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.
