Summary: "We have to consummate the bond to bring it to its fullest magical fruition,' Snape said at Harry's ear. "I promise I will make this as tolerable as possible for both of us."
Artist's Notes: I really struggled with this assignment - how do I portray forced bonding without resulting to just an image of a ceremony? (And what scenario brought them here? Ministry machinations? Pressure by Dumbledore? Or a desire to help Harry against Voldemort via a bond with a strong wizard? My personal favorite!) With a love of tension and transitional moments, I came up with this image. I have to imagine it all ended up okay for both sides (alright, far more than just "okay" because like Rakina, that's how I like the story to go too.) ;-)
