The Engagement by julvett The Engagement by julvett
I hope this isn't too hard to read.

Here's a strip I did about James and Lily getting engaged... I imagine them getting engaged pretty close toward the end of school, but I can't imagine their parents being totally on board with it, especially since James' parents were kinda old and may have had traditional values and whatnot.

Of course, Pottermore could prove this all wrong but... maybe not.

And Sirius of course would hate this also... I believe JKR did confirm this somewhere but I don't have a quote.

And of course Mr. Severus Snape would disapprove but maybe that's for another comic...

edit- about sirius, he's just jealous that james will be spending more time with lily than him. he's worried the marauders are over~

Recent pottermore story notes that the Potter family while being mostly Pureblood often married muggle neighbors and James's greatgrandfather was a huge supporter of muggle(born) rights that actually lead to him being thrown off the Wizengamot (and not being included in the Sacred 28). I'm sure Fleamont Potter was happy to see his son marry. Also I imagine Sirius only being mad because James will be busy being married and not having time for him.

Aaaaand Pottermore revealed that the Potters were pro-muggle for many years, but the art is still great!

Oh my God, is there THAT many people who disapprove?!

Very cute comic ^^

I think that Snape disapprove. Not because he want Lily for himself. 

Because  loving someone don't mean that we want marry this person and have sex with her/him, specially when Snape has never asked something other than friendship from Lily. "I thought that we were friends, best friends" is the most emotional thing that he has say to Lily.

I just think that snape disapproves because, at his eyes, the "bully" don't deserve Lily.

I know, James grew up.  But he has say "Sorry" to Snape for all his pranks? No.

So in Snape's eyes, James don't deserve Lily. It doesn't mean than he want her for himself.

Friendship is also a very strong feeling.

I sort of think they would be okay with it really.
I mean Sirius's family was connected to Voldemort and they still accepted him over for sunday brunch.

I would think James's parents would be okay with it I mean Serious was tooth and nail against the whole pureblood thing and they let him stay and he never talked about it being bad or them trying to convince him otherwise.

How ironic that Harry embodies what his father strived to be (With thousands of girls chasing him) and what his mother was unintentionally (picking up the attentions of their true love, but originally ignoring them)

James' worried face. Rawr. :icondroolingfaceplz:
bearaiin Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Student Digital Artist
And I love-Love-LOVE how James often tries to show Lily that childish and happy side of him and be the optimistic one of the couple, even though he, too, has his worries and fears. Yet he, for Lily's sake, hides those fears to deal with them himself, knowing that when the time comes, Lily will be counting on him and he can't let her down when that time comes.

And also, in this short strip, you can just SEE how they've developed from this half-serious fling or challenger-versus-prey relationship into a strong feeling of love. And I see how the part about him not really caring whether Lily's muggleborn or not has really been there all those years of hopelessly trying to make her fall for him. Until, of course, it wasn't so hopeless anymore.

And I'm reading way too much into this, but I just- ugh. Feels. They hurt so much. :iconcryingplz:

Oh my gosh! this is such sad jily! I had never thought that the potters might have been prejudiced!

Awesome comic but why would Sirius be pissed?
julvett Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012
because he doesn't want james spending more time with lily than him
MJTism Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Ah... I see now, well he needs to realize that not speaking to his fiance is no way to get in his good books.
