Deathly Hallows Spoiler 2 by Helen-M Deathly Hallows Spoiler 2 by Helen-M
Nooo! Lupin and Tonks died! ("Nymphadora [bloody] Lupin" will always be Tonks to me, one of my favourite characters! Huh. How could TONKS have a baby (not talking literally here)? Maybe I'm just being immature, but I think that's obscene. TONKS!!?? It's just too un-Tonks-like. leave that to Mrs Weasley types).

Anyway, this is my own interpretation of their deaths, as in DH JKR never gives the details. Tonks's spacial awareness was always as good as mine, i.e. bad. Here she isn't paying attention to the large and malevolent Death Eater-like object behind her. No wonder. Ickle Lupin looks dead. Awww but I love Lupin too. I'm relatively pleased with how he turned out. Not so much Tonks, perhaps, and death eater dude is quite misshapen.

Still, tis realllly sad...

Usual medium: biro and coloured pencil, with a bit of editing on Paint.

Edit: thanks to photoshop for putting in what my scanner took out, and more. I will love you forever.

Tonks was killed by Bellatrix, her aunt. not a random death eater.

Tonks can have a baby because she loves Remus. I mean, if you were in love within someone, you'd want to have a baby with them, too! And this is beautiful, btw. Beautiful but very, very sad.

I think dolohov killed em both, before tonks asked aberforth had he seen lupin and he said he last saw him fighting dol and then tonks was worried and ran off looking for him...

Nice picture. It was very sad when they died, eh?

I think the point of Tonks having a baby was because her and Lupin were supposed to represent the Potters all over again ie. Harry was now Sirius, a godfather. Leaves a good plot behind for future stories including the second generation, see? :)

i'm pretty sure bellatrix killed tonks, seeing as she was so upset with her marring a warewolf at the beguinning...

don't get me wrong, i love tonks (she kicks arse) and lupin (he's such a sweetie), and i actually love bella too (skitzo-psyco-obsessive-power-mad-temptress, anyone?). but to me that makes more sence.

don't get me wrong, darling! this is fabulous! just thought i'd throw in my 2 cents. ^^ (no flames plz.)

Noooo! I cried so hard when it came to light that they had died. ;( Poor Ted. Now he is just like Harry - an orphanage. It seems really meaningful some way...like J. K. did it on purpose... I mean, that Ted would be in the same situation than Harry. And then Harry is also his godfather... Hmmm... The ending made me think that the series like screams a sequel - I know there's already one, but I'm not sure what does it tells about... - a longer sequel... Maybe about Ted. :)

Great job anyway! I like your drawing style. :)

Oops, it seems I can't write short comments... ^^'

Yeah JKR definitely did that on purpose, methinks, to add some sort of extra poignancy- I spose to avoid suggesting that the world is all um magical and rosy now that Voldie's gone, or sorta to bring the tale round full circle, as you point out. That's an aesthetic technique, appealing to our sense of symmetry/neatness, thereby giving us a sense of satisfaction that everything has been resolved. Have been studying English way too much lol

Thank you very much for commenting. I like comments of any description, but especially thoughtful ones like yours. ^^

Oh you're welcome. :) I have been thinking that thing about Ted a lot, but never have I told it to anyone so I decided that that artwork of yours was a perfect place to tell it. :P Of course I know that I'm not the only one who has been thinking about that... I think it's quite obvious so that very many have also noticed it.

I don't think so. I don't think she wasn't paying attention to the death-eaters! She's an auror! THIS is "un-Tonks-like".. I think she was claiming for revenge when she found her death. She was fighting, hardly, with all her soul, to have revenge. They killed the man she loved, and the father of her child. She could have killed each of them! =D
Just my interpretation =D

Hmm, technically neither of us is "right"- the bits left up to our imaginations are all relative. However, your interpretation is just as valid as mine. My reasoning goes that when she was in love with him before they got together it had a really bad effect on her and made her "untonks-like". So maybe she'd let down her guard for a bit if he died, I dunno. Anyway, thanks for commenting.

I wasn't saying your interpretation wasn't right, just mine was different XD However, yes, in that case, it could be, she actually became "untonks like", in that sense, when fell in love with Lup XD

Hm...I think JK said in an interview who killed them. I know Bellatrix killed Tonks. And I think Dolohov (sp?) killed Remus.

*bawls just thinking about it*

I loved she had a baby, untill I discovered they were killed of by Rowling. It messed up my hope for people who love eachother in difficult times. And I hate the trio for not killing of Bellatrix von Detta (Who killed Tonks) and Dolochov (who killed remus)...

But I always imaged they would be like this, good job on Tonks face.

JKR said in an interview after the book came out that tonks was killed by bella. but i like your interpretation of the scene, with her getting destracted.

I really liked tonks, until she fell for lupin. And I really liked lupin until he started making bad choices and whining.

Ahh I was so broken after I read that book. Remus has always been my favourite character since I read the third book. How could Rowling kill these two right after they had a child?! How could she?! :shakefist:

Very beautifil picture... I imagined their death exactly like that. Gee, I gotta make afanart of my fave character dying, too.

*buhuuuu* I just read HP7... you can't imagine how much I cried at the end =/ The picture is great, I just thought about drawing something like that too, because I was so upset when the two died... I love Lupin and Tonks, especially Lupin, who was there for Harry when all the others died and died... and then he died to... q___q but I read on a website that JKR said, that lupin was killed from dolohov and tonks from lestrange... just for information ^^
great picture, really!

I was so unbelievably frustrated that she gave them so little time in the book. I completely skipped over it the first time I read it, and thus would have been completely confused had I gone all the way to "The Forest Again", but something in my brain went "WHUT". I was already crying, but I had to stop reading when I finally got what'd happened.

I'd like to imagine that Tonks never saw Lupin dead... the emotion in this picture is stunning, as is the art, but I'd like to imagine that she... didn't know he was dead. Less hurt for her, you know?

Another note to add: though it was never stated explicitly in the book, we know who killed Tonks, but not Lupin. It was Bella who killed Tonks, as JKR revealed in a webchat not long ago.

I think she killed them to show how vicious war is; it doesnt care for those left behind/ the victims etc, war kills everything in sight, everything is faceless to war.

but I cried so hard, and I still think why, but JKR did an exdellant job of showing that war and battles is nothing glorious liek lots of books/movies portray.

I love your picutre, it made me all snuffley
