So, the day started out well (golden autumn, two whole days off, no family crises) and deteriorated as it went on (no family crises ha ha, said the universe, wrong again!). Now it's late and dark, and I sat me down at my computer to scroll through my flist in a desultory fashion, seeking something to distract me. And whoa!

I got my wish.

[livejournal.com profile] sarkysue, who wrote the lovely four-part Snarry fic Revealed, Gently (links to the ending with the chapter list), is also, as it happens, a talented artist. Earlier today, she posted a double nude portrait of Snape and Harry based on When the Rose and the Fire Are One, a fic I wrote in 2008. There are two versions of the portrait, a pencil drawing and a watercolor, and both are beautiful-ugly, strange and almost confrontational, the painting exquisitely tinted and the drawing flowing with clean lines and sharp bones. Snape is rendered in a style that pays tribute to Egon Schiele, while Harry's body is more classical, with the slight hip-tilt common to ancient Greek statuary. Their faces are amazing. There is nothing romantic about these two except for their clasped hands -- and for this fic, that's perfect.

I'd highly recommend clicking through to [livejournal.com profile] sarkysue's gallery, where you can click again to enlarge the pictures. For some reason posting them to her journal ended up blurring the images, while the Scrapbook versions remain clear and true.

Thank you so, so much for the wonderful surprise, [livejournal.com profile] sarkysue. I know I've said it before, but truly, the talent in this fandom astounds me.

[personal profile] leela_cat did a phenomenal job with this in a ridiculously short time. Whatever coherence the fic has is due to her heroic efforts and hand-holding. Many thanks to my beloved [personal profile] rinsbane for talking me through to the images I needed.

With gratitude to [personal profile] leela_cat and apologies to T. S. Eliot for the title.
