If you haven't read Snape: the Home Fries Nazi... you should. That's all I have to say. I don't care if you don't like Snarry, or if you're not into non-dh compliant, or if you don't like strange and dark, or...


Doesn't matter. It's one of the best characterizations of those two post-war I've ever read.

And since I love it so much, I made a cover for it!! :D

Clicky on the cover to head on over to [info]pir8fancier's skyhawke page with it.

Seriously... GO READ IT!!! (and if you've read it already, go read it again.)

OMG You have no idea how timely this is-I just re-read this fic (for the 4th or 5th time) and convinced a friend that she had to read it too. The candles, the dishtowel, their little school house, the pick-up, and the sunset! I love it.

But their faces-wow. Harry really looks older but still like Harry. And Snape-I'd recognize that expression anywhere, hair or not.

This is brilliant! I love the receipt for the title, and the house, and Snape, and the look in Harry's eyes. I'm having to resist so hard not to go re-read the story with all of the other stories I have to catch up on.

I have always wanted to see someone draw the Snape from this fic. Even without hair, I'd know that face anywhere. And I absolutely love the idea of cover art for fics. Brilliant work. ;D

This is fantastic and now I really want to go and re-read the fic and I don't have the time. *resists urge for further procrastination*

I love that the title is written on an order pad and Harry's hair, I love Harry's hair.

Great cover for a great fic :)

O.o

My brain couldn't wrap itself around a bald Severus when I read the story. Now I've seen it, and I still don't believe it.

OMG, that is just wonderful. I absolutely adore HFN. It's probably my favorite HP story of all time. And this totally does it justice!

Oh wow. Love it. Very nice work. They both, and the house, the car, the candles, look exactly like they sound in the story. *applauds*

Fabulous!!! And yes, this is THE story that I rec to people who think they couldn't possibly like a Snarry story...or slash...or fanfic at all. How wonderful to have art to match!

I'm curious - if you said what the medium was, I missed it - how did you create this piece?

Brilliant. I love the fic, but I couldn't quite imagine Snape being bald, and now you draw a perfect bald Snape.

THAT is one of the best Snape noses I've ever seen! An actual, canon compliant, hook nose, turning down at the tip. A lot of artists don't get it quite right - often it has a big bump at the middle, or it's cartoonishly big and out of proportion. Yours is well proportioned to his face. Good job! and yes, I've read Home Fries Nazi about four times. awesome story!
