The Bravest Man I Ever Knew
January 09, 2009, 06:09 AM
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 Severus Snape!
Always knew you were a talented, brave wizard and never doubted you once!
I wonder if JKR realised she gave Snape the same birthday as Richard Nixon?
Well, every year I celebrate for Snape and curse at Nixon.
Happy Birthday, Professor Snape.
Happy Birthday, Professor Snape, wherever you are, and congratulations on a job well done! You are indeed the bravest. And you’ll always be my favorite!
Severus, I am so sorry that I failed to remember your birthday… please forgive me.
Happy Birthday, Love.
“He was heroic, admirable and inspiring, while being simultaneously dishonorable, despicable and a horrible example” – biographer Stephen Ambrose on Richard Nixon, whose birthday also fell on January 9.
Now, I have an idea for a new musical: Frost/Severus…….
snape was a small, mean and nasty man. He treated a small boy(11) very badly for no good reason. If he truly loved Lily, he would have loved her son and treated him kindly. His love for Lily was NOT enough of a redemition. When he only wanted to save her, and DD called him on it. I think that explained his character. He wasn’t evil just mean spirited.
