Black Sisters by Catching-Smoke Black Sisters by Catching-Smoke
A celebratory doodle since I've submitted all my year projects for assessment!

It's of Andromeda Tonks (Née Black) and Narcissa Malfoy (Née Black) and baby Teddy.

I am really fascinated by the Black sisters. Each one of them took a different life-path and each one of them has completely differing personalities. I'm intrigued as to whether Narcissa would attempt to contact her estranged sister after the Battle of Hogwarts. I think she would.
Narcissa and Draco Malfoy dont seem to me like evil types, and neither does Lucius if I'm honest. What they are is rather selfish, prideful cowards, therefore they take the any route that will ensure their own survival. Although I believe Lucius is the worst of the three, I think Narcissa and Draco are just scared.
Generalising from a psychologist point of view, it is all about our 'fight or flight' response, the large majority of us will choose 'flight', which is exactly what Narcissa seems to have done through her life, whereas Andromeda chose 'fight'. The problem is once we use a certain response a lot of us will continue to go back to that same response over and over and it becomes habitual and safe.

Why am I rambling about this? Because I like to think that after the war, once Bellatrix is dead and Harry has won, Narcissa re-evaluates what is important and at least tries to make some kind of amends with her sister.
Especially now that her sister Andromeda has lost her husband, only daughter and son-in-law and now has to raise baby Teddy (with help from his godfather).

It's what I like to believe anyway...

I don't know why I've written all this, I think I'm a little delirious from lack of sleep, I've been awake and working non-stop for over 30 hours...

I love Andromeda.

NB I know they don't look their ages, I tried but they looked weird so I made them forever young :aww:

yes...but Adromeda Black was mother to Nymphadora Tonks...who has Teddy then. Plus, during the battle, Tonks is killed by her aunt Bellatrix. .-. Good art, though.

I love Narcissa! She truly cherishes the ones she loves. If you read DH, when Voldemort orders Narcissa to check if Harry's dead, she knows he's alive. But she asked if Draco, her son was alive and back at Hogwarts. Harry said yes, and Narcissa told the Death Eaters and Voldemort that Harry was dead. So she's not really evil.

I love the passion and emotion of this picture. Andromeda, holding little Ted, shouting at Narcissa that it's too late. She's already lost her husband, daughter, and son-in-law. And Narcissa tries to make amends. My heart has broken!

The point is that this is after the Battle of Hogwarts imagining that Narcissa would look up Andromeda, who would by this time be looking after Teddy

This is so lovely. I, too, am fascinated by the relationship that is the black sisters. As you mentioned, they each chose different paths, different ideologies. I think that all three of them are extremely complex in different ways, and are one of the best dynamics within the Harry Potter series. You've really done this relationship justice, so I really praise you for that. :)

Yeah, I have to agree with you. I don't like Narcissa, but I do think that she would feel bad for her sister and try to make amends with her

I believe in Cissy and Andy reconciling as well. I don't really think that Narcissa or Draco where ever truly bad people. they just were raised to think whats wrong is right.

I really like your concept about their relationship, and it doesn"t really matter they look younger than they should be, the emotions are well portrayed here.
I love Andromeda too. She must be an amazing person.

I'd really love to know more about Andromeda's past. I think she's a very interesting character we have hardly known...

Sorry if there are grammar mistakes or something, I'm spaniard >.<
