Well, finally! So it's parts three and four of the comic.

Hope you like and thanks for the comments and help with my grammar!



These chapters are the last ones with flashbacks to the parents' time (there's another one but it's happier).

Also, OMG, 5 days until A Dance with Dragons is out! I'm going to be in geek heaven when I start reading it :)

gah, I haven't had to work that hard to hold back tears in a long while >.<
I always get excited though when my inbox shows there's been an update to this, haha
it's a really wonderful story and I can't wait to see more ^^

P.S. The link for page 29 of Part 4 leads to page 28 again instead =p

Hi there! I just fixed the last page! Yeah, too many links. My copy/pasting abilities are going downhill ;)

And thank you!

Jesus, break my heart, why don't you? *sniffles* This is epic, and so many of the panels are so powerful, especially the way you use body language.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on July 8th, 2011 12:20 am (UTC)
Sorry! Next chapter is almost all comic relief. I swear! :)

And thank you!

Part 3
Page 3 - 'We would only see her during visiting hours.
Page 7 - Beautiful perspective use! I love the foreshortening of Percival's arm! Silly, but there you go. ;)
Page 10-16 - I'd forgotten how intense this bit was; God, his poor family.
Page 16 - 'muggles' should be 'muggle'
Page 17 - 'There's three muggles' should be 'There are three muggles'

A very intense section! Again, I love how you use the wands as staffs. They are far more dynamic that way. :)


Part 4
Page 1 - God, he looks so desolate sitting there by himself. Then he just completely brightens at the sight of his family.
Page 4 - The determination of youth!!
Page 5 - Abe looks SO sad. :(
Page 7 - Hurts my heart to see those childish expectations dashed so completely.
Page 9/Panel 3 - 'playing dumb when there's lives at stake, it's probably the' should be 'playing dumb when there's lives at stake .. it's probably the' or something similar. The coma that comes after 'stake' is awkward.
Page 12/Panel 5 - 'No-thinking' should be 'not thinking'
Page 13 - God, he couldn't even hug his family. ;___;
Page 16 - See, Abe .. he loves you just as much!!
Page 18 - AWESOME perspective!!!
Page 20 - Heartbreaking, but beautifully human. ;__;
Page 24/Panel 5 - 'And not like whatever Azkaban turns you into' should be 'And not like whatever Azkaban turns me into.'
Page 27 - God, my heart just broke for them all over again.

As always, stunning work, hun! The limited color pages throughout are gorgeous. These were two super emotional parts to read and you did a fantastic job with the portrayal of emotions and the attention to detail. On of the things I love about your artwork is the attention to detail, like in Percival's cell: all the bricks drawn in. BEAUTIFUL.

Keep up the amazing work.

Alma! You so rock! I just made the corrections (I think I got them all).

I'm going to start preparing those Snape pics, then. :) You might want to think if there's something in particular that you want.

You have no clue how happy it makes me that you'll help me. Awesome!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

*hugs*

oohh it just broke my heart!!! beautiful colors!!
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on July 8th, 2011 04:08 am (UTC)
Sorry! Next chapter is pretty much all comic relief, to compensate a bit. :) And thank you!
Leochileochi on July 8th, 2011 06:03 am (UTC)
This is such a wonderful work! I especially admire the way you alternate between detailed surroundings which I really love, and very simple to non-existing backgrounds.
Your style is also wonderful. I'm usually not much into manga, but yours are such lovely drawings that I could look at them every day.
Both parents are so beautiful, and the kids are all adorable.

Wonderful work, kudos! <333

And thanks for posting and sharing, too! I've discovered your art at DA and was completely blown away. :D
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on July 8th, 2011 01:10 pm (UTC)
I'm usually not much into manga

Hehe, I was not into manga either until I started reading Naruto. And it all went downhill from there. :)

I'm really very glad that you like how I drew the characters and that you like the story.

You have a DA account too?

And thank you for your comment!

The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore
Dear woman, you're killing me with this comic! The panels are gorgeous and with such a great eye to details. I love how you tell Percival's story behind the scenes, and each character comes across so believable and real. I loved how he tried to lighten the mood and help his boys say goodbye. And it broke my heart how his wrists were bound so that he couldn't even hug his family for a last time. *lip tremble*

This comic is a wonderful illustration of missing canon and I can't wait for the next installment.

Re: The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore
Hello! I'm truly very happy that the story works well. Particularly, these two chapters. There was a lot of dialogue and not too much action, so I was not sure if the pacing was slowing down too much.

And, yeah, poor people, I wouldn't like to be in their shoes.

As always, thank you for reading and for all your comments! :)

This is great. Heartbreaking though :'(
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on July 8th, 2011 11:18 pm (UTC)
When I read DH I thought it was an incredibly sad story. Way too sad. :(

And thank you!
Moonylittle_werewolf on July 8th, 2011 08:32 am (UTC)
What a beautiful and sad update!
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on July 8th, 2011 11:19 pm (UTC)
I promise the next chapter is not so sad. It's almost all comic relief to compensate a bit. :)

And thank you!

So yay! And, as always, thank you! :)

A Dance with Dragons, yessss, finally

I'm crying. Seriously.
You are not a person. You are a real witch, I think.
How can you draw such beautiful things?!
I have always thought of Kendra as a woman with red hair and pale skin, but yours is a beautiful Kendra.
Percival is exactly how I imagined him.
And the kids... are absolutely adorable.
The final scenes are harrowing [is it the right word?]... I love the fact that some pages are colored.
The image of the discovery of Ariana gave me chills.
You really have talent! I've almost heartbreaking.
I look forward to the fifth part!
a kiss!

caladan_ddcaladan_dd on July 10th, 2011 01:20 am (UTC)
Ahem, I promise next chapter is going to be happier. I really didn't mean to make anybody feel so sad. *runs for her life*

I have always thought of Kendra as a woman with red hair and pale skin

LOL Me too! In fact, originally, I drew her that way. Then, somebody told me in the books she's described as looking like Native American. It's in the chapter where Harry is looking at a family picture.

Thank you!

*kisses*

ugh, gutted. But in the best way! This is so fabulous and beautiful. I'm always so happy to see when you've updated. This is going to end up being one of my favorite fanworks. I can tell already. ♥

Heee! Thank you! And next chapter is all comic relief to compensate a bit. :)

I am so, so amazed by these. Storywise it's so rich. And it's SO gorgeous. I want Kendra's clothing (I love her sleeves), I'm just astounded by the despair in Percival's expressions, and little Albus's big-eyed face just breaks me into pieces every time I see it.
caladan_ddcaladan_dd on July 10th, 2011 02:04 am (UTC)
Thank you! So very happy the story works. These two chapters in particular were killing me. I wasn't all that sure how they'd turn up (pacing is a big issue for me).

And Kendra's clothing is way too much fun to design. :)
