Fox Ears: the fun-eral by olafpriol Fox Ears: the fun-eral by olafpriol
An illustration for a scene very close to the end of this gobsmackingly, jawdroppingly, heartbreakingly fantastic fanfiction; [link] written by :iconthe-starhorse: , who is as talented a draghtsman as she is an author.

Now, I am something of an avid reader, and I do not make this statement out of levity when I say that this fiction is one of the greatest pieces of writing I have ever encountered. A superb craft of wit and imagination, written to a standard of quality that truely rivals J.K.'s own style, if not excells it. Please, go and read it, I think I walked about three inches above the floor for hours after I read it.

A small section to explain the above madness XD

"Sometime during the day, Fred had acquired a set of magenta robes, a grilling fork that had been transfigured into a scepter, and a truly revolting crown that someone had placed on his head in a sort of hilarious re-Fredding ceremony, over which George had presided as Saint and Pope."

... and yes, I know I gave him a spatula instead of a fork, it just looked sillier, sorry! ^_^ Damn my artistic license...

LOL this made me go and read the fic, and i can't believe how perfect this is

Weasley twins FTW

....Is Hermione not there on purpose?
Oh, we love Fox-Ears, and found this totaly by accident! That fic is our new cannon.
George: Because no George should ever be without their Fred! (and Freds would just blow themselves up without their Georges there to stop them) *glomps Fred*

Fred: -_-' would you get OFF of me woman!!! I would not blow myself up without you.

George: remember that time in Chemistry class-

Fred: LOL Eliza didnt have eyebrows for like, ever...ok, I see your point. Now...GET OFF!

(No, we are NOT the Weasley twins. Fred & George were our nicknames long before HP. Though its a kickass coincidence)
kamcd711 Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2011
I almost didn't read the fanfic because I don't typically read HP fanfiction.
0_0 I am so glad I did. I have never loved fanfiction more--and that story actually /worked/, unlike my numerous and desperate attempts to explain away the de-Fredding. (One theory /did/ involve a timeturner, but it was no where near a real story.)
And as for the picture-it's as brilliant as the fanfic. :D :iconfredweasleyplz: Fred's always been my favorite. Long live the twins!! *shouts something about it being a frabjous day*
bandgeek112 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes! I read the fanfic and I can't believe how awesome it was!!!! :D It was incredibly witty and stuff.

ANYWAY back to the drawing- the "madness", as you called it. 'Tis excellent! I love all their expressions! And Bill is facepalming, right? anyway, love it!!!

Back to the picamature. I love your style! Everyone's expressions are fantastic! I love how Harry is wiping tears of mirth from his eyes. George's entire ensemble... I LOVE IT! :DDD

i was so happy that i nearly cried when i read this fanfic... among one of the best things i've ever read. and this picture is amazing.

I cried like a baby. ; )
KatelynD Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2009
everytime I read "fox-ears" I get horribly sad, then end up laughing ou of sheer glee.

and I am a firm believer in Re-Fredding day...someone should get James in on this XD

point being, awesome, gorgeous, hilairious work here. one of the best parts of the entire fic.
BreathOfNocte Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2009
Just read Fox Ears, and I am floating on SUCH a Twin-High right now - and this totally captures the chaotic awesomeness i'm sure that party was.
HideTheDecay Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow. It's funny you're describing the fanfic so. I've just been rereading what I consider to be the best Harry Potter fanfic in existance, for basically the same reasons you stated. I'm very interested in that one now, and will be reading it. If you're interested in mine, it's The Marriage Stone by Josephine Darcy (on It has like 11,000+ reviews and for good reason. It's rather incredible.

I can't believe I'm advertising a fanfic on your picture. I apologize, I just feel it's my duty to share it with the world.

I love this peice. I've always have been a fan of your drawings and style. I've been watching you for quite some time now.
olafpriol Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009
Hey no worries! I'm always willing to read new stuff, and if it's ever described as 'rather incredible' then I'm pretty much sold- I'll go check that out as soon as I can :3 Thanks for the heads up!
HideTheDecay Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow! I can't believe you replied. Not that I think you're some stuck up artist who believes themself better then that, but I always geek out a little bit when my favorites talk to me.
I promise you won't be disappointed! ...Well, I do feel I should warn you...techncially it's a Snarry fic. I've tried to get my friends to read it and the moment I tell them that they are instantly turned off. I don't know if you're a fan, indifferent, or if that grosses you out, BUT if it's the ladder, I can tell you that it's really slow moving. I mean, in rereading it, I'm on chapter 37 and they're only 'really' realizing they have feelings. If you could just look past the Snarry's worth it. Seriously.
Okay! I'm done trying to convince you, haha. I could probably go on all day.
MoonlitShadow76 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2009
...That made me cry XD I'm not sure why but darnnit it was sweet. Thank you for spreading that.

fuzzball-de-goof Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2009
i read the fic. best thing ever, the writing was better then J.K. herself. Thank you for showing me that awesome piece of the twins :D
Luke-Krause Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009
I read that fan-fic!

It is really good,
And I think that, as you said, The writing style phenomenal.

It'll give JKR a run for her money.

THAT is forever how I want to imagine Fred and George.
TMNTno1fan Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009
I can't think of words good enough for this pic... *highpitched fangirl SQUEEEEAAAL* Everybody's expressions are so awesome! Except... I thought Ginny was Hermionie for a second... :ohmygod: dumb me, but in my defense, the expression is Hermionie-ish!
Bairbre-the-Angel Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2009
lmao! everyone is l;aughin while the twins look serious! I thought it'd be the other way around! LOL

That's a picture as awesome as the story ;D

Seriously, I have never read a better fanfic than this, and if you, the one who wrote, are reading this among the other comments, I would like to say... well, it's an extremely, incredibly, impressingly, and completly splendid fanfic, that you should have a great reward for!

I love that story! I had read it already before I found your drawing. Fred and George are so cute!
Leaviel Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2008  Hobbyist Artist
...gah... I was riffling through old favs and such (though this isn't that old) and found this again...
I think my favorite part of this is George... that wonderful pompous expression! :D
olafpriol Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2008
Of course! Re-Fredding is a very serious buisness afterall :nod:
Leaviel Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2008  Hobbyist Artist
:nod: oh indeed!
I'm doing my best to start recruiting Wizard Rock bands for re-Fredding purposes too...
damn... I'm taking this more seriously than my school-work... ^^;

Let the Re-Fredding begin! :boogie: This picture has so much emotion and love in it, you can really tell with the facial expressions. You have truly conquered the art of expression! Long live Fred Weasley!
