You requested Jily, so Jily it is!! This took freaking forever, im not good at drawing people in profile and decided to add a background too so I was literally drawing for hours and hours. They’re having a fancy little autumn picnic 🍂
Bathilda Bagshot leads Albus into her library. It is stuffy in the room, and bits of dust fly around in the afternoon light that is seeping through the thick curtains.
“My boy, Albus Dumbledore is here to see you,” Bathilda calls before leaving the two alone.
Albus glances around the library in an effort to keep clear his head before responding. It’s a beautiful room, despite the dust and darkness, filled to the brim with books and knowledge. A stark contrast to the small stack of dated literature on a shelf in his own house…
Albus’s gaze finally slides back to Gellert at this, and he can’t manage to hide his mild surprise or amusement quite quick enough.
Person A makes a love potion for the person they like; however, their rival (person B) accidentally drinks it instead. When nothing happens, person A assumes they made it wrong. Until they give the rest of it to their friend as a joke, assuming it’s useless, and it works extremely well. A is dumbfounded..
Albus is sitting in his study, unable to focus on his work. He was hoping to catch a glimpse of the mysterious man in the graveyard, but the man hasn’t shown up that day and it is all Albus can think about when he hears a knock on his door.
He tries to ignore it, but the visitor knocks again, a bit more impatiently.
Annoyed and not wanting to be disturbed, Albus opens the door, but any word of refusal instantly dies on his tongue as he sees who the insistent visitor is.
Albus: *tries to compose himself*
Gellert: -Here I am.
Gellert: *eyes light up in recognition*
Gellert: Albus. May I call you Albus? I’ve recently read your latest article in Transfiguration Today-
Albus: *is surprised that anyone actually read his article*
Gellert: *launches into a one sided discussion of the article at hand*
Gellert: *realizes that Albus is still looking slightly confused and far from sharing his excitement*
Albus: I’m just surprised that someone found it interesting…
Gellert: The didn’t? Well…
Gellert: *fastens his eyes on Albus for a second too long*
Albus: *fidgets nervously under Gellert’s gaze*

“[Voldemort] can punish them. Couple of kids more or less, what’s the difference?”
“Only the difference between truth and lies, courage and cowardice,” said Professor McGonagall, who had turned very pale. “A difference, in short, which you and your sister seem unable to appreciate. But let me make one thing very clear. You are not going to pass off your many ineptitudes on the students of Hogwarts. I shall not permit it.”
