Made as a little tribute to poor Minerva. When you're a Headmistress and a Gryffindor, you cannot curse the portraits of War Heroes, right ?

I do feel sorry for her, you know.

Ah, and Snape does wear his Order of Merlin, First Class. Customized in Slytherin colors.

I wonder, how Mcgonagall reacted after she knew the truth. And yeah, I can totally imagine Snape annoying the hell out of her haha

Ahaha I love Dumbledore's portrait. As for Snape, I heard that after Harry provided a portrait for him, his picture-self left the table after a while and never turned back. And it suits him, I mean he would hate hanging there, answering people'S pitying questions, especially Minerva's.

Oh, where did you hear it? Could be.

I remember this from long ago. I don't want to inform anyone wrongly about it, because I did not read i directly from source. But I heard it, it was Rowling who said this, while answering "why there was not a picture of Snape in Headmaster's room when they went there after Snape's death."

So, means he is dead. Many people still say he is not.

Wait, Snape got an order of Merlin?
Did I miss something?

He should have!

Yes he should have.

I love this. It's so funny! Dumbledore's little umbrella drink (which is my favorite part) and Snape's smirk are just perfect, plus her expression of almost-amused resignation. It's fantastic.

The expressions are perfect, it's easy to see that they're driving poor Minerva round the bend despite she fact she clearly appreciates them being there. Love it :D

Customized in Slytherin colors? Shouldn't an Order of Merlin normally be in Slytherin colors? After all, JKR has said that Merlin with a member of Slytherin House.

Yes, I know there's a five hundred year time warp going on there, but... Oh, maths!

Possibly. But my painting is older than Pottermore.

I personally do not consider Pottermore canonical, and it was the nonsense of Merlin being a member a Slytherin House five hundred years before Hogwarts was founded that confirmed me in my opinion. I can, however, imagine members of Slytherin House claiming Merlin retroactively: "He obviously would have fit into our House perfectly. Therefore every Order of Merlin ought to be green and silver."

My three favorite professors!  I love how you have Dumbledore indulging in a tropical cocktail and your Snape is always perfect in his glorious, greasy snideness!  Ah, one of Minerva's virtues was her patience! :heart:
