disintegration of the Ancien Régimes?
In fact everything began through my childhood memories of the jap. Anime Series Lady Oscar - La Rose de Versailles - Rose of Versailles - Versailles no Bara.  Even it wasn't the best start for this subject AT ALL!
A fiction of a representation, based on the Novelle of Stefan Zweigs Marie-Antoinette - Bildnis eines mittleren Charakters (The Portrait of an Average Woman) from 1932, shows exactly this so "popular" image of that man like it was written above. A man, devote and controlled of his, construed through others, so unbelievable beautiful wife. Directed of his ministers, not able to make own decisions and who prefer to spend his time in a forge than to rule his kingdom.    
And exactly this image made me curious!
There were some very important key scene in the series which arise a lot of questions. I've never seen real portraits of the royal and real family of France before or at least I couldn't remember on it and I was not very pleased when I saw then the first and most famous painting of Marie-Antoinette - La Rose (Vigée le Burn). It was strictly speaking quite the opposite! So I asked myself, when i remembered on the drawing version of Marie- Antoinette in the series, why they showed her in such an falsified interpretation? It was/is simply inconceivable! The fear that the king seems to be the same was obvious. But then it happened that I was very surprised and in a truly positive way about his portrait from Duplessis, Joseph Siffred (1775)! His cartoon-version matched the original much better, even it was not correct in the first episodes for 100%. I was amazed, that the king was an slimmer, young and very handsome man (even if I always found him very handsome though), who fits to his series-interpretation finally much better in the course of time when he became more corpulence.
I have to admit that i truly love the anime-version/ Style-version of him as well anyway (NOT the totally incorrect portrait of his character!). It's so cute. :love:
However...
At the beginning I was attached of Marie-Antoinette and the king. So I started to read everything I could get of them. (first german books only). Especially of Marie-Antoinette. I was thinking to find the same number of information of him, cause of their sadly existed marriage. I liked her and felt sorry for her destiny at the beginning. I was searching and reading through every books, magazine´ and even internet-site for more details. But sadly the most of them reflected not that much about the king and his private life with the queen almost 10 years ago. I only found the so strong published image of him, beside the so dramatic and lonely one of the queen, who wasn't  able to make his wife happy/satisfied.
Writings of Faÿ, Girault de Coursac, also memoirs ect. followed, which dealt directly with the king. I expand my search in English and French to find more and more. So the questions became more and more too and my positive and understanding image of the queen I had at first to overturn. The more I learn about her and the more I got answers on my questions, the more I got also a lot of logical results. Cause all is not gold that glitters and the truth was totally different than people (esp some 'historians' tried to make others believe for the so pretty pretence and to support the "cash flow". Cause the conclusion about Louis XVI. was not the one of an dumb and clumsy losers! But also Marie-Antoinette wasn't this poor innocent victim of the conditions in the case of her husband and the regimen of France neither a lovely devoted mother or wife! 
It seems more and more unfair to me and most of all beyond my understanding, why one did/does that to "him"?!
Why all of these detraction, lies and recriminations?
In my opinion these "classic" and common "distribution of roles"  of Marie-Antoinette´ and Louis XVI. was not correct. The person who came in the spotlight for, in my eyes, meaninglessness and superficialises, for lies and deception of the pompous "luxury-world", got the "laurels" utterly wrong.
Cause if one side of the medal deserves, respect, attention and clarity, the answer is segmented obvious.  
That's why i decided myself to create finally (among other things) an Hommage/Homepage in the order to give Louis XVI. his right and good name back to the world. I'm still working on it. One he deserve! And to show and teach the true image of a man, than the wrong one which exist already much to long in our history.
He simply worth it!   

My Homepage::: ludwigxvi.npage.de/ (for the moment in german only)

That's why I dedicated my whole life to him and to study the french history since already many years. And I won't stop it until I "reached my goal".
Voilá

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But at the end I just can hope this shows clearly why I hate Lily Evans so much and love Louis XVI.. And I won't debate about this anymore cause I have said everything that I wanted to say. If you still have a different opinion than mine than have it and don't bother me with it, especially not in the case of Lily!
You won't convince me with a made up dream view of her, that can't be proofed by the book. I have read these passages multiple times and know what is written there.

Almost the same with the sooo poor life if Marie-Antoinette. I have read a LOT in three different languages, letters and documents, my studies are/were not in vain, I promise, so... Please spare me with comments like -
"You don´t know her, cause you are a fool and stupid, she was such a  great woman and loving mother...blablabla" - Yes of course she was...:roll: That's why e.g Marie-Therese hated her mother already when she was 5 years old. That's why the children never had a strong and maternal care from the queens side. That's why she betray the king many times, that's why she did high treason. Ect. ect. ect...
The list of proofs of all of her mistakes and egoistic way of living is very very long!   

"You still believe in old lies like let them east cake, its WRONG! She never said it."
- I do know that and I hate all of them who still believe in this stupid quote was said by her! BUT sadly it fits perfectly to her and how her life was showed over the years and with all of her actions and statements, so that's why I can understand that it is still so easy to believe it.  
"Read Lever, Zweig, Fraser and watch Sophia Coppola and Lady Oscar" - Oh dear Lord, please not! >.> Keep your rubbish try of an pink illusion for yourself and your lil bible of ridiculousness filled with wishful thinking (most and sadly by/of the memories of Mme. Campan). I saw the movie and own it. So I do with the book (GER+EN) which was meant to be a "biography"... But to be honest when I read/saw it I wasn't sure if I should start to cry, to laugh or to freak out totally....-.-
My experience shows much to well that "Lovers/Fans" of this woman simply live in their own dreamily holy world and arn't able to discus with someone who bring them facts up they've never heard about before or didn't want to... well well the same old song, yes yes.... I can absolutely live without such individuals!

14.)There is still something you want to know and what isn't in my FAQs?
Leave me a comment right here and I'll do my best to give you an answer! Any other comments I will ignore.

Was Marie-Antoinette really a horrid wife?! Because if that's true and if the Revolutionaries' statements about King Louie the 16th are untrue as well, then I don't hate King Louie the 16th anymore. Can you answer me?!

Sincerely, Robyn
