Sectumsempra

Thats a very interesting chapter for me, and I am not ready to understand it completely….

- I believe Snape already had the idea that Harry is in possession of his old book, when he heard him praised for his abilities in Potions by Slughorn - he is sure of it when Harry used the Sectumsempra, what Snape invented and wrote down in his own book

“Apparently I underestimated you, Potter” he said quietly “Who would have thought you knew such Dark Magic? Who taught you that spell?” 

Snape exactly knows this…..but remains in cover. He knows Harry is lying to him about that book.

When he asks Harry to bring all his school books, he is looking at the Potions book intentionally in the end….. He knows.

I believe the detentions Harry is having with Snape following that episode are pretty kind. 

It was not Harrys intention to hurt Draco that bad and he is the Chosen One and because of that there is no way to expel him……..

Snape is indeed furious he used that spell of his own, but I believe much more because of Harry endangered Dracos life and also Snapes life with that unbreakable vow on him. He tries to protect Draco all the time with all his might and then there is Harry messing up everything even more. 

I believe those detentions are not only to punish Harry but also to have Harry out of the way those hours without the risk having him  follow Draco those times on his heels…..

Snape put his greasy disgusting hands on Harry, shook him and threw him to the floor, then threw glass jars at his head (OotP, post SWM). He also once hexed him so hard Harry saw "blinding white light" (HBP post Dumbeldore's death) so miss me with that "Snape is not abusive" apologia bullshit. I don't care what excuses you'll make for him, Harry was a child in every one of those scenes, Snape is a literal child abuser as much as the Dursleys are.

Have you forgotten the circumstances?! The first time Harry had looked into Snape’s most private memories without permission. No wonder he was pissed enough to push Harry over. The second time Snape had literally just killed his only friend. Harry was repeatedly attempting to use unforgivable curses on Snape but Snape was trying to remain calm and even stopped one of the Death Eaters from using crucio on Harry. But when Harry called Snape a coward, he just lost it. All of his rage came out and he hexed Harry to prevent him from following them. The emotions Snape must’ve been feeling are unimaginable to us.

How can you say Snape’s actions are as bad as the Dursley’s? People who starved, hit and locked Harry in a cupboard? Not to mention constantly telling him that his life wasn’t worth shit.

James Potter:
- Was a bully
- Jinxed people when he was bored and laughed at it
- Was totally okay with Remus being a werewolf
- Became an unregistered animagus so that his werewolf friend wouldn’t have to suffer through the full moon alone
- Realized within a few years what a douche he was to people
- Changed for the better
- Loved his wife and his son with all his heart and wanted only what was best for them
- Joined the Order of the Phoenix as soon as he left Hogwarts
- Faced Lord Voldemort without a wand, in hope of buying Lily and Harry time, knowing that he stood no chance of surviving

Severus Snape:
- Thought muggle-borns were inferior
- Called his only friend “mudblood”
- Became a Death Eater
- Told Voldemort about the prophecy, bc he was 100% okay with killing an infant
- When he got to know that it was Lily’s son, he asked Voldemort to spare HER, not caring how she would feel to have her son and husband killed
- Bullied Harry simply because he was James’ son
- Bullied Neville until he became the poor boy’s WORST FEAR (that same poor boy who witnessed his parents get tortured to insanity by Bellatrix, yet SNAPE was his worst fear.)
- Shamed Hermione for her teeth until she cried. And then she permanently changed them.
- Threatened to kill Trevor when Neville failed to do a potion
- Used his position of power as a teacher to make students’ lives miserable
- Told everyone Lupin was a werewolf, and intended to get him fired - Knew that Sirius didn’t tell Voldemort the Potters’ location (I could explain how but I can’t bother now) but still wanted him to get a dementor’s kiss bc of what happened when they were 16 - Helped Harry in the end

But sure, go ahead and tell me Snape was a better person than James.

Daily reminder that Severus Snape is one of my favorite characters and I’m completely unapologetic about how much I love him.

first Potions lesson

“Potter! What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?”

Maybe Snapes words are not  intended to disgrace Harry. If you try - and really want-  to understand Snape you have to read between lines. 

Harry is pretty looking like his father James ( somebody Snape hated for good reasons, as we know) . Have you ever considered the thought Snape was only checking if Harry is also James double inside? That action of Snape was not made for Harry to understand it. But for Snape to learn more about Harry. Somebody he promised to protect and risk his life for him.

Just saying…..

  • what she says: I'm fine.
  • what she means: Snape killing Dumbledore was such a beautiful act of strength and bravery and showed how much he was willing to sacrifice and after so long he still felt guilty for his past actions as a death eater and he knew that the only way to make it right was to protect Draco's innocence and fight for the good of wizard-kind even if it meant he would probably die and never be redeemed and given how tumblr treats him is probably indicative of how the wizarding world would have so in the end his only positive legacy is having a cool little badass Slytherin namesake named Albus Severus Potter

Spinners end….one of the very few occasions JKR allows us to see Severus not only out of Harrys biased sight. Not just as the greasy git and rude Potions Professor. One of my favorite parts of all 8 movies and 7 books. Have a closer look how he is described there….in the book. 

But once again, Alan Rickman as Severus shows us that huge difference in his inimitable manner.

Jily stans/Snape haters: James’s Patronus was a stag and Lily’s was a doe, that means they’re soulmates and it’s just the most beautiful thing evar!!1!!111 Snape’s patronus means he was a creepy gross stalker friendzone icky guy who just wanted to bone Lily.

Me, pointing to Harry’s Stag Patronus and Snape’s doe with neon flashing signs. The dawning realization of horror in the Jily stans eyes fills me with determination. I whoosh away in a billow of black robes.

Another skill of our Potions-Master Professor Severus Snape. One pretty often totally missed out to appreciate his good deeds: Snape is also an accomplished healer. As well with his wand skills and in brewing Potions with healing powers.

- In CoS it seems quite clear its him brewing the Mandrake Restorative Draught for the victims (Filchs cat, Colin,Hermione) of the basilisk attacks. Obviously not that idiot Lockhart……

- In PoA he brews the very complex Wolfsbane Potion for Remus (for somebody he dislikes…..just saying..)

- Before the school starts at HBP he is able to stop a very dangerous curse on that ring with a wand spell and a Potion to stop that extraordinary powerful curse (invented by the dark lord) for a while to help Dumbledore stay alive longer

- He knows how to handle and understand the curse on that necklace from Borgin and Burkes. Obviously he stops the curse on Katie Bell to spread further till the moment she is brought to the hospital for complete cure.

- He heals Dracos deep wounds caused by his own invented spell Sectumsempra, unfortunately used by Harry without knowing of its bad effects.

The man with all skills. And always there when needed 

(only sometimes, when not…….    ;-)    )
