You're Orange by MioneBookworm You're Orange by MioneBookworm
"Do you always recite poetry when you drink?"

"Do you always... Hey..."

"Hey what?"

"You're orange."

"What?"

"Orange."

James arched one eyebrow, stepping subtly forward and cocking his head to one side. "What are you talking about, Snaps?"

Lily nodded towards the porch light. "Orange. You look orange." She giggled again, and James snorted.

"You're toasted, Snaps."

"Well so are you! I bet you couldn't even... couldn't even..."

"Couldn't even what?"

"I dunno! Do something really simple that only sober people could do! Snap with both fingers!"

James raised both hands to eye level and began to snap, causing Lily to laugh. "You're ridiculous," she told him. "Stop it."

"No," teased James. "You wanted me to snap, and I'm snapping."

"Shhhh," hushed Lily, glancing towards the upstairs window where her mother slept. "James, stop it!" But she wasn't really angry.

"Nope. I am snapping, Snaps."

"Stop it!"

"Nuh-uh..."

Lily grabbed both of his hands with her considerably smaller ones, trying to hold them down, to little success until James relaxed his arms. The victorious Lily smirked up at her defeated adversary, only to realize that she now stood quite close to him. The toes of her shoes brushed the rubber tips of his trainers, and she still held his warm hands in hers. The space between their noses was primarily due only to the height difference; James stared down at her, and she stared back, the smile not quite faded from her lips...

Her lips, which were, incidentally, dangerously near to his.



So um...this was supposed to be a cute sketch and it got out of hand during the colouring phase. I had been asked to draw this one before, too, and here it is, finally! One of the best scenes of TLAT! Can't wait for the next update. If you haven't read it already, [link]

The story belongs to the excellent jewels5!

oh my goodness this is one of my favorite stories ever, and I've read alot of fanfiction haha. This is one of the most well-written and in character (well, from what we know about them) stories I've read though, and I'm dying waiting for the next update!!
Do you have any more TLAT fanart? I think I'll go creep around for some now haha :iconsneakawayplz: :XD:
Great job though! This is beautiful (and one of my favorite scenes, as well :D)

Thank you! I think it's extraordinarily well written and in-character, too. I specially enjoy Sirius, Remus and Peter's portrayal :aww:

I know, me too! :aww: Sirius is definitely one of my favorite characters, if not my absolute favorite. And Remus too! He's just so adorable, exactly how I would have imagined him to be :love: I'm still not really feeling Peter all that much though :/
Ooh yay! Oh actually I had sometime seen the one with all the girls already because I had already faved it haha. Both of them are great too! :D

It's an abbreviation for 'The Life and Times', the title of the fiction where this scene is from.

This is very pretty, I love how even with the orange hue you can still make out all the colors. The story was lovely as well.
