The Black Family, coloured by marodorplanen The Black Family, coloured by marodorplanen
I'm FINALLY finished! :phew:
I've been working on this for two months, and I'm so tired of it! T___T

The uncoloured verison is here: [link]

However, this is Sirius's (wonderful XD) family. I love them all (kind of), and I'm rather happy with how this one turned out.

So, from the upper left;

Arcturus (Sirius's grandfather, father of Orion)
Lucretia (daughter of Arcturus, Orion's sister)
Ignatius Prewett (married to Lucretia)
Orion (Sirius's father)
Pollux (Sirius's grandfather, father of Walburga)
Irma (Sirius's grandmother, mother of Walburga)
Cassiopeia (sister of Irma)
Cygnus (Sirius's uncle, brother of Walburga)
Bellatrix
Alphard (Sirius's uncle, brother of Walburga)

And from the lower left:

Melania (Sirius's grandmother, mother of Orion)
Sirius <3
Walburga (Sirius's mother)
Regulus
Andromeda
Druella (married to Cygnus, mother of Sirius's cousins)
Narcissa

I don't own any of them (but you didn't think so, did you?).

And please excuse my mistakes - English is not my native language.

Aww, thanks! :aww:
Yep, I definitely think so too! :) I think there is too few people realising how interesting they really are! ^-^

Anyhow, I am really happy you liked it! :thanks: It's so old now though... I should probably make new one (not that I ever will be able to work up the patience needed XD). ^^

Oh, it did, it did... XD

No, I have not. I might check it out thought. I am always on the lookout for good HP-fanfics. ^^ Besides someone with the username Elvendork Nigellus must be a great author. XD

Thanks for the tip! :thanks:

Yeah....it' s one of my favorite fanfics! It's still a WIP, (the author just took it off hiatus recently.....) but I have read it like 4 times! It's how I got interested with the Black family.....and yup! He or she is!

How did you become fascinated with the Noble and Most Ancient of Black?

Oh, I see. Sounds interesting. ^^

How I started to like the Blacks, huh?
Well it was ages ago, so I am not quite sure. But I sort of instantly became a fan of James while reading the books, and I have always found it very touching how close he and Sirius were. And as I started to work out a backstory for James it just came naturally for me to think of one for Sirius too, I guess. ^^

But when I started to write my Sirius and James-fanfic (about them switching families over the holidays using polyjuice-potion) I sort of HAD to come up with personalities for all of them, and I became rather obsessed with the Blacks. Especially Alphard and Walburga. And Regulus of course. ^-^

Which ones are your favourites? :)

Oh, and sorry for the long reply. ^^;

Ooh, is your fanfic on this site? It sounds interesting to read! I would love to see James' take on the Black family....;)

Well, I like Sirius of course, (he's my favorite character!) and I began to like more of Cassiopeia, Pollux, and Arcturus after reading the aforementioned fanfic! And thenof course, I liked Regulus, Narcissa, and Andromeda just from canon! (Not that big of a Bellatrix fan.....)

ANd that's okay, sometimes it takes a while to say everything you need to say!

Sorry for the late reply! I have been away for a while... ^^;

Unfortunatly it's not. I am sort of just writing it for my own entertainment, and I havn't let anyone read it yet. Besides it's in Swedish. ^-^ But it makes me happy that you think the idea for it sounds okay. :boogie: Haha, well in my story things are not going to well for James in that regard. XD

Well those are really good favourite characters if I might say so. ;) And I do get why you're not in the Bellatrix-fanclub. I can't say I am either. But In a way I suppose she should be intresting and all, what with being in love with Voldemort and all. She should have a multilayerd character I guess, I just can't get pass my dislike for her for killing Sirius. :tears: And Dobby. :(

Oh wow!!! Amazing work hun!! :wow: Yeah, i bet it took months.. its so detailed!! :clap: Really lovely work.. I was always fascinated by the Black family too... actually all the pureblood families (including the Weasley and the Malfoys) are quite interesting. Hope the Encyclopedia will reveal more details about them. :aww:

Aww, thanks! :glomp:

Happy to hear that someone else likes them (most of them arn't in the books at all)! :dance: Since I started to write a fanfic about them they've kind of occupied my mind. XD It really is something about the purebloods isn't it? The way they live and think... :)

Wait a minute, the Encyclopedia? :? Has she finally written one?

She's working on it, amongst other things.. there's no word on when it'll be out, but I assume the next few years? :aww:

Yeah, purebloods can be so clueless, about Muggle ways especially... in good and bad ways. ^^;

I've heard that she was going to make one, but it was maby a year ago, so I figured she had changed her mind. I'm glad that wasn't the case. :)

Yep, that's true. :aww:

And accually I should have included Walburgas cousin Araminta Melifula (I will SO name my children that... not. XD) but I forgot her since she isn't on the Black family tree. Which is too bad because I like her.
Well, however, thanks! :thanks:

Sirius is also my fave! And I'm very interested in his family, even though I can't say I like all of them.
And I soooo LOVE the marauders too! :heart: But I understand why you don't like Peter... not many people does. And I'm not one of them.

And thank you really! :hug:
It did take forever, but it was worth it. :D
