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!

Slytherin couldn,t have had a better head of house. As a kid who
was bullied in school, Severus Snape is my hero. Severus and
Lucius are favorite characters in the whole book. Happy Birthday
professor, and long live my own Half Blood Prince!

Haha! to think i even created the email snapeisevil@hotmail still creeps me out. now we know everything, well almost, it seems quite ridiculous how we battered him as a fandom back between 6 and 7. Happy Birthday Snape, though you may be slimy, crafty and dodgy, you will always be remembered by the bravery and undying love that you show till the very end. Everyone, remember to shampoo today! (:

Severus, you were an incredible man. Although you had your problems and you weren’t a very kind person in general, you showed that underneath you still had a true heart, and that love is the most powerful thing of all. You are a hero. Happy Birthday!

Love, Radish

Sue, Beautifully put!

Other than Harry, I think Snape is the most heroic character in HP.

He is a horrible vile chracter and all though the books he bullied students. I wonder if people would of liked him as a teacher at your schools, im sure the answer is no as he went out of his way to make people feel bad about themselves. There is clearly nothing to admire in him at all.

Happy birthday to Severus S. Snape- He’s always going to be my Potions Master. I think he stole the last 2 books from Harry! JK should have written the series about Severus instead..

“Severus Snape and the Philosopher’s Stone” has a nice sound to it. ;)

Happy Birthday Snape. A complex man, both nasty, sullen, but mostly the bravest man Harry ever knew. Cheers to you mate!
