- me as a jedi: *hits on general grievous*
you are absolutely correct that snape is a miserable trash bag of a human and generally a bad, awful, inexcusably abusive person. but i think the reason that so many people do like him, is that he's a bad person, but he's a good character, y'know? he would probably be less interesting if he were less horrible, because his final choices wouldn't stand out as much. sorry for the discourse, just my two cents.
