Tuney and Lily by airyfairyamy Tuney and Lily by airyfairyamy
"Snape looked no more than nine or ten years old, sallow, small, stringy. There was undisguised greed in his thin face as he watched the younger of the two girls swinging higher than her sister.
'Lily, don't do it!' shrieked the elder of the two.
But the girl had let go of the swing at the very height of its arc and flown into the air, quite literally flown, launched herself skywards with a great shout of laughter, and instead of crumpling on the playground asphalt, she soared, like a trapeze artist through the air, staying up far too long, landing far too lightly.
'Mummy told you not to!'
Petunia stopped her swing by dragging the heels of her sandals on the ground, making a crunching, grinding sound, then leapt up, hands on hips.
'Mummy said you weren't allowed, Lily!'
'But I'm fine,' said Lily, still giggling. 'Tuney, look at this, watch what I can do.'
Petunia glanced around. The playground was deserted apart from themselves and, though the girls did not know it, Snape. Lily had picked up a fallen flower from the bush behind which Snape lurked. Petunia advanced, evidently torn between curiosity and disapproval. Lily waited until Petunia was near enough to have a clear view, then held out her palm. The flower sat there, opening and closing its petals, like some bizarre, many lipped oyster.
'Stop it!' shrieked Petunia.
'Its not hurting you,' said Lily, but she closed her hand on the blossom and threw it back to the ground.
'It's not right,' said Petunia, but her eyes had followed the flowers flight to the ground and lingered upon it. 'How do you do it?' she added, and there was a definite longing in her voice.
'It's obvious, isn't it?' Snape could no longer contain himself, but had jumped out from behind the bushes. Petunia shrieked and ran backwards towards the swings, but Lily, though clearly startled, remained where she was. Snape seemed to regret his appearance. A dull flush of colour mounted the sallow cheeks as he looked at Lily."

How beautiful! You've really made these girls look bewitching, even - maybe especially - Petunia ... they both are beautiful creatures and I think you captured the childhood loveliness we never get to see in Petunia. Lily looks alive with magic. Gorgeous.

Thanks a lot! I find that I get to a point where I can't work on anything else because my ideas are bursting to get out onto the page and must be visualised. This year though I've put time aside to work on my drawing to make sure that I improve my skills before I am in the field : ) Thanks again for the compliment!

Yeah, but she wasn't always a little meanie, at some point before Lily found out she was a witch, I got the impression they were best friends.

I don't understand this hatred on Petunia.
How would YOU react, if you've found that your sister is a witch and you're not?
No offense but really. Her reaction was humanly.
Even though you're right at one thing - she shouldn't have raise Harry the way she did.
But Harry also had magical powers, I think this is what made Petunia to treat him the way she did. She always saw Lily in him.

This is beautiful!! They did so good with this part in the last movie!! Cried my eyes out I did. Poor Snape had such a tragic life... It's kinda his fault, but I still feel sad for him:(

Yeah, I could probably go on for a long time... but I won't. hahahaha:D
I agree- besides the Jane Austen films they've done, this series is the most faithful to the books.:D
I love Twilight, but I was pretty disappointed in the movies (New Moon was the closest to the book), so I'm glad they did so much better with Harry Potter:D
