He pulled me close and put his arms awkwardly around me. "Sev," I said warningly. I pressed my hand flat against his chest to push him away and felt his heart running hummingbird fast, 180 beats a minute at least. Laughing, I looked up into his face. "You're terrified," I told him.
He could not deny it. "Well. Well, I'm not a Gryffindor, am I?"
"No," I said, agreeing and disagreeing at once. Aaaah! I've never been this close to him. Touching him...
"Yes," he insisted. "I know you feel as I do. Just try me. Come on. Try me."

SpiritArcherMagnificently done. I love how you've used the brushes and textures, it makes the picture seem more real. Since there eyes are connecting, I have a more powerful feel of what they're thinking and feeling. The one thing I love most of all from this, is the hair. I love how the hair on the both of them looks, it seems real. Snape's hairs layered, something I've never seen done before (that I can remember) and Lily's is just gorgeous.

Beautifully done, :] I'll be faving this now..
