What He'd See in Erised by AgiVega What He'd See in Erised by AgiVega
In an interview after the release of Deathly Hallows, Rowling said that what Dumbledore really saw in the mirror of Erised was himself with his parents and siblings around. I was too lazy to draw his parents, but I drew Ariana and Aberforth (and the goat! :XD:). Oh, and of course, the woollen sock (just one, I was again lazy to draw a pair) that he claimed to see in the Erised in HP and the Philosopher's Stone...
Blimey, I hated doing that mirror frame... that was one heck of a work! I hope it was worth it... :P

This is great! Wow, seeing this visually really brings it home! You did a great job on the mirror. My favourite things about this are how happy Dumbledore's siblings look, and the sock. Awesome!

like how you added the goat as we all know Aberforth loves goats and how in the end all Dumbledore just wanted was the ones he loved back in his life

R.I.P Albus Dumbledore may you find peace in heaven farewell

This is really good, but it was too bad he didn't see Grindelwald because they were lovers in the series

Nice picture. Love how Dumbledore looks like Disney's Merlin, which is how I always pretty much imagined him to look.

AWWWW. How could Harry think that he was not telling him the truth. He did see himself holding a sock but he also saw his brother and sister and Harry did not really need to know that I guess. When I first read DH I was starting to not like Dumbledore but reading it over I fully understood. 6 more days till DH part 1!!!!!! <3

oh, the funniest part about that to me is that when my BFF and i went to see HBP in theaters, we were at the part when Dumbledore is shooting fire at those inferi things, and she leaned over and whispered "Santa Claus!"
we couldn't stop laughing for about five minutes XD

Szia nagyon tetszik a galériád és ez a ké;p szuper:D
Egyébként meg olvastam a fanficceidet és imádom őket!! :D :D Én is írogatok Harry Potter storykat, a lumoson és a merengőn wild rose néven megtalálsz :) (örülnék a véleményednek és persze a tanácsaidnak, hogy érdemes e az írással foglalkoznom) :):)
És ha nem gond, felvennélek a barátok közé is :D
