Day 5 - Saddest Moment
( sorry this is late, life got busy)
When I read the books, all of the deaths seemed to hurt in some way or another but there was one death that actually made me tear up.
The passing of Severus Snape was extremely emotional and I would guess one of the hardest deaths that Harry had to get over. If you think about Snape’s life and the things he had to do, the household be grew up with, the friends and choices he made, its depressing. Here was a man that could that in almost every way was the opposite of Harry and made all of the wrong choices.
Snape met Lily as a child and if you look, she is the only light in his life. He never really made many other friends let alone close ones, he was bullied by the marauders and then he pushed the one good thing he had (lily) away because he was trying to fit in with his slytherin “friends”. That action alone was probably the biggest mistake of his like because after that he went and became a death eater which caused him to lose Lily. Thus he became a spy for the Order.
I think the real sadness is that when Harry came to Hogwarts, it forced Snape to both see the face of his tormenter from Hogwarts but also feel the guilt he had over Lily, every day for nearly 7 years. And on top of all that he also had to watch the last connection he had to Lily, hate him for all of that time…. His death just speaks volumes of how the choices we make today can mean a huge difference down the road. How he never got to love who he wanted, to have the life he so wanted. Then he died before he could properly explain ( due to both his and harry’s stubbornness) his love for Lily and his reasons for the actions; for everything he has done for Harry.
To think of the man that Severus Snape could have become and instead did the exact opposite is heart breaking and soul crushing.
Day 4 - Favorite Villain
Dolores Umbridge, hands down. When she came in to the series, she brought with her all the things I hate about government and people with power to begin with. She became one of those people that was doing terrible things but there was little to nothing you can do about it. She took over Hogwarts so perfectly and legally that it scary to think it could actualy happen.
Umbridge is a different villain compared to Voldemort. Voldemort used power, grand gestures and fear from pain and death to get followers and make people fear him. That worked ( clearly) but there is something to said about the villain that sneaks in. One that does things slowly and gradually so that most don’t see it and does it so that if you do notice there is nothing that can be done about it.
I have never hated a character like I hate Umbridge. and for that I have to love her.
I mean look at that smile… EVIL!
Day 3 - Favorite Character
I Love Draco because I feel that he has one the best character arcs. He starts out as this little shithead that you hate and evolves to someone that must make a choice. Family or what you believe in. If it weren’t for book 6, he would be my favorite character at all but the depth there that is explored more in DH, is amazing.
Plus, the ferret scene, Feindfire and the bathroom scene are some of my favorite scenes in the series
