Lounge Room Cricket by RohanElf Lounge Room Cricket by RohanElf
first off, no I did not get this idea from Juno. My friends and I used to do this stuff back when I was younger for shits and giggles.

A painting for :iconsuanin:'s HP Contest ([link]) which I TOTALLY thought the deadline of was TODAY and I only found out about the contest like 2 days ago. So I pulled this out of my arse in a day. Im a little annoyed because I think it could and would have been much better if I wasnt an idiot and read things properly. Oh well.


The Marauders in their 7th year. After pulling a prank on Dumbledore where they move his ENTIRE Office outside onto the Hogwarts lawn (desk paper, Fawks, everything) only to wake up to find Dumbledore happily working on his desk outside not fussed at all, they decided to move some of the chairs etc from the Gryffindor Common Room out to their tree for comfort and amusement.

On the occasions when the boys decide to play cricket the chairs get moved out of the way, the rug is used to represent the crease, and the coffee table and the lamp are used as stumps.

I would say this is late one afternoon after a looong day of school :) hence the greying colour scheme


Thankyou so much in advance for your comments, I read every single one of them and appreciate them all even if I dont get a chance to reply to them!

Hahaha, I like the girl that practically climbing up the tree!
That would probably be me, but I'd be going for Remus, she's probably going for James.

I really love the attention to details, here. All of the boys (and Lily, Cassy and Marlene, too, of course) look fabulous, and the kid in the back being attacked by the giant squid is hillarious.
p.s. I now have the sudden terrible urge to drag the entire contents of my living room out into the yard.

Hahaha, you are as crazy as those adorable boys! I love it! It’s hilarious! What on earth is James doing, covering Remus’ eyes? And I can totally imagine Dumbledore carrying on as usual out on the lawn, you should totally draw that too! Aww, this is amazing. Haha, and oh the trouble they’d get into for this… McGonagall would go nuts I imagine.

I do have a sketch somewhere form a few years ago of the Dumbledore prank... I should find it.

Do you think you could lend me that portion of your brain for a while :p? Amazing picture, I adore it! And I think you may have succeeded in waking up my muse, so thank you :D!

Hahaha I dunno I guess my brain works like that, I used to pull a few pranks when I was at school and usually my thoughts are if you can do magic you could do some REALLY hilarious pranks.

Im glad your muses are back!!!!

Thay're not supposed to be. If you can put drying charms on everything etc then if you were to move a living room set outside thats what you would do ...well thats what I would do :)

No, the chairs in the common room are often described as dilapidated. One can only imagine the shape that they would be in after being taken outside. ^^
