HP: Oh Sev... by Loleia HP: Oh Sev... by Loleia
I'm not a huge fan of Lily and Snape (I like them well enough, I'm just not crazy about them) but the other day while listening to the Deathly Hallows audiobook I started thinking about whether Lily ever thought of Snape after she got married. Like, if she ever wondered if he was okay, or missed him or anything. I think she probably did think of him from time to time.

i think she loved him, as a friend, and so definitely would have thought about him and maybe regretted breaking off her friendship with him. but i think that after leaving school, she would have admitted to herself that snape loved her as more than a friend and, being sensible, would have known that it would only hurt them both to reconnect. plus it would have bothered james.

Oh gosh...This...This is just beautiful. The wistful regret coming from Lily is beautifully depicted - and I *love* how you drew her, especially those lips and freckles!

I think that Lily loved Snape as a friend - and that kinda of love isn't one just to fade away. I think she defiantly thought of him and regretted losing his friendship, but she also knew that she had to remain strong and stick with the choice she made. I could see her feeling like a hypocrite if she decided to remain connected to him as long as he was into the Dark Arts. But she's still human, and she would miss him...

Woah, quite expressive. I've just reread parts from the book recently (I was too tired and impatient after such a long day and simply turned over to The Prince's Tale, buh) and by the end I was crying all over again.
Not that I'm a huge fangirl or anything... :D

But how come Lily never really realized what was going on, seriously?
And this pic shows it nicely, honestly... Yup, the exact same look on Snape's face what I pictured. The one you never see otherwise, because it's all hidden away for your sake, for the other"s sake, yet it shows through from time to time when one's not careful enough.

I sort of hate Lily for ditching him. I understand she had her reasons--but the straw that broke the camels back was sort of retarded. Especially when you consider just how remorseful he was over it. He absolutely begged her to forgive him...and she just turned her nose up at him. I'm sure it hurt her too--but she knew all the crap he'd been through and how she was his only true friend. Then to turn around and marry his worst enemy*. How on earth did she manage to fall in love with someone that was...quite frankly...cruel? Ug.

Anywho...sorry for the random rant. I've just been mildly irritated at her lately. I'm doing a Marauder's era RP and my contempt for her is growing rather strong due to it.

*James is my second favorite character next to Severus. I certainly do NOT hate him despite how that statement may sound.

birdg Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2011
I think ditching him because he was more concerned with being a racist towards people like her and even admits he plans on joining a terrorist group dedicated to MURDERING people like her is a good reason.

I mean, it's like a black girl finding out her white bff plans on joining the KKK after calling her the n-word and using it about either people.

It's weird that in the book Snape gets that what he did was wrong but so many of his fans do not.

HideTheDecay Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Pardon me, but I get that what he did was wrong.

However, I do think each individual person deserves more careful scrutiny than that. That is an awfully vague way to lump all the Death Eaters together. They all joined for various reasons...some more innocent then others. I happen to believe that Severus did lay on the more 'pure' intentions bit...

Let us consider the fact that he was raised Muggle who was likely abusive (verbally, if nothing else). It is understandable that he might develop a certain...distaste for Muggles even as a child. Not to mention his mother was a Slytherin and (despite the fact that she married a Muggle) he was probably taught at a young age the 'differences' in blood purity. If anything, the fact that she married a Muggle that turned out to be a total berk might have even strengthen her desire to teach Severus about blood purity (so he doesn't repeat her mistake).

Of course, this is only speculation, but let's assume he was given at least a bit of a lesson since he balked at Lily being a Muggle even as a child slightly. HOWEVER, he was able to overcome this prejudice and befriend her. I believe his friendship with her proves that he didn't 'really' buy into the blood thing. I bet if he had been sorted into any other house, he would have never joined the Deaths Eaters because I don't think he really believes what they preach. However, he WAS sorted into Slytherin.

