Anonymous said: WHY DO YOU HATE SNAPE
I have answered this question in part before, but here’s the full fucking list:
- He’s a fucking Death Eater - Regardless of how much he claimed to love Lily, he still chose to ally himself with a genocidal cult hellbent on “cleansing” the wizarding world of the genetically “inferior.” (Do I have to explain why that’s fucked?) And J.K. Rowling herself has confirmed that if he hadn’t been in love with Lily, he would still be a Death Eater.
- Also, a bully - It’s bad enough that he’s a fucking wizard racist (blood elitist?), but he also verbally abuses his students. When a thirteen-year-old’s — who, by the way, has seen his parents tortured — literal worst fear is his teacher, that is absolutely unacceptable. Not to mention that during his Occlumency lessons with Harry he chose to sift through Harry’s happiest memories and openly taunt him about them.
- He wasn’t even that great of a friend to Lily holy shit - You know what good friends don’t do? Insult your heritage, hang out with people literally seeking to exterminate people of your heritage, act weirdly possessive of you, or call you racial slurs when you call them on their shit. Guess who did all of these things? Hint: Snape.
- Asked Voldemort to spare Lily, not giving a single shit about her husband and infant son - I don’t think I need to elaborate on this one.
- Did I mention that he is literally the same kind of blood elitist scum as all of the other villains? - Except he wanted to fuck the protag’s mother so all is forgiven according to like half the fandom??
In conclusion: Snape is a douche and I should probably turn anon off again because you people keep coming back holy shit.
