Am I the only one who ships Snape and Lily more than James and Lily?
it infuriates me when people tell me “lifes too short to not forgive people!” like NO lifes too short for me to continually allow abusive and manipulative behavior in my life and live in a constant state of anxiety bc I want to be “nice” or whatever
that’s… not how forgiveness works. i don’t forgive someone for them or to be nice. i forgive them for myself so that bitterness won’t eat away at me. i don’t “forgive and forget” because that’s bullshit. i forgive and move on. forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behavior and it doesn’t invite them to continue abusing me. it’s important to create boundaries around yourself, but don’t keep that negativity inside either. life’s too short to be bitter. if anything it makes your life shorter.
Can we all remember that time when Snape mixed black and white clothing during laundry?
Do you remember the time when Snape made all of the children hand over their lunch money because he is totally a child abusing asshole?
Or when he hated Lily for choosing James and called her an ungrateful slut for not sleeping with him instead?
Hey nonny! That’s an interesting question… I think it would probably depend on which parent Harry took after. If she had messy black hair and epic quidditch skills, then I don’t think Snape would go all Baelish on her because in his mind she would still be a mini-James. He’d still be a massive dick - as we saw with Hermione, he won’t pull punches just because Harry is a girl. If anything he’d be crueller. He’d probably tell her how much she looks like her dad, but then be sure to point out her physical flaws as often as possible.
If, however, she were a mini-Lily? Definitely full-blown Petyr creeper. He’d probably take a special interest in her potions and call her by her first name just so he could pretend she wasn’t a Potter. He might even accidently call her Lily a couple of times. I can see him hanging around Gimmauld Place more often just to see her, or taking her under his wing in their Occlumency lessons. Given how possessive he was of Lily, it just makes sense that he would see her in her daughter and behave accordingly. He wouldn’t just accept Dumbledore’s plan to kill her at the right moment - he’d do everything he could to get around it, or maybe even convince her to run away with him.
Are you unaware that Ginny looked like Lily, and he didn’t go and try to diddle her? jfc, you marauderfen get dumber by the day, don’t you?
Why would someone who despises kids, suddenly get a boner over one because she just happens to look like a dead friend? people don’t magically turn into pedos because of one person. They are either born one, or not one at all.
Anyone with half a brain would know that and understand it.
Yeah but you know that snape haters aren’t known for their brains but only for their bullshit. :-\
Apparently this one is writing a thesis and is a PHD candidate.
We now have PHD candidates who can’t read or distinguish canon from fanon, or know basic psychology. The world is officially fucked.
I’m jumping ship.
I call bullshit on that. They can say they are former President Jimmy Carter, and it doesn’t make it true.
So yeah, OP. What about Ginny Weasley. Other than their eyes. They have the same hair color, the same personality, they are so oh wonderfully skilled, and they are both raging bitches. Based on that, Snape should be all over Ginny. He doesn’t however.
Very good point. A dude who’s apparently writing a thesis on childrens literature, yet can’t grasp simple concepts or analyze a children’s book? yeah, defiantly bullshit.
I’m not a Snape hater and I’m watching this from the sidelines… but I do have to point out a flaw in your argument: Ginny is a Weasley. Snape has no feelings or attachment for the Weasley family. Snape doesn’t have any good feelings for the Potter family either, but Harry still is Lily’s descendant. So if Harry had been female and looked more like Lily, I wouldn’t say Snape would go full out Peter Baelish, but his attitude might be a little different. You’d be surprised at how appearance changes like that can alter a person’s perceptions.
Regardless though, Snape wouldn’t be on a Baelish level. That makes no sense. But neither does the argument ‘well, he didn’t go after Ginny like that, did he?’
…because Ginny is a Weasley and we know how much importance family names were in the HP world. Especially to Slytherins.
Ginny and Lily share a similiar hair colour (flame red and dark red). We have no idea if they share some facial features. Yeah, and they’re both popular Gryffindor girls… That’s it, imo.
However, I’m 100% certain that Snape wouldn’t be anything like Littlefinger. JKR always said he “loved” Lily, she never called it an obsession.
And do you really think that JKR would’ve written Snape as a paedophile?! I mean, can you really imagine HP with a teacher like that?
I’m certain he would’ve been a bit… nicer, because it would’ve been harder to treat someone - who looks like someone you love - like shit, I imagine.
I really can’t see any parallels between Littlefinger (who’s obviously written as obsessed) and Snape (whose love for Lily is meant to be surprising in a good kind of way), other than them dealing with kids from people they “liked”.
I left the manga and fandom for a few years, but it’s nice to see that I still love NaruSaku like 8 years ago.
[[Yesterday I suddenly needed to go to the bathroom very badly, and one way or another it made me think of Dumbledore discovering the Room of Requirement. And I just imagined Dumbledore at the seventh floor, walking that specific place three times, thinking about how badly he wanted to pee and I couldn’t help wondering: WHAT WAS THE FREAKIN POINT IN THAT? Why would he just walk this one place three times instead of just walking straight to the toilets?]]
Well, if you are really tired, you sometimes do shit like that, I guess. ^-^
I sometimes wonder if Theon would be a good painter/drawer. Maybe he would draw/carve little squids on the Stark funiture.
