The Banes of Her Existence by Vizen The Banes of Her Existence by Vizen
Made as a little tribute to poor Minerva. When you're a Headmistress and a Gryffindor, you cannot curse the portraits of War Heroes, right ?

I do feel sorry for her, you know.

Ah, and Snape does wear his Order of Merlin, First Class. Customized in Slytherin colors.
JKR's

Customized in Slytherin colors? Shouldn't an Order of Merlin normally be in Slytherin colors? After all, JKR has said that Merlin with a member of Slytherin House.

Yes, I know there's a five hundred year time warp going on there, but... Oh, maths!

Possibly. But my painting is older than Pottermore.

I personally do not consider Pottermore canonical, and it was the nonsense of Merlin being a member a Slytherin House five hundred years before Hogwarts was founded that confirmed me in my opinion. I can, however, imagine members of Slytherin House claiming Merlin retroactively: "He obviously would have fit into our House perfectly. Therefore every Order of Merlin ought to be green and silver."

My three favorite professors!  I love how you have Dumbledore indulging in a tropical cocktail and your Snape is always perfect in his glorious, greasy snideness!  Ah, one of Minerva's virtues was her patience! :heart:

I seriously LOVE this picture. I love snape and dumbledore's attitudes, McGonnegal (spelled wrong i'm certain) cheeky almost green and "what I put up with" look. It's just...great!

We cannot print fanarts on dA.

Of course, if you download this and print it on your own without selling it, I have no objection -it's nice to know you love it enough. You may have problems with the quality of the print, though (resolution pbs)

Goodness, I can imagine the 'discussions' that went down in the Headmistress' office. Must have been good times. Actually, this might explain why she retired so early...;) I love Snape's signature smirk beyond belief. The whole thing is amazing.
