I just don’t think Alan Rickman and Benedict Cumberbatch look ANYTHING alike. 

They just don’t.  Totally different faces and colouring, hair type, eye shape and colour..etc.  As for their voices, they’re both British men with deep voices. And Benedict does silly impressions of him sometimes.  That’s all. 

I don’t see why the constant need to say they look alike. :/  I enjoy both of them but I don’t try to say they’re the same.  They’re both pretty unique.

kaijuqueer answered: Would he like to be that vulnerable and unable to defend himself? I like to that he preferred a polyphasic sleep schedule.

Hmmmmm.. yeah… I mean it lasts say 10-15 minutes and his quarters are warded, but :/   I guess polyphasic would be possible too, only imo it seems like besides just after classes, his schedule could be pretty irregular.  Well I guess there’s Girding Potion, Wit-sharpening potion….

Okay, but seriously. why did Snape never write a potions book? The one we see in the Half-blood Prince is obviously outdated and has been used since Harry’s parents were in school. You would think that in all that time someone (like Slughorn who taught potions for countless years) might have realized that the potions didn’t work like they were supposed to (like everyone else’s potions besides Harry’s who was using Snape’s revised book) and you’re telling me that in at least 20 years Snape never did anything with his life besides teach and mope around about Lily? He never thought of using the talents he had for anything else besides teaching little kids basic potions He definitely had enough or more talent to write an updated and far improved potion book. Plus he had those skills as a 16 year old, so he probably only improved over the years. As well as he was written in the end, I think that there is definitely a lot of unused potential in Snape and his talents.

Well it’s pretty clear he did more than just teach and mope about Lily, but even in the 10 years or so before Harry came to Hogwarts he might have had time for it.  However, it’s not uncommon that depressed people don’t live up to their full potential.  He told Dumbledore he wished he was dead.  He might not have felt inspired to write a potions textbook.  When do we see him getting any kind of therapy, besides burying himself in his work? (teaching & being Potions Master meaning he was also responsible for brewing all the school needed). Maybe that was all he could or wanted to do at that point.  I don’t know.

But sure, there’s a TON of wasted potential there. 

Wow. Thanks. That’s a really good answer and it makes a ton of sense.

Thanks :)  I mean, I agree, channeling his energies into creating something positive using his talents would have been a healthy thing to do, but all indications are that he just wasn’t.  Like when people say “But why didn’t he just be NICE to Harry?”  Well, again they’re assuming the healthy thing to do; what THEY think they would do (not understanding how f’d up Snape was).  Especially towards the end of it, I don’t know how he just got out of bed in the morning and faced things.

So tired of people saying Harry should’ve named Albus Severus after Lupin..uh hello!? Lupin has a son-Edward REMUS Lupin- who is Harry’s godson.  -_- 

They should just complain to JK Rowling because she wrote that for a good reason and keep it the fuck out the Snape tag.


And even ignoring the plot device aspect and the fact that yes, a child was already named after Remus … let’s assume that everyone names their children for all the same reasons?!

And then they say, “Well why not Neville or Rubeus or Arthur?”

And it’s like… YOU KNOW WHY SHUT UP. They just don’t like it and even if “books are for their readers” there comes a point where the reader still isn’t entitled to get what they want out of a story. That’s what fanfiction is for. 

Yeah why not write one where Harry goes on to have at least 20 other kids and names them after everyone in Gryffindor House basically.  And the littlest one was Dobby Winky.
