Happy H/D Holidays, furiosity!  
Artist: djinniyah
Recipient: furiosity
Title: These Nineteen Years
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny
Summary: When desire is bound to sorrow, who is it a man becomes?
Rating: R
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. All indented text is excerpted from the poem The Invitation, property of Oriah Mountain Dreamer. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): Non-explicit m/m sex, partial nudity, infidelity.
Deathly Hallows compliant? Yes (epilogue included).
Image count: 8 drawings + text.
Author's Notes: I was unable to fulfill all of your requests as a writer would have done, furiosity, but I hope you still find this satisfying and to your taste. My primary goal was to stick to canon, which necessitated what became the theme of these drawings: an exploration of infidelity and passing time. And as with any narrative contained within images, I've implied far more than I've depicted. The end result is, I hope, both honest and ambiguous. ♥




     It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me
     is true.

(the third year)


(the seventh year)


(the eighth year)

     I want to know if you can
     disappoint another
     to be true to yourself,

     if you can bear the accusation of betrayal
     and not betray your own soul.

(the eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth... and...)





     If you can be faithless
     and therefore trustworthy.

(the nineteenth year)

     It doesn't interest me who you know
     or how you came to be here.

(... and...)

     I want to know if you will stand
     in the centre of the fire
     with me
     and not shrink back.

     (I want to know what you ache for)

What a splendid way to start this off! I like the use of light here and the way you've echoed colors and postures across the different pictures. The snippets of text are a nice reflection of the uncertainty of the images, too.

Thank you so much! Quite a few people have mentioned the "uncertainty" of these drawings, and that is exactly the sort of vibe I'd wanted, so hurrah!

Wow, that is stirring. I love the simplicity of the slides, and yet they exude such powerful emotion. Wonderful job!
Jinn-ninnydjinniyah on January 7th, 2008 03:46 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much. I love mixing simplicity/starkness with heavy, implied things. :)

Oh, so freaking gorgeous. That last picture, along with the final stanza, is just perfect. What an awesome way to start the fest! :D
Jinn-ninnydjinniyah on January 7th, 2008 03:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much. Originally, in the last picture, Harry was kissing Draco's neck... but at the last minute, I made him grit his teeth, a little. It seems to fit rather better. ♥

!!! Yes! What a wonderful start.
Beautiful drawings and poems, they flowed so well together! :)

Thank you! ♥

Oh this is gorgeous. I particularly love the picture of Harry and Draco with Albus Severus and Scorpius. I love the way you imply the story. Wonderful.

Thank you very much! ♥

Simply fabulous. I love your attention detail - specifically how Harry seems to be hiding behind Ginny and how his and Draco's wedding rings stand out in stark contrast in the third-to-last photo.

Thank you! ♥

Well Done!

*fangirl squee* Words are not needed. So much emotion and uncertainty is expressed in these drawings, it's completely tangible. Definitely a great way to start off this round!
Jinn-ninnydjinniyah on January 7th, 2008 03:56 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! ♥ I was going for uncertainty and emotion, so I'm so pleased they're what struck you in the pictures. :)

These are gorgeous. Absolutely bloody gorgeous. They are so emotionally evocative. I'm blown away.

Thank you so much! ♥

Holy cow. I have tears in my eyes from the pictures alone and text? the text??? makes me whimper. Absolutely fucking gorgeous.
Jinn-ninnydjinniyah on January 7th, 2008 03:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you. ♥ I went through a lot of potential poems to try to fit to this story in my head, but this one just clicked; it was just enough ache and reproach. :)

:) Thanks so much! It's always fun to add those little details in - and in such a stark set of photos, each becomes rather significant, in a way.

This is so awesome!

I keep staring and staring at the profile of Draco, cup held to his lips. And then I scroll down and stare some more.

Beautiful job! :D
Jinn-ninnydjinniyah on January 7th, 2008 04:00 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! ♥ I love drawing profiles, especially the lips. :D
