Why you defend Snape so much when there are characters (basically all Weasleys besides the twins) who have worse treatment by the HPfandom? I'm not saying you shouldn't defend Snape if you think that someone is wrong about him, but why you chose this character to be more protective of? It seems that when someone is saying something bad about him you're there to defend him. I agree with you most times, but other times seems more as fangirling and you don't seem the type.
(D’ja see the posts I did about Neville and Snape last night?)
There’s actually a very simple reason for it. The Weasley/Harry/Hermione/Ron bashing posts almost never show up on my dash, because the people I choose to follow generally love those characters. I’m very careful as to who I follow and that kind of bashing tends to send me incandescent with rage. Especially if it’s about Harry. I am perfectly happy to defend any of those characters. Send me posts bashing those characters if you like, I’ll go for it. But seeing them tends to agitate and upset me to the degree that I choose to try to avoid seeing them in the first place.
Unfortunately, because fandom has to be divided into factions, because it’s not okay to just love the books, people who love the Gryffindor characters often hate Snape. The pro-Gryffindor BNFs all hate him and constantly post quippy little posts about how they hate him and their followers imitate what they do. And I get why people hate him. He’s horrible to the Gryffindors with no excuse other than his deep bitterness, bias and resentment due to the awful things he went through as a child and teenager. (I absolutely reject the “He had to be awful to them to maintain his cover” argument.) He bullied Harry because Harry reminded him of James. It’s in the text, spelled out. So I get why people hate a character who was mean to their faves and my appreciation of him is tested every time I re-read the books and see him whispering threats and insults into Harry’s ear.
I also have a huge amount of sympathy for him, though. I was bullied, had a shitty childhood, have anger issues as a result. I can’t dismiss him as a monster. And as I’ve said before, when I defend him, I’m also defending the books. Snape’s character arc and his journey are enormously important to the overall themes of the series. If you reject him as a flawed hero, if you mock Harry for naming his son after him, then you’ve missed a pretty major point. Part of loving Harry, of understanding who he is as a character, means understanding why he chose to forgive and honour Snape.
So, basically, I don’t do many Gryff defence posts, because I don’t see them. I will immediately unfollow anyone who bashes Harry, the Weasleys, Hermione or JKR (or Cursed Child). I choose to follow people who love those characters, and sadly that means I end up seeing a lot of Snape and Dumbledore hate.
TL:DR: I post more Snape defence and less Gryffindor defence because I see more Snape hate than Gryffindor hate.
