Title of work: Special Delivery
Author/Artist/Creator: zephre
Medium: art
Featured character of color: Aurora Sinistra
Pairing, if any: Aurora/Minerva
Rating: G
Summary: Sometimes their WATA (Witches' Air Transport Auxiliary) courier routes overlapped, and they shared the adventure, flying over the English countryside with Top Secret documents in sealed satchels on their broomsticks. When they separated, Aurora always blew Minerva a kiss.

Why you are reccing this: First off, because this was the first fanwork I ever saw where Aurora was depicted as a person of color; although in the movies she is portrayed by a black actress (unfortunately unnamed, as far as I can find), it never really sank in with me. Anyway, that's what made this picture stick in my head, but beyond that, this is one of those fanworks that completely draw you into another time and place. Just this one simple scene evokes so much more, from the historical situation to the personalities and relationship between the characters.

~~ Please remember to leave a comment for the artist on the original post if you enjoyed this fanwork. ~~
