HBP images I'm surprised we haven't seen

There are always plenty of Dracos to go around, and plenty of Snapes, and a reasonable number of Remuses and Harrys. There's a particular scene involving sunlit days that has had a lot of art devoted to it, and a dude with sharp teeth that I wanted to see and really got my wish. These are some images I'm kind of surprised I haven't seen much of, 'cause they're interesting. Not requests. Well, if someone's looking for something to draw, I guess it's worth a shot, but mostly it's just HBP images that struck me as very visual, and I'm surprised to not have seen much of them. I'm just as interested in discussion about why they haven't gotten much visual attention, if anyone has opinions.

Fun from jiminyc

jiminyc was inspired by Summary Executions to come up with this:

But just for the fun of writing it worse, here's a fun exercise: Take any (or all) of your fanfic stories and write intentionally bad summaries for them.

Oh, and EDITING IN. I asked this at the Quill, but I'll ask here, too.

Breakthrough!

Yes! I got my structure for the Shifts sequel! It came to me on the bus home.

I'm going to invert the Shifts structure... instead of hearing from Remus except on full moons, I'm going to have it Tonks's POV, and hear from Remus only around full moons. I mean, I realized that more or less, the interesting stuff that happens to Remus happens on or around the transformations, and it just clicked.

I like when that happens. It's a cool feeling when the lightbulb just goes on.

After much interior hemming and hawing, I'm going to stick with Remus calling her Dora, because that's embedded in this ficverse, even though he does call her "Tonks" twice in HBP. I'll think of some workaround for that.
