[[If I could revive one character, I wouldn’t revive Fred or Dobby. I would revive Severus Snape. He spent 20 years walking the line between two masters. He was never free. It doesn’t matter if you like him or not; I don’t think there’s any character who deserves a normal life as much as he.]]










Oh lord, if there’s one character that should absolutely stay dead…. (and perma-friendzoned in the afterlife, though he’d be lucky to get even that much from Lily after the absolute fuckhead he was to her son)

Albus Severus Potter and the curse of the awful name.

"It is our names, Albus, that show which child our parents really hate, far more than our abilities"

Poor Albus 😢

For me the only difference between Umbridge and Snape is that Umbridge had more power (literally became headmistress) and had the goverment backing her up (Fudge). But other than that, they both treated their students horribly and both should have never became teachers.

Snape: Not The Hero We Deserve

yourcanadianoverlord:

Snape has largely been considered a heroic character within the Potter fandom, with apologists going so far as to suggest that he did nothing wrong. However, anyone who reads the books with a critical eye knows that Severus Snape, one of the most well-written and interesting characters of the series, was a complete toolshed. This panel, which will be open to screaming and boos from the audience, is designed to separate impressions of Snape’s value as a literary character from his values as a person within the books.

Okay, this is still bugging me.
If Rowling knew that Snape really couldn’t have cared less about Harry if it weren’t for Lily, then why did she still write Harry naming his second son after him?

??!????!!!?!?!!??!?

I need answers, please.

to show…

Okay, woah, I never thought of it as a COMPARISON between their decisions. That’s definitely something to think about.

There are some very explicit parallels made between Snape and Harry in the books. Both of them had deprived early lives and unpleasant home situations, and both of them saw Hogwarts as more of a home than said unpleasant home. But neither of them had an idyllic time during their Hogwarts years either - war was coming and they had to pick a side, and then there was that spoiled pureblood boy making life difficult.

But Harry was also a very very different person than Snape. And he responded to hardship and pain differently.

When Snape’s childhood bully (James) had his life endangered by the consequences of Snape’s own actions (prophecy), Snape had to be shamed into asking for the protection of that man and his infant son.

When Harry’s childhood bully (Dudley) had his life endangered by the consequences of someone else (Umbridge) deciding to have Harry silenced, Harry acted to save him without a second thought.

When Snape had his life saved by someone who bullied him both before and after the saving (James), he spent his adult life running that man down to his orphaned son and bullying said son.

When Harry had his life saved by someone who bullied him both before and after the saving (Snape), he used his adult life to honour that man by naming his son after him and telling said son that that man was one of the bravest he ever knew.

The best thing Harry learned from Snape was quite simply ‘don’t do this. Be better than that.’

Everyone is always saying how Robin will be mad when he hears what Regina did to Marian, but technically she didn’t do anything because Emma took her”

Then hopefully he didn’t hear Regina bitch Emma out for taking Marian, thus saving her life.

mmusichettas:

harry potter named his child after severus snape, a character who mercilessly abused his students for years, and not remus lupin, a character who watched his best friend die but forced himself to hold harry back so he wouldn’t hurt himself

but snape is “the bravest man he’s ever known” instead of lupin

Harry Potter: Eternally fucked up.

I do not defend the decision to name his child “Severus”. I used to be okay with it but, ~message of the series~ notwithstanding I now think it’s fucked up on countless levels, not the least of which being that had Snape lived (or even came back as a ghost) it just would’ve been one more thing he’d  be an utter fucknut to Harry about.

BUT HARRY HAS A CHILD NAMED REMUS ALREADY! HIS GODSON WHO CAME FIRST, HAS FIRST DIBS ON THAT NAME AND BASICALLY GREW UP ALONGSIDE HIS OWN KIDS HAS THE NAME REMUS, I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE STILL WANK ABOUT THIS LIKE IT’S OCCURRED TO NO ONE HOW MUCH OF A JACKASS YOU’D HAVE TO BE TO HAVE ONE OF YOUR GODSON’S ALMOST-BROTHERS NAMED TO SERVE AS A CONSTANT REMINDER THAT HIS REAL DAD IS DEAD.

How exactly is Dobby free if Harry just didn’t care about him at all?

OK, could you please tell me what the big huge thing Season 3 did with Regina was that put you and others off of her, aside from overselling her turn to good in the last few episodes? Because I'm still not seeing how she was worse there than she was in Season 2.

I’m having a hard time with words today, so I’m just going to make a list. I hope that’s okay.

  • The narrative frames her dependence on Henry as something positive (or ’tragic and beautiful’)
  • Her victims are apologizing to her instead of the other way around
  • Regina is breaking pre-established canon (you can’t love without your heart, only the Savior can break the Dark Curse, and she can apparently learn light magic instantaneously)
  • She’s being presented as redeemed despite the fact that she is nowhere close to this
  • The only time she actually apologized to someone was when she needed something from them, which most likely means she would have never apologized if she hadn’t needed their help
  • Regina’s entire mistreatment of Henry was ignored by making them ‘true love’
  • Her reason to keep living is that she ‘found someone else to destroy’
  • And the whole ‘not having regrets’ thing

That’s all I can think of off the top of my head.
