How do snape stans think that snape never destroyed life’s but only saved them? What do you think he did as a death eater? death eater’s go around killing and torturing people. And he’s the one who told the prophecy to Voldemort destroying both the Potters’ and Longbottoms’ lives…

Oh by all means he destroyed lives. He was a Death Eater. That’s what Death Eaters do. But it’s important to realize that he saved lives as well, probably more than he destroyed, when he worked as a double agent. He saved Harry’s life, after all, and that’s akin to saving the entire Wizarding world.

There’s a quote from Deathly Hallows, lemme see if I can find it…. Ah, yes, here it is. Page 687 of the hardcover copy.

Dumbledore: “How many men and women have you watched die?”
Snape: “Lately, only those whom I could not save.”

This just goes to show that Snape changed over time. He no longer kills and destroys for the sheer pleasure of killing and destroying. Is he still a horrible, prejudiced, bitter, spiteful person who is unduly rude to Harry and his friends, if not the whole of Gryffindor? Oh, undoubtedly. But he also has some redeeming qualities. They don’t overpower his bad qualities, or make his bad qualities inconsequential. But they should be taken into account when talking about Snape.

Side note: I don’t say he’s rude to Gryffindor as a whole because I have started to have my doubts on that, but I need to reread the books to confirm my suspicions. Still, I feel it’s unfair to make a blanket statement without having done my research, so I chose not to. Just a brief explanation for my decision.

Well how do you know he “destroyed lives” - yes he ended up destroying the Potters’ lives as it turned out but at that age when he heard the prophecy and not knowing who it was about, possible he didn’t think through the consequences. Idk   And again, explain what he says to Dumbledore???  Why does he have any reason to be concerned for his soul, even if he went through with what would be a “mercy killing”??  I mean you don’t undo your soul being split by becoming a double agent or anything else, you think?? :/ 

Well, it’s pretty canon that Severus revealing the prophecy to Voldemort directly led to the death of James and Lily Potter, and turned Harry’s life into a living Hell. I think you could also argue that Snape fucked up the Weasleys, too, because Voldemort coming to power and fighting for Harry led to the death of Fred. Plus, Severus was directly responsible for the loss of George’s ear.

BUT. But. You’re right when you bring up the point of Severus being afraid his soul was gonna tear. It could be because he was simply afraid, and not because he had any good intentions. In fact, I do believe that when Severus says that quote (“And my soul, Dumbledore? Mine?” Pg. 683) part of it is that he’s offended Dumbledore apparently values Draco’s soul over Snape’s. However, there is the underlying worry that he doesn’t want his soul to split. Ergo, he doesn’t want to kill anyone. His motivations might not be pure, but it doesn’t change the fact that he doesn’t want to kill.

I’m not denying he told LV the prophecy, of course that’s canon.  People will read into it what they want but it’s not like as some people say he did it deliberately knowing it was about the Potters as some plot to get rid of of James & Harry.  And when he found out LV was going after them, why would it occur to him to beg for James’s life, and Harry, that was the whole point of the prophecy.  But Voldemort was already a “thing” before that.  And he’d already tangled with the Potters - “thrice denied”.  And IF Snape hadn’t asked him to spare Lily, he would not have given her the choice to stand aside, she would not have had the opportunity to cast the sacrificial protection and no “boy who lived”.  

People will blame Snape for everything if they want to.  Let’s see now you’ve blamed him for Fred’s death.  I’ve also heard he was trying to kill George when he blew his ear off (hang on - you DO know that that happened because he was aiming at a DE who was going to kill REMUS??  His bff oh wait no he wasn’t), that he personally killed Charity Burbage (wtf), and Dobby, and too many ridiculous other things to remember. 

I point out that “Lately only those I could not save” when Dumbledore asks him how many people he’s watched die and “they” deny what it means.  So that would be somewhat of a risk for a DE to actually save people, no?  And who are they? What’s their connection to Lily?

As for his motivations, he’d just found out that his whole “mission” of keeping Lily’s son safe had been a lie. The “selfish” thing to do would be to say well screw you and walk away from it all.  But he didn’t, even though things got much worse from then on.  No wonder he wasn’t a ray of fucking sunshine.  

Oh, absolutely. I agree with everything you’ve said. He didn’t purposely set out to do anything, and in fact, he likely saved more lives than he destroyed.

