... after reading your site (yeah, I subjected myself to punishment again
), especially the essay, you sure put a LOT of work into it. No wonder you've been AWOL for a while
(as I read that essay, it seemed to go on forever
I am especially impressed with your having found specific quotes throughout the book that correlate to your little nonsensical questions (GAD, that must have taken for days!!
And this page --> Click here
Is there like a "Magic Spell Deciphering for Dummies"
book that we can obtain, so we can make sense of that there page?
(all I can figure out is that the spell calls for milk, although I'm not sure if it's 100% or skim, cherries and soy beans. What's the cooking temperature supposed to be?
I think it was in the 2nd HP movie that Snape did some act of kindness that saved Harry or something (can't remember exactly what it was, but for some reason during that broomstick flying game thingy is what I remember), which gave me the impression that he was going to turn out to be one of those villainous figures that really wasn't so villainous after all, but then the 3rd movie had him looking mighty sinister again, so I then got all confused
BUT, after reading your essay, I have the answer!!
1) Snape is actually Lily's half-brother thus Harry's uncle, OR ...
2) Lily and Snape were once in love when they were teenagers (now, had this been an adult book, I would then go on to say, Harry is Snape's son however since this is geared more as a children's book, I think we'll leave it at they might have been in love but it just wasn't to be, thus she married James Potter), OR ...
3) Snape was in love with Lily, and Lily, feeling sorry for him, tried to treat him with kindness, yet she wasn't in love with him.
Oh and Dani
... since you're little Ms. Perfect
, I figured you'd want to know that you spelled Lily "Lilly" on this page: Click here
(hint: #12 after the quote
) Get your typos fixed!
Thus, Snape actually has an affinity toward Harry even though he treats him badly, and as you predicted, Dani
... Snape's true loyalty is with Dumbledore and for some reason Dumbledore needed for Snape to kill him, and at the end of it all, Harry will be shocked when all truth be known (kinda like how Luke was when he found out that Darth Vader was actually his Papa, etc. ... well, sorta, anyway
Sheesh, now you got me all excited to read the book
... well, that's a "sorta" too (I'll just wait for the movie
