"The bravest man I've ever known."
Real talk: almost cried watching this.
Harry Potter had a rough childhood and adolescence, but once he got to Hogwarts he also had friends, popularity, the respect and admiration of his peers. Severus Snape had only isolation, torment and the suspicion of everyone turned on him. The love of his life was a woman he could never have and he held her murdered body in his arms.
Stone. Cold. Bummer. (screengrab via kcawesome13)
Watching all of his big scenes from the Harry Potter series re-edited in chronological order by YouTube user kcawesome13, it's so easy to see how unfair fate was to Snape and how honorably he fulfilled his responsibilities.
Pour one out for Snape, let the tears roll and think about sacrifice. Yes, I know it's a story about wizards.
He was real to me! (screengrab via kcawesome13)
