Very true. Nobody is born good or evil, they are shaped that way by the world around them. The thing most people seem to overlook when it comes to claiming Snape is bad, is that he came from a broken home. We dont see very much of his family history, just that he grew up relatively poor, and didnt Kids Harry Potter Lucius Malfoy Caught Poster T-Shirt seem to have a lot of friends.

He was the outcast, she was the pretty popular girl… and this became more evident as they grew up and went through school etc… their friendship meant much more to him than it did to her, because she made friends much easier than he did, and when he started to realise this fact it frustrated him and he lashed out, destroying the very thing that kept him from straying away from the light…Kids Harry Potter Lucius Malfoy Caught Poster T-Shirt that kind of self loathing can be very self destructive trust me. Snape wanted to be a better person, but when everyone else gave up on him he closed off, which is why he was such a skilled Legilimense. So can you blame him for ending up befriending the blood purists? the group that feels ostracized and blames society for all their problems? I certainly dont.

And like most people like this in society, the drug addicts and the extremists/radicals etc, it was only when the consequences of his own actions really hit home that he was able to pull himself out of his downward spiral. Even when he knew there was no way to undo what he had done, he strived every day after that to make amends for it all. Because they’re assholes. Writing is hard work.

And… There are millions of other books to read instead of complaining about this one. I have problems with her writing style too but on the whole she’s actually very goo Just because you are a good writer doesn’t make you immume to constructive criticism. As a Ravenclaw, you should be the first to understand that.
