Please give @sophireaptress a follow guys. She could use the support right now I’m sure. As I know how this must feel heartbreaking for her!
Something’s not right about what I’m doing but I’m still doing it—living in the worst parts, ruining myself. My inner life is a sheet of black glass. If I fell through the floor I would keep falling. The enormity of my desire disgusts me.
What makes me sad is that the moment Snape makes that doe Patronus is such an incredibly empowering moment for him. He’s just had this eye opening conversation with Dumbledore and he’s realized that he’s been used and manipulated and lied to and it’s the first time that he’s standing up for himself and who he is and why he’s doing any of this and demanding that Dumbledore acknowledge it.
He’s been telling Dumbledore for months that he’s unhappy, that he’s not sure if he wants to continue. He’s been asked to do horrific things and any time he protests Dumbledore throws it in his face that he owes Lily and that it’s not about Snape anymore and that it’s about Harry. Never mind that the war has always been so much bigger than Harry and both Dumbledore and Voldemort have a bad case of tunnel vision. Never mind that Dumbledore is just punishing Snape for making the same mistake he did.
So Snape makes this Patronus and Dumbledore is actually shocked because he’s been lording that conversation on the hilltop over Snape for 16 years. Sixteen years. But not once did he actually take Snape seriously. And Snape isn’t having that shit anymore. He’s making a stand and whatever he does from there on out he’s doing on HIS terms. And I think that’s the first time Snape and Dumbledore ever understood each other as equals and it’s so amazing.
