Good at Heart

dearsnape

Sir, Why did you be so mean to Neville? He didn't do something to you. Other than that you prove that no matter how bitter they seem, people are good at heart. Read More »

Felix Felicis

dearsnape

I am having terribly bad luck trying to brew Felix Felicis, the lucky potion! I followed the instructions carefully, but it is possible that someone tampered with it before I completed the last step. I did not find this out until after I drank the potion, and I have not noticed any difference in my luck-it's still bad! Maybe worse because I've broken out in yellow boils. Please, do you know a cure for a bad turn with Felix? Read More »

Severine Prince

dearsnape

Obviously, your enduring love for Lily Evans is one of your most incredible qualities, and your unflinching protection of her son perhaps your greatest triumph. The unfaltering commitment to the cause of the Order of the Phoenix, defense of Harry, and defeat of Lord Voldemort prove an outstanding tenacity and moral fiber. Although it is indeed extremely romantic that you did all of this for many long years in memoriam of your beloved Lily, do you think that without your love for her, you still would have grown as a person and become selfless and helpful enough to do this, or would you have remained a Death Eater? Would you say that your love for Lily definitely made you a better person? Read More »

Inquisitive Badger

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, Did you ever attempt the Animagus transformation while you were at Hogwarts? You certainly have the magical power, capability and intelligence to accomplish it, and it would have been a great way to learn more about what the detestable Marauders were up to. If you did, what did you become? Thank you for your time. Read More »

Frustrated Gryffindor

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, I admire your loyalty and efforts as a professor and spy. i have a question about my lazy teacher: What do I do if a teacher is being lazy and won't help or answer any of my questions? What if they are only teaching because its their job? Who can I go to for help? Read More »

Very Potter Musical

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, Do you still love Lily Potter after all this time? Have you ever watched A Very Potter Musical or any of the sequels? If so, what do you think of it? If not, I suggest you watch it. How should I tell me best friend that I love him? Or should I tell him? Read More »

Ambitious Young Slytherin

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, I was wondering if you had any advice for an ambitious young Slytherin. I plan on going into the highly competitive field of performing arts, and all of the competition and backstabbing can be insanely irritating after a hard day of work. Does the fact that I already have an intolerance for the divas in my field mean that I have chosen a path that is not quite right for my sensibilities, or should I stay on my path? Read More »

Teacher of Muggles

dearsnape

Dear Dear Esteemed Colleague Severus Snape, I hope that this will not be too political or controversial, but I am a teacher in the UK just like yourself. Recently we once again went through the OFSTED procedure to check upon our school and to rate it. I was not a teacher and had never been through this process before when I first learned of the events that happened in Order of the Phoenix, with the Ministry taking over and ruling Hogwarts and that appalling Delores Umbridge thinking she knew something about teaching and making useless decisions that were detrimental left right and centre. I have now been through it twice and now know how close to an actual teacher's school experience during OFSTED it is. My question is this, what were your techniques to survive this imposition of inquisition (Other than abusing students with books, which I'm sure during a muggle inspection would have your school put in 'special measures', but Umbridge seems to approve, I think), and does Hogwarts still periodically find itself subjected to Ministry interference of this kind? (Also, can you please swap potions for Chemistry or Food Tech and come and teach at my school? Please?) Read More »

A Proud Slytherin

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, I have been sorted into Slytherin, and I am very proud of this fact. I would like to become the very best witch I can. However, people keep saying that all Slytherin's are evil, and there is no use trying to be different. I can't believe that's true! Everyone knows that you were a great Slytherin who did great good, and there must be more. Why is it that only the ignoble and bad Slytherins are remembered, while only the good Gryffindors are?

Muggles and Muggleborns

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, I have two questions. What do you honestly think about muggles and muggle-borns? I know you were in love with Lily, and I know that this is truly none of my business, but I can't help but be curious. My second question is which potion do you most like to brew? A was never very good at potions myself, but I've always wanted to be. Read More »

Grieving Gryffindor

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, When I was only a first year I regretfully had my first love on a boy a couple years older than me. I am now heading into my seventh year and I still like this boy. Unfortunately I have recently learned that there is no way he could ever love me considering his sexuality. I know you can sympathize with me considering your past love didn't work out. (sorry) How can I get over him? Read More »

Slytherin of Troy

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, This is supposed to be a question for the professor of the Defense against the Dark Arts class. However, I am sort of doubtful of their teaching skills, and after hearing so many praises from my peers whilst you were taking over prof. Lupin's classes,I find myself inclined to seek out your guidance on the matter. The current research I am working on is dealing with the creature called the Lamia. The Lamia takes the form of a voluptuous woman who also has serpentine features,such as her lower half of the body, having the sense of smell with her tongue ,etc. Now, am I free to assume that the Lamia can be subdued if one knew Parseltongue? And I'd also ask of your personal input with dealing with the creature, should it attack you. How would you deal with it? Read More »

Regretful Ravenclaw

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, I recently attended an event where I had to deliver a speech, and I was terrified. A muggle-born friend of mine insisted that all I really needed was, "Dutch courage” and that I had to, “Imagine the audience naked." After three double Firewhiskeys I prepared to grace the stage, whilst clutching my wand in my hand for dear life. The good news is I managed half of my prepared speech without a hiccup. The bad news? I wordlessly banished the clothes of every audience member in the auditorium. What would you suggest I do to overcome my crippling, and frankly criminal stage fright? I've been threatened with a stint in Azkaban for indecent exposure, unless I can publicly apologize to the entire Wizarding Community for my recent transgressions. Read More »

Different Life Circumstances

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, Though I'm sure you'll scoff at me for asking you to dwell in the past, suppose the Dark Lord had been defeated in truth all those years ago in Godric's Hollow. That would have left you free to pursue a life free of the perils of a double agent, free from having to perform Occlumency at every waking moment, able to express your emotions if you saw fit. If that had been the case, how might your life have been different? Where do you think you would be now? Read More »

Your True Self

dearsnape

Dear Professor Snape, I have so many questions regarding you not showing your true self however I will start with this one, how did you trick The Dark Lord with him being an accomplished Legilimens? Would he not be able to tell if someone was using Occlumency? Read More »
