Ask me anything

love the canucks

All of time and space; everywhere and anywhere; every star that ever was. Where do you want to start?

Hogwarts will always be there, to welcome you home. -JK Rowling

“I don’t know where I am, I just know I’m running.  Sometimes it’s like I’ve lived a thousand lives in a thousand places.  I’m born, I live, I die.  And always there’s the Doctor.  Always I’m running to save the Doctor.  Again and again and again.  And he hardly ever hears me, but I’ve always been there right from the very beginning, right from the day he started running.”

Ugh. Yes. 
I find the Snape/Lily narrative to be really horrific, honestly. The fact that we are asked to feel oh so bad for poor little Snape makes me a little bit queasy. 
Because, yes, I do sympathize with Snape for having a rough childhood. 
But he was a horrible friend to Lily. He ignored her feelings. He screamed racial slurs at her. He favored the idealized version of her he had built up in his mind over the REAL her (I think it is significant that James’ patronus is a STAG, showing compatibility with Lily; while Snape is a DOE, showing a mimicry of Lily). That idealization and inability to reconcile how his own actions contributed to the failure of their friendship literally KILLED Lily.
I understand that we can show some sympathy for him. Watching someone self destruct their own relationships because of abuse and peer pressure and the tribulations of childhood? That’s tragic. 
But then he grows up to emotionally abuse Lily’s son for having a physical resemblance to her husband. 
And we’re supposed to feel sorry for him? We’re supposed to think it’s lovely and sweet that Harry names his child after the teacher who emotionally abused him for years? Who emotionally abused OTHER children for years as well? 
The fans who sit around and cry about how Lily SHOULD have picked Snape, how Snape DESERVED her? How James was a horrible douche and Lily was a bitch for choosing him? Ugh. No. nno no no no on oonononononononoooooo. 

also snape actually ruined a mans career fully knowing he probably couldn’t get another one.

Oh the shit that went down with Remus makes me really want to break his teeth. 
Remus had been HOMELESS. Remus had spent much of his adult life implied to be on the streets, unable to find work, and completely unable to make new friendships or relationships after Lily and James died, Peter vanished, and Sirius went to jail (ALL of which is DIRECTLY Snape’s god damn fault.)
And then just as Remus picks himself back up again? Becomes a positive force and father figure to Harry? Snape deliberately and purposely gets him FIRED so that he will be unemployed and potentially homeless AGAIN. 
How the fuck am I supposed to show any sympathy for an adult who completely lacks the ability to show sympathy, or even human decency, to others? 

Plus I still think that would have had some idea that Sirius wasn’t a Death Eater, even if he didn’t know Pettigrew was and therefore didn’t care that an innocent man spent 12 years in prison.
If Snape truly believed that Sirius was guilty for Lily’s death he would have reacted differently when they saw each other in POA. Instead Snape acted like a bitter school-boy. 
The fact that he remained loyal to Lily (is rather creepy) and that he betrayed Voldemort for her son’s sake does prove he was a brave man, but he was also a sick, flawed, bitter man who couldn’t move on from his teen years.

Reblogging because this comment perfectly sums up so many of my thoughts on Snape. I find it difficult to have sympathy for a character who shows none towards others (even when his lousy choices have already done them significant harm), or to respect a character who demands respect from others while offering none in return.
