.:Travel by Floo:. by shigure-kisune .:Travel by Floo:. by shigure-kisune
The Weasleys arrive at the Dursley's by Floo powder.

~*~*~*~*~*

"What is it?" gasped Aunt Petnunia, who had backed into the wall and was staring, terrified, toward the fire. "What is it, Vernon?"

But they were left in doubt barely a second longer. Voices could be heard from inside the blocked fireplace.

"Ouch! Fred,no---go back, go back, there's been some kind of mistake---tell George not to---OUCH! George, no, there's no room, go back quickly and tell Ron---"

"Maybe Harry can hear us, Dad---maybe he'll be able to let us out---"

There was a loud hammering of fists on the boards behind the electric fire.

"Harry? Harry, can you hear us?"

Someone posted this as a link from the Harry Potter Companion and I adore this! It's just like I've always imagined it to be, with them stuck in a fireplace and unable to really make out anything. I just wonder how Mr. Weasley wants them to get back out...

lol I'm glad you liked it. I actually was surprised at how it turned out for the short amount of time I actually ended up spending on it.... which wasn't terribly long. But it's definitely got the comedic quality that I thought of when I read that scene in the book!

Well, it looks lovely and if you spent less time on it, awesome! I really do like how you drew the Weasleys.

This scene tends to make me laugh, so I'm glad I have a visual now that fits. ^.^

Hee hee hee, you're right. I deliberately chose the scene because it wasn't often drawn. It was a contest submission a long time ago and I was tired of seeing the cliche stuff. So I sat down and thought, "what's a scene that was really great but no one pays attention to?" And I came up with the Floo Powder scene with the Weasleys trapped in the fireplace. XD And it still makes me giggle thinking about it.

Yeah, I borrowed a chiaroscuro technique of defining the shapes in a picture ONLY by shadow and highlight. (Da Vinci was a huge fan of it.) I used to do it all the time but stopped. I find it's perfect for a situation like that, though.

Poor weasley boys :D I wonder if they'll put this bit in the next movie? Maybe they'll just skip it - they're going to have to cram so much into the next movie that it'll hardly be surprising if they do....

I have a feeling they might. I already have heard the rumor that Molly Weasely has been cut ENTIRELY out of the next movie. She was put in parts but then they took all of her out. I think it's gonna piss a lot of people off because she's the ONLY mother figure around.

Wow. That's such a pity. It's amazing how much they're actually going have to cut though to make sure it's not going to be a 6 hour long movie or something. I mean I remember the third movie was cut so much that if you hadn't read the books you wouldn't have had a clue what was going with the marauders map and the history of it and all. & then the fourth book is even longer to make it even harder!

Oh yes... I know. I had to EXPLAIN it to my sister who's never read the books. Well, aside from that.. I had to explain that Lupin wasn't a pedophile and offering chocolate to all the little boys and girls to earn their trust. No, it was magic chocolate. And my biggest problem with that is that it takes HALF of a sentence to explain the chocolate so he doesn't look like a child molesting freak.... and they didn't do it. o_O