This might have not even been a problem...but he was targeted by the Marauders and made to be hated and mocked by a majority of the school. His only true friend was Lily and I bet he was desperate for acceptance by ANYONE else. It probably would have helped if he had been given the opportunity to make friends outside of his house, but thanks to James and Sirius...I don't think he ever got that. Everyone considered him a freak for his interests and rather than give him a chance…they just sided with the ‘popular’ group. So he had to find acceptance within Slytherin and he never really got a chance to escape the idea of blood purity.

Also realize that he was constantly made to be less than a person by James and Sirius. So…I bet the idea of being apart of a strong group…was rather appealing. He’d spent his entire Hogwarts career having his nose rubbed in the dirt…he wanted to finally have power. Even JK Rowling admitted that the reason he did it was to impress Lily. Was that smart? Not really. I sort of get where he’s coming from…but he was clearly went about ‘proving himself’ all wrong. I don’t think this excuses him…but I think that…at this point in time…the Death Eater or whatever…manifesto wasn’t so set in stone. I don’t think Severus joined with the thought, “I’m going to kill muggles and mudbloods.”

I mean, consider Regulus. He joined as well. It wasn’t until he joined that he realized what was going on and chose to defy the Dark Lord. I’d be willing to bet Severus didn’t realize just what they were about either when he was 15 and still in school. So I do believe there is an argument for some degree of ignorance here.

As it were—I don’t believe Severus had declared his wish to join them at that point anyways. Lily simply stated that she didn’t like who his friends were and the stuff that they do. This is a perfectly acceptable worry and apprehension for her to have…his ‘friends’ were shit and doing bad things…but I hardly think it compares to “admits he plans on joining a terrorist group dedicated to MURDERING people”.

By the way, before Severus said the “mudblood” line…she had to hold back a laugh and a smile at his predicament. What a great friend. She’s so bloody perfect, isn’t she? It’s not completely hypocritical of her at all.

I think Lily should have been able to look at him and realize that he was clearly in love with her and wrapped around her finger. If she really wanted to...if it worried her so much...she could have helped him. I can only assume...but I don't think she treated him as well as she should have in their friendship. Just from the clips I've seen...you would think that over the years she would realize see who he really was...and be able to be the friend he needed. Instead...she seemed to get short with him easily and sort of...brushes him off...she just seems a bit selfish.

Especially the bit about getting together with James. Even if James had changed…what it really boils down to is her turning a blind eye to everything awful James had ever done to her previous childhood best friend. And that’s a taint that shouldn’t be allowed to wash off…but she’s able to forgive him for years of cruelty but she cannot forgive a stricken and begging Severus for a bad name and some misguidance.

The point is…I don’t think him wanting to join the Death Eaters has anything to do with her ditching him at that point in time and even if it did…as I have explained above…Severus has had it hard and while that doesn’t justify his actions…it doesn’t justify Lily’s either. Just sayin.

Yeah, I'm not having this debate here, it's rude to the artist and quite frankly, there's nothing more to say.

Snape was not entitled to Lily's friendship and he cared more about being a racist jerk than being a good friend and that did not change until Lily's life was on the line. Lily did not actually laugh at him her lip twitched, Lily did care about him and could have loved him if he had loved her then more than he loved being Voldemort's toady - that's JKR's own assessment.

All the "poor Snape" arguments in the world do not change these facts and are both misogynistic (let's focus on the poor guy and not the girl who was being hunted like an animal) and ignore the obvious bigotry directed Lily's way. They are ridiculous.

The End.

Your response clearly shows that you refuse to see it from another point of view.

And as far as it being rude to the artist, I hardly think so. It's nothing more than a discussion about the characters featured in her picture.

However, as you do not wish to continue the discussion, I will not point out my views on what you have said previously.

Maybe my comment has nothing to do with anything, but I was just taking a look at this amazing Loleia's drawing when I read your signature. Seriously, I can't stop laughing (Im so not a remus/sirius shipper, actually, I hate it when people pair them off, but God, I don't know if it just caught me out of guard, but Im laughing so hard)

I read what I wrote again, and I think I'm an idiot. Oh, well..

But yeah. I love my siggy. -pet siggy-
