harry potter severus

What bothers me the most about the “friendzone” interpretation of Snape, it’s not the mischaracterisation of Snape himself, but the complete lack of understanding what a “friendzone” guy is.

Do you think a friendzoned guy would accept the refusal, yet still be envolved in the well-being of the girl, endanger his life trying to save hers, and then watch over her kid until his very end? Nope, the friendzoned guy would have whined, used his pain to touch another girl, got rejected 4546th times until his tragedy becomes the consistency of rejection and not a particular rejection itself, and after her death, would have passed by her ravaged house, rise his fedora, said out loud “this is what you get when you marry assholes” and at the pub he’d have sighed deeply with his boys wondering : “why do women always prefer to get killed by Dark Lords instead of dating Nice Guys” and all the boys would have nodded because it happened to four of them so that’s the proof, women just prefer get killed in wars, how strange yet fascinating creatures, so mysterious, so killable. 

The fact that J.K. Rowling is not going to write some stuff about snape ever again makes me so sad.

I want to know more of his anguish and pain, how he managed to live in his muggle house with that despicable father of his, and how much he loved Eileen.

I want to know more about his dreams before Lily came to his life.

I want to hear him talk about his passion for learning and studying.

I just want to know more about his personality. I feel like there are so many things left unsaid.

something else that nobody talks about: snapes first glance at harry and how it differs from the book

in the book, it says 

“it happened very suddenly. the hook-nosed teacher looked past quirrell’s turban straight into harry’s eyes - and a sharp, hot pain shot across the scar on harry’s forehead…..harder to shake off was the feeling harry had gotten from the teacher’s look - a feeling that he didn’t like harry at all.”

but in the movie, we get this exchange instead:

snape doesn’t look like he hates harry at all. in fact, it’s as if he’s realised something

a lot of alans performance, all the subtle movements and facial expressions, boiled down to what jk had told him before filming: that he was in love with lily. and i know we were supposed to be thrown off from his intentions in the books, but isn’t this somehow better? that we don’t get an exactly clear indication of snapes feelings for harry right off the bat, but rather a curious, almost unreadable, glance? 

ugh bless you alan rickman </3

Neville couldn't be the Chosen One

I’ve seen some people claim that Neville could be the Chosen One if Voldemort have picked the Longbottoms instead of the Potters, because both of them had babies in the end of July and it makes sense (that’s one of the thousand reasons J.K. is a genious) BUT I’m pretty sure lots of people realised that Neville wouldn’t survive like Harry did because…
SNAPE DIDN’T WANT ALICE LONGBOTTOM. (I said want because I have problems with saying Snape loved Lily, it’s more like an obsession but anyways)
Lily’s sacrifice is the only reason Harry survived. Because she had a CHOICE. Snape had asked Voldemort to keep her. And so Voldemort gave her a chance to scape. BECAUSE OF SNAPE’S BEGGING. The protection around Harry, the reason Riddle couldn’t kill this baby, we all know, was because of a choice.
Alice Longbottom would probably do the same to protect Neville. But unfortunately she wouldn’t have a choice to stand for her baby like Lily because probably no one would ask Voldemort to keep her life.
That’s why, again, Snape was a key character. You may not like him (like me) but we all have to agree that Severus Snape helped to build Voldemort’s biggest enemy.

  • Snape: This is your copy of Advanced Potion-Making, is it, Potter?
  • Harry: Yes.
  • Snape: You're quite sure of that, are you, Potter?
  • Harry: Yes.
  • Snape: This is the copy of Advanced Potion-Making that you purchased from Flourish and Blotts?
  • Harry: Yes.
  • Snape: Then why does it have the name "Roonil Wazlib" written inside the front cover?
  • Harry: That's my nickname.
  • Snape: Your nickname.
  • Harry: Yeah ... that's what my friends call me.

"GET DOWN HERE- uh Albus Sirius?! James Lupin? Merlin Harry why did you name our children!!!' LISTEN I MAY NOT REMEMBER YOUR NAMES BUT YOU LIVE HERE SO YOU CAN'T HIDE!!!!" -Ginny coming home after harpies practice seeing a broken vase on the floor. "AND CLEAN THIS UP ARE YOU KIDS BLOODY WIZARDS OR NOT?"

Albus: I mean… That seems kinda wrong.

Ginny: I SWEAR ON GODRIC GRYFFINDOR IF YOU BOYS DON’T GET DOWN HERE RIGHT NOW–

Scorpius has a thing for Albus

Draco has a thing for Harry

So, I was thinking, wouldn’t it be funny if Lucius had a thing for James?

And Lucius’ dad had a thing for James’ dad

And there was just a long line of Malfoys having a thing for Potters

But no one was brave enough to say anything cause family honour and stuff

Until Scorpius just comes along and proclaims his love for Albus and like no one is surprised at all

But then it just stops, like the Malfoys don’t have a thing for the Potters cause the bloodlines have finally mixed and the Weasleys are there too (cause Ginny married Harry) and everyone is just one big happy family and ahhh

how I imagine albus coming out to harry

Harry: so I heard from James that you’re dating someone?

Albus (already planning james’ murder): wha- oh yeah?

Harry: well, who is she?

Albus: you see, well… um, it’s not exactly a ‘she’.

Harry:

Harry: th-that’s not a problem, I s'pose. Who is he then?

Albus: it’s Scorpius, dad

Harry:

Harry (already flooed to the Malfoy household): maLFOY WE HAVE A PROBLEM

I dont want to study for my exams and I want to draw shitty memes

  • Regulus is trying to be cooler than his brother.

  • Bellatrix is wearing red so you wont see the blood 
  • and Barty just don’t give a fuck.
