My design for Peter aka Wormtail is done, this is my recent style for him. Perhaps much people aren't happy because I draw him, lol.

Before you're gonna kill me, let me explain why I like Peter.
In a writer mood, he's a good character, his personality and the way he surprised us with his true side, to me it became really good. I know that most of fandom hates Peter and I don't blame them, he killed my favorite character of HP (my beloved James Potter, so I have more reasons to hate him, right?). One of the things that I see is that Peter is like a real person, he's not the kick 4ss, not intelligent, not strong... he's a coward! And for some reason, most of the people don't like -real- characters, they like the ones who always have that high ideal that all we dreamed to be. So, for that reason, I like Peter, but not for what he did. Ok? So, don't flame me... tehee.

I feel sorry for him. I mean, when Sirius said he should be secret keeper, he had no idea what Peter was and thought of him as loyal and believed him to be their friend. But he chose Peter because he thought he was so weak and worthless that Voldemort would never think to go after him. That's a really horrible thing to think about someone who is meant to be your friend.

To me, I think the friendship started out good, they were untied by trying to help remus by becoming Animagi and being marauders. But as the years went on, James and Sirius got a bit too arrogant, they were bullies and thought themselves just a bit too clever. Peter started to become more of a groupie or fanboy than an actual friend and they didn't treat him so well. James did grow up but I think the damage was done and by th time he'd grown up, he was starting to focus more on Lily. Peter really should have been allowed to drift away form them but I think James if the type who would never allow that even if it would have been for the better. 

Obviously, it was Peter's choice to go dark but I still think they shouldn't have treated him the way they did when they truly believed he was on their side.

I love it because I like to see pictures of him where he's normallooking and not ... "ugly" as some people can do him into. Because he was one of the guys before he turned to the Death Eaters. I agree with you it's an interesting side of him when he suddenly shows his true(is it?) side.
After all, I do recognizes the younger me sometimes when he gets "bullied" by his friends but doesn't dare to speak up. How big is the possibility that I would also turn to the other side?
Maybe people doesn't like him because some people recognizes themselves in him and don't want to know that they could have done the same thing...

Ohmy, I'm rambling! :blush: I just wanted to say that I like you making him into one of the guys (because noone suspected him before it happened) and he's certainly cute~! :heart:

To me Peter was a good person (he managed to enter Gryffindor) that was seduced by power persons (not power, because he don't like it) so he became corrupted. It's very sad, he was not a hero before and was not a antihero after, just a silly shadow with no redemption...

Awesome Picture! Wormtail is an Awesome character! And probably one of my favorites! (But Snape is my first Favorite!) Wormtail is probably one of my favorites because he is pretty funny in his own way! Especially since Timothy Spall plays Wormtail! Timothy Spall is always making me and my younger brother laugh! And my brother does an Amazing impression of Wormtail! But anyway! Again Great job!
