ART: It's taken me so long (Albus Severus/Scorpius, G)  
Title: It's taken me so long
Artist: anemonen
Prompt: #S48 by _melodic_
Pairing(s): Albus/Scorpius
Rating: G
Art Medium: Digital painting
Content/Warnings: None
Summary: Albus has been having feelings for his best friend, Scorpius, for ages, and the end of their last Hogwarts year feels like a time limit to tell him.
Artist's Notes: Dear _melodic_, your prompt would've made such a lovely pining story, but since I'm making art this is more of a "how does it go" piece than anything else. Hope you'll like it still :) Thanks, gracerene for creating this lovely fest for us again!! Title is from Shura - "2Shy".

Awww, MA, how wonderful. Wait did Al wait literally to the last minute just before they were going to leave Hogwarts for the last time with the train? Such a dork. :D But an adorable one. I mean look at him with his rumpled shirt. Glad, Scor had the hots for him too. Love his skin. It looks/they look wonderful. And yay for boys kissing and forgetting everything else (a train ready to leave, take a last proper look at the castle...), because they're in love. Great picture, MA. Thanks for sharing! <333

That's beautiful :) I love the background detail.

This is so beautiful! First off, I LOVE the scenery, the sort of fuzzy/faded backdrop of the Hogwarts express and the greenery of the Hogwarts station. And the lovely, romantic clouds of steam! And the kiss! So lovely. I like that Scorpius is just a little bit taller, and I love the tone of their clothing, it really brings out their coloring. Lovely and sweet!

I love what you did here, dear MA! Love how the boys stand out in so much detail before the somewhat blurry background, which still gives away where they are - Hogwarts station, easily identifiable by the lush nature, the castle and the mountains, and the blue sliver of the lake. Albus and Scorpius look so lost in each other's arms and their kiss, as if they were really forgetting about the world around them. You gave them such a romantic moment, with the steaming locomotive of the Hogwarts Express and the fog rising from the lake. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

Oh, my gosh, that's beautiful. I'm so in love with Scorpius! I adore the prompt and the way you interpreted it. Somehow you manage to put across all the longing and pining that's been happening, in this one gorgeous picture. They look just the right age in their physiques, which I think is hard to get right, and those shirts are just asdfghjksdfghjkl. They're so handsome and perfect together! The steam is so atmospheric and adds to the feel of this amazing moment away from the rest of the world. Really magical, thank you so much for sharing your talent with us <3

This is so lovely ♥

I love that the boys are bolder than the background, and the intensity of the way they're holding each other :)

Oh, this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the setting with the mist and the hills in the background, Scorpius has got those long lean legs that just draw your eyes to them, Al's hair is nice and a bit messy - in short, it's a lovely vignette of the first kiss. :)

This is gorgeous, mystery artist! It's such a beautiful moment, I love that I can see how much they obviously love each other. It's in the way they are holding each other, Al's hand down Scorpius's back and his on Albus's waist, it makes me think they've been waiting for this kiss to happen for months, maybe even years, the pining and want finally translating in this beautiful kiss.

I love their clothing, it gives them such distinct personalities, and the contrast in their hair is just beautiful. I love the Hogwarts Express in the background, with the castle and the mountains in the back, the fog, it adds something magical to this moment. Beautiful. ♥

omgoshhhhhh this is amazinngggg MA!! Beautiful work, so well done, and such a wonderful use of the prompt! I love the steam, and their poses, and everything haha, it looks such a wonderful emotive kiss! Their hands and Scorpius's cheeks are particularly eye catching, the skin tones are so well done and wonderful (and the hands just look divine!)

Oh MA, Oh MA!!! Ahhh this is perfect!!!

What a beautiful painting. Sigh. I adore it and despite their not being 10k words of pining, well honestly you don't even need it. There is just something in that kiss, in that stance that speaks of years of pining that finally brought them together in this one, lovely moment.

I love their hair, ah the contrast between the two is just divine. And yes Scorpius looks gorgeous, just a tiny bit taller than Albus. The background is beautiful, the castle looming not too far away and the Hogwarts express coming to take them away. I can so imagine the backstory here, Albus just being so nervous and literally waiting to the last second to tell Scorpius about his feelings. All the mist and clouds from train really make the piece.

Thank you so much for filling my prompt and sharing this lovely work!!

This is gorgeous. Like someone else said, you've really matched their physique with their age. And I adore the mood you've set so perfectly with the out of focus background. You've got the sense of urgency with the train right there, that desperate push for Albus to do it before it all ends. The beautiful scenery and a peek of the lake and Hogwarts in the distance must've been such a wake-up call that it's truly the last moment to do it. Such great motivation, and such a reminder that although they'll still be friends, they won't see each other every day in the same way anymore.

Aw. Wow, and the kiss itself is amazing. I love their stance and the way they're holding each other. The height difference is perfect, and uggh, the steam is so atmospheric. I almost forgot to mention that. Oh, and I think it's adorable how Scorpius almost appears to be bending at the knees a tiiny bit. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be that way, because it's so slight I might be imagining it. Maybe it's just the way he's standing and/or the way his legs are shaped. But the idea that he'd make himself a little smaller or generally melt a little against Albus is too cute, so I'm sticking with it. :D

This is such beautiful work, MA!! It’s so atmospheric and the colours are exactly Scotland, so fitting.

The kiss is absolutely stunning. They both completely seem to melt into it, Scorpius with slightly bended knees and Albus standing just a tiny bit on tiptoes. Just like their fathers <3 And Albus his buttondown looks so soft, and his hand looks so strong and creeping to just the right places :D

I also love how you made their clothes so detailed, and then the surroundings deliberately vague, so they really jump out even though their colours are almost as sparse as the surroundings. The red of the Hogwarts Express is a really nice contrast with both the steam as the green/ grey/ blue of the landscape, and the steam indeed creates this dreamy atmosphere, together with the vague surroundings, indicating there’s nothing and no-one but them, finally kissing. Really lovely work <3

AHHHH, this is so lovely!! I love the pose, the colors, and the love I can feel from the pair of them <3 Beautiful work!

Ohhh this is so endlessly beautiful in every aspect! I love love the background and how you set the scene and tell the story, and then the KISS. It's just so tender and delicate, with Al leaning into it and his hand on Scorp's hip, while Scorpius possessively holds the small of Al's back. You create such a genuine atmosphere of passion, it's so stunning!!

Beautiful! The scenery is well done, and I love that there's a sense of urgency in the kiss. Seriously, though, so romantic!! <3

Aww, I love this! The atmosphere of the steam and the Express behind them really adds to their kiss. I love the way they're holding each other, and Albus leaning into Scorpius!
