I’d love a Marauders Era story, but I just know they’d end up portraying James as an all-out dick with no redeeming qualities, Hogwarts wasn’t hiring so I teach muggles instead while Snape would be portrayed as the misunderstood, do-no-wrong saint, as most Potter fans tend to view him
Top Hogwarts wasn’t hiring so I teach muggles instead items!
Neither were all-out dicks. James was, and then he grew up and became a decent person – a fact which Snape-worshippers willfully forget. Snape never grew up. He was a petty, vindictive and obsessive bully for his entire adult life. He bullied CHILDREN as a fully grown man. Hogwarts wasn’t hiring so I teach muggles instead. All that being said, you can never deny his bravery. At the end of James’ story, he became someone I could get behind. Snape, however, for all his bravery, is the character I hate above all others. Yes, even above Umbridge.
For me, snape is my favourite character. Thank you for acknowledging his bravery but without him, harry would have 0% possibility of winning against voldemort. Snape risk his own life protecting harry, protecting lily. A good act does not erase the bad, nor vice versa. I wish people would realise that. He did a handful of good deeds, so am I now expected to ignore the fact that he actively practiced and obsessed over dark magic; that he created a spell which literally slashes its victim; that he joined the Death Eaters; that, when begging for Lily’s safety, he had to be guilted into also asking for the protection of an innocent man and baby; that he took pleasure in belittling, humiliating and emotionally abusing children? Sorry, but no. James grew up for Lily Evans. Snape never grew up at all.
Show me your color and hope you like!
besides, dude didn’t even have his wand out. That tends to happen when you’re being a good dad. So we’re clear, by the way, it wasn’t Harry, or Snape, or anybody else who saved the Wizarding World. It was the combined efforts of all involved. Don’t get carried away in your worshipping. Snape wasn’t that terrible he just lacked social skills. Yea he had a bad past after being bullied and being to scared to do anything about it. I mean deep down snape was just a cowardly person who being so smart couldn’t overcome that cowardice part of himself. A lot of them also think the world is black and white. You’re either a hero or a villain. Those people shouldn’t be taken seriously.
