'Thank You, Severus' Challenge - Good bye, 20s by ameraucanablues 'Thank You, Severus' Challenge - Good bye, 20s by ameraucanablues
Submission #1 of 2 for the "Thank You, Severus"Challenge at :iconspinners--end: .

I know they'nt your thing, buddy, but nevertheless Happy Birthday, Sev! :D Turning 30 (as I will be doing in 6 months and 5 days :O ) isn't ALL bad! Who wouldn't want a baby fawn?!

As for what time of day this takes place -- whether he's going to bed or just waking up -- is up to the viewer. I am basing my opinion of it as whether or not Sev prefers to shave after waking up or before going to bed. I usually draw him with full-on 5:00 shadow in the late evening so he could have shaved just before going to bed, so as to not have to do so on his birthday, and finding the gift of a baby fawn on his bed. But if that's so then I realized I messed up by having the candles lit and the milk bottle empty (though one could argue he snapped them on as he was waking up via magic and the fawn has already been fed). Though he could very well be just turning in after having to endure a tiring day of full of birthday bullshit, only very pleased to peacefully fall asleep with the warmth of a new pet next to him.

Regardless, I wanted to give him something he'd enjoy... seeing as plenty more artists out there will be delightfully tormenting him! ;P

The birthday card reads "Potions Masters don't age: they stew! Happy Birthday, Severus! -- Hogwarts Faculty & Staff"

Yes, that is Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time and a Salvador Dali calendar.

I was wondering the other day, "if Harry's dad is a stag and his mom a doe, wouldn't he be a fawn?" :XD:
I always thought the fact that Harry's parumus (not sure how it's spelled) was a stag like his father was kind of lame; I think it's supposed be like his dad watching over him but it seemed to suggest that he's like his father but he isn't (he actually acts like Severus as teenager in many ways.) If I remember right, his memory was winning a Quiditch match, which I always thought was rather shallow (Snape's memory was about Lilly, now that's sweet), Harry's happiest memory should be about Ron and Hermione since they're the more precious to him then anything or anyone else in the world so his happiest memories should be with them (like Lilly is to Snape.) Harry's paramus probably should've been a snake (bet his reaction would've been hilarious) or a fawn.

Besides the overall cuteness and slight oddness, which contribute to the overall awesomeness, do my eyes deceive me, or is that a crucifix over his bed?
