Title: Portrait of Lavender
Artist: nearlyconscious
Characters/Pairing: Lavender Brown
Rating: G
Contains: No warnings.
Artist's Notes: As I've stated here before, I've chosen to always draw Lavender as black ever since I discovered the actress chosen to play her in the movies was black until she actually got a line.

Title: Lotus
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] imera
Characters/Pairing: Padma
Rating: G
Artist's Notes: Here is my Padma, her name meaning lotus, which is what I gave her. I don't know which of the Patil twins are my favourite, as I don't fully know their canon personalities, but I love it that there is one set of twins who are not placed in the same house.
This piece is of her being dressed in traditional colourful Indian dress, which I've always thought was beautiful.

A Lotus for Severus by kittyperry (M, 39K)
Featured character: Padma
Summary: Do not rule out the power of love, for there is great love in your life. A maiden as beautiful as a lotus bloom, a maiden as fragrant as an exotic perfume is in your future. Your love is a flower, waiting to be embraced at right time.
[livejournal.com profile] claudilla1’s rec: the author delves into Indian pure blood society, so very interesting and spot on as she is Sri Lankan-British.


P.S. Only three more days left in our Prompts of Color Event!

Summary: Mrs. Zabini. Seven young and healthy men have died with her ring on their fingers; and still men fall in love or in lust with her. Listen as she tells her secrets to Albus Dumbledore...
[livejournal.com profile] swissmarg’s rec: A concise, chilling, yet somehow entirely understandable tale of Mrs. Zabini’s multiple marriages.


P.S. Don't forget about our Prompts of Color Event, running until 31 October!

Family Ties by Anyanka_Jenkins (Rated 15, 36K)
Featured character: Dean
Summary: This is my first fanfic, based on an original idea of JK Rowling's. When she posted that "I don't think his history will ever make it into the books." I decided I'd have a go at telling the story myself. This fic is set alongside Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, this year Harry's fellow Gryffindor Dean Thomas discovers that everything he knows about his family is wrong...
[livejournal.com profile] swissmarg’s rec: We get to see Dean as a full-fledged character in this. A fantastic, sensitive portrayal with a gripping story to go with it.

Parvati
Icon by swissmarg, feel free to grab and use (but please re-host and credit)

Title of work: You're still gorgeous
Artist: parv89
Medium: art
Featured character of color: Parvati Patil
Pairing, if any: none (could be seen as Parvati/Lavender)
Rating: not rated but SFW
Summary: Parvati Patil, visiting Lavender Brown at the hospital after Fenrir Greyback's attack.
Reccer: [livejournal.com profile] p_for_polkadots
Why you are reccing this: The artwork is beautiful. What I like even more though is the sentiment behind the image. It's a tender moment between two friends. Their intimacy and closeness is so obvious in this kind of tableau. Other visitors would probably stand by the bed or sit in a chair next to it, while tactfully avoiding to look directly at Lavender. But Parvati does none of that. She sits close to Lavender right on the bed, touches her with both hands and looks directly into her face. There is no distance or awkwardness, only the assurance that Lavender is certainly still gorgeous in Parvati's eyes.
