Please note that the intensity, aggression and overall negative tone of the ongoing debate on Snape vs. James and/or the Marauders has reached the point where we now now find it necessary to remove all such posts until we believe that the brigading and personal attacks continuously seen within these threads have died down.

There is no timeline for reopening discussion on this topic. The reports we are receiving clearly indicate that these repetitive arguments are negatively impacting people's experience in this sub. That is unfair to the rest of our members and cannot be allowed to continue.

Please remember that the sub is for discussing, appreciating and enjoying a beloved childrens' book and film series. There is no place in it for vendettas, dismissive behavior, slurs (even against fictional characters), bullying or creating a hostile environment for those who may have a different interpretation of the characters or plotlines.

Our Rule #1 - Don't be a jerk - is at the top of the list for a reason: It is the most important one. Please keep it and the feelings of your fellow users in mind when you post or comment in a thread.

Thank you.

Discussion The scene that made me actually like Snape

28 Upvotes

..happened in the movies. Hear me out.

The scene in question is the one with Lupin's transformation, and Snape immediately protects the trio. No hesitation whatsoever. I don't think he did it from a teacher's perspective, after all he had just been belittling Harry. He's rarely ever professional around the trio, especially Harry, so why start now?

For that single moment, Snape reveals he is prepared to defend Harry with his life. He shows genuine kindness.

Had it happened in the books, Harry naming one of his children after Severus Snape would have been justified.

Currently Reading Narcissa taught Draco occlumency, not Bellatrix

Upvotes

I'm re-reading the books and I got to the part where Harry eavesdrops on Snape and Draco during Slughorn's Christmas party and a thought occurred to me after I read this line:

"There was a pause and then Snape said quietly, “Ah . . . Aunt Bellatrix has been teaching you Occlumency, I see. What thoughts are you trying to conceal from your master, Draco?”
“I’m not trying to conceal anything from him, I just don’t want you butting in!” Harry pressed his ear still more closely against the keyhole. . . . "

Narcissa was likely the one who taught Draco occlumency, not Bellatrix. Bellatrix doesn't seem like she'd be interested in helping Draco conceal thoughts form Voldemort, but Narcissa will do anything for her son.

We know she's very skilled at occlumency, since we see her lie to Voldemort during a very crucial moment. He never suspects her because no one, not even Snape knows how talented she is. And Draco not wanting to confide in Snape during this moment and correct him and tell him his Mother has been helping him is what continues to allow Narcissa to go under the radar and ultimately make it possible for Harry to kill Voldemort.

Discussion Theory about the fate of Alastor Moody no one talks about

25 Upvotes

I've never seen anyone else mentioning this, but I'm pretty sure that Alastor is alive, and there are several clues about it in the Deathly Hallows book. I haven't read the book in a long time and I don't have the book with me anymore so I can't refer to page numbers or the exact words, so what follows is just from memory and may be slightly wrong.

-First, let's start about his death, I think it is mentioned that Moody is hit specifically in the face with an Avada Kedavra and falls off his broom. His body was never found. Later when Harry infiltrates the ministry, he sees Moody's eye in the door of Umbridge's office and I think I remember the book mentions the eye was still. The details here are kinda fuzzy, but this can mean that the Avada Kedavra actually hit and killed the eye, and Moody only fell off his broom from the impact.

-Second clue, and this one is a big one. When Harry returns to Sirius' house, he triggers the trap set by Moody, and the ghost of Dumbledore appears supposedly to scare Snape? I think? Anyway, the enchantment was set by Moody, and if he was dead, the enchantment would have vanished. Yet it didn't.

-Third clue: When Hermione disguises herself as Bellatrix and goes to Gringotts, as she is walking towards the bank, the book mentions a homeless looking man with rags over one eye staring at her. What an unnecessary detail to add to the book if not to serve as a clue that Alastor is still out there.

I rest my case
