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.

I wonder, how Mcgonagall reacted after she knew the truth. And yeah, I can totally imagine Snape annoying the hell out of her haha

Ahaha I love Dumbledore's portrait. As for Snape, I heard that after Harry provided a portrait for him, his picture-self left the table after a while and never turned back. And it suits him, I mean he would hate hanging there, answering people'S pitying questions, especially Minerva's.

I remember this from long ago. I don't want to inform anyone wrongly about it, because I did not read i directly from source. But I heard it, it was Rowling who said this, while answering "why there was not a picture of Snape in Headmaster's room when they went there after Snape's death."

I love this. It's so funny! Dumbledore's little umbrella drink (which is my favorite part) and Snape's smirk are just perfect, plus her expression of almost-amused resignation. It's fantastic.

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:

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)
