Fair warning my sparkly besties there are SPOILERS ahead. If you move forward, move with extreme caution. I will not warn you again.
This is your last chance.
I’m warning you.
The secrets will be revealed.
Snape kills Harry Potter.
*giggles erupt* *falls on the floor* *giggles* *picks self up halfway to the couch* *giggles more*
That’s what you get for not reading the book. No. I won’t apologize.
But seriously there are still potential SPOILERS ahead.
Enough messing around. Moving forward I should clarify something (I’m still not apologizing you should have read the book). If you read the books BEFORE the movies the beginning will seem shaky. Meaning most of you probably HATED Snape. I however watched the first movie and when I saw Alan Rickman it was all over for me (he's awesome).
He’s got a badass reputation. He favors Slytherin – especially Malfoy. He’s part of the Dark Lord’s team (or so one thinks), and hates EVERYTHING related to Harry Potter (unless we’re referring to his mother).
Why is he misunderstood then?
Because he’s badass. Every girl wants the bad boy and Snape fits the bill. He fell in love with the wrong girl. She didn’t love him. It’s a hard pill to swallow when your arch nemsis walks away with your girl and then produces a child all before they get themselves blown up. Not exactly the coolest. ESPECIALLY when you’re told that you have to PROTECT the boy from harm.
If I were Snape I would have asked “Is this a joke? Am I getting Punk’d?”
But no. He didn’t. Instead he watched Harry Potter (aka James) roam through the halls and protected him ONLY when ABSOLUTELY necessary.
Of course it gets a little fuzzy when Dumbledore dies (you should have watched PT 1 and you would have known already. Blame yourself). He turns to the dark side (sort of… I think I would have too to save myself – I could be a coward… I don’t know) but in the end you’ll find that he really was just misunderstood.
His life story says it all.
Boy starts off misunderstood. Falls in love. Gets denied. Goes on misunderstood. Gets a job at place where he’s misunderstood. Never gets the position he wants. Goes throughout life misunderstood. Has to teach the boy he hates. Still misunderstood. Has to kill someone he doesn’t want to. Ends up misunderstood.
Oh and then Harry names a kid after him.
See… Misunderstood. So what’s your take?
For all my other Snape lovers out there:
