Drawn for deeply_horrible on LJ, a fest of which the motto is, "Bring Back the Bastard!" No fluffy Snapes allowed ;).

OF COURSE lots of commenters on LJ thought that the girl in the picture must be Hermione's daughter because she has curly hair. I cannot forbid you to think so, but - no. No, no, no. Nothing could have been further from my mind.



Staedtler pens and Pentel brush pen + Winsor & Newton watercolours on Daler-Rowney "Texture" cold-pressed paper (300 g/m²).

Daughter: NOOO!!! (throws plate through the room)

Papa Snape: I'm done with this child.....

Your welcome. I can't help but wonder, who's the little girl?

Oh, she's an original character of mine - Snape's eldest child, Alba :).

Wow, mission accomplished. I love how you contrasted his bullying and her innocence by pose and expression! 

I think she's a Gryff in the making.

Heh heh. I think that if the Sorting Hat suggested Gryffindor, she'd say, "no, please, not Gryffindor, anything but Gryffindor!" ;)

(I have a rather elaborate headcanon about this little girl, don't mind me...)

I absolutely love this scene here. As intimidating as Snape may be, to some children a plate full of sprouts is much worse!

Not surprisingly, I can totally sympathise with the situation - sprouts are one of the very few vegetables I really, really don't like :D... But I don't think I'd have the courage to refuse eating them when faced by a seething Snape myself ;).

Oh not me; I love, love, love sprouts!  What gets me however, is the cool and calm demeanor this young child keeps while facing down a very seriously threatening Snape.

Sprouts smell like feet!

;)

I used to participate in a very writerly roleplay in which I wrote Snape, and where I indulged in all my secret OC longings. Snape had a wife and children who held their own very well, even when faced with a glaring Severus, mostly because they were rather Snapeish themselves. I LOVED writing that story XD.

Luckily for her, all the nutrition she refuses to eat can be put into a potion . . .

Unluckily, to teach her not to disobey, Snape would probably make it as horrible-tasting as possible!

For some reason this makes me think of what would've happened if Snape raised Harry. He'd probably be glaring at and threating Harry but Harry would be all stubborn and refuse to do what Snape tells him to do. Personally, I think Snape and Harry's relationship more interesting if it was like that in the books. Snape would yell at and insult Harry and but this wouldn't even phase Harry and he'd just be a annoying little imp. Poor Snape wouldn't know what to do, all he knows is how to intimate and be mean but Harry doesn't even care.

Classic illustration style that I love so well. Her little eye brows are up. She isn't happy to be going toe to toe with the old man, but she does not seem likely to give in either.

She is her father's daughter ;).

Thank you very much!

I was thinking "humorously horrible" ;). The Snapeling isn't going to obey; she drives her father up the wall sometimes. I kind of feel for both of them :P.

As for Snermione - well, I guess that if I were to imagine a daughter for Snape and Hermione (which I so would not - *grins*), it wouldn't be this one. But, freedom of interpretation and all that.

:laughing: That IS deeply horrible, until I remember what a natural he is at making a lasting impression on errant children :fear:
