because it's just character development right guys

so i’m reading harry potter now (thats right, i’m doing all your childhood classics while i’m an adult  i have my reasons)

so anyway

I’m just super annoyed about snapes character because he is such an asshole.  Like he didn’t have to be such an asshole, he coul’ve been a mean teacher who still, you know, actually promotes teaching and learning his damn stupid through all his complaints that no ones good at it

Like, i get he couldn’t’ve been a nice character, espically to Harry, because he was a double spy and had to act like Voldemorts supports wanted, espically with people like Malfoy in his class.  But he didn’t have to be such an irredeemable prick.  Like he could’ve been the one guy that say Dumbledore as the malipulative wizard he was and actually warned people of that, he could’ve been an actual representation of someone who’d made a mistake duing the death eaters and realized this and decided to become a good person

But nope, for all the ways a strict-and-kinda-mean-but-not-abusive snape could’ve been, instead we just get a straight up abusive snape who thinks he’s totally justified and is honoured after the war.  Like sure, he should’ve gotten a medal but he was no damn hero

anyway

that was all

gonna go read wish fulfillment fics now