But the thing is, he still destroyed lives. Had he not told Voldy the prophecy, or had he told Voldy the whole prophecy, Voldy may have killed Neville or no one at all. In the end, Severus did lead to the deaths of James and Lily Potter. And I’m not blaming Severus for Fred’s death. I’m simply saying it could be argued that Severus’ actions led indirectly to Fred’s death. Also, I know that Snape didn’t mean to cut off George’s ear, but it still happened.

Basically, what I’m saying is, motivation aside, people’s lives got fucked over because of Severus Snape. Does it make him a bad person? No. Everyone makes mistakes. (Gross generalization, I know, but you get my point.) I’m just saying, when looking at Snape, you have to see the good and the bad side by side, and not allow your view of one side to cloud your view of the other, if that makes sense.

Well the bad view gets exaggerated all the goddamn time.  And I don’t even stan the way some people do either. No really, I don’t.  But … well basically every bad thing that ever happens to anyone in the whole thing gets blamed on him and none of what he does or goes through redeems him at all.  There. that’s what you’re basically told everyday on tumblr.  Makes sense. :/

I love how Sirius teaches Harry that people can’t be split into two categories, good people and death eaters … everyone has good and evil inside them …. Except Snape ….. Snape’s entirely evil …. -.- Hypocrite.

And also “If…

2 on 1, Remus never participated and Pettigrew hung back laughing and clapping his hands like a brain dead seal. But still isn’t fair. I’m not defending Sirius, I hate the character. His only redeeming attribute was that he was played by Gary Oldman.

Oh OK of course Snape was lying when he said “4 to 1” to Harry right.

No I think Snape saw it as 4-1. Lupin who was a prefect did nothing, which is worse than participating, and Pettigrew condoned their behavior. So in a way it was 4-1 just not an all out 4-1 attack, if that makes sense. They where 4 as a group and therefore lumped together.

Er… yeah…. so …much…better. <_<

Yeah well …. Sirius always saw Snape as trying to be superior, and he wasn’t exactly kind to his ‘inferiors’.

Hm it doesn’t quite jibe though. But 4 on 1 isn’t exactly an “equal” fight either.

On “Severus Snape: A Slytherin Who Died Like A Gryffindor”

deer-digest:

Here’s the thing:

Snape did not die like a Gryffindor.

Most of the Gryffindors at least those who are quintessential Gryffindors we see die go out in a blaze of bravery and glory, making some sort of dramatic final stand or protecting their loved ones

Snape didn’t do that.

Snape died trying to outsmart/ outwit Voldemort, trying to save his own life, trying to talk a psychopath out of murdering him.

He died like a Slytherin, but that’s a good thing!

As Sirius said, “the world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters.” Each House is associated with good and admirable qualities, and each house has its shortcomings. The books aren’t split into good Gryffindors and bad Slytherins.

Yes, most of the Slytherins we see in the books use their cunning, ambition, and other “Slytherin” characteristics negatively which is a shame but those aren’t necessarily bad or evil qualities! And bravery and intelligence and loyalty aren’t always good, or used for good. Rushing headlong into a dangerous situation isn’t always the most admirable choice. It takes another type of bravery to try to talk your way out of being killed, to look death square in the face and stay calm and try to convince your attacker to stop.

I’m not apologizing for him- far from it. Snape is not a good person. He is very, very flawed- and he makes some terrible choices- but he dies trying to right some of his wrongs. Perhaps not for the right motivations, but he tried. That’s what sets him apart from the Malfoys of the world. He dies fighting against Voldemort, dies trying to protect Harry and the Order’s cause, dies because of his loyalty to Dumbledore. But you know what? The qualities that are most stereotypically Slytherin- the cunning, ambition, resourcefulness, self-preservation, etc- are what keep him alive for so long. They’re what allow him to live as a spy and double-agent for so many years. They’re what made him such an asset to the Order, to Hogwarts, to the Death Eaters. He certainly doesn’t always use these traits for good (for the most part, he is not a good man); but he does try to do some good in the world, with the assets he’s got.

Basically what I’m trying to say is that we don’t need to say “he died like a Gryffindor" to say he died heroically or valiantly or whatever.

Snape died like a Slytherin and there should be nothing wrong with that.

Really needed to be said.  That pisses me off every time.

  • What they say to kids who want pets:

    Are you sure you're not just saying you want one because all your friends have one? Remember, it's not going to be small and cute forever, it will grow up eventually! It's a living being that will depend entirely on you for the rest of its life. Are you really sure you're ready for this?

  • What they say to adults who DON'T want kids:

    Oh, you'll want one sooner or later. Everybody does, after all. Besides, babies are soooo cute, aren't they? You'd better hurry up before you get too old!
