albus and snape

Y'all up here acting like Snape spent his entire life in Danger because of his spywork? No. He joined the Death Eaters willingly after Hogwarts and only worked as a Spy for about 9 months (probably shorter) during the 1st war and then 3 years during the 2nd war. He had a nice, comfortable life inbetween under Dumbledore’s protection at Hogwarts. He was the only one to blame for any discomfort and unhappiness he experienced in those almost 14 years of safety. He was bitter and decided take it out on the rest of the world.

You know who did brave a horrible life full of loneliness, poverty, negligence and cruelty at the hands of those who wrongly feared and marginalized him? Remus Lupin. Who by the way also worked as a Spy for Dumbledore by living among werewolves (including the man who bit him) who supported Voldemort. Note, he LIVED among these werewolves. Always in danger of being torn apart and murdered on the spot, whereas most of Snape’s spylife involved him sulking around Hogwarts tormenting kids… Safe. And Remus lost EVERYTHING…but he smiled. Always smiled. Always put others first and never took anything for granted. It took tremendous amounts of bravery for Remus to just go about everyday life.

But no Snape’s the bravest of them all. I’m not bitter.

harry: It’s cute how I used to think this “barely-holding-it-together” feeling was temporary.

ron: Sometimes I think “I need to think before I speak” and then other times I think “I shouldn’t leave the house or interact with people ever.”

hermione: I woke up just before winning the argument in my dream. Fuck this day.

draco: For someone with such an intense need to be liked you’d think I would have figured out how to be less of an asshole.

neville: My daily objective is less about goal achievement and more about regret management.

ginny: “You’re the only person in the world I don’t hate right now" is as close as I get to saying “I love you”

luna: When *I* played Barbie, I stripped her naked and melted her with matches.

voldemort: My life would be so much easier if it wasn’t for that thing…God, what is that thing called…other people.

dumbledore: If I die unexpectedly can everyone just do the right thing and pretend I was a way better person than I am?

snape: Can I petition to make holding grudges an Olympic event? Cause I’ve been in training my whole life.

Fears of Hogwarts houses

Hufflepuff:
Being alone. Letting people down and not being able to help when you feel like you need to.

Gryffindor:
Not being able to live up to the expectations that people have of you.

Ravenclaw:
Not suceed in things at work, school or home and not being listened to.

Slytherin:
Letting people in, cause you think they will reject you or see you as weak.

What if Atlantis is just a Greek wizarding school.

Muggles originally knew of the island in Ancient Greek times, but then as new spells and magic was created, muggles thought it sank/mysteriously disappeared, after anti muggle spells were cast on the island to hide the school.

Just like Slughorn, Albus Dumbledore collects people. Only, instead of focusing on those with influence, he looks to the outcasts.

The expelled half-giant.
The young werewolf.
The repentant Death Eater.

He protects them and gives them a second chance. All he asks in return is their loyalty.

And, if on occasion he requests that they undertake a certain task, invoking their debt of gratitude - well, that is no more than he is owed.

He once thought to add a certain disowned Black to his collection, but quickly realised his mistake.

Sirius is not an outcast, but a rebel. He knowingly chose his path, and chooses what price he is willing to pay for it. He refuses to be used.

So Albus Dumbledore abandons him.

Shit Slytherins Say: #127
  • Ravenclaw: "You have to kiss the cutest person in the room."
  • Slytherin: "Gryffindor?"
  • Gryffindor: **blushing** "Yes?"
  • Slytherin: "Move aside, I need to get to the mirror."
  • McGonagall: So. Who broke the tea pot? I'm not mad, I just wanna know.
  • Hagrid: I did. I broke it.
  • McGonagall: No. No you didn't. Albus?
  • Dumbledore: Don't look at me. Look at Severus.
  • Snape: What?! I didn't break it.
  • Dumbledore: Oh that's weird. How'd you even know it was broken?
  • Severus: Because it's sitting right in front of us and it's broken.
  • Dumbledore: Suspicious.
  • Snape: No it's not!
  • Sprout: If it matters, probably not, but Horace was the last one to use it.
  • Slughorn: Liar! I don't even drink that crap!
  • Sprout: Oh really? Then what were you doing by the tea cart earlier?
  • Slughorn: I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that Pomona!
  • Hagrid: Okay let's not fight. I broke it. Let me pay for it Minerva.
  • McGonagall: No! Who broke it?!
  • Snape: Minerva...Filius has been awfully quiet.
  • Flitwick: REALLY?!
  • [Everyone starts arguing]
  • McGonagall: [later] I broke it. I burned my hand so I punched it. I predict 10 minutes from now they'll be at each other's throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little too chummy around here.
Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four Privet Drive, were proud to say they were perfectly normal, thank you very much
