Art and the graveyard!
Starting off, liret requested Tonks and Moody Auror-ing:

Also, today my mother and I checked out the little tiny local cemetery. It's not really in use any more, as there's a larger one further along-- the latest death dates I saw were 1911-ish? There were a lot of inscriptions that I am sure were cool...if only I could have read them. But they were difficult to read!

Also, for the Carnivale fans out there, there were a ton of Scudders in the graveyard. I looked for a Henry but to no avail. That would have been AWESOME. The best part was that the entire lawn is all nice and trimmed-- except around the Scudder graves, which are totally buried by overgrown bushes and violets that were obviously planted a long time ago and then left un-tended.

(Bigelow is the name of the road we live on)

The father and mother have...essentially the same name! Woo!

This is one of the Scudders!

More Scudders!

I liked these ones especially because the first is the first wife. The second is the husband, who died after the first wife at age 57. The third is the SECOND WIFE who was only in her 20s when the husband died...and lived to 78. I totally think she married the rich old dude and killed him off for his money. The first two tombstones have long inscriptions on them, but the last says only:

I really just like how the mold on this one makes it look like it says "Our Father & Your Mother."

That's all. I totally just saw a cute little animal that looked like a woodchuck run through the yard! Wooooo woodchucks. Wooooo nature. It is so neat to spend time in a place where animals really run through the backyard-- real animals, not just squirrels and sparrows. We get an eagle and a couple of hawks, geese, and we had deer the other day. I love feeling like I can really get the best of both the city and the...well, not quite rural and not quite suburban life. I just love being at the new house.

If I was death eater, I would be very, very afraid.

Re: Henry and Henrietta - my grandfather's parents were Joseph and Josephene.

Also: This graveyard would be useful if you ever had the urge to re-enact key scenes from GoF.


And Joe and Josephine! Like the grandparents in Charlie and the Chocolate factory!

That picture is too cute! I love the pig nose.

Your photos are really pretty. I love looking at old gravestones.

I had a lot of fun animating it! I just can't decide if this takes place pre- or post- fake death.

Oh, neat pictures! I like looking at gravestones and seeing what people choose to put there.

Also, hurrah for Carnivale! *shudder* for the Scudder graves.

This reminds me that I need to seek out Carnivale icons.

Ooooh I should make some icons!

And yeah, me too. I was disappointed that it was hard to read a lot of them.

That's your best fanart yet. I might have to request something from you once your request load gets down again.

And is it bad that I laughed out loud at that last tombstone?

I totally THOUGHT it said "Your Mother" when I was walking through the graveyard, man!

Then I realized it didn't & was greatly relieved!

But a little disappointed.

And thank you! That is rather smart of you as I have a list now and usually when I start doing requests they peter out and the people at the bottom never get them.

That fanart is fantastic!! I LOVE it. Especially Moody's magical eye. Awesome job! :D

I really love your first pic in the graveyard - SO pretty. The gravestone's not too bad, either.

Ahahaha thank you! And that gravestone belongs to Fannie someone.

God, I love the Tonks and Moody picture, that's fantastic!! Maybe I should start drawing every day too, but I don't think I'd ever manage so many cute and creative ideas as you do... XD

I don't! I ask other people to give me the ideas!

Ha! I saw Moody and was like "Hee. Moody." and then Tonks popped out and I cracked up. :D

Those cemetery photos are awesome!

I can totally see Tonks doing the Verizon Guy thing, but with Moody's Eye:

"Can you see me now?"


"Good. Can you see me now?"


Oh,Henry Scudder is a character in Carnivale who is an extremely powerful magician.

I love the animation. Please, do continue in cementing my denial of the existence of sixth- and seventh-book Tonks.

And it took me to find the eludication brought by your caption to that 'Our Father & Our Mother' tombstone - that is, I spent about thirty seconds pondering the relative probabilities of a 'Your Mom' joke on a gravestone versus a mid-life sex-change.
