He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother by Catching-Smoke He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother by Catching-Smoke
This is proof that I should organise my sketches and doodles more... I keep finding random little things that I've forgotten about.

I was going to make this into a proper drawing, but I started off drawing it too small so details were difficult and then it just looked nothing like I had imagined it in my head, which pissed me off no end. So I just put it to one side and forgot about it.
The idea is it's Fred's funeral and the remaining Weasley boys (and girl- you just can't see her in the picture since I drew it WRONG. Grumble) are carrying his casket.
And although I've called this He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother, the song I always think about when I imagine Fred's funeral is Timshel by Mumford & Sons.

I suggest you listen to it, and listen to the lyrics carefully, they are beautifully perfect. Just imagine the Weasley boys singing it (for some reason or another I just think that all or most of them can sing well). I've interpreted the lyrics a little differently than they were intended but I think it fits reasonably okay.

Mumford and Sons- Timshel

Cold is the water
It freezes your already cold mind
Already cold, cold mind
And death is at your doorstep
And it will steal your innocence
But it will not steal your substance

But you are not alone in this
And you are not alone in this
As brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand
Hold your hand

And you are the mother
The mother of your baby child
The one to whom you gave life
And you have your choices
And these are what make man great
His ladder to the stars

But you are not alone in this
And you are not alone in this
As brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand
Hold your hand

And I will tell the night
Whisper, "Lose your sight"
But I can't move the mountains for you

You have done your job well. You hit me to the core. Great job in-cooperating the brothers. Now if you'll excuse me I think I'll sit in the metaphoric corner and cry.
