Regarding the Snape post though. The Neville thing REALLY gets to me. The thing is that while the thing with Hermione is something people forget, EVERYONE remembers that Snape is Neville’s bogart. And that is because for the most part the scene is used for the punchline of Snape in Neville’s grandmother’s clothes. But if you think about it for more than .2 seconds you realise just how totally FUCKED UP that is. Snape is his biggest fear. And you can’t even argue that it’s because he doesn’t have any other legit fears. That it’s at all comparable to Ron having a spider. Because Neville has been through complete and utter shit. With what happened to his parents you cannot claim he’s had an easy life. And even if just the shitty way he’s treated at school was his biggest fear; you would expect that the worst would come from Draco or some other student. But no, his worst fear is one of his teachers.
So even if the whole greatest fear is Snape thing was mostly for the sake of the joke, that just makes me mad for different reasons. Give that joke to some other kid. Neville deserves better. There’s two options. Either Snape is really horrible and the bogart position is earned, or Neville’s character deserved more than a punch-line for a bogart. Because you cannot tell me he fears a strict teacher more than the death eaters or the feeling of his parents looking at him like a stranger. There’s either a reason it’s Snape or character development pushed aside for a joke.
Remember when Snape made fun of the size of a teenage girls teeth and she subsequently chose to change them so they were permanently smaller? What a hero.
Remember when Snape abused a thirteen year-old student (whose parents hand been tortured to the point that they didn’t even recognize him) so much that he was more afraid of him than he was of anything else in the world? Bravest man I’ve ever known.
