Haiku About Severus Snape

He’s Severus Snape
misunderstood thought evil
but hero in end

    Oh gosh … I cried that part where he got killed by Voldermort’s snake. It was too sad. My eighteen years old girl grew up with Harry Potter and every Christmas we watch the DvDs because she got it every year. Now, she is as old as them! 🙂

      I love the Harry Potter books and movies.

      I always felt a great deal of empathy for Severus Snape even from the beginning books.

      In The Half-Blood Prince, I felt sympathy for Severus because he was picked on and bullied by his classmates since I was bullied and picked on in Junior High School.

      When it looked like he had betrayed Dumbledore, I felt shattered.

      Because I felt like Snape.

      Bullied, picked on, so I struck back.

      But then I thought I could be good in the end.

      Like Snape.

      But then it looked like Snape had betrayed Dumbledore.

      I was shattered.

      But then in The Deathly Hallows, it turned out he was really working for Dumbledore after all.

      And when Harry told his son that “Severus was the bravest man I ever knew and yet his house had been Slytherin”, I had tears in my eyes.

      • Sherrie de Valeria said,

        When I saw that part where Snape killed Dumbledore, when Dumbledore nod his head towards him, I knew that it was PLANNED all along. At the same time, it was a test also for him on whose side he stays. But Snape had no choice and to agreed with it that Snape MUST BE THE ONE to kill Dumbledore.

        The FINAL film had showed his Memories when Potter took his tears and had seen the TRUTH behind Snape’s mind & heart. That part had me cried, to know that Snape had love Potter’s mother all those years STILL and never cease to love her and would do anything for her. He had chosen the good side and pretend to work for Voldermort all those time …

        It was a brilliant way to put Snape in such a position, and I say, that JK Rowling is a damn intelligent woman. Somehow, I knew it that Snape was meant to kill Dumbledore as it was what they had planned all along – for reasons that both Snape and Dumbledore want to protect Potter and Draco Malfroy at the same time. Dumbledore does not want that Draco to kill him just as Voldermort had asked the boy too. Dumbledore knew it that it would scar Draco for life if that boy is the ONE that should kill him in the first place …

        And Snape had made a magical promise with Draco’s mother, to protect her son as well in this darkest time. So, so brilliant plot.

        Such a very long time that I have never read or seen a brilliant plot made by an author. Rowling has a great broader mind – that woman! 🙂

    I read the book before I saw each film.
    So I read the book The Half-Blood Prince before I saw the movie.
    I think I read The Deathly Hallows before I saw The Half-Blood Prince movie too.
    So I didn’t have the visual image of Dumbledore’s nod when I first encountered Dumbledore’s death.
    I thought Snape had actually done it.
    It wasn’t until I read The Deathly Hallows that I finally found out that Snape only did it on Dumbledore’s orders.
    I agree with you about J.K. Rowling being an extremely intelligent woman.
    I gathered that reading all the Latin sentences and expressions in her books.
    One has to be an awfully intelligent person to be able to read and write Latin.. 🙂
