This might be the most infuriating rumour about Harry Potter I’ve ever seen.
It’s just a stupid rumour, JK never said anything about it. Snape and Lily had had no contact for years, Snape was a Death Eater still severing for Lord Voldemort and Lily was in hiding. Let’s not forget that only after Snape realised that Lily was on Voldemort’s hit-list because of his own doing that he switched sides and became a double-agent and he was perfectly fine with the idea of Lily’s husband and baby son dying if it meant that she could live.
Previously to this the last contact they would have had was at Hogwarts, I’m assuming their fifth year.
I think I can dub this “Pity Sex with consequences.”
It’s probably due to the mass effect it’s had with the fandom. The jewelry on etsy, the t-shirts, the tattoos… I think it’s ridiculous. I loved this part in the book/movie, but I think the quote is overused and overrated.
I’m not hating on those who love it, but I just don’t
I have yet to see any merchandise with this quote on it…the idea is kind of off-putting.
It touches my heart that Snape loved Lily but he’s an asshole.
Interesting…although Lily’s hair was this deep, dark red, to Snape, that’s probably close enough.
Not everyone is as forgiving as you, or Harry is. He was a bully. Not just to Harry, but to all of his students who weren’t in Slytherin. If I knew someone like that in my life, I wouldn’t forgive them. Would I sympathize with everything they went through? Yes. Would I forgive them for being a prick all of the time? Absolutely not.
I don’t hate Snape. But I don’t like him either.
J.K Rowling herself has said that he’s spiteful and a bully. He only protected Harry because of Lily. If he hadn’t loved Lily, he wouldn’t have gave two shits about Harry. Don’t believe me? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBLqWffUSWI Straight out of the Queen’s mouth.
“She deserved someone who would challenge her,”
“who wouldn’t accept ordinary, who would want her to be the best she could be”
“She deserved someone like Snape.”
It’s less “EW Sermione/Hape or whatever the portmandeau is”, but when did Snape encourage people?
I really do love Snape, bu still in the last movie I think that James Potter was literally pushed aside and he was shown like the “home-wrecker” for Snape and Lily.
Lily and James were in love, but we didn’t see it that much in the movies.
James is Harry’s father, Lily loved James.
Yeah…James was shown to be this little prick. Yeah, we have an explanation that showed why Snape loved Lily, but we never saw why she picked James (or did we. I don’t think so).
Honestly, I don’t really understand why Harry Potter “fans” fight about every little thing in Harry Potter. You fight about whether Ginny deserved Harry. Whether Ron deserved Hermione. Who should have been with who. Whether Snape was actually great guy or not. Who the true hero was. If you don’t read the books and you just watch movies that you’re not a true fan. And the thing I see the most that everyone fights about is who Lily should have chosen, Snape or James. Yes, James was a bully, and that wasn’t right. But, he grew out of it. I feel like you all forget that Snape bullied the kids at Hogwarts throughout the first 6 books/movies. He was a bully, too. In the end, James and Snape both had become better men, though. James loved Lily just as much as Snape did. I think people don’t realize that if Lily would have chosen Snape over James that there would be no Harry Potter which would have resulted in no books, and in turn would have resulted in no movies. Everyone that fought in the Battle of Hogwarts were heroes. Not just one certain person. Loving someone is not about who deserves who, it’s about love. And, Snape in the end was a truly great guy. I feel like if you’re a true fan, you won’t fight about all of these things. You will just enjoy the books/movies how JK Rowling wrote them. And, you won’t criticize the people who don’t like to read for just watching the movies. They’re just as much fans of the story as you are, and saying they’re not is just dumb. End of Story.
Not necessarily; It would just be a different story.
I don’t think Lily and James truly loved each other. I think they only got married because Lily was pregnant. James viewed her as a trophy and I really wish she and Severus could have been together.
I think Lily had too much pride to be married out of wedlock. If James had really thought she was a trophy, he probably would have saved himself alone on October 31st.
