They could be a perfect couple

So I know why Tom became an evil lord. Because Minerva didn't want to be with him! That's all her faul :(

Nice drawing. I used to like the idea that she was in love with him and he just saw her as a means to an end. And that she had the suspicion that he was the Heir of Slytherin.

I think they could have been a couple once or at least friends once. But that was before he showed her his true colors. After that I picture her standing against him and all he stood for.

sort of makes me wonder if this was the affair with the Muggle J.K Rowling wrote for Minerva but never saw as relevant....

Nice! For those of you who don't know, this is Minerva McGonagal and Tom Riddle. An...interesting couple. ;-)

Mother of God! She's beautiful! The only thing I would change is that Tom shouldn't smile. :)

Curse Pottermore.

I still ship them even though Tom would have been posessive of Minerva (as a husband)

I kind of love it, even though it's a couple I've never seen nor heard of before until now :3
alex-idioteque Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2011
I ship these guys ;)
TheTrueDarkness Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011
it's funny to me that by the time of deathly hallows they are of the same age but barely seem to notice each other XD
PRFury Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

and it would explain why she's so adamant about joining in the battle against him ;)

Minerva? Minerva? Wait....that Minerva? Mc Gonogal?
Fiarrella Featured By Owner May 22, 2011
One Word: Epic.
krizzy630 Featured By Owner May 20, 2011

sexytoaster Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2011
They sure did. :)

I used to like this ship as a teenager. I kinda thought Minerva would be attracted to Tom Riddle until she sees him for who he really is in the Chamber of Secrets incident.
Reneslec Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2011
OMG!!! WOW!!! I love it xDD

Now this is awesome. I was always interested in these two. You have made such a lovely piece, though. You have such a way with details, and I love the texture and the shading. The soft colors and darker tone makes it look like some old drawn photo in a sense, which I like too. :D
misschampagne Featured By Owner May 11, 2010
This is wonderful. I love it(:
Lautia Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2010
lol minerva with a tattoo!!
Ivy-Green Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2010
O_O Minerva and Tom?!?! Didn't think of that one. But this is beautiful! All your art is really! Fantastic work!! :D
Allyrah Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Oh wow, this is such a strange ship for me, but the image looks so great! I really love Tom, I think you captured him so well. And Minerva's expression, it's like she's as strict as she is when she's a teacher, so you captured her very well too. I like it
Greti30 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2009
What an idea!
And it can be.. i think MUST be true!
That would be an explanation of Minerva's rigidity! :P
rebel-brat Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
whoa. this is awesome!
i love how Riddle's expression is so relaxed, and even though McGonagall's got her skirt all bunched up she still looks prissy. cool. (:

Ohhh finally someone else who sees this pairing! :heart:
Luanna255 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2009
Believe it or not, this picture is actually how I discovered the Tom/Minerva ship! I was looking through your art (which is GORGEOUS) after seeing the Harry/Ginny piece in this Celtic series (such an original idea, BTW... how did you think of it?) and, like a lot of other people here, I thought "Voldemort and Professor McGonagall? That's an odd idea..."
So I went and did some research, read some fanfic, etc. and now I'm actually quite a fan! I usually hate Voldemort ships in general, because his inability to love is such an essential part of who he is, but I can see that he could've been in love - to the degree that he was ever able to - when he was younger and not so evil yet. It's just more plausible than a lot of non-canon ships... and so I like it. And I wouldn't have discovered it if not for your gorgeous picture!
Now, on to the picture itself (sorry if I bored you to death, there); I love everything about it. I love how Minerva already has a strict look to her features, even though she's young and pretty. This is how I picture a young Professor McGonagall would look, and you captured it perfectly.
I love how his eyes are gleaming with just a hint of red.
I love the possessive way his hand is curled around her neck - because he strikes me as the type who, if he ever WAS in a relationship, would have been extremely possessive.
I love the way the Celtic knots look sort of like snakes! I don't know if that's on purpose, since a lot of Celtic knots just look like that, but it's certainly appropriate.
Her snake tattoo is just funny. And WOW, that robe is hiked way up.
Oh, and I love your drawing style of course! Everything is so perfect and detailed... it's amazing! Do you draw for a living, or is it just a hobby? Because you're good enough to be a professional!
Um, that's all. Sorry this is such a long review. Although, if it was me, I would love a long review, but not everyone IS me. So sorry if you feel like this wasted your time.
