At some point, I’m sure Hogwarts had an issue with the Gryffindor hourglass randomly going down. It turned out Snape had started talking in his sleep and Dumbledore had to do some fancy magic to fix it.

The man is a teacher. It’s literally his job to help students learn about potions. If they’re having trouble, he’s supposed to help them figure it out. He is supposed to TEACH them, and if they don’t understand, he’s supposed to help them.
Instead, he chooses to make fun of and ridicule students like Neville, who don’t understand his instructions. Instead of helping students who have trouble, he mocks and bullies them. Instead of doing his job, he exacts petty revenge on his school rival by bullying his son- and then bullies Neville for having trouble in his class.
I’ve always been able to see both sides of this snape argument, and I’ve never really picked a side, but the more I think about it the faster that indifference changes to hatred.
one of my absolute favourite scenes in the harry potter films is so subtle. and yet, when you notice it, it blows you the hell away
it’s almost nearing the end of gof when harry brings cedrics body back to hogwarts
as everyone begins realising that something’s not quite right, and dumbledore comes racing down to harrys side, watch severus very carefully- he’s in the top right next to minerva. when dumbledore’s going to harry, you can just see severus’ hands unfolding before he touches minervas arm to alert her then runs down to see what’s happening
then when fudge says ‘a boy’s just been killed’, watch severus’ face, before he goes over and crouches down, touching dumbledores back, then when he realises it’s just cedric, he backs off…
bonus: i found this in a yt comment- somebody said that snape gives cedric his cloak, because 1. when amos comes down, he pushes something off of cedrics body then as the camera pans down, there’s something black on his body and 2. severus isn’t wearing his cloak when he comes to rescue harry with dd and minerva. i’m not sure if this is true or was just a minor screw up with wardrobe but if it is true, then my god…….that’s really impressive
this Never gets talked about, and it’s suuuuch a huge shame, because it honestly speaks volumes to snapes character
