The Bravest Man I Ever Knew

Character Birthdays

Today, the calendar on JKRowling.com marks another birthday, but for us here at Leaky, this marks a day meant for reflection, remembrance and perhaps even celebration of a character who so vividly filled the pages of the Harry Potter series.  To some, this character will remain  a nasty, unpleasant man, a villain, others love and adore this complex and fascinating character who still merits long discussion in our fandom. To Harry, he was, quite simply,  the bravest man he ever knew. 

Happy Birthday, Severus Snape!

Happy Birthday, professor.
(I still think you’re a mean and nasty git.) (changes name, goes into hiding and dons a disguise to avoid incoming missiles!)

Happy Birthday, Severus. I had hope for you all along, and you proved me right in a way that was far beyond what could ask for or imagine. Thank you making these books even more real to me. Lily would have been so proud of her dear friend!

Happy Birthday Severus! I will ALWAYS love the character who kept so many guessing for so long. I never doubted his loyalty.

Happy Birthday, Severus Snape. Voldemort may have been the Dark Lord, but you will always be my Dark Prince.
