Illustrated scenes from Harry Potter: The Marauders' Generation

It's been years since Harry Potter's story came to a close and J.K. Rowling's first non-Potterverse novel comes out next week. But perhaps if she decides to someday return to the world of Hogwarts, she could be persuaded to expand the story of Harry's parents, James and Lily, and James' fellow shapeshifting Marauders.

Viktoria Ridzel, a.k.a. viria13, draws some extremely lovely Harry Potter fanart (as well as Avatar: The Last Airbender and Doctor Who art), but she has a particular interest in creating scenes with the Marauders: James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew. She does a nice job developing the tone and personalities Rowling set up in the book, including an overeager Wormtail. She's also charted out concept designs for James and Lily's other classmates (plus Molly and Arthur, who were at Hogwarts at a different time). She even invents a love interest for Sirius: Roxanne Malfoy, older sister to Lucius. Apparently, she thought Sirius wasn't getting enough makeouts.

So what say you, Ms. Rowling? Might this inspire a few tales of the Marauders?
