I'm a philosophy student that tends to post about really serious things unseriously and about really unserious things seriously.
I was once described as a "beautiful, intelligent iguana".
It’s because he wishes Neville would have been the Chosen One instead of Harry (and by extension, would have saved Lily’s life).
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING.
I CAN’T BELIEVE I NEVER FIGURED THAT OUT.
AND I WAS SUCH A DICK BECAUSE I KEPT THINKING THAT SNAPE WAS JUST A DICK TO NEVILLE.
how the fuck did none of my HP forums ever figure this out
Wait a second: it’s been about a year since I’ve read through all the books, so I’m a bit fuzzy, but did Snape even know the specifics of the prophecy. I thought the only ones who knew were Dumbledore, Voldemort, HarryRonHermione, and maybe some death eaters (along with Professor Trelawney of course)? Everyone knew there was an intimate connection between Harry and Voldemort, obviously, but I didn’t think anyone really knew the connection between Neville, Harry, Voldemort, and the prophecy.
Correct me if I’m wrong here though, because I really can’t remember.
