It’s come to my attention, that earlier this evening Harry Potter was sighted in Hogsmeade. Now, should anyone student or staff attempt to aid Mr. Potter? They will be punished in a manner consistent with the severity of their transcription, further more… Any person found have knowledge of these events who fails to come forward will be treated as equally guilty.
Another… If anyone in here has any knowledge of Mr. Potter’s movements this evening, I invite them to step forward. Now!


Snape is a complicated man. He’s bitter. He’s … spiteful. He’s a bully. All these things are still true of Snape, even at the end of this book. But was he brave? Yes, immensely. […] Was he capable of love? Very definitely. So he’s – he’s a very – he was a flawed human being, like all of us.

“Mr Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people’s business.
Mr Prongs agrees with Mr Moony and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git.
Mr Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a Professor.
Mr Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day, and advises him to wash his hair, the slime-ball.”
