Ooh, those are lovely. I particularly like the design of the victory medal ribbon.

Thank you.

I was pleased with the result also.

Cute! Very much to the point and well thought out.

I particularly liked the one for Snape!

Thank you.

And I can't imagine that, if HJP is so determined in the Epilogue to see justice done to SS's name, he'd not have insisted on these honours.

I am always amazed at the depth of your idea for the Wizarding world. You bring things to life and this is excellent. It never occurred to me that there might be proper medals and ribbons.

Excellent work!

Thank you very much indeed.

If there's a government and it awards honours and awards such as the Order of Merlin, it wd seem to follow. But, there, JKR can't think of everything, and had she done, can't show everything in the tales.

That's what WE are for.

Delightful. Since you are doing this thing, my fics The First Nymphadora and A crime to outlive him both mention that the MInister wears a ring and a badge of office. I know that this is not canon, but since you seem to have a gift for this sort of thing, could I prevail on you to design them for me? Nothing I came up with looks appropriate.

Serpently.

I'll let you know when I've an idea or two.

Sly, devilish sly....

Very nice - especially the Snape ribbons (I'm glad he got his wretched OM after all!); and I like the 'wilderness operations against Death Eaters' - it has a good ring to it.

Thanks.

And no one cared to put details of Horcrux-hunting and Potterwatch in the citations, wherefore 'wilderness operations'....

Beautiful, creative and thoroughly well-thought out.

Thank you, m'dear.

Although that choice of adjectives rather describes you than my post.

Re: Thank you, m'dear.

Charmer.

excellent


I adore these, especially the Boudicca metal.
They are all very visually appealing and maybe you will be able to use them in an RPG or something???

Thanks.

Perhaps I shall - I'd not thought of that.
