Becoming Severus Snape: Protector of Lily’s Son #MNBHP

snape patronus

“You have kept him alive so that he can die at the right moment?” “Don’t be shocked, Severus. How many men and women have you watched die?” “Lately, only those whom I could not save,” said Snape. He stood up. “You have used me.” “Meaning?” “I have spied for you and lied for you, put myself in mortal danger for you. Everything was supposed to be to keep Lily Potter’s son safe. Now you tell me you have been raising him like a pig for slaughter —” “But this is touching, Severus,” said Dumbledore seriously. “Have you grown to care for the boy, after all?” “For him?” shouted Snape. “Expecto Patronum!” From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe: She landed on the office floor, bounded once across the office, and soared out of the window. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears. “After all this time?” “Always,” said Snape. DH Love drives us to do things we cannot imagine. For Snape, it was protecting Harry Potter—the son of his greatest enemy and his greatest love. Always-love is not easy. It makes ... Read More »

You’re a mean one – Severus Snape

new-dh-ask-snape

Dear Severus Snape, I would really like to ask you a question. You were really rude with Harry Potter in the school, and I just can't imagine why. I know his father used to make your life terrible, but it doesn't mean you should have done the same with Harry. I mean, he isn't the one you chose his parents, right? He was just the sufferer.

Metaphorical Potions

dearsnape

Professor Snape, I (obviously) have a question that I believe you have the answer to. If, metaphorically speaking, you wished to get rid of a rather annoying teacher (Professor Gilderoy Lockhart for example), what would be the best potion or poison to either disable or kill (I'd be perfectly happy with the latter!) them so that one does not have to endure his incessant ability to incite blood-lust in even the most...

Music Never Lies

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, With all my respect, I think that Professor Dumbledore used and abused you (and maybe Harry) and was very selfish when he asked you to kill him. I know you promised him loyalty, but how do you feel about it? Or do you think I'm wrong with that point of view? Read More »

Love for Lily

dearsnape

Professor Snape, Wow, it's been such a long time visiting the magical land. There is always questions that I am curious to ask you whatsoever. Do you think if you love Lily Evans enough you will let her go with James? Because what I have seen from your action is no matter how much you love her you don't think her happiness is a number one priority. If you really love her would it be enough to see her happy with James? Read More »

Slytherin Princess

dearsnape

Professor Snape, Over the past few weeks, on numerous occasions, I have attempted to make a love potion. I am aware the effects of a love potion are not that of love, only obsession and lust. However, it is one potion I have aspired to perfect for many years but have unfortunately been successful. I am aware that a name you went by was "the half blood prince" and that in a textbook, during your youth, wrote tips and orders next to spells for them to be made easier, which Harry came across. I was hoping you would help me and give me the correct ingredients and instructions for a love potion as I have come across many different instructions. Read More »

Admiration and Respect

dearsnape

Professor Snape, I really admire you, and I’d love for you to give me your opinion on a few things. I am new at Hogwarts, and am excited to learn everything I possibly can about magic. I can't wait to learn Potions, so I can learn how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even stopper death. However, I have a bit of a problem. The Sorting Hat put me in Slytherin. As you surely know, that house has a terrible reputation for producing evil wizards. Right now, the only thing I can think of to like about my placement in Slytherin is that I share a house with you. You're a good, brave man who has a kind heart and who has done many great things, not the least of which was being the only one to trick the Dark Lord, and you're a Slytherin, but are wizards like you only the exception there?
