Something Precious

By WishCat

"Rianne Felthorne blinked at the stone cavern she'd discovered, still holding the extraordinary ruby she'd found embedded in the dirt of one corner. It was an incredible windfall, and she didn't know why looking at the ruby made her feel so sad, like she'd forgotten something, something that had been precious to her."

Just a quick something I had to take out of my mind (at 4 AM lol). This is inspired by chapter 77 of the fanfiction Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality. It is AWESOME and everyone should read it! The last chapter moved me, so I had to draw this! It's a pity I don't have a scaner or illustrator or anything...sigh. But yeah.

Wow, someone drew Rianne! That's great! This was a sweet, sad chapter. I don't usually feel bad for either fanon or canon Snape, but this one got to me. He's just so...stuck.

Rianne is very interesting for someone who seems to have just a minor, passing role in HPMOR. A few reviews mentioned that she seemed like a young counterpart to Snape in that she, too, had a tendency to let indecision and regret mire her in place and perhaps her epiphanies during this chapter would change that tendency (or, since she lost the memory, it sadly wouldn't have any effect at all and she could end up with similar personal problems as Snape...though pssshht how's anyone else going to have that particular mess of problems)

Awwww, so cute.
Too bad Snape can't just have a normal life.

In case anyone is following the link, it looks like the chapters may have been reorganized at some point.  Click back one to Chapter 76 for this context.

Totally enjoy this piece.  I just finished that chapter and felt so sad for them both.

Nice! My only comment is that it might be more effective without the tears in her eyes - I remember reading once, and have remembered ever since, that the saddest parts of stories are often more effective when the character doesn't cry - if the character cries, it means the reader doesn't have to.

Email yudkowsky at gmail with your desired cameo name!

Mmm, you're probably right. I think I might delete them when I remake her (in the summer, because right now I have tons of stuff to do >_<). Thanks for the advice.

Erm, in case it's not clear, this is the author of Methods speaking. You have done fan art and thereby earned a cameo in the story, like many others before you. What name should I use for your cameo?

Was Rianne your cameo appearance?
