Beautiful art and story and the combination of those with the music makes for such a delightful, beautiful and heart warming tale.

Oh, I liked that! It was a great story, and lovely art work, and the music was beautiful too. What an original and romantic idea. I especially liked Draco's dream, and the way Harry's conversations with people carried the story along. And the music, always in the background. All the <3 for this one. *happy sighs*

And <3 for this lovely review! Thanks so much for commenting, and i'm so pleased you liked it :D (though it was actually Harry's dream, sorry that it wasn't clear enough!)

This is absolutely gorgeous. And just perfect! I don't even know if I can express how delighted and moved I am. Floored, really.

*pause to compose myself* (There may have been a happy tear or two.)

I've watched three times now, each time catching more of my little prompts and details and such. I can't believe how many you worked in; Luna, and wings, and potions Draco and Harry with coffee and...the list goes on and on. And the Brahms, of course, the Brahms! What a beautiful choice to accompany the story. It's fits so perfectly.

(You must have a background in music! You do, don't you?)

Oh, and the art? Can we talk about the art for a moment? Just stunning. Each scene is so very lovely. I loved the color and the small details--so creative, all those little touches--and the dream scene and the one at the end when they're together. Gah! Gorgeous. I love the Hermione and Pansy cameos, as well. And what a sweet, perfect story. Delightful, truly.

I really can't tell you how grateful I am that I was the lucky recipient of such a beautiful gift. I absolutely adore it. (And I think I might just be the luckiest hols recipient ever.)

Thank you. Thankyouthankyouthankyou.

Honey, I am SO SORRY but the embed wasn't working from when it was originally posted. It needs to be viewed much bigger than it shows up on the youtube page (so click fullscreen) which is why I embedded it. However, with LJ being a douchebag it ate the embed when we edited to post to the comm. I didn't mean for you to have to click the link.

I've fixed the embed and hopefully all goes smoothly now. My apologies!

This is lovely. I like the idea of heart music.

Just recced on my journal, bb...this is just as stunning as it was when I first saw it. I am so blown away by the gracefulness, the way the music fits the story and mood so perfectly, the characterization (Luna! I love your Luna, seeing what others don't. And that little cameo by Pansy is so fab I can't even. Plus portrait!Snape! Eeeeeee!). I don't know how you manage to infuse a lightness and a warm, delicate humor into what is also a heart-grabbing romance, but you do, and I feel like I could just look at it on repeat endlessly. I said in my rec that any one of the panels could have been a Hols entry, and to have all of them, plus the monochromatic middle one (trying not to be spoilerish!) and THEN THE LAST ONE WHICH IS A;LSDA;SDFAJSFA;;LAJKSDFKA;S;, oh, it's more than I can express even with capslocky keysmash. Beautiful, sensitive, gorgeous work, and somehow especially appropriate for the last Hols. ♥
icmezzo: pic#114764502icmezzo on December 4th, 2012 12:58 am (UTC)
Gah! WHAT YOU SAID. This piece is so lovely. I don't even have words to express...

Every damn scene would have been a fantastic gift, to get this gorgeous package? I'm beside myself. Clearly.

*happy sigh*

So beautiful! The music goes so well. I especially loved the last picture.

THanks so much! Have to admit I like the last one best myself :) Glad you liked it!

That was lovely! I really liked the last image - Harry and Draco are beautiful and the details in the background are amazing! I love the two paintings.
HallowDraconis: pic#112136807hallowdraconis on February 4th, 2013 04:42 am (UTC)

This was absolutely stunning on so many levels. I loved the way the music, art, and story worked together. The slide of Draco's dream reminds me of a Chagall (although I can't remember which one). Lovely work.
HallowDraconis: pic#112136807hallowdraconis on February 4th, 2013 04:43 am (UTC)
Oh, thanks for a lovely review! (though it's Harry's dream, I'm sorry it wasn't done clearly enough!) I'm so pleased you liked it, thanks! :D

Jad: HMS Guns n Handcuffs || H/Djad on December 4th, 2012 02:06 am (UTC)
That was beautifully done :) All of the artwork was amazing, and much have taken SO much work - not only in colour, but the detail you put into the backgrounds, the expressions, their clothing... GUH. This must have taken you AGES. And the piece at the end! (pastels, I think?) So beautifully blended and smooth, it was truly amazing. Kudos!

Thank you so much for such an awesome review! (last pic is acrylic paint, I suck at pastels D:) I'm so glad you liked it and left such a lovely comment :D
call me trys: me myself and Itryslora on December 4th, 2012 02:20 am (UTC)
Oh that was beautiful. I can't even imagine how long it took to create each individual intricate wonderful piece. And the story you told came through beautifully without needing a lot of words; the art was incredible expressive. It makes me want to go back to pick out the details that I have missed the first time through. Wonderful. Major kudos.

Oh, lovely. The story fit the music so well (great choice in pieces -- I love Brahms) -- thank you!

The music is so lovely isn't it? Thanks so much for such a lovely comment - thank YOU :D

Completely stunning and I'll eat my keyboard if I'm wrong about the identity of this artist. Just beautiful.
HallowDraconis: pic#112136807hallowdraconis on February 4th, 2013 04:47 am (UTC)
Hm, I don't have the pleasure of knowing you personally, so I guess I can only offer you some Ranch dressing to go with the keyboard? ^_~ Seriously however, I'm so pleased you liked this, and thank you very much for a lovely comment!

...come on. I gotta know who you thought it was :D
Sebastian: H/D Equus manipkabal42 on December 4th, 2012 03:40 am (UTC)
Wow… I can honestly say I've never seen anything quite like it. Music in fanfic and art is one of my great loves, and this just takes it to a higher level. What a lovely, beautiful story! Great choice of music too.

ETA: I recced this at my journal over here on DW.

Oh, thank you so much for such a lovely review, and you even recced it?! wow! And such a wonderful rec, too, I'm truely happy and flattered! Thank you so very, very much! :D
la, zeitgeist!: [default] z decemberzeitgeistic on December 4th, 2012 03:45 am (UTC)
What a superb idea! I love that you set your own art to video. Having the music play in the background was the perfect finishing touch.
HallowDraconis: pic#112136807hallowdraconis on February 4th, 2013 04:49 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! When icmezzo had Brahms as a prompt, it just seemed like a good idea :) I'm so pleased you liked it, thank you!

Wow, wow, wow. This is gorgeous. I love the music, and the drawings are exquisite. My favorite is how warm and comfortable and sated that ending pose is.
HallowDraconis: pic#112136807hallowdraconis on February 4th, 2013 04:50 am (UTC)
Thank you so very much! The last pic (the main pic, in my mind) is my fave too :D You got the feelings I was trying to experss there, so I'm so pleased it worked! Thank you again :)
Mijan: H/D Chibis: My room or yours?mijan on December 4th, 2012 04:20 am (UTC)
It's been a long time since I read, watched, or looked at any H/D fanworks. Busy with other fandoms. But I saw this recced on my f-list, and so I decided to take a peek. This was gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. Creative, and very different. *applauds* Thank you for sharing, oh mystery artist/author!
HallowDraconis: pic#112136807hallowdraconis on February 4th, 2013 04:51 am (UTC)
I'm so pleased you liked it! Thank you so much for taking the time to review, and I'm glad you thought it creative! Thanks so much :D
