Ok fine, I'll be honest. emotion_donotwant
I really doubted Dumbledore's trust of Snape, because I thought he couldn't be completely on the "good side."
By Oop, I thought maybe he's more good than bad.
Of course, that doesn't mean I liked it.
I really liked Snape a lot, so I didn't want him to be good! emotion_8c
So I was back to liking Snape when he killed Dumbledore... emotion_awesome
and then I hated him again when I found out the true story. emotion_facepalm
I never thought he was the good guy, but I loved him for being a snarky jerk. I loved his imperfections most of all.
The Prince's Tale was unexpected at the time, but its come to be my favorite chapter on Severus. He was truly a dynamic character and remains a favorite always.
I actually suspected Snape was evil and I even just got tired of Harry's 'Snape is up to something' in book 6 as well, I was completely convinced he was good but then of course the ending of that book floored me and yes after that I was fooled into thinking he was evil.
Although a friend of mine picked him being in love with Lily though because although he always insulted Harry's dad he never once spoke ill of his mother. I didn't make this connection although I did notice he never insulted Lily I didn't contribute that to him being in love with her.
i believed that he wasnt evil. i mean when i first read the part where he killed dumbledore i was in shock, and then i was screaming to myself that i wanted to kill him and then by the end of the book i was thinking about it and realized that he was probably doing it on dumbledores orders. i went back and reread that part about the unbreakable vow and read about how his hand shook but he didnt pull away and i was all like ahhh he didnt want to. and then i was thinking about it and i was thinking that maybe dumbeldore just pretended to die. or he did die but they were going to bring him back. but i always knew after that that snape was good. i bawled my eyes out when snape died and even more when it was shown for sure that he was good.
