If you think Severus Snape is my favorite Harry Potter character because he is a “Hero” or “Romantic” you are dead wrong. It’s his depth, complex nature, his internal conflict of intentions vs. actions,  his wounded nature, and his twisted emotional state that makes him one of the most deep, complicated and tragic characters I have ever read and that fascinates me.

How do we solve a problem like Jily?

If you’re in the Harry Potter fandom, there’s one pairing you will see everywhere no matter how you participate. Whether you’re a gif maker, fanfiction writer, or whatever way you get into the fandom, you don’t have to be around for long until you realise that one of the most –if not the most–…

"Lily forgave James for bullying Snape!"

Did it ever occur to you that maybe it wasn’t her place to forgive him?

Why should she forgive? She had nothing to forgive for that. Why is that always tossed around, but never her forging him for being a gross asshole to her? 

Yeah she didn’t give a shit anymore about that after the excuse Severus gave her with the “Mudblood” thing.  Even that smirk when she saw him upside down was pretty telling. :/   It’s almost like she went on to get with James out of spite.

I’ve noticed how a lot of the Severus Snape fans have actually experienced intense bullying and abuse which means we know the difficulties of dealing with it whereas Snape haters tend to be like “oh well I had a friend who perved on me when I wasn’t interested and he creeped me out and even though Snape never did that and never even told Lily how he felt it’s clear that by having feelings for her he was obviously a creep” like fucking hell

It honestly feels that the hard core Snape haters/Marauder-dick hoppers had lives like Lily and James and don’t even have hard lives. 

Then they get to educate us, the bullied and abuse victims, what bullying and abuse is and what it means and how it effects people. 

Some people, unless they face adversity they just can’t identify with other people less fortunate.  They just stay in their comfortable little bubble but that doesn’t stop them from thinking they know it all…

Stop romanticizing Snape. He’s a piece of shit who happened to fall in love. That doesn’t make him a hero.

Stop romanticizing James He’s a piece of shit who happened to fall in love….

Where did it every say/imply James committed sexual assault?

Snape’s Worst Memory. He flips Snape upside down and shows his underwear to the entire student body. When we see him last, he’s saying “Who wants to see me take off Snivelly’s pants?” So there’s also every possibility he exposed Snape’s genitals to the entire class. And to add a heaping pile of stinking swill to the pile, when Lily approaches and says “let him go!” James says he will if Lily goes on a date with him. Hello, coercion!

Now, imagine the entire scene as it was originally written, but with Snape as a girl.

Now, I’ll wait while you go vomit.

James Potter is a sexual assaulter and sexual harasser and should not, under any circumstances, be classed as a hero.

It was never said that was a good thing. Hell, it was readily admitted that James was an asshole. However, you’re missing the entirety of James’ character development. When James fell in love with Lily and she told him she wouldn’t date a bully, he changed his ways and became a better person.

Tagged: when lily said no to snape he called her a slur

OK this is what we’re dealing with.  Please point me to where :

a Snape asked Lily out

b. Lily turned his advances down

Page numbers, please?

I think you’re confusing him with James?  ”Don’t make me hex you Evans!”

Get it right. Snape didn’t use that slur in response to a rejection from Lily. Why do you defend a guy (James) of the same age who does threaten to use violence against a girl specifically for rejecting him??

Saving his wife and child and fighting for a cause that he has absolutely no need to does.

Apparently saving countless lives and people that you hate, doesn’t make one a hero, but saving your wife (like any normal man would) and fighting for a cause that kisses your ass does.

good to know you’re a massive hypocrite. 

Well that was predictable.

If I may say something about that, aren’t Snape and James both heroes in their own way?

Snape supported Voldemort at the beginning (as we can see in the books, that was the reason why Lily didn’t want to be friends with him anymore) and only started to doubt what he was doing when Lily was in danger. Without her death he would probably never have realized what he was doing. And as we see from how he treats Harry (and Neville), he doesn’t support the Order/Dumbledore/the Good Ones because of his sudden morale change, he does it for Lily and because he regrets how he treated HER. In my opinion, that makes him a very interesting kind of hero. He risks his live and (probably) saves a lot of other people, and yes, he fights AGAINST Voldemort, but he does it for a reason that is (in my opinion) not the classical kind of “good”.

James was an idiot in school, he bullied Snape and was pretty arrogant, but as we see later, he changes into a completely different person when he starts to grow up. To blame him for what he did in school and not blame Snape for the mistakes he made would be some ikind of double standard, and if we want to see Snape as a hero we have to agree that people can change. If we say people can’t change, then Snape will forever stay the bitter Death Eater he once was, and James will always be an immature idiot. But back to james. He fought in the Order, he was a good member and he didn’t only protect his family but also may other people.

So in conclusion, they are both heroes who fight for good - just with a different motivation to do so.

(now I’m done, thanks and sorry for any grammar mistakes)

OK People CAN change, but don’t buy into this mantra that all the Jamesfen like to chant “James changed into a completely different person!”  JKR referred to his “relentless bullying” of Snape.  After somehow charming the pants off Saint Lily, he didn’t stop bullying Severus because she’d somehow shown him the light.  He continued bullying him behind her back.  He just got smarter not better. We don’t see that.  We see rash behavior.  He continued to act irresponsbly and I know young people have trouble believing this, but he died at 21 and in Western society anyway, not all people are really, properly “grown up” at 21. He protected HIS FRIENDS.  Not everyone who hated him.  And the events before HBP showed that Snape was no longer acting on his original motivation.  Otherwise he should have just walked away at that point.

Oh nooo they’ll never accept that.  ”That was just a prank! He changed!” I can hear it now so no point to look at the other reblogs.  They don’t get that what Harry saw changed his perception of his dad, and they refuse to change theirs.
