Madiha gud topic!! though i don't think snape is evil but hes not even gud either!!
i can't justify his actions against any1 including harry. i always find it hard 2 believe that snape v.well knew that how insulting it is wen sum1 bullies any1 but still he bullies harry & even neville?? how can we justify it by saying that he bullies harry bcoz he sees in him the man whom lilly chose & who bullied him in the school time!!
i think Lupin rightly said in the PoA - Is a schoolboy grudge worth putting an innocent man back inside Azkaban" where it shows the true self of snape!!
why did snape always bullied Neville 2 the extent that he made him nervous & never allowed him 2 b helped?? wat type of gudness is this?? just 2 retain his bad image why did he need 2 bully the innocent ppl or harm them!!
it means he never matured. his bad behaviour 2wards Sirius can b understandable but take 2 the nxt generation. i can't justify him. i can't justify his behaviour even 2wards Lupin.
wats the use of saving harry if he has 2 make his life a hell?? who wants such a hard life?? even vodemort wen possessed harry in the OoP & asked dumbledore 2 kill harry if death is not 2 b feared but the moment harry said he wanted 2 die but pain shud b stopped voldemort released him!!so its really hard 2 live a life where sum1 is bulling!!
he may not b a villain but hes not even hero either. so i don't've any sympathy 4 him. even if he has kept his bullying 4 harry only then its understandable 2 sum extent but still i wudn't'd liked him but why neville, ron or hermoine??
just scolding phineas 4 calling hermoine "mud-blood" is not enough wen time & again by ur behaviour u insult her 4 being a muggle born indirectly!!
lily was right that why didn't he want 2 call her "mud-blood" wen he himself consider all muggle borns like this only! just bcoz he likes or frnds wid lily(in lily's opinion) he doesn't've prob wid her but apart from her after her death he never treated hermoine like oder students!!
imagine if he didn't fall in luv wid lily or even frnds wid her he wudn't'd cared 4 any muggle born or fighting 4 truth & he wud'd been proud deatheater like Lucious Malfoy & his family!!
so most of the time snape disgusts me barring sum occasions!!
