If You Have Enough Nerve - HP7 by The-Starhorse If You Have Enough Nerve - HP7 by The-Starhorse
EDIT: The fanfic version of the panel (which I promise you includes better writing than the quality of this art) can be found here: [link] If you love Fred, you won't be sorry you read it! :)

***

According to Ginny, the thing about growing up with Fred and George is that you start to think that anything is possible if you have enough nerve. I just don't think George would take Fred's 'death' lying down, not with a hundred magical ways of getting him back.

So...this is one possibility. Fred uses a time-turner to back to the time of the battle, portkeys in to the exact location under cover of cloak, creates a diversion in which everyone thinks they see Fred die, transifgures a corpse to look like Fred, grabs his brother, and portkeys back out again while everyone is still dazed. Once to safety, they either take the time turner back forward, or just pass the time in hiding until they catch up with the ';present'. Ah time travel...the literary ace in the hole.

Yeesh, I don't think I've rambled on this long about anything I've thrown up here. YES, I know that some panels are pretty wank, but I drew these at work, and didn't have enough time for a proper job of it. (And I think this is the first time that coloring has actually improved a line drawing. I usually wank that up good.)

F&G FOREVAH.

Oh! Why couldn't that have really happened? I wish that Fred never died! Why did he have to die?

Don't want to be a killjoy but Rowling dealt with the time travel thing by having all the time-turner destroyed in the department of mysteries battle. I don't know how they were made but I think that it must be excruciatingly difficult and I doubt that the Shacklebolt governement would risk recreating them for fear of some dark wizards slealing one.

And wasn't it said or heavily implied that time-turner can only turn back like a day or two in time? Fred is dead, Lupin is dead, Tonks is dead, Colin is dead, and not a single thing can be done about it.

And it's not like I wasn't sad when it happened, I just think that except in some sort of AU form, these characters should just be accepted as dead. Any last-second rescue would just cheapen the impact of these scenes.

Although my comment only stand for the fanfic you based yourself on, because you're art is really great, and I really like your color panels and characters designs.

Oh, and by the way, have you read the little quartet of Transformers/Potter fanfics by Kenya Starflight? If not, I would recommend them hugely. I'd post a link, but my computer skills are near zilch and I don't know how. =D

Oh my gosh, I read it and it was absolutely fantastic! You captured all of JKR's characters perfectly. And I just have to say your idea was absolutely brilliant and made me really happy and almost made me cry. I wish that I had come up with that. You do know that JKR went between killing a twin and Arthur? So she did want a Weasley to die. Honestly I think she made a roulette of characters she thought should die or something and then picked Remus and Tonks, Fred, Colin Creevey, and otheres and then came up with stuff to set them up for death.

Personally i always pictured fred coming back as a ghost and messing around like (0r rather worse than) peeves. I just can't see him dying without coming back for at least some fun...

But this idea is better :D

You've got guts.

*Glomps Comic thing* Totally happened.

I like to think that Percy died. What was the point of bringing him back, if he wasn't going to die???

I dislike Percy for being a stooge for most of his life.
